Hackers appeared to have commandeered the YouTube page of the venerable “Sesame Street” children’s show Sunday, reprogramming the page with content brought to you by the letter “X.”

The show page was taken offline Sunday afternoon, and visitors were greeted with a message from the video website informing them it had been shut down “due to repeated or severe violations of our community guidelines.” Users who called up the account earlier had found explicit sex videos instead of Muppets.

“YouTube’s Community Guidelines prohibit graphic content,” a YouTube representative told CNN. “As always, we remove inappropriate material as soon as we are made aware of it.”

  9. classic Trolling. like when they hacked the epilepsy association forums and placed tons of flashing lights on posts. Must have been 4chan trolls as the random attacks with no meaning are their calling card. In a way they are trying to reveal vulnerabilities but yes that is going over the top.

    The BEST this hacker can do is put porn on sesame street’s youtube??? What a fucking waste of time and talent. Try putting your skills to better use, say humiliating a large bank.

    What a wanker.
