"I was shocked", Dr Hess said, noting that since then, the scene has been spliced into several more videos from the popular Nintendo game Splatoon on YouTube and YouTube Kids.
YouTube has also been reporting the comments and accounts to the law enforcement agencies that comply with the federal law.
Yesterday, Jessica Ballinger discovered that her recent videos were being demonetised by YouTube. "We enforce these policies vigorously, and if we find a video that violates them, we immediately take action and remove ads", a YouTube spokesperson said in an email statement to BuzzFeed News.
"While the creators of these videos may have done nothing wrong, we're going above and beyond our existing protections in the near term on content that may include or endanger minors", Team YouTube wrote in a blog about the changes.
YouTube has responded by stating that they're working hard to solve the problem.

And be aware of what videos your own kids are posting of themselves. The information can be posted in the comment sections for videos featuring minors, and can include time stamps that show the child exposing their bare legs or back.
A Youtube spokesperson said that strict action was taken following the allegation, disabling the comments and removing comments on videos with minors in them as part of a larger ongoing effort to coordinate with the appropriate authorities and promote child safety.
Apparently, searching for typical videos on YouTube like women showing off their "bikini haul" can lead to other videos showcasing children in exploitative ways.
