The allegations made against a mother in Arizona are absolutely horrific. According to police in Maricopa, the woman behind the "Fantastic Adventures" YouTube channel has been arrested and charged with abusing her seven adopted children by beating them, molesting them, locking them in a closet and refusing them food, bathroom breaks, or even water.
Maricopa authorities said they acted on a tip from Machelle Hackney's grown daughter, who told them her mother had been abusing her siblings. The abuse was punishment for failing to participate in the YouTube show, or for forgetting their lines, police said.
The "Fantastic Adventures" YouTube channel was incredible popular. Since the news broke, YouTube has demonetized the account.
