Roblox bans a developer from an episode of ‘The Kardashians’ that shows Kim Kardashian’s son discovering a game that claims to contain a new sex tape featuring the reality star .
The episode showed six-year-old St. West running to Kardashian with his iPad, gleefully showing her her infamous crying face being advertised on the kids’ big platform. However, things quickly turned sour once Kardashian found out that the game was apparently promoting a “new sex tape” featuring her (thanks, polygon).
Later in the episode, Kardashian calls Yeh while crying, expressing her concern that their son might see her explicit image on what should be a children’s platform. “It’s a game made by Roblox, and when you click on it, it shows ‘Kim’s new sex tape,'” she told him. She later threatened to sue, saying: “I have all the time, all the money and all the resources to burn them all.”
At first I thought it was funny when she cried over a roblox game, then I watched the full clip and I really felt bad for her 🙁 pic.twitter.com/Zv1gFs12OTApril 15, 2022
Since the episode aired, Roblox has confirmed that it has banned offending developers, while clarifying that no explicit content is coming into the experience.
“The referenced video was never available on our platform – we have strict moderation and policies in place to protect our community, including zero tolerance for any pornography that violates our community’s rules,” Polygon said in a statement. “Text references to tapes that bypassed our filters were quickly removed, fortunately only visible to a very small number of people on the platform. We also quickly removed the relevant experience and banned community developers from participating in the experience.”
Although Roblox is primarily marketed to and played by children, there are widespread concerns about lack of moderation and the exploitation of young children. people make games Forays into predatory practices, which have made it hard for developers to make money, coupled with a follow-up investigation examining how it tempered its collectibles market.
