    Default Sesame Street' YouTube Channel Hacked With Sex Videos

    On Sunday, the YouTube channel devoted to the iconic PBS children's show "Sesame Street" was hacked and crammed with open sex videos in place of clips boasting loveable Bert, Ernie, Elmo and the remaining our favorite Muppets.

    The kiddie channel was taken offline Sunday afternoon with those visiting welcomed by a note informing the community it was "owing to repeated or harsh violations of our community guidelines."

    "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."

    The non-profit organization behind Sesame Street - Sesame Workshop - rapidly issued a regret on Sunday.

    "Our channel was compromised and we are presently working with YouTube/Google to restore our original content. We always strive to provide age-appropriate content for our viewers and hope to resolve this problem quickly."

    As of 1:13 a.m Monday, the channel was still not up and running.
