A popular YouTube vlogger investigated after posting a video of a ‘prank’ where he feeds his kids ice-cream laced with laxatives and then records them crying in pain.

Cordero James Brady, 29, from Nevada, runs the YouTube channel CJ SO COOL, which has over 5.6million followers. The channel is monetized – which means he sells his channel to advertisers, with the more people watching the ads, the more money they stand to make, shares Daily Mail.

Last week his channel was suspended over the vicious practical joke that appeared to have made his children physically sick. The ‘laxative ice cream’ video was permanently removed.

In the vlog, Brady films himself dosing his three children’s ice cream with Pedia-Lax and then feeding it to them. He then films 90-minutes later, showing his children screaming and crying in pain.

‘My stomach hurts,’ screams one of his kids. ‘Oh my goodness, this boy’s stomach is broken!’ he jokes.

Then, he films his youngest two- a boy and a girl, in separate bathrooms, as they sit on the toilet crying, trying to close the door on him- as he continues to hold the camera on them.

It is not yet clear what charges have been made and although it would seem the video was filmed two years ago, it appears YouTube only removed the video last week when the site babe.net initially reported on it.

  • How cruel! It’s really not a funny prank. I’d be livid if someone did that to me let alone having it posted on the internet!!!


  • Some people have lost sight of what good parenting is … to do this to your kids just to make money is horrendous. Poor kids !

    • Parenting is an important and serious job with so many responsibilities. This parent surely needs parenting classes and intervention! The thought of this still sickens me.


  • Disgusting as a parent to do that intentionally for views


  • I feel so bad for these kids. This is so wrong and put simply, it’s abuse. I hope the ‘dad’ got into trouble.


  • He is an abusive parent and the worry is what else he has done to those poor kids. Cj SO COOL sHould be CJ SO CRUEL!!


  • This is flat out abuse, and an invasion of his kids’ privacy.


  • This is sickening and surely it is abuse? I cannot understand a parent doing this or anyone finding it remotely funny. I would never watch it and don’t know why anyone would. Just such a violation of trust and so sad. :(


  • When my daughter was at school, we had repeated issues of kids stealing her lunchbox food, leaving her with nothing on a daily basis. I made a batch of muffins with salt instead of sugar to deter the thefts. If this hadn’t have worked, I planned to use laxatives in the next batch of muffins. I didn’t realise they caused pain. Why did it take so long for this to be reported? Such a heartless thing to do to your kids


  • Terrible!!! How can someone even thinking about making such a prank??? :-(
