A concerned mother’s viral Facebook post has once again highlighted the dangers of the popular game, Roblox.

*WARNING this post includes graphic and distressing images

In the graphic post, North Carolina mom Amber Petersen details the horrifying moment her 7-year-old daughter’s avatar was ‘violently gang-raped’ in the game by three other players.

Disturbing screenshots shared alongside her story show two male characters attacking the avatar before a third, female character jumps on top of her.

Ms Petersen is now calling on parents to delete the app from their kids’ devices and ensure all precautions have been taken to secure other programs.

She says she has been left feeling ‘traumatized and violated on so many levels,’ and is now concerned about how the disturbing event may have affected her daughter.

I couldn’t Believe it!

‘At first, I couldn’t believe what I was seeing,’ Petersen wrote on Facebook.

‘My sweet and innocent daughter’s avatar was being violently gang-raped on a playground by two males. A female observer approached them and proceeded to jump on her body at the end of the act.

‘Then the 3 characters ran away, leaving my daughter’s avatar laying on her face in the middle of the playground.’

“Words cannot describe the shock, disgust, and guilt that I am feeling right now, but I’m trying to put those feelings aside so I can get this warning out to others as soon as possible.

“Thankfully, I was able to take screenshots of what I was witnessing so people will realize just how horrific this experience was.

“Although I was immediately able to shield my daughter from seeing the entire interaction, I am shuddering to think of what kind of damage this image could have on her psyche, as well as any other child that could potentially be exposed to this.”

Her warning post on Facebook has received over 6000 shares and 1500 reactions.

Roblox Responds

In response, Roblox says it is cracking down even harder on potential ‘bad actors.’

‘We were outraged to learn that Roblox’s community policies and Rules of Conduct were subverted,’ a Roblox spokesperson said in a statement to Dailymail.com.

‘We have identified how this bad actor created the offending action and are putting additional safeguards in place to reduce the possibility of this happening again in the future.

‘In addition, the offender was identified and has been permanently banned from the platform and we have suspended the game,’ the firm’s official statement continues.

‘We have zero tolerance for this behaviour. Our work to ensure a safe platform is always evolving and remains a top priority for us.’

But this is not the first time

Recently we shared how a Mum was disgusted when she realised her six-year-old daughter was playing in a graphic ‘sex room’ on the popular kids game.

We have also shared numerous warnings from parents after discovering terrifying chats and messages on the Roblox app – read more on that here.

  • I hope there is been plenty of warnings about this in the media and that parents monitor what their children see or use on-line. Hopefully the Police will be able to trace it, shut the site down and charge the person/people responsible.

  • My God, what is happening? Parents need to be vigilant. You can’t just give your child a screen and hope that all is well in cyber world. I love that this child showed her mum, many others may not have. This is becoming so commonplace now with kids apps and games that parents just need to be vigilant.

  • The developers need to rethink their audience. Just another reason why multiplayer games should be banned in most households.
