Popular YouTube vloggers, the LaBrant Fam, decided to pull an April Fool’s prank on their six-year-old daughter, however the internet did not find it funny at all.

The popular YouTube family with over 8 million subscribers decided to prank their young  daughter Everleigh, into thinking they were giving away their family puppy, Carl.

But instead of a hilariously funny outcome, the video is pretty heartbreaking to watch, and led to some major fan backlash.

They tell the young girl they simply don’t have time to care for him properly, and they’re moving to a new house soon that just won’t suit him.

Everleigh finally sits up with some cajoling and clings to Carl while her parents explain that he can’t stay – and then ask if she’d like to give him away to someone. While recording.

After an excruciating few minutes (with dad Sav cracking up in the background a time or two), they break the news to her that it’s a prank, which just seems to make her cry more.

“Too far?” Cole asks the camera, to which the internet replied, “Um, yep, kind of.”

The response grew rapidly with people accusing the couple of being terrible parents.

Funny or Did they go too far?

  • Video is unavailable, but I can imagine what it was like. Not the sort of prank I’d choose that’s for sure. I remember my grandfather when I was a kid bought fake dog poo and put in on the back doormat and picked it up with his hands etc. Pretending it was real and from their dog. Why not put a fake poo on her pillow instead lol

  • I really don’t understand this, I have watched a few of the vlogs and they are such a loving family, but everyone makes mistakes

  • That’s just cruel. How could someone think that would be funny.


    • A prank that causes any distress is just not funny.

  • Oh that’s heartbreaking and not at all funny. I can only imagine how I would feel if someone did that to me now, so imagine how that poor little girl felt.
    That’s really quite cruel ????

  • To cause your own child deliberate stress is absolutely confounding.

  • Eep this isn’t nice at all. Pets aren’t toys and even though this was a prank it’s horrible

  • I think playing with a child’s feeling isn’t right especially from the parents – but to label these people as bad parents arent nice either. They probably hadn’t predicted it to turn out the way it did as all kids would take it differently.

  • Way too far. It would kill me inside if someone did that to me. I would have trouble letting the dog go anywhere.

  • This is cruel. Causing genuine emotional distress is not a prank.

  • Absolutely not nice to see a child so upset and the parents keeping going on with their lies. :-(

  • That is NOT funny. If you want to be politically correct it is child abuse in SA. (emotional abuse and pshycological abuse come under child abuse in SA). How could they be so cruel to a young child who loves her puppy.
