A Wild Joshawott appeared!

My NINE YEAR OLD brother decided to make a YouTube account and post some videos of him and his friends playing games, for no reason other than a bit of fun. Sadly, today I was called into the front room by my Mum, who was next to my distraught brother as they were looking at these comments (and it’s worth mentioning that this all happened on my Mum’s 50th birthday - what a lovely present for an amazing mother!).
Especially take note of his comment at the top asking for people to stop. I’ve censored his name in case of any repercussions but for the people doing it? If they can give it, they can take it. 
Me and Mum made the decision to take down all of his videos and to give him a talk about safety on the internet. We shouldn’t have had to do that when it was just a little boy sharing the fun he was having with his friends for his other friends to watch.
Remember this people: regardless of whether you are standing right in front of someone or hundreds of miles away bashing your keyboard, you must speak to people in a manner in which you wish to be spoken to yourself. Even if my 9 year old brother was a grown man, there is still no excuse for speaking to him like that.
Everyone, please share this in the hope that it will make people rethink how to act on the internet and hopefully mean at least one less child will have to endure this.
