SEVERAL SEXUAL ACTS FOUND IN ROBLOX
Who would have thought that Roblox could someday traumatize a child? This game launched in 2005, created by David Baszcucki, federated an incredible community of players by exceeding the 60 million users per month, whose goal is to create varied worlds using many tools provided by the publisher . That she was the surprise of Amber Peterson seeing naked avatars alongside the character of his daughter. She immediately took the iPad to prevent him from seeing more, including images where we see clearly male genitals. Peterson made several screenshots of the game for proof before posting on Facebook,a message where she expresses her concern. In her post, the young woman goes into detail about what she saw: the avatar of her daughter being sexually assaulted by two male characters.
Initially, I could not believe what I was seeing. The avatar of my sweet innocent girl was violently violated on a playground by two men. Then an observant woman approached them and eventually jumped on her body at the end of the act. The three characters then fled, leaving my daughter's avatar lying on the floor in the middle of the playground. Fortunately, I was able to take screenshots of what I witnessed so that people realize how traumatic this experience was.
The developers of the Minecraft- style game recalled that they were updating the security options, but that it was sometimes difficult to monitor everything because of the number of universes created by its users. They said in a statement that they had removed the game in which the kid had been attacked.
