Netflix has pulled this children's show after a very NSFW discovery
Maya the Bee, a show on Netflix created by Studio 100 Animation and based on a German children's book, came under fire this week after concerned mothers noticed a crude drawing of a penis in one of the scenes. Nope, this isn't a debunk-able Disney moment—there are screenshots to prove it. It's not every day you're forced to shield your child's eyes while watching children's television show.
According to Variety, the initial keen eyed mom was Chey Robinson. After spotting the drawing, she shared it with her Facebook audience, explaining that she "did NOT edit any images whatsoever" from the episode in question—episode 35 of season one.
"I know I’m not going crazy and I know that something like this shouldn’t be in a kids’ show whatsoever," she wrote according to reports. "I’m extremely disgusted by it, there should be no reason my kids have to see something like this. I don’t know if they’re gonna do something about this or what, but there’s no reasons why this should be in this show.”
If you check out Netflix now, the questionable episode has been removed from the streaming platform; Mashable has reached out to Studio 100 Animations, and will update with comments accordingly.
But if you don't believe it yourself, Robinson's video footage has been captured on Youtube.
