The provocative Potty-Mouthed Princess viral video showing young girls swearing has been reinstated by YouTube after being taken down amid a storm of controversy.
The video, by American company FCKH8.com, shows five girls, aged between six and 13, dressed up as princesses and swearing like sailors.
According to Mashable, the original video was pulled from YouTube on Wednesday around 2:30pm, and was also unavailable on Vimeo for some time due to an error.
“This video has been removed because its content violated YouTube’s Terms of Service,” the error message read when users tried to access it.
However, a spokesperson for YouTube told The Independent that it was by accident.
“Our policy team had a look at the video and it looks like there was an error and it shouldn’t have been removed. As a result they have now reinstated it,” she said. “With the massive volume of videos on our site, sometimes we make mistakes.”
