Pornography shows up on child’s Christmas tablet www.privateofficer.com
LAKEWOOD, CO Jan 1 2013- The gift that a 5-year-old boy received from Santa was made more for a 25-year-old man.
The boy found pornographic pictures on the refurbished game device he got for Christmas.
“He handed the [Nintendo] 3DS to Bryton,” said father Mark Giles. “Bryton said ‘Dad, I don’t think he should be looking at these pictures’.”
The young boy’s brother gave the game to his father. Giles discovered the video game had nine pornographic pictures on it.
Giles immediately called the retailer GameStop, where he made the purchase.
A father’s hard work to make Christmas special was ruined by the gross oversight.
“I lost it. I called just everybody,” said Giles.
So GameStop tried to make it right, the explanation being the images were from the previous owner, and weren’t caught before the refurbished device was sold.
“He’s 5-years-old,” said Giles. “Maybe when he’s 18 or 20 maybe he won’t know anything about it, but he’s not going to forget about it tomorrow.”
GameStop says it’s currently looking into the situation.
The GameStop location where the console was purchased has given the family an upgraded version of the Nintendo 3DS with several games.
