Dish Network Accidentally Broadcasts Hardcore Porn On The Disney Channel

Lilo and Stich

For nearly three decades, the Disney Channel has been one of the go-to distractions for exhausted parents to turn to when they need a precious few hours of quiet time. Parents might expect the channel to teach their children many lessons, such as why it's okay to kill somebody in retaliation for them killing somebody you cared about (The Lion King), why bestiality is okay if you're in love (Beauty and the Beast), or why humans are rotten bastards that treat nature like crap (Bambi, Pocahontas, Brother Bear, The Little Mermaid, etc.).

One thing nobody would ever expect to have to worry about when leaving their kids under Walt's watchful electronic eye is little Jimmy or Janey being exposed to two people doing the horizontal mambo. Yet, that's exactly what happened earlier this week, when a North Carolina woman left her kids alone to watch the 2002 Disney movie Lilo and Stitch.

Georgie Brown had recorded the film on her Dish Network DVR, and saw no harm in exiting the room after pressing play on her remote. Unfortunately, the image pixelated and disappeared about a minute into the wacky animated antics of fugitive alien Stitch, and was replaced by about six minutes worth of two live-action people making the ol' beast with two backs.

Upon hearing sounds that were decidedly not family friendly coming from the room, Brown rushed in to find action of the hardcore variety playing out in front of her 2-year-old son, 3-year-old daughter, and 5-year-old son. While her youngest son didn't react, Brown's daughter started crying, and her oldest son ran from the room covering his ears and screaming.

A Dish Network representative has since publicly apologized for the incident, although Brown says no one with the satellite service has apologized to her personally since sending a technician out to investigate the authenticity of her claims.

I'll be honest here, my first reaction upon reading this story was to laugh. A lot. While I certainly wouldn't recommend exposing children to pornography, a few accidental minutes of it isn't going to make them grow up to be psychopaths or anything. None of them were really old enough to fully comprehend what they saw, and it will no doubt fade from their memories with time. With all that in mind, excuse me while I laugh some more.

Is Brown right to be this upset about the incident, or is she blowing things out of proportion?

Anonypuss:  Reduced text size?  I don't see any reduced text size anywhere in either the story or the comments.  And if you're gonna ask someone a question, you really should include their name, so they know you're talking to them.

LOL!  I'm with you, Michael...the story's just so absurd, it's hilarous!  Maybe parents will learn that this is the kind of thing that's likely to happen when they allow the "boob tube" (see, you're not the only one that can do euphemisms!) to babysit their kids instead of doing it themselves.  But then, probably not, as this is far from the first time this kind of thing has been reported.

<ot>But how did you reduce your text size? Is there a code that can be implemented in the comment field to that effect?

Wait, the adult content showed up on her DVR recording, but nobody noticed it during the live broadcast that she recorded for later viewing? Interesting...

The situation is unfortunate, but the reaction is hilarious! Kids screaming, crying and running out of the room? Because of what? 5 year olds are scared of bad guys on cartoons. If I had to guess the reaction of a 5 year old who'd never seen porn before, it wouldn't be one of fear or panic - it'd be straight up confusion at what the hell is going on, and since when does that equal crying and screaming? Perhaps the mother or someone else is mad about this incident (fair call, I suppose) and invented a bit more of a dramatic retelling than what actually happened.

After re-reading what I wrote in the article, I do think I should clarify what I meant when I said I was laughing a lot. To be clear, what I found funny wasn't at all that those kids saw what they did, it was more the sheer absurdity of the whole situation. A mother turning on Lilo and Stitch for the kids and coming back to find hardcore porn playing is just so incredibly unlikely and random that the scenario would be at home on an episode of a sitcom.

Shame on me? Really? Next time I'll be sure to consult with you before I write anything you might disagree with. And what do you mean that Disney movies are already like porn? In what universe is that even remotely true?
