Roblox video game allows strangers to direct message kids

The link in this post goes to a story about a father who was playing the with his sons and began to receive messages from strangers that contained sexual advances.

The game advertises itself as a place where kids can “create adventures, play games, role play and learn with their friends”.

The game is becoming quite popular and already has 30 Million unique monthly visitors.

An expert from the story reads, “Mr Morrison decided to use the game – dubbed the new Minecraft – after reading a worrying article about it online, The Sun reported.

He asked his two boys, aged 8 and 11, if they used the game and they said they did, so he decided to check it out.

Shockingly within 15 minutes of playing the 33-year-old father was shown sexual positions, and told he was “sexy” and “cute”.

He said from the outside the game looked fine, but when he went into a room with a pool he was immediately “propositioned”.

“They said ‘hi’ so I said ‘hi’ and they asked if I was a boy or girl and my age so I said I was an eight-year-old boy,” he says.

“They asked me to follow them to their house, then into the bedroom and asked me to lay down on top of them and then they started with the sexual movements.

“They said ‘you look cute’ and ‘you look sexy’.

“It was sickening reading all the comments pop up. My kids were completely oblivious as to what the words and stuff meant.””
