According to Gizmodo
, it took Google
, who owns YouTube
, more than 20 minutes to react to the hacking news.
reports that just before the channel was completely taken down by YouTube due to the hacking, a message was placed on the channel's page accusing two YouTube account holders of causing the hack. One of the accused, known as "MrEdxwx," denies responsibility.
Neither Google nor PBS
, who produces Sesame Street
, have released an official statement in response to the incident.
As of late Sunday, Sesame Street's YouTube channel page is still not activated, although many of the show's videos have been restored on the site.
