The trashy parents Mike Martin and Heather Martin from Youtube known as “DaddyOFive” have lost custody of two of their children.
The videos posted to “DaddyOFive” YouTube channel have caused a firestorm of criticism while racking up millions of views and probably thousands of dollars from Google.
The disgusting videos basically show the children being abused and crying hysterically as Mike and Heather Martin scream at them.
The two youngest children are Heather Martin’s stepchildren. Rose Hall, the biological mother of the children, released her own video with her lawyer announcing that the children were in her care.
“Emma and Cody are with me. I have emergency custody,” Hall said.
Hall’s attorney said the police and court system were instrumental in reuniting the mother with her children.
During an interview with ABC News on Friday the Martins said some of the videos were staged.
“Some stuff is real. Some stuff was acted out, scripted,” Heather Martin said.
It remained unclear if the three other children would be taken away from the Martins.
Mike and Heather Martin Apology:
“What started out as family fun and entertainment took on a life of its own. Before we knew it, we were caught-up in our families popularity which led to some poor decisions. Upon reflection, we realize there were mistakes made that caused our family some pain; we offer our most humble and sincere apology to those we negatively impacted and offended, particularly our wonderful children. Our children are safe. Off camera and out of character, they are normal, happy kids who play sports and love being with their family and friends. Thank you for your understanding as we work through this difficult time.”
