Amazon Alexa Accidentally Offers Porn To Child (Video)

| by Michael Allen

Amazon Alexa, a virtual personal assistant that operates through Amazon's Echo device, offered a child his choice of porn (video below).

In a video uploaded to YouTube on Dec. 29, the boy asks the device, "Play tickle, tickle," or "ticker, ticker."

Alexa replies via Echo: "You want to hear a station for porn, detected. Porn region, hot chick, amateur girl--."

At that point, the adults in the room start yelling, "No! No!" as the boy is dumbfounded by their alarm.

This young teenage singer was shocked when Keith Urban invited her on stage at his concert. A few moments later, he made her wildest dreams come true.

However, Alexa keeps on going: "Hot p*****, anal dildo, ring--"

A man shouts, "Alexa stop!" and the device quits listing the X-rated choices.

The video has gone viral, with more than one million views in two days.

An Amazon spokesperson told Mashable on Dec. 30: "This issue has been fixed, and we are working to build additional restrictions to prevent this from happening in the future. We have also contacted the customer to apologize."

In another mechanical failure, 17 people were stranded on a ride -- 125 feet in the air -- for several hours on Dec. 30 at Knotts Berry Farm, a popular amusement park in Orange County, California.

The park goers became stuck in the Sky Cabin ride, a "fully enclosed revolving observational deck," at around 2 p.m., reports The Independent.

“After the Knott’s Berry Farm maintenance team made several attempts to bring the attraction down, we contacted the Orange County Fire Authority,” park officials said in a statement, according to The Orange County Register. 

Buena Park Police announced at 7:15 p.m. that fire department personnel lowered the passengers down by a rope.

While no one was injured, it's not clear why the park waited so long to contact outside help.

Park officials chirped in their statement: "As always, the safety of our guests and employees is our number one priority."
