Somehow somebody put a link to a pornographic chat site on a Barbie.com
page used to promote Barbie Video Girl, a version of the iconic doll
that comes with an embedded video camera.
Sandra McDermott reported the problem to her local TV news station
Tuesday after clicking on the link while trying to upload video on the
Barbie.com Web site with her 10-year-old daughter.
Her daughter was uploading the video for a Barbie Video Girl movie
contest, where kids enter videos they've shot using the toy.
When it looked like the computer might have frozen, McDermott clicked on
a navigation link that should have taken her to
www.barbie.com/videogirl/. Instead, she was taken to the very
not-safe-for-work Camlive.com Web site, which offers "Live Sex Chat -
Amateur Cams and Pornstars."
