YouTuber CJ So Cool has been banned from the video sharing platform after he pulled a cruel prank on his children which left them crying in pain.

CJ So Cool has a following of more that 5.5 million but his latest prank, posted on his YouTube channel, led to his account being suspended.

The father-of-four, whose real name is Cordero James Brady, filmed himself putting laxatives into his children's ice creams and then filmed the results before posting it on his channel, the Daily Mail report.

According to the paper, Cordero's YouTube channel has now been suspended while the video is investigated as a potential criminal case. It was first posted back in 2016 and the investigation is ongoing but it is unclear at what stage it is at.

In the video, Cordero puts Pedia-Lax into his children's ice cream and feeds it to them. Like most children they readily, and happily polish off the treat without knowing it has been contaminated.

After adding the medication to the ice-cream Cordero then shows his children, 90 minutes later, crying and screaming in pain and even shows them on the toilet.

The Daily Mail report that in the video one of Cordero's children says 'my stomach hurts' to which he replies: 'Oh my goodness, this boy's stomach is broken!'

A Henderson Police Department source told 'There was a case that was investigated in 2016 involving laxatives and this individual. It was a joint investigation with Clark County Child Protective Services. It was submitted to the DAs office and it was recommended as a criminal case.'

The paper also reached out for comment from the Clark County Child Protective Services but they were unable to give any information on the case.

Cordero is no stranger to posting controversial videos on his channel. Other videos which has raised an eyebrow or two include one where he pretends one of his children has drowned and another where he sets of fireworks in his kid's bedrooms.
