    YouTube pulled 1,50,000 videos of children after lewd comments about them were posted by viewers, as the Google-owned platform sought to reassure advertisers their messages would be kept out of compromising situations. The online video sharing behemoth confirmed on Thursday that it deleted several hundred accounts along with the thousands of videos that were problematic. The move came after a newspaper reported that ads for big-name brands were displayed alongside videos of children or teens which, while innocent on their own, drew viewer comments that seemed pedophile in nature.
