Father-of-five Mike Martin is known for playing outrageous pranks on his children and filming them for his thousands of YouTube fans.
However, Mike and his wife Heather’s most recent prank on their youngest son Cody has been slammed by viewers as “mentally torturing” the children. Some have even labelled their actions “child abuse”.
In the since deleted clip, posted on Martin’s DaddyOFive YouTube channel, Heather explains she’s going to use disappearing ink to trick her son into believing he has ruined the carpet — something he has done in the past.
"Get your f**king ass up here! What the f**k?!”" she yells at her son as he walks into his room to see ink spilled on the floor.
Mike joins in the yelling, while sibling Alex is also drawn into the frenzied scene. The boys begin to cry as they protest their innocence while their parents continue to yell at them.
It is six minutes before Heather and Mike tell their children they've been pranked. The parents are laughing and taunting their sons, who look shell-shocked.
