Porn Found On Child’s Android Tablet Purchased From Target’s Online Store

Sacramento, CA — Porn was allegedly pre-loaded onto a tablet that a nine-year-old received for Christmas.

The girl’s mother purchased the Zeki Android Tablet from Target.com shortly before Christmas. It reportedly arrived factory sealed, but it somehow contained graphic sex videos. The third-grader saw the videos after unwrapping and powering up the device on Christmas morning.

CBS News 13 in Sacramento interviewed the child’s mom who said her daughter had an awkward expression on her face. She handed the tablet to her mother and asked “mommy, what’s this?” after the explicit videos started playing.

According to CBS, it is unlikely that the hardcore footage was downloaded to the tablet in the home:

“It doesn’t seem plausible that the video was made in the home and added onto the tablet. The file date shows the videos were created in June, not the date it was shipped to their home, which was closer to Christmas.”

When the child’s mother contacted Target, the retailer asked her to return the tablet in exchange for a new one, but that wasn’t a sufficient resolution. According to London’s Daily Mail, she “went to the media to prevent any other children and mothers from having the same experience.” She also apparently plans on retaining an attorney.

“Oh my gosh. She’s seen two videos, pornographic videos. What am I going to tell my 9-year-old?” she asked.

Target subsequently informed the CBS affiliate that it is investigating.

Watch a report on the porn-filled tablet incident from CBS 13:

Some commenters posting under the original story claim that a time and date stamp can be manipulated in an electronic device and that engineers should be able to precisely determine when the disturbing footage was loaded onto the tablet.

That aside, what should Target do for the customer whose family Christmas was ruined by the porn-filled tablet?
