Heart Symbol on Children’s Toy Has Sick Message for Pedophiles
A toy company is halting production of a children's toy after it was found out that a symbol on it has a sickening double meaning.
A mother had purchased the toy for her 2-year-old at a recent Monster Jam in Syracuse over the weekend. Law enforcement experts are saying that the toy's heart design on the monster truck held a sick message created for pedophiles so they can communicate with each other.
Feld Entertainment says that they have no idea about the symbol and were "shocked" when they found out what it meant. They have since pulled the toy from their vendors.
“We’re shocked. We had no idea. We reacted immediately. We wanted to do the right thing as quickly as possible. Clearly we’re in the business with providing high quality family entertainment. This was really obscure. Until yesterday, I had no idea there was an underlying meaning of these symbols and the deplorable behavior. We just don’t know if a crime was committed here. We have not been contacted by LEOs. We just want to make sure it doesn’t happen again,” said Stephen Payne, with Feld Inc.
