"We've made some terrible parenting decisions."
Um, YOU THINK?
The parents behind the disturbing DaddyOFive YouTube account are apologizing after facing a ton of (warranted) child abuse accusations online!
In case you're unfamiliar, the Maryland couple gained followers after making videos featuring what they call "pranks" on their five children — which usually have one son in particular on the receiving end of verbal and physical abuse from his siblings and parents. Mind you, this was all captured and shared in now-deleted videos!

The latest vid to cause outrage was entitled "Invisible Ink Prank (Epic Freakout)" and showed the parents each screaming profanities at their son for making a mess — something they did in order to set him up. The boy has an extremely hard-to-watch breakdown, during which he becomes red in the face and cries uncontrollably trying to defend himself.
Other videos show the son being wrestled, kicked in the groin, shoved into a bookcase resulting in a bleeding nose, abandoned in a mall, and even scared by a fake burglar in an incident where the father pulled out a real gun.
In much of the content, the child is constantly begging for the filmed pranks to stop and asking to be left alone.
