ACE family dad Austin McBroom is being accused of sexualising a child after he filmed himself buying an x-rated lollipop for a toddler.

The ACE Family are one of the most popular vlogging families on YouTube and are known for posting their family-friendly content of them raising their two young children. Now the father, Austin McBroom, has landed himself in hot water with fans and non-fans alike after filming himself buying a penis shaped lollipop for a toddler.

As reported by Buzzfeed, the video which appears to be filmed by McBroom, shows a little girl in what looks like a novelty store asking him to buy the lolly. It doesn't appear to be one of his own kids but a friend or family members. “She said she was going to steal it if I didn’t buy it, so better me buy it,” McBroom jokes in the video.

The footage has been widely shared online since it was recorded earlier this week (Jan 7) and people have been expressing their dismay at letting a child have a penis-shaped lollipop.

The ACE family are yet to respond to the controversy.
