Adorable 5 Year Old Comedian: Funny or Inappropriate?

By Meghan Gesswein |

There’s another viral kid video making the internet rounds. This time, it’s a 5 year old boy, “Zay Zay,” who wants to be a comedian. He is undeniably adorable and he certainly made me smile.


I had to watch the video a few times, in an effort to get over some of the subject matter that made me take pause the first time. And, honestly, I’m left feeling a bit uneasy about the entire thing.

Yes, the kid is cute and fun to watch, and the comments it’s receiving on YouTube are, for the most part, positive. But the material seems a little inappropriate to me. I just don’t find it funny for a young child, of any race, to joke about being beaten. I obviously don’t think this kid is being beaten by his parents, but I’m put off by the fact that the video itself seems to be making light of a very serious subject. Am I being too sensitive?

Take a look at the video below and then, please, let me know how you feel about it.
