Sen. Mike Lee said Tuesday that his staffers created a Snapchat account posing as a young teenager in order to look into potential hazards facing minors who use social media. They were quickly inundated with sexually charged content.
The Utah Republican said his staff didn’t select any content preferences for the account but simply entered a name, a birth year and an email address.
“When they opened the Discover page on Snapchat with its default settings, they were immediately bombarded with content that I can most politely describe as wildly inappropriate for a child,” Mr. Lee told Snapchat, TikTok, and YouTube at a Senate hearing.

Mr. Lee said the fake child’s account received recommendations for an “invite to play an online sexualized video game,” tips on why the child should not go to bars alone, and articles about “porn stars,” among other things.
