Sir Bruce Forsyth’s nephew was attacked by racist slurs and pornography while playing online games.

Jeremy Martin is the son of the late TV performer, the daughter of Sir Bruce, Debbie Matthews, and was horrified when he was watching his son Carrick play an online game called Roblox when the words came up Racist and obscene terms appear on the screen.

Roblox is an online game that allows players to play games created by other subscribers to the platform and which they can interact with.

The game format is said to be extremely popular with children aged 9 to 12 but has been hacked by adults with malicious intent, who created pornographic scenes with in-game avatars and posted blasphemy. obscene language.

Jeremy was horrified to see some of the content his 10-year-old son was being viewed via the gaming platform.

He said Sir Bruce, who passed away in 2017 aged 89, would be particularly offended by the incidents because his wife, Lady Wilnelia Merced, was from Puerto Rico.

“There are different games on the Roblox site that you can use and they all have their own missions,” says Jeremy.

“What he was watching was something called Draw It, he was playing it at 7 a.m. and we had it in the kitchen so we could keep an eye on it – my wife used to watch it with him.

“The computer gives you a word and you have to draw it and the other people watching have to guess what the word is.

“Someone drew an *rse and then it said ‘gape’ and then it said the n-word twice.”

Jeremy said this is not the first time he has been shocked by the online game, as a similar incident happened last year.

He said: “It was terrible. Something similar happened to this when he was 9 years old and I actually complained to Roblox and got trash emails back.

“It’s another game where you’re the DJ and you can shoot music.

“A song played and this kid started saying the same things, using the n-word. It was coming through the speakers.

“We pay £20 a month for a subscription so you can buy things per game.

“It was basically his pocket money. But come Christmas and birthdays we sometimes spend £200 or £300 on him because that’s all he wants.

“He doesn’t want toys, he wants things that he can use in the game.”

Jeremy said the ineffective response he received when he complained to Roblox Corporation in the past left him feeling lost, unheard and unmotivated to try again.

“I don’t see any point in complaining this time,” he said. I passed the first time and this was bad too and they just fooled me with emails.

“I want people to be aware when they let their little ones play Roblox and not watch what they are doing.

“They’ll see this stuff and their parents won’t know about it and it’s supposed to be an innocent background.”

He continued: “Carrick didn’t understand what it meant. Now we have to police it ourselves, which is frustrating because we can’t give him the freedom he wants.

“I don’t have much faith in it. There will be thousands of children reading and listening to these all the time. “

Meanwhile, Roblox Corporation insists they are taking steps to remove unpalatable content being shared through their game.

A spokesperson said: “We have a culture of safety first at Roblox and work tirelessly to maintain a safe, civil and welcoming platform for all.

“That includes zero tolerance for behavior that doesn’t meet our Community Standards and a robust set of safety features specifically aimed at protecting younger members of the Roblox community.

“We have strict, industry-leading chat filters to block inappropriate words or phrases – even more stringent filters automatically apply to children under 13 – and we ensure certain features, such as voice chat, are only available to verified users above a certain age.

“We also empower and encourage parents to determine what is right for their children by providing a set of Parental Control settings that can be used to limit the young people who can interact (including the option to turn off chat), what experiences kids can access, and how much they can spend.

“And we provide parents with tips and advice specifically on the For Parents pages to help them manage their child’s account.”
