A Snapchat video which appears to show a father trying to potty train his son by pouring hot sauce down his pants, has triggered a police investigation.

The video was posted on Facebook and viewed more than 13,000 times. It shows a man holding a young child while pouring hot sauce down his pants and then on his face while the child cries.

The video has the caption: “potty training 101.”


Shana Honeycutt, of Edmond, Okla., posted a sped-up version of the video on Facebook after seeing it in a private group and being completely horrified.

“It needed to be public,” she told News9. “It didn’t need to be left in a private Facebook group where no one did or said anything about it.”

She added: “It’s abuse. You don’t potty train by pouring hot sauce down a baby’s pants and wiping it all over the face.”

It’s not evident how old the child is.

Police in Choctaw, where the original video was taken, said that they’re investigating the case along with the Oklahoma Department of Human Services.

While the child appears distraught in the video, the child’s Mom – who posted the original video to the private Facebook group – told reporters that the slower version shows none of the sauce actually made contact with her son.

You can see that nothing went down his pants, and nothing was in his mouth,” the mother, who wanted to remain anonymous, said.

She said that her son was laughing after the video was taken.

“The video was played out to something it wasn’t. My son, I would never put him in harm’s way,” the mother said.

Choctaw police, along with DHS members have visited the child’s home on Wednesday.

The investigation is ongoing, but the child appears to be in a safe home.
