An Arizona mom who runs the “Fantastic Adventures” YouTube channel has been arrested and charged with allegedly abusing her seven adopted children by beating them, molesting them, locking them in a closet and refusing them food and water. Maricopa authorities said they acted on a tip from Machelle Hackney’s grown daughter, who told them her mother had been abusing her siblings. The abuse was punishment for failing to participate in the YouTube show, or for forgetting their lines, police said.
