Mum Explodes At Kid Who Bought 50,000 'Fortnite' V-Bucks With Her Card

I don't have kids, but I can imagine I'd be pretty damn annoyed if I did and they used my credit card without my permission. I'd be even more annoyed if I discovered that these hypothetical children has used my credit card without my permission to buy a crap ton of video game currency.

That's why I can't really blame TikTok user 'Ksmashipper' for going in on her kid after she discovered he'd purchased nearly 50,000 V-bucks on Fortnite via the family bank account. For context, 50,000 V-bucks equates to around $350 on the PlayStation store. Not many people have that kind of money to blow on a fictional currency that can only be spent in a video game.

As spotted by Fraghero, 'Ksmashipper' losers her cool as she sends the crying child to their room. "Why the f**k you got 49 f*****g thousand V-Bucks?" she can be heard shouting. "I'm gonna f**k you up, get the f**k out. Get out." Fear the wrath of an angry mum.

"You spent $80 mad times, because how you got 49,000 V-Bucks?", the parent continues in a second video, for the rage cannot be contained to a single upload. This is far from the largest amount we've ever seen a kid spend in an online game using funds that aren't theirs, but it's quite something getting to see the real-time reaction.

While most video games and consoles do have parental controls to prevent children from spending money that isn't theirs, it could easily be argued that the process to enable these child-locks isn't brilliantly explained. Not everybody is hardware savvy, after all, and these parental control features can fly completely under the radar for some. I've no doubt Ksmashipper is aware of these features now, but it was one expensive lesson.
