Mike and his wife usually made pranks on their children (Alex, Ryan, Jake, Cody and Emma) which a lot of people did not like as they noticed the abusive nature of them (including them fighting, screaming and cursing at the kids) in their prank videos, especially when people noticed they specifically targeted one of their children simply for the money and views, which led to them starting to get hated.
A lot of people started to talk about this issue, and it got international attention in a lot of the media for a considerable amount of time. The issue was so bad that they went to court and lost custody to Cody and Emma. All the videos on the DaddyOFive account are now removed except for an apology video.
On July 7, 2017, DaddyOFive uploaded a video called "DaddyOFive channel UPDATE!!" saying thank you for all the "Love and Support" from his "fans" and also saying that the channel wasn't dead and will be returning soon.
On September 14, 2017, MommyOFive uploaded a video titled "BIG NEWS ABOUT DaddyOFive!!" and they announced that they will no longer upload videos on the DaddyOFive channel.
They have now continued on to a new channel called FamilyOFive, where Mike makes daily family vlogs, with his three children (Alex, Ryan, Jake)(Cody and Emma has been taken out of Mike's custody) and his wife.
On July 18, 2018, DaddyOFive, along with FamilyOFive, were terminated, apparently due to repeated display of child abuse, which they have been known for 1 year before it's termination.
