The video has now been removed from YouTube.

A kids cartoon that was uploaded on YouTube is being called out for being racist. The problematic clip shows a "beautiful" white character becoming cursed and turning into an "ugly" black woman.

The cartoon, called Dina and the Prince, was uploaded by YouTube channel My Pingu TV, which features animated videos for young kids.

The story follows an angel named Dina who falls for a prince. However, when she is an angel, Dina can't speak to the prince before lighting a torch and if she does she'll lose her beauty.

However, Dina falls in love with him anyway and decides to give up her beauty just to have a conversation with him. She then transforms from a white woman into a black woman with curly hair. "I could not bear your pain any longer and now I am ugly," she tells him.

The prince falls for Dina despite her appearance and the story ends with her somehow becoming white and "beautiful" again.

The video quickly went viral and although YouTube have now removed it, people are still dragging the offensive clip for implying that white skin is more beautiful – especially because it's aimed at young children.
