The video of a sperm whale "exploding" has gone viral. It has almost 3 million views on Youtube, and has been hosted on several other websites as well.

In the video above, you can see a fisherman cutting up the carcass of a sperm whale. During the cutting process, he accidentally hit a gas pocket and the result is pretty disgusting.

There is a bit of a debate between people online over the video. Some people say it's "too graphic" and Youtube should take it down. But many people claim this is natural and that there are more graphic videos on Youtube than this.

What do you think? Is the video too much for you to handle? Should Youtube take it down? Or should people just not watch it if they have a problem with it?
