] [



A top Sony executive has been fired after he was allegedly caught in an amateur pedophilia sting operation posted on YouTube.
George Cacioppo — the senior vice president from the team behind PlayStation — allegedly tried to arrange a meeting with a 15-year-old boy, according to a video posted by the YouTube channel People v. Preds.
Cacioppo has been at PlayStation for more than eight years, according to his LinkedIn profile, and he most recently served as senior vice president of engineering.
“We are aware of the situation and the employee in question has been terminated from employment,” Sony said Sunday in a statement to CNET.
Cacioppo didn’t return The Post’s request for comment. He has not been criminally charged.
Adam Sharki, a spokesman for the San Diego Police Department, said “there is an active investigation being led by the San Diego Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC).”
