After an interesting Geometry Dash rate wave by RobTop, Mindcap's levels LIMBO and Collab Level have been rated. But why is it controversial?
In Geometry Dash, developer RobTop Games included a very powerful level editor capable of creating very realistic art.

However, Collab Level by Mindcap and more, rather than creating interesting and harmless art, chose to create a horror level.
Collab Level is not the first horror level in Geometry Dash. Peaceful by Zylenox and more is largely believed to have started the trend. These levels create realistic art depicting disturbing subject matter.
The thing unique to Collab Level is that it is the first Geometry Dash horror level to get rated by RobTop.
While it now contains an explicit content warning at the start, the fact that RobTop chose to rate a horror level that many players would find disturbing has left the community in disbelief.

It is worth noting that not all rated levels are able to be played with parental controls on. That option only allows users to play featured levels, which are levels approved by RobTop. However, since Collab Level is featured, this poses a risk for those with parental controls enabled.
Overall, what has yet to happen to Collab Level is uncertain. There is a chance RobTop will unrate it if he is called out, but as of now, nobody has expressed serious distaste for the level being rated.
