YouTuber Sam Pepper recently uploaded a ‘prank’ video and it’s got everyone very angry indeed.
The 25 year old decided it would be a good idea to film himself sexually harassing random girls and upload it to YouTube.
The video shows him walking up to strangers to ask for directions and then reaching out to grab their bums when they weren’t looking.
The video was clearly labelled as a “prank” video but nobody was laughing. Thousands of people took to Twitter to express their disgust at Sam. Even fellow YouTubers Tyler Oakley, Troye Sivan and Louise (SprinkleofGlitter) publicly shunned Sam.
Sam has not yet responded to any of the messages or commented on the matter, let alone apologised.
The video has since been removed from YouTube and Sam Pepper has been banned from various YouTube conventions including Vidcon and Summer in the City.
But it’s not all doom and gloom in the land of video blogging. Here’s a video of another YouTuber, Caspar Lee telling strangers they’re beautiful instead of grabbing their bums. We know who we’d rather meet in the street.
