Girls face so many challenges and people are constantly telling them they can’t do things, they can’t be funny, they can’t run the companies. My advice is just not to focus on anyone telling you that you can’t do anything or the politics of your situation. Just think about your art, or that thing you want to do.
This is Sam Pepper. If you don’t know who he is, Sam is a successful YouTube prankster with over 2 million subscribers. He recently uploaded a video titled “Fake Hand Ass Pink Prank" where he pinched unsuspecting girls’ butts without their permission. None of this was done with the girls’ consent…meaning Sam Pepper sexually harassed and assaulted these women.
This is no longer a “simple, harmless prank” but rather a very serious matter and offence. If you haven’t seen the video yet, you can watch, dislike, and report it HERE. You can also take the pledge to help stop sexual violence at itsonus.org. Please do not let Sam get away with this kind of behavior. He crossed the line and needs to be held responsible for his disgusting actions.
Can we, as a community, stop supporting people who do things like this? And while we’re at it can we stop supporting racist YouTubers and Viners? (Note: It doesn’t matter if there’s a PoC in the video/Vine/movie/etc.) Homophobic? Transphobic? General assholes? There’s a trend of people being really successful at doing terrible things, and they get the community’s support because of their success. I don’t care if they’re “cute” or have the haircut you like—there are thousands of other people to entertain you that don’t do shitty things.
it’s not that deep, if they wanted to do something about it they would of. It’s not like he pinched your bums..
it’s not like I’ve been raped either but it doesn’t make rapist any less horrible??? what kinda nonsense????
Fuck outta here with this “well, if they wanted to do something they would have” argument. That girl saying “I don’t like that. No” wasn’t VOCAL enough for you?? Can we talk about how all of these girls looked underage? Sam is what? 25? You’re gonna GROPE teenage girls on the street and because you’re filming it you think it’s okay. This is evidence. Idiot.
He is BLESSED that I wasn’t there to witness this. I would have fucked up all of his footage by following him and loudly proclaiming how this perverted dude was touching girls on the street. I would have called the cops and gladly pointed to his camera man when they asked for proof.
Everyone at third street promenade, where Sam shoots all of these “prank” videos where he touches girls, handcuffs girls and basically uses street harassment as a gag, KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN AND REPORT HIM IMMEDIATELY.
Thanks for taking the time to read this letter. As fellow YouTubers, we have much respect for others who put so much hard work into building their channel. It’s not easy, and you should be proud! That said, we’ve noticed that in your success, there has been a lack of respect in…
