As a person who used to watch quite a lot of his videos between 2012 and early 2013, I feel very upset over what Sam Pepper have included in his videos for the past few months. It was around the beginning of 2013 when I stopped watching his video; around the same time he moved to LA.
He used to be a normal vlogger, doing ridiculous challenges and talk about things most people would find relatable or funny. He did go around and prank people on the street, but it was just small innocent pranks that didn’t really offend anyone. But after he moved to LA his identity kind of changed. His pranks became more and more cringeworthy to watch and now it’s gotten way too far.
His last video did indeed contain acts of sexual harassment to women, but that’s not the worst part. The worst part is his audience, who are mostly young girls around the age of 12-18 who look up to him and will do anything to defend whatever he does. Many of the commenters said that they wouldn’t mind if a random guy came and pinch their butts and that they would pass it off as a joke and that they found the video really hilarious etc. Sure, YOU may think it’s fine when a stranger pinches your butt on the street without your consent but not everyone thinks like that.
I think it’s safe to guarantee that Sam Pepper himself is aware of the negative responses toward his latest video and his apology is yet to come. If it even comes. Because as far as I have seen, he is completely ignoring this and the video is still not deleted (although I hope it will get shut down by YouTube soon) and he still has defenders in his side (hence #snapchatarmy).
This isn’t the only time Sam Pepper, a widely popular youtuber with over 2 million subscribers has done something extremely inappropriate “for the sake of entertainment” Just check through his channel and you’ll see.
What Sam Pepper did is wrong and he should be reported for what he has done. #ReportSamPepper
