With more than 2.4 million followers, prankster Sam Pepper is a bona fide YouTube sensation. A lot of people, however, don’t think his latest video is funny.

so i watched the sam pepper video……um…….is this real life tho?

Very disheartened that Sam Pepper's video of him committing sexual harassment is still on @YouTube after such a vocal campaign to report it.

@DwarfofChaos sam pepper's newest prank video is blatant sexual harassment and just generally despicable behavior

— Jimmy Wong (@jfwong) September 21, 2014

The Sam Pepper video is sexual harassment. I'm actually down right upset at the comments saying it's okay? ITS REALLY FUCKING NOT.

Signal boosting the absolutely despicable behavior of YouTuber Sam Pepper, who thinks harassing women is funny. http://t.co/pRzmlZXnpu

Literally had to stop watching the Sam Pepper video because I started to vom. It's not a prank. It's sexual harrassment.

please don't watch @sampepper's new video, it's not a prank, it's just sexual harassment passed off as entertainment

— Jack Howard (@JackHoward) September 20, 2014

For people asking, it's safe to assume that people who sexually assault women in "prank" videos will not be welcome at future VidCons.

@hankgreen Appreciate seeing this. You won't be seeing creators who partake in that behavior appear in YouTubers React either.

If you guys could report @sampepper's new video (https://t.co/oWyswervV3) that would be great. Its sexual harassment and its disgusting.

Some say Pepper’s actions warrant a law enforcement response:

@sampepper you're literal scum. I hope the authorities arrest you because you literally filmed yourself sexually assaulting women

— mollee || 23 (@lovatosclassic) September 22, 2014

@sampepper How have u not been arrested you scum. Recording yourself sexually assaulting women & posting it online. #ReportSamPepper #arrest

Arrest @sampepper for battery

— Ian Actual (@iboudreau) September 21, 2014

A series of sexual assaults captured on video. When will police arrest Sam Pepper?

— Patrick Strudwick (@PatrickStrud) September 21, 2014

SOMEONE PLEASE ARREST SAM PEPPER

— adrienne (@queerflutist) September 22, 2014

@harto @sampepper I really hope this letter does something, I also hope his youtube following dwindles. But there should be police action.
