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

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

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.

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

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