I’m always confused at the randomness with which people decide to show outrage at something. Sam Pepper’s whole YouTube channel is prank videos, i.e videos in which he fucks with people. Like about 90% of his videos are videos in which he violates personal space, freaks people out, distrubs people, makes people uncomfortable. in several of his videos he literally convinced people that their lives were in danger. He’s even already made videos where he touches and pokes strangers. All his videos get millions of views, did we just miss all of those? The video where he pinches butts should get him reported, but not the one where he makes the guys in his backseat think they’re about to get shot because of a botched drug deal?
I’ve never been a fan of prank videos because I think they are fucked up, but they are quite popular, as noted by the fact that Sam has over 2 million subscribers. So I just assumed that we were okay with them. But apparently we arent? Or maybe we’re only opposed to pranks that involve violating women. But the ones where he draws airsoft guns on people or randomly grabs dudes in the street are okay?
