ATTENTION INTERNET: Sam Pepper has reuploaded both original prank videos to his Facebook page and claiming, in a third installment posted to his YouTube channel, that these videos were completely and 100% staged. And I’m calling bullshit.
It doesn’t matter if you scripted every last line of this video and each participant was a paid actor. You uploaded a video for your audience of millions to see where you simulated sexual assault for a laugh and a view in the hopes of causing controversy and drawing more attention to yourself.
Every 2 minutes in America a person is sexually assaulted. Almost 60% of all sexual assaults will go unreported to the police. Where’s the humor in that? What gives you the right to take the pain these people have been through and make a profit off of it. If anything, you should apologize for your initial video (regardless of whether or not it was staged) and donate everything you made from this “social experiment” to organizations like RAINN.
Report these videos on Facebook. Get them taken off the internet permanently. If they violated YouTube’s code of conduct, they should violate Facebook’s as well.
