You may remember hearing the name “Sam Pepper” last year attached to a story about women accusing him of rape after his butt pinching prank/”social experiment” went viral for all the wrong reasons. The video, which was removed by YouTube, showed Pepper groping women with a fake hand in the name of a prank, which he later called a social experiment. Following the video, several teenaged women came forward to share their stories of sexual abuse at the hands of Pepper.
A little over a year has passed since these allegations surfaced, and Pepper is perhaps hoping we’ve all forgotten that he’s a terrible person. Unfortunately for him, that’s not the case.
His latest video, a prank involving a young man being “murdered” in front of his best friend, is incredibly hard to watch. The victim can be heard saying “I don’t understand, we’re just kids from Kansas…. You’ve got the wrong guys! He’s everything I have” just before he sees his best friend get shot right in front of him. The pranksters let the victim of the prank scream and cry for more than half a minute before revealing that it was all a joke.
