This is Sam Pepper. If you don’t know who he is, Sam is a successful YouTube prankster with over 2 million subscribers. He recently uploaded a video titled “Fake Hand Ass Pink Prank" where he pinched unsuspecting girls’ butts without their permission. None of this was done with the girls’ consent…meaning Sam Pepper sexually harassed and assaulted these women.

This is no longer a “simple, harmless prank” but rather a very serious matter and offence. If you haven’t seen the video yet, you can watch, dislike, and report it HERE. You can also take the pledge to help stop sexual violence at itsonus.org. Please do not let Sam get away with this kind of behavior. He crossed the line and needs to be held responsible for his disgusting actions.

Can we, as a community, stop supporting people who do things like this? And while we’re at it can we stop supporting racist YouTubers and Viners? (Note: It doesn’t matter if there’s a PoC in the video/Vine/movie/etc.) Homophobic? Transphobic? General assholes? There’s a trend of people being really successful at doing terrible things, and they get the community’s support because of their success. I don’t care if they’re “cute” or have the haircut you like—there are thousands of other people to entertain you that don’t do shitty things.

it’s not that deep, if they wanted to do something about it they would of. It’s not like he pinched your bums..

it’s not like I’ve been raped either but it doesn’t make rapist any less horrible??? what kinda nonsense????

Fuck outta here with this “well, if they wanted to do something they would have” argument. That girl saying “I don’t like that. No” wasn’t VOCAL enough for you?? Can we talk about how all of these girls looked underage? Sam is what? 25? You’re gonna GROPE teenage girls on the street and because you’re filming it you think it’s okay. This is evidence. Idiot.

He is BLESSED that I wasn’t there to witness this. I would have fucked up all of his footage by following him and loudly proclaiming how this perverted dude was touching girls on the street. I would have called the cops and gladly pointed to his camera man when they asked for proof.

Everyone at third street promenade, where Sam shoots all of these “prank” videos where he touches girls, handcuffs girls and basically uses street harassment as a gag, KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN AND REPORT HIM IMMEDIATELY.

Can’t stop, won’t stop: Protesters in Ferguson rally again, seeking justice for Mike Brown. More than a month and a half after his death, his killer, Darren Wilson, is still a free man. (Pt 2) 

Because it wouldn’t be a protest in Ferguson without fuckery from the police. A driver plowed his car through protesters, grazing several and running over a young boys foot. Beyond taking several hours to transport the boy to the hospital, they took even longer to arrest the motorist. Who did they not wait long to arrest? Two of the protesters who had been documenting the altercation for the world to see. If you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention. #staywoke #farfromover #nojusticenopeace

Hi Sam!

Thanks for taking the time to read this letter. As fellow YouTubers, we have much respect for others who put so much hard work into building their channel. It’s not easy, and you should be proud! That said, we’ve noticed that in your success, there has been a lack of respect in…

As a Tibetan raised in a Buddhist family, I literally so sick of shit like this. White people love to appropriate eastern cultures and religion, Buddhism has literally been the “chill, laid back”, go to faith/philosophy for a lot of people white people who don’t think their own family faith is chill enough. It’s like a phase y’all go through or something like, “don’t wanna think or really get to know any one religion? just fall back to these super ambiguous buddha quotes that make you feel like you can do whatever!”.  

I am sick of seeing Buddhism made into caricatures and summarized into shitty quotes like this. Stop disrespecting Buddhism, stop generalizing it as something it’s not. It’s intricate, it asks you to think critically, it asks for A LOT OF THINGS, it’s not simply being “chill”. I am used to seeing white people not really give a shit about their ancestral faith, the amount of memes and cartoons I see disrespecting Jesus, Christianity, etc. (as jokes or whatever), it’s honestly appalling but idc that’s your guys’s own deal if you are comfortable with that. But not with mine, Buddhism is not your fallback conduct code when you see other faiths as too restrictive or requiring actual strict rules and taboos (that you cannot abide by). 

Just because Buddhists are not the most violent or headline making group of folks doesn’t mean you can constantly use the faith to produce caricatures in the media and other outlets. It’s not your trendy phase, it’s a very big holy part of many people’s lives. Culturally, I (maybe it’s just me but) find it offensive and I’m always shocked at the lack of social etiquette people have when it comes to the religion and philosophy that my people have followed for centuries. Have some respect and appreciate it for it’s actuality without stomping all over it for the sake of your oversimplification, comfort, and convenience. And don’t get me started on tattoos.

ϟ 95) When Teddy was an infant, his hair turned color to match that of the person he wanted to hold him. This worked well when he wanted his godfather, which was often, but it became incredibly confusing when he sought a Weasley. There were many hasty rounds of pass-the-baby-because-dear-god-stop-the-crying.

What about when his hair turned pink and they could do nothing about it :’(

shit anti-fems and anti-sj bloggers don’t understand

  • believing survivors on an individual level without opposing due process for accused rapists and abusers
  • caring about issues that affect men without allowing discussions about women and non-binary people to get derailed

EVERY TIME SOMEONE BRINGS UP THE LIBRARY OF ALEXANDRIA I GET SO ANGRY.

but why

Because it got burned. All of that knowledge, lost forever.

The library was destroyed over 1000’s of years ago. The library consisted of thousands of scrolls and books about mathematics, engineering, physiology, geography, blueprints, medicine, plays, & important scriptures. Thinkers from all over the Mediterranean used to come to Alexandria to study.Most of the major work of civilization up until that point was lost. If the library still survived till this day, society may have been more advanced and we would sure know more about the ancient world.

***INSANELY PAINFUL SHRIEKING***

The thing is called the ‘Christian dark ages’, but it completely ignores that in the Islamic world one of the biggest periods of learning was taking place.

But otherwise yes, anger making.

I’d like to take a moment to bring to people’s attention what is happening in Scotland right now, more specifically Glasgow. I’m not sure many of you even realise that yesterday we had the chance to vote to be an independent country, and overall, the run up to voting day was fantastic! There was such passion and positivity from both Yes and No camps, but that is now a thing of the past as since the votes have been counted and a NO vote has won 55% to 45% YES. George square has been the hub for many YES gatherings over the past few weeks, and I live in Glasgow and I’ve walked through them, and it’s been a really great atmosphere, but these pictures show what replaces that today. Within 48 hours it has gone from a scene of positivity, to complete anarchy, and the BBC has covered virtually none of it! I ask that you please be aware of the discord going on in Glasgow and Scotland right now, and if you’re in Glasgow please stay at home and be safe, this is not how it should have ended.

riots are breaking out in glasgow right now, scottish flags are being burned, people are making nazi salutes, there is racism and sectarianism and god knows what else, there are supposed stabbings, people are being beaten up purely for voting Yes, but the bbc has decided that a news story more worthy of being reported is the first iphone 6 owner dropping his new phone. the anti-scottish bias from the bbc is reaching new levels of absurdity
