Since you know Sam pepper personally, how are you reacting to his most recent video and suspension for youtube?

markjl:

i’ve been asked this question about a dozen times now and i’ve avoided answering because i wanted to see how exactly he’d handle this, and his response has given me all the more reason to write this.

as someone who knows him and has done for three and a half years, i don’t believe this was a social experiment, and he was just attempting to control the damage done. even if it is true and it turns out it actually WAS a social experiment (which i’d need to see undeniable proof of, such as the people in the videos confirming this themselves) i don’t think it’s appropriate for someone who’s previously made multiple videos sexually harassing women to make a video saying “oh it happens to men too!!”, which it undeniably does, but this was not the correct way to showcase this. the original video encouraged an “oh it’s fine to harass/assault women if it’s just a prank” mentality, which, i would have thought that someone who claims to be so involved with stopping sexual harassment, would have been aware of and would have done it differently, but he didn’t. and it’s important to note that he still made a lot of money from the videos, so if what he says rings true, i think it’s appropriate he doesn’t cash in from this and he gives it to a sexual abuse charity.

and of course, he’s conveniently forgetting the numerous “prank” videos he’s made where he’s handcuffed women to himself and told them he’ll free them if they kiss him, where he lassoes women and tells them they’re his girlfriend, and all the other numerous videos he’s made along the same lines. the joke of all of them is that he makes a woman uncomfortable, but joke’s on them if they feel horrified, because it’s just a prank!

from conversations i’ve had in the past with numerous large youtubers (who i’m not going to name) about sam, they all saw something like this coming, have distanced themselves from him, and frankly were just waiting for him to do something like this. literally everyone in the community knew he was a time bomb before this all happened.

i’ve personally distanced myself from him for a while for being a downright shitty friend to me. he dropped me when we had plans to hang out, so he could hang out with the people he was on tour with (despite us not seeing each other for a year and a half), he hardly ever contacted me in the years we were friends unless he got something out of it, and oh yeah, he proposed that he make a prank video based around my Coming Out video for his channel where he reveals we’re dating “because it’ll be funny” which would completely reduce my video to a joke, and got annoyed at me when i didn’t tell him in advance when i was posting the video because he missed the opportunity. good friend, eh. christ, the only reason he ever talked to me in the first place was because he wanted me to teach him how to play minecraft asap because he wanted to make a let’s play of it, and the only reason i was in it was because a more famous youtuber bailed on him.

and yeah, although he is the reason people actually started watching me in the first place because he gave me exposure (to which i am indebted to him), this is the straw that broke the camels back and i’m not going to keep quiet about his actions any longer.

last time we hung out was after one of his shows on the WDGAF tour and he was actively seeking out hot fans because he wanted to sleep with them, he’s harassed multiple female youtubers, fans, and i’ve heard from more than one person that he was banned from summer in the city because he was caught making out with his (likely, underage) fans at the event.

his behaviour is fucking unacceptable and i’m glad this entire thing has blown up in his face, and i’m also glad youtubers and viewers are standing by what’s morally right here.

sam, when you inevitably read this, i’m sorry but this has gone on long enough and i’m tired of holding my tongue about this to protect you. your actions have made me feel sick to my stomach and i no longer want to call you a friend.

that’s all i have to say on this. i’m done.

imo if parents dont respect their kids then they dont deserve respect from their kids. im tired of people thinking that its normal for parents to treat their children like property or like they dont have feelings. im tired of people thinking that overprotective parents arent harmful. treat your children like people because thats what they ARE

White, stomping with ~~~misandry, your litas and Tina Fey gifs while simultaneously ignoring women of color and their feelings but having plenty of time to talk about winged eyeliner and discussing which white basic actor is your new “bae”, feminists keep messaging me saying I’m sexist for the piggy part of my url and I laughed and scrolled but then scrolled back cause I remembered I had a lil somethin somethin that might be relevant.

The title of this blog refers to these tweets (not fatshaming a thin woman) that were the cause of me unfollowing her (how did you think I found all these in the first place, duh). If this isn’t acting like a misogynistic pig I don’t know what is. Let’s be real, azaleans (is that a type of enemy alien race?) do anything to excuse her behavior cause she’s a white woman doing black music with a body and mannerisms typically associated with black women. She’s pear shaped with a “fat” ass. Black girls with literally the same measurements are called ghetto and shamed for their curves. She raps like a non archival photo copied T.I., southern twang and all, but since she’s actually Australian and white her stans are okay with it cause once the mic drops she has an ~exotic accent~ and ~cute voice.~ Her use of misogynistic slurs to put down other women and build up herself are in your twitter bio cause it’s so swaggy hunty gurl spill that fancy tea!!! But when Beyonce, Lil Kim, Nicki Minaj, Trina, or any black female artist (who im not saying are without flaws) talks about “slaying hos” and how bitches should bow down, it’s suddenly a problem that requires full length articles in actual publications and countless tumblr posts. Like Miley Cyrus, she’s used black women as props and until recently had exclusively black dancers who twerked the fuck out on a hand stand, doin that thang while she stood there and occasionally gave a D- booty shake that the crowd still went off for more than the actual pros popping their pussies off the damn ceiling and filling me with the holy spirit. Do us all a favor and accept you’re excusing her being a careless racist because of her appearance. You can still wanna lick her pussy, bop to her white girl anthems or have your body tied to a carriage and dragged by Brad Pitt like Eric Bana in Troy just to reach that ass. But be real and quit denying that what she’s said is okay by anything but Donald Sterling’s standards. As Paul Mooney once said, “Everybody wants to be a nigga, but nobody wants to be a nigga." She’s a low quality xerox of black female rappers and white America couldn’t wait so they didn’t have to bop to actual hip hop anymore from the people who created it.

And for the 956 messages calling me a hater, a hater is someone who reads with no resume and critiques with no credentials. I have more degrees than a thermometer. I don’t know what bullet-less gun y’all were holding when you thought you had a shot at rationalizing these “jokes” when they’re not hot, not even lukewarm. Now run and tell that.

and have a lovely evening! xxx
