Remember the British prankster who thought groping random women on the street was a hilarious idea for a YouTube video? Well, he is back with another practical joke that, in all honesty, is much worse and provocative than anything he has ever done before.
Former reality TV star Sam Pepper has once again drawn the Internet’s ire, this time for his latest video “Killing Best Friend Prank,” which, as its name suggests, features him pretending to kill someone. The cruel joke features rising Vine stars Sam Golbach and Colby, the latter of whom was in on the joke while Golbachh had no idea what was going on.
The cruel practical joke began with a masked figure abducting the two friends and ended with an unsuspecting and extremely distressed Golbach tied to a chair, thinking his best friend is legitimately dead.
Although Pepper reveals the truth toward the end, it’s quite twisted why he thought anyone would find it funny in the first place.
Check out the video above to watch the entire prank that has distressed thousands on the Internet.
More than 180,000 people have watched the clip, but the reaction has been overwhelmingly negative.
Can someone please buy Sam Pepper a dictionary because he clearly doesn't know the definition of prank— Laura (@5sose31d) November 30, 2015
Why is Sam Pepper still allowed to create and publish content? @YouTube please sort it. It was like watching police files :/ disgusted— Becca (@BeccaRoseTweets) November 30, 2015

tw // Both kidnapping and murder are not jokes. They're serious things and what sam pepper did was not funny at all.— nat | #1 ella stan (@sluttydan) November 30, 2015

How is Sam pepper still allowed to make videos I don't understand why— ? (@fattycaIum) November 30, 2015
Maybe it's high time YouTube gave the 26-year-old “prankster” a lesson in what actually constitutes a prank, because making fun of such traumatic experiences is about as low as someone can go.
