'Ass pinch' prank on YouTube causes online outrage

Clare Cullen

The latest YouTube prank to go viral is Sam Pepper's 'Fake Hand Ass Pinch Prank'.

The video shows Pepper asking women for directions and pinching their bottoms when they turn around. Pepper sports a fake hand tucked into his pocket in order to divert blame away from himself.

Many of the women are wearing short skirts and seem very unhappy when they are pinched, with one saying "I don't like that. I don't like that" when Pepper's fake hand is revealed.

Fights have broken out in the comments sections with some commenters accusing those who disliked the video of being "feminist nazis", with one instructing them to "do me a favour go to your nearest beach and drown yourself".

Pepper's prank channel, which has featured videos called 'Instawhore' and 'How to pick up girls on Instagram', often focuses on 'picking up' or 'pranking' strange females on the street, but many viewers think this one has "gone too far".

Previous prank videos to cause outrage included 'Motorboating women for breast cancer awareness' and 'picking up women naked', in which a naked man approached strange women on the street.

What do you think? Have pranks like this gone too far?
