So it would seem:

youtube removed

As Twitchy reported earlier this morning, the video showed Pepper pinching women’s butts (apparently) without their permission. Many people, including a number of YouTube stars, criticized the video.

Initial reaction to YouTube’s removal of the video has been uniformly positive:

Some Twitter users are claiming that YouTube suspended Pepper’s entire account.

At the time of this writing, that is untrue. The channel is still up. Only the sexual assault “prank” video has been removed.

Update:

Pepper has taken to Twitter to explain. See this post for more.
