Countless of people on social media have sparked outrage due to a ?horrible? and ?vile? prank of a YouTuber. Over a 100,000 users have posted complaints about the YouTuber and former Big Brother contestant Sam Pepper over a prank in which Viner Sam Golbach, is led to believe that he?s watching the murder of his best friend, Colby Brock.
Watch the video below:
In the video, Colby pretends that his car stalled and tries to fix it when a kidnapper shows up and points a gun at Sam. Another kidnapper then bags the head of Colby and takes them to an ?unknown? location. Sam then sees Colby kneeling on the floor with the kidnappers beside him pointing a gun at Colby?s head then shoots him in the head. Colby falls to the floor while Sam, tied to his chair, is crying and screaming over the ?death? of his best friend. The video then ends with Colby getting back up and unties him to comfort what looks like a traumatized Sam.
The YouTube video immediately caused a stir in social media and a petition was made to banish Pepper from the social media site. Over 100,000 people signed the petition and are hoping that YouTube would pay attention. According to reports, YouTube has announced that the video wasn?t violating the site?s community guidelines.
Here are some of the comments from the people who watched the video:

After a few days, Sam Golbach posted a statement on Twitter regarding the prank, saying that he wasn?t upset and that the experience made his friendship with Colby stronger.
Check out the full statement below:
?Going into social media I knew at one point there would be a prank or something like this that would happen. After thinking through it all and spending the next few days with both Colby and Sam I?m honestly not mad.
If anything this made Colby and I?s friendship much stronger because it showed me how much we actually care for one another. As for Sam he has recently become one of my good friends and it all started from this crazy experience.
