Can you approve my post on your Facebook page? Its quite crazy! :D
do you know if jason raped someone? bc idk what he has done.
I was waiting for you to comment on this .
I’m disgusted , upset , confused , bereaved .. Feeling all sorts of
emotions as I’m sure all youtubers who were subscribed to these people are
. Bless the victims , I just hope everyone feels they can let their voice
be heard and stop these morons doing any more harm xx
Not subscribed to a single one of them. I’m a good judge of character
That tumblr post in the description…. Unfortunately, it included some of
my favorite youtubers. (Some of whom I hadn’t realized WHY exactly they had
dropped off the face of the planet.) It saddens me that some
youtubers/celebrities, especially those with HUGE fan bases like Sam and
Alex, abuse their platforms like this, but the fact that the community is
coming together like they are puts a smile on my face regardless. <3 You
YouTube has become the exact replica of what happened early last year with
Jimmy Saville/Cliff Richards/Freddie Star etc. people are finally being
caught out and it’s brilliant! They are getting their punishment. But the
effects are there for the victims and that’ll never go away. They’ll spend
the rest of their lives with the mental/physical scars made upon them and
that’s what makes this even worse. I am happy to say I have never had
anything happen to me that I’d class a assualt but I’m sure that if it did
I’d do the safest thing and l’d leave but we never know until we are in
that position. As people, we yearn to please others but there should be a
significant difference between doing someone a favour and keeping quiet
about where they are touching you because you don’t want to ‘displease
them’. The best thing that would help would be if ‘hardcore’ fans nowadays
respected themselves and didn’t lie about their age just to gain interest
from the celebrity. Its all about safe guarding: Don’t lie about your age,
don’t trust people on the internet (even if they are a YouTuber) and
realise that only you have a right to your body. I feel bad for the girls
who lied about their age hoping to start this imagined relationship with
the celebrities but ended up being sexually assaulted instead, and trust me
when I say that’s what happens with most of these cases. But it’s never
their fault, it’s their mistake but not their fault. It’s the offenders
fault. Hopefully we’ll catch them all and YouTube will finally be safe.
wait ……you can sexually abuse people over the internet!…….the
internet really is the best thing ever yay!
This was amazingly well said. I really like the fact you talked about how
this happens in society too and not just on youtube. Thank you for linking
my video too!
MY ART TEACHER (MRS STUBBS TAUGHT YOU) IMM SOOOOOO EXCITED AHHHH :DDDDD
Is’t it a bit sad/strange that all the people who have had accusations and
or evidance against them are all men
I’m sorry this is off topic but your make up looks lovely :)
It was published today :/
i’m SO DAMN shocked. i didn’t know about this and thank god i wasn’t
subscribed to those awful youtubers.
people need to understand they don’t know their favorite youtubers, you
only see what they want to share, it’s 10% of their life, a few minutes in
fans MUST be cautious !
BUT, it’s working the other way as well : i had some of my subs trying to
talk to me in a way i don’t like (wanting to know me, asking for email or
phone, skype calls etc) and i just ignored and block them. It was too
scary. it’s important, as a youtuber as well, that i protect myself.
it’s not just about the youtubers behavior towards fans, it’s also fans
those girls are reckless, if you’re 15, you don’t meet or give ur number to
a 20 year old man. I’m not defending their bad behavior, i’m just sayin
that it’s the fans jobs to be cautious and the parents job to tell their
daughters to be cautious. This is for the youtube world and also for the
world in general. There’s thousands of stories of young teenagers abused by
young adults. It is WRONG but that’s not ENTIRELY the fault of the stalker.
It’s not the victim’s fault either but in the beginning, parents should
make it very cleary that it’s dangerous.
i really hope that all the videos will help other girls and bring more
they all agree that they made mistakes : Savannah gave her number and she
regrets it, Ania said she was “fine with the alcohol initially” and she was
the one who agreed to meet Jason in the first place, even though she was 15
and he was 20.
It’s true, those men did something terrible but a 15 year old girl is not
stupid or immature like people are saying, i wasn’t dumb at 15 and i NEVER
spoke to a older guy or gave my number. So i’m sorry if i sound rude but
the men involded in this are not 100% responsible. It’s also the parent’s
fault, the friends fault, the girl’s fault, the media’s and society faul’t.
It’s more complicated than that.
I’m not trying to defend the men involded here but the amount of pure hate
and backlashing they had these past few days is insane. People are
destroying their image and life. youtube is not a court, like others, they
made a huge mistake, they took advantage of their position and abused girls
but that doesn’t make them demons or inhuman. Their life is already ruined
due to their behavior and actions and if people are still following them on
their channel, it’s because they still believe those man can be better.
even though i will not support them, i wil not hate on them either, i think
they paid already and i’m not an executionner or a judge. I just hope
people will learn from this.
In the end, it’s still mostly the abuser fault’s since he took advantage of
a not very smart girl’s behavior in the first place but still, all of this
makes me sad .. it’s sad for the girls, it’s sad for the abusers, both
sides destroyed, online identity destroyed … it’s a shame, really :(
As someone who has only recently become aware of all this, I want to ask
how many of the Youtubers listed have admitted their involvement or been
convicted of crimes related to said accusations?
I’m a little upset that not more youtubers have said something. Zoella and
SprinkleofGlitter seem to be on their merry little launch party, not giving
a flying fuck about this issue. Like, I’d expect them to say something. I
assume they don’t want to as it might upset their audience, but they
should. Especially since they’ve both put forth this image of trying to
help people with self-image and stuff. I think they even made a video about
At this point it looks like it’s only the smaller youtubers that have the
morals and the balls to say/do something.
(And yes I know Tyler Oakley and Hannah Hart said stuff, but only on
I’m so glad we creators are speaking out in abundance. :)
Great video Beckie, thank you for doing this! We’re linking through to this
on our video – everyone needs to know
I know my ears are pink, this is happening more and more with me – I hate
If you bring up my ears (as many of you have) and I respond without humour,
just understand that it’s not a compliment. I’m not being aggressive or
forward, I’m truly fed up of people pointing it out. It’s not funny
anymore. Not only is it an inappropriate off topic comment, but it makes me
feel really down. I can’t control my ear colour – focus on my eyes or what
I’m saying… not the hue of my ears!
How can you abuse by means of a video? Can’t the viewer just turn off the
video? Liberals, if they can’t make you the villain, they will make you a
It is no wonder everyone is going over to UKIP in droves.
are you feminist becki? i’m sick of hearing those kind of morality all the
time, we already know what kind of behavior is appropriate or not, i just
saw sam pepper prank video, and honestly i found it more funny than
anything, personally i won’t do that, but still think the video was ok, and
he also did the prank the other way around with a girl doing it, now i
think the problem with most girl is that you are way too much sensitive to
things, you got hurt too quickly, the girls in sam ‘s video were even
hugging him after the prank, i really don’t understand all the polemic
I don’t think it’s a good idea to make public accusations like this. Right
or wrong, if you name names and accuse, you better be ready to prove it, or
you could be hit with a very expensive libel suite. And there is always the
possibility that someone is being blackmailed with the threat of being
accused of rape.
I suspect that statistically, a large percentage of such accusations are
legitimate. But like any other felony, proof beyond reasonable doubt is
needed to convict a rapist. Youtube is just not the place to resolve these
I don’t subscribe to any of the youtubers mentioned negatively (in fact the
only one at all I sub to is laci green!) so this video was a major shock
for me. I read all the links in the description and I’d hope that I’m now
pretty well informed on the issue. Thank you for making this video and
spreading awareness! I can appreciate how hard it must have been for you to
try and know what to say/if you should say anything about this. X
More things have come forward today and I’ve also had something small
happen in my little world too.
We need to keep talking about all this – even me – it’s hard to talk and
stand up, especially when those who have done wrong are popular or have
fandoms… Sexual abuse and manipulation are wrong. Full stop.
