Did he pinch those girl's asses for sexual gratification? I don't think so. A joke is "something said or done to provoke laughter". I believe that was his goal. I do not personally find what he did clever or funny. He does seem rather douchey -- pranksters typically are. It's in their nature to be cheeky and mischievous.
Sexual harassment: Unwanted physical, verbal or non-verbal conduct of a sexual nature. Incidents involving touching and other physical threats are criminal offences and should also be reported to the police. Sexual harassment isn’t a prank. Sexual harassment isn’t the same as a prank phone call or littering… It’s quite sad you’re trying to defend him and say it was a prank and wasn’t harassment because he didn’t follow them around “all day”. I’m sure if you had a girlfriend, and somebody came up and pinched her ass and made her feel uncomfortable you would change your tune.
Grabbing a woman’s ass when she doesn’t want you to doesn’t really constitute as being just “cheeky” or “mischievous”. It’s called sexual harassment. He is placing women in a situation that they do not want to be in all for the sake of “humour”, which isn’t funny, whether he got sexual gratification or not doesn’t really matter. Sexual harassment is any unwanted behavior or attention of a sexual nature. People can, and have been, charged for doing things similar.
And he has also been accused of rape.
harassment: “to annoy or bother (someone) in a constant or repeated way”. Sam Pepper didn’t follow these girls around all day. He gave them a quick little pinch on the posterior and that was it. But hey, if we’re gonna toss him in the slammer, why stop there? Let’s round up all these other so-called “pranksters” while we’re at it. How can we allow these public nuisances to run amok? They disturb the peace, litter, make crank phone calls… the list goes on. Surely these dastardly criminals deserve to be brought to justice for their heinous crimes?
if puppies could talk I would never even try to make human friends ever again.
but half of them are little bitches
