The hacktivist group have gone to town on the “prankster”

We’ve already covered how the YouTube world has reacted to Sam Pepper’s vile video and discussed in detail about what it means for pranking videos as a whole. Now, after YouTube have refused to take the video down having claimed it doesn’t violate community standards, a whole other group have taken a stand to try and have the video deleted.

Anonymous, the online activist group, tweeted out a warning to Pepper which promises to “unleash hell” if he doesn’t remove the video within 24 hours.

The group state – amongst other things – that Pepper’s video emulates ISIS style executions.

Sam Pepper has yet to respond. More updates as they happen.
