YouTube star, Sam Pepper, is facing sexual harassment claims. Six women have come forward and claimed they have been inappropriately touched or had indecent conversations with him. Dottie Martin, 18, was the first to break the silence and said she felt uncomfortable when she went on a date to the cinema with the former Big Brother contestant. She claimed that Sam tried to touch her chest whilst the movie was on. She did admit to kissing and holding hands with Sam but confessed that he went too far. Dottie also said that Sam was making her uncomfortable when he started moving his hand up and down her thigh.
Another girl said Pepper messaged her when she was only 15 and asked for a naked dance over Skype. Another woman in her twenties came forward to say Sam had sexually assaulted her at his home two years ago but didn’t come forward because she works in the industry. Out of all six women who have made claims, only one is considering going to the police.
