Hey all. I’ve been tweeting updates but I thought putting it all here might be easier. Although you may have noticed some quieting, this problem has not been solved and we’re still working on it. Here’s what I’m personally working on:
❒ Working with the survivors. Another charge of rape has come forward and she may be filing a report/pressing charges. There is some physical evidence. We are evaluating whether or not it’s worth the process for her. Others just want to close the book and move on with their life, but still want to help prevent it in the future. We’re figuring it out. I do hope there are some kind of legal consequences in all of this, but it’s not so simple.
❒ Working with the press. I am in talks with The Guardian, BBC, Channel 4, and The New York Times. It’s unclear what each outlet will be tackling specifically or if the stories will actually be published, but mostly it involves shedding more light on “big picture” stuff and how this problem goes beyond Sam Pepper and even YouTube.
❒ Working on another video - tentatively. I don’t want to create more demands on myself because I’m still on tour and I’m already so stressed that I’m getting sick. I am thinking about a more formal episode of Sex+ that will act as a guide to these situations for community members, creators, and victims.
❒ Working with YouTube itself. We must get a policy implemented and acted upon to boot creators who do this. It is absolutely unacceptable that they can build a career on content that depicts illegal and violating acts. Getting this moving is very tricky because YouTube is notoriously hard to get a hold of and they have been very quiet about all this. Another big YouTuber, who I won’t name for now, has had some luck mobilizing this with higher ups at Google and I am pursuing all my leads as well.
thanks for all your support everyone, really truly could not do this without an army behind me. it’s been exhausting, but i believe down to my bones that we can and will make a change here.
such a beauty
