Ex-Big Brother housemate and controversial YouTube star Sam Pepper has caused worry from his fans after tweeting ‘I give up’, and deleting his YouTube channel.
Sam, who has faced backlash for a number of his public ‘pranks’ sexist remarks, and accusations of groping fan recently shared a new video in which he called women “hos” and made crude sexual comments at crowds in the street in an effort to procure phone numbers.
The star previously hit the headlines after he posted a video called Santa Getting Girls’ Numbers in which the 26-year-old dressed in a Santa costume in an attempt to chat up women on a busy shopping street in California.
Sitting on a bench, Pepper said lines such as: “Where are the ladies out here today? Ho ho ho, I need to get me some hos.”
Sam also upset people with his video called Fake Hand Ass Pinch Prank, grabbing bottoms of innocent bystanders.
Pepper’s YouTube account has since been deleted by himself in December last year.

His most recent video, which he shared with his 2.3 million YouTube subscribers, was then followed by fans tweeting their worry for the star as well as confusion.
“I hope this isn’t another prank,” one user wrote, whilst others weren’t so impressed: “see ya in hell.”
Another wrote: “People make mistakes but why does his have to be pointed out every damn second of his life?”
While another wrote: “Holy s***. I don’t care what mistakes someone makes, he’s a human. Don’t ever tell someone to hurt themselves.”
Pepper, who appeared on the final Channel 4 series of Big Brother in 2010, has been accused of sex offences in the past, with one teen called Dottie Martin telling BBC’s Newsbeat that she was touched inappropriately by the YouTube star on a date.
However, Sam was investigated for a separate incident in 2014, and it was dropped after the woman in question refused to testify against him.
