Antonio Mallorca's YouTube channel violates multiple Community Guidelines on YouTube. They feature him performing 'pranks' involving groping, public nudity and other sexual content. Examples of this behavior can be seen in this video, this one, and countless others on his channel. This clearly violates YouTube's Community Guidelines, in that they state:
"YouTube is not for pornography or sexually explicit content. If this describes your video, even if it's a video of yourself, don't post it on YouTube."
Moreover, the acts these videos contain are performed in public places such as streets and fitness studios, and this therefore normalizes sexual activity in public and also sexual harassment, in that some of the women he approaches in his videos appear to be reluctant to engage in what he proposes to do, but he nonetheless places pressure upon them to do so, as seen in this video. In In this other video, at 3:09, he is also seen in a corridor standing next to an unconscious woman and while the context of this is not clear, it is unsettling when taken in the context of the other videos on his channel.
This sets a dangerous precedent for content on YouTube and it is important to remember that many of its users are younger people who can be more impressionable. YouTubers can be immensely influential and it is therefore important to hold them accountable when their content has the potential to perpetuate harmful ideas. The idea that what he is doing is merely a 'prank' (even though it isn't, because the definition of a prank according to the Cambridge English Dictionary is 'a trick that is intended to be funny but not to cause harm or damage', which doesn't even come close to matching what he does in his videos) trivializes it and causes it to be seen as just a joke when in reality it has far more negative consequences. It is also misleading because people who are searching for actual pranks may come across his content listed under that topic.
Besides, content like this is just insulting to users who work hard to provide content which is far more educational, informative and artistic. If you want to see better content on YouTube, hold people like this accountable for their actions by signing this petition.
