Vitaly Zdorovetskiy says he will not delete his controversial kissing prank video, despite complaints from the YouTube community.
His video called How To Get Girls To Kiss You shows the LA-based vlogger approach women on the street, ask them a series of questions and then unexpectedly kiss them.
The video was originally posted in May 2013 but went viral again after revelations of sexual abuse within the YouTube community.
In one scene Vitaly grabs and kisses a girl despite her refusing to.
On Tuesday a group of YouTubers in the UK encouraged their viewers to report the video as showing “physical harm”, and many have expressed their disgust on Twitter.
I would like to call ALL the youtube partners + viewers following me to report/flag this video https://t.co/0tPrU8RxPs (1 minute mark) xx

like excuse me but you can't go round kissing girls who clearly don't want to kiss you just for ''''entertainment'''''

The video description claims all women featured in the video signed consent forms before the video was uploaded.
Vitaly told TenEighty he would “absolutely not” remove the video, but refused to answer any further questions.
