Mazzi Maz has publicly condemned Sam Pepper’s ‘ass pinch video’ in an interview with BBC Newsbeat.
Sam has faced criticism from the YouTube community after uploading a video which showed him pinching women’s behinds with his hand concealed by his jacket.
Mazzi, who was a close friend of Sam’s and has collaborated with him on other videos, said: “I woke up this morning and wondered if my mum wants to talk to his mum to see if we should still be friends.”
“I’m now worried I’ll be linked to him. I need to message people to make sure they know we are not the same person.
He told BBC Newsbeat: “I don’t want the whole world thinking I am a sexual predator. I like tea and cheese!”
