The same giddy women who helped catapult YouTuber Kevin Samuels to stardom now want him gone from the Internet.
Samuels – a self-described relationship expert – made a name for himself by making degrading comments about Black women.
Now his critics want him gone for galvanizing “men of all races and nationalities in the outspoken hatred of women.”
Over 12,000 people signed a petition on Change.org calling for Samuels’ removal from social media platforms.
The petition claims Samuels’ rhetoric has inspired men to commit “Acts of violence, sexually predatory behavior and even death” against women.
“Women feel unsafe in the presence of men who identify with his ideology and have even been berated while going about their daily lives, (yes, even while at work), with criticisms that have been spoken directly from Mr. Samuels’ mouth. The very words that were spoken on social media platforms have permeated every facet of daily life for unsuspecting women.”
