A prank gone wrong has put a YouTube star in major trouble.
People were outraged when a video of ReSet (real name: Kanghua Ren) showed him giving a homeless person an Oreo cookie filled with toothpaste instead of the typical cream frosting. The incident happened in Barcelona in 2017.
Last week, Ren was found guilty of violating the integrity of a homeless man by the Spanish court. He was sentenced to 15 months in jail although it is likely he won’t serve time because it was a non-violent crime.
This might be the most damaging to the offender. Ren’s YouTube channel and other social media were ordered to be shut down for 5 years. He also has to pay over $22,000 to the victim in restitution.
