ReSet, the YouTuber who humiliated a homeless man by offering him cookies and toothpaste, you won’t be able to upload videos to YouTube for 5 years. This was taken by the Supreme Court after evaluating an appeal by the Prosecutor’s Office, which demanded the same measure, among other things, in 2017 and subsequently overturned the Barcelona Court, as detailed eldiario.es.
ReSet, we recall, published a video on its YouTube channel in which it showed how it offered a person without resources or a house Oreo cookies with toothpaste. In the video, the YouTuber said: “It’s nice when you help a person. Obviously the toothpaste part of the Oreo, I may have gone too far but on the other hand it will help him brush his teeth, I think he hasn’t brushed them since he got poor” and showed how he suggested to the victim a biscuit with toothpaste along with a banknote of 20 euros. The video went viral online and the Barcelona City Council condemned Quenhua R. (his real name).
ReSet will have to leave YouTube after all
A few months later, ReSet was sentenced to 15 months in prison and paid compensation in the amount of 20,000 euros for non-pecuniary damage the person who offered the cookies. The judge also ordered the permanent removal of his YouTube channel, which at the time had over 1 million subscribers. In addition, he banned Kenhua from posting videos for at least 5 years. However, the Barcelona hearing overturned the measure, finding that YouTube “is not a crime scene”.
The prosecutor’s office filed a complaint, which was considered, together with the accused’s complaint about the acquittal, by the Supreme Court, which concluded that ReSet should leave the platform for five years. Full resolution and votes of the three magistrates of the second chamber of the high court.
