YouTuber faces jail for prank on homeless man

Spanish vlogger Kanghua Ren "violated the moral integrity" of the victim of his 2017 prank, the New York Times reported the Barcelona court as saying.

The court also ruled Ren's YouTube channel, ReSet, must be shut down - and he must not post any videos until 2024.

Ren has also been ordered to pay his victim €20,000 (£17,700) compensation.

The New York Times said Ren was unlikely to spend any time in jail, though, as Spanish courts typically suspend sentences of under two years for first-time offenders found guilty of committing non-violent crimes.

Indian YouTuber in trouble over 'prank' kissing

The Delhi police are now investigating the video and have urged "his victims" to file a complaint.

He apologised and deleted his "prank video" after severe public backlash.

Mr Verma posted the video even as reports of mass molestation in the southern city of Bangalore on New Year's Eve caused anger in India.

The YouTuber, who has more than 150,000 subscribers to his "Crazy Sumit" channel, said he had made the video "for entertainment and had no intention of hurting anybody".
