    Default Filling Oreo with toothpaste earns YouTube prankster a jail sentence

    per Minder:

    It was a humiliating video that fueled outrage on social media. A YouTube prankster filmed himself offering a homeless man in Barcelona an Oreo cookie filled with toothpaste rather than cream.

    Now the prankster, known as ReSet to his followers on YouTube but whose real name is Kanghua Ren, has been handed a 15-month prison sentence and must pay 20,000 euros (about $22,300) in compensation to his victim.

    Ren was found guilty of violating the moral integrity of the homeless man. He is unlikely to serve any time behind bars, however, as Spanish law normally allows sentences of less than two years for first-time offenders in nonviolent crimes to be suspended.

    The Barcelona court, in a verdict published Friday in the Spanish news media, also ordered Ren’s YouTube and other social media channels to be shut down for five years.

    Ren, who was 19 at the time, filmed himself in early 2017 replacing the cream inside the cookies with toothpaste after being challenged by one of his 1.2 million followers to carry out the prank. He gave them to the homeless man outside a supermarket, along with a 20 euro bill. The homeless man was identified only as Gheorge L., a man in his early 50s who was born in Romania and who once worked as a shepherd before migrating to Barcelona, according to the newspaper El País. The homeless man vomited after eating the cookie.

    After the posting of the video prompted widespread condemnation, Ren replaced it with one in which he visited the homeless man again and offered him another 20 euro bill. According to police, he later offered 300 euros to the daughter of his victim in return for not filing a lawsuit.

    In his defense, Ren said that the video was just a bad joke, for which he had later sought to make amends. “I do things to mount a show: People like what is morbid,” he told the court, according to reports in the Spanish news media.
