This isn’t the first time Saunders has gotten in trouble for his social media videos. He previously posted a video of himself offering a female drug addict on the street “£150 of crack” in exchange for performing a sex act on his friend and assaulting a stranger for being a “pedophile.” After the woman punched a passer-by, Saunders drove away in his Rolls Royce laughing.
