A German vlogger was arrested by Muntinlupa City police for allegedly harassing a minor woman for his “jowa challenge” content.
Mr. Pogi German, also known as Marcel Messal, was arrested in Muntinlupa City after one of his vlogs went viral on social media. In his vlog, he plays a joke on a purported “pick-up girl” and offers her help.
The victim, identified as “Abby,” claims that the vlogger offered her P6,000 to be a part of his “24-hour Jowa Challenge” content and then promised to delete the video. She had no idea she’d be released as a pick-up girl.
According to Abby, the YouTuber was also aware that she was 17 rather than 18. The YouTuber will face criminal charges because authorities believe something terrible happened to Abby.
Muntinlupa City Mayor Ruffy Biazon declared the German national “persona non grata” because of his content. The vlogger issued an apology, claiming that he had done nothing wrong to the victim.
According to Messall, “Doing something to an 18 years old is bawal. If I know that she was minor, I will never ever agree to her. Because I’m a mabait guy,”.
Messall was also discovered to be overstaying in the country, according to the report, which means he will almost certainly be deported. It is unclear what Messall will do next in order to avoid the severe charges that will be leveled against him.
Meanwhile, authorities warned social media influencers, both foreigners and Filipinos, to be cautious about the content they shared. For the sake of views, content creators should avoid defrauding anyone.
