YouTube suspends monetization on Shane Dawson's YouTube channels after he apologized for racism


Recommended Posts

Update:

Shane Dawson had a meltdown on Instagram Live after Tati revealed some damning allegations against him and Jeffree Star. Basically, for them trying to ruin James Charles.

After he posted an apology video for "racism," YouTube suspended monetization on all three of his channels. The swift action comes after the YouTuber posted a video over the weekend apologizing for "all the racism that [he's] put on the internet." 

A video from years ago showed Dawson pretending to master**** to a then-11-year-old Willow Smith also resurfaced. 

YouTube says they can retroactively suspend an account for a creator's old content, regardless if their newer videos do not violate community guidelines.

"I'm sorry I added to the normalization of ****** or the normalization of saying the n-word," Dawson said in his most recent apology video. "Me as a white person wearing a wig and playing a character and doing stereotypes and then saying the n-word is something that I should have probably lost my career for at the time."

He also commented on the Willow Smith video. "I swear on my life, I am not somebody who would ever talk about a child that in any way was inappropriate," he said. "That is disgusting. That is gross. It is not something I would ever do. It is something I did for shock value or because I thought it was funny."

Hi!

A quick disclamer, I am not from the US and I do not totally understand everything that happens there with racism, homophobia, etc etc., but I try my best to know everything.

Ok, so if you don't know who Shane Dawson is, he is a youtuber that has been making videos since 2005 or something like that.

One of his old videos has resurfaced, in which he makes a parody of Nicki Minaj by dressing like her and also having brown foundation on his face to look like her.
 


I totally understand where people are coming from with the ****** and racism allegations, BUT, here is my opinion, he has made lots of parodies, to white and black artists, and he has always tried to wear make-up and wigs to resemble them in a way or another.

If he only made a few parodies just to black artists I will totally see it as blackfacing, but he has also done that with white artists, so I don't understand the deal. Wasn't everybody posting about BLM and that we are all equal, so, if he can make a parody of a white artist by dressing like them, why can't he make a parody of a black artist in the same way? (aka. we are all equal)

If somebody can answer me calmly I would love it.

Jeffree Star is the absolute worst and looks like an actual UFO. The fact that he has fans still is beyond me. He’s one of the most racist people in the world

Shane should’ve been canceled years ago with all of his BS theories about Britney. This is disgusting. He’s 100% in black face. And also reminded me how stupid that f’ing song is. Who else wants to be canceled this year?

@Jordan MillerI didn't knew that about jaden, can you explain me what happened to his sister?

I was hoping one of you guys could fill me in too. I’m not super familiar with this dude. I know he’s a YouTube creator with a large following. He made some problematic content that’s been online for years. He did something with Jeffrey Star. Made a conspiracy theory series.

I know people are going to tell me that it's not my place to be offended or not because I'm white, but I just don't see the problem. The jokes about minors, yes - those are nasty, vile and disgusting, but I don't really see the problem with everything else. I don't mind black humor. Plus, it's not like he made those videos today. Back then, it was acceptable, like it or not. And you can just tell Shane is an insecure mother f*cker who uses humor as a defense mechanism. I used to listen to every episode of his podcast back in the day. He would say outrageous **** all the freakin' time, but I always knew he was making it up for the sake of crazy jokes. :martini: I don't mind him getting cancelled, though, because I'm tired of his fakeness. :nyschool:

As if racism isn’t bad enough, but beastiality, pretending to JO to an 12yo and calling it the same this as a foot fetish? :airpls:

Thats effing DISGUSTING! Almost vomit inducing tbh :disappointed:
I know who the dude is, but I’ve never liked him or his crackpot theories about Britney. His bf, Ryland Adams, has also been shady af towards her since he was on Clevver News from like 2012. Happy for this SEE YOU NEXT TUESDAY to be cancelled :mhmnod:

Might I freak ya out, 'magine if I work ya out 😛

Depends... If it's done to dress up as a black person, then I don't really care. If it's done to mock someone based on race like they used to do at those minstrel shows, then of course it's racist. I haven't seen any of his videos in a long time, though, so it's hard to judge. :idkney: The usage of the n-word and calling his black friend "monkey woman" is inexcusable, though. Surprised Shanna was okay with any of that. :nyschool:
