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

honestly jenna is one of the few people who genuinely learnt without someone forcing an apology out of her. some people that i am friends with (POC and black people), obviously not representative of the entirety of maginalized communities have expressed recognition in her growth. I cannot speak for everyone, but I do think she has grown up a LOT. 

I think she's right though, she's talked about how people referring to her as unproblematic always irked her because she felt very human. While I don't think she ever did ****** and honestly just had a bad tan, (however she did mock asians and admits to it) she was VERY quick to learn without anyone calling her out. I love jenna and I know a lot of people are willing to move past this.

 i am grossed out that Shane and Jeffery are still going to make videos. I am sad about Jenna because I know the kind of person she is and what she stands for. Growth is possible even though it's not my place to speak on behalf of others

 

She is my favorite YouTuber. I’ve been watching her since the very beginning (I’m old.) I hope she decides to come back eventually.

I think it’s a shame she felt that she needed to delete her old videos about “things guys to” and “things girls do”. I will never get behind people who are butthurt over that. They were innocent parodies about stereotypes of men and women and they were actually very funny. Part of what makes a joke funny is the sense of inappropriateness, imo. There are definitely lines you don’t cross though, but to me that wasn’t one of them.

Yeah he’s 10. I would pull all my hair out strand by strand if I had a dog that cried constantly like that. :mhm:

EDUCATION is key. There is no point of cancelling someone if you do not educate them, people can grow and mature.

This point is exactly what every one needs to hear. Without learning from our mistakes, it becomes normal for these entertainers to make an apology video for the sake of, well, apologizing. I am not completely familiar with YouTube culture, but it seems like more attention is on them when drama occurs.

While I do admit that Shane Dawson's Controversy videos were fascinating to view, I can't stand him as a person. He doesn't come off as genuine, and needs some time to grow up and learn from his past actions.

I didnt even know there were degrees of ****** until just now, I'd have never watched that video and thought "******" 

You learn something new everyday though. I am foreign and not very clued up on american social culture admittedly, I should probably educate myself a bit more since we all share the same internet these days.

****** where I'm from is like that old school overtly and obviously racist visual. So thats just the image I always had of ******.

It's so frustrating because 'Cancel Culture' gets looped as one umbrella. There are times when I'm FURIOUS about someone being 'Canceled', because it's over a comment or something made a decade ago that doesn't reflect that persons character TODAY. 

But then there's these cases with *****s like Shane Dawson who've literally made a career out of being an *******. His humor has never been anything beyond childish, bullying tactics. It's disguised as "comedy", but it's SO unoriginal. EVERY OG YouTube start it seems resorted to this because in the 2000's / early 2010's, it was socially acceptable. 

Here's the thing though... quit whining about it on Twitter, and just DON'T watch it? 

People can't claim equality for all and free speech, until it's inconvenient for them. He's an *******.... and I wouldn't care if he disappeared off the internet, but I'm not about to get myself all riled up about it

First off I do not believe Shane Dawson is racist. The internet is a huge place for people without education to jump on an my trendy bandwagon. The internet is a place where a grown adult can argue with a thirteen year old who doesn’t know better. So many people do not understand the difference between racism, being prejudice, and straight up ignorance. Do you know how many people posted a black picture on blackout tuesday yet haven’t donated, researched, or actually committed to making real change in real life? Shane is an entertainer who is women and has made mistakes but this isn’t evidence of him being a racist. Maybe ignorant but I highly doubt his intentions were bad. Sometimes intent doesn’t matter when someone is so ignorant they make a major mistake but this isn’t the case either. If more people were actually educated than the internet and America wouldn’t be so divided. Leave this guy alone. I swear cancel culture was created by little preteens and then you have grown *** adults feeding into like it’s a high school game. If Shane is spewing hate and racism YouTube will “cancel” aka fire him themselves.

I think he does deserve to be cancelled for different reasons. He looks like a *****y queen behind this emotionally sensitive person that has a heart of gold. He hangs out with problematic people so he is okay with the things they do... 

the only thing I appreciated from Jeffree was that he mentioned freebritney and clearly is a stan.

Chile...it’s gonna get worse before it gets better! I kinda believe both sides of the story with this whole Tati, James Vs. Shane &Jeffree. It’s so hard! Both sides have good points and some degree of fault. We should just cancel everyone and get a new set of influencers tbh!
