Shane Dawson, is an American YouTube personality, actor, sketch comedian, singer, songwriter and film director. He directed his own movie called “Not Cool” and wrote two books “I Hate My Selfie” and “It Gets Worse”. He has a podcast called “Shane and Friends”. He is also known for his crazy humor and insane jokes.
An edited clip from six years ago was circulation claiming he’s a pedophile and made his look like he was calling babies “sexy.” He responded with a 15 minute video. In the YouTube video he played the unedited clip from his podcast with his co-host laughing. While talking to the camera he stated ” “I am not a f**king pedophile, I loved the feeling of making somebody shocked and laugh because they couldn’t believe what was coming out of my mouth. I wasn’t confident enough to make smart jokes. I was doing shit that was racially insensitive, homophobic, fat-shaming. I was doing some f**ked up comedy stuff that I’m not proud of. I’ve changed so much as a person. That clip wasn’t funny, but when I play that clip you can hear my co-host laughing. That clip started circulating today but they cut it up. First of all, that’s illegal, you can’t say that someone’s a pedophile and say you have proof when they are not.”
Shane later took to his Twitter profile and tweeted “I grew up. I CHANGED my content. I apologized countless times for my s***y offensive jokes. Instead of dragging me down people should use me as an example of a creator who can change and better themselves and their content. I’m so proud of who I am today.” In his second tweet he exposed that YouTube channel by saying “OF COURSE. So now the channel that made that awful video claiming that someone in Hollywood. “made them make a slander video about Shane Dawson” to get revenge on me for talking about pedophiles in Hollywood. I can’t make this shit up.” In his third tweet he exposed the channel by saying ” Also, the channel that “exposed” me also has videos like this. Proving even more so how hypocritical and disgusting they are.”
Shane’s full response video is posted in the link.
