Shane Dawson On His Way To Lose A Million Subscribers: Shane Dawson has faced a justified backlash from people over the Willow Smith Controversy. Now he is on his way to losing a million subscribers soon.
An old video clip of him masturbating over the Radio Disney poster of Willow Smith has been doing rounds on the social media.
The controversy started after YouTuber has posted a 22-minutes long apology video “Taking Accountability”. Shane Dawson had apologized for his past actions in this video.
Soon after, an old video clip of the YouTuber resurfaced in which he is pretending to masturbate over the Radio Disney poster of Willow Smith. Willow Smith was just 11 years old back then.
This video clip drew the rage of Smith family and millions of his followers too. While Jaden Smith said he was disgusted by the YouTuber, Jada Pinkett Smith said that she was “done with excuses.”
Unfortunately, this is not where it ends. Shane Dawson has also been notoriously infamous for doing blackface quite regularly.
Shane Dawson losing subscribers
Needless to say, people are not satisfied with his apology. He has been losing subscribers at lightning speed. He went from 23 million YouTube subscribers to 22.6 million on June 30.
In fact, even YouTube has taken action against his “dark humour” that almost crosses the line over to criminal activity. YouTube has cut off Shane Dawson’s ad revenues from three different channels.
His apology for blackface seems more like an attempt to find a safe place amid the protests against racism in the country.
What makes his “accountability” so shallow is that he did this only under the ongoing protests against racism. If he really wanted to take accountability, why not take it for his pedophilic jokes?
Shane Dawson’s “dark humour.”
The YouTuber is not just guilty of blackface. And neither is he guilty of sexualizing only the 11-year old Willow Smith.
He has cracked several pedophilic jokes before involving as far ‘naked babies’.
More so, he has yet not come forth to acknowledge or apologize for the old video clip involving Willow Smith.
Will it take a universal rage over pedophilic jokes to make him “take accountability” for that?
