Shane Dawson posted a video on his YouTube Channel last night denying pedophilia allegations.
Someone found an old clip from a podcast he did in 2012 in which he jokes about being attracted to children and googling them. He also said in the same podcast "I'm kidding".
"I'm kidding" "having sex with or touching kids is disgusting" - Shane Dawson in the same podcast that is being targeted— hey mom say who want lasagna (@ifeelsoattacked) January 10, 2018
y’all idk if you know this but Shane Dawson literally went through a very traumatic childhood. I’m not defending him but just know he went through abuse as a child and in his videos he says that he’s disgusted by child molesters. my lord know your stuff before you go bashing him— CHECK & RT PINNED PLS 💓 (@besidedalton) January 10, 2018
shane dawson: does blackface, justifies pedophilia, calls a minor ‘sexy’, makes a subtle joke about rape— lynds loves camila (@Iovedyouharder) January 10, 2018
his fans: IT’S BECAUSE OF HIS CHILDHOOD
i’m not a pedophile. i can’t believe i even have to say that. it literally feels like i’m in a nightmare. https://t.co/i0mo11xNg3— Shane Dawson (@shanedawson) January 10, 2018
I grew up. I changed my content. I apologized countless times for my shitty 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.— Shane Dawson (@shanedawson) January 10, 2018
it’s interesting that the more i speak out about things the more people try to “expose” me. makes me wonder whose behind the “exposing”? 🧐 https://t.co/JuXQjdTri5— Shane Dawson (@shanedawson) January 10, 2018
look, fam, i don't always agree with you but i also don't think you're a pedophile. i think it's wild that you're having to say that. but as someone who's watched you since you began & has seen you mature, i wanna just say that i believe you. keep your head up. https://t.co/HPEmEi2T9H— CHIKA (@oranicuhh) January 10, 2018
