Hours after Shane Dawson posted a statement of regret video for past supremacist conduct, a clasp surfaced that demonstrated Dawson seeming to contact himself in a sexual way while taking a gander at a banner of a 11-year-old Willow Smith.
Both Jada Pinkett Smith and Jaden Smith got down on him about Twitter.
On Friday night, the acclaimed YouTuber posted a 20-minute video where he was sorry for his past hostile activities, for example, wearing blackface, utilizing the n-word, and kidding about pedophilia.
“I have done a great deal of things in my past that I loathe, that I wish I could make disappear, that I attempted to make disappear by erasing recordings, or un-labeling my Instagram, truly doing whatever I can to imagine those things didn’t occur,” he said in the video, named “Taking Accountability.” “Since truly, I was sorry for a ton of them yet I’m 31, very nearly 32. Those expressions of remorse suck. I don’t have the foggiest idea who that individual is any longer … This video is originating from a position of simply needing to take ownership of my poo.”
Dawson, who has more than 4.3 million YouTube endorsers, explicitly tended to old sketch recordings of him depicting Black, Asian, and Mexican individuals in cliché ways. He proceeded to apologize for utilizing blackface just as the n-word on his channel, and conceded those activities should’ve finished his vocation.
“The most concerning issue with me doing that and posting it on the web was it made youngsters at the time who were watching me think it was OK,” Dawson said. “I’ve had individuals let me know, ‘No doubt, I used to watch your recordings as a child and I saw nothing amiss with that,’ and that is unnerving in light of the fact that it caused me to acknowledge, goodness my god, I’ve been a piece of such an enormous issue, and I have quite recently been maintaining a strategic distance from it, and that is off-base.”
He proceeded: “I’m so grieved. I’m sorry I added to the standardization of blackface or the standardization of saying the n-word … It is anything but an amusing word, particularly for a white individual to state. Me, as a white individual, wearing a wig and playing a character and doing generalizations and afterward saying the n-word is something that I ought to have most likely lost my profession for at that point, and there’s no measure of saying ‘sorry’ that can remove it … I was simply one more white person who can pull off anything.”
Dawson at that point addressed his youth experience, proposing he managed torment by making unseemly jokes—like his remarks on pedophilia during a 2014 web recording.
“I swear on my life I am not someone who might ever discuss a kid that in any capacity was improper,” he said. “That is appalling, that is gross, it isn’t something I could ever do. It is something I accomplished for stun esteem or in light of the fact that I thought it was amusing. Everything gross and I guarantee that that isn’t genuine; that isn’t me.”
Despite the fact that he has apologized for his hostile conduct before, Dawson said he is presently ready to confront full repercussions.
“I’m willing to lose everything,” Dawson said close to the furthest limit of the video. “Now, acknowledging what number of individuals I’ve harmed or what number of individuals I’ve propelled to express terrible things or do anything horrendous, to at long last only own up to the entirety of this and be responsible merits losing everything to me.”

His video came only a day after individual YouTuber Jenna Marbles declared she was leaving the stage in wake of recharged reaction over recordings from 2011 and 2012. One of the dubious posts demonstrated Marbles mimicking Nicki Minaj while sporting blackface.
“It was not my aim to do blackface,” she said. “I would like to disclose to you how amazingly sorry I am in the event that I at any point outraged you by posting this video or by doing this impression, and that that was never my aim. It’s not alright. It’s dishonorable. It’s dreadful. I wish it wasn’t a piece of my past.”
