Shane Dawson Responds & Apologizes For Old "Pedophilia" Jokes

Shane Dawson Responds & Apologizes For Old

Shane Dawson is the another YouTuber facing backlash following an old podcast episode that was just released, where he was heard joking about a “sexy little kid.”

The episode from Shane and Friends was posted on a YouTube Channel that titled the video, “I think Shane Dawson is a pedophile. Here’s my proof,” before it was removed.

After the video was removed, fans have shared quotes from the episode on Twitter and Shane is under fire for them.

Shane did apologize in a new video and actually posted the clip in questions, saying, “I wanted to play that clip in full—that moment especially in full—just for context because that seems to be missing nowadays. I can’t believe I’m having this make this video.”

He adds, going on “record saying I am not a f***ing pedophile. Got it? Great. There’s my statement.”

Shane also apologized for the jokes he made during the old podcast, too: “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 smarter jokes.”

“The jokes are old and were out of context. I’ve been molested in my childhood. I dealt with it by making jokes. And I’ve grown up and stopped doing that. People just don’t want to let me move on. This whole experience was insane and awful and I don’t wish it on anyone.”
