Pedophilia, racism, and bullying oh my!

YouTube Axes Shane Dawson's Paycheck Amid Resurfacing Of Tati-James Charles Scandal

On Tuesday, YouTuber Tati Westbrook published a 40-minute long accusing fellow YoutTube creators Shane Dawson and Jeffree Star of manipulating her into posting the ever so scandalous "Bye Sister" video slamming James Charles with accusations of sexual assault on minors amongst other accusations in May of 2019.


It seems as though the long-running career of one of YouTube's first and most popular uploaders Shane Dawson may be seeing his time come to an end on the platform as Tati's video is not the only thing adding to Dawson's downfall.

Shane's past content has resurfaced, documenting racial slurs, usage of the N-word, and blackface to name a few. On Friday the 26, he posted a 20-minute long apology video acknowledging and admitting to his wrongdoings.


The same Tuesday that Tati's video went up YouTube took away ad revenue from all three of Shane's YouTube channels and Target pulled all of Shane's books in stores from their shelves. He even states himself in his video "I should lose everything." A prime example of the internet's cancel culture on social influencers in action.

Surprisingly Shane went live on Instagram (which has now coincidently been deleted) stating that Tati was lying and fake crying in her video.

Additionally, a clip resurfaced of Shane pretending to masturbate to a poster of then 11-year-old Willow Smith. Leading supplementary pedophilia accusations to come to arise as he has also been found in a leaked video joking about finding a 6-year-old as "I don't know if I am allowed to say this but she was sexy."

Since Tuesday both Jeffree and Shane have been silent with no tweets, videos, or Instagram-live's to be seen. As #shanedawsonisoverparty and #karmageddon are trending it's clear that Shane will be taking at least a break from the YouTube platform.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
