YouTube Axes Shane Dawson's Paycheck Amid Tati-James Charles Scandal
Start writing a post

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.

Taking Accountability

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.

Separation Anxiety in Pets

Separation anxiety in pets is a real thing and recognizing the warning signs is important.

Many pets develop separation anxiety especially during this crazy time when majority people were stuck inside barely leaving the house.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.
