Before starting off this blog post, I want to clarify that everything I am talking about is ALLEGED. No one from Logan Paul's team has said anything about the current situation against Shane Dawson. Right now everything is speculation and rumors.
Last night Shane Dawson released a video titled 'Regarding the rumors about me today.' Earlier in the day, rumors started to pour out about Shane Dawson being a pedophile. A video began circulating about alleged proof that Shane Dawson is a pedophile with clips and audio from his YouTube channel as well as his podcast.
Late in the night, Shane Dawson posts a YouTube video talking about the rumors and exactly why they are not true. Afterwards, Dawson took to Twitter to further discuss the issue. Shane Dawson has faced controversy over previous content he had posted over the years on his YouTube.
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
Also, the channel that “exposed” me also has videos on their channel like this. proving even more so how hypocritical and disgusting they are. pic.twitter.com/amBw3tPDKl— Shane Dawson (@shanedawson) January 11, 2018
After confronting the issue, the channel that uploaded the video against Shane Dawson came out saying that someone from Logan Paul's team had paid them to create a controversy. Allegedly the person from Paul's team paid YouTube Channel Pop Blast to create a new controversy to cover up all the heat on Logan Paul.
If this rumor turns out to be true, it shows a new low for the Paul team. Could this easily be a YouTube channel getting called out for their content and trying to cover themselves? Yes. This is a HUGE claim, that could really ruin someone's reputation. I have talked openly about my distaste for the Paul brothers, but having alleged paid to throw someone under the bus is a huge claim. Even Shane Dawson put down the rumors saying he doesn't believe them.
i genuinely think someone was trying to make a conspiracy theory about me in real time. uploading clues, hints, etc. i don’t believe logan’s people had anything to do with it. it seems almost scripted. it’s all very fascinating. gotta love the internet! https://t.co/4deWoZm0ib— Shane Dawson (@shanedawson) January 11, 2018
Right now we don't have a lot of answers, but personally I don't believe that Paul's team would do that to Shane Dawson. I am interested to see the statement that his team will release though.
