YouTuber Shane Dawson has hit headlines this week after a video emerged of him admitting to ‘Googling naked babies’.
The 29-year-old was accused of being a paedophile by a compilation video on Pop Blast, which pulls audio from Dawson’s podcast Shane And Friends from four years ago.
Shane then continues by apologising for the remarks, saying it was his previous ‘thing’ to make shocking statements to make people laugh.
Shane has previously caused controversy by using blackface in a number of his videos, playing characters of Wendy Williams and Chris Brown.
