YouTube star sorry for 'joking' about naked babies and 'justifying paedophilia'
YouTube star Shane Dawson has issued a lengthy apology after a shocking podcast was unearthed in which he says he had Googled naked babies and jokes about them being 'sexy'.
On Wednesday, Pop Blast posted an edited audio clip in which the 29-year-old made comments about paedophilia in his podcast Shane And Friends from four years ago.
In the 14-minute apology, Shane - who boasts 11million YouTube subscribers - says the video was taken out of context and repeatedly tells his fans, "I am not a f**king paedophile!"
It's disgusting that some people are saying I'm a f**king paedophile because of some s***ty a** f**king jokes on a podcast from six years ago!"
The stuff that I was saying back in those times I would never say now.
