Tbh everyone jumping on Shane Dawson’s dick now is a bit extreme. I have followed him for 3 years and yes he does make racist and gay jokes, but if you’ve followed him closely you’d know that the only reason he goes so far in portraying African Americans and minorities is because that WAS his life. He does NOT hate black people/people of minority or anyone in the LGBT community. He states that his childhood was filled with such shaming which he now uses as inspiration for his entertainment. He takes from his experience to relate to others with the same. Now I am neither gay nor African American so it’s hard for me to have genuine feelings in this when I myself do not feel threatened by his entertainment, but I also understand where he comes from and why he does what he does. I’ve been called fat and ugly my entire life. As an adult now I make fun of myself and call myself fat and ugly but I am OKAY with my weight and I know I am beautiful inside and out. I chose to MAKE LIGHT of my situation to make fun of my experience. If I were to make a video exaggeration myself and using extremely hurtful fat shaming slurs then people would jump down my throat to say that I am making fun of fat people which makes NO SENSE.
