  • Shane Dawson disappeared under growing backlash this week against his old racist content, along with his conduct and statements regarding children and pedophiles that many deemed to be inappropriate.

  • Dawson’s explosive written response and video apology were drowned out by angry comments and exposé videos — which also targeted his frequent collaborator Jeffree Star.

  • Together, Dawson and Star have spent the past two years cultivating controversy for their own benefit, but the tide has now turned against them, and they’re losing friends and followers.

  • Notably, Dawson was called out Saturday by Jada Pinkett Smith and Jaden Smith, and on Monday, Target told Insider it was removing his books from shelves.

  • On Tuesday, Dawson was demonetized by YouTube and his makeup was dropped by Morphe.
