Dramageddon 3.0: Karmageddon

Anybody following the drama that's finally spilled over into the mainstream from the youtube beauty community? The latest: the Smiths have publicly denounced Shane Dawson for pretending to masturbate to a poster of Willow Smith when she was 11 and putting the video online.

The Smiths should probably steer clear of trying to create any controversy about gay people since they have so many gay skeletons in their own closet. I know nothing about Shane Dawson doing this but it's quite obvious for anyone who's seen like 5 minutes of his videos that is was most probably an outrageous joke.

Shane Dawson, who's never had anything to do with make-up before, and Jeffree Star apparently earned $35M in a few seconds after launching their Conspiracy palette last year. Shane got at least $10M immediately, and who knows much after that.

No he hasn't stop making shit up. He's a bisexual (though I truly think he's just gay) formerly morbidly obese kid who got real thin and handsome for a while and used self deprecating humor and shock jokes, just that.

Are you a frau? You act like one. Stop bastardizing pedophilia and real abuse. Making off color and jokes for shock value has nothing to do with abuse or being a pedophile. Pretending to masturbate to a poster of a annoying teen celebrity for laughs is not the same as harassing someone.

Get a fucking clue. I'm sorry I'm a survivor of real child sex abuse, every time you people conflate crude jokes to that you're making it more difficult to real victims to come forward, because you banalize the act and then no one believes us.

r8, this isn't like the director/writer that lost his job on some comic book movie for a one-off, joke about children on twitter or Jenna Marbles getting crap for mimicking that black rapper during a period 10 years ago when she tanned heavily. People aren't dismissing his comments as 'jokes' because he has a history of, among other things, making sexually inappropriate comments usually towards children. Laughing about a baby being raped to death and calling it 'Amazing'; laughing about people fucking his dog; discussing blowjobs with his uncomfortable young relative (a 12 y/o niece iirc); calling a 6 y/o sexy; calling a 14 y/o hot; having a young girl (10 or 12 y/o) twerk for him and telling her how to move her ass better; so on and so forth. All of this on top of his repeated 'jokes' about beastiality and racist 'jokes' finally caught up with him. I'm aware he claims to be gay/bisexual, but there's something off with him and we're better off without fauxlebrities him or that ghoul, Jefree, representing gay men.

Straight teen boys like to act like they're psychopaths with no regard for morality, let alone taste. In his youth, Shane tried hard to fit in this mold, probably as a disguise for his homosexuality. It's probably something his douchey circle of friends used to do. He's unlucky that now, unlike most formerly teenagers, he's a public person and can be held to account for the things he said as a youth.

[quote] What talent does Shane Dawson have? He's not funny. He's not attractive. He's certainly not interesting. Why do people watch him on YouTube? What is it?

You must be old to ask that. When Shane started on Youtube when it was launched he was very hot and thin, after years of therapy and diet. He became popular talking about his past with body dysmorphia and his diet to lose weight as well as doing skits with a plethora of characters that were both funny and popular. Shanaynay being a highlight of his impersonations.

He's an excellent comedian, very versatile. Many of his previous cancellations on social media were on account of his impersonations, specially those of Black celebrities, which of course, idiotic activists today consider blackface, which they were not.

He's not bi, sorry, he's just a gay guy and he's not a pedo, stop banalizing that. He makes crude jokes for shock value.

Ditto, R53. There’s always been a problem of child predators attracted to girls either claiming to be or “acting gay.” Regardless of how Shane I.D.s, he acts femme and camps it up to seem non-threatening to girls and their parents. This has been a problem in child pageants and the entertainment industry for a long time (straight men playing gay, working as acting, dance, vocal coaches in order to gain access to young girls). Shane’s pattern of behavior and weird, evasive non-apologies fits this to a T.

by Anonymousreply 56Last Monday at 2:44 PM

He was making crude jokes, if you can't tell the difference between someone "bragging" about doing shocking things from people actually acting on it, you just have a low IQ. Sexual predators and real pedophiles don't talk about their desires openly on videos and podcasts, how are are you, 12? I guess nuance is unheard of in your vocabulary. He's saying all these things to shock, plain and simple, you're a moron to think otherwise, you're the typical imbecile who gangs up on people with zero critical thinking. Your a pedophile's wet dream, because you conflate everything with it, like a church lady would.

R57 If the best-case scenario is that he’s not a pedophile, just a deranged guy who thinks jokes about pedophilia are funny, I still would not want him around kids.

There’s another youtuber like him - Onision - with the same gross behavior, same excuses, and nebulous sexual orientation (they even look like brothers).

Shane is such an odd duck in the beauty community; he seems to have infiltrated it precisely to gain a huge fanbase of young girls and nothing more. If he REALLY wants shock value, he should go back to being the guy he was BEFORE he did his youtube makeover.

Imagine the reaction if he dropped his “edgy bisexual” persona in favor of his former self - fat nerd with messy hair, baggy T-shirt and cargo shorts, asking a preteen about her period; fake-masturbating to a poster of an 11 year-old celebrity; teaching a 12 year-old girl how to use a Peeps marshmallow chick as a dildo. Now THAT would be shocking.

I wish the people who are so paranoid about pedophiles lurking everywhere would relax a bit. There is something very primal about the issue that causes people to lose all sense of justice and operate purely on emotion. There's a reason why some idiot threatened everyone at a pizza place because of an alleged "pedophile ring".

And it's not just people with kids, either. It's a cultural thing and I think it actually makes true pedophiles harder to spot because there are so many false positives with these accusations being thrown around every time someone makes a crude joke or comment.

I came back to add, that Shane also...

- admitted to searching for CP;

- joked about being scared of his computer getting stolen because "you know how much blackmail they would have on me? I mean the fact that I haven't been on to catching is like my miracle";

- was accused of weird sexual abuse of his cat;

- 'joked' about people fucking his dog;

- mimed about masturbating to a then 11 y/o Willow Smith;

- went into detail about how he wanted to dismember a woman that criticized him;

- talked with his young cousin (13 at the time) about sex acts and her period as well as having her perform sex acts on a sausage;

and there's this gem below

People going after Shane aren't being hysterical, they're are recognizing him for the disturbing individual he is.

First of all, he wasn't an untalented person just talking about himself, he was a talented comedic actor, who did many impersonations and created very popular and creative skits that went on for many years. I've even posted a link to a video of his from 10 years ago. He was so popular he was even considered for a pilot at the CW at some point, so your point is moot.

As for talking about themselves, a lot of people care about that. Haven't you heard about advice columns and teen magazines? Maybe you're just too old to understand this and I mean no disrespect, but you seem to still perceive social media and Youtube as a carbon copy of TV, when in fact it is the opposite of that.

Social media is a hybrid of TV, news station, magazines and personal journals, all at once. Its segmented nature is successful precisely because it allows for all sorts of diverse content a tv station would never be able to cover, that includes listening to other teens and people like yourself or who you perceive to be like yourself, sharing their problems and giving you advice, like magazines, advice columns and journals do. So to answer your question, a lot of teens, in fact millions of teens and young adults give a lot of shit about that, as you did with the older media outlets when you were young.

That's why youth spends more time on Youtube and social media than watching TV or reading magazines.

OKAY, you fangirls who say that I’m an alarmist for pointing out the red flags: I watched Shane’s most recent content, and it looks like he’s left the beauty community for horror enthusiasts. Good for him. It’s the perfect outlet for Mr. Creepers. However, he’s giving off a major Michael Alig vibe, so if dismembered transients are one day dug up in his basement, don’t say I didn’t warn you!

That said, even though Alig threw pieces of his drug dealer into the Hudson, he’s a free man - with a youtube channel, naturally. Because Michael, like Shane, has “IT,” baby. Both clowns are untouchable, because people want to be entertained with DRAMA, like, seeing an 11 year-old boy pretending to inhale ketamine off a drag queen’s ass with a convicted murderer.

You told us what? That a fat gayboy made crude jokes for shock value to be validated 10 years ago? We already know that. As for Dawson, this is what my experience with PR tells me will happen. With the management he has, of a top agency, UTA, he'll be doing his horror movie next year and probably another conspiracy series. He had already quit the beauty world before this stupid cancellation came along. He had survived 3 already and this won't be any different. Maybe the attention whoring of the Smiths might complicate things, but he'll survive that.

He's actually lucky all the attention went to the stupid Willow video and not his blackface past, given the current BLM climate. Trust me hes better off with it.

I think it's clear as water Shane is a full blown homosexual, all this bisexual thing was just his way out of the closet. He's clearly gay so I don't think he cares about women, much less about little girls.

You may be grossed out by it, but that doesn't make them any less common among young men of all ages, even the gay ones who aren't prissy queens. I've made some of these comments as a teen, and I'm gay and love bears, so hardly a pedo. It's sadly a very common behavior and that doesn't make us pedophiles like the hyperbolic church lady says.

If you didn't react in such over-the-top hyperbolic fashion I doubt people like Shane would say such things.

All of the comments you're using for him, by the way - "creepy", "pedo" "red flags" are words that homophobes have been using for ages to label gay people with a broad brush. I'm thinking you either aren't gay or have some internalized homophobia of your own you're dealing with.

I've hated Shane for so long. I'm glad he's getting cancelled. It's what he deserves for pretentiously fancying himself a "documentarian" because he makes hour long youtube videos about whatever the drama of the month is.

He talks a big game about having no self esteem but he clearly thinks a lot of himself and has a huge ego. Anybody who has the self image issues he claims to have would have killed themselves after being cancelled. We're on like the third day of his cancellation and yet he's still defending himself. That should tell you something. The "boo boo I hate myself" thing is all smoke and mirrors used to generate sympathy. In reality he's a narcissistic sociopath.

r101 This is the inevitable result of equality: gay teens are going to grow up at the same rate as their straight peers, instead of suppressing themselves until college or later. Until James Charles, we never saw a queer go through his terrible teens in the public eye. We, as a community, can't suppress this even if we wanted to. We can only remind the straight world of how much leeway they gave themselves during their teen years before they emerged to eventually become productive members of society.

Now, back to the top, I'm fairly intrigued by this whole debacle because we're witnessing first hand the future of brands an celebrities in the age of fast information and PR. This is interesting and a masterclass on crisis management and a case study on the implications of oversharing that us millennials seem to be unaware of.

Here's Shane's reaction to Tati's video. Why did he stream his reaction? UTA is doing a terrible job here, where's Greg Goodfried? Is he sleeping through this? This kid is one of his biggest clients.

Billie Eilish on the other hand just unfollowed everyone on her social media this week, best fucking move.

The most absurd thing of this is that James Charles though inappropriate with his sexual harassment is not a predator. He goes after bigger and stronger guys, it's ridiculous to assume this short pocket femme queen is a threat to anyone, specially the guys he's trying to sexually harass. He'd be punched in the face big time if his behavior were of a real predator. Of course this is cancel culture so a joke equals real harm, so what do I know?

Puh-LEASE!

That Google Doc is interesting but it's very Tati Westbrook-slanted. Once again, she paints herself as this clueless victim (a clueless victim who happened to start a beauty empire, which means she isn't clueless and isn't a victim), same way she did with the whole "Bye, Sister" video trying to get James Charles cancelled.

My guess is that she's trying to stay ahead of the drama because she was squarely involved in trying to cancel James Charles originally, and is accusing Shane and Jeffree of manipulating her (again, her poor, clueless CEO self! Tee hee!) so she doesn't get dragged down with them. Remember Tati is a "kick 'em while they're down" kind of drama queen.

Shane and Jeffree are cunts as well, but I'm definitely not buying the "poor widdle me" act from Tati, who, let's recall, was an actress before all this.

If she actually had receipts she would have given them to her lawyer and they would have filed a case and she wouldn't be promoting it on her channel. She did the same thing in the "Bye Sister" video where she claimed to have more proof, but James Charles called her and Jeffree on it and she looked really bad because she didn't actually have anything.

And beauty Youtube followers are DUMB! They would have been eaten by lions in the olden days.

Conspiracy with Shane Dawson was apparently his biggest selling item ever. Now, the numbers I posted were reported in many places. Are they true? They are probably true the same way we hear a movie star makes $20M a movie, a figure before taxes and other expenses, like paying their management etc. If you haven't noticed Jeffree Star is loaded. Sure Star could be exaggerating but he seems to be truly viewed as a successful businessman and since the numbers from his businesses are public information anyone can go and check them.

Plot ideas for the FICTIONALIZED film or miniseries:

1. James Charles really DOES prey on Grayson, inspiring Jeffree, Tati, and Shane (all aging YouTube personalities), to concoct a plan using Grayson’s allegation to ruin their younger and much more beautiful protégée, who they see as a threat to their (fading) careers.

2. James Charles does NOTHING wrong, but the three older vloggers bribe or pressure young Grayson to fabricate the incident.

3. The drama is orchestrated by ALL involved - including JC himself - as a publicity stunt to increase followers and views, with a “he said/she said” strategy that constantly balances allegations from each participant against the others, causing a seesaw effect like a kinetic machine that creates endless conflict, but ruins no one’s career because the allegations are never proven or legally pursued.

Each version concludes with the participants distancing themselves from the Fredo Corleone of their gang, because he’s a dumb, unstable benzodiazepine addict with terrible judgment who’ll capsize the ship if they keep his fat ass on board.

James Gunn is still directing a Disney film regardless of the same stupid witch hunt over shock joke he's made about sex with children and this is Disney we're talking about. Unlike Gunn, Shane is a genuine guy and apologized for his mistakes the right way. You can bet that apology video was vetted by UTA. The only obstacle here is the Smiths, that video resurfacing now made things complicated, they were not prepared for that. I think it's safe to say he will issue an apology directly at the Smiths soon. That would be a smart way to handle it.

R161 is the same dude who was pissed at me on another thread because I work in development, he made the same childish joke about getting coffee, etc, that's how short of imagination he is.

That's what happens when your audience is mostly teenage girls. Add effeminate shallow gays that came with his beauty world experience and this circus was expected. He didn't get this much vitriol with this "blackface" past from his fans before, because it was the beauty community people that took this absurd accusations to the core.

If I were Shane I'd be collecting evidence to sue for slander all the tea channels blatantly accusing him of being a pedophile. I'd also gather as many teens with their social media and would sue them in court too. That'd send the message you can't just slander people based on jokes. Good luck proving your accusations in court.

R167 Most of the complaints are for his inappropriate behavior with minors and his fixation on pedophilia as being so “haha, funny” just because it’s taboo. True, some comedians can pull off bestiality and pedophilia jokes if they are clever and have a point, but Shane’s humor is lazy, dumb and repetitive, which is why people sometimes wonder if he’s joking or venting. (Where there’s smoke, you know.)

These opinions aren't libelous because there’s plenty of video evidence to support them. Shane even did his own video called “Creepy TV Moments” where he made similar insinuations about Family Feud host Richard Dawson. Ironic. But - yeah - if anyone actually accused him of actual illegal behavior with NO witnesses or evidence, I agree that would be potentially libelous.

I looked up a bunch of info on Tati. to get a better read on her..found a discussion board that has tracked her every move for over ten years! She tried to be an actress - doing tv and reality tv until that failed. Nothing really bad about her but her husband is not a nice guy. He comes from a wealthy family - although his wealth came with some very underhanded stuff that his family sued him for!

The video shows why her dance career failed! She said she had grown up taking dance...she should sue her teachers!

When a woman in her 40s starts a feud with a teenage boy over vitamins I think it's safe to assume she's not a great person.

A bunch of mean girls and guys in their mid 30s and early 40s acting like children to an audience of teenagers and immature young adults. A summary of all of this. Pure gossip people are treating like the second coming, because involves money and the businesses. Shane is the scapegoat here. His cancelation has nothing to do with the drama of Tati/Jeffree/James and they used his past to smear him a day after he decided he wasn't having it with this clique of mean girls.

Tati's video has 375K likes and 268K dislikes. It's pretty even. Trisha Paytas video destroying Tati Westbrook video is currently 171K likes and 24k dislikes. I think Shane will come out of this OK, apparently his stuff is still being sold on Jeffree's site, so he doesn't need Walmart or whatever to sell his stuff.

Frightening how in the end, this is all a popularity contest throwing us back to high school.

Trisha Payta's video is very good and she talks about BLM and she's straight to the point on Shane (her friend), Jeffree and Tati.

Shane’s older videos are all over the place now, but there’s one with his mom being creepy, which actually made me feel sorry for him because his family seems f*d up. It’s likely they normalized that kind of behavior, causing him to have a delayed adolescence (I can totally see an average 13 year old boy doing the offensive schtick Shane did when he was his 20s.)

So maybe he HAS grown up since then. Have any of his blackface routines or pedo comments been very recent?

r189 they're trying to cancel JS too, and he actually deserves to be cancelled. Psychopaths shouldn't have that much money or power.

Also Shane's makeup seems to have been a side business, as he has other irons in the fire.

r188 Tati isn't in her 40s; She's in her 30s and few years older than Jeffree Star and Shane Dawson. They were all pathetic 30-somethings who weaponized their followers against a young gayling over vitamins and makeup.

r190 Trisha is a trainwreck of human being. She mentions BLM to deflect criticism away from Shane, but what substantive things has she done to use her platform or personal time/money to further the movement? An IG or Twitter post doesn't count.

r192 Jeffree is the worst of all three and always seems to survive scandals that would take down other gurus/personalities -- he's like a roach or a Trump. It's particularly disgusting that Jeffree, a gay man, was playing up a homophobic stereotype (the gay predator) to attack James.

Tati is forty-two, she lies about her age.

Tati is NOT in her thirties.

Tati is a 40 something Karen a very mean and dangerous one.

I thought she was barren adding to the fraught “I was going to have IVF treatment, but was too wrecked from Dramageddon 2 and my fragile body could support a life growing in it and it’s all Jeffree and Shanes vault I’ll never have children now innuendo.” But a video came up where she has James hide in the closet, which she makes snide remarks about multiple times, and then he jumps out and surprises her son by doing him up in drag. If she was so worried about predator James molesting straights why did she have him do a drag make over on her own child? Unless her son is gay maybe?

Yeah there's no way that hag is 38. She's mid-forties. Her face is too aged to be anything but at least 40, no matter how much makeup and soft filter lighting she gives herself.

Shane is 31.

Jeffree is 34.

r197 she never thought he was a predator. She is very manipulative and for some reason, dumb people seem to fall for it. I'm surprised she hasn't tried becoming a self-help guru where she dispenses pop psychology meaningless bumper-sticker babble.

Waiting till your over forty to have a baby, yeah, that's a smart move.

by Anonymousreply 200Yesterday at 5:26 PM

OMG!!!! I am trying to understand it all! Its all so stupid!!!!!!!!!!!!

I like Tati, and she is my age, why is she involved with this trash. Her husband is loaded... And her fake "tears??"

For the life of me I cannot figure this shit out!

All I can say is that Jeffree Starr seems like a HUMAN TRASHBIN (at his core) and the other dude is just paying for his awful words and actions from 5-10 years ago?

Its the most bizarre group of folks, ever

by Anonymousreply 201Yesterday at 5:31 PM

R201, you sound like a straight homophobic woman. Tati is an angel and the gay men around him are trash? Yeah right. She's the worst of them all.

by Anonymousreply 202Yesterday at 7:20 PM

R202- MORE!!! What is the deal with these people!!!????

I truly do not know what the fuck is up and who is who?
