After more than a decade on YouTube, it looks like Shane Dawson’s days as a content creator on the platform are over. YouTube took action against Dawson on June 29, after he was linked to another round of lewd behavior and beauty guru drama. However, the YouTube community has been trying to get Dawson canceled for ages. The controversial creator has been accused of racism and lewd behavior multiple times over the years. A recent video of Dawson pretending to pleasure himself to a poster of an underaged Willow Smith appears to have been the last straw.

YouTube has demonetized all three of Shane Dawson’s channels

In light of Dawson’s recent drama, YouTube has taken pretty severe action. All three of Dawson’s channels, including Shane, ShaneDawsonTV, and ShaneGlossin have been demonetized indefinitely. YouTube generally reserves such punishment for content creators who repeatedly act out in inappropriate ways.

For example, Logan Paul, who uploaded a video depicting a suicide victim in Japan, briefly had his ad revenue suspended. Paul removed the content and issued a public apology. YouTube eventually restored his ability to earn ad revenue. JayStation, who has six million followers, quit YouTube in a huff in February 2020 after YouTube demonetized him, according to Business Insider.

There is no word on when or if
Dawson’s earning potential will be restored. Still, many within the community
are hoping YouTube takes a permanent stand against Dawson, who has used blackface,
racial stereotypes and has often joked about pedophilia on his YouTube channels
and on his social media accounts.

penned two books, I Hate Myself, and It Gets Worse. I Hate
Myself was published in 2015. It Gets Worse was released the
following year. Both books made it to the New York Times Bestseller
list.
