“I want to apologize first,” says Dawson, 29, whose real name is Shane Yaw. “I am sorry that I used to make really shitty fucking jokes… Back in the day… I loved the feeling of making somebody shocked and laugh because they couldn’t believe what was coming out of my mouth.”
The now-deleted Pop Blast video included edited audio from a July 1, 2013 podcast on Dawson’s “Shane and Friends” show in which he and co-host Lauren Schnipper were discussing an encounter Dawson had in public with a “child who was probably six years old” who began talking about Instagram with Dawson.

Liz MacKean, the former British investigative reporter who
exposed Jimmy Savile and the culture of pedophile protection at the BBC,
has been found dead. She was 52.
