He called a 6-year-old “sexy.”
YouTube star Shane Dawson has been accused of being a pedophile after a podcast interview he did six years ago resurfaced in which he referred to a 6-year-old girl as “sexy.”
Someone compiled a five-minute video originally titled “Shane Dawson is a pedophile. Here’s proof.” It was posted Jan. 10, but has since been removed by YouTube. It featured some highly inappropriate comments from Dawson.

YouTuber Shane Dawson is beyond furious on Jan. 10. A random fan account put out an edited video in which Shawn made jokes about being a pedophile, and took his words out of context to make it sound like he was calling babies “sexy.” He has since released a 15-minute video apologizing for the immature jokes that he made in a podcast six years ago, but making it very clear that none of it is even remotely true. “I am not a f—king pedophile,” he says repeatedly, insisting that the accusations are “disgusting.”
Shane says that back when he said those things, he was insecure, and was trying to make people laugh by shocking them. “I loved the feeling of making somebody shocked and laugh because they couldn’t believe what was coming out of my mouth.
