On Saturday, an old disgusting clip of YouTuber Shane Dawson sexualizing a poster of Willow Smith resurfaced. In the video, Shane is singing lyrics to Willow’s “Whip My Hair,” while it appears he’s groping himself.
Jada Pinkett-Smith did not wait for an episode of “Red Table Talk” to address the issue with Shane Dawson and rightfully so. She and her son Jaden took it to Twitter. In response to the resurfaced clip, Jada made it clear that he was in violation, indefinitely.
In a tweet, Jada wrote:
“To Shane Dawson … I’m done with the excuses.”
Jaden then followed up with,
“SHANE DAWSON I AM DISGUSTED BY YOU. YOU SEXUALIZING AN 11 YEAR OLD GIRL WHO HAPPENS TO BE MY SISTER!!!!!! IS THE FURTHEST THING FROM FUNNY AND NOT OKAY IN THE SLIGHTEST BIT,” he tweeted. “IM SCREAMING AT THE TOP OF MY LUNGS,” Jaden also said.
In another tweet, Jaden spoke about how Shane Dawson showed up in Black face. “This Man Was Also Doing Black Face On The Regular. As The Youth We Need To Support Creators Who Support Us And Our Morals. This Is Not Okay.”

Speaking of Black face, he actually addressed it on Friday. In a video, Shane Dawson offered an apology for all of the racism he brought to the internet.
“I’m going to start with all the racism that I’ve put on the internet as an adult,” he said. “I made the decision to play stereotypes of Black people, or Asian people, or Mexicans, or pretty much every race.”
In another part of the video, he goes a bit into detail about being a “huge problem.”
He stated, “Oh my God! I have been apart of such a huge problem, and I have been avoiding it and that’s wrong.” Shane continued, ” So, I’m so sorry. I’m sorry that I added to the normalization of Black face or the normalization of saying the “N” word.” He continued, “That’s another thing. And my justification at the time for that was I was playing a character and it was in comedy,”
