Jake Paul has mocked ‘canceled’ YouTuber Shane Dawson, who in recent weeks has been accused of racism and inappropriate sexual conduct in past videos.

Shane and Jake already have some history together, with Dawson creating a documentary on Paul called “The Mind of Jake Paul”, which was released in September 2018 and widely cast the younger Paul brother to be a sociopath.

So, needless to say, there has probably been some bad blood in the past between the two, who are some of YouTube’s biggest content creators.

Shane’s “The Mind of Jake Paul” documentary was criticized at the time for allegedly trying to diagnose Paul with a mental illness.

Throughout June and July 2020, Shane Dawson came under fire for a number of reasons: Jaden Smith called him out for “sexualizing” his younger sister, and immediately after a video in which he apologized for racist content in old videos, he lost over 400,000 subscribers.

Jake isn’t exactly a stranger to being canceled himself, even as recently as May when he faced a lot of scrutiny for his role in looting and rioting that took place in Scottsdale, Arizona.

While several people condemned Shane Dawson’s actions and past comments, Jake didn’t – but took an ample opportunity to mock him in his July 5 vlog.

and Kaylyn Slevin to their new room, they mention needing a place to put their make-up – and Jake found the perfect opportunity.

“Do you guys have the Conspiracy collection?” he asks them, referencing Dawson’s collection with Jeffree Star. After they asked for clarification over what that was, he said “Don’t worry, he got canceled” and bursts out laughing.

He went on, referencing the old sociopath allegations, saying: “Who’s the sociopath? Not this guy,” possibly implying that perhaps Dawson himself is a sociopath.

The vlog quickly moved on from Dawson, who wasn’t named explicitly but was clearly referenced. Fans were quick to notice the sly comments, and noted that there is still no love lost between two of YouTube’s biggest stars.

It’s unclear yet whether Shane Dawson comes back from this. He hasn’t been active on social media following his apology video, and has lost over 1.2m subscribers since the initial apology video came out.


Mr Beast struggles through ridiculous 24-hour ice house challenge

Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson is no stranger to over the top challenges but his latest video was one of the most difficult he’s ever filmed, as he struggled to endure 24 hours in a house made completely of ice.

While Mr Beast loves to giveaway crazy prizes to competitors, friends, and even just strangers on the street, he also loves a good challenge. From 24 hours in a prison to surviving on a deserted island, the popular YouTuber has done just about everything.

Looking to push the boundaries even further, his latest task was to endure the freezing cold for a full day. It wasn’t just a cold room with the air conditioning cranked, it was an entire house made of ice. Brick by brick the structure fully was completely encased in ice to keep Mr Beast as cold as possible.

Everything from the chairs to the toilet was also frozen solid. Mere hours into the attempt it had quickly become “one of the harder challenges [he’s] ever done.”

A few hours into the challenge and Mr Beast had to start getting regular checks to ensure he wasn’t in proper danger.

So what was the motive to remain in the ice house? If Mr Beast survived all 24 hours, his closest friends would have to cover themselves “in syrup and feathers” in public. On the other hand, if he left early, the same punishment would be applied.

After a few hours of pacing back and forth to keep his body active, he bargained for a pair of gloves. A nearby crew member handed them over and agreed to a $10,000 deal to be Mr Beast’s “spy” throughout the challenge.

This was certainly one of the more unique challenges on the channel as the gimmick never let up. Mr Beast was even forced to eat a stack of pancakes with a fork made entirely of ice. At the 12 hour mark, he conceded that “it was brutal.”

“Literally the coldest I’ve ever been in my entire life,” he said after the fact. “I was miserable.” Despite the odds being stacked against him and his friends trying to make the challenge even harder, he pushed through to the very end.

Days after revealing his most expensive video ever, it turns out this rather simple challenge was quite costly as well. 

“This video cost me around $300,000 to make. For the price that it cost me to build an ice house, I could have bought a real house.”
