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.

While showing new Team 10 members and Instagram/TikTok stars Elle Danjean

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.

TikTok star and singer Dixie D’Amelio has deleted the teaser for her upcoming song with rapper Wiz Khalifa after receiving overwhelming negative criticism from viewers. Her mother has also released a lengthy statement on the matter.

Dixie D’Amelio is a household name in the social media age; the older sister to Charli D’Amelio (TikTok’s most-followed creator), Dixie has carved her own path, most notably releasing her own original songs with such features as Lil Mosey and, most recently, Wiz Khalifa.

However, it doesn’t seem that online critics are too pleased with her music, as seen by the oodles of negative comments on the teaser for her upcoming song with Khalifa, which she initially posted to TikTok.

Many commenters brutally roasted the TikTok star’s lyrics and singing ability, with one writing, “Does she really think she’s a singer now?”

“God help you and your lyrics,” another wrote.

Dixie has since removed the teaser in wake of the criticism, taking to Twitter to vent about her frustration regarding the overwhelming negativity.

“I’m just trying to have fun,” Dixie wrote. “I love music and photoshoots. But I’m losing passion for everything now.”

“I literally can’t be excited about ANYTHING,” she continued.

Dixie’s mother, Heidi D’Amelio, has also spoken out on the issue in a lengthy Instagram stories post.

“To those sh***ing on people who are doing things they love and are getting attention for it — you should find something you love and go do it!” she said. “To anyone who takes the time to type hate towards someone who is having fun and doing what they love, please know you are a classic case of a weak person who is truly pathetic.”

It doesn’t look like Dixie’s nor her mother’s response to the issue is getting any sympathy from critics, though, who continue to levy negativity against the TikTok family royalty for their attitude toward the situation.

“When you’re rich yeah, it’s easy to get those ‘million of chances to do things they love,’” one critic replied.

“Anything you put on the Internet is going to get hate no matter what you do,” another chimed in. “She’s just going to have to get over that and keep her posts up and move forward.”

What’s your take on the situation? Do you think the hate toward Dixie’s creative pursuits is becoming too overwhelming? Or do you think Dixie’s mom has a point about the constant trolling? Let us know on Twitter at @DexertoTrending!
