Shane Dawson denies sexual activity with his cat after podcast story resurfaces

YouTuber Shane Dawson has denied a series of bizarre rumors, after an old clip from his podcast surfaced, where he explained that he “humped” his pet cat and ejaculated on it.

Dawson, best known for his YouTube ‘docuseries’, is one of the most popular creators on the platform with over 21 million subscribers.

In spite of his popularity, he has had to make numerous apologies and clarifications over the years, arising from various controversies.

Shane Dawson is one of YouTube’s biggest stars.

On March 17, a clip in from Dawson’s podcast series ‘Shane and Friends’ from 2014, surfaced on Twitter, in which the YouTuber claims he “spread” the cat’s legs, and “humped” her ‘tummy’, “and I kept humping and humping, and I came all over the cat.”

He also said it was his “first sexual experience” and that he was 19 years old at the time. Unsurprisingly, Twitter users were shocked, but others argued it was part of Dawson’s ‘shock’ style of comedy, where he would make up ridiculous stories for purely entertainment purposes.

Responding to the controversy, Dawson claimed that it was the latter, explaining in a series of Tweets that the “story was fake and was based on a dumb awful sketch idea I had years ago that I never made.”

Other YouTubers like Ethan Klein of H3H3 and Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR‘ Keem responded, mostly satisfied that the entire thing was a misunderstanding over an edgy joke.

It’s the second controversy in as many days for Dawson however, who also had to respond when another clip of discussing child pornography resurfaced, again from an old ‘Shane and Friends’ podcast.

These controversies may have turned some people off to Shane Dawson and his content, but his popularity certainly isn’t struggling as a result. His YouTube documentaries rival even Netflix shows for viewership and his next project is highly-anticipated.


Twitch streamer banned after being denied partnership over age

Twitch streamer AverageHarry has been permanently banned after his partnership application was denied, and they discovered he allegedly signed up while under the age of 13.

AverageHarry has been through a bit of a roller-coaster ride lately. It started back in October 2020 when a video of him getting mocked by strangers and crying on stream went viral.

Since then, his popularity skyrocketed, and he applied to become a Twitch partnered streamer. However, the application was denied in January 2021 after discovering he made the account when he was less than 13 years old, which didn’t align with his account details.

But the drama doesn’t end there. Twitch also said he could lose access to his account because of the restriction. Now, it appears they have doubled down on that claim and made it happen.

Twitch: AverageHarry
AverageHarry went viral after some strangers laughed at him in public while he was streaming.

“I have just been permabanned on Twitch,” said AverageHarry. “For anyone wondering, this is why. He shared a previous tweet, which included a screenshot of the email he received when they denied his application.

“You’ve listed your age as 15, although this doesn’t appear to align with your account details,” said Twitch. “Please get in touch with Twitch support in order to see whether you can update your birthday to be accurate. Otherwise, you may need to make a new account with correct details.”

However, AverageHarry hasn’t given up yet. “I’ll have a video out tomorrow talking about it all,” he said. “I am allowed to make another account, but I have just lost nearly 90k followers.”

He might try and have the ban overturned, which could happen if enough people rally behind him. And it seems like they are, with many people sharing their support on social media. “He genuinely seemed like a good kid,” wrote one user. “Hope he makes a new account and stuff.”

“That Twitch account was made by his parents and given to him by his parents after he was 13 and provided proof for that,” wrote another. “But [he] still got his account removed. [I] hope the best for him.”

In the end, though, Twitch is treating it as a serious matter and won’t want to set a precedent. So, it will be interesting to see what happens and whether their decision is final.
