YouTuber Shane Dawson confused fans on January 2, after he created a brand-new YouTube channel in wake of his successful makeup collaboration with fellow internet celeb Jeffree Star.

Dawson is a familiar face on YouTube, having started his journey on the platform in 2005. He has since gone on to become one of its biggest content creators in recent memory, and boasts over 23 million subscribers.

Known at first for his skits and edgy humor, the YouTuber went on to become a celebrated documentarian, centering on the lives of controversial figures like Jake Paul, Tana Mongeau and Jeffree Star.

Jeffree Star, TwitterShane Dawson went viral in late 2019, thanks to the smash success of his “Conspiracy” makeup collab with Jeffree Star.

Now, it seems that one of the site’s biggest faces is taking another step in his career, as told in a series of Tweets on January 6 and 7 to kick off the New Year.

In his Tweet, Dawson announced the creation of his third channel, “ShaneGlossin,” following the creation of his second account “Shane Dawson TV” in 2008.

“I made another channel for makeup videos and other random stuff I might feel like posting,” Dawson explained. “I just wanted a low pressure place to post stuff if I get creative or inspired at 3 AM.”

This post would explain the random video uploaded five days prior, simply titled, “Test,” which featured Dawson sledding down a snowy hillside — a video that has garnered over 1 million views at the time of writing, in spite of being an obvious “tester” upload from the YouTube star.

“ShaneGlossin’s” creation comes as little surprise to fans, considering the smashing success of his “Conspiracy” palette collab with Star in November 2019 — but not everyone is pleased with this development, and some have even gone as far as accusing Dawson of being a “fake” beauty guru.

“I play with makeup almost daily,” Dawson replied to one critic. “I just don’t post about it because I’m not in the mood to post. After a series I tend to gain weight, spiral, and hibernate for a couple months. Currently in that phase.”

In spite of haters’ complaints, it already looks like Dawson’s channel is seeing massive traction, boasting over 908k subscribers as of January 7 — although fans are still waiting on a new makeup look from the star.

Dr Disrespect trolls mobile gamers and players take the bait

Dr Disrespect has taken a cheeky swipe at mobile gamers on Twitter, asking how anybody can even consider it to be a “serious” way to play – but players are fighting their corner. 

The Two-Time has had a whirlwind 2020 by all accounts. He’s moved platforms from Twitch to YouTube, and while some might have expected his influence on the gaming world to perhaps decrease in that move – he’s still one of the best at stirring the pot.

Of course, a lot of franchises that made their name on PC and console, like Call of Duty, PUBG, FIFA and Fortnite, have brought their games to iOS and Android.

Though, Doc doesn’t seem to be a fan.

Dr Disrespect takes aim at mobile gamers

Dr Disrespect has turned into a mainstream symbol of the streaming world, and sure knows how to get people talking.

On November 26, literally out of nowhere in vintage Doc style, he decided to joke about the idea of playing games on mobile.

He said: “I’ve got 3 state-of-the-art 1ms speed color calibrated monitors staring at me, a keyboard with titan switch optical keystrokes and a mouse that weighs literally nothing backed by a 200k multi pc setup….and you have the guts to tell me mobile gaming is a serious thing?”

As you might expect, he’s sparked a huge debate in the replies – with some arguing for and against his point of view.

One user, by the name of Yettobegin, said: “Well Dr.D not everyone can afford a good PC setup and that’s why mobile gaming is so popular in southern Asian countries.. Anyways I don’t hear any mobile gamers fighting for validation as a “Gamer”.. If u want to play in mobile and have fun who cares?!”

If you thought that was a strong response, wait until you see this.

Tribe Gaming’s Ferg challenged the self-professed best video gamer in the world to a 1v1 in CoD Mobile, with $100,000 on the line. As of writing, that has not been accepted, but it shows there’s certainly a lot of people out there wanting to prove him wrong.

This was not the only challenge, with Elijah Jackson offering a $10,000 wager of his own.

XSET Juicy, who plays PUBG Mobile competitively, also fired back – saying maybe gaming on mobile is too “difficult” for Doc to handle.

Nothing might come from this or Dr Disrespect actually might take up one of the offers, in a way to shoot down mobile gamers who stand in his way.

No matter what, though, he’s certainly achieved his objective of drumming up some debate. What happens next should be interesting.
