YouTube star Shane Dawson took a hiatus from social media after revealing rude comments on his videos that insulted his weight — but now, he’s firing back with a pointed response to the haters.

Dawson opened up about his seemingly sporadic upload schedule in a soul-bearing Tweet on February 19, which included a screenshot of a hateful message that targeted his body.

“I love Shane, but it’s a d**n shame to watch him putting all this weight back on while everyone around him laughs and enables it,” the commenter wrote.

The YouTuber admitted that comments like these prevent him from uploading on a regular basis, and announced that he would be taking a step back from social media due to the rude trolls and being in a “weird headspace.”

Now, Dawson has made his return to YouTube with another video, where he gave an explicit message to any haters hoping to body-shame him in future uploads.

His March 6 upload opened with a montage of celebrity news hosts discussing his Tweet, later panning to a shot of the star working out on a stationary bike alongside his personal trainer in a small gym.

“Listen, my only response is gonna be ‘f**k you,’” he said of the issue. “People who make fun of people’s weight, or attack people’s weight, literally f**k you. You’re gonna die soon. I know it. I can feel it. I’m a psychic.”

Shane Dawson opened up about how rude comments have affected his upload schedule, and claimed that he wouldn’t be making fun of his own weight moving forward.

That’s not all: he went on to reveal that he will no longer be talking about his weight or joking about the matter, and even gave some well-intentioned advice to those suffering from fat-shaming comments online.

“Don’t let things that people say on the internet bother you,” he advised. “…whatever people are saying about you is just a projection of how they feel about themselves, or they just want attention.”

It’s no secret that social media can be toxic, especially towards those with a massive online following — but Dawson isn’t going to give his haters the satisfaction of letting their words affect him any longer, and we’re here for it.

IRL Twitch streamer Jinny was left shocked after two men tried to sell her drugs while she toured the city of Hamburg in Germany.

Jinny has grown quite a following thanks in part to her IRL traveling antics where the Korean streamer routinely has odd adventures. Her trips have resulted in her befriending waitresses at a Texas Hooters, being attacked by wild deer in Denmark, and even setting her backyard on fire.

Now, in her most recent trip in Germany, the streamer found herself in quite an awkward position as she was offered drugs during an October 7 broadcast.

While talking to viewers, a random man suddenly began talking to her in broken English.

“You’re lucky to be in Deutschland. My ganja is the best,” he said. “You get three for five.”

It’s unclear exactly what units of measurement the man was selling three of for five Euros, but ganja translates to marijuana or weed. The incident really shocked the IRL streamer who had no idea what he was talking about.

“I don’t speak German,” she stated as he and another man conversed in the language.

Jinny’s chat warned her the man was selling drugs.

“Do you need ganja?” the man asked in English.

“What is ganja?” Jinny wondered. “Iguana?”

Eventually, Jinny looked at her chat and saw that her viewers were spamming translations and explaining how he was trying to sell her drugs – something she wanted no part of.

“I don’t need ganja. It’s okay,” she laughed and went on her way. “That was very random. Do I look like I smoke weed? Uh, maybe.”

Amusingly, the streamer went on to explain that she was very confused and seriously thought the man was trying to sell her an iguana.

“I thought he said ‘do you want to buy an iguana,’” she chuckled. “Why would I want to buy an iguana all of a sudden?”

Luckily, Jinny wasn’t forced into buying any drugs or reptiles during her encounter, but it just goes to show that even when a camera is rolling, weird stuff happens on a regular basis.
