Popular YouTuber Shane Dawson is a familiar face on the video platform, more recently hailed for his critically-acclaimed documentary series – another one of which may be on the way, very soon.

While Dawson’s past series covered the scandals of controversial YouTubers like Jeffree Star, Tana Mongeau, and Jake Paul, he has been known to branch out into conspiracy theories, as evidenced by his two videos released in early 2019.

While he hasn’t spilled the beans as to what his next project is about just yet, he did give fans a cryptic teaser in the form of a few photos on June 8.

Dawson uploaded three photos to Twitter, which showed his face on the viewfinder of a camera, as well as a video setup in what seems to be a hotel room.

The YouTuber said nothing about the photos, besides a series of emojis: a bell, a door, a key, and a VCR tape.

Dawson pinned the photos to the top of his Twitter account and has yet to Tweet again as of June 9, leaving fans seriously stumped as to what his next project could be.

The most popular ongoing theory suggests that Dawson’s next series will investigate haunted hotel; although, considering his latest stint in conspiracies, it could just as easily deal with hidden cameras – a horror story that has haunted many a traveler.

Dawson has likewise teased his upcoming project with makeup mogul Jeffree Star, with whom Dawson created his ‘The Secret World of Jeffree Star’ series in August 2018.

Although nothing concrete has yet been revealed for their upcoming video series, the two teamed up to review Kylie Jenner’s skincare line as a “break” from filming the project, which saw a wave of buzz across social media after they effectively “shaded” the product line.

In fact, Dawson’s series have been so popular that they have even incited public statements from major companies, as seen in Chuck E. Cheese’s response to his video detailing the conspiracy theory that claims the restaurant reuses old pizza slices.

Whatever his next series might be, fans can’t wait for its grand reveal – the date of which has yet to be announced as of the publication of this article.

YouTuber Shiey has hit out at YouTube after the platform decided to shut down his channel, for seemingly no obvious reason.

Shiey is a popular YouTuber with more than 1.3 million subscribers and has built up his following from posting hairraising videos of train surfing and dangerous physical feats. Lately, he has been uploading videos for his series in which he train surfs across Europe.

Part 1 and Part 2 of his Europe journey are still live on his YouTube channel, but Shiey recently tweeted that part 3 of the series had been taken down by YouTube because it violates the “harmful and dangerous” policy.

The removal of the video is part of YouTube’s strike system where a user is banned from uploading videos for two weeks if they violate the platform’s policy twice, and the channel is permanently removed after three strikes. Shiey says YouTube is currently preventing him from using his main channel.

Shiey is in the process of appealing the strike on his channel

Shiey tweeted a screenshot of the warning sent to him by YouTube and posted: “Interesting how they let other channels do the same thing, but not me,” and refuted the decision.

They added: “Btw part 3 was a 30 min video with 5 min of train stuff and 25 min of me walking ’round town with ice cream, camping, and swimming. Sick choice for takedown…”

YouTube does give creators the choice to appeal, which Shiey has done, but he claims that he hasn’t heard anything so far. He said that if he continued to be ignored, he would upload the entire journey as one video.

Shiey has created a back-up channel so viewers can still stay up to date with his content, to get around the strikes, and he is spreading the word in the comments on his main channel. He says he will be uploading every video that gets taken down by YouTube on the back-up.

Train surfing is illegal on most railways globally, not just because it involves skipping the fare, but because it is seriously life-threatening, whether that be from colliding with infrastructure, falling from a height, or getting electrocuted by a power supply.
