Longtime YouTube star Shane Dawson has successfully kicked off his second channel after a wave of success from his viral documentary series — but fans are concerned about his seemingly sporadic upload schedule.

Once known for his edgy humor and comedy sketches, Dawson is now hailed for his widely popular documentaries, covering controversial YouTubers like Jake Paul, Tana Mongeau, and even Jeffree Star.

However, the YouTube documentarian is now taking a new direction with his content, after creating a second channel called “Shane Glossin’” in January that went viral shortly after being made.

Shane Dawson is one of YouTube’s biggest stars, but it seems that mean comments are taking a toll on his upload schedule.

While it seemed like Dawson would be using his second channel to upload more frequently (with videos outside his usual documentary domain), some fans are questioning why he hasn’t been as active on the platform, which Dawson explained in a Tweet on February 19.

In his post, Dawson shared a screenshot of a comment from a disgruntled viewer, who complained that the YouTuber had gained wieght and was being “enabled” by those around him.

“I love Shane, but it’s a damn shame to watch him putting all this weight back on while everyone around him laughs and enables it,” the comment read.

According to Dawson, it’s comments like these that push him away from YouTube, which still sting despite his historic presence as a social media mogul.

“‘Hey Shane, why don’t you post more?’” he captioned the comment. “‘Why don’t you upload more?’ Well… this. You would think after 13 years on YouTube, comments wouldn’t get to me, but damn… they still feel like the very first time, haha.”

Thus far, the star has been met with support from fans and fellow creators alike, with even Yousef “Fouseytube” Erakat chiming in with his own wisdom on the subject.

“Go read my comments,” Fousey replied. “They make me want to not exist. I wish mine were as loving as even that one. With that being said, you look great. And as long as you’re happy, to hell with that opinion.”

It’s no secret that social media can be incredibly toxic, especially for influencers, with Shane’s honest Tweet marking yet another testament to the impact that hateful comments can have on users, no matter who they are.

Dr Disrespect responds to backlash after roasting mobile gaming

Legendary streamer Dr Disrespect responded to all the backlash he received after comparing his monstrous gaming setup to that of a mobile gamer’s.

On November 26, the Two-Time made waves on Twitter after he described his $200,000 multi-PC setup and sarcastically asked how people can take mobile gaming seriously.

Now, the back-to-back Blockbuster video game champion responded to everyone who was upset with him claiming mobile gaming wasn’t a serious thing.

In a comedic skit, Doc pretended to play a game on an old flip phone and was clearly struggling.

“Come on, peak. Oh, I would have killed you if I had a better connection. That’s bullsh*t,” he acted before realizing the camera was rolling, causing him to slowly flip his phone shut. “How long have we been live?”

While this opening segment was played for jokes, the theme carried on with Doc talking to ZLaner about the backlash he was receiving.

“I’m getting a lot of heat these days on Twitter. I just explained what my setup was in comparison to a mobile gaming setup,” he said. “I shouldn’t even say anything anymore.”

To this, ZLaner inquired about what exactly Doc had said and if he was implying that mobile gaming was a “laughing joke.”

“Again, I just explained what my setup was,” he doubled down. “And then with all that said, do I take someone playing on a phone seriously? I mean, it was just a question.”

Furthermore, when 100 Thieves star Rachell ‘Valkyrae’ Hofstetter tried to get Doc to participate in a big Among Us stream, he declined, saying it “looks worse than a mobile game.”

While the YouTube streamer may be downplaying his remarks a touch, phrasing them as “just a question,” it didn’t stop some prominent voices from speaking up.

As Dexerto reported, things reached a boiling point when CoD Mobile player Luke ‘iFerg’ Fergie challenged Doc to a $100,000 1v1.

Dr Disrespect has been seeing success on YouTube.

This wasn’t the only challenge issued either with Elijah ‘Hawksnest’ Jackson offering a $10,000 wager against the Two-Time.

Dr Disrespect didn’t respond to either of the two challenges issued. Either way, it seems like this feud with the mobile gaming community is far from over.
