Popular YouTuber Shane Dawson may have let slip the premise for his next documentary series – and it could have something to do with extraterrestrials.

Dawson may be making the move from YouTube celebrities to full-blown conspiracy theories, as he Tweeted a possible idea for his next series that included a trailer from TIME’s investigation into alleged UFO sightings by three Irish commercial pilots.


“I think I just found my next series,” Dawson wrote. “Aliens… please make contact and then come talk to me on my couch? “

This Tweet follows Dawson’s hint at yet another installment to his eight-part series over controversial YouTuber Jake Paul, who recently went public about his breakup with fellow YouTuber Erika Costell on November 7. Dawson responded to the news with a Tweet that jokingly teased another episode covering their split, although no confirmation for this project has yet been confirmed.


Dawson also expressed an interest in creating a series around Canadian singer-songwriter Justin Bieber; while the Biebs has yet to respond to Dawson’s request, it seems as though the YouTuber is wasting no time on other potential prospects.


Although Dawson has been outspoken on possibilities for his next projects, those enterprises may have to wait, as multiple fires currently blaze across his resident state of California. He has since evacuated his home with partner Ryland Adams and their animals and continues to Tweet out resources for the benefit of other residents, as well.


Dawson isn’t the only YouTuber to have evacuated – Jake Paul likewise took refuge in brother Logan Paul’s house, later confirming that the Team 10 mansion will likely escape the fires.


Hashinshin claims FBI cleared him of sexual harassment allegations

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.


Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.


“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.


“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”


Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.


“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
