While popular YouTuber Shane Dawson has made a home for himself on the video platform for some time, his documentary series have pushed him to the height of fame in recent years – and now, he’s spilling the beans about his upcoming project.

Dawson began his documentary series drive by detailing the lives of controversial YouTubers, including such names as Tana Mongeau, Jake Paul, and even Jeffree Star – a massively popular makeup mogul who will be making yet another appearance in Dawson’s next series.

Dawson uploaded a Tweet on June 30 finally admitting the premise and date for his forthcoming project, which he called, “The Ugly Side of the Beauty World.”

“Ugly Side of the Beauty World series in the fall and possibly something else in July,” he wrote in reply to a fan. “Some stuff happened that threw a wrench in the conspiracy series, but I’ll explain soon. But the series in the fall is A LOT… so trust me, you’ll be sick of me by the end of the year.”

Although Dawson didn’t exactly let slip what the series might be about, he has previously mentioned that he is working closely with Star for the project (which, considering its title, could very well discuss the drama between beauty YouTubers James Charles and Tati  Westbrook in May).

That’s not all: Dawson claimed that his previously teased conspiracy theory video would be incorporated into his Beauty series, which he’d previewed with a series of photos in early June.

Dawson uploaded four photos to Twitter on June 8, which showed an apparent video setup in a hotel room and a snapshot of his face on the camera’s viewfinder.

Although he didn’t make any mention of what the proposed conspiracy was about, it looks like fans won’t be seeing a full-fledged series for the theory, as was previously thought.

“…the main theory will now be incorporated into the beauty series, and it just makes more sense to do that,” he explained. “But I’ll explain more soon.”

Despite these drawbacks, fans are more than excited for Dawson’s upcoming collaboration with Star for yet another documentary, following his ‘Conspiracies with Shane Dawson’ double-video uploads in late January.

Dawson’s documentary series earned him widespread acclaim across the YouTube space, even seeing him earn a Shorty Award in early May for his efforts – and with all the hype surrounding his current endeavors, his next project is shaping up to be another smash hit.

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.
