Shane Dawson is a massively popular face on YouTube, having been a top content creator on the site for years – but his recent documentary series have skyrocketed him to fame once again, and he’s finally dropped a teaser for his next release.

After months of waiting, fans are finally able to get a glimpse into Dawson’s next big project, which previously went under the title, “The Ugly Side of the Beauty World.”


Teased for a fall release, both Dawson and makeup mogul Jeffree Star have been working on the series for an extended period of time, after Dawson’s conspiracy series took a sudden turn – but now, the fruits of their labor are nearly ready.

Dawson dropped a trailer for the newly-named “Beautiful World of Jeffree Star” on September 24, featuring an original song from artist Cartie Turner called “Prom Queen,” which she described as a song about when “you don’t feel like a winner.”


The trailer features both Jeffree Star and Dawson in various scenarios, from waving at masses of cheering fans to having heated discussions in a meeting room, as well as Dawson watching Tati Westbrook’s viral video calling out YouTuber James Charles.

That’s not all: the trailer even features Dawson’s proposal to fiance Ryland Adams, as well as the hashtag “#ShaneDawsonIsOverParty” and clips of both Dawson and Star shedding a few tears.

In what was originally named “The Ugly Side of the Beauty World,” it seems that Dawson’s upcoming series will feature both the “beautiful” and the “ugly” sides of YouTube’s beauty community, likely discussing the drama around James Charles and the controversy surrounding Dawson’s past podcasts.

With Dawson having teased a conspiracy series prior to his latest trailer, he Tweeted that his beauty series will likewise deal with “conspiracies” of some sort – although fans will have to wait for the big reveal on October 1.


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.
