POKIMANE CLAIMS SHANE DAWSON’S RETURN TO YOUTUBE IS “DISINGENUOUS”

WHAT HAPPENED?

Twitch star Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys broke down why she thinks Shane Dawson’s return to YouTube is problematic.

The OfflineTV streamer was critical of his apology and take on being “canceled.”

Like, if you really care about something, like, ‘hey I want to come back. I want to seriously apologize and I want people to know how aware I am of the sh**ty things that I did’… When someone’s serious they look like they feel bad, they say at lengths what they did wrong. That’s how you really do it.

Whereas if someone is like, “Sorry you feel that way. If you hate me you’re gonna hate me, and omg my cat’s so cute!” If someone apologized like that, you would be like, ‘What?!’… It just wouldn’t feel right.

The streamer also wasn’t buying Shane Dawson’s explanation for taking a hiatus from YouTube.

All the things he listed, none of them were like, “I felt bad about what I’ve done. And like I wanted to give people time and space.” People need time to get over, and you need to showcase you’ve changed.

The streamer reiterated that Dawson’s lack of a straightforward apology made him come off not genuine.
