During the most recent episode of his “Impaulsive” podcast, Logan Paul weighed in on the current drama surrounding Shane Dawson, and said he was “going through it” after being “canceled” online.
“When you’re getting canceled, and the weight of the world is on your shoulders, and everyone’s spitting on you and saying hurtful s**t … He’s going through it right now,” the 25-year-old said. “He’s going through it in a major way.”
As fans know, Logan’s commentary came just after Tati Westbrook posted a tell-all video claiming that Shane and Jeffree Star “coerced and manipulated” her into turning on fellow beauty vlogger James Charles. For those who missed it, back in May 2019, Tati shook the entire web when she posted a video called “Bye Sisters” where she accused James of lying, manipulating and being a disrespectful person, after he supported one of her rival vitamin companies.
Shane also has come under fire recently from Jaden Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith for “sexualizing” Willow Smith when she was 11 years old, and “doing blackface on the regular” in resurfaced clips of his old videos.
“Although Shane was younger when he did these things, he’s an adult now and there’s less room to grow,” Logan said, referring to the old videos. “I don’t know if people are as willing to listen to his change because they see what they see now and it’s hard to separate that.”
The influencer added, “This one is bad. I don’t know how much coming back there is from this.”
Throughout the podcast, Logan also explained why he’s interested in cancel culture as a whole.
“Coming from a dude who was canceled in a big way, probably one of the biggest ways ever, I am semi-invested into these stories about X, Y, Z getting canceled,” he said. “Because I’m curious what the cancel culture looks like, how people will bounce back, what they’re being canceled for, if it’s warranted, etc. I have my own opinions.”
Logan added, “I think it’s an immense definition of character what you do when you’re canceled. It’ll be interesting to see what Shane Dawson does next.”
