YouTube have taken action against the Channel that called Shane Dawson a pedophile.

YouTuber Shane Dawson was forced to release a statement to deny accusations of being a pedophile yesterday after a YouTube Channel, which has since been taken down, accused the online star of pedophilia.

The offending YouTube Channel posted a video that consisted of a montage of old audio clips from Shane’s “Shane And Friends” podcast – In the video you could hear him calling a six-year-old ‘sexy’ and admitting to ‘googling naked babies.’

The accusations against Shane went viral on social media, and the YouTuber had to release a video statement to clear his name.

The conspiracy that Shane was ‘a pedophile’ was quickly debunked and YouTube has taken action against the Channel.

The offending Channel was verified and under the name ‘PopBlast’ – It has now been terminated. If you try and access the Channel, a message appears instead, it reads: “This account has been terminated due to multiple or severe violations of YouTube’s policy against spam, deceptive practices and misleading content or other Terms of Service violations.”

Shane tweeted the following hours after the accusations took place: “I grew up. I changed my content. I apologized countless times for my shitty offensive jokes. instead of dragging me down people should use me as an example of a creator who can CHANGE and better themselves and their content. i’m so proud of who i am today.”
