Jaden Smith slams Shane Dawson for ‘sexualising his sister Willow when she was 11’
Actor Will Smith’s son Jaden Smith has publicly slammed YouTube star Shane Dawson after a video resurfaced of him acting inappropriately in front of a poster of Jaden’s sister Willow.
Jaden called out the 31-year-old after the video began recirculating online.
In the video which was filmed and uploaded to his YouTube channel years ago, which currently has 22.8 million subscribers, Dawson can be seen appearing to pretend to masturbate in front of a poster of Willow, Jaden claims she was 11-years-old at the time.
Fans took to Twitter to call out Dawson, with many fans claiming the YouTube documentary creator was 18-years-old when he set the video live.
In the resurfaced video, Dawson makes references to Willow’s hit song, Whip My Hair.
The siblings’ mum was the first to jump in and take to her own official Twitter account to call out the shamed star.
Tweeting to her 1.4 million followers, Jada wrote: “To Shane Dawson … I’m done with the excuses.”
Not long after, Willow’s older brother Jaden took to his account to tweet about the incident to his 8 million followers.
Revealing he is “disgusted”, he wrote: “You sexualising an 11-year-old girl who happens to be my sister is the furthest thing from funny and not OK in the slightest bit. This man was also doing blackface on the regular,” before he then urged young people to “support creators who support us and our morals”.
Referring again to Dawson’s behaviour, he said: “This is not okay.”
