Sure, some of his content was made in poor taste and judgement. That's the beauty of the Internet, you won't enjoy everyone or their content. Shane had countless viewers who always appreciated his effort and passion for content creation. He constantly admits to his faults and says that he regrets all of those choices. He IS a prisoner of his past- whether you like to admit it or not. He's living in a time loop where Twitter and the Internet rediscover his mistakes and berate/bully him for it. It's clear he has the ability to admit to his mistakes and regrets them. He's not some evil person everyone made him out to be. He keeps apologizing over and over again. When will the Internet be satisfied?
Not all mistakes are created equal, though. There's a VERY big difference between making shitty, hurtful jokes and using racial slurs, joking about molesting children, and asking your underage fans on tinychat to show you their best "o-faces." Shane hasn't just been tasteless, he has been actively racist and predatory towards fans, and to make matters worse, he continues to profit off of his disgusting behavior. If he was truly apologetic about his past, why is he still selling Shanaynay t shirts? Why did he partner up with Jeffree Stahmer (another known racist) to paint them both sympathetically in overproduced vlogs AND shill a makeup/merch collection that made millions of dollars?
There are plenty of online personalities/comedians with a self-deprecating sense of humor and ~relatable~ personalities. I promise you don't have to hold on to Shane.
Everything he did was in a joking light-hearted way, although they may not have been tasteful. He isn't still selling Shanaynay shirts, where did you see that? I think Jeffree is very charismatic and manipulative in a way, Shane got wrapped up in it. I really have not found a creator even slightly similar to Shane, that's why he still has so many fans and viewers. You can't duplicate certain creators, people like him and Jenna Marbles are one of a kind.
yes jeffree is manipulative, but so is shane. he is a grown ass man for fucks sake. at what point does personal accountability starts applying to him too?? because I remember he was way too eager to take down 19-year-old james charles but somehow dear shane who is already over 30 and cant even bother to take a shower a day in his million dollar house is always the victim of someone else's manipulations and wrongdoings.
he's not "joking", he's an awful person who manages to avoid all responsibility because his supporters are fucked up individuals too who make the same type of "jokes" and only apologize after being called out, so of course you relate to whatever he does and you think he's always joking and making silly mistakes. it's very clear at this point that you'll excuse whatever he does. ask yourself why is that.
he's been on the internet for more than a decade and has fucked up many, many, many times. the only reason why he constantly gravitates around evil people and feels the need to justify their actions and make "documentaries" to make them seem less fucked up is because he's just like them too.
and no, he's not on the same level as jenna marbles. never has been and never will be.
