YouTube star Shane Dawson has apologised for "repulsive" comments he made about paedophilia which have resurfaced online.
YouTube star Shane Dawson, pictured here at the Starz television series "The Chair" during the 2014 TCA press tour, recently issued a video apology to his fans.
In the outrageous original podcast Dawson talks about meeting a six-year-old girl with over 100,000 Instagram followers.
Dawson goes on to apologise for the jokes he made in the past, saying he was playing a character and would go for laughs by trying to shock people. And she said "Oh I'm a cheerleader" Oh really? And she shows me her Instagram. First of all I don't know why anybody would be turned on by that...but they were sexy... And there's websites on the internet where they can look at that weird creepy shit and jerk off to it. "I don't understand that".
'Here's the worst part of it, I actually went to Google... "I just wanted to see, let me pretend I'm a pedophile for a second", he said.
"So I typed in "naked baby". But, they were sexy.

YouTube star Shane Dawson is getting dragged hard for a podcast where joked about googling naked babies and calling a little girl 'sexy.' We've got the details.
The accusations against Shane went viral on social media, and the YouTuber had to release a video statement to clear his name.
The 29-year-old YouTube personality has been accused of being a paedophile by a compilation video on Pop Blast, which pulls audio from Dawson's podcast Shane And Friends from four years ago.
"I loved the feeling of making somebody shocked and laugh because they couldn't believe what was coming out of my mouth", he continues. I apologized countless times for my s--ty offensive jokes.
"I was playing insane stereotypical characters". I was doing s-t that was racially insensitive, homophobic, fat-shaming. I have changed so much as a person; as a creative, and as a writer, and as a director.
"I am going to start by saying I am not a fucking pedophile. Listening to that clip just now, I didn't laugh; I didn't think it was amusing".
