Jaden & Jada Pinkett-Smith React To Shane Dawson’s Disturbing Willow Smith Video
Jaden Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith have called out YouTuber Shane Dawson for a video that shows Dawson appearing to masturbate to a picture of 11-year-old Willow Smith. The clip resurfaced earlier this week.
“To Shane Dawson … I’m done with the excuses,” Pinkett-Smith wrote on Twitter.
“SHANE DAWSON I AM DISGUSTED BY YOU. YOU SEXUALIZING AN 11-YEAR-OLD GIRL WHO HAPPENS TO BE MY SISTER!!!!!! IS THE FURTHEST THING FROM FUNNY AND NOT OKAY IN THE SLIGHTEST BIT,” Willow’s brother, Jaden, added.
Dawson apologized for the clip, Friday, in a video titled “Taking Accountability.”
“I have done a lot of things in my past that I hate, that I wish I could make go away, that I tried to make go away by deleting videos, or un-tagging my Instagram, literally doing whatever I can to pretend those things didn’t happen,” he said. “Because yes, I apologized for a lot of them but I’m 31, almost 32. Those apologies suck. I don’t know who that person is anymore … This video is coming from a place of just wanting to own up to my shit.
“I’m so sorry. I’m sorry I added to the normalization of blackface or the normalization of saying the n-word … It’s not a funny word, especially for a white person to say. Me, as a white person, wearing a wig and playing a character and doing stereotypes and then saying the n-word is something that I should have probably lost my career for at the time, and there’s no amount of apologizing that can take it away … I was just another white guy who can get away with anything,” he added.
