Jaden Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith are upset with Shane Dawson for a video, in which he sexualizes an 11-year-old Willow Smith.
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.

As the clip made it’s rounds along with many others of Dawson using the “n-word,” as well as being in blackface, Dawson attempted to apologize for the clips, 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.
