Shane Dawson and Jake Paul
This may be long but oh well. I see so many people sharing their opinions on Shane, his attitude, what he creates and his past. I see people talking about Jake, Logan, Alissa and their pasts. This is my take on it,
1. The Jake Paul series made me realize a couple of things, one being that Jake is just a child, he’s my age. I could never imagine how fucked up I would be if I had his life, but, that is still no excuse. It humanized him, made me understand him and I understand his mistakes, I believe he can be a better person now and I really hope, for his sake and his fans’ sake, that he’ll grow and become better.
2. There are so many sides to every story, and different tellings of the stories. I think both Alissa and Jake were being truthful, they were telling their perspectives of the truth. You can believe one and not the other, of course, people are going to take sides. However, I think they were both in the wrong, but not as much as Logan was. Logan is the oldest out of all three, he should have had enough sense of right and wrong to not hurt his brother, to not hurt Alissa and to not put business over personal relationships.
3. Shane gets a ridiculous amount of hate for his series. He got so much during his Jeffree Star series, and honestly, his Jeffree series made me respect Jeffree again. Once again, I saw Jeffree as a human being rather that a character on the internet. He got even more hate because of his Jake series, mostly because it involved Jake. I don’t want to get too into detail about this, but what I will say is: if you don’t like what he posts, says, does, believes or anything of the sort. If you just don’t like Shane, no one is forcing you to watch his stuff. If you’re going to be an asshole to anyone, they have a right to defend themselves. Even famous people have a right to defend themselves. You would do the same thing, so don’t act like a fucking victim!
4. In conclusion, I don’t like Jake because of the series, I’ll never be into his videos or whatever, but I don’t hate him like I once did. I do think Shane needs to get off of the internet for awhile, allow himself to rest and cope. He is definitely an empath and that within itself is exhausting. People need to stop thinking that they can be rude to a celebrity just because they are not humanized like “normal” people. You don’t have to agree with everything they do, but if you do something against them, they have a right to do something back. Everyone gets upset. It;s normal.
