Jada Pinkett Smith and her son Jaden are not happy with YouTube star Shane Dawson.
After a video resurfaced of Dawson pretending to masturbate to a poster of a then 11-year-old Willow Smith while saying the lyrics to her song “Whip My Hair,” the duo took to Twitter on Saturday to call out the YouTuber.
Getting straight to the point, Jada tweeted, “To Shane Dawson … I’m done with the excuses.”
Meanwhile, Jaden dished out a more lengthy response showing his vehement distaste for 31-year-old comedian.
“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,” he wrote.
In a following tweet the 21-year-old rapper added, “This Man Was Also Doing Black Face On The Regular. As The Youth We Need To Support Creators Who Support Us And Our Morals. This Is Not Okay.”
The tweets come the same day that Dawson released a 20-minute video titled, “Taking Accountability,” in which he apologizes for some of his past problematic content.
According to People, he apologized for using the N-word, doing blackface, and for making “inappropriate” comments about children, though he makes no mention of Willow by name.
This isn’t the only YouTube star to come under fire for past content deemed controversial. Last week, YouTube celebrity Jenna Marbles quit the platform and took accountability for posting content she deemed “shameful.”
