This wasn’t even that long ago, maybe May? Just a little bit before I left for the Philippines. When I think about her I can imagine us having full conversations like it was yesterday. I still can’t believe she’s gone, but there are so many good memories, and so much video footage of her that I can transport myself to her whenever I want. Grief is such a weird thing because one moment you’re so sad and you can’t stop crying, to the next when it doesn’t even feel real. I miss her a lot. #RIPGrandmaDemis

My grandparents were high school sweethearts. This is what he wrote in her yearbook:

Honey, (to my future wife)
To me you are the most wonderful girl living. You’re sweet, beautiful, and very lovely. I love you more than I can explain in words.
Lots of love,
Arnie (Loverboy)

GIF’s from Shane Dawson’s “13 & Pregnant”

Let’s do a little math shall we? Let’s pretend that Shane’s CPM is $3. That’s pretty low given he has over 10 million subscribers across his multiple channels, but we’re just guesstimating here. CPM stands for cost per millia and is how much Google Adsense pays content creators per thousand ad views. That means, at a $3 CPM, a million views would equal around $3,000. This video currently has over 9 million views, meaning Shane made somewhere around $27,000 for this incredible performance where he called his “best friend” a monkey and the n-word. No idea how much Shanna made from this monstrosity, but I can’t imagine it was worth it. But hey! YouTube fame right!? 

thefunkes said: what's your opinion on shane dawson's "apology" and his removal of the videos with black face?

Admittedly, I don’t watch his videos, so I never saw any apology. But that being said he never apologized for calling me a whore when I called out Shanna’s “Harriet Tubman Sex Tape Video” or favoriting tweets from his fans told me to kill myself and called me the n-word soooooo that “apology” doesn’t mean much to me.

Here’s the thing, blackface is only ONE of Shane’s many offenses, in addition to jokes about rape, pedophilia and using the n-word. Again, I don’t watch his videos, but I know he made under age sex jokes as recently as this year after numerous girls came forward to talk about sexual abuse in the YouTube community. And according to the LA Times, his new movie is full of rape jokes and other racist bits, so I doubt he’s learned anything or that his apology was genuine.
