  • Jaden Smith says he’s “disgusted” by YouTuber Shane Dawson for sexualizing his sister, Willow, at just 11 years old.

  • Jada Pinkett Smith tweeted that she’s “done” with Shane’s excuses.

Jaden Smith has released a public statement against YouTuber Shane Dawson for sexualizing his sister, Willow Smith. According to People, Jaden’s comments came after a clip of Shane resurfaced featuring him seemingly masturbating to a poster of Willow, who was just 11 at the time. In other words, she was a literal child. There are truly not enough words to express how wrong, f*cked up, and deeply disturbing this is.

“SHANE DAWSON I AM DISGUSTED BY YOU. YOU SEXUALIZING AN 11-YEAR-OLD GIRL WHO HAPPENS TO BE MY SISTER!!!!!!” Jaden tweeted over the weekend. “IS THE FURTHEST THING FROM FUNNY AND NOT OKAY IN THE SLIGHTEST BIT.”

He 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.”

Meanwhile, Jaden and Willow’s mom, Jada, tweeted, “To Shane Dawson…I’m done with the excuses.”

The tweets came after Shane released a YouTube video called “Taking Accountability,” where, per People, he apologized for his frequent use of blackface and inappropriate content about kids—but didn’t mention the resurfaced video featuring Willow. “I swear on my life, I am not somebody who would ever talk about a child, like in seriousness, I would never talk about a child in any way that is inappropriate,” he said. “That is disgusting, that is gross, it is not something I would ever do. It is something I did for shock value or because I thought it was funny or like, ‘Oh my god, my child molester character,’ or whatever.”

At this point, Shane hasn’t addressed Jaden’s and Jada’s tweets.
