Shane Dawson apologizes for sociopath comments during the ‘Dark Side of Jake Paul’ part two.

Shane was attacked on social media for demonizing mental illness and he has now apologized for it.

Shane knew that the docuseries would stir some controversy but, didn’t expect the backlash after viewers accused him of handling the issue of mental health in an insensitive way.

As you guys have seen in part two, Shane sat with clinical therapist and Youtuber Kati Morton to discuss what defines a sociopath.
She described sociopaths as a QUOTE, “a rollercoaster” and the video cuts to scenes from the Paul brothers’ videos. They then went on to describe sociopaths as emotionless…

While Dawson and Morton did say things like, “not saying that he’s a socio path” over and over, fans were still outraged at their approach discussing mental illness.

Fans took to twitter to express their disappointment. One wrote, “the way shane dawson talked about mental illness in his most recent video is gross”
Followed by,
“this video has made me so unbelievably angry. She’s really giving every single viewer trust issues when it comes to the people in their lives and demonizing others who are in fact mentally ill. These characteristics don’t serve to create-
-these qualities that can be seen in tons of people seem even MORE general and by doing so creates MORE fear. Yes, sociopaths can be awful people, but they are not all awful people in the way she is framing them. This shit is so harmful and disgusting, I’m fuming”.

Shane took to Twitter to post a long disclaimer, reminding people that this video was made for entertainment and then apologized writing QUOTE, “i understand why people are upset. i definetly went overboard with the horror movie editing but that’s cause i got excited & love editing horror. but i’m going to be more sensitive with the editing going forward. the last thing i want it to hurt anyone. :(its never my intention.”

  1. OH mother of Christ, do they not realise that the people he is supposedly ‘demonizing’ literally do not have the mental function to care about it? He was asking valid questions and she was reading the symptoms out of an official psychology book. Get a damn grip idiots.

  2. As someone who suffers from mental illness and sociopathic tendencies… did not find his video in the slightest bit offensive. I don’t even think it’s necessarily wrong to call out sociopaths as what they do and how they treat people is wrong… yes it’s not strictly their fault, but it doesn’t make it right!
