Pop Blast's channel was finally removed from YouTube after a series of unfounded and incorrect allegations made against one of the original YouTube stars, Shane Dawson, calling him a pedophile.

The video then switches to talking about Dawson various other minor girls, including a href="https://heavy.com/news/2017/02/cash-me-outside-danielle-bregoli-age-mom-dad/" target="_blank" rel="noopener" Danielle Bregoli /a aka Cash Me Outside.

Dawson is a YouTube veteran, having run channels on the website since 2008.

"And she shows me her Instagrams which are like-first of all- I don't know if I'm allowed to say this but, like, she's, like, sexy", Dawson said. "I am NOT a f***ing pedophile", he yelled in a response video where he slammed everyone for taking his soundbites out of context. "I just wanted to see, let me pretend I'm a paedophile for a second". He also offered his "justification of pedophilia", which compares it to other "weird, creepy" fetishes that aren't illegal. "People have fetishes about everything". Fine, everybody do your thing... So why is it when somebody looks at, Googles, like "naked baby" on Google and jerks off to it they can get arrested? "But it was sexy".

"Here's what I'm going to do".

He continued, "Here's the worst part of it, I actually went to Google... Got it? Great. There's my statement".

"It's disgusting people are saying that based on some s***** a** jokes from four years ago on a podcast".

He went on to explain that he used to make jokes that he knew would shock people because he wasn't confident enough "to make smarter jokes". "Back in the day, like 2012, that was my thing". "I can not believe that this is happening. I'm proud that I don't make insane jokes anymore".

The YouTuber has previously caused controversy by using blackface in a number of his videos, playing characters of Wendy Williams and Chris Brown. I was doing s-t that was homophobic. I'm proud that I've grown up.

I have changed so much as a person and as a creative and as a director and a writer.

"I've changed so much as a person, the stuff I was saying back in those times, I would not say now, never, I don't think it's amusing". "Listening to that clip just now, I didn't laugh; I didn't think it was amusing".

Dawson also said that he had previously been molested, which made him "passionate about shedding light" on real pedophilia and abuse.

This should be a lesson to all up and coming YouTubers that things you do and say to shock people can come back to haunt you years later once you break big. "I'm kidding", he laughed. "Listening to that f-ks me up".
