"If u really think i proposed because of that ur crazy."

Shane Dawson revealed he'd proposed to his boyfriend of three years Ryland Adams and everyone was SO happy for them. The YouTuber shared some adorable photos of the moment he popped the question, calling it "the best night of his life". Aww.

Shane Dawson and Ryland Adams just got engaged with the most adorable proposal

Shane was congratulated by his fans and YouTube BFFs Jeffree Star, James Charles and Trisha Paytas, who sent supportive tweets to the happy couple.

However, Shane and Ryland's engagement came just days after Shane had to deny rumours he'd sexually abused his cat. Earlier this week, a podcast from 2015 surfaced and on it Shane joked about dry humping and ejaculating on his cat.

Shane denied he'd ever had sex with his cat and posted a lengthy apology.

However, some people are questioning the timing of the engagement and believe it's merely a cover up to divert attention from the whole cat controversy.

Of course, Shane fans know the real tea.

Shane confirmed the proposal date was clearly already set before this viral cat scandal broke because he proposed on the anniversary of their first date. He tweeted: "if u really think i proposed because of that ur crazy. it’s our 3 year anniversary and i’ve been planning this for a long time.

"i don’t give THAT much power to people on twitter trying to cancel me for the THOUSANDth time."
