'Shane Dawson is over party' is trending on Twitter and here's why

Following the finale of his 'The Mind of Jake Paul' documentary, some fans have decided to 'cancel' Shane Dawson.
After last night's episode of the documentary about the contentious YouTuber and Team 10 member, Jake Paul, fans started trending '#ShaneDawsonIsOverParty' after Shane failed to call him out on any of his previous racist language and behaviour. In the episode, Shane and Jake mainly chatted about Jake's controversies. And that's the problem - nothing was addressed. As close as Shane got to addressing Jake's racist comments was asking what happened with the Martinez twins, and even then, Shane appeared to excuse Jake's behaviour. Jake got more stick from Shane for being rude about teachers than for using racial slurs.
Clearly, this didn't sit well with viewers, who felt that Shane should have done a better job.
You put all this work and energy and went through all these “sleepless nights” to give a racist piece of shit like Jake Paul a platform. I have no sympathy for you.... #ShaneDawsonIsOverParty https://t.co/7OceE8ixQQ— 🥀 𝐓𝐖𝐈Π𝐊 𝐒𝐈𝐕Δ𝐍 🥀 (@jaeclipze) October 19, 2018
Then, it all got a whole lot worse when a fan called out Shane for giving Jake Paul a platform even though he's racist, and Shane told them to fuck off. Shane also liked tweets saying this fan deserved the hate they were getting for calling him out. His excuse was that he's released all this content for free and spent so long editing it, and that he was trying to help Jake, not just berate him.
Again, people were not here for it.

Shane is trash... That's why he deleted his tweets because he knew he was wrong.. I wish you stans would stop defending everything. He is 30 not a baby
Despite all the backlash of the #ShaneDawsonIsOverParty, some fans have defended Shane.

Following the finale of the dramatic documentary, and his fair share of backlash, Shane has announced that he is taking some time off from YouTube for a while anyway, so who knows when we'll next see him.
Do you think people are being too harsh? Or do you think Shane needs to be called out on the aspects of Jake's life he skimmed over? Let us know.
