After his docu-series with Jake Paul, Shane wants to take a break from making videos.
YouTuber/ documentary maker/ director/ musician Shane Dawson has announced he will be taking a break from YouTube once his Jake Paul documentary series.
While the videos have been wildly successful, it's been fraught with difficulties. He received backlash for announcing he was going to make a documentary about Team 10 member Jake Paul. People weren't ready to feel sorry for such a controversial guy. (This all changed last week anyway). He was also criticised for the way he handled mental health, and his treatment of sociopaths.
This week, Shane got a lot of stick from people on Twitter after he said he was delaying episode 6 of the documentary by one day due to a bladder infection.
I’m so happy u guys liked yesterday’s video! We worked really hard on it :,) We are still trying for part 6 tomorrow but my bladder infection put me back a little and i couldn’t edit yesterday. but we are going full force today! worst case scenario it will be up thursday 😓 pic.twitter.com/Rkgb1ORHHi— Shane Dawson (@shanedawson) October 9, 2018
What a monster!
Twitter was not happy, but then Shane revealed the true extent of discomfort he is in.
i’ve been releasing 2 hours of content a week and i’ve been making it with one person. i feel like i’m allowed to take an extra day or even an extra few days if i need it when my dick is bleeding. https://t.co/LJgsetptQG— Shane Dawson (@shanedawson) October 10, 2018
Turns out, the reason he is delaying posting the video because his bladder infection is worse than most people presumed. His is literally peeing blood. I bet you all feel bad for complaining now!!!! Well, strap in, because you'll feel worse when you read this next bit:
next time i’m going to just take more time and not care about the “why aren’t u posting” and “ur lazy” tweets. i probably won’t be uploading for a few months after this series is over. 😓 https://t.co/WplXjKVfzM— Shane Dawson (@shanedawson) October 10, 2018
Yes. You read that correctly. Shane is taking a break from YouTube for a few months after his Jake Paul series is done.
After all the backlash and drama that's surrounded this documentary, can you really blame him? People then decided to send Shane well wishes, probably hoping to undo the damage they just did.
You’ve kept relevant on YouTube SINCE IT BEGAN and you are still on top of your game, even now more than ever! Some people don’t understand the effort that goes into making content, keep setting the bar higher and higher sis ❤️— Trent Owers (@trentowers) October 10, 2018
LOOK WHAT YALL DID. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; Shane has been putting out amazing content for you for FREE, and you bash him bc it’s not out when you want it to be? Take a seat please. pic.twitter.com/8fMqsfHOY4— raini (@raini_days) October 10, 2018
