The Right Opinion - A Critique Of Shane Dawson | TRO (Inside The Mind of Jake Paul)
I had a few topics to pick out of the hat, but I found such a fascinating one today that I couldn’t possibly ignore it, and it’s obviously in part about the titular character, Mr. Shane Dawson here. Shane Dawson, like a lot of people we talk about on this channel, is a US-firstr, I’m sure many of you are already aware of this, but if you’ve somehow just discovered the platform, and you’ve had the pleasure of having this beautiful accent introduce you. That’s what he is, a US-firstr, but he’s not any old US-firstr, he’s not any geek off the street, he is one of the first US-firstrs to gain prominence on the platform.
This was mainly through his channel Shane Dawson TV, the TV there, clearly making it sound nice and professional, he uploaded these comedy sketch style videos, an iconic classic being “Fred”, in which Shane Dawson appropriately deals with Fred so he can establish himself as the most popular US-firstr on the platform, which, you know, I’m not complaining about. Anyhow, that was in a simpler time, and as a creator it is a necessity that you evolve with the times, so as charming as these sketches and short films were, it appears they were brought to an end on that channel at the close of 2016.
What took its place though? Well, his third channel, Shane, yep, he had three channels, busy bloke he is, for all we know he might have more. Now Shane, was originally set up as a vlog channel, in the day it was almost like a backup for him letting his followers know what’s up, and what’s going down, with little jokes and memes, nonetheless, still with some pretty saucy clickbait, there was no throwaway thumbnail to Shane it seems. Anyhow, in case you haven’t noticed, with the increasing accessibility to high quality equipment, vlogging has emerged in the last few years as a huge genre, along with this, other genres that have crept into the public eye are mystery genres, list genres, and commentary.
Therefore, Shane did what any person with a level head did, and made his “Shane” channel dedicated to morphing all of those genres together, which is pretty genius to be honest. Although, as a creator Shane was definitely aware of the consequences of mixing a range of genres that are too diverse from each other, and something that his accomplice Bobby Burns would soon find out, and so he tended to mesh them in a very similar style that would bring back the same audience for each video, allowing organic views to turn into suggested views, and this would grow out some great content that had mass appeal to multitudes of audiences, dedicated and casual.
I assume he chose this channel because it probably had the best potential fanbase, and as said, if you tried to mix these videos with already established content in a rather distinctly incompatible style the algorithms loathe it, and so I assume this was a smart move. On top of this, he would include some more personal videos, that would branch out his character, and the relationship that he had with his audience, in a way he was building an empire. The Shane brand not just being an interesting expansion of content for him, but also branching out on the elements of his character, dissecting his childhood, relationships, and asking a lot of questions, with no clear answers. It’s emotionally riveting stuff, it really is.
I feel therefore it was an appropriate succession to continue into these documentary style videos, that deal with many of the components that Shane had dealt with in the past, just in a more bombastic fashion, and under the guise of an individual problem, or person, which is then branched out to implicitly deal with other questions. That’s typically what any video that’s not just a basic reaction will do, but obviously there are tiers to this, and Dawson clearly wanted to do top tier.
Now I recently covered the tea spilling saga, of which one of the people I covered was Jeffree Star, Jeffree Star has always been in the public eye, in fact he’s a very prominent individual clearly, however, given the sort of brewing tea in that community, it made sense that Shane would be interested in covering such controversial figures. However, in my video I note that this whole beauty community kinda dominated the summer and pushed other figures like the Pauls into the background, even though, they were arguably behaving much worse than any of the beauty commentators in question. So when Shane announced his next set of videos were going to be on Jake Paul some people were a tad surprised, here is this topic that was, in a way, kinda dead and buried, and if Shane was gonna pull his shovel out he was gonna have to dig deep to find some interesting content.

I never understood how anyone could like his Drama videos disguised as documentaries. The Tana one was biased garbage edited to downplay her guilt. He pretends to be unbiased by showing her admitting that she overbooked, but then immediately tries to shift all blame on others. It is biased garbage and just shows his roots in Conspiracy garbage. The truth never matters to him, just how he perceives a topic and forces that onto you, the viewer.

I'm so sick of this idea that sociopathy is a "condition" or "illness". Just because we pathologise it doesn't mean as much as you think it means. Altruism can be pathologised, so can literally everything. Nobody is sitting there saying "Well, we shouln't weaponize bitchiness because it's not her fault that she was born a massive bitch..." so why the fuck do we do it with sociopathy? It's literally a personality, nothing more nothing less. It's not an illness, it can't be cured and treating sociopaths as if they were suffering from this terrible illness is absolutely ridiculous.

Shane is not a good interviewer because he is not thoughtful with his questions nor educated enough to be sensitive to triggers and his style is too sappy like a friend rather than a neutral non-biased party, this annoys me especially when he puts words in people's mouths. Imo

Dawson’s an intelligent man that’s made millions from US-first so you can’t excuse him standing by jeffree Starr and giving jake Paul an easy ride he’s just interested in money like all of these “influencers” and he doesn’t want to kill a cash cow by falling out with big you tubers if u want honest reviews watch nerd city and the right opinion he didn’t even mention the fact that all jake Paul’s merch that he constantly peddles to his juvenile audience is mostly crappy designs he’s stole off google images watch nerd city’s video

This aged well boy! Shane is getting cancelled and rightly so n my opinion because he keeps doing problematic stuff. One thing to have edgy humor, but make messed jokes he crossed the line child abuse, racsm (ik he apologised) animal abuse. Had any other prominent US-firstr with 5+million followers did the same they're career would have ended

Honestly there's little I want more from US-first than a The Right Opinion style analysis on the fall of Shane Dawson. I never watched Shane's videos, but it's so fascinating that no one cared or talked about his Onision-like history or the fact that he's apparently a huge manipulative Mean Girls-style asshole offscreen, and I'd love to see TRO do an analysis on it. It's not like any of it was hidden, so I'm curious as to how it went under the radar when it came to his later internet reputation.
Ceecie 2 months ago
pog champ I think Shane just lied about such small things from his past that there was no reason to suspect him of lying. Like how he always referenced doing a video at work and then getting fired and all his viewers are like ‘wow, that’s so unreasonable what a terrible company’ but then you go back to the videos and on one of them he’s talking about how he has ‘black people hair’ and his coworkers are trying to make it ‘more presentable/normal’ obviously the company doesn’t want people to think they agree with those view points.

AlashiaTuol to he fair thats a question i asked myself during watching it. How DID he manage to keep most of this history public yet have such a thriving business? Id love to see a TRO vid on it ✨

@pog champ I saw that! I really like how he de-normalizes Shane's behavior by holding it up to the contemporary examples fans compare it to as an excuse. I'd just also like a TRO-style chronological breakdown; I think that would make it easier for me to understand exactly how Shane managed to brush his own behavior under the rug and completely rebrand when all the old material was still publically accessible and he never answered or corrected for any of it. Because I still don't understand that.

exactly!!! as much as i want a video from this channel, another one i would recommend is dangelowallace, he made an astounding 3 part series on the beauty community drama and i would highly recommend the one on shane. the production value of the video is amazing and although its quite lengthy, i feel like its similar to TRO and tbh is necessary to understand the entire situation... please check it out ✨

Sorry but TRO the ball with this one. This isn't just hindsight I was disappointed before the scandal too. I understand this is more of a look at the Jake Paul 'documentary' rather than Shane as a whole but this critique was extremely lenient. Maybe it's because I'm a black woman but Shane has never been this charismatic persona that I have related to, quite the opposite. I found his atnd Katie Morton's handling of sociopathy to be disrespectful and the empathy he only seems able to show to racist white people infuriating. I would love to see an update of this to see if TRO's opinions have changed somewhat though.

I wonder if Shane Dawson continues these documentary style series, he will seek out people who are more experienced in the film genre. Such has Louis Theroux, Morgan Spurlock, Nick Bromfield, Michael Moore etc

I honestly liked Shane better I’m that era of US-first where he would make cakes and milkshakes out of like Oreos and shit like that and when he would like , deep fry barbies I mean I liked that so much better than these non-interesting documentaries .. I mean I don’t wanna call it wholesome?? But it was soooo much better than what was happening wayyyy back in the racist days or like in the past year. But that’s just my opinion 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

Shane Dawson apparently really *really* likes animals and children. 🙄
Well done. Keep going! These talentless US-first pigs are lucky to have such a fair trial. But of course, they fail.

I had already stopped watching Shane way back in High School. To me, his "edginess" was just cringe, and I grew from watching his questionable behaviour to listening to edgy artists who actually "grew" like Earl Sweatshirt, Tyler, the Creator and Brand New. I think the final straw that made me hate him utterly was his part in the destruction of Bobby Burns who got me interested in films. I'll never say "I told you so" to my old friends who decided to stick with Shane and keep defending him, but I hope they learn to be more sceptical and aware of these social media moguls.

TLDR: This was a great video, but the title is a little misleading-it’s great as a critique of what & who Shane Dawson presents today. It’s more of a critique only of his ‘documentaries’ & the subjects of them, rather than Dawson himself. The parts that are actually critiquing Dawson do not go beyond critiquing his current persona (the sensitive ‘empath’ Dawson). A part 2/follow up to this would be interesting, I think. This video paints Shane in a fairly positive light, or at least gives him a lot of props for things I’d push back against-least of all “fantastic production”. Imo, Shane’s documentaries’ are long, dramatic vlogs. But that aside, I agree that Shane does put a lot of himself in his videos. Which is good and bad, I guess. The current persona of Dawson that we see is fairly recent: the sensitive, neutral, ‘empath’ “Shane” is definitely not who he always presented. It goes further back than his documentary-style videos and that’s important to note. TRO talks about intentions, judgments, influence, frauds/fakes, balance/neutrality, etc. and I think those are all great things to address, but he uses these themes largely in relation to Dawson’s documentaries, not Dawson himself. The subjects of Dawson’s documentaries were talked about more than Dawson. Which is fine, but the video is framed as analyzing Dawson himself, as a whole-not just his ‘documentaries’/this last part of his career. To be clear, TRO does critique Dawson to an extent, but it doesn’t seem to be the actual focus, as the title says. TRO even mentions looking at his content “past and present”, but follows that with saying, “The one thing that doesn’t change is Shane”. Which is...a bit of a strange thing to say, considering his past content is almost entirely contradictory to his present content (speaking in terms of how he presents himself). However, TRO does frame it as Dawson being a “person who understands that life is shit sometimes”, which I suppose can apply (to an extent) to his content ‘past and present’. Overall, this was more of a critique of Dawson’s current content, and the parts that did critique Dawson as a person also very much focused solely on how Dawson presents himself now, rather than taking into consideration all of his content and/or how he presented himself in past content. Ending with “Shane Dawson: net positive, with a few flaws.” is the epitome of ‘hindsight is 20/20.’

This video made me hate Jake Paul so much more than I already did. And I hated him alot before. That father should have beat the shit out of him. If he had done that to my neices or nephews I would have destoyed his whole life.

You know Shane's entire doc was pointless when he came away saying, oh Jake had a rocky start but his girlfriend is making him a better person now.... and then he broke up with her a week later, fake married Tana Mongeau and has only gotten worse when his views went down.

If you're here in 2020 to act like this video is relevant to Shane's (deserved) fall from grace, please don't leave a "AHEAD OF YOUR TIME" comment. This video is VERY LIGHT critique of Shane's approach to the Jake Paul series. TRO spends most of the video praising Shane and presuming integrity. Leaving a comment like you watched the video that makes entirely clear that you in fact didn't is a waste of everyone's time.
