YouTuber Shane Dawson is following up his September pig-shaped handbag launch with a range of slime. You read that right: slime. Pre-made, super stretchy and with a root beer scent. Delightful!
We’d love to say this range comes as a surprise, but really anything’s possible when it comes to one of the world’s most controversial YouTube stars.
For those living under a rock, 2020 has got to have been the worst professional year of Shane Dawson’s life. It all kicked off in June, when old clips of the beauty YouTuber using blackface, spouting various offensive words against POCs and joking about paedophilia resurfaced.
After that, we barely heard a peep out of Shane for months, until he decided to quietly release a range of pig-shaped handbags, available on his merch site. (Get across what else Shane Dawson was up to in that time here.)
“You’re really going to come out with slime when you’ve had issues related to allegations with children?” Zach says in the clip. “For me, that’s a questionable decision.”
Later, Zach again stresses: “Who’s the demographic for slime? It’s children. I don’t think this is the best look for somebody who was accused of being inappropriate with people underage.”
Zach also points out the cost of the slime, USD $12, is quite the pretty penny for slime. “Why would I want to spend $12 on designer slime?” he asks.
Zach claims from his research that Shane has long since been obsessed with slime. He teased his own version of it nearly a year ago, so it’s likely that a slime range was in the works before all the controversies of this year.
We still have no clue how those pig-shaped handbags from September sold, and likely we’ll be kept in the dark about the slime’s success rate too. As always, we’ll do our utmost to keep you across.
