Why #ShaneDawsonIsOverParty Is Trending Again

YouTuber Shane Dawson has been a controversial figure on the internet for some time now. And over the weekend, the hashtag #ShaneDawsonIsOverParty has once again been resurrected.

Twitter has called attention to Dawson's old Blackface videos, and user @chaoticgaythey also posted screenshots from the vlogger's Wikipedia page, indicating that he's used the n-word before. Dawson also previously joked about "ghetto pranks" on stage at VidCon.

Dawson has formally apologized for his Blackface content before, and he currently maintains a following of over 23 million subscribers.

And while the hashtag has picked up a lot of traffic, many people are using it as an example to point out how cancel culture isn't effective at all.
