A disturbing video of popular YouTuber Shane Dawson recently surfaced online where he was seen 'sexualising' Will Smith's then 11-year-old daughter Willow Smith. The video which has surfaced online showed Shane looking at an 11-year-old Willow on a Disney poster while appearing to pretend to masturbate. After the video resurfaced online and received immense flak for the YouTuber, Shane released a video apologising to everyone where he also revealed that he put on a blackface several times in the past and apologised for not realising the gravity of his actions then. Reacting to the same, Will Smith's wife, Jada Pinkett Smith and son Jaden Smith slammed the YouTuber online.

Neither Will Smith nor Willow Smith have reacted to the following though netizens were surely left angered with Shane's revelations and his old offensive videos have now resurfaced on social media. In his apology video, he said, "‘I made a video six years ago talking about it and I gave excuses, I knew it was wrong, I knew I never wanted to do it again, but I didn’t do the work. I didn’t actually look into the history of it and why it’s so wrong, and why people were so upset."
