    The scandal around the popular blogger began after a recording of a 2015 podcast with him surfaced, where he describes his most unusual "sexual experience". Although Dawson vowed to never apologise for the "dumb jokes" that he made in the past, he still took to Twitter to prove his innocence.

    Popular YouTube blogger Shane Dawson caused a Twitterquake with a recent series of posts where he tried to debunk a persisting rumour based on a podcast made in 2015, where he said that once he "came all over [his] cat". He claimed that the story was "a dumb awful sketch idea" that he used as a joke in the podcast, but which was entirely untrue.

    Despite his attempts to be persuasive, many Twitterians were left unconvinced and continued to explicitly suggest that he has a sexual interest in his furry pets.

    Numerous netizens laughed at the whole "I didn't f**k my cat" comment, noting that when taken out of context, it sounds hilarious…

    …and shocking.

    One social media user said that Dawson's tweets had "broken" Twitter.

    The joke even seemed to have started a wave of "Shane Dawson's cat accounts" appearing on the social media platform to further spread hype surrounding the YouTuber's confession.

    Some Twitterians, though, were disappointed by Dawson being targeted for over-the-top jokes he made in the past, complaining that it has become hard to make a joke on internet without insulting someone.
