Shane Dawson is not apologizing this time around.
The YouTuber, 31, went on Instagram Live to express his shock and disgust to his more than 11 million followers as he watched former friend Tati Westbrook’s latest video.
In the clip, Westbrook blames Dawson and fellow beauty guru Jeffree Star for manipulating her into turning against James Charles and posting a video exposing him for shady business deals and uncouth sexual advances.
“This is insane,” Dawson said repeatedly. He also asserted that Westbrook messaged so-called “drama channels” in advance of her previous videos in order to get as much attention as possible. “You are so manipulative! You are fake crying. That is not real,” he said.
His fiancé, Ryland Adams, went on a Twitter rant in Shane’s defense. “Tati Westbrook – a master class in manipulation. The only was [sic] to save her reputation was to side with the person she tried to ruin. Make no mistake. This 40 year old woman choose to post a video on her own accord,” he tweeted. He also called Westbrook a “two-faced liar.”
