Jada Pinkett Smith and son Jaden slam YouTuber Shane Dawson for 'sexualising' Willow when she was a child

Jaden Smith and his mother Jada Pinkett Smith have slammed YouTuber Shane Dawson after a resurfaced clip allegedly showed him pretending to masturbate to a poster of Willow Smith when she was a child. 

The pair came out swinging in defence of Willow on Twitter, where Jaden accused Shane of "sexualising an 11-year-old girl", dubbing him "disgusting". 

Jaden said the video was "the furthest thing from funny and not okay in the slightest bit" while Jada said she was "done with the excuses". 

The tweets came after Shane released a video titled 'Taking Accountability', in which he apologised for frequently performing in blackface, using the N-word and making inappropriate comments about children. 

While he did not specifically mention the video featuring Willow, Shane insisted he would never talk about a child in an inappropriate way "in seriousness". 

"I swear on my life, I am not somebody who would ever talk about a child, like in seriousness, I would never talk about a child in any way that is inappropriate," he said. 

"That is disgusting, that is gross, it is not something I would ever do. It is something I did for shock value or because I thought it was funny or like, 'Oh my god, my child molester character', or whatever."

Earlier this month, Shane said he was "too sensitive for this shit" and that he was "done" after receiving backlash for a range of controversial videos. 

"I deleted everything," he wrote. 

Will Smith has not joined his family in admonishing Shane over the video.
