This has to be the most absurd story I've ever read. Right now, popular YouTuber Shane Dawson is attempting to clear his name after a podcast resurfaced over the weekend where he made some pretty disgusting claims. Twitter was up in arms after one user found footage of Dawson saying that he had ejaculated on his cat's belly, laughing throughout the entire story. Obviously, that's wrong on so many levels. Part of why Shane Dawson has become so popular on the video-sharing platform is because of his compelling stories but this one was not taken well at all. He has since denied having sexual intercourse with his cat, tweeting that the story was fake.

"I didn't fuck my cat," said the controversial social media star. "I didn't cum on my cat. I didn't put my dick anywhere near my cat. I've never done anything weird with my cats. I promised myself I wasn't going to make apology videos after last year's thing so I'm just trying to be as short and honest with this as possible."

Last year, Dawson was criticized after he stood up for fellow YouTuber Jake Paul when he was hit with racism claims. He continued to explain himself: "That story was fake and was based on a dumb awful sketch idea I had years ago that I never made (THANK GOD) and when the opportunity came up for a funny moment in the podcast I told it as if it was a real story which was DISGUSTING and VERY VERY DUMB."

He regrets telling the story as if it were true. Read his full statement below.
