Hello. It has been a long time coming, but we finally have a PULL FAQ! In this FAQ you may find answers to most commonly asked questions here on the site. Please make sure to read the FAQ before asking a question in the Site Feedback (formerly the "Make Your Voice Heard") subforum as chances are your question has already been answered. If it has not been answered, then feel free to ask your question within the thread or make a new one with your question. The FAQ can be found in 2 locations: The News & Announcements section and the Site Feedback section. We hope this helps current and new users. Thank you.
Usually when a thread is locked, it's because we need to go though reports that require investigation/hiding of several posts. Usually we try to give an explanation as to why in the thread itself but sometimes we forget! The thread is open again now.
Oh yes, his mom character with the red wig was a more "extreme" version of his actual mother. While googling to make sure, I found an entire fan wiki dedicated to Shane lmao. There might be some interesting things to find there wrt his past?
Sounds possible. I do remember, back when it all went down, seeing one of his old fans who he traded nudes with claiming that before he made his divorce announcement he tried to convince her that Heidi was crazy and abusive. It's definitely possible some people took his side and he kept contact with them. Either way, what a fucking piece of shit he is. He has not learned his lesson, and even if Holly would be cool with it (considering she gets jealous I doubt it) he's an idiot for going back to his abuse of power toward his fans.
Whether he's actually been molested or not, weaponizing it like he's done is unacceptable, in my opinion. He did it in the same breath as he accused Tati of doing the same thing. It's true that people who have been molested or otherwise abused as children can grow up to become abusers themselves, that doesn't excuse their abusive actions tho. But I feel like Shane kind of thinks that it does.
Well, I hope Holly's happy with her current lot in life. Posting about nothing but her various birds and desperately clinging on to the few pieces of DCA fanart out there. All while her supposed boyfriend barely acknowledges her despite the shit they went through to be together. Whomp whomp.
The only reason he went after Shane in the first place was because he was bitter about Shane not wanting to associate with him. Greggles always seemed extremely bitter about it, while Shane literally never spoke about him. Sure, in this instance Greg was kind of right about Shane, but he's only bringing it up in the hopes that it'll take the heat off himself.
I just thinks hes trying to be "sexy" with the "oooh my pussy hurts it wants to become pregnant!" talk. It sounds like a bad hentai translation. Like 90% of the shit she says is just pandering to any and every fetish she comes across, I don't think her pussy is actually hurting during sex.
Adrienne is definitely an idiot, but I'm not sure she qualifies as a mixed/blackfish. It's more general snowflakery with the cookie cutter insta baddie face fillers and "I'm sooo natural u guyz!" talk.
The irony of him refusing to change the script to accommodate others when HE HIMSELF changed the entire fucking script just to fit his own brand of immature and offensive "comedy".. lol. His complete lack of understanding in how the movie industry works, especially outside LA, is also very embarrassing. His only prior experience was big youtube collaborations where everyone there was probably sucking up to him, so entering an actual professional movie production with industry veterans acting like he owned the goddamned place is crazy. Can't believe he wanted to become an actual filmmaker, and thank god he never got the chance to fuck over an entire project in this way again.
A lot of people who claim that "Oh this was such a long time ago, things were different back then!" seem to be under the impression that most of these videos and audio clips are from around a decade ago, and a lot of them are from the mid 2010s. Like, I get that most of Shane's current fans hadn't even started middle school in 2012, but Shane was a grown ass man who openly admit his comedy was shocking and offensive at the time. That was his whole brand. You can see and hear him say shit like "Oh I can't say something that racist on your channel" when in other people's videos, so him and the people around him were all fully aware of Shane's reputation for racist and sexual "humor". Saying shit in the vein of "oh but nobody cared back then, why do they suddenly care now?" is undermining and downplaying the abuse people like Chescaleigh went through for criticizing Shane for his blatant racism.
If someone has the energy to write up a new OP with more information, I'm sure the mods would be willing to move him over there. They've done it with other threads in the past, iirc.
Re: The talk about Shane's lack of black friends... There's this video of Shane from high school spreading around where he pretends to be Hitler. He's always claimed to have gone to a very black highschool and that all of the black kids there looved his offensive jokes, but in this video I am not seeing any of the "black friends" he always claimed to have.
Rewatching the video of him freaking out is honestly kind of unsettling. He looks and acts completely unhinged, screaming at his television like that, his public persona crumbling to dust. I sincerely hope he's acting this nuts partly due to the stress of losing several sources of income in like 2 days.
LMAOOOO Shane and Ryland have been extremely quiet for the past few days despite Shane's career literally sinking like the Titanic right before their eyes. BUT NOW, when Tati makes a frankly weak video making everyone involved seem like petty children unaware of their actual power imbalances, they freak the FUCK out. This makes me suspect that Jeffree manipulated Shane as well and promised him something like this would not happen, and now he's breaking down because he's an idiot who trusted Jeffree. OR... Shane is desperately hoping that this Tati video will somehow overshadow his pedophilia accusations.
Lmao, how convenient that she "forgot" to mention Shane's facetime call in her video. The fact that she's still very vague about whether or not she still considers Shane a friend or not is telling.
I'm honestly impressed that a lot of companies are now officially dropping Shane (hopefully) for good. He will not recover from this. Honestly tho, unless he's somehow wasted all of his money from the makeup launch in less than a year, he will still be fine living off that money for a while.
Oh, this is really incriminating. Considering the fact that Shane later gave Drew a part in his movie and also kept him around as a friend, despite their 7 year age difference, is really weird. And with the sexual nature of these "jokes", basically grooming. Fucking creep.
You can tell that Shane thought deleting his videos/channels would be the end of the old stuff resurfacing. But new instances of old videos, tweets and instagram posts from both Shane himself and his collaborators keep piling up with every passing hour. Shane's inner circle have all been quiet about this too. I wonder if Andrew is regretting making Shane his meal ticket now. Ryland should honestly leave him, they barely like each other anymore anyway. I wonder how Ryland and Morgan's parents think about all of this. Shane's own mother, who is in a lot of his old videos and actively participating in a lot of the offensive shit, has pretty much said nothing too. Her last twitter post was made before his outburst, I'm pretty sure, and she just talks about how she loves him. Is she still proud, I wonder?
And some old Shane insta posts just to keep things documented in the thread.
Speaking of, someone should write up a proper OP to replace the one in this thread. It's not up to current PULL standards and if we want Shane moved to the Snowflake section that needs to be fixed first.
I'm personally not a Blair fan at all (quite the opposite actually) and the Jeffree stuff is OT here, and the Shane bit at the end was kind of... weak. Like, it's obvious Blair is more sad that one of her most popular friends has been outed as a pervert, than actually being upset with the shit he's said and done.
