This is Shane's first public appearance since June 30.

Shane Dawson is back on YouTube (via fiancé Ryland Adams' channel) following a slew of very public scandals.

On Wednesday (Sep 9), Ryland shared a video titled "Our Bedroom Makeover Reveal". Ryland and Shane, who appears in the YouTube thumbnail and throughout the 18-minute clip, detail the process behind their bedroom makeover, before finally revealing their revamped suite to Ryland's family.

"Oh my god, wait. Oh my god, this is scary…," Shane says when Ryland first puts the camera on him. Before you ask, nope, he wasn't camera shy because of the multiple allegations against him, it was because of his, erm, new haircut. (However, it's worth noting that this was allegedly filmed in June 2020, before the worst of the backlash kicked off...)

The YouTuber chose not to address any of his recent drama, however, he did joke about the "15 years of hate comments" he has received on YouTube throughout his career.

This is actually the first time we've seen Shane since June 30, after he finally took accountability for using blackface and racial slurs in the past. Shane also received backlash for sexualising Willow Smith when she was just 11, getting called out by her mother Jada Pinkett Smith and older brother Jaden Smith. Oh and then there was that whole mess with Tati Westbrook

Shane lost a million subscribers as a result of his many scandals, Target removed his books from stores, Morphe ripped his products from their websites and YouTube demonetised his videos.

Whist the comments on Ryland's video were all suspiciously positive, Shane's return without any explanation was branded "disrespectful".
