*YouTuber Shane Dawson is catching heat for appearing to masturbate to a poster of Willow Smith when she was just 11 years old.

Dawson, 31, who recently posted an apology video for being a racist, is under fire for pretending to pleasure himself to the image of pre-teen Willow. 

As noted by Page Six, Dawson is 12 years older than Will Smith’s daughter, who is now 19.

Both Willow’s mother Jada Pinkett Smith and brother Jaden called him out on Twitter. 

To Shane Dawson … I’m done with the excuses,” Jada wrote on Twitter. 

“SHANE DAWSON I AM DISGUSTED BY YOU. YOU SEXUALIZING AN 11 YEAR OLD GIRL WHO HAPPENS TO BE MY SISTER,” wrote Jaden in all caps. “IS THE FURTHEST THING FROM FUNNY AND NOT OKAY IN THE SLIGHTEST BIT.”

Hours before this clip surfaced online, Dawson posted a video of him apologizing using stereotypes and blackface in his “comedy” skits. 

“I made a video six years ago talking about it, and I gave excuses and I knew it was wrong and I knew I would never want to do it again, but I didn’t do the work,” he said. “I didn’t actually look into the history of it and why it’s so wrong and why people were so upset.”

“I can’t even imagine what it would be like to be Black, and see this white f–king guy do blackface, and the whole internet at that time being like, ‘LOL!'” he continued. “That’s insane and I am so sorry.”

As for using the N-word, Dawson said, “Me as a white person wearing a wig and playing a character and doing stereotypes and saying the n-word is probably what I should have probably lost my career for, at the time. And there’s no amount of apologizing that can take it away.”

“I’m sorry that I added to the normalization of blackface or the normalization of saying the n-word,” he said. “No it’s not okay. And it’s not a funny word especially for a white person to say.”

He also acknowledged “all the racism” he “put onto the internet.”

“At this point realizing how many people I’ve hurt, or how many people I’ve inspired to say awful things or do anything awful, to finally just own up to all of this and be accountable is worth losing everything to me,” Dawson said.

Lawsuit Accuses Ed Sheeran of Copyright Infringement of Marvin Gaye’s ‘Let’s Get It On’

Marvin Gaye; Ed Sheeran

*British pop star Ed Sheeran is being sued for copyright infringement for lifting parts of Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On” for his track “Thinking Out Loud.” 

The 1973 song was co-written by Ed Townsend, whose family filed a lawsuit against Sheeran in 2016, accusing him of lifting the “melody, harmony and rhythmic components” from Gaye’s track, per ABC News

Sheeran initially responded to the suit by claiming public domain gave him permission to use the chord progressions and drum patterns for “Let’s Get It On.”

During a hearing on Tuesday in front of Sony Records, Townsend’s daughter was joined by music icon George Clinton to fight for Black artists.

“These offenses aren’t just taking place in the streets against black individuals in this country. They’re taking place in the boardrooms. They’re taking place in meetings where there’s no representation,” said Keisha Rice, the attorney for Kathryn Townsend.

“Theft and bullying has been the only priority of the record labels’ agenda. It stops today, Sony, Atlantic and all the rest of them. We’re coming for our 40 acres and a mule plus and interest. And know that we’re not going to be silent. It don’t stop till my casket drop,” said Kathryn Townsend.

“Theft of the music is the new sharecroppers,” said George Clinton. “Not only do they take the music and the land back, they take the 40 acres and the mule back. They get it all from the money that’s being made from IP (intellectual property). So the artists don’t have a chance. I have 20 artists in my band who never got paid for all those samples you heard.”

The hearing for the lawsuit against Sheeran has a trial date set for Nov. 9.

Townsend’s estate is seeking songwriting credit and a portion of the profits from Sheeran’s song.

Outrage Over Barkley & Shaq Siding with Cops in Breonna Taylor Case / WATCH

*Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal are catching heat on social media after saying the police killing of Breonna Taylor is different from George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery.

“It’s just bad the young lady lost her life, but we do have to take into account that her boyfriend did shoot at the cops and shot a cop,” Barkley said during NBA on TNT, referencing Taylor’s boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, who fired a warning shot at people he thought were breaking into the home. 

“So, like I said, even though I’m really sorry she lost her life, I don’t think we can just put this in the same situation as George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery.”

Barkley is now facing a flood of angry comments from social media users. And so is Shaq, after he agreed with the NBA star’s comments. 

“I have to agree with Charles, this one is sort of lumped in,” O’Neal said. “You have to get a warrant signed and some states do allow no-knock warrants. And everyone was asking for murder charges. When you talk about murder, you have to show intent. A homicide occurred and we’re sorry a homicide occurred. When you have a warrant signed by the judge, you are doing your job, and I would imagine that you would fire back.”

Barkley went on to condemn calls to abolish and defund the police.

“I hear these fools on TV talk about ‘defund the police,’ we need police reform and prison reform and things like that because you know who ain’t gonna defund the cops, white neighborhoods and rich neighborhoods,” he said. “So that notion that they keep saying that,  I’m like wait a minute who are Black people supposed to call? Ghostbusters? We need police reform.”

Earlier this year, West was filmed receiving a beatdown on a busy street, and later handcuffed shirtless and bloody on a city curb, shouting expletives. At the time, the NBA, his former coach and teammates spoke out about supporting West and his family.

Following the incident, Aaron Goodwin, West’s ex agent, told TMZ that the former athlete was recovering with family members.

Phil Martelli, who coached West and Nelson at Saint Joseph’s, also wrote on Twitter that he and others “are reaching out to our basketball network to get the professional help Delonte needs. This is so very painful.”

WATCH:

West last played in the NBA for the Dallas Mavericks during the 2011-12 season. He previously told The Post’s Rick Maese that doctors diagnosed his bipolar disorder in 2008.

Boston Celtics GM Danny Ainge said he tried to help West in the past.

“Delonte has obviously some troubles and some trials that he’s trying to deal with in his life, and I just hope that he can fix his life and get back on a good path,” Ainge said in January.
