Just hours before the clip was brought to light, Dawson, 31, issued an apology via YouTube for past comedy bits that include racial stereotypes and blackface.

YouTuber Shane Dawson is being called out — once again — this time for appearing to touch himself inappropriately to a poster of Willow Smith when she was just 11 years old.

The disturbing clip that surfaced Saturday morning shows Dawson staring at a photo of a pre-teen Smith while pretending to masturbate. He also sexualizes the lyrics to Smith’s 2010 debut single, “Whip My Hair.”

Dawson is 12 years older than the “Red Table Talk” co-host, who is now 19.

“Shane Dawson?? Doing this to a picture of Willow Smith? DISGUSTING!!! No apology can erase that, just disappear my guy,” wrote one tweeter, with another adding, “YOU KNOW DAYUM WELL IF HIS HUMOR WAS DIRECTED AND PLAYED OUT LIKE THAT TOWARDS THE YOUTH IN YOUR LIFE, EXCUSES OF HUMOR WOULD NOT BE A ON THE TABLE!!!”

Just hours before the clip was brought to light, Dawson, 31, issued an apology via YouTube for past comedy bits that include racial stereotypes and blackface.

“I was at least 20 when I started YouTube, and I made the decision to play stereotypes of Black people, or Asian people, or Mexicans, or pretty much every race. I made that decision. I said, ‘Oh this is funny,’ and I put that on the internet,” he admitted. “Now, years later, I look back at that and … when I say I hate that person, I mean it in the most intense way possible.”
