Shane Dawson is one of the latest celebrities to have his past come back to haunt him. 

The popular YouTuber recently came under fire for past content that has been deemed controversial. Moments like this have proven to have the ability to be detrimental to one's career, sometimes even resulting in the end of it. For Dawson, his influence comes largely from the support of his huge fan base of YouTube followers. So in light of this controversy, is he losing subscribers?

The answer is both yes and no. While he has experienced a dip in subscribers since his problematic content resurfaced, it's not necessarily a devastating amount -- at least not so far. According to SocialBlade, Dawson has lost around 600,000 subscribers in the last 30 days on his main Shane channel. This, however, is just a speck compared to the whopping 22.6M subscribers he still has to date.

These are his numbers even after celebrities Jada Pinkett Smith and her son Jaden called him out for a video he made pretending to masturbate to a poster of a then 11-year-old Willow Smith (currently 19-years-old) -- Jada's daughter and Jaden's sister -- as he spoke altered lyrics to her 2010 song "Whip My Hair."

As a result, Jada tweeted a short but loaded message to the YouTuber on June 27, writing, "To Shane Dawson ... I’m done with the excuses."

Jaden, on the other hand, dished out a more lengthy response showing his vehement distaste for the 31-year-old comedian. 

"SHANE DAWSON I AM DISGUSTED BY YOU. YOU SEXUALIZING AN 11 YEAR OLD GIRL WHO HAPPENS TO BE MY SISTER!!!!!! IS THE FURTHEST THING FROM FUNNY AND NOT OKAY IN THE SLIGHTEST BIT," he wrote

"This Man Was Also Doing Black Face On The Regular," the 21-year-old rapper added in a follow-up tweet. "As The Youth We Need To Support Creators Who Support Us And Our Morals. This Is Not Okay."

The tweets came one day after Dawson released "Taking Accountability," a 20-minute video in which he apologized for some of his past indiscretions. According to People, in the clip, he apologized for his use of derogatory racial terms, use of blackface, and for making "inappropriate" comments about children, though he made no mention of Willow by name. The video has since been viewed over 10.2M times.

Dawson isn't the first YouTube star to have to own up to making questionable decisions in the past. Last week, longtime YouTuber Jenna Marbles (Mourey) acknowledged her past problematic content and made the decision to quit the platform.
