yeah, he's been definitely plotting his comeback for some time now, and he could def see the jc scandal as a good "oppurtunity" kek
What's ironic though, with how highly Shane thinks of himself – how he's this great, hardworking, skilled, groundbreaking, unfairly underpaid director, producer, writer, documentary creator, oprah 2.0, the godfather of youtube, whatever – he sure does cling hardcore to his ytuber status. While a lot of the other folk, who have started out the same time he did, and who have actually proven themselves as good videographers, producers, etc have long established themselves in the "real world".
If Shane's such hot shit like he claims he is, once you've faced all this "unfair" "cancel culture" scrutiny, why not step aside from it all and go work on some real projects. In LA, in the media / filmmaking biz they'd care fuck all about his allegations. It must be, that deep down inside he know he's full of shit, as far as his proficiency goes.
