Nearly six years after the incident took place, Shane Dawson's horrific cat story is trending online once again, courtesy of a questionable Nintendo tweet.
Recently, Nintendo's social media supposedly posted a tweet about cats, which raised several online community eyebrows.
It turns out. Nintendo did not make the tweet. Instead, an account was posted that removed its Twitter handle to make it seem like Nintendo had indeed made it of America.
What instantly caught Twitter users' attention was the caption, which read, "Shane Dawson runs the Nintendo account now apparently."
It was a direct nod to his horrendous podcast clip from 2015, which went viral worldwide.
In the clip, Dawson described a sexual act in which he took part with his cat.
He can be heard describing exactly what he did to his cat.
"One time I laid my cat down on her back. I moved her little chicken legs spread open or whatever. I came all over the cat. It was like my first sexual experience. I was also like 19"
In the aftermath of the clip going viral, he ended up facing severe backlash online and quickly clarified that it was said in jest, as he went on to issue an apology:
With his horrific cat story resurfacing online, Twitter users were left scandalized upon clicking on his name in the trending bar, as they vociferously pledged for the need not to give Dawson such a limelight.
