A: Australia

A: It’s a scar ❤️

Garrett is legit a kindred spirit. I won't say anything about the "other" people.

I literally see nothing to hate for Garrett, even Jeffree has never said bad abt him and jeffree is a shit person who will throw anyone under the bus. Even if garrett doesn’t like jeffree. Ryland is just an absolute bully.

I feel bad for Garret because it honest seemed like he had such a good relationship with Shane’s mom but because him and Shane aren’t friends anymore I can imagine he probably doesn’t talk to her anymore which might make them both sad

Garrett was always my favorite, id love to be his friend. Shane is sick. Can't believe I didn't notice.

Wow, this is just sad. You're basically being like "I hope I get some subs for shading some people that I make bold claims about in this video that I don't even know personally." I guess that's just the 10000001st shade/"tea" channel that's trying to bank on other people's back. Good for you, honey. In 5 years when you finally get famous, your own fans would cancel you just for shits and giggles.

I realized around a year+ ago that I wasn't actually a Shane fan, I just really love Garrett and Andrew. I though I liked Shane, (I never liked Ryland), but I realized I only really enjoyed when Garrett was involved or when andrew was more active in the videos beyond filming or editing. Since realizing that I haven't watched a single Shane or Ryland video. And now I just watch Garrett's channel. Also, He and Andrew have an AMAZINGLY WHOLESOME podcast, Sweet Boys, and that's really all I need tbh. I don't miss Shane or Jeffree at all 🤷🏻‍♀️

Also Graveyard girl expressed multiple times how she was very causious and a little scared of that place. While she may love it and willingly do that stuff and hang out there at night, she takes it very serios, ss she should. She voiced that to Shane multiple times and Shane kept ignoring it and egging on Garrett to do things so he could be Shanes scapegoat. He made everything a joke, such gross behavior I feel so bad for Garrett in that time. I'm so happy he's disconnected from that, same for Andrew.

I thank god every day that Andrew and Garrett got away from Shane and everybody coz I knew those two 100% did not fit that equation and I felt so bad for them. Sweet Boys for life, so happy they dropped Shane.

When I was watching a bunch of Shane Dawson videos, it wasn't because I really knew who Shane was. I thought at that era he was pretty funny. I started watching his videos because I really enjoyed the beacon that Garrett is and I wanted to see more of him! He's pretty damn wholesome and seeing montages of him being made the butt of the joke hurts my heart =( Now I'm going to go watch some Garrett videos on his channel and laugh at his antics.

that clip of garrett and shane acting disappointed when HE literally told him to scare graveyardgirl gave me war flashbacks to when someone did something similar to me in middle school and I was the garrett in that situation... such blatant manipulation like wtf was that

garrett was always my favourite. he's someone i relate to A LOT and someone i aspire to be :)) while andrew and morgan also kinda sometimes teased him, it was never mean, if u get me. like, it just felt like three friends vibing, while ryland and shane just seemed to almost bully him :// morgan, andrew and Garrett were my fave trio on youtube at the time and it's so depressing to realise he was the butt of the joke EVERY TIME.

No hate, I just have a difference of opinion. What you're saying here is completely valid and everyones entitled to have their own opinions of people, which is why I'm split down the middle with this drama between Shane and Garrett. While I agree with you on Shane not being a good friend and targeting Garrett, we are only seeing what is put out on the internet for entertainment purposes, and yes we have seen a lot of them being with other people and going different places. Obviously the friendship they had is long gone for many reasons but maybe we can't all judge Shane on what we see when we only see the tip of the iceberg in their friendship over the years? Just a thought! No one is perfect but I do also disagree with things Shane has both said and done, not only towards Garrett. :)

I always wondered why Garrett was never around anymore because he was so sweet and funny and I liked him so much. I never realized how badly Shane was treating him at the time. No wonder he quit being friends. Thanks for the video.

Crazy how Shane thought Garrett was a sociopath just because he doesn't plan ahead lol I'm not saying Garrett isn't... and I'm definitley not saying he is. But what a dumb way to diagnose someone, besides him not being a professional.

My dad is an actual sociopath. I agree that it’s not just something to throw around and call people when they behave badly, same goes for the word “antisocial.” I don’t get offended but I think it’s important to appreciate how serious personality disorder are.

Garrett is deeply insecure and acts incredibly false. Shane does the same thing sometimes, only he does it in an over the top way so that it’s obvious he’s being false (which is far more honest) or he is self deprecating. My point is, Garrett has always felt like he was in Shane’s shadow and as they are a lot alike I think he has always wanted to break out on his own. Unfortunately it seems he chose to take advantage of the opportunity of kicking Shane while he was down and using the Shane hate to propel himself upward. White people, listen up. We cannot shit on and refuse to allow each other to learn and grow from our past mistakes if we expect to ever make a better world for people of color. A better way has to be accessible, which means for people like Shane who obviously does want to learn and grow, we have to give them the opportunity to do that. If they do it publicly and let the world see an example of how that looks? All the better.

I don't think Ryland is jealous of Garett at all, they're just really different and I feel their personalities clash. I know it's not something drama/commentary channels like to hear but sometimes it's just as simple as that. Also, the Jeffery house thing is a stretch in my opinion. Garrett is surrounded by a tonne of wealthy people so he might feel more pressured my most people to not rent. Not sure it was directed at Jeffery but I could be wrong. finally, I don't think jokes made years ago are really that relevant as they were good friends back then.

As someone who loves Garrett and is also impartial to his friendships, I felt this video seemed pretty biased and some of the things mentioned didn't have much ground. It would be better if you covered both sides of the argument to make your point. Like, how the teasing has always been a part of their friendship (even back when they were on good terms), and done for the videos, it seemed to get more excessive and have a less lighthearted feel more recently however (from Shanes tone and the harshness of the jokes). It's also important to mention that that is his sense of humour too. I think it's funny as well for the videos, but I feel the problem was that it happened off-camera too. When you address both sides of the argument and give more context, your point is more believable and objective. That aside, I really liked the format of the video and there were some good points.

It could very well be that garret carried these documentary style vlogs on his back. I watch mostly for garret, so my question is does garret get any of the ad revenue for those videos? What about Andrew? Because he made those videos much better too. David Dobrik did the same thing! The people in those videos should of been compensated, as well.

Garrett is such a sweet soul, and I relate to him a lot. I've been friends with so many toxic people so I know how hard it can be to let them go. I love him and I'm so glad he's gotten out of those relationships. Blaming that stupid thing with Bunny on him (I think she was just being insanely dramatic and took it too far) and all of the times they blatantly make fun of him... I empathize so much with him because toxic people in my life have done similar shit.

I love Garrett and don’t like Shane but if you did watch his videos Garrett did make jokes about Shane’s body. Shane and Garret did jokes to each other it was a friend thing but Shane was sometimes way over the top and harsh.
Kristen Morgan

People watch the series with Bunny and still don’t believe that Shane is a manipulator and it blows my mind. It’s so painfully obvious that Shane pressured and bullied Garrett into scaring Bunny and when he finally caved in and did as Shane wanted, he shamed Garrett and spoke to him as if he were a child misbehaving. He was feeding off of Bunny’s vulnerability in that moment to make himself look better and to humiliate and belittle Garrett. And the only reason Shane showed sympathy for Bunny was because the people around him were showing sympathy. It’s scary that he behaves this way and he’s gotten away with it for so long.

As someone who watched all of Shane's and Garrett's collab videos I use to think it was an act/joke they played up for the camera. Like with Markiplier and his friends they all pick on each other. But now it's becoming more and more clear Garrett was being abused.

You know what, for some crazy unknown reason I want really badly for Garrett to get his life right. I mean, like having a nice stable job, a caring boyfriend, excitement to complete his projects and shit... Maybe it's because I feel my live is a bit messed up without schedules and I don't want this crap for him, I dunno. Or maybe this is just me projecting myself on him and trying to get better.

Or maybe a lot of it was jokes. I say jokingly mean things to people but then make fun of myself in the same swing. But maybe its the other things and we weren't there for it all. Videos are fake. They plan more than you think.

My whole life I was never into Star Wars, never had much interest in it, any of the movies, the lore, I knew some of the characters and even a bit ab the main story but that’s ab it. My brother is HUGE into it. He’s looking at getting the movie posters, he’s constantly keeping updated with the latest plot progressions and me and him have been watching Star Wars: The Clone Wars together. When me and him are together and he’s watching it his eyes light up and he gets so happy because it’s a whole other multiverse w rich story line and he understands and f e e l s for the characters and loves the story. Now, imagine if I made fun of him for it every chance I got, laughed when he tried to explain things to me, rolled my eyes when he wanted me to watch it with him. Can you imagine how much it would hurt him? Now look at Shane making fun of Garrett’s love for Harry Potter. I can’t even imagine calling myself an empath and then insulting my best friends safe place, the thing that makes them giddy and no doubt see themselves within. It’s so disgusting to even think ab it because insulting someone’s fandom or show or ANYTHING that they clearly have deep fondness for it just a clear sign of a complete lack of respect or love. A friend doesn’t do that, it genuinely makes me so sad to see those clips.

Garett was completely right abt the thing abt sociopathy / narcissism, those are legitimate mental conditions and seeing shane and ppl critical of shane throw those phrases around is ridiculous, especially when they armchair diagnose shane with those conditions because they're doing the same thing he did, he doesn't need to be mentally ill to be gross guys come tf on

It's really sad but people with pure intentions have to learn the hard way to be a little more cynical of others... Garrett was kind and forgiving to the extent that he let bad people get the best of him. While it was hard to watch, he learned a valuable lesson and his recent posts demonstrate the wisdom he's gained, and it seems like he's doing well now.

I’m glad Garret distanced himself from Shane. I was in Garret’s position with a family member who was like Shane. It was incredibly toxic and emotionally painful. Garrett carried every video he was in on his shoulders. He was more interesting than everyone else in that friend group put together. Garret always deserved better than that. It’s awful looking back on how abusive Shane was to him.

i get fixated on things really easily. i’ll learn everything i can about that one thing and then i’ll go and tell my parents or sisters or friends everything i learned. they can last a few days or several months, and it can get annoying really quickly, i know. but it’s frustrating when people tell me they don’t care or tune me out because it makes me want to not talk about stuff anymore, but i can’t control it, like i have to get it all out or i’ll explode, which makes me feel anxious and guilty because i don’t like annoying people, and then it’s just an endless cycle. the point is, if someone is trying to tell you something you don’t care about, politely say so. don’t be an asshole about it. please.

Bunkookie Month ago
I never really noticed when I actually watched Shane's videos that he always put down Garrett's interests probably because I'm autistic and I tend to hyperfixate on my interests and talk about them to the point of annoying people around me so I didn't notice that it wasn't normal behaviour

Garrett and Shane's friendship reminds me a LOT of my past toxic friendship. I was constantly the butt of the joke, she would tell me to do something and then either get mad that I did it or make fun of me, she would be "jokingly" rude to me, etc. I'm a lot like Garrett because I'm not a confrontational person. I told someone to stop talking over me once and was shaking from it for an hour and apologized immediately after. I have interests that I like to talk about obsessively and share with my friends too and got the same reaction he got. That's why I'm not surprised he left, they all treated him like shit and he probably got tired of holding his anger in and left.

This video just made Jeffrey, Ryland and Shane look like bad guys because that was just showing how much of a close friendship they have . You all take everything so serious and this person is using it for views. Obviously he would only put the clips where the rest of the squad acts mean to make them look bad. They were not always bullying Garrett the way it shows here because Garrett always laughed with them and also threw back some roast.

Garett is my favorite. I hated how Shane and the others told him to shut up when he talked about things he liked. He constantly got shut down and as someone who’s had that happened to the point of not ever wanting to talk about things I love. I felt bad for him. Honestly I honestly only watched for Garett. It felt beyond friends making fun of him. It felt like bullying. Idk, Garett is my freaking favorite I forgot to say, he deserves soooooo much better and I’m so happy for him moving on
