Dawson made the initial comments on a podcast three years ago during which he claimed to have done 'terrible things' to his pets. The then 19-year-old social media star claimed: ‘I laid my cat down on her back,' before adding that he 'came’ all over her.
‘I didn’t f*** my cat. I didn’t c** on my cat. I didn’t put my d*** anywhere near my cat. I’ve never done anything weird with my cats. I promised myself I wasn’t going to make apology videos after last year’s thing so I’m just trying to be short and honest with this as possible [sic]’ came his denial via Twitter.
'I've apologized many times for all the dumb s**t I've said in videos and podcasts over the years. I've learned my lesson over and over again and I'm more confident now in my ability to be entertaining by just being myself and not being so shocking for laughs.
'That story was fake and was based on a dumb awful sketch idea I had years ago that I never made (THANK GOD) and when the opportunity came up for a funny moment in the podcast I told it as if it was a real story which was DISGUSTING and VERY VERY DUMB.
'There's so many things I'm so proud of. But all of my offensive jokes, over the top stories, and insensitive jokes are something that still haunt me and something I have to be faced with everyday on the internet. And it never gets easier.'
Dawson has previously been embroiled in controversy following comments he has made about pedophilia.
The comments, again made on his podcast, involved him saying a six-year-old Instagram star was 'sexy'.
