Jaden Smith convicted YouTube artist Shane Dawson for a disturbing video involving Smith’s sister Willow, 11.
In the reappeared video, Dawson appears to be pretending to masturbate with a Disney poster for Willow Smith, and refers to his hit song “Whip My Hair.”
The brothers’ mother, actress Jada Pinkett-Smith, responded late on Saturday, June 27, tweeting: “To Shane Dawson … I’m done with the excuses.”

Actor and rapper Jaden retweeted his mother and posted a series of tweets, writing that he was “upset” by Dawson’s actions.
“Sexualizing an 11-year-old girl who turns out to be my sister … is the furthest thing from the funny and not the least bit right,” she tweeted.
He added: “This man was also doing blackface on a regular basis,” before urging youth to “support the creators who support us and our morale.”
“This is not right,” he said, referring again to Dawson’s behavior.
Dawson, 31, recently issued an apology for the videos of himself with a black face.
“Blackface was something I did a lot of,” he said. “Like, I did it a lot on my channel. There is no excuse for it, there is literally no excuse.”
“I made a video six years ago talking about it and made excuses, I knew it was wrong, I knew I never wanted to do it again, but I didn’t do the job. I didn’t really examine history and why it’s so wrong, and why people were so upset, “he continued.
“Because my ‘excuse’ [was] “I was just being funny, I love blacks, I’m not racist. I was trying to be funny. ‘ All of that is stupid and wrong. And I put it on the internet as an adult, and that’s crazy. So sorry.”
Dawson has yet to respond to the Smiths’ conviction of the Willow video.
