Circa 2009, YouTube- still in its formative years- saw a wave of charismatic characters glide into its platform and bolster its popularity with engaging original content.
At the forefront? The quick-witted and fast-paced personality Qaadir Howard.
Then in high-school, the entertainer’s YouTube channel saw him share side-splitting tales prised from his everyday life armed with unforgettable one-liners and comedic references to Pop culture.
Many believe his personality was the blueprint for Bretman Rock‘s lucrative social media act.
Now, those who wondered why Howard did not yield fruit from the garden he had a hand in planting have learned that Shane Dawson may be to blame.

As a number of Dawson’s disturbing moves rise to the surface members of the YouTube community unearthed a video released by Qaadir in 2013 in which he details his harrowing experiences content creators on the platform.
He did not name Dawson at the time but fans, who were aware that they had collaborated in the past, believed he was.
This week, the ‘Common Love‘ performer bared all.
Howard’s tell-all comes weeks after the musician Tokyo Vanity stepped forward to condemn Shane’s troubled pal Jeffree Star.
I ALWAYS thought it was so strange that Qaadir didn’t blow up bigger than he has. He should have had so many offers, his YouTube views were pulling in big numbers.
I KNEW they f’d with him behind the scenes. I really can’t stand Shane Dawson and his coon Shanna.
