It’s been a week of extreme ups and downs for bisexual YouTuber Shane Dawson.
After three years of dating, he and his boyfriend Ryland Adams, who boast a combined YouTube following of 24 million, announced they’re engaged to be married.
Dawson made the big announcement on Instagram with a series of photos captioned “HE SAID YES!!!!!! :,)))))))”
He then took to Twitter to express his jubilation.
THIS IS THE BEST NIGHT OF MY LIFE AHHHHHHHHH!!!! THANK U GUYS FOR ALL THE LOVE MY HEART IS LITERALLY GONNA EXPLODE ??????????????????????????

Adams also shared his excitement on Twitter, saying he “couldn’t breathe” and has “never been happier.”

The engagement is very exciting, of course. But it’s underscored by a totally bizarre story involving Dawson from just a few days ago.
Earlier in the week, Dawson found himself embroiled in a bestiality scandal after an old episode of his podcast “Shane and Friends” resurfaced during which he told a story about how he “humped” his cat.
This week, Dawson said the story “was based on a dumb sketch idea,” adding, “my goal with the podcast and with my videos years ago was to tell shocking stories that would make people laugh and scream ‘OMG NO U DIDNT!!’ and think i was ‘soooo crazy.’”
“I’m sorry for what I said about my cat,” Dawson apologized. “I’m sorry for what I said about anything or anyone that was offensive.”
“I’m sorry for being someone who thought being super offensive and shocking all the time was funny. I’m sorry for my past. But I’m [ready] to make it right.”
“I didn’t f*ck my cat.”

Ryland, thank you for making the last 3 years the happiest time of my life. Thank you for sleeping next to me even though i sweat through the sheets. Thank you for making me smile and reminding me how loved I am in real life even when I’m being cancelled online. Thank you for letting me cover you in fake tattoos and wigs for videos and sometimes just for a fun saturday night. Thank you for loving me unconditionally and reminding me everyday that i should love myself too. I thank the universe everyday for bringing you into my life and I can’t wait to start a future with you and start every day thinking about how lucky I am. I love you more than i can ever even explain in words. -Shane ??:,)
