After Shawn's racism was mentioned in the comments of Shawn's "I'm not gay" Rolling Stone interview, I decided to do a little digging to see whatisthetruth.gif.
This isn't the first time his sordid past has been exposed. Matter of fact, earlier this year InTouch Weekly reported on Shawn's old Instagram post from 2012 where Shawn used the n-word in his caption to describe his friend, Kareem. The caption said, "A regular day with mah n***** Kareem."
Shawn removed the caption after he received backlash. One user wrote "Delete Shawn before this comes to haunt you hoe."
This was before he tweeted and then deleted "Light skin girls>>>>>>". You thought he would have learned.
He also tweeted this to a fan telling her the black jumped out after she wrote some nonsense.

Shawn also thought it was funny when his hair looked like this:
Shawn has never acknowledged any of these posts. Maybe we should change that.
