YouTube star Shane Dawson is a happy man. He just got engaged to his boyfriend Ryland Adams. The two were engaged on their third anniversary of being a couple.

Dawson got down on his knees and presented Adams a sparkly diamond ring. Pictures of the event popped up on social media Tuesday night.

While most people are happy about the engagement, some people are saying the engagement is to divert attention from a controversy. Audio from a 2016 podcast of Dawson saying he had sex with a cat has been making the rounds.

Dawson tweeted that he did not do such a thing and the story was fake.

So, do you believe the love story or the cover-up? What have you done to divert someones attention from a serious situation?
