  • In 2018, many of Grayson and Ethan’s fans requested to address the issue faced by the people of color who shared times when they received racist remarks from other people in the fandom. After the complaint reached the Dolan twins, Ethan tweeted that they were all same. However, this did not go well with the fans, and they criticized the Dolan Twins for not addressing the issue directly and avoiding it. Soon, Ethan tweeted in response to criticism that he was not avoiding the issue, but was busy to reply soon. In the following tweet, Ethan said that whoever was discriminating against the people on the bases of color, ethnicity, or race, should unfollow him. [3]Teen Vogue
