Shelter confirm they will not be accepting the proceeds from Dapper Laughs' charity Christmas album Twitter/Dapper Laughs

Homeless charity Shelter have said they will not be accepting donations from Vine star turned TV presenter Dapper Laughs following issues about the lyrics in his charity album.

Dapper Laughs, real name Daniel O'Reilly, became an internet sensation as a result of his six-seconds clips on his Vine account, which has more than 500,000 followers.

While building up a huge following online, including more than 1.7m Facebook Likes and 360,00 Twitter followers, his comedy style has also been criticised as "trivialising of rape, unprotected sex and dehumanising women".

Many of his short video clips show Dapper laughs approaching women in the street and making comments which have also been described as "bordering on harassment".

Despite this, his popularity grew so much he was given a presenting job on ITV2 on a show On The Pull.

Recently, Dapper Laughs has released a charity album on Spotify entitled Proper Naughty Xmas, the proceeds of which are being donated to charity.

However, as pointed out by Usvsth3m, one of the tracks on the album, Leaving the Pub...with a Tramp, contains a part where he shouts at a homeless person featured in the song "You smell like s**t".

Usvsth3m also showed how on previous occasions Dapper Laughs makes jokes at the expense of homeless people on his Twitter account.

As a result, Shelter confirmed they will not be accepting donations from the internet personality "however small...for reasons Usvsth3m make clear".

Shelter's CEO Campbell Robb added: "The fact that 90,000 children will wake up homeless this Christmas is no joke.

"Dapper Laughs's brand of 'comedy' - which is deeply offensive about homeless people, not to mention many others - is something we felt it was important to take a stand against.

"The support from the public has been overwhelming and we've seen a fantastic rise in donations as a result, meaning Shelter can help even more people this Christmas."

Dapper Laughs has not yet responded to the decision from Shelter.

This is not the first time the controversial comedian has been criticised for his style of humour. His scheduled gig at Cardiff University Students' Union was cancelled after more than 700 students signed a petition objecting to his appearance.

Cardiff University Students' Union president Elliot Howells said the Views of Dapper Laughs "go against our policies and everything we stand for".
