Jeffree Star seems to always land himself in the middle of some sort of drama but this time the claims are being taken more seriously. As people are fighting against systemic racism, they are being mindful of who they choose to support.
Jeffery has been exposed multiple times for his racist videos and posts from the past which he has apologized for. However, apologies mean nothing without action.
A man who claims to be a former friend of the huge Youtube star has made a video addressing Jeffery’s racially insensitive behavior as recent as February of this year after his former Jeffery splash page that teased a line called Lipstick Nazi went viral.
He claimed that he was supposed to go to a Gwen Stefani concert with Jeffree that ended up getting canceled. He went on to recall derogatory things the makeup mogul said about Jewish, Hispanic, and Black people.
Another former associate took to Youtube to recall being used as the ‘token’ Black boy for Jeffree’s campaigns. Kameron Lester explained how he never truly felt appreciated and brought up his drama with Black creator Jackie Aina who Star allegedly refused to apologize to.
One more former friend came forward to say that Jeffree had a hand in James Charles’s drama with Tati Westbrook. He allegedly had help from Shane Dawson.
These allegations happened over the past week and Star has lost as much as 100k followers in one day.
He took to social media to apologize for the Lipstick Nazi concept and say that he was not going to give clout to people making false allegations about him.
Jeffree claims to be committed to the task at hand which is using his platform to bring attention to systemic racism.
This comes after he received criticism for releasing a palette named Cremated during the COVID-19 pandemic.
