Controversy is nothing new for Jeffree Star. This time around, he spent weeks off of social media to "find himself".
After weeks of being silent, Jeffree Star comes back to social media, this time with a 10-minute video titled “Doing What’s Right”. Jeffree Star addresses allegations that he and YouTube mega-influencer Shane Dawson manipulated YouTube beauty star Tati Westbrook into lashing out against influencer James Charles last year.
Shane Dawson who is Jeffree Star’s friend and ally, faced calls to address his older videos that included racism, anti-Semitism, and jokes about pedophilia.
Making a mistake is one thing, being accused of continued racist behavior you fail to own up to is a little different! But it’s unclear if Jeffree Star knows the difference or not.
On his most recent YouTube video "Doing The Right Thing", Jeffree Start did apologised to James Charles and addressed his friendship with Shane. Although he didn’t mention Tati by name, he stated he’s never blackmailed anyone.
Jeffree said in his video "I’ve been silent for a very long time, and I know that’s very rare for me," Jeffree continued saying. "I’ve taken a lot of time to do a lot of self-reflection. Now in the past, I have been guilty of speaking out of anger, out of frustration, out of my emotions."
It's known that "Morphe Cosmetics Cuts Ties With Jeffree Star."
We shall see what the future holds.
At the end of his video, Jeffree Start said "Jeffree Star Cosmetic will never be slowing down,
And I am SO excited for everything that is coming for the rest of 2020" he continued saying,
"But what is coming next is one of my most exciting projects ever and I can't wait, August is going to be very exciting"
