I’ve been a big time fan of Jeffree Star Liquid Lipsticks. The formula is one of my favorites on the market. I’ve watched his cosmetics company skyrocket over the last year, and I really was cheering him on from the sidelines. However, after watching his rant against fellow Youtuber MakeupShayla and subsequently writing about it (click HERE), I had a change of heart about supporting any of his products.
Here’s a snippet of his rant against Shayla:
After seeing the video above, I did some digging and found a video wherein he uses the phrase “Black Bitch” on more than one occasion. This was supposed to be a skit, and he was young (he says he was 19), but it’s one of those things I can’t “unhear,” and it completely changed my opinion of him. He’s just not someone I would want to support. Not when there are so many black-owned cosmetics companies to support instead (Click HERE for a list of black-owned cosmetics companies)
