Though the corporate didn’t elaborate on why it made the choice to drop Jeffree Star, it isn’t too tough to attach the dots. The make-up maven is at the moment entangled in a variety of controversies, in spite of everything. And it is sufficient to make anybody’s head spin.
For starters, a number of outdated movies of Jeffree making racist feedback have resurfaced — in addition to of his good friend/collaborator Shane Dawson, who has since addressed and apologized for his previous habits.
Then there’s Tati Westbrook’s video titled, “BREAKING MY SILENCE….,” throughout which she claims Jeffree and Shane Dawson manipulated her into posting her “BYE SISTER” video about James Charles in Could 2019.
Since Tati’s video was revealed on June 30, Jeffree remained uncharacteristically silent on social media — regardless of the launch of Jeffree Star Cosmetics’ velour lip liners on July 10.
It is unclear why, precisely, Morphe has determined to drop Jeffree Star’s merchandise. The corporate might need been leaning towards the transfer in mild of Jeffree’s previous, racist habits — after which the entire Tati drama was merely the tipping level. Or maybe it was a very long time coming due to Jeffree’s “villain” repute.
Both method, it appears to be like like Morphe prospects are going to should look elsewhere in the event that they need to get their hand on Jeffree’s make-up.
