Jeffree Star haunted by racist past as Morphe Brushes cancels him, Internet says ‘it’s about time’

Published

on

In a statement on July 10, makeup brand Morphe Cosmetics dumped YouTube beauty influencer Jeffree Star. Taking to their Twitter account, the brand announced, “Today we’ve made the decision to cease all commercial activity related to Jeffree Star and affiliated products.”

This comes hot on heels of Star being called out for his bigoted statements and the increasing backlash he and his co-collaborator Shane Dawson have been facing. Resurfaced videos show Star using racist and other types of offensive language while three of Dawson’s videos were demonetized. “We expect this to conclude within the coming weeks. As we look to the future, we will continue to share updates on what lies ahead for the Morphe brand,” the statement continued to read.

Star was once the star collaborator with the brand, launching several lines with the company. The YouTube creator took to Instagram to respond to the brand’s announcement that took him by surprise. “We are shocked and extremely saddened by the decision of our former retail partner Morphe Brushes on parting ways with our brand and Jeffree.” 

Star’s loyal fanbase is relentlessly advocating for him on Twitter. “So there’s no point in buying Morphe’s cheap s**t anymore, the only reason people go in morphe stores is for JSC (Jeffree Star Cosmetics),” tweeted one. “Always stand with you the only reason I went into morphe was for this brand… I won’t be going in there anymore,” one commented on his Instagram.

The beauty influencer has apologized for his past actions. And so his supporters believe he must be given another chance. “Today I learned there is no point to grow as a person and change for the better because 10 years ago is who we all are, right? Solid.” But this isn’t entirely true as Morphe has previously stated that “Jeffree Star has acknowledged mistakes made in the past and has apologized, taken accountability, and worked hard to make amends within the community.”

But many pointed out it is high time that he be canceled. “@JeffreeStar the tea has been dumped all over you. You should’ve been cancelled since you’re a racist. Can’t relate.” Another said, “Totally unfair on Jeffree Star lmao what?? Jeffree is 10x worse than Shane and if anything, he should have been cancelled a long time ago and I think Morphe will do just fine without his promo if not even better.”

There are also those calling out the brand for only dropping Star and not other problematic people it is associated with. “Well tbh if the reason is racism and everything that’s Jeffree did you might as well take everyone that collabs with morphe off like James and manny and Laura lee and etc because everyone has had their fair shade of tea and drama and racist comments. Just a train of thought.”

There are those, however, who support Morphe is their decision. “THANK YOU MORPHE ABOUT TIME!! I’ll def start buying again, for those of you who don’t understand why, he has apologized, but he also hangs out w 2 known racists, also, he’s besties w Shane Dawson’s pedo ass, & he hasn’t even spoken out about it which I really hoped he would.” Another user supported Morphe and said, “Anyone who still supports Jeffree star is a racist by association.”

Charlie Confronts Elizabeth Potthast: I Won’t Let You STEAL Dad’s Money!

Published

By


This last episode of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? left us all wondering if Andrei was going to beat up Charlie.


As you can see in this video, things are looking more complicated than that … because Charlie is just as mad at his sister right now.


In this sneak peek clip of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? Season 5, Episode 15, Chuck narrates the apparent aftermath of Andrei and Charlie’s confrontation.


“Him and Charlie confronted each other,” he explains to his concerned daughter, Elizabeth.


“He didn’t want to get in a fight with Charlie,” Chuck continues, “so he was like, ‘no, not now. And he walked away.”

Chuck Potthast - so right now, he was the bigger man


“And so,” Chuck explains to Libby, “right now, he was the bigger man.”


It sounds as though he is speaking up in defense of his layabout of a son-in-law. That, folks, we did not see coming.


Charlie … is not doing himself any favors, here.

Charlie Potthast - he's soft! he's soft!


Poking his father in the chest but addressing Elizabeth, Charlie says “He’s soft! He’s soft!”


“He, like, f–king, like, bends over backwards for you guys,” he accuses.


Keep in mind that Elizabeth’s brother has been drinking all evening.

Chuck Potthast - this is my daughter's wedding


“This is my daughter’s wedding!” Chuck points out, explaining why he wants things to go well.


“I don’t give a f–k!” Charlie retorts. “I don’t give a f–k!”


Oh, Charlie, this is not a good look. And it gets worse.

Charlie Potthast - I'm going to protect him


“Going forward,” Charlie slurs, “I am going to protect him.”


Still referring to his father, he declares: “And y’all aren’t stealing any of his money.”


A perplexed Elizabeth replies: “Nobody’s stealing anybody’s money.”

Charlie Potthast - y'all aren't going to steal his money


“This is my night, like, this is my night,” Elizabeth emphasizes to her inebriated brother.


She implores him: “Please, don’t ruin it.”


Charlie then walks away, vanishing into the crowd.

Elizabeth Potthast - this is my night this is my night


“They don’t pick the right place or the right time to do any of their bullsh–t,” Elizabeth expresses to her father.


“They have zero regard,” she laments.


“And,” Libby continues, “I just want to dance and have a good time.”

Elizabeth Potthast - ... or the right time to do any of their bulls--t


“I don’t want to do this right now,” Elizabeth says.


“Forget about it,” Chuck stresses to her. “Forget about it.”


It is his turn to plead: “Don’t let it ruin your evening.”

Elizabeth Potthast - I just want everybody to dance and have ...


Reassured to some degree by her father’s words, she walks off and joins her husband, Andrei.


“A part of me worries that, what if my family never gets along with my husband?” Libby tells the confessional camera.


“Like, what if they always have this constant tension and drama and negativity?” she openly fears. “Like, what if it doesn’t end? I just … I don’t know.”

Elizabeth Potthast to the confessional camera - I just don't know


On the one hand, we can more than understand the root of her fears.


Andrei’s piss-poor attitude and his refusal to take generous job offers from her family have rubbed everyone the wrong way.


But her fears in this moment may be misplaced.

Andrei Castravet - I don't understand your english


It sounds like Charlie’s conflict isn’t just about Andrei, but about Elizabeth herself, too.


He sounds insecure about his role in his family’s finances and resentful of what Chuck has spent on Elizabeth.


He is also, well, drunk. He’s not going to be drunk at every family gathering for the rest of time. At least, we assume not.

Elizabeth Potthast and Chuck Potthast at the reception, purple lights


As for Chuck, he is actually Team Andrei at the moment, an almost unbelievable prospect.


He was praising Andrei’s behavior to his daughter and is clearly embarrassed by Charlie’s behavior.


This is all seemingly in the aftermath of Charlie’s confrontation with Andrei, so we take it from this that nobody got beaten up. That’s good.
