We've heard you loud and clear - negative reputation is back. Remember that it's still against the rules to complain about being downvoted - if you think someone's mass-downvoting posts or otherwise abusing the reputation system, DM a mod and we will take care of it.
Its definitely a distraction. Shocking how it works for his following. "Look I am not a horrible person, because I rejected a sponsorship!" I forgot what it was even about. I agree with you completely, it was very much overblown. Jeffree points a finger, and your entire career can be destroyed. Quite sad, not gonna lie.
So how I encountered it back in the day, was not even through Jeffree. I saw the video only, as something people just made fun of. The backstory presented to me, was that she was one of those kids making videos online. Cause' if you were a kid and made videos, people would make fun of you. People left hate comments, and her dad got angry and made that video. That's how it was presented to me then. Also I agree with you. He just seems so fake. His following is also scary. I mean the situation with Laura, Manny and Nikita. Obviously Laura did some problematic things, and Nikita is just problematic but Manny? Can someone clarify this to me, but did people went off on him, just because it was said that he did some shit to Jeffree? Like it was not clarified what exactly he did to Jeffree?
I feel so bad for laughing at the video, where her dad was screaming. Back then I didn't know all the details, and I think most people didn't or am I wrong here? After knowing all of it, I honestly look at Jeffree with disgust. Usually I was one of the people who would like him again after some time, but not this time. I never like to be this hateful, but with Jeffree I have to make an exception, because I cannot otherwise.
The pattern of behavior Jeffree is displaying, is... I don't even know what to call it, but it would be a negative one. Like first he is friends with someone, than he throws under a bus, than he shows support to then end in hate again? I'm talking about Dahvie, and James. If they are predators as Jeffree alleged, why have instances of praising them after initial allegations? With Dahvie its obvious I know that, and James did not deserve what he got. Did Manny mua, Laura Lee etc did something worse than Dahvie? Is it because what Manny and Laura did was directly against Jeffree, and what Dahvie did was against teenage girls? I can't even blame James for hating on Shane and Jeffree, because of the docu-series on the make up launch. Shane and Jeffree used something that had no evidence, and could ruin James for life but like RUIN him, to promote make up. Not even mentioning the fact Jeffree was spitting all the bs on James before that and had no evidence. If evidence will be shown, I will still stand by the fact, that Jeffree handled all of it so badly.
I don't mind her surgeries, and yeah she clearly had some. I mean yeah sure no one should be the boss of your own face, but its easier said than done. We all have insecurities, we know how bad they can get. What if someone was whispering above her ear things *aka someone at YG*, on how she has to change her face to be successful. I am not saying that happened, but I could see someone breaking down from that. Your argument about how YG didn't force her, because she will leave just didn't convince me. Companies force trainees into extreme dieting, so why not into surgeries?
I only ever saw Shane doing that, and back in the day and Im talking food videos shane back in the day, is what made me stop watching his videos. I just wanted to confirm with you guys that I am not the only one remembering it.
It might have something to do with Jeffree, he may feel poor in comparison to Jeffree. Also Morgan said something about the girls pushing things like surgeries, maybe the same thing is happening to Shane?
What you wrote is interesting. You wrote "(Most gay white men on YouTube have said or done something racist and got a pass for it, including Shane himself, and I’m sick of that shit as a poc)", and my question to you is how would you want to hold them accountable? Don't you think we should let people change and educate them? Whats your evidence that they stayed problematic? I am not saying they didn't, I am just saying it looks like you for sure know something I don't.
LADIES AND GENTLEMAN. She is at it again messaging another fan yet again. At this point she is literally communicating through subscribers and its not ok. I JuSt WaNteD tO KnOw whY yaLL aRe truLy Upset AboUt this. Its at the end of this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SN4OeiahxZI
You and me both sister, this is literally the reason why I stopped liking him. He claims he loves conspiracy, but cannot do any kind of research beyond reading one reddit post not even an entire thread.
