Shane Dawson is facing a lot of backlash over explosive details resurfacing from his past. First, there was the Tati Westbrook and James Charles drama. Last year, James Charles and Tati Westbrook had a very public fallout. (Get caught up on the story here.) Shane Dawson’s friend and business partner Jeffree Star inserted himself into the drama and posted some vicious tweets about James on Twitter. James Charles fired back at Jeffree Star and showed receipts exposing him. Eventually, all sides called a truce. That was until Shane Dawson’s trailer for The Beautiful World of Jeffree Star dropped.
The trailer showed Shane and Jeffree reacting to the Tati Westbrook and James Charles fallout. Critics accused Shane of re-opening old wounds and using their fallout to promote Shane’s Conspiracy collaboration with Jeffree Star Cosmetics. The footage was axed from the documentary, but not before there were calls to cancel both Shane and Jeffree.
Recently, a former Jeffree Star Cosmetics model came forward with new details about the behind-the-scenes feud between Shane, Jeffree and James. This led to speculation that the drama between Tati and James may have been orchestrated by Shane and Jeffree. Shane and Jeffree both denied the rumors, but there are still calls for both of them to be canceled. Shane posted and deleted a long Twitter tirade taking jabs at James, friend and business partner Jeffree, and the beauty community as a whole.
Shane announced that he was leaving the beauty community. (However not before conveniently relaunching his Jeffree Star Cosmetics Conspiracy collab.) The beauty community was NOT happy and went into overdrive digging up old clips of Shane Dawson’s shock humor skits. One clip involves Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith’s daughter Willow. Willow’s brother responded and posted this tweet.
Willow’s mother Jada also chimed in.
Shane uploaded a video apologizing for his old skits.
