Massively popular makeup mogul Jeffree Star is one of YouTube’s top beauty gurus, known for his high-end glam and flexing his success with designer handbags and sports cars – a lifestyle he shared with YouTube duo “the Dolan Twins” in mid-September.

Ethan and Grayson Dolan are YouTube’s most popular pair of twins, having rose to fame on Vine before setting up shop on the site – and, in doing so, switched lives with one of its biggest content creators.

Yep, you read that right: the Twins literally transformed into Jeffree Star, who gave them a serious makeover from head to toe to actually become him for an entire day.

Needless to say, the Twins were more than a bit apprehensive at the idea of turning into one of YouTube’s most glamorous stars, donning Jeffree’s classic pink wig, makeup, and even a flashy yellow Adidas tracksuit.

Of course, the duo also got a tour of Star’s impressive designer handbag collection and experienced his usual diet of fast food and candy – but that wasn’t the end of their journey, with the Twins being floored at Star’s series of sports cars.

However, it wasn’t just the Dolan Twins who underwent a serious makeover: Star likewise went under the brush to become the Twins, claiming that he wanted to become someone the exact opposite of his usual image.

“They are the opposite of what Jeffree Star is,” he explained. “As far as looks, image, how they dress, act – everything is so different from me. This would be the biggest challenge!”

That’s not all: Star even went through a normal day in the lives of the Twins, pumping iron in an impromptu workout session and even getting introduced to post-workout protein shakes in a segment that he claimed reminded him to “be healthier.”

Thus far, both Freaky Friday transformation videos are at the top of YouTube’s Trending page, with the Dolan Twins’ video at #1 and Star’s video at #2.

Noah Beck & Griffin Johnson under fire for “cancel culture” comments

TikTok stars Noah Beck and Griffin Johnson are taking heat from critics due to their divisive comments on “cancel culture,” as told during an episode of Johnson’s “Sway Way” podcast.

Also known as “call-out culture,” the term “cancel culture” has become a popular phrase in the past few years as social media has flourished, allowing users to highlight abuse, bad behavior, or other negative actions from people online.

When these bad behaviors are brought to light, the person responsible is usually called out, boycotted and ostracized, causing them to be publicly shamed and often ousted from their professional and social circles due to the resulting backlash.

“Cancel culture” itself is a divisive term, with many believing that it outright doesn’t exist, as those being “canceled” deserve to be called out for their actions and that those who are “canceled” are never truly brought to justice from the outrage.

Still, others feel that “cancel culture” is going too far and is resulting in a toxic online environment — but either way, people are no longer willing to abide bad behavior from anyone, and social media has given users a platform to speak up against things they consider to be unjust.

TikTokers and Sway House members Griffin Johnson and Noah Beck recently spoke out on the social phenomenon during an episode of the Sway Way podcast — and their thoughts on the subject have sparked quite a bit of backlash against them.

“People are getting canceled for things that were totally acceptable,” Beck said. “I don’t want to say that people have gotten really sensitive, but at the same time, they have, and it’s like… there were some things that were acceptable back then that people could say, now it comes back on them five, 10 years later.”

“I mean, I’ve done some things in my past where they come off as controversial today, but they weren’t that deep,” Beck continued, referencing his own controversial history on social media. “I can see why people think it’s a big deal now, but it’s like… I never thought I would have this platform. I never thought I would have this stage. I was growing up just playing soccer. I liked a few tweets, but I didn’t think anything of it at the time.”

Needless to say, both Beck and Johnson have received a substantial amount of criticism from listeners, with one user writing: “He really said that he never thought he would have gotten famous… so if you’re not famous, you can be homophobic and it’s not a big deal?”

Both boys have yet to speak out on the outrage, which only continues to grow in wake of their already storied history of sparking division among TikTok viewers.
