Beauty guru Jeffree Star has hit out at the online e-commerce platform Wish for allowing his brand to be used to promote counterfeit makeup cosmetics.

Jeffree Star has built a massive online following with over 18 million subscribers on YouTube for his beauty guides and entertaining makeup videos.

The popular YouTuber has also released his own line of cosmetics, ‘Jeffree Star Cosmetics’, which have been a massive hit, even collaborating with fellow creator Shane Dawson on one of his eyeshadow palettes, Conspiracy.

Jeffree Star has hit out at Wish for selling fake JSC products.

Shortly after the release of his new collection on May 22, however, it was revealed that counterfeit products featuring his brand were being sold on Wish’s marketplace.

After discovering that even some of his photos were being used to promote these fake JSC palettes, Jeffree called on Wish to remove the listings from the site and to stop featuring them in their advertisements.

“Hey Wish can you please take down & stop promoting + selling counterfeit JSC palettes?” he asked, sharing an image of the product in a Wish Facebook ad.

Star said it was even worse that they had used his images to sell the fake palettes and that the ingredients used were probably “horrible”.

“And using my own images to sell it is so low. I don’t even wanna know what horrible ingredients are in these products,” he continued.

Wish has now responded to Jeffree’s claims, after much backlash from his fans, confirming that they are currently investigating the suspicious listings.

Star has also recently fired back at critics of his new make-up line after concerns were raised when he announced his new products would be titled the ‘Cremated Collection’.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
