Jeffree Star hits back at harassment after palette name controversy

YouTuber and makeup mogul Jeffree Star is hitting back at online harassment after catching flak for the name of his most recent eyeshadow palette — but it doesn’t look like he’s letting the haters bring him down.

Jeffree Star has long been a subject of contention among internet circles, with the beauty guru recently coming under scrutiny for his supposed involvement in the scandal against YouTuber James Charles in summer 2019.

Now, Star is facing criticism for the name of his latest eyeshadow palette (a name that we can’t publish here, for obvious reasons). With critics slamming Star for the label’s potential effect on younger makeup fans, he was met with backlash on all sides — even receiving some potential threats, as well.

In a series of Tweets published on August 24, Star claimed that he has received some seriously disturbing hate messages, some of which apparently even asked him to end his own life.

“I wonder if the people who constantly tell me to kill myself every minute of the day ever get tired or hungry?” he posed to the internet.

That’s not all; Star also dispelled rumors of paying off anyone he’s currently seeing, writing, “I know it’s devastating news for some people, but I don’t give money to anyone I’m dating or anyone who is f***ing me. Work on your own insecurities sis, I’m not the problem.”

Finally, Star ended his tangent with another quip: “Worry about how to pay your own bills, not who’s in my mouth. Thank you, God bless – Upper management.”

This continues Star’s unbothered attitude toward peoples’ opinions of him, a trend that has spanned his entire career, but became a point of contention following accusations of having orchestrated the drama against James Charles last year.

Showing off new images of him posing atop Louis Vuitton trunks and posted up on his private jet, Star seemed quite beyond the hate at the time — and while he had an explanation for his latest palette’s divisive name, isn’t going to give critics the satisfaction of renaming it.


6th Tony Lopez accuser comes forward amid his return to TikTok

A new accusation concerning Tony Lopez’s behaviour with minors has now gone viral, with TikTok user Noah claiming a 15-year-old girl has given him permission to share her account.

With accusations about Lopez building momentum across social media, the former Hype House star has continued to try and carry on with life as normal.

He recently returned to TikTok, creating dance videos and sharing day-to-day snapshots of his life, but it seems like his former fans are unwilling to let him forget accusations that easily.

TikToker Angry Reactions recently accused Lopez of deleting a comment he made regarding the accusations in one of his videos, while fellow Hype House member Larray referenced the claims in his highly-controversial diss track, ‘Canceled.’

Larray recently became embroiled in the situation after mentioning Lopez in his new track ‘Canceled’.

This led to Lopez hitting out at content creators for “using this situation for likes,” with TikTok Room later reporting that Tony Lopez liked a comment by a user criticising fans for “not letting [the situation] go.”

However, TikTok user Noah – who recently hit out at Larray ‘lying’ about contacting Tony Lopez’s accusers – has now uploaded a TikTok which he claims is part of his aim to help “victims that were groomed by Tony Lopez get their story out.” The full video was shared by drama account TikTok Insider.

Identifying the girl only as Valencia, Noah says that at the time of the incident with Lopez, she was only fifteen. He also points out that she had made a video about the claims before, but was accused of lying.

He explains that after her friend sent a message to Lopez as a joke, he responded and they started a conversation, with him quickly inviting her over to the Hype House that same night.

Implicating fellow TikToker Tayler Holder into the accusations, Noah claims that he was the one who answered the door and let Valencia into the house.

It is alleged that Tayler Holder answered the door to the minor when Lopez invited her to the Hype House.

“I can’t go into detail about what happened or this video will be taken down, but things did happen,” Noah said.

Noah also pointed out that he sent Valencia messages about wanting to have a threesome, which he argues is consistent with the way he spoke to the other accusers.

Noah also showed evidence of alleged messages Lopez sent the minor.

He also notes that the Snapchat account that sent the message is visually consistent with Lopez’s private Snapchat account that he has allegedly contacted other minors on.

Neither Lopez nor Holder has spoken out publicly about these claims. There is also information to suggest that Lopez will be prosecuted based on this latest allegation.
