Jeffree Star has hit back at Kourtney Kardashian’s son, Mason Disick, after the 10-year-old called him “spoiled AF” during an Instagram Q&A with TikTok star Addison Rae.

Jeffree Star has once again put the Kardashian family in his sights.

The YouTube beauty guru has taken aim at Kourtney’s 10-year-old son, Mason Disick, over comments about Star being “spoiled.”

Mason Disick was doing a Q&A on Instagram with TikTok star Addison Rae, when James Charles dropped a question asking “who’s Mason’s favorite beauty guru?”

While the 10-year-old admitted he doesn’t watch many make-up YouTubers, he shot a snide remark at Jeffree Star for being “spoiled.”

“I don’t really watch makeup YouTubers, but I think James [Charles] maybe? He’s really nice,” Kourtney’s oldest son said. “Jeffree Star is, like, spoiled AF.”

It wasn’t the comment about the best YouTuber that got to Star, but rather the “spoiled” one. He responded to the 10-year-old, saying that he was “confused with his own privilege.”

“I had $500 in my bank account six years ago,” Star said in a now-deleted tweet. “Maybe he’s confused with his own privilege versus mine being self-made, hopefully his father can educate him soon.”

The tweet got the attention of plenty of Star’s fans, who also jumped to his defense.

The 34-year-old professes on all platforms that his fortunes on social media ⁠— including almost 18 million YouTube subscribers, 16 million Instagram followers, over 7 million Twitter followers ⁠— were all garnered through hard work, not off the back of his parents.

Kourtney Kardashian deleted her son’s account shortly after the Instagram videos went viral, mentioning she doesn’t want her son exposed to social media just yet.

“I think on Instagram, the thing that really worries me with kids is just comments,” she said in her own video. “People can be so mean. It’s really easy to get consumed with it. I just feel it’s not the time.”

Instagram’s terms of use also states that account holders must be over the age of 13 to use the platform.

On October 26, Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg responded to a glitch that omitted his YouTube channel from searches a few days before. The bug sparked widespread speculation that he had been “shadowbanned” by Google.

The YouTube community was rocked on October 19 when rumors began to spread that the platform’s largest content creator, PewDiePie, had been shadowbanned. However, it was quickly clarified to be a bug and his account was fixed.

The Swede addressed the drama in his first video back since the glitch. While the star believed that people were too quick to jump to conclusions about him being banned, he did have questions for Google as to why his channel was the only one affected.

Fans of the personality became concerned on October 19 when his channel disappeared from searches on YouTube. His latest video tanked in views as no one could see it without a direct link. Google then released a statement and said it was an error before fixing his channel hours later.

Responding to the incident, Pewds revealed that he didn’t think he was shadowbanned as his account had been having issues for days. “People started noticing my video wasn’t getting any views. And it just went everywhere. There was a bunch of news for it!” he said, before he joked, “Shadow ban! They creep from the shadows and they ban you!”

Despite not being overly concerned, Kjellberg did find it peculiar that it mainly impacted his channel and nobody else’s. “I didn’t think they shadowbanned me, I just assumed it was a glitch. But it begs the question, how does that happen? How did it happen? It didn’t happen to anyone else. I asked around.”

The popular entertainer later joked about YouTube trying to explain the glitch, after reacting to a fan submission on Reddit. “We shadowbanned our biggest creator! Yeah, yeah it was weird. It was weird, what in the world,” he said.

To add salt to the wound, Pewds celebrated his birthday on October 24, but instead of well wishes from fans, his subreddit was flooded with users concerned that he had been shadowbanned by Google. It should also be stated there is no confirmation that the company even does bans in this manner.

At the time of writing, the star’s account is back to normal, and his uploads are getting millions of views again. If nothing else, the incident shows just how many people love the 31-year-old entertainer. Viewers were quick to rally together for the content creator – further proof that Kjellberg is the king of the platform.
