Longtime YouTube star Shane Dawson rocked the online beauty community with the release of his new series “The Beautiful World of Jeffree Star” – but fans noticed that a major component was missing from the documentary.

Before his series went live, Dawson teased his reaction to the drama surrounding beauty guru James Charles, who was the center of a worldwide scandal after being “exposed” by mentor Tati Westbrook in early May.

Although Dawson’s trailer included his signature “shocked” expression to the news, the drama itself was never featured in his latest series – something he later explained in a lengthy Instagram Live video on November 7.

According to Dawson, he’d actually created three episodes covering the scandal, but chose not to include the issue for fear of damaging the reputations of those involved, claiming that all parties had moved on from the blowup.

“The message is egos, jealousy, entitlement, narcissism, and everything you could imagine in the beauty world in one thing by all the people at the same time,” Dawson explained. “And they all, I think, realized that. …I think everyone has grown immensely from that situation.”

Shane Dawson and Jeffree Star’s collaborative collection, “Conspiracy,” sold out in the blink of an eye.

That’s not all: Shane likewise admitted to regretting including the issue in his trailer, and claimed that Charles had expressed apprehension at having to potentially deal with mass backlash, yet again.

“I should’ve never put the drama in the trailer,” he continued. “I shouldn’t have done that, but I did it because I thought that’s what the series was. So now, I feel kind of stuck because I don’t want people to think that I am a fraud or that I lied.”

While the YouTuber initially thought his audience would only be interested in the drama, it turns out that much of the internet is going gaga over the business side of the industry – so much so, that his collaboration with Star completely sold out shortly after going live.

Having curated one of the most successful moments of his career, Dawson is flying high, leaving one of YouTube’s biggest scandals in the past – likely, for the better.

Twitch star Jadeyanh had a terrifying night after a stalker kept harassing her by ordering food and even calling the police to her house.

The Germany-based streamer has quite an audience on the platform boasting over 200,000 followers. Now, it seems like one of them has begun to harass the Twitch personality.

During a November 23 broadcast, the streamer’s door began to ring prompting her to go answer it. While she didn’t take the camera with her, she soon revealed food she never ordered was delivered.

“Okay, I guess you’re watching,” she began, addressing her stalker directly. “I have a stalker and that person keeps ordering food for me. This is now the third time the person did that. Officially, please stop doing that.”

As it turns out, the individual had previously ordered 25 pizzas and had them delivered to Jadeyanh’s house.

“I’m shaking. I haven’t left my apartment in days because I’m terrified of doing my groceries,” she added. “So please, stop doing that. I feel like I’m in a prison.”

The streamer went on to explain that her neighbor, who is also a follower, sometimes opens up her packages without her consent. Now, she has another follower who is harassing her with food.

As she took a sip of her drink, her doorbell started ringing so she got up to answer it, but couldn’t bring herself to open the door because the light outside wasn’t on.

Eventually, right before Jadeyanh ended the stream, firefighters showed up at her door because someone told them there was a gas leak and then the police were coming.

“I don’t know who the f**k you are, but it’s your number you called them with and we’re going to get your f**king ass, you dumbass!” she exclaimed. “What the f**k is wrong with you? 25 pizzas! Twenty f**king five!”

At this point, Jadeyanh was so distressed she decided to end the stream, but soon after on Twitter revealed that since she did, six more deliveries have come for her.

“I was stalked when I was living with my grandparents. I’m being stalked in my new apartment after only 2 months of living here. I just want to rest. I’m so tired of everything,” she said in a follow-up tweet.

Hopefully, the police can get to the bottom of this so the streamer can finally start to feel safe again and not have her broadcasts ruined by stalkers.
