A British tarot card reader believes that she predicted the downfall of Jeffree Star and Shane Dawson in a YouTube video uploaded 9 months ago.

In the last few weeks, criticism of Jeffree Star and Shane Dawson has reached a critical point. The pair have faced many controversies since Shane released his documentary “The secret world of Jeffree Star” in 2018, and since Dramageddon 2.0 in 2019. But in June, tea channel exposés started to gain significant momentum.

In June, micro-influencer Kameron Lester accused both YouTubers of manipulating him. Despite Shane Dawson’s apologies, rants, and denials, numerous accusations of racism, manipulation, and even pedophilia, have surfaced and culminated in Dawson losing millions of subscribers on his YouTube channel.

To add the fire, Tati Westbrook, a beauty YouTuber involved in Dramageddon, released a video alleging that Shane Dawson and Jeffree Star had masterminded her feud with James Charles in 2019.

Meanwhile, cosmetics company Morphe has cut ties with Shane Dawson, and some beauty fans have pledged to boycott Morphe until they do the same with Jeffree Star. YouTube has also demonetized all three of Shane Dawson’s YouTube Channels.

In September 2019, Angie Hewitt appeared to have predicted this slew of dramatic events with a tarot card reading. For Shane, Angie predicted that he would enter a “dark and confusing time”, and that he would react in haste, making the problems worse for himself. In the video, she says: “Shane’s going to be really frustrated by the reaction from the public or the reaction behind the scenes.”

In the video, Angie also predicts that Shane “Might lash out or say the wrong thing”, pertaining to his Twitter outburst, where he denied orchestrating the feud between Tati and James, and his subsequent video “Taking Accountability”, which left fans unsatisfied by his apology.

Angie believes that she also predicted that Jeffree would move house, that he would have long term difficulties due to current events. Right now, it appears that Jeffree is “uncancelable”, as predicted by Angie in the video who said that Jeffree would stand to gain more than Shane. She firmly notes that the cards show “underhand behavior and deception on Jeffree’s part” and “pain that goes on for a long time.”

Angie also predicted that Shane Dawson and Jeffree Star’s friendship would end, and that Jeffree would publicly distance himself from Shane. But Jeffree Star’s company Killer Merch has recently announced that they will be restocking Shane’s hoodies again. Any real separation of friendship between the two remains to be seen.

Charli D’Amelio slams “out of control” hate from 100m followers scandal

TikTok star Charli D’Amelio is hitting back at the intense criticism she received after joking about not reaching 100 million followers in a year, as well as the hate that followed her tearful Instagram Live on the subject.

Charli D’Amelio is TikTok’s most-followed content creator. Now boasting over 101 million followers, Charli has become the poster girl for the viral video application — but not everyone is a fan of the internet superstar.

The 16-year-old influencer got hit with an avalanche of negativity upon the release of a “Dinner with the D’Amelio’s” episode on November 16, where she appeared to jokingly bemoan not reaching 100 million followers in a year’s time.

The issue quickly erupted into a scandal, with users calling out Charli for purportedly only seeing her fans as “numbers” and being ungrateful for her privileged position as a celebrity.

The hate soon spun into a hurricane of vile comments, with D’Amelio even revealing she’d been sent death threats from angry viewers during a tearful Instagram live addressing the situation. She even lost 1 million followers over the ordeal.

She has discussed the matter yet again in a solo December 3 episode of her ‘2 Chix’ podcast sans sister Dixie D’Amelio, hitting back at the shocking amount of hate she received over the scandal.

“The thing that I think happened was, it spiraled completely out of control,” she said of the situation. “It turned into a place where I was getting threats for my life. When talking about this on Live, I got emotional, because that’s not something that people take lightly.”

“I feel like people really have to understand that yes, I do have a substantial amount of people that follow me on social media,” she continued. “That does not mean that I am not a person. …The entire situation was taken completely out of proportion by lots of people.”

“I know I’m not a disrespectful person. I know that I’m not a genuinely horrible person. I know I’m a good person, at the end of the day. Whether or not everyone agrees with that is for them to figure out, and that’s totally fine.”

Charli’s podcast shines a light on the growing negativity from social media platforms like TikTok, which even bullied the likes of Taio Cruz off the website within just a few days of him creating an account.

This situation serves as an important reminder to remember that no matter the circumstances, there’s always another person behind your phone screen who your words are directly affecting — 100 million followers or not.
