A since deleted tweet from Shane Dawson regarding the online beauty world has caused backlash from Twitter users.
The tweet itself sent Twitter into a frenzy, but since being deleted Shane’s tweet has kicked up even more of a storm with the online community.
Shane joined the beauty world when he launched a make-up collaboration with Youtuber and Beauty Guru, Jeffree Starr, and took to Twitter to give his thoughts on the drama.
What did Shane’s tweet say?
On June 20th, Shane Dawson released a large tweet voicing his thoughts and opinions on the drama within the beauty world, as well as saying he was “done” with it.
Shane began by saying that the conspiracy palette was one of the best experiences of his life but that the one thing he “learned” from the experience was:
“The beauty gurus who are ALWAYS involved in scandals are ALL THE F***ING SAME.”
Mentioning the infamous James Charles and Tati Westbrook feud, Shane apologised for using the drama between the two gurus in his trailer for his make-up palette.
“I’m really sorry to Tati and James if me putting their drama in the series at all felt like I was reopening up wounds.”
Shane finished by writing: “As for my channels, I’m done with the beauty world. I love what I was able to create with Jeffree and I’m sure people are going to assume I only did it for money but that’s not true . I am just choosing to no longer be a part of that world.”
How did fans react on Twitter?
Several Twitter users claimed that Shane was “flaunting his sensitivity as a shield” while others wrote that the tweet was essentially Shane “complaining that getting exposed is stressful for him.”
Others said that the hate was unnecessary, with one tweeting: “If you don’t like Shane Sawson or Jeffree Star please just leave them alone. Tweeting hate is unnecessary. Please just stay silent if you don’t like someone.”
