First Kylie Jenner now Jeffree Star feuds with Lady Gaga's Little Monsters

Good news, vitriolic YouTuber Jeffree Star may have finally met his match in Lady Gaga’s loyal fandom, the Little Monsters

Controversial YouTuber Jeffree Star has been embroiled in yet another online feud. This time it’s with Lady Gaga’s loyal fanbase, the Little Monsters, over Gaga’s newly launched make-up line Haus Laboratories. 

The feud started earlier this week when Star tweeted, “Everyone keeps asking me to review Lady Gaga's @haudlabs makeup!! It went on sale last night but they're not shipping until September... Ummmm”. Gaga fans, who are a dangerous bunch to cross, didn’t take kindly to what they thought was the blogger throwing shade at their idol and let him know. 

“It's called PRE-order darling. We love you so much so don't try it,” replied one fan, while another wrote, “it was pre order actually, clearly stated many times.”

“Jeffree, in order to get you to stop questioning Gaga and her new beauty brand, here’s the reason she had pre-order on 7/15,” added another with screenshots of Gaga at Amazon’s Prime Day. 

“Come for Gaga and ur Sub count gonna look like James after Tati,” threatened one fan, referring to the feud between James Charles and Tati that occurred earlier this year which saw Charles’s following drop by nearly three million over the course of a few days.

In response to the backlash, Star defended himself, tweeting that his comments were not indicative of his feelings towards Lady Gaga. “I know what a PRE-ORDER is.. I just don’t like launches where we customers have to wait several months, the product should be available immediately when you’re at that level of success but that’s just my opinion. Doesn’t mean I don’t love Gaga, take a deep breath!!!”

This incident comes only a few weeks after Star caused drama with Kylie Jenner’s fans when he said in a review of her new Kylie Skin products, that the face wipes were “drier than the f*cking Mojave Desert. I’ll be honest – cause I have six dogs. So I could use those to clean up sh*t.”

If you are unfamiliar with Star, he has a history of beef with beauty brands and bloggers and of directing derogatory and hateful comments towards pretty much everyone. Videos of Star telling a woman to “shut up you fucking n***** bitch...you’re a n***** you ugly ass bitch” and calling a person of colour an ape are easily found on the internet, and he has been reported to have called fellow YouTuber Jackie Aina a “gorilla” and said he wanted to throw battery acid on a black woman to lighten her skin to match her foundation. He has also repeatedly used the C-word when referring to women.

In 2016, longtime friend Kat von D posted a video in which she cut ties with Starr, accusing him of bullying and racism and of not paying an artist for the logo and artwork designed for Star’s eponymous make-up collection. “After years of making excuses for, and rationalizing Jeffree's inappropriate behavior (including, promoting drug use, racism, and bullying) I can no longer hold my tongue after recent events,” von D said

Despite posting an apology video in 2017, Star’s has continued to use racist language. Last year, Starr’s former hairstylist Daved Anthony Munoz, shared screenshots of text messages allegedly sent by Starr in which he again uses the N-word and calls Jackie Aina a “gorilla.” In response, Aina posted a statement on Twitter saying, in part, “I have not and will not excuse his blatantly racist behaviour – nor his past references to me in derogatory terms, his continued use of the N word, nor his efforts to eliminate spaces and opportunities for people of colour.”

We stan the Little Monsters!
