Shane Dawson & Jeffree Star: Breaking The Internet

Shane Dawson & Jeffree Star: Breaking The Internet

welcome back in in today’s video
shane dawson and jeffree star just released a highly anticipated makeup and
merchandise release collaboration thing they released two eyeshadow palettes one
called conspiracy and another called mini controversy and a collection of
lipstick shades as well as a line of shane dawson merchandise and they
released this on jibberish stars website merch website killer merch needless to
say it broke the internet let’s talk about it today in exploring youtubers
everyone knows that shane dawson documentaries break record numbers and
throwing Geoffrey star into the mix is just a recipe for something we’ve
probably never seen before but the past month Shane Dawson has been releasing
installments in a series titled the beautiful world of Jeffries star each of
his five episodes were around an hour and leaf collectively and have more than
90 million views which is pretty crazy not only were these videos hyped around
Geoffrey star but the videos also serve as a massive promotion for the Shane
Dawson’s collection following its creation from start to finish now it’s
important to note that the build up around these products was absolutely
perfect as Jeffrey stars one of the biggest beauty gurus and he has had
several highly successful makeup launches and most recently has been in
the middle of some pretty drama fuelled controversies as well as past
controversies that seem to have added to the anticipation this paired with Shane
Dawson releasing something that he’s jokingly teased about in the past with
an astoundingly high interest from fans and his own similar past pickles very
similar to what Jeffrey stars went through as converted itself into
successfully one of the greatest advertising campaigns ever seen it all
launched Friday November 1st to 2019 it was so popular that the website stopped
working due to high amounts of traffic in the server and it caused Shopify to
glitch out leaving shoppers Shane Dawson and Jeffrey star very upset Shane Dawson saying I’m so sorry guys
we’re trying everything right now a retweet from Geoffrey star saying you
guys crashed the site Shane’s in a ball crying on the floor working on getting
everything back another tweet saying I’m so sorry my heart is breaking I don’t
know what to do but Jeffrey’s team and the Shopify team have been doing
everything they can we’re all in the room pulling our hair
out to make this work this is what a lot of people were getting thanks for your
order we’re getting a lot of orders right now you should receive
confirmation by email or text saying if you don’t receive it next hour let us
know due to an unexpected technical problem jeffree star cosmetics comm is
temporarily unavailable please check back in a few minutes another I just
screamed in a conference call and now I’m crying because I feel bad that I
screamed it’s been a rough two hours some people were angry saying things
like this is so frustrating Shopify I’ve literally been trying to spend $425 on
makeup for over an hour Shane Dawson Geoffrey start at this
point I’m not even sure I want it anymore
some we’re jelly bellies jealous of those that had already gotten their
products me seeing people actively checking out and even ordering multiple
palates other people had more luck going to physical locations but it soon went
around that they were also selling out I went to more from the bundles mirrors
half the lipsticks and bags were sold completely out it was supposed to be a
week’s worth of products mmm but if you got lucky you got to see Shane Dawson’s
mom racing to get her son’s new product even crazier is that since all this was
sold out there were actually people that knew and anticipated that this was gonna
be a big launch and actually sold some on eBay current bids at the time were
pretty high but while all this was taking place something else was
happening on Twitter that’s right you guessed it kpop stands in additionally we had those completely
confused about what they were talking about with confusion comes the pretzel a
channel and I know I’m glad that you’ve asked these questions and since it’s
relevant to how they broke the internet we’re going to explain to you what does
fire fueled kpop stands we’re talking about in why do you remember MySpace me
neither but it’s where Jeffrey star amassed a cult following along with
accusations of being our word he used his following to somewhat create a music
career that stalled and eventually led him into cosmetics fast forward now and
he’s one of the most important influential beauty gurus in the
community Jeffrey star was previously known for his deep friendship and feud
with Kat Von D who is a reality television star makeup and tattoo artist
after they fell out he developed a very public friendships with other gurus such
as Laura Lee meny mu a indicated dragon they’re featured on one another’s
channels and Jeffrey started mainly collaborated on a collection for
Jeffrey’s makeup line but like Kat Von D they had a falling out and many people
wasn’t sure why this was mirrored when Jeffrey star said with my ex friends
people still don’t really know what went on in that four part hugely popular
youtube series also shot by youtuber Shane Dawson the first part of the
series called the secret world Jeffrey star has more than 46 million views
currently now this also plays a part into like how they broke the internet
and I guess his old friends saw this and they didn’t like it and unto much
youtuber Gabriel Zamora tweeted bringing up Jeffrey’s past stating imagine
staining our word following up with saying honey every time I was around him
he would say something bar word about black people and I know what you’re
thinking where did Gabriel Zamora come from in this situation while I asked
around apparently he likes to hop into controversies at random I’m not I’m not
sure Kat Von D had made similar accusations that Geoffrey was far word
they obtained prompting a 15 minute video from Jeffrey star where he talked
about his past and how he was very apologetic for the things that he said
and did hmm and I have talked about this before on myspace back in the day I have
addressed this on snapchat I have talked about this on Twitter in the past but
that is not good enough because for everyone out there that supports me that
believes in me I owe you the truth and I owe you an apology I am so sorry for my
words I am so sorry for everything that I’ve said in my past I can never turn
back time and take those moments away they happened I have owned up with them
and I have lived with it for a long time and every time that they get read rag
Doug it just makes me just sad because I
don’t know who that person was Shane Dawson had to also apologize for passion
or word but after appearing in blackface in a couple of his earlier YouTube
videos and you can see they have sort of a shared past and this is what the kpop
stands we’re talking about as for why well that’s uh the kpop stands that’s
that’s their thing so to me it’s pretty obvious how they broke the internet just
an accumulation of years in the making and Pat pickles that push them further
farther faster when you get to huge internet icons together like this
each highly successful in their respective fields and you just kind of
put them together and they’re massive communities add a little bit of intense
build-up and you have a force to be reckoned with almost as powerful as the
kpop stands but as interesting as is there’s always sense of or interest to
me that’s right you guessed it I wonder – thanks which good leave your creative
interesting responses in the comment box there’s always brothers and sisters I
will see you in the next video so I did a thing this was the first time that I
ever wrote my script on the computer and I’m getting ready to do my blog top
thing I’ve been talking about at East earlier but I’m gonna go ahead and I’m
doing it on like a Google Doc so we’ll have
all references and links and everything like that and I’m putting I’m guess I’m
uploading it I did upload it to my patreon as like a little added extra
plus thing and I don’t know if this is the thing I’m gonna continue to do but I
thought it was cool for people to kind of get to be able to read the script
before the video actually came out so I thought that was interesting so if you
guys enjoyed this video uh thanks but uh if you have any other
topics that you want me to talk about just let me know in the comments section
below give anything about this video and specific that you want to reach out it’s
a little bit more then then the comment then a I don’t know I’m trying to say
just reach out to me in the Twitter don’t forget we’re trying to get the
instagrams twelve thousand followers work at eleven that eleven thousand
point two we’re almost there I guess I’m gonna do you a on that we we
released a a new piece of merch from artist ghost chili it’s called the ghost
chili rip shirt you need to check it out this is it right here the ghost chili
rip trap linty that’s really hot quality by the way and I got mine in the mill on
the way but look at this design it is the coolest I mean I got it you can get
it in multiple different products you can get it in the pillow I think you’d
even get it in like a fleece blanket but I got my shirt on the way and I’m very
excited it’s a piece of art that was done by ghost chili on instagram you
guys I’m gonna put her link into the description below so you guys go give
her some love because she did a really good job here also I want to say I want
to thank my patrons I’m gonna put my patreon at the end of the video and this
video in specific I want to dedicate it to Donna Scott she got the hundred
dollar tear on the patreon first one that’s ever done that I really
appreciate the support Donna means a lot and would that be I said I know that
you’re repping for arrogant had you the augur to subscribe notification I’ll be
in the kamasutra to every single video because I’m gonna be there great the
cat’s gonna be there and the rest of us welcomed me as well and I expect to see
it through to cut back this channel love I messed up that too much coffee

  • Oh FFS….. I wish people would be this passionate and involved in saving the planet instead of some shitty make- up made in some pollution spewing factory….
    At least I have Team trees, Repzilla, Greg the cat and Hope for Paws to show that the Internet is not just a cesspool of money hungry frauds conning kids out of their allowances.

  • Honestly I don’t understand why so many people are buying into their marketing plan lol. They’ve got everyone so hyped over makeup. It’s just makeup and I guarantee tons of other brands will look just as good on your face. Making rich people more rich! Yay!

  • I'm not huge on hype of product releases (even though I've been a "fan"/subscriber of Jeffree Star since the Myspace days), but I'd have to say that the anticipation and marketing of these were GENIUS….
    The racism stuff is something Jeffree has apologized for multiple times….. People aren't infallible. As we get older, we learn. Also, back in the Myspace days, people weren't so quick to be offended… I mean, it's the reason why comedians have apologized for JOKES from years past…
    #justsayin #repsquad #gregsquad 🦖❤💛

  • Do you remember myspace? Me neither 👀💀
    As for JS's past, every one has done or said something ignorant or controversial, no one is a saint. The only thing that matters is that you learn from it and grow. Dont try to crucify someone for what they did a decade ago, they arent the same person.
    Now excuse me, I have to find a socially acceptable place to screech! thankyou so much this is so awesome 👕!!

  • Marissa Clifford says:

    Yaaay, best part of my night watching this video! I'm so proud of you! I've always been highly excited about Shane making the makeup pallets then selling it! Omg, I missed the kpop stans tweets! Congrats on writing this on the computer, you've been doing amazing! 😁😊💓💓💓💓💜

  • Why is no one talking about how they havent yet shown the james charles drama or even said that they decided not to have it in, it was one of the reasons I even watched this series

  • I got mine today they are so much better in person. Not only did we crash JSC and Shopify we crashed Morphe and Beautylish for a time.

  • Very cool Donna, I wish I could support Rep like that. Rep that was a great video. It took all day before I could finally get on the Jeffree website to see everything was sold out. But that's ok. Also, I think everybody has regret in their past. They did shitty stuff but owned up to it. I think success makes people want to bring you down. But the past is in the past and I'm happy for Jeffree and especially Shane. It must have taken forever to edit all those videos. They were advertising masterpieces! Also, did you finish eating your cake?

  • My son was so upset he didn't get any merch. 😂 He's 8! I tried so hard while he was at school. I had to show him ss and it was still down when he got home from school.
    I saw real stream (CJ, Craig) is acting like onion boy. I've only seen medium rare who's a small growing channel and another one covering it! It's really disturbing!

  • First of all, thank you for promoting Ateez <3 they're really great boys and good artists as well and second… I enjoy Jeffree's and Shane's content, I laugh and have a good time watching them but I do not understand why some people idolize them this much I mean they're… they're literally just youtubers.

  • I'm happy that I was able to order the palette bundle and one lipstick 😩.

    And the same people who call Jeffree a racist today are the same people who were probably racist in the past and are trying to conceal that by trying to get woke points

  • It wasn't only that had issues, it was also, and that had waaaay too much traffic. This makes it even crazier. People were camping outside Morphe stores and it was overall just insane. Now I'm just waiting for them to drop the numbers.
    I'm so glad I got mine :')

  • I know someone who waited 5 1/2 hours just to shop in Morphe and get a chance to get things. Also heard there will be restocks.

  • Going All The Weigh says:

    I adore you but…please do not put all Kpop stans in the same group. There are Kpop stans and then there are netizens and sasaengs. They are not regular Kpop stans. They are cruel and horrible. They do not represent most Kpop stans.

  • In the minority by saying that is a fugly palette and I don't see the hype over it, but it's w/e. Let people spend their money how they want.

  • 07:16 how did it come to this though?… I remember we just used to kinda… be invested on our faves? and maybe fight each other and that’s about it? , Why do i now find kpop stans inserting themselves and their idols in every scandal that’s irrelevant to kpop and their idols… what the fuck!

  • I don’t think they’re racist. I think they both had an edgy sense of humor that aged like milk. 2009 and 2019 are VERY different years. It sucks that some people seem to be killing some styles of comedy very very slowly. It’s good to be alert of others’ sensibilities, but I think some people miss the mark when they try to label a comedian racist because his skit made fun of the concept of stereotypes.

  • I’m waiting on my palette every site crashed under the sheet traffic. Toke hours to be able to order mine but it’s 100% worth it so excited 😆

  • I do order JSC make up cause it is amazingly good quality. I also do believe they have grown and become better people, why would Gabriel hang around J⭐ if he was talking like that? Only speak up after he and the others fudged up… I don't believe Gabriel… I ordered the bundle with all make up and a bag & I also got a mirror & lipbalm, it took over an hour to get to checkout and I paid my stuff it said "your order has processed" or something like that and now I haven't gotten a confirmation email and I suspect I won't get my stuff now I emailed the JSC and got a "it can take up to six hours to get a confirmation email" but it had been over 24hours at that point and still no email & said "Jeffree Star replied

    Nov 2, 5:52pm (Finnish time so about 9am their time)

    Hey Maruzella,

    Please note it may take up to 6 hours for you to receive a confirmation email due to the amount of traffic on our site today. If you do not receive confirmation by this time, your order did not process. We suggest trying to make a new purchase! Unfortunately we are unable to honor orders that did not fully process.

    In the event you do not receive a confirmation email and a transaction is pending in your account, this is a hold placed by your bank for your attempted order. Since your orders didn't process, your money should be cleared to your account within a few business days. We recommend contacting your bank if you experience any further issues. This will affect every order placed today, including non-launch related products!

    We apologize for any inconveniences you may have experienced. If this did not answer your question, please recontact our team. Once again we are unable to process orders that didn't complete. Thank you for supporting Jeffree Star Cosmetics! ✨"

    So this answer leads me to believe that I won't be getting my order. Which sucks and I have anxiety over it cause if I didn't get it there are still palettes I can get from my local store that sells them, but if I happen to still get my stuff from JSC then I don't have the money to buy it 😭 anxiety sucks! And to have it due to make-up 🤦😬😣😭 still having anxiety even when I tell myself there will be a restock, there will be time to review it on my channel (I'm working on starting one like you helped me decide over on Instagram"

  • oh here they go again w/ the rac*st stuff that was said how long ago now?…people need to just stop, they bring this stuff up over, and over again…especially when it's a huge launch, people, and their jealousy is unbelievable…how many people have said stuff in this world, that they regret, pretty much everybody…he apologized…you live, and you learn…it's totally different if he was saying it now, yes I can see people going nuts over that, I bet these people are all high, and mighty, and have never said anything like that, it's pretty much that they were never caught saying it…I never said anything like that, but i had friends who did, and that was back when we were young, just like jeffree was at the time, should people be condemned for the rest of their lives for something that was said a long ass time ago…you are stupid when you're young…god how many people on this platform said it, and people still support them, it's only because of the launch they they are putting it out there once again…all I have to say is I'm happy for both jeffree, and shane, I'll never be able to afford that kind of stuff, plus I really don't wear makeup, I would like to have it just because it's shane's but I have to spend my money on bills, am I mad, hell no…shane has been on here forever it seems, and I watched him since the beginning, and for him to get screwed over like he did on a lot of things, it just makes me happy, that he finally got what he deserves, and jeffree helped him w/ that…but like I said people, and their jealousy will get them nowhere!! this world would be a better place if people just stopped w/ bringing shit up, they only do it for attention, and that is what makes me sick…I guess just like I should've never hung around w/ those same friends since they said that kind of stuff…get real…people make mistakes, and my friends I had since back then are no longer like that…people change, and that is something that is good, they know now how words can hurt other people, where a lot of times, you don't understand that until you get older! sorry for the rant, but it just pisses me off when people try to bring down others, for a lot that was done in their past, and try to get them cancelled, and want those views for attention, by saying oh this person is just a horrible role model, or someone to look up to, when I guess everyone else is, I hate the world that we live in now, that you can't say what you mean, or mean what you said…and I'm not saying anything about even the rac*st's everything, everyone gets so butthurt over this stuff which is just unnecessary, and it's the generation, w/ each one it gets worse…they grew up only to be pu**ies , and can't stand that other people have opinions that aren't their own, and like I said, you say one thing, and people go completely crazy over it…everyone is entitled to their own opinion, instead of walking around like sheep, and just commenting what people have put before them, just so they can be liked, even though it isn't something they even believe in, but they just want to follow that herd…sorry again…it's just makes me wonder how this world is going to be, even 10 years from now, it will be even worse. I heard a song that says one day I swear honesty is going to be illegal, and I really do believe that, just from how I grew up, until now…I mean look at movies ,and everything now, oh this shouldn't be out there, because people are going to go on rampages after seeing it ,and kill people..sorry to say screwed up people are going to kill people, it isn't the movies, music, or video games, all of us grew up w/ all this stuff but yet most didn't go out, and do these things, and even people w/ mental issues already, didn't go, and do it…people saying they are triggered by stuff, but then they watch it anyway..well that's on them..they give warnings all over the place now on everything…simply don't watch it, if it might trigger you in the slightest, but don't bitch and moan about it, and try to make something obsolete, because you can't handle it, plain, and simple!

  • Redrose Setantii says:

    I know why I wanted to buy their palette. It wasn't just for the makeup, even though I do love the colour choices cause, being over 50, I'm so done with nudes 🤣🤷‍♀️. I wanted it for the same reason I wanted a wand after falling in love with the whole Harry Potter story; it is to feel part of the story, and, to own something that is connected to something that has never been done before.. Nobody is going to forget the build up, the business side being shown, the friendships that grew from it all, and all the highs and lows, the ruthless side of the beauty community.. The whole thing has been put together so professionally, and it's such a clever idea.. and it's not over yet! Now people have the makeup in their hands, the general public have become part of the story.. that's pretty cool, if not genius.

  • Can I just point out, the kpop stans being nasty don’t represent the majority of us. Some kpop stans are scary and are paid no mind to even by fellow kpop stans.

  • Fatin Nursyafiqah says:

    I'm in a weird state of being both surprised and not surprised when I see that K-pop crazy stans have gotten involved. 🤦🏻‍♀️

  • _.funktionality._ says:

    I am the only person who doesn't really care about pallets, and don't follow Jeffrey star. Nothing that i have something against him, just it is not for me. I'm here Repin'n'Gregin 😸💜💜💜

  • Jimin Has No Jams says:


    The pallet and the full collection will eventually be restocked. Do not let some asshole on eBay take advantage of you because you want it now. You don't NEED it now. You can wait.

  • I literally never hear Gabriel Zamora's name except for when he just pops out of the shadows to instigate internet drama. He's like some kind of drama fairy.

  • Philip Chandler says:

    I bet onion boy is saltier than the dead sea, because Shane is getting way more attention and success than he ever is & will ever get lol. Onion even wrote about it on his diary how shitty he thinks Shane and Jeffree's make up pallet is…… except that's not what millions of other people think. 😛

  • Thank you for covering something fun and light today 🙂 I couldn’t get my hands on one of these, so I’m waiting for the restock…maybe the third restock 😂 I feel like the second restock will also break the internet

  • real tea: if someone is making an effort to do good and better themselves by taking each situation and learning from their mistakes.. like actually making a conscious effort, then i think they deserve a chance to prove themselves and be forgiven.
    forgiveness is not forgetting. it is letting a person have the chance to be good, a chance we all deserve i like to think.
    and if we dont, then we are our own blame as to why people dont try to appease those affected by their misdoings. why should they try to right their wrong if we do not let them have that ground to make the steps to take in order to do that?
    if people dont make the effort to be a good person, then thats on them and dont get forgiven, thats on them, but this isnt that, and we need to remember that these are real people and everyone has needed to be forgiven at least once in their life, we are all trying to do our best at the end of the day.
    but maybe im crazy for not being another yelling angry person, but thats ok with me tbh

  • I can't with Kpop Stans, anyone nowadays will look for any bad thing a white person has done, especially racist remarks to hate them now, despite growth and apologies. They act like their bands are the best, like they're treated so well and nothing can ever hurt their bands, but in reality they are the most hardworking people, and are usually forced to work long hours and have been seen vomiting and fainting on stage. So you're telling me, because Shane Dawson made mistakes 10 years ago, that he's worse then you're band that's forced to perform nearly nightly for a year? I'll stick to my sensitive shane

  • Adriana Lambert says:

    Im so happy for Shane and Jeffree for their epic launch! I wish i was able to get mine and am really looking forward for the restock 😍

  • Loving the upbeat outlook on this topic. This product launch reveals how sometimes people can underestimate how heavy the demand might be for their products! I have no doubt that if you released hair products you'd be surprised how well they'd sell. Also, noticed "A Viewer" asked why you haven't more black people featured in your videos. Keeping things positive, why not explore cool, successful youtubers to continue dialogues in the constructive, supportive harmonious way you are so beautifully known for. I'd love to see you start with "Self Love Ambassador" Derek Jaxn, who inspires so many in such a cool, funny way. You could also promote unknown, beginning youtubers with worthwhile topics and cool quirks. Your positive vibe is so wonderful! Love you Rep & Greg!

  • Cassidy Thompson says:

    I was unable to snag the conspiracy palette due to Morphe, Beautylish, Beauty Bay, and Shopify crashing. I was able to get the mini controversy palette and lip balm 4 hours later. 😁

  • I'm a little sad that after waiting 2 hours for my card info to load on the site for it to crash and have someone take the jacket out of my cart

  • Could you please do a video about a kpop boy group called MonstaX. One of the members left the group, not only him but other kpop idols were also targeted, there’s also other things that happened that may be related to the situation. Its so confusing. They have been trending one twitter for days.

  • Kathryn Daignault says:

    You dont remember Myspace? I'm 27 and that was just as relevant as Facebook/Instagram/Twitter, ect is today and that was almost 15 years ago. How young are you?!?!

  • Octobervengeance says:

    Happy about Shane and Jeffree’s collab. Not sure why certain Kpop Stan’s are acting weird about Shane and Jeffree. People like that are why Kpop fans have a bad reputation. It makes the good fans look bad and I hate it. Speaking of Kpop though, what do you think about what’s happening with Starship Entertainment and MONSTA X? There’s a lot going in within the story and the fans coming together to try to stand up for a member of the group and have been trending on twitter for 3+ days. It’s kind of cool cuz internationally fans are coming together and taking shifts to show support. Korea goes to sleep, USA wakes up and takes over. Anyway I don’t think there’s enough reliable sources covering the topic in full and it would be cool to see what you have to say about it

  • Becca ThyBloodRedSandman Taylor says:

    I can't stand shane dawson. I couldn't from day 1. I know my friend keeps telling me he redeemed himself. I guess its just me. I feel that way about Paul Stanley and George Clooney too.

  • I about died when you sipped you're drink and said kpop stans 😵😂

    I am a kpop stan but it's all true, Twitter ones are especially vicious

  • You are such a trip…and I mean that with all due affectii9on….. Tou are my favorite Youtube personality…..with the esception of certain musicians on here…..of the Blackened Metal, and Blackened Hip-Hop variety……You are it, hon….Cheers, dear/…

  • As a kpop fan
    I can say the kpop fans on Twitter are the worst (not all of them)
    I’m disgusted at the fans sometimes
    I always wish all of us will be a family but some of them are so toxic
    It makes me upset and uncomfortable but mostly scared because some of them are stalking the kpop idols etc etc

  • It wasn’t just kpop idiots, pretty much every single tweet I saw about Jeffree or Shane was trying to cancel them. Dumbasses don’t know shit about them

  • Can you investigate what happened to the YouTuber tristan paredes! He has almost 2 million subs and went off the map a month ago. All his social media is dark and no one seems to care

  • I wanted the whole collection. Jeffree Star's formula is in my opinion the best. Luscious. I had a palette in the cart but ended up with nothing. I will wait. The colours speak to me. I can wait.
