We always hold our favorite celebrities on a pedestal, but the YouTube celebrities get placed on an even higher one. This is because they don’t have an army of managers, agents and PR People around them controlling their every move. Sure, some of them will probably employ a few of those people down the road, but at the end of the day, it’s still the YouTuber, in front of a camera, talking to us and interacting with us on social media as well. So in a sense, they’re more we see them more than celebrities, we see them as our friends.
Before I go any further I need to make it clear that no one who ever walked this earth except Jesus Christ Himself is perfect. Every single last one of us has made mistakes; we’ve all done and said cruel things. I know if I ever become relevant, there will surely be something from my past that will come up. No, I can’t think of anything, but I’ sure someone else will (once again if I ever become relevant). But I pray that I will have the strength to own up to any mistakes and not make excuses.
So, what does this have to do with the Beauty Community on YouTube? Well, if you watch these videos from MarkLovesTea, Petty Paige, Panicked Antics, Beauty Truth Sleuth, Tea Spill and many more Channels, then you’ll know, thanks to Beauty Guru Gabriel Zamora running his big mouth about Jeffree Star, Gabriel accidentally exposed himself in the process. With him, Laura Lee and Nikita Dragun were also exposed. (I highly suggest you watch these videos for the real tea. Let me tell you, this tea is HOT!)
But let’s be honest, we’ve been seeing the ugly side of Beauty Gurus for quite some time. From Kathleenlights dropping an offensive racist word to Jackie Ania lying about Petty Paige hacking her personal bank account and more, the Beauty Community seems to have been crumbling for quite some time. So, what do we, as the viewers, do about it? Or can we do anything? Do we have any say in this?
I don’t want this blog to go on for too long, so Part 2 should be up on Friday at the latest. I’m just afraid if I blab on for too long I’ll lose you. So, I end it here for now and conclude it in a few days. Until then, thank you for reading and I hope you’ll continue to stick around!
