  • Beauty guru Jeffree Star has been promoting his upcoming "Blood Lust" makeup collection launch, but the promotional photos include a shot of him wearing dreadlocks and laid edges. 
  • Both styles are traditionally worn by people of color and associated with Black hairstyles, and Star was quickly criticized for cultural appropriation, including by another beauty YouTuber.
  • Star, who has had to apologize for racist remarks in the past, has not addressed the criticism – but he uploaded Instagram and Snapchat stories of himself wearing cornrows, another traditional Black style.

The front page currently advertises the upcoming "Blood Lust" makeup collection, and it shows beauty mogul Jeffree Star perched on a throne wearing purple-tinged dreadlocks with laid edges – two hair techniques traditionally associated with Black hairstyles.

Star, who is no stranger to controversy, is now being criticized for cultural appropriation. In this case, he's directly marketing a product using a Black hairstyle he never usually wears.

11选5精准杀号法Beauty YouTuber Jen Luvs Reviews was one of the largest voices for the dreadlocks and laid edges, writing on Twitter that "Even if you don't get it, even if you think it's silly...If you KNOW that something you do is going to upset people of another culture, just DON'T DO IT."

11选5精准杀号法"You don't HAVE to understand," Jen, who has more than 250,000 subscribers, continued on to say in the tweet. "You not understanding is irrelevant. You don't have to understand to be kind and respectful."

Rather than address concerns, Star wore another Black hairstyle, feeding into his controversial reputation around race yet again

11选5精准杀号法A Youtube drama account also made a thread explaining why the dreadlocks were a bad call, given Star's for resurfaced racist remarks that he labeled "disgusting, vile, nasty, and embarrassing," and more recent controversies, some involving , that have resulted in him "being labeled a racist" online.

"And to clarify the issue is the combination of the laid edges AND the dreads together," a reply in the thread says. "Most of the backlash I have seen has been because of the edges more than the dreads. Laying edges in this style is unique to black hairstyles so I don't wanna hear about nordic hairstyles."

Star has been active daily on social media since the launch release, but has yet to address the criticism of his hair in the campaign. However, he has been celebrating Valentine's Day weekend in Las Vegas – and appeared in his Snapchat and Instagram Stories wearing another hairstyle associated with Black culture: cornrows. 

 

11选5精准杀号法It isn't the first time Star has worn cornrows or for doing so. The last time he faced accusations of cultural appropriation over cornrows, he a Twitter user who said they were Black and didn't have an issue with the hair style, with Star writing "Hahaha preach!!! young kids trying to be mad at something always."

During his most recent Instagram Story, while wearing cornrows, Star said he would address some "tea" about the "Blood Lust" campaign in a new video. But just includes a brief mention of the different purple shades in the new eyeshadow palette (some fans wanted more purple shades in a purple-themed palette).
