dangers to society

Vlogger Jeffree Star’s past predatory sexual behavior is finally coming back to haunt him

CoverGirl model/makeup artist James Charles has been fielding a PR nightmare after shocking allegations were lodged against him by fellow influencer Tati Westbrook claiming he took advantage of straight men, pressuring them into having gay sex against their wills.

For whatever reason, another fellow influencer, Jeffree Star, decided to insert himself into the drama by calling 19-year-old Charles a “danger to society” on Twitter.

“There is a reason that [boyfriend] Nathan [Schwandt] banned James Charles from ever coming over to our home again,” 33-year-old Star wrote on Sunday. “There’s a reason why I haven’t seen him since @GlamLifeGuru’s birthday in February. He is a danger to society. Everything Tati said is 100% true.”

Given Star’s own history with fetishizing straight men, however, the criticism didn’t land so well.

In 2007, before he became a beauty vlogger and when he was still an aspiring club performer, Star released the song “Straight Boys.”

The song was all about his lust for heterosexual men and included lyrical gems like “I wanna boy with juicy lips who doesn’t care I don’t have tits” and “They don’t have to tell their friends they’re getting it from both ends.”

Yesterday, Twitter user  dug up several old tweets written by Star where he bragged about preying on straight guys, including one that reads: “I’ve had so many straight boys naked that I think I deserve a life time [sic] achievement award.”

Others on Twitter pointed to episodes from Star’s past in which they feel he behaved just as badly, if not worse, than Charles.

Star has since deleted the tweet calling Charles a “danger to society” and has begun blocking anyone who accuses him of calling the kettle black.

Now, like Charles, people are calling for him to be “canceled” as well.
