Cancel 'racist' Jeffree Star for good before Jenna Marbles, says Angry Internet, as fans slam hypocrisy
Jeffree Star has been accused of using racial slurs on multiple occasions, including derogatory remarks against black people
YouTube star Jenna Marbles announced today (June 25) that she was quitting her official channel, after apologizing to her 23M subscribers for her past actions in an 11-minute-long video. She had appeared as Nicki Minaj and wore blackface in one of her videos while in another she mocked an Asian man. Marbles said the videos are now taken down. She told her fans, "I’ve spent the last few days privating almost all of my old content, and I’m sorry if any of that holds any nostalgia for you, but I’m literally not trying to put out negative things into the world."
In her farewell video, Marbles has also stated that a few tweets from her fans made her uncomfortable. While she hasn’t clearly expressed if her break from YouTube is tentative or if she’ll be gone forever, her decision clearly hasn’t served fans well, who feel other problematic YouTubers deserve to be canceled before Marbles.
Internet users and Marbles’ fans were quick to take to Twitter to call out another YouTube star, Jeffree Star, who they feel deserves to be canceled before Marbles owing to his racist past and well-know controversies that he was embroiled in. Star is accused of using racial slurs on multiple occasions, including derogatory remarks against black people.
One Marbles fan wrote, "The fact that Jenna Marbles, one of the most kind and sincere youtubers who has continuously shown growth and educated those around her, was 'cancelled' before Jeffree Star’s extremely racist and problematic a** is disheartening." Another speaking in Marbles’ favor wrote, "Jenna sat down in a video and went through each video that was considered problematic, showed the clips, explained why they’re problematic, and apologized. Shane and Jeffree star have yet to do either, and continue to sit on their a***s making s****y f***ing content."
Some noted that Star should be canceled forever taking into consideration his actions in the past. On tweeted, "Why do have to keep re-cancelling jeffree star? he was trash before, and he’s STILL trash now. KEEP HIM CANCELLED FOR GOOD. STOP BUYING HIS PRODUCTS TOO." Another wrote, "When are we gonna finally cancel @JeffreeStar for good? He's doing so much bulls**t and I'm sick of it. Let this racist just be cancelled. Let's do the same for gun girl. IGNORE J* AND ALL THESE RACIST INFLUENCERS. I HATE HOW THEY'RE USING THE BLM MOVEMENT."
And some are simply upset because they won’t get to see more of Marbles, who they feel was a good social media influencer. "Y'all should be ashamed with how y'all did Jenna. The sweetheart of youtube gets canceled but y'all out here still supporting Shane Dawson and Jeffree Star Heartbreaking. You're in my thoughts @Jenna_Marbles hope you know there are quite a few of us who saw your growth, queen." said one.
