We are now on day three of the ongoing Kat Von D vs. Jeffree Star internet feud.
There have been a lot of allegations thrown around on both sides — Kat says that Jeffree is a status-obsessed bully, Jeffree says that Kat is trying to ruin his career. Many things said by BOTH sides end up being mere sound and fury, signifying nothing.
But there is one allegation so serious that we really need to talk about it: Kat's assertion that Jeffree Star is racist.
If you don't want to watch it — and I would not blame you, it's stomach-churning — here are some choice quotes from Jeffree:
"I win by having diamond rims, and you win by being a poor Mexican."
"Shut up, you fucking n***** bitch!"
"You stupid ape."
He asks someone, "Will you beat that n***** up for me?"
He screams at a woman walking away from him down the street, "She's a fucking n*****! You're a n*****, you fucking ugly-ass bitch! Fuck you, ho!"
"She's a fat, ugly bitch, you stupid cunt!"
"Bitch, I'll kill you like Anna Nicole, you fucking skank bitch."
And here's some of his "comedy" in which he jokes about throwing battery acid in a black woman's face.
Choice quotes: "You say black folk cannot wear MAC Cosmetics, and then you splashed acid in her face."
"Well maybe if she wasn't wearing the wrong foundation color, I wouldn't have HAD to splash no battery acid to lighten her skintone, girl."
Jeffree, to his credit, did apologize for *this* video, which he says was "a huge mistake."
Thanks to our wonderful followers on Eyeliner Addict for bringing this to our attention.
However. I think I speak for everyone when I say...
This is not OK.
Jeffree is big on saying that his past isn't perfect, but whose is? As if that's an excuse for virulent, hateful stuff like this.
Everyone does dumb stuff when they're young, that's true. NOT everyone's dumb stuff includes screaming racial abuse at people.
