On June 1, Jeffree Star tweeted out that he wanted to donate to "black-owned small businesses that have been destroyed" in Los Angeles. Some fans, however, took issue with the fact that Jeffree only offered help to "black-owned" businesses.

First of all, check out Jeffree's tweet below:

"Hey #LosAngeles, please educate me on where I can make donations to help rebuild black-owned small businesses that have been destroyed! 💯Send me links, thank you. I started from NOTHING and will ALWAYS help people who need support rebuilding."

 

How did fans react?

Altogether, there were mixed reactions to Jeffree's offer. Whilst many fans applauded Jeffree's offer to help, some took issue on the fact that Jeffree was only offering to donate to "black-owned" small business owners.

Check out their tweets below:

"Not just black-owned businesses were destroyed though @JeffreeStar"

"Can you please help both black and white small businesses that were destroyed. None of those people did anything to deserve that"

 

However, several fans leapt to Jeffree's defence, arguing that Jeffree wasn't obligated to donate to anyone and that in light of the current events, Jeffree's offer was more than appropriate.

 

"But he wants to help black owned businesses, he doesn’t OWE anyone anything and he can help whoever he pleases."

"This isn’t about white people!! Understand what’s going on right now!!!!"

"Nah this aint it, the government got white owned businesses’ backs. Help the people who really need it"

 

Unfortunately, there have been people who attempted to trick Jeffree into donating some of the money to themselves. One scammer tweeted that they were a "small black business owner", and that their business had been "destroyed" in California.

Check out the scammer's tweet below:

"I am small black business owner in California my business was destroy I don’t even know if I will able to ever reopen again all my life saving went into my business"

*Attached to the tweet is a picture of a small shop with damaged items and pieces of smashed glass.

They were quickly caught out, however, as some fans recognized that the picture had been taken from an article from San Francisco Chronicle. They accused the scammer of trying to take advantage of Jeffree Star's generosity and attempting to scam him.

"Are you kidding me?? That’s a pi by stole from a news article of a Marshall’s... you’re what’s wrong with the world... @JeffreeStar"

"This isn’t even your photo. Stop trying to take advantage of the situation when there’s people who actually need help."

Jeffree Star had previously donated $30,000 to Aurora, a mother of two who was struggling to pay her bills due to coronavirus. He had also donated several fans $250 each and even tipped a food delivery driver $1,000.
