On January 17, Beauty YouTuber Jeffree Star posted a tweet that suggested that he was no longer friends with or using the services of Hair By Jay, following the scandal with Trisha Paytas.
For those who don't know, Trisha Paytas recently uploaded a YouTube video titled, "why I’m scared of jeffree and hairbyjay". In the video, a tearful Trisha reacts to an aggressive Instagram Live by Jeffree's hairstylist and friend, Hair By Jay.
In the Instagram Live, Hair By Jay attacks her weight and appearance and calls her "stupid walrus looking a** full of warts b****", amongst other slurs. Trisha then states that this is what she had to endure when she is with Jeffree and his friends.
Jeffree has since responded to the situation in a series of tweets, explaining that he had been in Wyoming and "had no idea what was going on" and was "horrified" when he found out about the livestream. (Fans can read more here).
The next day, Jeffree tweeted out:
I "Goooood morning to everyone except the guy that used to do my hair."
I "I always hold the people around me accountable, I know that’s hard for some people to believe but I’m a grown ass man and 2021 will only be full of good energy 💯"
How did fans react?
The responses were mixed. Some fans were happy that Jeffree is no longer using Hair By Jay's services, pointing out that it was a good move for his brand.
These fans say that even though it doesn't "automatically fix things", it is still a step in the right direction.
I "I’m so happy you fired him!!! You don’t need that association with you or your brand! Trish is one of the best drama queens but I felt them tears she spilled!"
I "👏👏👏👏 thank you for doing the right thing. Obviously none of us know what happened between you all but this is the right step. Obviously it won't automatically fix things but I hope it helps @trishapaytas to know he is being held accountable"
I "So glad you aren't siding with him. His behavior was beyond disgusting & disappointing. not to mention he is a grown ass man putting down a female [...] "
Meanwhile, other fans didn't think it was enough and wanted Jeffree to make a public apology video to Trisha as he had played a "pivotal role" in Trisha's breakdown.
I "How does firing just him make it better? You were apart [of] it."
I "so you’re telling me, that was your friend and employee for how long? and he was the only one who talked about trish like that? and you just sat there in silence, not saying a word? you know you spoke about her the same way."
I "You still played a pivotal role in the situation as you still spoke badly about Trisha.. what you can do is make a video, owning up to your mistakes finally ADMITTING you were in the wrong"
Hair By Jay has since publicly apologized to Trisha in a livestream, saying that he "never had a problem with her".
