On June 22, YouTuber Morgan Adams unfollowed Beauty YouTube Jeffree Stars on Instagram and Twitter. Some fans, however, aren't happy with Morgan's decision.
For those who don't know, Shane Dawson, Morgan's soon-to-be brother-in-law, uploaded a long note on Twitter. In it, Shane explained to fans that he's quitting the beauty community because of the level of toxicity within in.
According to Shane, the majority of the makeup gurus are "egocentric, narcissistic, and vengeful", and he admitted that Jeffree Star was amongst them. He added that whilst Jeffree will always be "family" to him, he doesn't agree with a lot of Jeffree's actions.
In his Twitter note, Shane wrote to fans:
I "Yes, Jeffree is in that list of dramatic gurus and he would admit that, and he will always be family to me and I love him, despite those characteristics."
I "He's very aware of the fact that I don't agree with many of the ways he approaches situations and I have been very honest with him about needing to make some changes."

Check out their tweets below:
I "Morgan Adams unfollowing @JeffreeStar coz it ''à la mode''? he did so much for you, defended you from bullies and THAT'S how you thank him?!?!?? by bye bitche! *unfollow, unsubcried*"
I "I’m just saying you can’t unfollow someone but benefit off of them willingly and like still carry around a Gucci bag they gave you and claim you don’t support them."
I "@morganadams UNFOLLOWED YOU!!! HOW DARE YOU UNFOLLOW @JeffreeStar!!! #cancelmorganadams"
However, other fans rushed to Morgan's side. These fans slammed the haters for involving her in the first place. Whilst a few disagreed with Shane's and Jeffree's actions, some demanded that Morgan should be left out of the drama.
I "I don't agree with people making it out like it's morgans job to sort shane out. She's not his partner, nor even his sister - so guilting her isn't going to help. Everyone just needs to unfollow Shane and Jeffree, cancel them forever. But not those innocently associated with them.
