In life only three things are certain – death, taxes and Jeffree Star throwing shade.
YouTubers in the beauty community are known for their public spats, but none quite like Jeffree Star. The makeup guru just dragged his former friend Kat Von D, making sure to keep their long-lasting feud ticking over. Well, at least he's consistent.
It all popped off on Twitter when fellow YouTuber Kathleen Lights asked her followers what they thought about Kat Von D Beauty. The internet went in on Kat, who recently declared she would not be vaccinating her newborn son Leafer, who she welcomed in December with husband Rafael Reyes.
Kat Von Disease? Kat Von Measles? cancelled sis— Emma 🚫 (@sadgirlsimmons) December 11, 2018
I’m really sad honestly. I love the products so very much. I’m really upset about the message KVD her self portrayed. Now it feels like we can’t use KVD products without supporting what she said. It just sucks all around. I’m super sad! pic.twitter.com/Sn5tIBipl7— SHAE⚡️ (@ThatGirlShaeXo) December 11, 2018

Hate it. Kat Von D is a threat to the fragile infrastructure that is public health. I will never purchase from the brand again. There are tons of other companies that can get my money.— jessi (@Jessipoof) December 11, 2018
What do we think of her?— Bitch. (@StuckInThe00s) December 11, 2018
We don’t think of her.
Of course, Jeffree couldn't resist jumping in with a comment of his own, posting a messy tweet about Kat's line being discounted and sold in TK Maxx.
KVD will be a TJ MAXXX exclusive in 2019 I heard!! https://t.co/lxQhaFpya9— Jeffree Star (@JeffreeStar) December 11, 2018
Whew, the shade. Jeffree's followers soon got involved too – but some weren't happy with his statement.
I LOVE you BUT this comes across like there’s a reason we should be ashamed of shopping at TJMaxx. We can’t all afford to live the life you do and there’s nothing wrong with that.— Emily Morrison (@emilymorrison25) December 11, 2018
They literally sell Gucci makeup on TJ maxx website... so this really means nothing— jennnnn. (@grubbsjenn) December 11, 2018
Kat didn't respond to the whole thing, but Jeffree explained why he got involved on his Instagram story. "If you follow me on Twitter, you know I'm a sarcastic arse bitch," he began. "I miss the old days where you could just have a laugh and Tweet something, and it not be a headline, or a news story. I love to f**k around and be silly and sarcastic all day long, but some people can't take the joke."
In case you didn't know, Jeff and Kat were actually good friends at one point. He even appeared on an episode of Kat's TV show LA Ink back in 2011 as one of her BFFs. Well, fast forward to 2016 and it became a very different story of petty makeup rivalry.
Kat ended their friendship in a scathing YouTube video in 2016, claiming Jeffree had stolen the artwork for his makeup line from her friend, BJ. Of course, it spilled onto Twitter and Jeffree hit back at her allegations. But the feud was still raging in 2018, when Jeffree accused Kat of using his name to make money by continuing to sell her liquid lipstick called "Jeffree", even though she'd previously said it would be removed from sale.
It doesn't look like this feud will be dying down anytime soon.
