As fans know, his Twitter post came just days after Jeffree sent fans into a frenzy by posting a seriously sultry, PDA-filled photo on Instagram. The pic showed him wrapped in the arms of a mystery man — who has appeared to be identified as basketball player André Marhold.
Jeffree’s comments also came a few days after he released his first-ever nude makeup collection on Friday, August 21. Complete with two palettes, lip glosses, mini-matte lipsticks, setting powder and various merch items, the new products initially received some backlash for their name. Some claimed that calling it the line “Orgy” was “unnecessary.” While others were thrilled that they were finally getting a neutral palette from the brand.
“You’re aware like 12 year olds buy your stuff. They’re gonna be asking their parents, ‘Can you get me Jeffree Star’s Orgy Collection?’ The parent would be mortified,” one Twitter user posted, following the collection’s reveal.
For those who missed it, this isn’t the only makeup collection that Jeffree has released this year that received social media backlash from fans. In May, the makeup artist responded after fans called his “Cremated” collection “insensitive” amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“For me, this is art and I never come from a negative place, you guys,” the 34-year-old explained in a 21-minute video. “So if you were thinking that, absolutely not. My brand is to, like, I created this to make people smile. I create a brand for all the weirdos and people that really didn’t feel like they fit in. So, in no way was this created to be offensive, ever.”
