If you thought you were shook when you found out James Charles officially lost 3 million subscribers, you should probably take a seat. Why? Because the beauty guru’s merch site is completely down, and some fans are totally convinced it’s because of Jeffree Star. Wait, what?
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Jeffree and his many successful businesses, he owns a company called Killer Merch. Essentially, it’s a full service company that many artists, influencers and brands use for the design, creation and shipment of their merchandise, including — you guessed it — James Charles.
Yup! Killer Merch is the company that made all those “fun and fresh” Sisters Apparel products, and now, in the wake of Tati Westbrook‘s 43-minute-long video slamming the 19-year-old, the website is mysteriously down. Hmm…
Starting on Monday, May 13, people who tried to access sisters-apparel.com were taken to a variety of different pages. Some were faced with a security warning, others with a message that the site is under construction, and now, it seems to be redirecting to the makeup artist‘s YouTube channel. No one, however, has been able to access the site, leading several people to believe that Jeffree’s company may have taken it down completely.
“the merch team that makes the clothes for sisters apparel is owned by [Jeffree Star] and i’ve been trying to check on the process of my order since yesterday and James’ site is literally CLOSED,” one person wrote.

“Jeffree took down Sisters Apparel,” another person tweeted along with skull emojis.

Although Jeffree hasn’t commented about whether or not he’s responsible for the sisters-apparel.com shut down, it certainly wouldn’t be out of character. We mean, ever since this scandal broke, the Jeffree Star Cosmetics founder has openly tweeted his support for Tati while slamming James.
“There is a reason that Nathan banned James Charles from ever coming over to our home again,” he tweeted and deleted amid the scandal. “There’s a reason why I haven’t seen him since @GlamLifeGuru’s birthday in February. He is a danger to society. Everything Tati said is 100% true.”
Then, when James’ brother Ian took to Twitter to ask why everyone’s so tough on the internet, Jeffree slammed him in another tweet that’s since been deleted.
“Why is your brother a predator?? Why’d you really move back to NYC? Exactly. Shut the f–k up.” Woah.
And even though Jeffree and James have seemingly been on good terms in recent months, their relationship wasn’t always a pleasant one. In a video posted to James’ channel in May 2018, the YouTubers spoke candidly about their past drama.
“I went to New York with some friends, and we were there, and I had never met James before,” Jeffree explained. “… Someone I was with was like, ‘Uh, I don’t really want you to take a picture with James,’ and it was like this whole weird thing. And I was like, ‘I mean, he’s f–king cool. He’s a boy in beauty. let’s meet him. He’s younger.’ I lived for it, and I loved your artistry. … But it sucks when — and I can admit it, even at my age — that people do have an influence on you, and when someone’s in your ear kind of saying s–t, you kind of follow along, which sucks. So I was a follower in a situation that I definitely regret, and I apologize for that.”
In addition to that incident, James recalled a Twitter feud between him, Jeffree and Manny MUA, as well as when he wore Jeffree’s black lipstick and tagged Kylie Cosmetics instead because he didn’t want to give Jeffree the credit. Yikes!
Clearly, these two have a long and complicated history, and evidently, the drama is far from over. Sorry sisters, but it looks like Sisters Apparel might be over for good.
