YouTuber Kameron Lester has accused Jeffree Star of treating him like “the token Black kid” in a new video. Yep, during a 27-minute Instagram Live, which was reposted as an IGTV to his account, the beauty guru opened up about why he will “no longer support” Jeffree or his products.

The influencer explained that he became friends with the the makeup mogul after he modeled for his company, Jeffree Star Cosmetics, but that Jeffree never followed through with his promises to Kameron.

“I don’t want to monetize this, I don’t want any gain from this. The only gain I want is peace and my truth, and this is my personal truth … Everyone has their own truth and they might perceive things differently and that’s okay,” he said. “As a Black beauty boy I have fought for my spot to even just be heard and be seen in the beauty community. I have been told not to say anything just to keep the network and benefit from it. I’m just not that type of person. I’ve been processing this for months. I’ve never said anything on my platforms … But silence is complicit.”

Speaking my personal truth.

“I just felt like it was never a friendship [with Jeffree], it was never a friendship in the beginning to start with, it was always just something like I was the kind of like the token black kid,” he continued.  “There was an instance that [Jeffree] asked me if I like James [Charles] or not. And I was just so shocked — he was just like, ‘Do you like James?’ Like, ‘Do you like him?’ and I was just so shocked and uncomfortable because he was such like a big powerhouse. I was uncomfortable, there’s people around me, and he was so blunt — just out of nowhere asked me, ‘Do you like James?'”

The makeup artist explained that after he told Jeffree that he did like James, he felt like it changed their relationship. He also witnessed a FaceTime call between Jeffree and Shane Dawson, in which Shane was “cursing James out.”

“I was just kind of taken back because I’ve never seen Shane Dawson like that and he was just going in on James,” the 21-year-old added. “From there, I knew Shane Dawson wasn’t really the person he was perceived [to be] online.”

After that, Kameron said that Jeffree cast his ex-best friend instead of him in his next campaign.

“I felt like he was trying to send the message in some way that I was replaceable as a black boy,” he told fans. “I felt like this was a game. Even with Shane Dawson posting me on his platform [last week] — I was grateful, but I felt like it was kind of to silence me to be like, ‘We’re gonna keep giving you breadcrumbs and hanging you by a string and manipulating you so you can stay quiet.’ I felt always silenced.”
