Many makeup lovers use Youtube as a platform to express themselves, like James Charles, Jeffree Star, Nikki De Jager, and Laura Lee. All of which make makeup tutorials and post them on youtube like to and talk with their viewers, but their mostly known for their drama. Recently the beauty community hasn’t been focused on makeup, but drama. Usually which starts out as petty small arguments leads to huge business wrecking fights. Usually, these fights end up in videos of them crying apologizing to their viewers for the offensive things they have said in the past or to others. Many tweets and old text have been exposed and dug up by people who dislike these Youtubers in order to expose them, and they take their time to do this.

Jeffree has also criticized Kim’s swatching skills on Snapchat  and fans took the time to defend Kim on social media, and Kim has taken time to defend herself saying “people (Jeffrey star’s) can change.” Another popular feud is with Jerrod Blandino from ‘two faced’.
