“Even though I have to agree with the people that the timing…the timing,” she said.

“So many people are passing away because of the coronavirus, and we need to take a distance from people, having a burial and that ceremony is a very touchy subject at the moment. I have to agree with people saying that the timing is a little…urgh. With that comes – and I’m not defending anyone – after I taped my appearance on Ellen in January, I actually visited Jeffree,” she revealed.

Jeffree showed me this palette and told me it was geared for April. He had been working on it for so long. That tells you that creating makeup isn’t done in two weeks. It isn’t done in two months…it takes months upon months of finding the right balance of the formula, it’s like a whole sort of journey, but then the virus happened. So I don’t want to get into it too, too far, but the thing is though…it wouldn’t have mattered if he came out with this right now, or in a couple of months. We’re going to have to deal with the virus for the next couple of years, probably…the theme is cremated, so it would have hurt people either way.”

Jeffree also spoke about the scandal on the same day.
