When specifically asked about the drama surrounding Shane Dawson‘s past problematic videos, he said: “I don’t wanna talk about anything in relation to him.”

He also said “I don’t really wanna address anything in [regards] to the drama” when asked about Tati Westbrook.

However, when asked about Shane‘s past behavior, he said: “I think it should always be looked at on a case-by-case basis and make sure that people are changing actively.” He also shook his head when asked if he had spoken to Shane recently.

“hey boos, as some of you may know as of this week I will no longer be a @MorpheBrushes affiliate. code ‘EDGES’ has deactivated. I refuse to align myself with a company that continues to retail antiblack racist beauty brands. I strongly encourage other influencers to do the same!” she wrote.

The news comes as Tati Westbrook alleged in a recent video that Jeffree Star is an investor in the company, which the brand has denied. The company also recently removed the Jeffree and Shane Dawson Conspiracy palette from their inventory amid backlash against both YouTubers for prior racist behavior and problematic jokes.

Tati also had an apology for Jackie in her video for not “walking away” before collaborating with Jeffree

“YouTube has been a place where I have learned so much. Whether it’s been how to use my printer or it’s been watching how to be a considerate activist, this is the place to talk about things that are important and that matter,” she explained.

“I’m incredibly excited about joining the YouTube family and having the opportunity to share a little bit more about myself through personal videos and stories. For so long the internet perception of me has been through this carefully curated lens of a press day pegged to a specific project I am promoting. I’ve been hesitant to reveal too much about myself, partly out of fear of the unknown, but also because I had this idea that people wouldn’t be able to believe me as other characters. I see my channel as a way to break away from this line of thought and become more vulnerable and open about my flaws, what I am passionate about and who I actually am.”

Brie was recently spotted on a rare outing with her boyfriend.

The move to demonetize Shane‘s accounts by the company comes amid strong backlash from the public and fellow YouTubers for the resurfacing of Shane‘s racist jokes and sexualization of minors in older videos, along with his involvement in beauty community drama that has once again reignited with Tati Westbrook‘s latest upload, in which she claims she was “weaponized” to bring down James Charles because of Jeffree Star and Shane.

Jada Pinkett Smith spoke out with a message for the YouTube star after a video resurfaced in which he sexualized her daughter Willow when she was just 11. Here’s what she said about it…

Her exit comes after some fans asked her to address several skits from the past, including one in which she appeared to be in blackface as part of a Nicki Minaj impression in 2011.

She explained that there were “things in her past she’s not proud of,” and that she is “moving on from [her] channel.”

“I don’t know if that’s forever, I don’t know how long it’s going to be. I want to make sure the things that I put into the world are not hurting anyone.”

“I’ve tried my best to grow up and to be a better person,” striving to “make fun content, inclusive content, things that don’t offend people or upset people.”

“I’m sorry if any of [my old content] holds any nostalgia for you, but I’m literally not trying to put out negative things into the world. I think there was a time when having all of my old content exist on the internet showed how much I have grown up as a person, which I’m very proud of. I think now it’s hard for that content to exist at all because I think people watch it and don’t bother to look at when it was posted or care about what path I took to get to where I am. It offends them now, and, if that’s the case, where people will watch something and be offended now, I don’t want it to exist…I just don’t want anyone to feel upset about anything. I don’t want to contribute to that…I don’t want someone to watch something and feel hurt or offended now for any reason at all.”

She also went into detail about particularly offensive videos from her past.

This YouTube star also said she was moving on from her channel earlier in the year.
