THE LAURA LEE SAGA 🍵 alright so @justsandsworld (you're amazing Sanders!!! 🖤) has just reported that after losing over 300,000 subscribers on YouTube & her very negatively received apology for her disgusting, racist TWEETS (NOT retweets) that surfaced, @morphebrushes will be dropping Laura Lee from their roster of influencers as well as from affiliate codes & her products in Morphe stores. She has done multiple collaborations with the company, from an eyeshadow palette to multiple brush collections & I am sure she has made them a HELL of a lot of money. I am surprised to see this as Morphe doesn't have the best track record with .. many things .. but at least they arent cosigning this crazy shit.
Apparently her imaging & certain things are still visible on Morphe's website but they are in the process of being removed. She won't have a Morphe affiliate code anymore & likely won't be invited to any events, photoshoots or launches. Let's play devil's advocate here.. how can any brand work with her in the future? 😶 She is unable to post videos on YouTube as her comments section has been flooded with unsatisfied, hurt, offended people & same with her social media platforms. If she mentions a brand in any of her content now, it won't be a good look for said brand.. this has turned out really bad for Laura. She could have handled this much differently & the outcome would have also been much different. She made the decisions that lead her here, so she will now have to deal with the cascade of consequences.
Are you shook or what!? This is some PIPING hot tea.. 🍵 I won't lie, I am shocked to see such a swift action from a brand that is very close to her.. kinda sums up the public opinion regarding how she handled the situation. What is going to happen to her makeup line now, as well as her YouTube channel? 🤔 This has to be the worst PR nightmare in the beauty community in the last 5+ years. Btw, @gabrielzamora uploaded an apology video on YouTube & spills MAJOR tea on how Laura handled this situation as well as her & Manny BEHIND the camera.. I recommend you watch it for some perspective on this entire situation. 😮 What a hot damn mess! ⛔
