Jeffree Star savagely clapped back at a fan and the internet is divided

Drama? Jeffree Star? Never…
It all kicked off when Jeffree congratulated someone on bagging a job at Ulta Beauty, which stocks Jeffree Star Cosmetics' makeup collaboration with Morphe. But one fan – Keanu Balani – took the opportunity to shamelessly plug his makeup skills, which to be fair, are pretty impressive.
But Jeffree instantly clapped back, in only a way Jeffree would. "You don't need to whore yourself out on every single post…," he tweeted. "I'm congratulating someone on a job, why the fuck are you making this about you?? Bye." Whew, savage.
Keanu replied and said: "Not a good feeling to be talked liked that by someone you've looked up to for years."
Jeffree then fired back. "Maybe you'll learn some respect now that someone was honest with you. I never had to use anyone to get to where I am. I was congratulating someone on achieving something and you made it about yourself… Can't relate."
Hurt, Keanu later reposted Jeffree's tweets, writing: "I have been a fan of @JeffreeStar for years. Spent hundreds of my own hard earned minimum wage dollars on his products. And to be humiliated in such a way doesn't feel good. I go to college, work, and do makeup. Just trying to make something out of myself. I am crying."
Jeffree has now deleted his tweets, but that didn't stop everyone on Twitter talking about it.

Jeffree really spent 5 minutes on his Instagram story lying and distorting the truth? If you are “so real & honest” why’d you delete the tweets when people including your own fans starting criticizing your brutish behavior— Keanu Balani ☘️ (@keanubalani) February 28, 2019
Some people thought Jeffree was way too harsh on Keanu.
This is the man y’all support? You guys support this GROWN man talking to one of his supporters like this? ....CANT RELATE. pic.twitter.com/H4P9AHXuoK— Lex Pérez☁️ (@lexusmperezz) February 28, 2019
I'm so sorry this happened to you, Keanu. As others have said, he's always been mean to fans, even lashing out at drama channels because they were just discussing him. You deserve better though.— Borderline Enemy (@EmmaGilmore9) February 28, 2019
Also, your looks are killer.
Wow @JeffreeStar this is really disappointing and makes me super sad. I 💯 get your point but this is just so just flat out mean that I can’t get my head around it. I’m not sure what he did to deserve any of this and frankly it just hurts my heart to see this kid being shit on. https://t.co/9iTy1OqoVW— Rob Walp (@walpstar) February 28, 2019
...but others applauded him.
Lmao he wasn’t wrong. The clappation was necessary— Mister Preda (@MisterPreda) February 28, 2019
Jeffree’s right though. I understand wanting someone you look up to to see the work they’ve inspired you to do but i can imagine it gets annoying on every single tweet people are always doing this. You’re talented and you can get somewhere without disrespecting others.— 𝒽𝒶𝓎𝓁𝑒𝓎 (@yellllyahhhh) February 28, 2019
Imagine trying to steal someone else’s spotlight. Can’t relate 🤷🏼♀️— Amber Townsend (@ambernicolet95) February 28, 2019
