Shane to the rescue!
Shane Dawson has reached out to a makeup company after they allegedly fired a staff member for appearing in his vlog.
Earlier this month, Shane treated his sister to a $10,000 makeover, and vlogged the experience for his YouTube channel. As part of the makeover, Shane's sister visted cosmetics brand Ulta, and was given a free makeover by a staff member named Carol - who also happened to be a huge Shane Dawson fan.
But according to Carol, Ulta fired her after the video appeared online.
"Meeting you was a once in a lifetime opportunity," Carol wrote on her Instagram page. "Who would have know [sic] that I would have lost my job because of it."
But Shane isn't taking her dismissal lying down.
Tweeting directly at Ulta, Shane wrote, "one of your incredible employees Carol gave my sister a makeover at your store for a series I posted on youtube. it was free promo for your company and the reception was great. Please don’t be a company that fires employees because of youtube. please reconsider."

Shortly after, more YouTubers came to Carol's support.
Ulta.... sweetie.... I agree 100% with Shane! 🙌🏻 do the right thing.— Manny MUA (@MannyMua733) May 21, 2018
I hope it all gets sorted out then! It was an great video that made me want to go shopping for a makeover myself. I’d say that was some good promotion thanks to their great employees— Deligracy (@Deligracy) May 21, 2018
And it appears to have worked! Today, Ulta assured followers that Carol still has her job, if she wants it.
Hey everybody, Let’s clear up the confusion. We love @_iCarol_ as much as you. (And @shanedawson, too) The video is great & Carol is still part of our Ulta Beauty family. We look forward to seeing her tomorrow for her shift.— Ulta Beauty (@ultabeauty) May 22, 2018
