YouTuber Tati Westbrook says she was 'weaponized' by Shane Dawson and Jeffree Star in plot to ruin beauty guru James Charles - insisting they fed her lies and 'gaslit' her into making a video about his alleged predatory behavior
YouTube star Tati Westbrook has made shocking new claims against fellow influencers Jeffree Star and Shane Dawson, accusing them of 'using' her in a plot to destroy the career of beauty guru James Charles by 'manipulating' her into making a video exposing his alleged predatory behavior.
The 38-year-old opened up about a year-old drama in a very tearful video posted to her YouTube channel on Tuesday, finally shedding some light on the bitter feud between herself and Charles, which was sparked when she called him out for 'seducing straight men' and 'tricking them into thinking they are gay'.
When the claims were first aired in Westbrook's May 2019 video, they prompted a bitter backlash against Charles, who lost more than three million subscribers in the wake of the video going live. Westbrook also faced fury from his fans, and subsequently disappeared from her channel for months.

'Who will protect you from rape without police?' Here's my answer to that question
As uprisings have spread through American cities in response to the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, a once fringe leftwing position has become rapidly mainstream: abolishing the police. Police abolition means different things to different people, but to most activists “abolition” means a radical shrinking, defunding and disarming of police forces.
The call to “abolish the police”, then, amounts not to a wholesale abandonment of the state’s enforcement of criminal law, but rather to a reimagining of the nature and responsibilities of that enforcement. Many abolition advocates imagine a future in which the police no longer constitute an armed group that surveils peaceful minority neighborhoods or uses force in non-violent drug and traffic cases. The police, if they exist at all in an abolitionist future, would be smaller, disarmed and just one of many community interventions to foster public safety.
But as calls for police abolition have entered the mainstream, some feminists – as well as commentators invested in the status quo – have raised a question: without police, who will defend women from male violence? Who will investigate and arrest rapists? This is often a well-intended and good-faith concern, especially from feminists who believe that the prevalence of sexual violence and the failure of the justice system to prosecute and punish rapists is a result of societal indifference to women’s suffering. To them, this failure calls for more, not less, state intervention.
The notion that abolishing the police will have negative repercussions for women radically misunderstands both American policing and sexual violence
But the notion that abolishing the police will have negative repercussions for women radically misunderstands both American policing and sexual violence. Police abolition need not be considered an abdication of the responsibility to protect women, but rather a way to fulfill it.
Black Cop Fired After She Stopped White Cop's Chokehold, City Wants Investigation
With all due respect, wouldn't the current enforcement instigate themselves in the new robotic training with delicate fingers because they are better qualified, there's that equality thing and because the shit needs to keep stirring? Will they only patrol people of status? The homelessness barely represent. Police or ignore? That gleam in your ugly boss' eye when he catches you staring... is that a crime? Call him ugly, it's ok. Bring slaps back.
Teach what we've got or recruit an unproven advantage that includes the same problem? The job isn't racist, the power to be excused from it is. Are we setting ourselves up for comic book double-cross?

Hollywood Celebs Are Praising an Anti-Semitic Hatemonger
I regret to inform you the celebs are at it again.
On Sunday, in lieu of posting Instagram-friendly protest content, discussing White Fragility in a Zoom book club, or recording a mortifyingly tone-deaf PSA renouncing racism, the comedian Chelsea Handler shared a video clip to her 3.9 million Instagram followers. The clip featured Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam, during a 1990 appearance on The Phil Donahue Show.
In the clip, Farrakhan attempts to educate the rowdy, majority-white daytime TV audience on the subject of white supremacy.
“I really don’t think you fully understand what has happened to these people you look at as second-class or inferior citizens in this nation,” Farrakhan explains. “Black people who were brought to this country were stripped of their names, language, culture, religion, God, and taken totally away from the history of themselves. Here are 30 million people who don’t wear their own names—they wear your names.”
