Twitter has been reacting to the latest drama involving the beauty community on YouTube, following Tati Westbrook’s latest video calling out Shane Dawson and Jeffree Star.
In the video, which was titled Breaking My Silence, the 38-year-old accused the pair of ‘manipulating’ her into making her infamous ‘Bye Sister ‘video about James Charles last May.
Tati revealed that making Bye Sister was one of the biggest regrets of her life, admitting it damaged her health, relationships, and reputation.
People have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the scandal, posting hilarious memes alongside their reactions.

James Charles lost millions of followers and experienced suicidal thoughts following last year’s Bye Sister video, in which Tati “exposed” his alleged inappropriate behaviour.
But in her latest video, Tati claimed that she was coerced into making the infamous video by Shane and Jeffree.
“[Shane] and Jeffree fed me so much information that I felt sick. Almost every day there was more information and new allegations,” Tati alleged.
“Eventually I started believing what they were saying, because they said they had evidence.”
While Jeffree is yet to publicly respond to the latest drama, Shane and his fiancé Rylan Adams took to Twitter to respond to the accusations.
Rylan wrote: “Tati Westbrook – a master class in ￼manipulation. The only was to save her reputation was to side with the person she tried to ruin. Make no mistake. This 40 year old woman choose to post a video on her own accord.”
“She riled up Shane before doing so to have one of the biggest creators backing her in the chance this all backfired. Shane very well WOULD have posted a video exposing James had he felt so inclined.”
“No receipts because she didn’t want to expose the countless times she told Shane that she was a big girl doing this ONLY for herself,” he finished.

In a since deleted tweet, Shane also wrote: “THIS IS A F***ING LIE AND I’M LOSING MY MIND!!!”
The news comes just days after Shane came under fire last week, after he released an apology over his past controversies.
The 31-year-old also faced backlash from Jada and Jaden Smith, after an old video resurfaced of Shane appearing to sexualise Willow Smith – who was eleven years old at the time.
On this week’s episode of the Gosscast, Goss.ie Founder & CEO Ali Ryan opens up about her own experiences with double standards, gender inequality and sexism both in the workplace and in society in general.
Joining her this week is top Irish fitness coach Kiki Fit, who opens up about her own troubling experiences with harassment, as well as the struggle to be taken seriously as a woman in business.
