Hello everyone! I’m Rachel the WT Intern and welcome back to another edition of the Sunday roundup, here is what you missed this weekend. We’re covering Shane Dawson, Fathers Day, and Trump’s Tulsa Rally failure.
Jeffree Star and Shane Dawson are Under Fire… Again
Jeffree Star and Shane Dawson are under fire again. And is anyone really surprised?
Early yesterday Jeffree Star cosmetics relaunched the Shane Dawson X Jeffree Star collection that was originally released back in November and sold out almost immediately. However, people were less eager to jump on the new makeup bandwagon this time around.
Information resurfaced about both Shane and Jeffree’s checkered and what some would call racist past comments. And in light of the Black Lives Matter movement that is still surging on around the US folks were looking for an apology.
Neither Shane nor Jeffree has commented on their most recent cancellation quite yet but only time will tell. What do you guys think? Will you be buying any of the restocked items? Or are you done with Jeffree and Shane for reals this time?

Zoomers and K-Pop stans HiJack Trump’s Tulsa Rally
Yesterday President Trump held his first campaign rally since the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic in Tulsa Oklahoma. The campaign expected record turnout and was planning on having to turn people away at the door. But that didn’t happen. In fact, thanks to a viral TikTok and the help of K-Pop fans the stadium was barely half full.
Trump spokesperson Brad Pascale tweeted his excitement about the stadium being so full and the crazy amount of ticket requests that the event was getting only to be let down.
Just passed 800,000 tickets. Biggest data haul and rally signup of all time by 10x.
Saturday is going to be amazing! https://t.co/u2tQ812odW

After the event, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted this sharing her delight with the Zoomers and KPop Stans everywhere.
Actually you just got ROCKED by teens on TikTok who flooded the Trump campaign w/ fake ticket reservations & tricked you into believing a million people wanted your white supremacist open mic enough to pack an arena during COVID
Shout out to Zoomers. Y’all make me so proud. ☺️ https://t.co/jGrp5bSZ9T

And here is just one of the many Tik Toks that suggested the idea to the teens who reserved all those tickets.
