Another moment that stood out to Kameron was when he allegedly spoke to Jeffree about Jackie Aina, another prominent figure in the beauty community on YouTube.
“I brought it up to [Jeffree] and said, ‘It would really say a lot if you could apologize to Jackie and the community.’ He kind of shut it down and said, ‘She doesn’t deserve a f–king spot on my platform,'” Kameron said of their conversation. “Which is understandable, and it is his platform, and he has all rights to do whatever he wants to do on his platform. I just left it at that, but I was definitely hurt as a Black boy and as a Black influencer who loves Jackie, that he was not trying to grow or amend that disconnect or wrongdoing he has done.”
Kameron explained that from this day forward, he “will no longer just be the token Black boy.”
“I will no longer just be the Black boy that is there to make you look good or speak up for you, because it’s not reciprocated,” he shared. “As a Black beauty boy, I have fought for my spot to be heard and seen in the beauty community… I have been told not to say anything, to keep the network and benefit from it, and I’m just not that type of person. I want to remain authentic.”
