Jeffree Star is at the center of another major controversy. After hearing the news of NBA player Kobe Bryant's death, the YouTuber filmed a reaction video that has the internet very upset.

The video clip was posted to Jeffree's Snapchat. "Oh my god, there goes another helicopter. I can’t f*cking believe this, you guys, like, Kobe Bryant passed away two miles from my house," the mogul said, crying. "Like there’s been helicopters flying by all morning, this is – I feel sick."

"His poor f*cking family, his wife. My god there’s so much f*cked up sh*t happening in the world," Jeffree continued. "I'm in a state of shock, rest in peace to a f*cking legend. Kobe, we love you."

Though everyone copes with loss in their own way, Twitter was NOT into Jeffree's post. Some felt the video clip was an inappropriate response to the tragedy and quickly accused the vlogger of using the victims of the crash for clout.

Jeffree hasn't yet responded to the accusations, but he did tweet earlier this morning.

Sending love to the victims and their families.
