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.

Fuck Jeffree Star for this. Honestly. I swear social media is a disease. How do you one, turn the camera on right now and two make it about you? pic.twitter.com/bvbiMT8Zdl— luvvie (@newlaydee) January 26, 2020
I can’t believe y’all still support Jeffree Star. He’s openly racist and does everything he can to make everything about him. Somebody died and he’s playing victim. Sick— the worst ™️ (@rikesha_) January 26, 2020
Jeffree hasn't yet responded to the accusations, but he did tweet earlier this morning.
Good morning everyone... Monday feels so empty.— Jeffree Star (@JeffreeStar) January 27, 2020
Sending love to the victims and their families.
