Laura Lee

YouTube beauty blogger Laura Lee apologized after all of her sponsors abandoned ship when racist comments she made in 2012 resurfaced on Twitter.com.

Fans found her offensive tweets on her timeline and retweeted them, sparking a mass exodus of followers on her popular YouTube channel.

Lee posted an apology video and a lengthy apology message on Twitter.com. "It's the hardest thing I've ever done," she said in the video while fighting back tears.

“I deactivated my Twitter last night because I was mad at myself for the ignorant tweets that I made back in 2012. That girl who tweeted that isn’t who I am today," the Alabama-native wrote on Twitter.

“People have called my mother and threatened to kill her. They have gotten her phone number. They attacked a child, my 14-year-old niece, attacked her. And I ask you this please, let this be me. Let this be about me. It’s not about my family. It’s about me. It is not about anyone else. This is my sorry.”

Lee lost over 300,000 followers bringing her total follow count down to 4 million on YouTube.

    My daughter wants to be a Tip Top Lawyer yet she is very Conscious and Aware of the racial climate we live in. She wanted to use social media to express her discontent. I told her NO.......One day she may want to run for District Attorney and those folks will go all the way back to your birth to dig up any dirt you may have had. Like my moms says- Don't cut your nose just to spite your face........

    In one 2012 tweet from Laura, she wrote, "Tip for all black people if you pull ur pants up you can run from the police faster.." She also tweeted, "Ni**as in Paris? Whaaaat I thought they couldn't afford to leave Compton!" as well as tweets making fun of Chinese people's eyes.

  • FukkFolks2018

Let this be about me. It’s not about my family. It’s about me. It is not about anyone else. This is my sorry.”

    Why was this section highlighted though? To try to gain sympathy for a racist?

    Anyway I'm from Alabama and gotta say, not surprised at all.

    Well what she say? Odd this article didn't say it. When did she change from the 2012 girl? When she got sponsors? Why common sense didn't tell her to delete her old tweets? She haven't seen her fellow bloggers go down?

  • Jamey Rand

  • Kbellaluvvs

    Chile she has been dragged to the high heaven by other youtubers. They are getting millions of views just by doing videos about her. Jefree Starr even came for her like he wasn't in the same situation a year ago lmao..

  • Renee26

    ?

  • Renee26

    Lol

  • FukkFolks2018

    My sister just left NC had been here her whole life (our dad was an IBMer) since age of 8 (prior to here my folks were in Endicott NY...also bc of IBM) and went to...Bama. The cost of living is so so CHEAP. Her and brother in law got a BANGING house for next to nothing. So Cali to BAMA? Listen you saving MAD money but yeah its just...different there.

  • dontgetblocked

    Youtube has a live subscriber count. She started out with more than 5 million subscribers and lost more than 500,000.

  • FukkFolks2018

    GIRL! This too. Its a REASON neither one of my parents carried they asses back there. They left when they were 16 and 18. Even after they divorced...NOBODY went home.

  • Renee26

    Shs meant every word

  • Miss Thang

    Jefree has some damn nerve... He has no right to talk about anyone being racist when he's racist his damn self.

  • Kita Williams

    I SCROLLED PAST THIS LIKE DUDE.....SOOOOOOO just being a d*ck for no reason just bc your sh*t was called out???

  • FukkFolks2018

    I SAW THIS. But he needs to hush. When I Googled to find her exact words a few minutes ago? His ass came up in EVERY damn article I skimmed. So it can still come back to bite you sir'mam

  • Kita Williams

    now I need to hit play to see the fake tears y'all talking about LOL

    Edit: ok so I made it to 13 seconds and saw her wipe 3 times at her face LMFAO I cannot

  • Miss Thang

    girl, these fake white woman damsel in distress tears...

  • Kbellaluvvs

    Right she just celebrated her 5 million a few weeks ago..

  • Miss Thang

    "sir'mam" lmaoooooo lawd

  • Kbellaluvvs

    He's just happy the focus is not on him anymore.

  • Coco Mcluvin

    Well, where's the tweets?

  • Coco Mcluvin

    I second that! People got to be smarter...

  • Kbellaluvvs

    He was friends with her so I'm not sure why he was so quick to throw her under the bus. She only made a video because he tweeted something to the effect of her not posting a video to apologize so she must be guilty, him having 9.1 mil subscribers didn't help her lol

  • Miss Thang

    I bet his ass been WAITING at the do' for a good reason to throw her ass under the bus. Damn fake ass "friends".

  • Kbellaluvvs

    But what makes it gaggy is the girl still has over 4 million subs so she is getting paid well by YouTube as long as her videos are still monetized smh.

  • Kbellaluvvs

    Jeffree is the Nicki type. He feels like all these bishes are his sons and how dare them have this many followers.

  • FukkFolks2018

    ???

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    Exactly what I want to know

  • Elizabeth

    Sandra, are you going to report on a similar story of Adam Catzavelos "apololying"?
    In the original video Adam could be seen on a foreign beach giving a weather report:
    "Let me give you a weather forecast here; blue skies‚ beautiful day‚ amazing sea and not one k****r (derogatory term to black people) in sight. f***ing heaven on earth."

    The South African people are calling for the people of South Africa not to do business with his family-owned business, St George's Fine Foods where he is a board member and shareholder.
    Nike temporarily closes Nike South Africa stores because his wife Kelly Catzavelos is brand merchandise manager for Nike Africa and calls were made on social media to boycott the sports brand.

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    Here’s her tweet from 2012:

    “Tip for all black people if you pull ur pants up you can run from the police faster… #yourwelcome,” she posted in 2012.

  • Yui

    They turn them on quick don’t they?

  • Gail

    Funny, I've never heard of her; so when I saw her picture, I thought she was black LOL....oh the irony!

  • Miss Thang

    just as easily as a water faucet...

  • Nunya Business

    I don't have them but they say something like here's a tip for black people, you can run faster from the police if you pull your pants up. That is a very loose interpretation of what she said but that was the basic gist of it.

  • Miss Thang

    She's just upset because she's lost her sponsorships and now wont be invited to Hollywood parties and hang out with the Kardashians and go on those expensive ass trips where they get all these amazing free products and make up. Oh well. Non-racist people deserve those opportunities.

  • Miss Thang

    the ironic part is now that I'm taking a real good look at her, she probably does have a black grandparent or greatgrandparent, looking like an octaroon smh and got the nerve to be racist against black people smh

  • Nunya Business

    This whole thing started because of Jeffree Starr. He and Laura Lee used to be bfs but fell out some time ago. Then Laura and some more people posted a pic with the middle finger as sub to him and then all hell broke loose.

  • HeyGirlHey

    People only apologize after they have been caught and their lifestyle is on the line. If you're truly sorry the apology would have happened in 2012 when you said it.

  • Miss Thang

    Jefree is evil. Laura thought he was her real friend. Folks better learn you cannot be friends with folks you do business with!

  • Being bad is way more fun

    People are so f n stupid !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Its 2018 and so many examples of people saying things like this and what has happened to their careers but o well she deserves everything that comes her way negative about this !!!!!!

  • Patricia

    yeah, that "all black people" part little racist heffa...maybe should have said "thugs".

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Mines was 18 and 19 they both got married father left before my mom.. He went into service came back scooped her when she graduated and came straight to ATL and moved in with my aunt till they got on their feet ... The rest is history ... The rest that stayed... Dying from cancer or still on the same shyt SMH .... They got thee fugg on... The house we sold over there chile... Left that shyt too... Fugg Alabama ??

    True

  • Miss Thang

    She needs to lose more than that. I think all of those numbers are fake anyway. How many people are in the U.S.?

  • Tammie Reed

    I follow a lot of beauty bloggers but NEVER heard of her lol.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    THIS!!!

    That's why apologies mean nothing to me. Someone told me, I must really be hurt, to not accept someone's apology. I said "Actually I'm not hurt at all. Never was. I just know the apology is not sincere, so I wont let them waste my time."

    When I did something wrong, I picked up the phone or paid them a visit and said I was sorry. No excuses for my bs. Just a sincere "Im sorry for what I did." And it wasn't because something I said or did had just gone public or people were side eyeing my behavior.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    She's not sorry for her words. She's sorry it was exposed. There's a difference.

  • Soon2BWife

    People who don’t mass delete especially knowing they were internet trolls, terrorist, thugs and racists deserve to outed and receive any consequences that result.

  • Yup, I said it

    Tough titty, toots.

    The real question is how did her uglass become a beauty blogger?

    Based on the video she looks black to me. Mama had her hands in the cookie jar and didn't tell her.

  • Pebbles

    She looks black to me also. Mama had her hand in the cookie jar and failed to mention it.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    The hardest thing for white people to do is to apologize and correct their racist behavior.

    They whine and cry as if they are the ones mistreated.

    The only thing she sorry about is getting caught

  • Coffee1st

    One of these tweets read: “How do you blindfold a Chinese person? Put floss over their eyes! #Dumbgook”.

    And, another used the N word, saying: “Ni**as in Paris? Whaaaaat I though they couldn’t afford to leave Compton! LOL!”.

    She said if black people would wear their pants up they would t have a problem running from the police. Also she said there is black people vacationing in Paris I thought black people could only afford to go to Compton. Some other things too but she got what she deserved

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    The folks on the ID, Oxygen and Tvone channels act better than she did and it's hard to beat them in bad acting.

    Why did not you post the tweet?
    It said,
    if black people want to run from cops then pull your pants up. Your welcome”

  • Faux Gibbler

    The tweet wasn’t half as bad compare to Jeffree Star flat out calling people the N word. She made a reference to black people pulling their pants up so they could run from police faster.

  • Faux Gibbler

    I didn’t see that one about Paris.

    Hopefully I'm wrong, but I legit think Sandra Rose enjoys defaming black people. I have a sneaky suspicion that if this lady was BLACK, she would have quoted the tweet and commented. Smh.

    Man listen. You HAVE to read The Iceman Inheritance!!!!!!!!!!!!! (If you haven't already). It's fascinating!

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    Yeah but it's still not right I would have been ok with it if she had singled out one person instead of making such a a broad statement

  • SpillyNillie

    Somebody sprinkle some Voda in this Bish eyes so they can water! And you're still stupid and ignorant Laura if you really think we believe this Fake Ass Apology!! GIRL BYE!

  • http://www.NeCola.Mayvenn.com Chile_Pleeze

    she stated "[n-words] in Paris"..not black people.. she went all the way there with that tweet

  • Li-Wright

    Hmmm...she was prob. being funny, but it's true. everytime I see a police video of a young black guy running, he's got those low slung pants on and he's hopping down the street, not even running. THAT tells you how stupid criminals are.

  • Li-Wright

    And it was years ago. She was probably in college or hanging with some stupid people. I think there should be a cut-off date for when you can dig up tweets by people. Anything later than 5 years don't count.

    She is black but she does like to defaming black people and trust she is no beauty....

  • parisjok

    oh, when was the last time a father got pregnant and carried baby for NINE months and went thru the worst pain possible during labor and actually gave birth to a brand new beautiful human being? better go ask somebody.

    can't make a baby without the MOM'S egg and dad's sperm. why do u think the dad's sperm should ONLY count for the race of the baby?

  • Chuck

    Wow! Racist prick; however, I agree about the baggy pants- but this applies to any race. I could I am poor because I've never visited Compton.
    BTW, Jay & Kanye told her that n*ggas are in Paris; so, she should have known that some Blacks can afford to travel to Paris. :-)

  • Faux Gibbler

    Being racist. Saying racist things. It’s both sides that do it.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Do you know what racism (which is white supremacy) is and what defines a person as being racist?

  • Rick’s Cabaret

    Time to pay the pied piper. ?

  • Maxx Arr

    The very first video of it's (NEW HER) should had been the apologise saying (People of the world, I had been a racist person) ...
    Then.. even if anyone came to spit that in your face, everyone would know you fixed what you did.
    But no... you simply left it behind, and different to what movies and tv says, time don't fix things, time make things get worst, rotten, smelling, and growing. You are the one who need to fix the shit you do.
