Jeffree Star is never too far from controversy, and it would seem that the makeup mogul has pissed off the internet yet again with his most recent advertising campaign.

Star unveiled new advertisements for his upcoming Androgyny makeup palette coming out on March 4th, but not everyone is cool with images. Specifically, people are accusing Star of darkening model Nikita Dragun's skin tone to the point of blackface.

People voiced their anger over the alleged cultural appropriation via Twitter.

However, Dragun defended the campaign pictures by insisting that she simply got a spray tan.

She also tweeted this throwback picture to her younger self with family so fans could compare and contrast her coloring.

Dragun often uploads seflies with different wigs, makeup, and lighting, and has been accused of appropriating black culture in the past.

Star also weighed in on the controversy with a simple tweet of support for his friend.

Star has been accused of racism before, and his ex-best friend Kat Von D brought the receipts proving that the rumors of Star's troubling past were indeed true.

On top of his disturbing racist past, Star also has been accused of rampant misogyny, cyber bullying and promoting drug use, but apologized by saying that he was young and tried to be "shocking" on the internet. Star also feuded with Kylie Jenner on the internet over lipstick last year.
