YouTube Star Gabriel Zamora Cuts Ties with “Toxic” BFF Manny MUA
If you never paid attention to people in the YouTube beauty community, we highly suggest you do so now because the drama is hot hot HOT. Last week, beauty gurus Laura Lee, Gabriel Zamora and Nikita Dragun were all exposed for past racism, causing a sh*t storm of less-than-authentic apologies, backlash and more.
In addition to being slammed for using the N-word on Twitter several years ago, Gabriel came under fire because he seemingly shaded ex-friend Jeffree Star by posting a picture of himself, Laura, Manny MUA and Nikita giving the middle finger and captioning it, “Bitch is bitter because without him we’re doing better.”
The 25-year-old deleted the tweet pretty quickly and apologized for the shadiness of it, but is now revealing more details about what when down in the aftermath and why he decided to, as a result, cut Manny out of his life for good.
Gabby says Manny (and his team of publicists and managers) came up with the plan for Gabby to take down the tweet and take full blame for the diss toward Jeffree.
The Texas native explains that he was taken aback by that request because the 27-year-old was seemingly trying to act innocent, but that’s not the case at all.
“Yeah, I may have started this, but let’s not act like you don’t feel like this…if not worse,” Gabby explains in a video called ‘My Truth.’ “Because I’ve heard you say worse. Real friends don’t throw friends under the bus.”
Ultimately, Gabriel decided, Manny is the “toxic” factor in his life “who constantly keeps burning bridges and using people.”
He tells his viewers, “There’s a certain individual that I do need to cut out of my life because it’s always just been toxic. There’s the same factor in all these negative situations around your life because I’ve had a lot of friends and there’s always these negative things going on and that seems to be the remaining factor…and that’s Manny.”
GZ says he “thought cutting off a friend would be bad, but it felt good…[because] that was a toxic person.”
Manny has allegedly been trying to contact Gabriel, apologizing for liking tweets that threw him under the bus, but Gabriel isn’t having it and hasn’t responded.
The Lunar Beauty has not yet responded to Gabriel’s video.
