YouTube Star Laura Lee Deletes Twitter After Being Exposed for Past Racism
Ruby Rose isn’t the only celebrity who deleted her Twitter over the weekend. YouTube beauty guru Laura Lee also exited the social media platform after she faced backlash for a racist tweet that just recently surfaced.
Back in 2012, the 29-year-old YouTuber wrote, “Tip for all black people if you pull ur pants up you can run from the police faster.. #yourwelcome”
Laura was heavily (and understandably) criticized for the horrifically racist words, but instead of responding to fans’ concerns or apologizing for her past actions, she decided to deactivate her account. And while the racism is obviously the main issue, the fact that she basically ran from the situation is another thing that is seriously ticking people off.
Laura Lee was just exposed as a raging racist and instead of apologizing she deleted all her tweets AND her twitter. No apology. She’s a coward & still a racist. Yikes

The beauty guru’s Instagram account is still up and running, but her comments are being infiltrated with hate messages.
