Lauran’s career started as an Instagram influencer, posting eye makeup pictures of herself on the platform. Shortly after, she launched her YouTube channel in 2013 and uploaded makeup tutorials and tips.

After getting enough success from her makeup collection, Laura dropped her fashion line called “Nu#ie Patootie.” She offers numerous things on this brand, including earrings, loungewear, clothes, pants, oversized T-shirts, and much more.

Laura Lee apology
Laura Lee, a beauty guru, in 2018 found herself in the heart of a scandal after some of her millions of subscribers discovered racist tweets she sent in 2012. Even after a video apology, others are arguing she is “canceled.”
It wouldn’t be the first time an “influencer” has gotten into problems for something they put online. Fans of Lee, who notably ended her engagement with the notorious Jeffree Star and decried his discriminating conduct, are branding her a hypocrite and unsubscribing in droves.
“I wish I was better six years ago. But I can’t pray for the past, I can only pray for the future,” Lee said in the video, before addressing the “hurt” she may have caused Star as well.
Unfortunately for the YouTuber, who only recently celebrated reaching the 5-million-subscriber mark, the apology isn’t saving her from losing hundreds of followers by the minute.
