Remember when I blindly hated Russel Brand? I fucked up.
"They’re in a better position to judge than I am."
I think this is how most open minded people who value communication, connection, and are willing to learn from others think.
…Did… Did Russel Brand just explain how to react to being called out on something?
ATTENTION!!! THIS is the CEO of the popular online store shopjeen (Erin Yogasundram) proudly wearing fucking black face on her Instagram page. DO NOT support this business. I am appalled that I gave money to this bigoted scumbag. Not to mention, their website had LOADS of “omg ghetto fabulous!!” garments and accessories modeled by - you guessed it - white models (sometimes donning cornrows). PLEASE spread the word as I know that this store is popular for Tumblr users.
Hi, so this post is utter bullshit.
If you took 10 seconds to go to this women’s blog before reblogging, you could easily find out that the person in this photo is not Erin. Erin is a WOC and looks like this:
From her tumblr, she wrote this:
The person dressed up as lil wayne in that photo is a small child. The caption, which was left out of the now viral tumblr post defaming me and my company was shaming and mocking the ridiculous costume choice.
and when the threats did not stop:
Again I’m NOT a small child with blue eyes. I’m a WOC, small business owner who is now receiving death threats due to a disgusting, defaming tumblr post that is surfacing. I did Instagram that photo on my personal account, with a caption MOCKING the ridiculousness of the Lil Wayne costume. It was pretty convenient to leave that part out, and frame me to be the person in the photo (who I repeat is clearly a CHILD). I am a full-figured, brown skinned woman with colored hair and brown eyes. Not to mention, I would NEVER do this.
I employ an extremely talented, diverse team and they make Shop Jeen the amazing success that it is. The thought that the spread of this inaccurate post hindering the company’s growth makes me sick to my stomach.
PLEASE fact check before you reblog stuff like this- this is serious.
I am absolutely distraught that my company’s name is being dragged through the mud without probable cause. This is traumatizing.
But of course, have I forgotten where I am? Ah yes, the land of tumblr where gullible is always written on the ceiling. Or so they say.
This really sucks for her. Tumblr is the worst at fact checking before spreading shit.
Please, folks, before you go spreading scandelous “facts” you’ve been told about an individual, take a moment to stop, take a deep breath, and think really, really hard; HOW MUCH DAMAGE WILL THIS ALLEGATION CAUSE TO THIS INDIVIDUAL IF I TURN OUT TO BE COMPLETELY MISINFORMED AND TAKING THE STORY OUT OF CONTEXT.
If that amount is “any at all”, please take the time to contact the individual and ask them to explain the situation from their side, research, find the source posts, really do your homework before you cause irreparable grief that could be circulating for years after you send your accusations out into the wilds of the internet.
You can’t take posts back once they start circulating. Everyone will post without thinking or fact checking and get a story completely wrong sometimes, don’t be wrong about things that will bring serious harm to other people.

no one crafter should have all this power
Shame can be a powerful tool. But does it really work on cats, or does it just encourage them?
