There’s a discussion going on on Doe’s personal Facebook page about her latest blog post.
I made the following reply - submitting it here incase she deletes it and blocks me, which seems likely:
An important point is that you do not get to choose what is and is not offensive to other people or other cultures, because you do not have the same perspectives and experiences as them. You do not get to say “I don’t find this offensive and I don’t see why you would, so it’s not.” That’s not how it works.
It’s ultimately just really insensitive to try to profit from someone else’s cultural background, especially without having taken the time to actually research the culture and present an interpretation that is at least somewhat authentic.
i don’t understand why lime crime fans STILL continue to back doe and her shit after all of the evidence pointing towards her shitty business tactics. her make-up is poor quality; she used to (and probably still does) repackage wholesale micas and advertise them as 100% handmade, original colors; she is OBSESSED with amy of sugarpill cosmetics and tries to steal her fanbase; and now THIS racist garbage! i know there are more shady as hell things that she’s done, but it would warrant a full on rant. ): god fuck doe deere.
