YouTuber and makeup guru Jeffree Star has donated US $20,000 to cover the funeral costs for one of his fans.
25-year-old Kevin Bacon was found dead in December last year after going on a Grindr date in Michigan. He was a huge fan of Jeffree Star and had numerous tattoos of the makeup mogul.
In a Twitter post, Jeffree writes: “RIP KEVIN. I’m devastated to hear of the passing of someone from Michigan who lived their life fearlessly and was taken too soon. Please help his family in this horrible time.”
The YouTube star shared a link to a GoFundMe page Kevin’s family created to cover the funeral costs. More than $37,000 has been raised so far.
It’s understood that after Kevin’s parents pay for his funeral service, any leftover donations will be used to set up a scholarship in honour of their son.
