YouTube stars Jeffree Star and Shane Dawson shut down Canadian tech darling Shopify
YouTube megastars Jeffree Star and Shane Dawson were set to launch their new makeup line, Conspiracy, on Canadian e-commerce site Shopify, but the site couldn't handle the influx of fans on the page, which eventually crashed.

Dawson confirmed that Shopify was trying to solve the issue, but fans of the duo were not pleased. Many people who attempted to buy products were confused about whether their orders went through.
Nothing's worse than finding out the thing you want is sold out.
Okay....I'm officially a little pissed. Not @JeffreeStar or @shanedawson but @Shopify. I have been reloading the page for almost 4 hours and haven't even seen product. I want to buy the #ShaneXJeffreeStar bundle. Will it still be available??😥 pic.twitter.com/Fzs0Oi5kiS— PoisonPricessIvy (@IvyMoon666) November 1, 2019
Others felt straight up betrayed by the Ottawa-based tech firm.
One fan also wondered how much the crash would hurt Star and Dawson's pockets.
At the same time, it's pretty impressive that they managed to crash the site.
The site did get fixed eventually, and, according to Star, products are flying off the digital aisles.
I can confirm now that every single unit of the #ConspiracyPalette has sold out ❌ I’m so proud of you @shanedawson!!!— Jeffree Star (@JeffreeStar) November 1, 2019
The website issues have us devastated but thank you all for being patient!! 😰👽 #shanedawsonxjeffreestar
I just heard a collective sigh of relief from their millions of stans.
