Star responded to a fan's tweet that showed some of Kevin Bacon's several Jeffree Star-themed tattoos, saying "RIP KEVIN šŸ˜„ Iā€™m devastated to hear of the passing of someone from Michigan who lived their life fearlessly and was taken too soon šŸ’” Please help his family in this horrible time."  Star shared the GoFundMe link, which had topped $28,000 before midnight on Saturday.

We reached out to Jeffree Star Cosmetics but have not yet received a response.
