The 20-year-old native of Oregon, whose YouTube channel has 2.38 million subscribers, worked with Nudestix to create a & # 39; Summer Proof & # 39; to make makeup kit launched earlier this month.

However, many of her fans and followers have criticized the summer and the brand, pointing out that the shades of the bronzer, blush, highlighter and lip color are only suitable for people with light skin tones.

& # 39; I love your summer but this makeup kit is not for everyone …. especially those with dark skin tones … & # 39 ;, another user said.

A fourth user said: – Are you kidding? You really don't care about darker people? & # 39;

Many of the followers of the summer also referred to a recent incident in which the YouTuber and a number of other influencers collaborate with the fashion brand Shop – and was also accused of a lack of diversity.

Scandal: The setback is only a few weeks after the summer took place on a branded Coachella trip with the start-up fashion brand Dote Shopping, in which several members reported unfair behavior

According to BuzzFeed, a number of black women on the brand-sponsored Coachella trip reported that the fashion startup had treated women with a different color than white members of the group.

Summer responded to the allegations Instagram at that time I wrote: & # 39; On issues related to diversity and Coachella, I wanted to apologize for any involvement with the women of color during this trip.

& # 39; I stand ready, love and respect everyone who talks about their experience and I really wish it could have been different.

& # 39; If I had been more aware of everything that was going on at the weekend, I know that I (and I'm sure the other girls too) could have done something to change something.

& # 39; Because we are all more aware of it afterwards, I feel it is a bit harder to approach.

& # 39; I just know that I will no longer work with this brand.

& # 39; I asked to be removed from their app and social media because I refuse to stand by a brand that causes this kind of discomfort to these strong young women.

Controversial: a number of black women on the Coachella journey brand reported after the journey that the fashion startup had treated women of color differently than white members of the group

& # 39; I really hope that all hateful words and negative comments can come to an end because, 1. No one but the girls on that trip really know how it went, and 2. We are all people who work every day to learn and improve, & she added.

And now her followers blame her for not paying enough attention to the scandal

& # 39; Wow that she really learned NOTHING from the Dote situation … not even surprised & # 39 ;, wrote one, while another said: & # 39; She has learned absolutely nothing from dote lmao, I had it expects. & # 39;

& # 39; Very disappointed with how you dealt with the Dote situation and then released a collaboration with one color range & # 39 ;, a third user said. & # 39; I thought we learned from Tarte's mistakes last year. & # 39;

In response to the situation, Nudestix told BuzzFeed that the collaboration with Summer contains her personal favorite shades.

The company added that it has products in & # 39; different shades & # 39; supplies to be suitable for different skin tones.

& # 39; It is very important to note that the Summer Mckeen collaboration is just a selection of the favorite colors and textures of the summer that she personally likes to wear & # 39; read the statement.

& # 39; All our products are available in different shades, individually, for our customers covering different ages, genders and ethnicities, and we are proud of that. & # 39;
