Filipina beauty vlogger Michelle Dy is facing legal threats for her new YouTube series titled "MD Approved". The videos have since been deleted after American make-up artist Jeffree Star accused her of stealing his copyrighted series of the same concept. 

 

A post shared by Jeffree Star (@jeffreestar) on

"You're full of complete sh*t," Jeffree commented on the Pinay's video. "Stealing my "Approved" series and trademarked title is pathetic... but that's what boring unoriginal people do. My lawyer will reach out to you shortly."

Michelle later took down the videos and apologized to Jeffree who she admitted as one of the YouTube gurus she looks up to. "Recently, I uploaded 2 new videos in my youtube channel which was the "MD Approved New Series" inspired by Jeffree, while it was clearly stated in the description box in the 2 videos that these new series in my channel were Pinay version and inspired by international YouTubers, I was unaware that "Jeffree Star Approved" series is copyrighted in America," she wrote.

"I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely apologize to Jeffree Star if in any way or another, I may have violated your rights from the use of your trademark."

According to her, such an incident is the first time for the Pinay beauty community and has gone on to thank the support she has gotten from loved ones.
