Jeffree Star Wants to Buy a 'Cute Pink Mansion' in Gay Hell After Elijah Daniel's New Purchase

In celebration of Pride Month and in spite of the Trump Administration, YouTuber Elijah Daniel bought a small town in Michigan and makeup mogul Jeffree Star is in full support.

"Ahead of Pride Month, Trump's administration put a ban on embassy's flying of pride flags," Daniel tweeted Monday afternoon. "So, as of today, I am now the owner of Hell, Michigan. I bought the whole town."

"My first act as owner, I have renamed my town to Gay Hell, MI," he continued. "The only flags allowed to fly are pride [flags]."

In response to Daniel's recent purchase, Star tweeted in full support and wanted to make a purchase of his own.

"As a part-time Michigan resident myself, I'd love to buy some land in Gay Hell," Star tweeted in response. "A cute pink mansion on a hill, nothing too fancy?"

In an interview with Newsweek, Daniel previously revealed he had a past connection with the Michigan city and its unofficial mayor, John Colone. He stood in as mayor for a day in 2017, where he banned straight people from the town.

"Growing up, I was always told that homosexuals would go to Hell," he wrote in his amended ban at the time. "Now the heterosexuals are trying to take this from us too."

It is not clear how much it cost Daniel to partially purchase Gay Hell, but he and Colone have been planning the "takeover" for months. The official, current population of the Michigan city isn't immediately available; however, according to a Traveller article, the population is around 76 as of last year.

Following both Daniel and Star's tweets, many Twitter users voiced their support, including television personality Kathy Griffin.

"Acres and acres of GAY," Griffin tweeted.

"Omg ... zero homophobia?? SIGN ME UP PLEASE," Twitter user @ArtsyMarioo responded.

"Make sure there's a glittery guest house," fellow makeup artist Garrett Hahn responded to Star.

The "ban" that Daniel is protesting came from the Trump Administration earlier this month. Reportedly, the Trump Administration was denying requests from U.S. embassies to fly pride flags on official flag poles.

In previous years, flying the Pride Flag on official embassy flagpoles was permitted in the month of June but there has been an obvious shift. Since the news came out of the display request being denied, it seemed like a complete 180-degree shift from the Trump's tweet last month to "celebrate LGBT Pride Month and recognize the outstanding contributions LGBT people have made."

"As we celebrate LGBT Pride Month and recognize the outstanding contributions LGBT people have made to our great Nation, let us also stand in solidarity with the many LGBT people who live in dozens of countries worldwide that punish, imprison, or even execute individuals on the basis of their sexual orientation," the President tweeted on May 31. "My Administration has launched a global campaign to decriminalize homosexuality and invite all nations to join us in this effort!"
