    James Charles Controversies

    James is a very famous Youtuber, musician, and entrepreneur, but he is also a very controversial man. Let's look at a couple of controversies that caused him over 3 million subscribers in around four days.

    Ebola joke 

    In 2017, Charles was heavily criticized after he passed a tweet about having Ebola and he later issued an apology saying that he was sorry for what he said, as:

    I am extremely sorry for what I said. There are no excuses. No one owes me forgiveness, but I've learned a lot from the experience. I hope that the people who might look up to me will be able to learn from my mistakes and not repeat them.

    Origin Story 

    In March 2017, another YouTube make-up artist Thomas Halbert posted a screenshot of Charles' previous interview and claimed his origin story to be fake. Still, later, Halbert faced backlash for editing the photograph to mislead James Charles' audiences.

    Transphobic Comment Issues

    In April of 2019, Charles said he was 5.5 on the Kinsey scale and said that he has found some girls attractive, and it seemed like he was undermining Transgenders as 'trans guys' and passed hate comments by saying that she was into 'transgender people' for a moment.

    There have been girls in the past who I've thought were very, very beautiful. There's also been trans guys in the past, too, that I was really, really into for a moment in time.

    Charles then apologized for releasing the statement and said they were unintentional but somehow sounded transphobic.

    Tati Westbrook's Controversial Confession 

    On May 10, 2019, long-time collaborator Tati Westbrook uploaded a 43-minute long video "BYE SISTER ..." and there she was seen heavily criticizing James. 

    In the 45 minutes long drama, we saw Tati accusing James of manipulating people's sexuality, using fame, power, and money to play with people's emotions, and being disloyal to people who helped him get to the top.

    After the video was released, James saw a vast 3.3 million subscriber loss in four days, which is YouTube's highest viewership loss record to date. 

    Charles then uploaded an 8-minute response video to Tati entitled "Tati," apologizing to Westbrook and her husband. The video is one of the most disliked videos on YouTube so far.
