Make-Up Is a Weird Way to Talk About Assault
“I undoubtedly suppose it could be ridiculous and irresponsible to only come again to social media and faux like nothing occurred and transfer on with repeatedly scheduled make-up programming,” James Charles says inside the first two minutes of his new video. Good begin!
The incontrovertible fact that he continues on to color his face and inform humorous tales to the digicam (primarily…’repeatedly scheduled make-up programming’) whereas speaking sexual assault has some followers calling him hypocritical, or simply questioning the format altogether.

Something about James Charles doing a make-up look whereas discussing his inappropriate habits with youngsters doesn’t mesh effectively with my spirit pic.twitter.com/5RnsoCKJHP— ✨ iCannot ✨ (@makeupbyjoxlyn) July 2, 2021
Essentially James Charles has been accused of ‘grooming’ and messaging underage males (aka boys) in sexually inappropriate ways- and has determined to point out that he has “actually come to phrases with plenty of points I’ve been ignoring for fairly some time now” (his phrases within the video) by chatting casually whereas portray his face. Some of the informal chat even contains joking and laughing about humorous issues that occurred to him this summer season.
(At about 25 minutes into the video, you’ll be able to take heed to James chortle concerning the “absolute blast” he had taking part in kickball and archery with associates at “Camp Charles,” the him-themed vacation he hosted throughout his latest YouTube absence.)
It’s a bit cheesy at finest, as James is creating wealth off this apology/storytime/make-up video. At worst, it is all downright unsettling to observe.
Honestly, it actually bothers me that James Charles monetized his “holding myself accountable” video & the latest “an open dialog” video but he didn’t donate one single cent to any group related w/ serving to victims of individuals like himself.

This is uncommon as a result of James says in his new video that you’ll find his extra detailed opinions concerning the allegations in his outdated video- however you’ll be able to’t as a result of that video is gone.
Fans suppose it is also uncommon as a result of the theme of his apology movies has been openness and accountability, and it is tough to stay open to accountability if you delete issues like that.
While he may need deleted it for authorized causes, however individuals can not help criticizing this man’s decisions. Let’s hope the most recent vid stays up!
