Another day, another YouTube controversy surrounding James Charles defending himself, this time for returning to social media a little too soon for fans’ liking…
What’s up guys, it’s Sussan Mourad back here on Clevver News, and it looks like James Charles is officially on the mend after his major ‘cancellation’ last week, but fans aren’t too convinced of his so-called “break.”
Now, based on common practice around the YouTube scene and what we’ve learned on the whole “Cancelled-YouTuber-Protocol”, is that said YouTuber announces their digital detox, and usually doesn’t return back to the scene for at least 7-14 days… amiright?
BUT although James has yet to post another YouTube video, fans are questioning his motives after he’s been noticeably active on social media, partying it up with celebs and supporting his famous friends. Case in point, James posted a photo yesterday afternoon (as well as insta stories the evening before) supporting fellow makeup mogul Kylie Jenner during the launch of her new skincare line, and that’s when many fans started to call BS on the whole ‘social media detox’ thing.
Based on the social media comments, it clearly rubbed fans the wrong way to which he was forced to defend himself yet again due to his quick return, taking to Twitter to post a series of tweets clarifying his social media activity. He said QUOTE, “I said I wouldn’t be filming for a bit and would pop in on my other socials, point being to focus on living rather than forcing content. Healing for me consists of doing things that make me happy, such as playing with makeup & being social, instead of laying in bed all day.”
He continued by saying, “Social media is a part of my life and I like keeping up with all of you, and I know a lot of you like keeping up with me! Posting a few stories of me smiling doesn’t mean I’m “better” or my break was for sympathy. It means I’m trying to move on with my life and better myself!”
The reason for the backlash came after James posted his final video “No More Lies” attempting to clear his name, when he told fans he was going to try and power down as much as possible and focus on in-person interaction.
The fan backlash even went as far as followers making comments on his picture with Kylie Jenner poking fun that she supposedly “unfollowed” him during all the drama. One user wrote, “but she unfollowed you lol”. To which James clapped back saying QUOTE, “She never followed in the first place lol stop believing everything you read on the internet.” Touche…
Also, P.s. we also couldn’t help notice Sugar Bear Hair added their two cents in the comments section with 4 heart eye emoji’s.
Today is also James’ 20th birthday, and last night via James’ insta stories, it appears he was having a low key celebration with friends and a birthday cake. James beamed and smiled while everyone sang “Happy Birthday” to him, but the real moment was in the next post where we see the message on top of the cake that read, “Happy Birthday So Famous!”
OMG, Not sure who decided on the cake message but James included a caption with the pic that said “too soon @jesssusgomez” with two skull emoji’s
I’m just gonna say, it’s great to see James trying to move on from all the drama and getting on with his life, and what better way to do it than hanging out with Kylie Jenner at her epic launch party! But I’m curious to know what you guys think about James being active on social media? And also do you think he will have a big birthday celebration this week?
