Since the Tati Westbrook bombshell dropped, James Charles has been keeping a pretty low profile. In a tweet last week, he thanked his fans for their support while he took some time away from social media.
We assumed he was taking time away because of Tati’s video Breaking My Silence.
In the video, Tati comes forward with new details about her drama with James Charles last year. For those that don’t remember, last year Tati shared a tearful story on Instagram in which she talked about being used by someone close to her. Many speculated that she was talking about James Charles. Tati confirmed the rumors when she uploaded a 43-minute video slamming James for endorsing her competitor SugarBearHair and using her to further his career. (That video has been deleted, but you can find it here.) She also claimed that James allegedly harassed a waiter at an event. Jeffree Star made similar accusations on Twitter. (Read the full story here.) In her new video Breaking My Silence, Tati lashes out at Jeffree Star and Shane Dawson. She claims they egged her on to call out James.
After the video, there was a lot of backlash. People have been calling for Jeffree and Shane to be canceled. Jeffree has not spoken out publicly since Tati’s video. Shane, who was already facing backlash over his controversial skits, has denied Tati’s claims.
James was spotted by paparazzi and asked his thoughts on Tati’s video and Shane Dawson.
James said that he didn’t want to talk about Tati’s video. He said that he’s staying out of the drama. When asked whether Shane should be forgiven for his blackface skits, James said that things should be looked at on a case-by-case basis.
Has James already forgiven Shane? We’re curious how he feels about Jeffree. Let us know what you think in the comments.
