James Charles was apparently sexting a minor. We are posting this under the BGC Moderator account so users who have just tried to post can't delete. It is also easier for us to edit the posts and lock for clean up.
Everyone please adhere to the rules, and remember we have yet to hear James Charles's version of events. We do not want to have a repeat of the Tati/James drama.Please remember there are minors involved, do not link to ANY personal information. This isn't about someone annoying being cancelled it's about there being a victim. Do not celebrate this happening. Be respectful, and follow the rules. Please post all updates here. Please tag a mod if we have missed any updates.
In the words of u/silence1545:
"Listen, but verify. Trust, but confirm."
In this sub, I often see people say that J*'s fame is a result of the glass elevator theory. For reference, the Glass Elevator means that:
"men in female‐dominated jobs benefit from a so‐called glass elevator or glass escalator, that is, a set of invisible factors that facilitate their professional advancement. "
However, I don't see people talk about how much James and Manny MUA benefit from this. To be completely frank, neither of them were that good at makeup when they blew up, and I don't think a woman with the same talent would have seen the same success. For example, when JC got his Covergirl campaign, his eyebrows and blending were ROUGH.
This post isn't to hate, but to call out the differences in success not based on one's talent, but on their gender expression.

People are probably gonna think I’m reaching but he’s always bothered me with this. When the situation with AsianDoll happened, he responds so aggressively towards black woman trying to inform him. Same with Dababy and that Jojo Siwa wordplay line. He’ll jump to insert himself in topics around black people, but won’t call out his friends for partying, being predators, or their racism?
Anyone is allowed to talk about whatever they want to. But as a black woman, it irks me seeing a white man use AAVE and black mannerisms while replying to black people in an aggressive manner. And then he’ll send all of his followers at them and won’t delete tweets or apologize.
He’s a hypocrite and a clout chaser and should have lost his platform a long time ago.
Edit: Thank you for the rewards! I’m glad a lot of people feel the same way. It’s very tiring being a person of color, in my case a black woman and having to see this constant antiblackness and racism from people who try to profit off your culture.
To think, I live in Canada, I went to a girls school that allowed trans girls happily and used the right pronouns for anyone and on the last day of the week I'd be dropped off at a decrepit building that allowed boys with anger problems to pull your scarf, made the girls just babysit for 5 hours and eat the greasy, cheap pizza in thin slices after the boys had.
I hated that place, all you'd do is sit on the floor and justify why jihad is okay, and in the context of this memory, "Ok" because "The West needs to realize the corruption in its youth, men need to be men again and fight for Allah." From this stemmed the topic of how "The Gays" were ruining what men are, and this teachers pet girl, I'm sure some of you know the kind, the kind that snitched that you weren't wearing a hijab for 3 seconds or bullied you for not being as modest and halal as her and then acted good girl for the teachers, ha. Anyways, she spoke up about how "Grossed and appalled" she was to see ads for James Charles eyeshadow, and so very disappointed ):^(/s) to see her friends buy it. At that moment I genuinely felt like maybe they could just smell the gay on me or something, because at that point, while I hated God, I still believed the whole 'He is everywhere and knows everything" and the fear I felt, thinking that I had a Gay stamp on my head that everyone could see and I didn't even know was there.
Well, she started the rant, the rant that kept us from the top tier greasy pizza from an unnamed white box. It started off normal, just like something I would hear from my dad. "It's not our life, so we shouldn't particularly care, maybe they'll get called back to Allah, but since we should not care, we will not help them or be near them." and when I thought that was it, poor dumb me, he started again, this time actually angry, voice raised, going on and on about how he had a daughter, and that if a Kutta (dog, in this context gay or trans person) even came near her, he'd beat them, he'd knock their teeth out, he sure as hell wouldn't even allow his daughter to be in the same school as one. I almost cried, combined with this imaginary gay stamp on my head, I was scared that maybe I'd become a news headline.
To make it worse, he kept going, and now we reach the title. Teachers Pet, actually looking shaken, seeing a teacher go fucking ballistic, tried to placate him by saying that "Well guys like James Charles wouldn't even be allowed in our schools." ^((side note, does anyone hate... keep reading on reddit ➡
We all know that accusing James Charles was a huge factor in Shane’s downfall... Now that James Charles is being accused of the same thing again, do you think Shane/Ryland will insert themselves somehow? Or would that be too risky/stupid of them?
I'm so tired of seeing James Charles trending all the time. His personality seems super fake, and all the guy did was become the first male ambassador for cover girl.
This may sound weird but it's true. James Charles is the love of my life and I actively engage in a romantic relationship with him. I make sure I eat when he eats, sleep when he sleeps, if he watches a movie I make sure I am watching the same one in perfect synchronization. It is a beautiful relationship. The only problem is he doesn't know we're in it. I am too shy to approach him so I just watched from a distance and try to enjoy our time together alone... But I want more. How do I elevated our relationship to the next level? Would James ever accept me? I'm not famous afterall. I moved to LA from Scotland to be with him and have spent all my money in the process. I need help. I don't know what to do
Am I the only one utterly fed up of all the constant name dropping in his makeup tutorials as well as the boring Tik Toker collab vids? I used to really enjoy his makeup videos cause I genuinely think he’s good at it but recently it just seems like he’s in competition with himself as to how many celebrities and famous people he can get into one video. Millie Bobby Brown in the latest thumbnail too like ok we get it you’re a “celebrity” too
Idk just feeling quite bored of him now
Hey Sisters :3
So like, in the beginning it was all dark and a weird af Earth and He was like: "sksksks this darkness ain't shit sister 🙄😤" So He made some light; Then He was like "Oop time to split it🤪" then he called the darkness "night", and the light "day" and it fitted into his aesthetic.
And He made sky in the wet Earth and was like: "Let's name it heaven because 🤠 why not?" Also He made the evening and morning or something idk smh.
He made land and the seas and was like "The dry is land and the wet is seas 😇💅". Oh and He made some plants and grass to make it green because 🌠Aesthetic🌠
So He made some light in the skies so to make seasons, days or something idk. He made it so to have a really hot rad light in the morning and like super aesthetic beautiful lights for night.
And the next day, God was like: " Hey lets put some bitches in the sea and make them happy uwu" and He did. And he stanned it so much that the next day He made some bitches in the land.
God was like "Something's missing 🤔" and He was like, "Oop- how about Man :0" and He did. And Man was destined to rule over Man. But Man was sad because they have no compatible partner. So God was like: "Sksksks k imma get your rib while you sleep so I can make a woman sksksk" And He did. And Man (Adam) and Woman (Eve) was happy.
And he was like: "Omg yasss so good xD"
God said to the peeps to not eat the forbidden fruit but Eve got tempted by Satan (Fucking bitch 🙄😤) and Eve was like "This edible taste like finna shit" so she went to Adam he was like: "nO-" then he took a bit. Then they turned into smartasses and hid because they were naked. And God was like "These bitches ain't shit :/" and kicked them out lmaoo
I don’t have much to add to this other than putting it out there as almost no one seems to have picked this up.
I feel this is just another way J* has wrapped his claws around R&D (not that they deserve sympathy) as we saw him do with James. When J “cancelled” James he also removed the Sister merch which I don’t doubt he will do when he finally drops Shane & co.
