James Charles is an American make-up artist who gained massive popularity through his YouTube and Instagram makeup tutorials. He is a former male CoverGirl model and has made a fortune from his work with various beauty brands including Halo Beauty. His videos have millions of views and he is one of the most popular YouTubers and TikTok stars. He is a high-profile figure in the beauty industry and his net worth is estimated at $2 million. He has a wide following and has even been featured on the front cover of Vanity Fair magazine.
The 19-year-old YouTuber has been surrounded by controversy for allegedly sending sexually explicit messages to two different people who were under the age of 18. He apologized for his behavior in a video, but claimed that he was just curious and that he knew nothing about their sexuality or whether they were underage.
He has since lost millions of followers on his social media channels and has been subjected to a barrage of hate from angry fans. He has also been accused of using his position as a celebrity to promote a rival product, but he denies the allegation and says that he signed the deal in a bid to gain better passes, access, and security for Coachella.
However, he has been one of the most vocal advocates for the LGBTQ community and has worked to promote inclusion and acceptance. Attacks on his sexuality are not only degrading but also very harmful and it is important that everyone respects each other’s different sexual orientations and identities.
