James Charles, Tati Westbrook & Jeffree Star Collectively Put An End To The Feud

Tati Westbrook, James Charles

Over the weekend, embattled YouTuber James Charles broke his silence following Tati Westbrook’s 40 minute take-down with a tell-all video of his own.

In the vid, the 19-year-old addressed the damning allegations made against him by both Tati and fellow beauty blogger Jeffree Star, in particular an incident with a waiter at Westbrook’s birthday party.

Charles said:

“I am a 19-year-old virgin. I have never and will never use my fame, money, or my power to manipulate or get any sexual actions from a guy. That is disgusting. That is not me. The fact that Tati brought this up blows my mind.”

He also called out singer Zara Larsson, who has been critical of him this past week, claiming that he slid into her boyfriend’s DMs.

He said:

“Why is it okay for Zara Larsson, a woman, with the public platform to tweet these photos of a shirtless man and say ‘Who are you? How old are you? Where do you live? Why are you so fine? How do you like your eggs cooked in the morning?’ But for me as a gay man to DM the same person in private with a compliment is predatory?”

He later posted a series of tweets explaining that the reason behind the video is “NOT to start a war, but to take responsibility for my actions.”

Westbrook also had her say via her Twitter, firing off the following tweets:

In the meantime, shade queen Jeffree Star, of course, had to put his two cents in.

The fellow beauty blogger warned fans not to “believe anything that was said today.”


However, today Star revoked his involvement in the drama via a video which he described as “one of the most important videos” he’ll ever upload.

You’ll never believe it, but Star actually backs down in the vid, saying that the recent scandal was “a huge wake-up call to reel me in,” confessing that he is completely done with the “tea, and the drama.”

It’s literally almost 14 minutes of Star explaining that he’s turned over a new leaf and no longer wants anything to do with the beef and I say good on him.

Check it out below:

Star’s video seemingly struck a cord with Westbrook who shared a long and passionate speech on social media, explaining that she “will not be making any further public comments.”

She hopes that the YouTuber community “is somehow strengthened from all of this madness” and she even apologises for “all of the hate this brought to our doorstep.”

And in a final (?) ceasefire, Charles acknowledged both of his colleagues’ vids with a tweet saying that he is “on board to move on” and “will not speak about this further”.

Call me a pessimist but something tells me this isn’t the last we’ll hear about this beef but you’ve gotta give ’em props for at least wanting to move on.
