James Charles Addresses Tati Westbrook, Shane Dawson & Jeffree Star Saga In New TikTok
Let's rewind: in May 2019, Tati released a 43-minute, now-deleted clip titled "Bye Sister", in which she’d accused James of a heap of terrible stuff, including coercing young men into sexual acts. “You don’t have any [respect] for the people who were in this industry before you and that’s the sad fact,” Tati had said. The initial fallout for James Charles was crazy; he lost three million YouTube subscribers in a matter of days and he later said his mental health deteriorated.
Over a year later, in another video called "Breaking My Silence…", Tati claimed Shane Dawson and Jeffree had coerced her into releasing the video, and manipulated her into going against her former friend. Shane “even offered to design the thumbnail and help title it,” Tati had alleged in the video.
While Shane has yet to address Tati’s accusations apart from this bizarre Instagram Live, Jeffree, however, did (kinda?) apologise, saying in a video titled "Doing What’s Right": “It’s disgusting, it’s awful and none of it should’ve happened. So, James, I am truly sorry for my actions and my behaviour.”
James, for this part, remained relatively quiet on these recent events (apart from some comments in this strange paparazzi video) – until now. Over the weekend, James uploaded a TikTok set to the La Roux’s tune “Bulletproof”, writing: “You think you can hurt my feelings? I love 3 million subscribers in one day and [was] cancelled over something I didn’t actually do.”

For those not into TikTok, the “You think you can hurt my feelings?” caption set to “Bulletproof” is a new trend, particularly popular among those in the public eye. Wonder if Shane'll jump on that bandwagon too...
