YouTuber and beauty guru James Charles faced intense backlash in summer 2019, after mentor Tati Westbrook made damning accusations against him — but she wasn’t the only one involved in the scandal.

Fellow makeup mogul Jeffree Star likewise weighed in on the drama, which spawned after Westbrook accused Charles of using his fame to manipulate the sexuality of straight men he took interest in.

Alleging that his ex-boyfriend Nathan had banned Charles from their home, Star labeled the young YouTuber “a danger to society,” claiming that “everything Tati said is 100% true.”

Jeffree Star notably chimed in on the James Charles drama via Twitter in 2019, calling the young YouTuber a “danger to society” – a post he later deleted.

However, a recent tweet from Star may have hinted that the two content creators are on good terms after the fallout, posted nearly a year after Tati’s infamous video “No More Lies” went viral across social media.

Star commented on Charles’ March 20 makeup collaboration with TikTok star Charli D’Amelio, which reached the top of YouTube’s trending page shortly after going live.

“Umm, you look SO gorgeous!!!” Star said of D’Amelio’s colorful eyeshadow look, which Charles created, himself. “James killed it, per usual.”

While the comment could merely be a small pleasantry, fans are speculating that his Tweet hints at a rekindled relationship with the young beauty guru after he put Tati’s rumors to rest in his now-viral “No More Lies” video.

“Wait, y’all are friends again?” one confused fan wrote in response to the unexpected interaction. “Like, did I miss something?”

“Are you hacked?” another asked.

“We love positivity, but I really had to go outside and check if pigs were flying,” yet another commented.

Even Drama Alert’s KEEMSTAR chimed in on the matter with an enthusiastic, “AWWW.”

Although there’s no telling just yet if these two YouTubers have officially made up, Star’s post has certainly kindled the fires of fan rumors in wake of a hugely tumultuous time for Charles.

Star notably backed down from his stance on the 2019 issue after claiming he had “receipts” that would expose James for “mass manipulation,” later arguing that he was “not going to fuel this fire bigger so everyone can get more entertainment.”

Although Star decided to step away from the drama, things have been relatively quiet between the two beauty tubers — until now.

While it’s certain that they’ve made up, fans will definitely be keeping a close eye as YouTubers as events continue to unfold.

TikTok star Sienna Mae faced backlash from fans after she posted a TikTok of herself going on a spontaneous trip to Hawaii.

TikToker Sienna Mae found herself at the receiving end of criticism recently after she posted a TikTok implying that she had gone to Hawaii to surprise her boyfriend, fellow TikTok star Jack Wright.

In a video posted on her TikTok, she can be seen receiving a text from her boo, who was already in Hawaii, saying how he “wished [she] was here” before throwing clothes in a suitcase, driving to the airport and surprising Wright on a Hawaiian beach.

Due to the current health crisis, fans didn’t react well to Mae’s trip. Several TikTok users reminded Mae in the comments that “we are in a p*ndemic”, with one TikTok user quipping that they “can’t even go to the store” due to the current restrictions.

In response to the backlash, Mae commented on her original TikTok claiming that she flew to Hawaii for work and had tested negative prior to her arrival.

Mae reassured fans that she had tested negative and was taking all the necessary precautions during her trip.

However, for fans on Twitter, this wasn’t good enough. One user said: “She’s privileged enough to have a job that she can comfortably work from home with and make thousands of dollars a DAY. Why exactly does she have to go to Hawaii?”

Meanwhile, another Twitter user cast doubt over Mae’s claims, joking: “Yeah right! I’d like to know what job lets you run off to Hawaii! How can I get hired there?”

Mae is yet to publicly comment further on this backlash.

Who is Sienna Mae?

Alongside her work as an influencer, Sienna Mae is also an outspoken advocate for body positivity.

Many would be intimidated by such a rapid rise to fame, but in an interview with The NetLine in September, Mae said: “I love it. I wouldn’t change it for the world. This is what I have been saying I’ve wanted to do ever since I came out of the womb. I’m really happy and I really am thankful for the support. I am ecstatic about my TikTok fame.”

Mae has been dating Jack Wright since October, with the two confirming their relationship with a kiss at Saddle Ranch on 12 October. She met Wright at the high school they both attend.
