YouTube stars Emma Chamberlain and James Charles have finally collaborated again, nearly a year after the unofficial “Sister Squad” went quiet — and fans are hopeful this means the group will make its long-awaited comeback.

It seems like every social media outlet has its own content collaborative: just take a look at the Hype House or Team 10, for example, which brought together some of YouTube and TikTok’s biggest stars under a single roof.

While not exactly like those two organizations, the “Sister Squad” had its own unique take on teaming up top-tier influencers, with best friends and YouTubers James Charles, Emma Chamberlain and the Dolan Twins becoming an unofficial YouTube group among themselves.

Dubbed the “Sister Squad” by fans, taking after James Charles’ own nickname for his viewers, the four content creators often appeared in each other’s videos and claimed to be thick as thieves — until things suddenly went quiet among the group around early 2019.

The Sister Squad was once one of YouTube’s biggest powerhouses – but the group went dark nearly a year ago, leaving fans wondering what happened between the friends.

This apparent breakup occurred a few months after James Charles’ viral scandal in May, after former mentor Tati Westbrook accused him of a slew of wrongdoings (including promoting a rival vitamin brand).

Nearly two years later, the “Sister Squad” seems to be shaping up again, as Emma and James have appeared in a collaborative video together, where Emma picked out James’ clothes for an entire week.

The two could barely keep it together as the video began, with Chamberlain humorously claiming that she was “getting emotional” as she blurted out James’ signature “Hi, sisters!” opener.

“I didn’t think I would ever be in this room again,” she admitted. “I feel really good. I missed you.”

“It’s been a really long time,” Charles continued after giving his friend a fierce hug. “Emma and I recently reconnected after I think like two years. Absolutely insane. …a lot can happen over the course of two years. Its been really amazing just catching back up and really being in each other’s lives again.”

Charles went on to claim that he and Chamberlain had reconnected “in private” and are now able to catch up with each other in the public eye, further adding fuel to the fire that something occurred behind the scenes to split the squad apart.

However, neither Emma nor James spilled the beans on what actually caused the Sister Squad to split up — but who cares when you’ve got two of YouTube’s biggest superstars back in each other’s good graces?

Content creator and influencer Trisha Paytas has called out YouTuber Shane Dawson and his fiance Ryland Adams for not “taking accountability” for their actions following her revelations about Jeffree Star and HairbyJay last week. 

In a series of TikToks, Paytas insists that it is unfair that the two are able to just go about their lives without taking accountability for their actions.

She said: “They never  have to take accountability for anything. They don’t learn, they don’t get it. They’ll have an apology, throw therapy in there, but they don’t change. And it’s not okay.”

“The amount of trauma and trust issues I have from this are far greater than anything any ex-boyfriend or daddy issues could give me,” she continued. “This is someone I’ve never lied to and never said one bad word about for twelve years.”

Paytas added: “I find out every day, more and more nasty s**t he said about me.”

“It just goes to show what horrible human beings they are. They think that if they don’t address stuff, it just goes away,” she said.  “And that is the truth, because a lot of people won’t have to take accountability for their actions and for being a s**tty person because the internet forgets stuff and the drama moves on.”

Paytas also dubbed Dawson’s fiance Adams a “weasel,” saying that he “couldn’t wait to talk about it” because “he was so happy to have a little bit of spotlight on him.”

She also called out Shane in a TikTok pointedly titled: “Signs you’re in a toxic friendship (but don’t wait twelve years to end it).”

Some of the “signs” she mentioned include: “says they won’t support you publicly because it gives them anxiety (but does it for other people),” “stops showing up in-person for any important events,” “they only call you when their other friendships aren’t working out,” “they trigger you on purpose to go off on people on their behalf,” “tries to convince you to ‘move on’ from trauma that makes them look bad” and “tells you they ‘don’t want to believe what you’re saying’ when you’re opening up to them.”

Shane and Ryland are yet to comment publicly on the situation.
