After trading blows with James Charles on Twitter, H3H3 Productions founder Ethan Klein has now Tweeted a private conversation he had with the beauty YouTuber, wherein he claims Charles “basically admits that his team ripped of us [sic]”.

Recently, James Charles unveiled his long-awaited ‘Sisters Apparel’ clothing line which, among other things, included pastel, color-blocked hoodies that look remarkably similar to those offered by Ethan’s wife, Hila Klein’s, Teddy Fresh line.

Whilst Ethan has clarified on Twitter that he doesn’t claim to have “invented color-blocking”, he does point out on Instagram that “it’s the exact colors in the exact spot on our most iconic item”, with him posting a tongue-in-cheek TikTok about how James Charles’ new hoodie “looks familiar”.

In the explosive exchange, Charles admits that “one of the color ways we’re doing IS an exact copy of the purple tan pink and teal hoodies you guys have”. He then goes on to suggest that whilst he didn’t copy anything, “they [his team] certainly may have”.

However, when Ethan explains in the exchange that this hoodie design is “the hallmark of our brand” and that he is “speechless” it has been “knocked off”, Charles appears to go on the defense.

He says that the Kleins don’t “own color block” and that the main hoodie in the collection – which the beauty guru argues is inspired by own Nike hoodie – has a “different source of inspiration, […] color body” and “color pocket”.

He also claims that their different fanbase and brand means that there is “no competition here”, and argues that he has “never shopped on their website” and so could not have possibly copied them.

Justifying his reasoning for going public with this exchange, Ethan explains that he wanted a “sense of justice before he sells a billion of these”, and that he wanted to provide evidence of Charles’ admission of “ripping [them] off” to all those who initially refuted his claims.

Suggesting that he is unbothered by the leaked conversation, James simply Tweeted out a “good morning” message to his followers, which Ethan then responded to with a screenshot of their conversation. This Tweet has since been deleted by Klein.

Whilst James tried to ignore the drama, Klein was quick to remind him.

When it comes to this latest drama, fans have had a range of responses. Whilst some have moved to defend Klein, encouraging him to “lawyer up”, other fans have taken this exchange to be proof that James “never changed” following his drama with Tati Westbrook, Shane Dawson and Jeffree Starr last year.

Meanwhile, supporters of Charles have accused Klein of having a “mid-life crisis”, whilst other users are claiming that he’s “throw[ing] a fit on Twitter for clout”.

It remains to be seen if this is the end of the drama between these two creators, but the ball is in Charles’ court and he hasn’t responded yet at the time of publication.

As always, we’ll continue to bring you the latest on this story as it develops.

Dixie D’Amelio has finally released the behind the scenes vlog of her nose surgery from back in September, with the uncomfortable after-effects leaving the much loved TikTok star emotional.

Charli and Dixie D’Amelio have taken the TikTok world by storm, very much as a family unit. The sisters, along with their parents, have spread their content wings past TikTok, and into YouTube, the podcast world, and have even dabbled in beauty.

The youngest sister Charli grossed fans out in August when she released a rather gruesome video of her own nose surgery to help fix her breathing, showing a very detailed look of the doctor scraping out pieces of cartilage and septum.

About a month following Dixie received the same procedure in order to fix breathing problems that had accumulated thanks to similar injuries that Charli received. Dixie even had to call out fans who claimed she was ‘copying’ Charli for getting surgery, despite the fact that the procedure was not cosmetic.

Dixie postponed her nose surgery because she wanted to continue playing sports.

After waiting for over a month, Dixie has now finally unveiled the behind the scenes vlog of the lead up to her surgery on her YouTube channel, and it’s safe to say it wasn’t a particularly fun experience.

She included videos of the consultations between her and her surgeon, with him demonstrating that that main point of the surgery was to correct a twist in the septum that was caused by sporting incidents that led to a whopping 14 concussions.

The immediate after-effects were clearly uncomfortable, Dixie saying “I cried right after surgery because I wanted to go home so bad. And I just wanna snort, I wanna breathe in so deep but there’s cotton on my nose. And my forehead’s itchy but it’s also numb.”

In a slightly delirious video taken in the mirror, Dixie said “I keep crying and I don’t know why,” but even after an uncomfortable looking cough, continues to sing “keep your head up, it’s bedtime.”

While the star seemed in relatively light spirits initially, all things considered, things quickly took a turn for the worst the next day, when she said that “I had such a rough night trying to sleep.”

“My nose doesn’t hurt at all, but I have an awful migraine, and I get really bad migraines, so that’s just where all my pain is right now.” The TikTok star also admitted that she “couldn’t stop crying last night over my thoughts.”

However, now that time has passed since the surgery, Dixie looks to be in better spirits than ever, much to her fans’ relief. In the description of her vlog, she also thanked her surgeon Dr. Raj Kanodia for “doing such an amazing job and making me feel so comfortable from beginning to end!”

Dixie D’Amelio is a TikTok influencer with over 42 million followers on the app. She and her younger sister Charli D’Amelio have garnered a combined follower count of a whopping 137 million followers.
