Makeup mogul James Charles is getting quite close with TikTok stars, particularly with Charli D’Amelio — but according to Charles, the brutal nature of TikTok comments is starting to get to its most-followed content creator.

It’s no secret that the internet can be a ruthless place. In fact, James Charles found himself at the center of one of YouTube’s biggest scandals in May of last year, after being accused by former mentor Tati Westbrook of multiple alleged misdeeds.

While Charles has since recovered from the drama, it seems that TikTok has become the net’s resident hive for bullying, with even the likes of rapper Taio Cruz quitting the platform after being harassed by mean users.

However, it looks like things are even worse for some of the app’s top content creators, with names like Addison Rae getting near-constant hate and bodyshaming comments — and even TikTok Queen Charli D’Amelio isn’t exempt from the bullying.

In an interview with YouTubers Zane and Heath, James Charles revealed that Charli often calls him when she receives hateful comments and backlash on TikTok, usually accompanied by tears and high emotions.

“Charli and I talk almost every single day,” Charles revealed during the interview. “I’ve been really trying hard to be there for her, help her wherever I can, give her advice, just really be there.”

“There’s been so many times where she’ll call me so upset, or crying over comments or things that have happened, like, ‘What do I do?’” he continued. “And I’ll be like, ‘Charli, suck it up.’”

Considering the nature of TikTok’s comments section in general, it comes as little surprise that the app’s number one creator often has this reaction to receiving hate online.

It’s not just Charli who’s seeing negativity, though; according to research, cyber bullying has risen 70% since the onset of the current global health crisis, with many teens and adults stuck at home and glued to their smartphone screens.

While it’s easy to be negative and hateful from behind an online persona, it’s always good to remember that social media stars are people, too, and that spreading love and kindness is far more beneficial than tearing someone down.

Nick ‘LS’ De Cesare has revealed that Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel reached out to him during the T1 backlash offering his support and advice.

T1’s accidental leak that revealed LS was set to be the organization’s new League of Legends coach resulted in a wave of backlash against both parties.

Fans of the organization opted to send unjustifiable racial and homophobic abuse towards LS, as well as doxxing his grandmother and sending packages to her address. T1, from an outside perspective, did not handle the situation appropriately and seemingly offered little support to LS during this period.

This resulted in LS disabling his Twitter and going completely dark for a short period of time. This was no doubt due to the amount of hate and criticism he was receiving from T1 fans. One person who reached to support him was huge Twitch personality xQc.

LS revealed on stream that the Twitch personality reached out to him in support. “Before I disabled my Twitter and went dark on everything, xQc was one of the very few people who reached out to me,” he said.

It was obvious LS was surprised he had reached out to him due to the streamer’s popularity: “Despite the fact that I’m like an insect compared to him, in terms of like brand and size and everything, it’s very nice.”

LS repeated multiple times that xQc is a “real one”, showing his appreciation for his support and care.

It’s clear that xQc reaching out to LS really meant a lot to him and helped him get through the difficult patch. Sometimes, just reaching out to somebody going through a hard time can make a world of difference.

Now, it’s just great to see LS back on track with the League of Legends content and streaming again.
