Popular YouTuber and makeup guru James Charles is hitting back at angry fans, once again – this time, for allegedly photoshopping his Instagram pictures.

Charles went under fire on March 19, after fans came out en masse on Twitter to criticize the YouTuber for photoshopping one of his makeup looks, which was posted to Instagram on March 7.

Many fans noted that he had appeared to copy and flip one eye to the other side of his face, resulting in a seemingly perfect mirror image – noted by the colorful stars painted on his eyelids.

“I had to unfollow,” one former fan and fellow makeup artist wrote. “I’m out here trying my HARDEST to have a name in this industry… and James out here mirrored his one eye to another.”

“To be fair, if any of us smaller influencers did that, we would get so much backlash,”said another. “If we smooth our pics too much we get hate, but why is it okay for him to photoshop a whole eye?”

James Charles had a surprising response to the allegations, openly admitting to photoshopping the image and claiming that he does so with all his photos.

“Lmao I photoshop all of my photos,” Charles replied. “It didn’t photograph the way I wanted it to, so I flipped one eye to the other. Still looked amazing in person.”

This isn’t the first time Charles has received criticism for his practices, either; the YouTuber also came under fire for placing seven ads within a 24-minute-long video, to which he responded by taking responsibility for helping mass media recognize the importance of online influencers.

Jake Paul has already set his sights on new boxing opponents such as Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis and even his brother Logan Paul, after his impressive second round K.O. victory over former NBA star Nate Robinson.

Following the highly anticipated Tyson vs Jones Jr boxing card on November 28, YouTube star Jake Paul came away from the night as one of the biggest winners after his win over Nate Robinson went viral.

The Calabasas-based content creator put on a strong performance in the co-main event with a knockout in the second round, moving to a 2-0 record as a professional boxer, and immediately began issuing challenges for his next bout.

Conor McGregor was one of the fighters Jake Paul challenged to a boxing fight.

During the post-fight interview, Jake Paul revealed that he would soon be looking to take a step up in competition after his time off, even challenging some of the biggest MMA stars in the world.

He explained that he would be interested in taking on Conor McGregor, a two-division UFC champion, as well as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu star and undefeated Bellator fighter, Dillon Danis, who he has had an ongoing feud with.

“I’m taking this seriously,” Paul explained, predicting KO victories over both athletes, “There’s a long list of opponents that I want. Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis, I’m going to knock them both out.”

While many viewers claimed it could be too soon for Jake to take on life-long fighters, he also shared a list of other content creators he’d like to meet in the ring, including his brother Logan Paul and YouTube rival KSI.

“There’s my brother, there’s KSI on the line, Austin McBroom.” he admitted, “I want to be in this sport a long time. I’m in love with it, so why not.”

KSI was quick to respond to the challenge, claiming that he was not impressed with Jake’s performance on the night, even though he had earned multiple knockdowns during the bout.

Whether he will get to fight any of these stars in the coming months remains unclear, but he has certainly generated a lot of hype around his name following his impressive win.
