YouTube star and makeup mogul James Charles uploaded a video reflecting on the events of his tumultuous 2019 — and it looks like the beauty guru has successfully put his past drama behind him.

In 2019, James Charles saw both unprecedented growth (opening a Morphe store in Manchester, UK and causing a gridlock for traffic) and drama, after mentor Tati Westbrook attempted to “expose” him for allegedly manipulating the sexuality of straight men using his fame.

After losing hundreds of thousands of subscribers due to her now-deleted “Bye Sister” video, Charles managed to climb back on top after releasing his own “No More Lies” statement which explained the situation in full and lead many fans to take his side in the fallout.

Now, 2020 has officially arrived, ringing in both a new decade and a new period of peace for the young beauty guru, who claimed that he was able to stay afloat during some of his darkest times thanks to his new pup, Finnigan.

“I tried my best to put on a smile for the camera, because I would be completely lying if I said that I was happy during that month [September], because I was not at all,” Charles tearfully admitted. “I was still really trying hard to just get everything back together, working with my mental health.”

However, Charles is now confident that he’s back to his old self, revealing that the holidays have been some of his happiest days since recovering from his viral feud with Tati.

“The past few weeks have been some of the happiest I’ve had in so long,” Charles said, breaking into tears. “It just feels really, really, really f**king good to be able to sit on camera and say that with confidence and to not be lying and smiling just to keep the show going.”

What was once a potentially career-ending debacle for the makeup sensation has now become a testament to his mental strength, with the YouTuber hoping for even greater heights as 2020 begins.

Call of Duty

xQc stunned by toxic Call of Duty players in Black Ops Cold War

Twitch Star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel is no stranger to trash talk, but what he heard while playing Call of Duty: Cold War was enough to throw even him for a loop.

Call of Duty: Cold War is one of the hottest games on Twitch right now, and xQc certainly seems to have gotten a taste of the series’ legendary chatroom toxicity.

We’re not saying that this is a symptom of the CoD community overall, but the series has built up a reputation for being host to some hilariously venomous lobbies. xQc found this out firsthand while sitting in a lobby, and after getting knocked out.

The face when the CoD lobby gets a little too lit.

Ask anyone who’s played Call of Duty for long enough, and there’s a good chance is they’ll have a hilarious story about a toxic lobby or three that they’ve been a part of over the years. Now, xQc can officially add that to his list of accomplishments as well.

During a late-night/early morning stream on November 17, Felix ran into a rowdy lobby he tried to calm down in vain, before being called out himself.

“Guys, guys, guys, it’s 3 AM on a f***ing Monday, you guys are playing Call of Duty talking shit,” the former Overwatch pro begged, to no avail, and got told to shut his mouth, just not quite with that exact term.

After this, you’d probably figure things couldn’t get more radioactive, right? Well, you would be wrong, because Felix also ran into some incredibly toxic personalities while he was playing.

After getting knocked out, xQc asked, “It was you right?” before being told in graphic detail what his assailant wanted to do to him. We won’t type the quote out here, but the clip below should give you the gist.

The Canadian does come from the wild west that can be Overwatch games, but nothing really compares to being cursed out by an absolute random in CoD.

Whether Felix will return to Black Ops remains to be seen, especially since he seems to have had the full experience during this stream alone.
