James Charles is one of YouTube’s top beauty gurus, boasting over 16 million subscribers and a makeup product empire – but his video-making days were suddenly cut short on November 5 in a confusing accident.

While James Charles’ YouTube channel has seen its ups and downs in recent months (paging Tati Westbrook), it was deleted altogether in the middle of the day on November 5.

Fans flipped out across the net, sharing screenshots of an error message that read, “This video is no longer available because the YouTube account associated with this video has been terminated.”

He wasn’t the only YouTuber affected by the deletion, either: members of FaZe Clan also saw their channels suspended for seemingly no reason, with names like FaZe Rug and FaZe Kay posting their concerns to social media.

“What the hell?” Rug Tweeted. “My YouTube channel got terminated. WTF.”

“MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL GOT DELETED,” FaZe Kay exclaimed in all caps.

However, Charles had a humorously measured response to the drama in comparison, using his classic catchphrase to make a good-natured joke.

“My YouTube channel really said ‘bye sister,’” Charles wrote of the issue.

Not all hope is lost for these YouTubers, though: according to esports analyst Rod “@Slasher” Breslau, these sudden deletions were merely a “bug” on YouTube’s end, and the site will reportedly restore the affected accounts.

Charles’ response to the drama follows a major drop in subscribers earlier this year, when drama with fellow YouTuber Tati Westbrook saw the internet turn on him for the worse.

Losing over three million subscribers due to the debacle, it seemed like Charles’ career had taken a major hit – but the YouTube star quickly bounced back after sharing his version of events, and even managed to surpass his 16 million subscriber milestone shortly thereafter.

Charles’ Twitter account was also hacked in late August, with a group of hackers threatening to leak the celeb’s nudes – but his now-infamous response to the threats (including his more recent reaction to the YouTube debacle) shows that he isn’t afraid of what life throws his way.


How to get your 2020 Twitch Recap: A simple guide

Twitch has been rolling out 2020 recaps for both viewers and streamers, letting you see who you watched the most, and if you streamed, how many total viewers you racked up. So, here’s how you can get ahold of yours. 

Over the last few years, services like Spotify and Apple Music have started to give users a recap of their year – showing off who they listened to, how many hours they spent on the app, and also adding a few recommendations for the following year.

Users of other platforms have called for similar things, so they can see just how much time they’ve spent watching videos, listening to music, and even playing games.

Twitch is one of those platforms that has followed suit, giving both viewers and streamers a recap of their 2020 on the platform – including who they watched the most, how many messages they sent in chats, and what their favorite emote to spam was.

To get your hands on your own, account-specific recap – whether you streamed or just watched along with Twitch chat – you don’t have to jump through many hurdles.

Just make sure that the email address you use on your Twitch account is active and can receive emails. If that’s all sorted, then, you’ll get an email from Twitch delivering your stats. 

If you think you’ve already got an email and might have missed it, then simply go into your email inbox and search either your Twitch username or 2020 Twitch recap. It should be there. Also, make sure to check your spam inbox, it might have gotten lost along the way and ended up in there.

That’s all there is to it, really. You don’t have to go to any new website and opt into anything special, just make sure that the email account linked to your Twitch is able to receive emails.

Of course, as nice as it is to see which streamers you’ve wasted far too much time watching, some content creators aren’t happy. Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel pointed out that the stats are skewed, and his case ruined altogether, for some streamers because of bots.
