YouTube star and makeup mogul James Charles has addressed rumors of receiving cosmetic surgery, after joking about getting a “a**-reduction” procedure before his actual medical appointment on May 27.

Charles is known for cutting it up on social media, having poked fun at himself for his Coachella outfits, makeup looks and more — but this time, one of his jokes may have been a little too convincing.

The YouTuber revealed in a Tweet on May 27 that he was going in for one of two surgeries, leaving fans confused and curious as to the procedure, since he didn’t exactly elaborate on the subject.

However, he did have fun mocking the rampant speculation in his replies, joking that he was going under the knife for a cosmetic procedure related to his derriere.

“By the way, my surgery is an a** reduction ‘cause it’s too fat,” he joked.

While many fans found the Tweet humorous, it seems that some truly believed his meme, with the beauty star returning to Twitter the very next day to clear the air regarding rumors of his new toosh.

“It has come to my attention that people actually believed that my surgery yesterday was an a** reduction,” he Tweeted. “Baby… I would never get rid of this thicker than a snicker juicy caboose!”

Although he’s kept the details of his surgeries under wraps, the YouTuber has hinted that he needs to get his tonsils removed, as told in a Tweet on May 14 after seeing his doctor for a supposed ear infection.

This wouldn’t be the first time fans have suspected the star of undergoing dramatic surgeries, either, with Charles addressing claims of having received gender reassignment surgery in a video in February.

The social media star has likewise thoroughly clarified that he is not transgender in the past, and identifies as male, debunking speculation by popular internet memes — and while he has yet to spill the beans regarding his latest procedures, fans are sending their love and support regardless.

The Joe Rogan Experience podcast enjoyed a relatively brief appearance by Dave Chappelle on an episode with Donnell Rawlings. And, to the joy of Rogan and Chappelle’s fans, the two set a tentative date for a full show together.

Rogan’s audience is gigantic and, as such, the names on his guest list frequently are as well. But, despite murmings of interest, Chappelle has long eluded one of the podcaster’s extensive interviews. That may soon change, as the iconic comedian confirmed that this new JRE setup in Austin suits his fancies and merits a full appearance.

A little over two hours into Rogan’s episode, No. 1,567, with Rawlings, headsets plopped off, seats got shifted, and both host and guest stood up to make way for a surprise appearance by Chappelle. Rawlings was glad to reunite with his friend from the Chappelle Show and Rogan seemed excited to finally get the comedian on the mic.

All it took was a new bunker studio in Austin, a lit joint, and a cup of coffee before the three were back to talking topics and, without much prying, Chappelle offered to come back on the show for a full episode. The tentative date for that episode? Soon after the presidential inauguration.

For mobile users, the segment begins at 2:30:20.

While spending about an hour chatting would sound like a full podcast to most people, that’s far from what Rogan’s fans have come to expect from his show. So, while Chappelle’s stint on the episode was substantial, he was acutely aware that a more thorough appearance was deserved.

After dapping up Rogan and Rawlings, Chappelle took his seat, got situated with some grass and caffeine, and eventually began discussing how much he enjoys Austin, Texas, along with the new studio.

From the ring to the studio, Rogan’s repertoire of interesting interviewees is boundless.

“I like this setup a lot, man. It feels homey. You actually just tricked me into doing a podcast. I’m going to come and do it for real, for real. As a matter of fact, I should come after the inauguration.” 

Rogan, who has mentioned wanting Chappelle on the show numerous times, including in December 2019, was fully on board with the scheduling opportunity: “Let’s do it. That sounds great.”
