Superstar YouTuber Jeffree Star has had some strong words to say about fellow beauty product mogul James Charles amid is continuing drama involving Tati Westbrook.
Over the past few days, James Charles’ explosive feud and drama with Tati has captured all of the entertainment headlines, leading him to lose nearly three million subscribers since early May 10.
As a result of this massive slide, Jeffree Star managed to overtake Charles as the biggest beauty-based channel on YouTube, and now leads him by well over one million subs.
While Star managed to not involve himself with the drama much early on, he finally stepped out and posted a very fiery tweet aimed at Charles, which has since been deleted.
“There is a reason that Nathan [Star’s Husband] banned James Charles from ever coming over to our home again,” he wrote. “There’s a reason why I haven’t seen him since Tati’s birthday in February. He is a danger to society. Everything Tati said is 100% true.”
In a separate deleted tweet, Star had a very harsh response to Charles’ 17-year-old brother, Ian, who had tried his best to defend his brother on social media: “Why does everyone act so tough on the internet?”
“Why is your brother a predator?” Star responded. “Why’d you really move back to New York City? Exactly. So shut the f**k up.”
Both parties would end up deleting their tweets, as their exchange drew a lot of negative attention from fans, especially when it came to Star’s tough reply.
James Charles-Tati Westbrook drama rolls on
The once-strong relationship between the two first began to fracture when Charles posted an Instagram story promoting a product made by a rival company of Tati’s.
This was followed by an emotional response from Tati, who posted a tearful Instagram story of her own, in which she admitted to feeling betrayed, used, and alone.
She followed that up by a 43-minute video called ‘Bye Sister,’ in which she slammed Charles’ behavior and personality and effectively cut her ties with him, after having been his close friend and mentor for over three years.
Since that video went live, Charles’ subscriber count has been at a steady free-fall, dropping more than 2.5 million subs and going from over 16 million to now around 13.5 million, despite the fact that he published a video apologizing to Tati.
It’s not clear when his channel will stop leaking subs, or when the drama will subside, but there is no doubting that this will leave a major mark on Charles’ career for as long as he continues to do YouTube.
