Popular beauty YouTubers James Charles and Tati Westbrook are in the middle of a fierce feud, which saw the involvement of makeup mogul Jeffree Star – who claims to have serious “receipts” in store to expose Charles for his “manipulation.”

Star posted a Tweet on May 18 in response to Charles’ 40-minute-long “No More Lies” video, which addressed claims made by Tati that he had used his fame to “manipulate” straight men’s sexuality and promoted a product from her direct competitor without fair warning.

However, Charles’ video appeared to debunk nearly all of Tati’s claims – but Star isn’t buying his explanations.

Star’s Tweet claimed that he had “really sad, disgusting things” to show fans in response to Charles’ video, claiming that the young YouTuber had just “mass manipulated” all of his fans.

“Everyone keeps asking me for my RECEIPTS,” Star wrote. “I have so much to say and some really sad, disgusting things to show you guys. James Charles tried to mass manipulate you all today. When I show you the proof and WHY I tweeted that tweet about him, you will all finally understand.”

Star likewise published a Tweet shortly after Charles’ video went live, assuring fans that “there are always two sides to every story.”

Star played a big role in the later portion of Charles’ video, as well, with Charles showing a slew of text messages from Star accusing him of “trapping” a boy in his hotel room and “using sentences a rapist would use” toward Zach, the younger brother of Star’s longtime boyfriend.

In fact, Charles claimed that Jeffree had encouraged him to pursue Zach, as evidenced by his statement in a collaborative video the two published prior to the drama – despite Zach identifying as “mostly straight.”

James’ own little brother was also dragged into the mix, after Star quote replied to his Tweet, calling James a “predator” and telling him to “shut the fuck up.”

Star likewise accused Charles of trying to “molest and touch” YouTuber Grayson Dolan in his sleep – a claim that Charles vehemently denied, claiming that “nothing ever happened between us.”

Charles has since seen a major rise in subscribers following the release of his video, but with Jeffree’s “receipts” still pending, the story has yet to fully unfold.

Popular content creator Hasan ‘HasanAbi’ Piker hilariously trolled fellow Twitch star Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek’s new look – comparing it to one of Sacha Baron Cohen’s styles in the new Borat sequel.

Big-name Twitch streamers are always sparking fun feuds between each other for fans to get invested in, as has been seen with the likes of Dr Disrespect, shroud, and more in the past.

Since shroud made his return to Twitch, it has not taken long for some of his fellow streamers to troll him after he debuted a new goatee on stream, instead of his regular clean-shaven look.

HasanAbi was the latest to poke fun at shroud’s choice of facial hair during his October 23 broadcast, comparing it to the new Borat movie.

Borat switches up his usual style for some scenes in the second movie.

Hasan, who’s risen to popularity on Twitch as both a gamer and political commentator was hosting a Twitch watch party for ‘Borat Subsequent Moviefilm’ on Amazon Prime. When a particular scene came up, he was quick to point out similarities between shroud and the main character.

While Borat is usually seen with a long mustache, there is a scene in the movie that sees him rocking a goatee and a pair of glasses, causing Hasan to pull up an image of shroud alongside.

“I have to show- oh my god guys, look at this,” he said, before trolling with a side-by-side image of Borat next to shroud.

Hasan could not help bursting into laughter – the match between the former CSGO pro and Cohen’s latest character is uncanny.

Dr Disrespect previously laid into shroud for his new facial hair, and the jokes are not letting up.

Shroud hasn’t clapped back yet, instead just letting his fellow streamers have their fun – while he rides high on his successful move back to Twitch, following the collapse of Mixer.
