Well, well, well. Here we are again, fans of YouTube drama. In his 40-minute video on Saturday, James Charles said that would be the last he would speak of his fallout with Tati Westbrook, and maybe it is. But before this whole thing ends, Westbrook had one more thing to tweet about the situation.
In her tweet on Sunday, she came out strong against Charles’s claims, saying, “I stand by my videos – do not twist my words into what they are not, hear the message.”
In his video Saturday, Charles detailed how this drama has affected him and caused him to experience “the darkest time [he’s] ever had to go through in [his] life.” He added that the claims Westbrook made, particularly in her 43-minute video “Bye, Sister,” were part of a much bigger story.
This whole situation is a lot bigger than just vitamins,” he said. He stood by his claims that Sugar Bear Hair agreed to help him and his friends when they felt uncomfortable around fans at Coachella. He said his relationship with the brand was a last-minute one and it was not pre-planned.
“We’ve had plenty of in-person conversations about other influencers doing the same deal and about him not liking Sugar Bear Hair and him dragging other people and being like Tati, I’m on your side, you’ve got me,” she said. “I will support you. You’ve got my loyalty.”
Westbrook has expressed her opinions across social media and gained nearly 4 million followers on her channel. Meanwhile, Charles has lost nearly as many followers.
