In a video on Thursday, the beauty guru James Charles addressed allegations on social media that he had flirted or sexted with minors. Over the past month, boys who said they were under 18 have alleged in social-media posts that Charles, 21, solicited nude photos from them, sent them explicit photos, or sent sexually explicit messages. In a tweet on February 26, Charles claimed that one of the accusers had an "ulterior motive" to publicly accuse him of "grooming.
The boy told Insider that his social-media s said he was 16, and he denied lying about his age. In his YouTube video, Charles said that other accusers had lied to him about their ages and pretended to be adults. Charles' management team has ly not responded to Insider's requests for comment about allegations on Twitter and TikTok from minors who said they had interacted with the star. Charles didn't respond to a direct message on Twitter. In Thursday's video, titled "holding myself able," he said: "As I did more research on these topics and self-reflected, I realized that the receipts and the screenshots and the specific details of the interaction really don't matter, because I fed up, and I needed to take ability for my actions and most importantly apologize to the people that were affected by them.
The YouTuber said that he had used TikTok as a "dating app" and that he was committed to change. Charles said that while he had first "wanted to get on camera and film another 'No More Lies' video" — referring to the famous video in which he attempted to discredit accusations that he had pressured straight men into sexual encounters — he decided to "take ability. Charles said that he now understands the inevitable power dynamic when he speaks with fans.
Even if that celebrity isn't intentionally weaponizing their fame, money, or power.
And that's the concept that I just wasn't getting, but I now do. That admission was similar to a recent apology video from David Dobrikthe YouTube vlogger who's been widely criticized since Insider's Kat Tenbarge reported on a sexual-assault allegation against a former member of Dobrik's "Vlog Squad.
Charles closed his video by saying that he would take a break from social media to "reflect and further educate myself on these topics.
