    Crazy Eyes vs Coverboi: Guess who went to the pyre?

    The canceling of James Charles: Beauty YouTuber loses 3 million subscribers in a weekend.

    YouTube beauty gurus Tati Westbrook and James Charles are tangled in a scandal over gummy vitamins that is leaving the community shook.

    Since last Friday, Charles has lost close to 3 million YouTube subscribers, according to the subscriber tracking site Social Blade, and the entire beauty community seems to have turned against him.

    Through beauty tutorials, vlogs, makeup products and branding, Charles has built a small empire, amassing millions of dollars and legions of fans.

    But Friday, a stalwart of the YouTube beauty community and one of Charles’ mentors, Tati Westbrook, turned against him, posting a 43-minute-long video entitled “BYE SISTER...”

    In her video, Westbrook outlined all the reasons she can no longer be associated with Charles and explained why she is cutting him out of her life. Westbrook explained she had been having problems with Charles’ behavior for a while, finding him inconsiderate and often offensive. But things came to a boil in April.

    During Coachella, Charles posted a sponsored post for Sugar Bear Hair supplements to his Instagram story. The gummy vitamin brand often sponsors influencers and celebrities, but it's also a rival to Westbrook’s vitamin brand, Halo Beauty. Fans suspected this sponsorship would upset Westbrook, whom Charles has previously credited with driving his passion for makeup. Turns out: they were right.

    In her Friday video, Westbrook told viewers she’d had enough and she felt used. As she promoted Charles’ Morphe discount codes and raved about his makeup, she felt like he stabbed her in the back, and she also claimed he was spreading lies about her. She added that she thinks Charles, who is gay, inappropriately tries to court straight men.

    Since Friday, the makeup artist’s subscriber numbers have plummeted from around 16.5 million to now less than 13.8 million. Social media users posted videos of them burning their James Charles palettes, and other YouTube stars like Jeffree Star, who was known to be close to Charles, posted their support for Westbrook.

    In a now deleted tweet that got over 100,000 retweets while it was up, Star, who has 14 million subscribers on YouTube, said he "banned James Charles from ever coming to our home" before the video was released, and the internet was flooded with memes mocking Charles.

    Westbrook’s video, meanwhile, has racked up more than 35 million views and she has gained millions of subscribers. Before she posted the video, she had under 6 million subscribers. Now, she has more than 9 million.

    All the while, Charles’ merchandise store “Sisters Apparel” appears to be down, and the status of his upcoming tour is unknown. As beauty YouTubers sided with Westbrook, and fans have turned their back on their once hero, his future in the community is unclear.
    Until I saw this guy mentioned in a Barbara4u2c video, I had no idea he existed, or about any of this meaningless horseshit. I intentionally avoid Twitter for this reason. But after reading the article, I am... well... very *not stunned* by how this turned out. A woman performs a blatantly profitable take-down of a protege who has eclipsed her, gains a shit-ton of followers, the entire internet turns against him, and that's all okay, cause it's a man.

    Doesn't matter how amazingly neutered this guy makes himself, how well he plays along, how feminized he becomes, or for what reason... he's still a man, and therefore kindling. Just pisses me off, dudes... more evidence that nothing will ever be enough.

    And it's nothing but wide open prairie...

    There's something very fun about MGTOW. In an odd sense, like charting a new territory of the mind, or rediscovering a long lost civilization. Occult knowledge, secret societies, cannibal natives (THOTS), it's all very exciting... lololol.

    When you play for the wrong team the only position you are allowed to have is the scapegoat.
