‘Can’t threaten me with it now’

After all that drama with Tati Westbrook, Jeffree Star, and seemingly the entire beauty community, things have been relatively quiet for James Charles as of late. That is, until yesterday when the beauty YouTuber’s Twitter account was hacked and a flood of (now deleted) racist tweets were posted.  

After regaining control of his account, Charles shared with his 4 million followers what is allegedly his only nude picture with the caption: “hi I got my account back just case I ever get hacked again, here’s the ONLY nude I’ve ever taken! can’t threaten me with it now get a life.” The tactic is one we’ve seen used by Bella Thorne and Liam Payne previously. 

Charles also clapped back at a follower who replied to the tweet with “literally nobody asked for this” with: “Yeah well I didn’t ask to have my security and privacy threatened either slutdelrey so this is me taking back ownership of the situation, move on with your day.”

He followed the nude picture with another tweet of the same image, this time with a picture of the burning Amazon rainforest photoshopped over him, with the caption: “We need to put out the fucking Amazon rainforest fires before we all fucking die.”
