Kinda terrifying, kinda hilarious.
You may have seen some vlogger drama circulating on your social media feeds over the last few days, because the internet is currently in a frenzy because of James Charles’ most recent video.
It all started when James went on a cinema trip to see ‘It’.
He wasn’t a massive fan of the movie and afterwards tweeted (and deleted) that it was “awful”… and then chaos descended.
‘It’ fans lost it. We’re not sure why.
why am I being attacked for saying I didn't like a movie lmfao y'all need to find something better to do with your lives— James Charles (@jamescharles) September 8, 2017
James later apologised for his comment and later clarified that whilst he thought the film was well made, it just wasn’t his film. He was expecting a horror film, and was disappointed to find that it’s more a dark comedy.
It was a FANTASTICALLY made movie. I went into it expecting to be more horror & was disappointed when I wasn't scared. Simple as that. https://t.co/hkGm5yR0jK— James Charles (@jamescharles) September 10, 2017
He then proceeded to do a Pennywise makeup tutorial.
OH, THE SCANDAL.
most ironic makeup tutorial in history coming next week lmao pic.twitter.com/QQvb6tb9CJ— James Charles (@jamescharles) October 7, 2017
No, but seriously, people lost it.
I really have half of the internet angry over a makeup tutorial this is too funny— James Charles (@jamescharles) October 7, 2017
Trolls came for James claiming that because he didn’t like the movie, then he shouldn’t do a make up tutorial on it.
James rightfully pointed out that it’s literally his job to create makeup tutorials. “You don’t have to like a movie to do a tutorial on a look from it & being that it’s the most popular movie right now, it would be dumb of me to not do a tutorial”, he wrote on YouTube.
me sleeping next week when my IT tutorial goes live & half of the views are from angry stans calling me a hypocrite bc I said I hated it pic.twitter.com/bpqfCBvZ7N— James Charles (@jamescharles) October 7, 2017
HOWEVER, then actors from ‘It’ started to jump on the bandwagon which has now caused even more drama.
Finn Wolfhard (also of Stranger Things fame) took a jab at the MUA for tweeting during the movie:
Why are you on your phone in the movie theater? Rule 1. https://t.co/Z2rm2phkbI— Finn Wolfhard (@FinnSkata) September 10, 2017
Then Wyatt Oleff, who plays Stanley in the film, also shaded James:
when you decide to exploit a movie that you hate for money & attention cause why not— Wyatt Ghouleff (@FelloWyatt) October 9, 2017
And then things got really nasty:
It's not that I'm trying to be mean or roast anyone here, I get it, it's just business. Not a big deal. Just how the internet works.— Wyatt Ghouleff (@FelloWyatt) October 9, 2017
I get that and it's totally fine. Just making a joke here on my end.— Wyatt Ghouleff (@FelloWyatt) October 9, 2017
It’s not funny though? I’ve already said a million times you guys killed it in the movie & have apologized, you knew this “joke” was going— James Charles (@jamescharles) October 9, 2017
to result in me getting dragged left and right once again. I have a ton of respect for all of you guys but this is uncalled for.— James Charles (@jamescharles) October 9, 2017
oop sorry bout that lol. I can't control people, but I'll try to make sure that they aren't jerks to you again. Very sorry.— Wyatt Ghouleff (@FelloWyatt) October 9, 2017
Guys, @jamescharles is just doing his job. His fans asked for the tutorial so he gave it. We're human, we make mistakes. Don't be a jerk.— Wyatt Ghouleff (@FelloWyatt) October 9, 2017
thank you sister— James Charles (@jamescharles) October 9, 2017
brother** but ok— Wyatt Ghouleff (@FelloWyatt) October 9, 2017
we’re all sisters down here— James Charles (@jamescharles) October 9, 2017
But Nicholas Hamilton who plays Henry Bowers wanted to have the final word:
mmm but stop tho— Nicholas Hamilton (@Nic_Hamilton) October 9, 2017
Oh yeah, and this totally happened too...
