The beauty YouTuber war is growing: Jeffree Star says James Charles is a ‘danger to society’ and has been banned from his home

The YouTube beauty community was shaken up on Friday when Tati Westbrook made a YouTube video ending her friendship with James Charles.

In the video, Westbrook accused Charles of being a “bad role model” and “manipulating someone’s sexuality” by making advances towards straight men. The friendship took a turn when Charles posted an advertisement for Sugar Bear Hair vitamins, which is a direct competitor to Westbrook’s supplement company, Halo Beauty.

Now fellow YouTuber and cosmetics mogul Jeffree Star has weighed-in on the situation, saying that his boyfriend Nathan had banned Charles from coming to their home and calling him “a danger to society.”

“There is a reason that Nathan banned James Charles from ever coming over to our home again,” Star wrote in the Tweet sent out on Sunday. “There’s a reason why I haven’t seen him since @GlamLifeGuru’s birthday in February. He is a danger to society. Everything Tati said is 100% true.”

“Never Forget You” singer Zara Larsson also chimed in, claiming that Charles “hit up” her boyfriend.

“I’m cackling cause he hit up my boyfriend in the dms several times knowing damn well he’s straight,” Larsson wrote in a tweet accompanied with Westbrook’s video. She later clarified that Charles only messaged him once and left comments under some of his photos.

The BBC reported that Charles lost over a million subscribers after Westbrook’s video appeared online. The website SocialBlade shows that Charles has lost 1.6 million subscribers in the last 30 days at the time of this post.

Charles eventually responded to Westbook’s claims in a video titled “tati,” where he said he was “disappointed” in himself and apologized to Westbrook and her husband. The video currently has 371,000 likes and 1.8 million dislikes at the time of this post.

Representatives for Star and Charles did not immediately respond to INSIDER’s request for comment.

You’re pretty enough, Mama

You’re pretty enough, Mama

I threw a pile of dirty clothes over my shoulder as I searched through my son’s closet for his left tennis shoe.

If you would just put your shoes in the right spot when you come inside.
If you would just use your dirty clothes basket.
If you would just listen.

We had thirty minutes to get to the pediatrician’s office, a twenty minute drive away. And I hadn’t even gotten myself ready.

I’ll get up earlier than usual.
Then someone gets up with me and I’m sitting on the toilet with a toddler in my lap.
I don’t need to take a shower the night before, I’ll do it in the morning.
Day three of dry shampoo.
I’ll pack our bags and lay out their clothes.
But I forget to lay out the shoes.

46cc51cff58f313040956a7a6eb862c623ccf3dd.jpg

So here I am on my knees in my six-year-old’s closet ten minutes before we have to leave while my toddler is sitting on top of the kitchen table spilling the milk from his brother’s cereal while the dogs lick the sticky floor.

Why didn’t he put his cereal bowl up?

How could I forget to put the dogs out?

Some days, I embrace the chaos. I laugh it off. It’s fine.

This was not one of those days.

I locate the shoe with five minutes to spare and turn my attention to the hallway mirror, where I see that my unbrushed hair sits on top of my head in a bun and my glasses cover puffy, tired eyes on a bare face.

I’m hit with the reality that I’ll walk into the doctor’s office looking like an ogre inevitably sitting by miss-presentable-and-put-together with the nuclear family kids dressed like Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

I slump through the hallway and walk into my bedroom, followed by four feet and a mantra of can-I-take-my-toys/mama-mama-mama.

I quickly step inside my bedroom and shut/lock the door. I stop the feet but not the whines.

I can feel the tears welling from my own eyes but I don’t have time for that today.

And once I’m alone, I sink into a familiar downward spiral.

I’m not organized.

I’m bad at time management.I’m a stay-at-home mom, so I suck at my job.Why did God choose me?They deserve so. much. more.

I buy myself two minutes as I talk at the closed door.

Let mama throw on some clothes and put some makeup on.

I grab my hat and my mascara to hide my hair and my puffy eyes.

But you’re pretty enough, mama.

The words that came from the other side of my bedroom door stopped everything.

I stopped frantically searching for a bobby pin. I stopped my self-hate monologue. I just stopped.

I opened the door and hugged both of the little boys who had no idea what they had done to make me smile when I had just been yelling. They had been standing there ready and waiting.

They weren’t sighing at my lack of focus. They weren’t frustrated. They didn’t care what I looked like. They didn’t guilt me for slamming a door right in front of them.

They whine. They repeat themselves. over. and over. and over. Because that’s what little people do.

But they don’t judge and they don’t hate. So why do I?

I loaded the car with no mascara. (But with a hat, let’s not get crazy with that postpartum hair loss.)

With twenty minutes to spare for a twenty minute drive, I force myself, for once, to think of all the things I did right this morning.

I made eggs and toast. I packed two bags with snacks and extra clothes. My kids woke up with clean sheets and are now nestled into safe car seats.

These mundane Monday tasks may not prove merit to anyone else. I didn’t publish my first book today. I didn’t start my day with a killer workout. I didn’t cross out anything on my ever-growing home improvement to-do list.

But you’re pretty enough, mama.

For one moment, I stop thinking

I’ll do better the next day, and then the next day. Tomorrow, I’ll be more put-together

and realize that

I already am.

Every time that I accomplish a task, no matter how small, it doesn’t mean that I need to raise my standards.

Instead, motherhood has taught me that it’s okay to lower your standards for yourself every now and then. Because your standards aren’t just about you anymore.

They’ve doubled, tripled, quadrupled.

And if you’re like me, you expect yourself to cope just the same. Not just cope, but master. Knock it out of the park. every. time.

Today, I reversed my downward spiral into a pep-talk as I parked at the pediatrician’s office right on time.

I walked into the lobby with my hat and my glasses and my gratefulness.

Because children aren’t always our audience and mamas aren’t always the messengers.

And you’re not just pretty enough, mama,

you are enough.
