I really wonder why she didn't do more with the Holo cosplay from Spice & Wolf. She looked cute with the wig and ears, and the character canonically has a lot of nude scenes. All she has to do is find some wheat fields or something and pose nude in it, or even buy a big bunch of apples and pose with them in the background.
What if her meeting with Charles was actually a meeting with his lawyers? I wonder, maybe they made a deal to not speak of this matter further and avoid a big fat lawsuit? Because I can't imagine any influencer dropping an issue they *know* they'd get in major shit for if they do drop it, receipts or lack thereof, without some threat to their bank account far greater than being "cancelled". Methinks James lawyered up but perhaps kept it secret because suing would make him look bad/weak, or it is just easier to settle out of court.
Conspiracy: they all agreed to start all the drama beforehand to make $$$, Tati gets people to buy her vitamins, James Charles gets to earn thousands in views, Jeffree's makeup is known by audiences outside of those who watch YouTube since apparently this shit show is on the news. All win. Perhaps James losing so many subs was unexpected, so obvs hired a PR company to write up the next video.
Glad she's out. Noods seems like the last person anybody would ever wanna live with. Girl can't even tidy shit off her own floor. She treated PKC like shit and then wonders why nobody aside from her beardneck following likes her lmao
Honestly. Why the hell are people even using his age as an excuse? It doesn't matter. I'm around his age and I'm capable to holding myself and my peers accountable for our actions. Age doesn't justify it at this point, he's not stupid, he knows what he's doing lol. And I see no problem with older individuals in the community going after him, they are all adults and all are responsible for their actions. He happens to have interacted with older members of the beauty community, so they are the ones who know him the most. If you are over 16 you can be tried as an adult in the court of law because you have the mental capacity to separate right from wrong, and you know the possible consequences of such actions. JC is 19, has his apartment, he for sure knows how fucked up it is to play with somebody's sexuality and make his fans send death threats to anyone going against him. Everybody is stinking shit in this situation, JC, J*, Tati, all have guilt on them. Age does not justify his actions. The shit he's done is serious and just because he is "young" does not mean he should be caught any slack for the shady things he's done. His shit eating grin every time he mentions "straight boys" displays fully well that he knows what he's doing.
Tbh I don't think she really expected the backlash that her video would cause James Charles. His behaviour towards "straight boys" and making people uncomfortable was well-documented before, but people didn't seem to care much until somebody with a large following mentioned it. Which is a bit worrying IMO. He should have faced consequences far earlier, especially for sending his fans after people. Those kids have no qualms about sending death threats etc and it just is not at all okay.
It reminds me of the whole Daddy of Five situation. People were okay with the abuse, found it funny, and even encouraged it. It is only when a channel with large following calls it out when things actually change and the audience begins to think "wait, actually, yes, this *IS* fucked up". I am not really disappointed with Tati per se for not doing something so drastic earlier. She loved him, she was his mentor, and she tried to get him to get help but she failed. Maybe her intentions were not completely genuine, but manipulative people get to you in many different ways. The people who should hold themselves accountable are his following who were complicit in his actions and encouraged it, found it funny even. It stopped being funny when somebody who is popular actually laid it out in words, actually putting into perspective how horrid it truly is.
All on his Twitter, his sexual comments about "straight Bois". And videos of him making the Dolan twins uncomfortable with his advances etc etc etc. Some people can take it as a joke, but it really isn't funny. And again, think of the countless times he sent his fans to bully and harass other people, who subsequently made death threats etc to these people. That behaviour is not okay.
If you want to discuss this further, just take it to PMs rather than clogging the thread with whiteknighting, thx. I don't pay attention to what you, specifically, post, and I will leave it at that. It may not be particularly good to be too passionate about drama between people who don't know you personally, for your own mental health, it may be better to keep some distance from drama.
Regardless of Tati's intentions, he really glazed over the sexual harassment issue. He was bringing the video to a new audience, so he should have researched it properly. JC making his fans go after anybody criticising him is also gross.
Just because shit calls other shit on being shit, don't mean it's not shit. Nothing is black and white, sure, Tati probably isn't trustworthy either. But as somebody with such a huge and loyal following, PDP has a duty to make sure that his content is well-researched. By glazing over the very problematic behaviour on behalf of JC, he is signifying that that behaviour is not all that serious. His fanbase is young and naïve, so it is damaging for him to not address the bigger issues. He is not debunking anything, nor is he standing for what is right, by neglecting to address the full story and the problematic things that JC did in the past. PDP is not a hero, he is just jumping on the bandwagon to make that sweet $$$ just like all the other channels covering the drama. And he's not even doing a good job while he's at it.
He literally jumped into making a video without properly addressing it or doing proper research into it. Ain't nothing admirable about him, he just has a massive platform so his fans eat everything he says without question.
