James Charles called out Pink News for a photo that was manipulated so poorly that anyone would be upset. He claims the media company has been doing nothing but troll him every other day.
Charles has had his fair share of sister scandals but it looks like someone really tried to do him dirty. The UK based media outlet, Pink News which claims to be one of the most read and watched LGBTQ+ news sites, posted this not so great altered photo on their snapchat discover page of James Charles.
The photo has a lot of noticeable wrinkles, exaggerated lips, balding spots, and a few other things that have people scratching their heads at this poor photoshop job. The photo, which came from a side by side comparison of celebs in 2020 vs. 2030, which has now been removed.
A fan posted it to Twitter with the caption “girl what have they done to you?” Now James is just under 21. Why would he have some wrinkles on his forehead like that or even be thinning out so poorly?
James Tweeted “I’m so sick of this. @pinknews is a joke. They claim to be a LGBTQ+ news outlet yet choose to clickbait ugly edited photos & completely false titles about me literally EVERY OTHER DAY instead of reporting about actual things going on in our community.”
Fans even went as far to defend James with tweets like: Good on you for calling them out. An LGBTQ+ outlet of all media personas should be anti bullying seeing as that is what majority of their viewership has been subjected to for years. Embarrassing and pathetic.
A lot of people have also commented on how Pink News seemed to troll James Charles more than celebrate any of his accomplishments.
The news company issued a statement saying “Dear James, We made an oversight on a recent Snapchat story about you. The story did not align with our core values and has been removed. PinkNews stands for the fundamental rights of the entire LGBT+ community and its allies. We exist to inform, inspire change and empower others to be themselves.” […] “This Snapchat story did not align with these values. Stay fierce, sister.” Many of the articles that Pink News has even published use James as clickbait with titles like …
“Did James Charles Die” and “MANNY MUA DENIED HOOKING UP WITH JAMES CHARLES.” and James is tired of putting out fires he didn’t start these days.
If you remember, James has had his fair share of firestorms in the past few months too. Over New Year, the beauty guru had a hiccup where people claimed he was using a racial slur while singing the song “My Type.” Fans quickly pointed out how it sounded like he said the N word in his instagram story. James said. “No turn up the volume and listen, I skip over it. How stupid would I have be to confidently record a video of me singing the n word and still have it up the next morning.”
James is also not a stranger to calling out brands and other people when he has been wronged either!
The latest brand he called out happened to be Wet N Wild after they debuted a palette that was shockingly similar to his Morphe Palette. Nearly every color matched and overall it wasn’t cute.
