Antonio Garza has lost subscribers following her collaboration videos with James Charles.

YouTube makeup artist Antonio Garza has famously never filmed a collaboration video - ever. So it was a surprise when she flew out to LA to collaborate with fellow YouTube beauty guru James Charles. Her video with James Charles probably seemed really innocent at first. They filmed a cute lil 'get ready with us' video for James' channel, and then a question and answer mukbang on her channel. Really harmless stuff, nothing too juicy.

Then, she lost over 40,000 subscribers.

This might be because of James' controversial past - although he does talk in the video about how he deals with controversies. He said you should own up to any mistakes, and take full responsibility even if you don't understand what you've done wrong at the time.

It doesn't look like this was enough to save him, because on YouTube if you don't like someone, you really don't like them. Maybe James was too much for Antonio's fans to handle.

If you're unaware of why some people don't like James, he's been called out for being problematic in the past. He made comments about getting Ebola on a trip to Africa, and then called Africa a country, and when Ariana Grande unfollowed him because of his, he got a bit rude.

There are also screenshots of him saying 'Mexican Instagram slave' and 'stupid Indian man'. He has also been accused of stealing video ideas - including from Antonio herself.

In the comments, people were going off at James for the most random things.

James and all his belching was probably too much for Antonio's fans, and so they unsubscribed.

Or this could just be another case of viewers being unsubscribed without knowing.
