That's a... strange reason

James Charles has called out Ariana Grande in a new video.

James was taking part in a "beauty battle" with fellow YouTube stars Shane Dawson and Ryland Adams, who asked him questions while they gave him a makeover. One of the questions they asked him: "Who is the rudest celebrity you've ever met?" James answered Ariana.

What exactly did the 'Into You' singer do to incur the wrath of Mr Charles? Well it's actually a pretty ridiculous story. It turns out that Ariana followed James after he messaged her to tell her how much he had enjoyed one of her shows.

So far, so good.

Then, when James was caught up in a racism scandal, it came to his attention to that Ariana had unfollowed him. He got in touch with her to find out why and she replied: "Hey, babe. I just saw a lot of angry tweets from my fans. I would never wanna disappoint them, so I unfollowed." 

This infuriated James and seems to have ruined his relationship with Ariana (insofar that it ever existed). He replied to her: "You have 100 million fans. It's really disappointing that you'd stoop to the level of listening to people bullying me just to appease them, but ok." This is a pretty telling reply, not least because it seems to show that he wasn't sorry at all for his controversial joke about Africa and ebola.

What do you make of this? Personally we're confused about how she's 'the rudest celebrity he ever met' considering they didn't actually seem to ever, you know, meet.
