Don't believe everything you read on the internet.

James Charles recently attempted a social media hiatus (kind of), but it wasn’t long until he was posting again, attending the launch of Kylie Jenner’s new skincare range.

Posting a photo to Instagram with Kylie herself with the caption ‘sisters’ and a photo with Kris Jenner as well as a video of himself strutting into the event with his BFFs Nikita Dragun and Gabriel Zamora, it was hardly a low-key affair.

But some fans were quick to criticise James’ quick return to socials as well as the fact that, despite posting a picture with Kylie, she may have unfollowed him during the recent drama with Tati Westbrook.

In response to those questioning the posts he did from Kylie's event, he tweeted: "I said I wouldn’t be filming for a bit and would pop in on my other socials, point being to focus on living rather than forcing content. Healing for me consists of doing things that make me happy, such as playing with makeup & being social, instead of laying in bed all day."

"Social media is a part of my life and I like keeping up with all of you, and I know a lot of you like keeping up with me! Posting a few stories of me smiling doesn't mean "I'm better" or my break was for sympathy. It means I'm trying to move on with my life and better myself."

Replying to the photo, one fan commented: “but she unfollowed you lol”, to which James was quick to reply: “she never followed in the first place lol don’t believe everything you read on the internet”.

So there it is then. You’ve been warned. Don’t believe everything you see online.
