"drama aside, i have something to say...."
Basically, James Charles and Tati Westbrook's friendship is over. Finished. DEAD. James betrayed Tati, who owns vitamin company Halo Beauty, by promoting a rival supplement brand at Coachella.
Jeffree Star calls James Charles a "danger to society" after Tati Westbrook drama
Although he apologised for the mistake, Tati ended their friendship and exposed him in a 43 minute video. Soon, Jeffree Star, singer Zara Larsson and various Twitter users began revealing his inappropriate behaviour towards straight men.

I was trying to think of a funny caption but nothing seems right because of what this person means to me. Tati is someone who I’ve known about for years but who I just started really watching in the last few months because of my research on the beauty world. Since watching her I’ve had this insane connection to her and her videos have helped me so much, not just with makeup but with my anxiety and with my stress. I’ve had a lot of hard things happen in the last few months and being able to turn on one of her videos at night and hear her calming voice has been really healing for me. Tati, thank you for everything you do and thank you for being just as beautiful on the inside as you are on the out. Meeting you was something I will never forget. Love you :,) ❤️
"You tried to trick a straight man into thinking that he's gay yet again, and somehow you're the victim," Tati said in the video.
"You know it's really disgusting to manipulate someone's sexuality. You are using your fame, your power, your money to play with people's emotions. You're threatening to ruin them, you're threatening to embarrass them, and you're doing that to have them behave sexually in your favour even if they're straight, and you know what, that's not okay."
James has now lost millions of subscribers over the whole fiasco – but Tati has gained three million. The "Bye Sister" video also received 15 million views on Saturday and 18 million on Sunday, meaning it was one of the most viewed channels over the weekend.

A host of YouTubers have called James out and now it's now clear where Shane stands in the drama. Shane has showed his support to Tati and Halo Beauty on Twitter.
Shane showed off the results of using Halo Beauty and how his skin had dramatically improved since using the skin minerals. He tweeted: "drama aside, i have something to say…," before including a link to the Halo Beauty website.
"I have been using @halobeauty for 1 month and 2 weeks and it's really helped my skin and hair," he added. "my red patchy face has always been an insecurity of mine and i can genuinely say that @glamlifeguru's vitamins really worked for me. thank you tati for putting your heart and soul into his product and thank you for making me feel better about my face. love u."
Shane then added a photo of Tati from her website and a before-and-after photo of his skin, which had dramatically cleared.
It looks like that's another point to Team Tati.
