16 Of James Charles’s Biggest Scandals, Ranked
When he joked about the Ebola virus
Back when he was first rising to fame, James tweeted a joke about contracting the Ebola virus while visiting South Africa. “‘I can’t believe we’re going to Africa today omg what if we get Ebola.’ ‘James we’re fine we could’ve gotten it at chipotle last year’…” he wrote on Twitter. Twitter users called James’s insensitive joke “stereotypical & degrading” before he issued a public apology. While saying he was extremely sorry for the tweet, he also referred to Africa, a continent, as a country. That says it all really, doesn’t it?
