16 Of James Charles’s Biggest Scandals, Ranked
When he called Ariana Grande the “rudest celebrity” he’d ever met
In March 2018, James uploaded a video with fellow YouTubers Shane Dawson and Ryland Adams. When Shane asked James who the rudest celebrity he’d ever met was, he quickly answered Ariana Grande. Are you shook? Because we were.
“I haven’t really talked about it because I really like Ariana, I guess I just had a really crappy experience with her,” James said in the vid. The reason behind his answer is a little sketchy. Basically, Ariana and James had formed a little Twitter friendship after he attended one of her concerts, but when people started tweeting Ari about James’s Ebola scandal (which we’ll come to later), she unfollowed James and cut off all ties.
“I messaged her back, and I was like, ‘Hey, did I do something wrong?’ And she literally was like, ‘Hey babe, I saw a lot of angry tweets from my fans and I would never want to disappoint them, so I unfollowed,'” James recalled. Although James thought this was extremely RUDE of Ariana, her fans weren’t happy with him for calling her out and backed up her decision to unfollow him.
