16 Of James Charles’s Biggest Scandals, Ranked
His outragerously priced tour tickets
Like most YouTubers, James has been involved in a scandal to do with exploiting his followers for money. Last April, James announced he would be embarking on a makeup tour. Sounds great, right? Well, the only catch was that the meet and greet passes were priced at over $500 per person and general admission at over $100 when taxes and fees came into play. If that wasn’t bad enough, James was then accused of blocking followers who were questioning the expensive price. When trying to justify his ticket prices, James tweeted: “It comes with a goodie bag with a super high dollar value, meet and greet, front row seating, chance of being brought on stage, first access to merch, and a pre show q&a,” but his fans still weren’t having it.
“James I love you, but those ticket prices are far too much. And blocking/unfollowing people who criticize the prices is wrong. Also to promote those gimmicky sugar filled hair vitamins is wrong. Think about your fans. A lot of people can afford those tickets,” one wrote. James never changed his prices, but he later canceled the tour altogether.
