James Charles Gets Canceled Again… This Time For Appearing To Say The N-Word
James Charles never goes long without a scandal and he rung 2020 in with a big racism scandal.
The YouTube star posted on his Instagram Stories partying on New Years’ Eve, but it’s when Saweetie track “My Type” came on the loudspeakers that the CoverGirl ambassador got himself in trouble. James filmed himself singing along to the certified BOP — but some believe he refused to censor himself when Saweetie sang the n-word.
“Rich n****, eight-figure, that’s my type! That’s my type, n**** that’s my type,” was blasting at the party while James sang along. “Eight-inch big, ooh, that’s good pipe. Bad bitch, Imma ride the dick all night!”

James, for his part, says he “skipped” the n-word, but some think they can see his mouth moving to the racist word.
no? turn up the volume & listen, I skip over it. how stupid would I have to be to confidently record a video of me singing the n word and still have it up the next morning

He is though I slowed it down and you can clearly hear him saying it along with the song in the first part then mouthing it in the second part pic.twitter.com/vTJvnAJrxz

This is not the first time that James Charles has been accused of racist behavior. In 2017, he was compelled to apologize after joking in a tweet that he might get Ebola while on a trip to Africa.
Sadly, the conversation devolved into a debate on whether or not non-Black people can sing along to the n-word when it’s in songs created by black artists. Spoiler alert: they can’t, but some white people still don’t get it.
