    On today's episode:

    1. Today we’re talking about influencers being accused of doing some pretty horrible things. Youtuber James Charles had his account demonetized and was dropped from several deals earlier this week after being accused of sending underage teens sexually explicit messages.

    And TikTok star Bryce Hall had a lawsuit filed against him claiming he used racial slurs in an altercation at a restaurant last year.

    Today BuzzFeed News Social Editor Stephanie McNeal is breaking it all down for us. She explains why both stars will likely make a full recovery, as influencers are very rarely canceled.

    2. A Muslim "American Idol" contestant is disappointed her historic audition didn’t air.
