Now by now, you're probably familiar with the drama and the people involved. BUT...there have been a lot of screenshots of James Charles DMing/texting people floating around social media. Here they are — explained and contextualized for you.

1. Jay Alvarez, model:

2. Stephen Harrison, popular Instagrammer:

3. Sebastian Javier, musician:

so... last year i used to watch james charles quite a bit & i knew i was heading to LA so i thought i’d dm him & see if he wanted to hang. i didnt know a lot of people in LA, so i was just trying to make some friends;

i’m really not one to start drama, i just thought i would speak up about my experience with james charles. it’s not okay to force your sexuality on others & hopefully this will give people the message that it IS okay to speak up & talk about it. you are not alone.

What Happened: The musician shared his story with James with screenshots, saying, "So, last year i used to watch James Charles quite a bit & i knew i was heading to LA so i thought i’d dm him & see if he wanted to hang. i didn't know a lot of People in LA, so i was just trying to make some friends. We all turned out going to an escape room & that night i noticed him constantly trying to be touchy with me & overly compliment me but i just took it as him just being friendly. Then after the escape room, we (his friends, him, and I) went to his house to just hangout. As soon as we got to his house, he kept trying to just be alone with me & tried to get his friends out of the room.. as soon as they started to leave, he just went & hugged me really tight & started calling me names which made me really uncomfortable. I really just wanted to leave so i asked his friend if they could just take me back to my hotel.. that night he apologized about being overfly flirty & i was just trying to be nice & say that it was all okay.. I thought he had figured out i wasn’t interested. but after realizing i was honestly just trying to be friends with him, he kept calling me names like cutie every time we would talk & would send me messages like this... again.. i didn’t know what to say so I uncomfortably just kept saying it was alright. i’m really not one to start drama, I just thought I would speak up about my experience with James Charles. it’s not okay to force your sexuality on others and hopefully this will give people the message that it IS okay to speak up & talk about it. you are not alone."

10. Kahlen Barry, influencer:

since everyone else is spilling their James Charles tea, i met him two years ago at playlist live and he was disgustingly rude to me not once but twice. i made a video talking about my experience without saying his name and he then proceeded to victimize himself in my dms.
