To state the obvious for a second: This is not a great week to be YouTuber James Charles. Despite spending last week at the Met Gala, he walked right off the carpet and into a world of drama once his former close friend and fellow YouTuber Tati Westbrook called him out for questionable and inappropriate behavior in a 40+ minute video last week.
