Just when all were thinking if 2020 gets any worst, James Charles received this PR Package from Lauren Conrad. We all know history repeats itself but this time it happened in less than a week. Recently James Charles and Manny Mua criticized people who don’t wear makeup at all and come out with makeup brands. Their direct hit was specifically meant for ‘Alicia Keys’. Later, James apologized to Alicia in a long tweet for his shade.
James Charles Shades Lauren Conrad
So Lauren Conrad is a very famous designer who just launched a skincare and makeup line ‘Lauren Conrad Beauty’. And she sent a PR package to James which was accidentally got filled with the empty components.
And when James Charles opened the PR package, he went totally ballistic.
“I just git a PR package from a new makeup brand from somebody who has no business having a makeup brand. And I just want to show you guys some of these products.”
So James showed the empty component of the liquid highlighter and the eyeliner pen which didn’t have any ink. And somebody who is already having a rough day might react to things a little differently. He repeated, “Stop stop making makeup brands. stop.”
Then James decided to take some time off from social media and tried to calm down.
“I don’t know what it is, but today is just not it. And I truly feel like I am being tested by the universe. I feel like the reality show cameras are about to walk out and say ‘Haaa, ‘GOTCHA’ any second, right.”
Lauren’s reaction to James’ outburst
Meanwhile, Lauren made this post and explained the whole story behind the PR package filled with the empties. And ‘Here For The Tea‘ shared Lauren’s response and the whole story on their Instagram.
“For those asking about the empty components sent to James.. let me tell you a fun story. The women who put together the gifts (it was me) decided to fill a makeup bag full of makeup samples to make sure everything would fit inside. When beauty products arrived and it was time to fill all the makeup bags she (again, me) accidentally included the bag full of empties with the others, and it was sent out. She(me) will be let go immediately.”
Umm, *awkward silence*. I don’t even know what to say. Meanwhile, James posted an apology to Lauren on his social media and cried himself to sleep.
James’ apology seems very genuine. Yes, he should not have reacted the way he did. But he was already having a very bad day and Lauren’s PR package made him lose his calm.
He further added in the apology post that he spoke to Lauren privately and cleared the whole misunderstanding. Guess, we will be seeing a makeup collaboration between the two real soon.
And I just want to add this one little thing here, ‘Please stay positive and neutral’. James was feeling frustrated due to some obvious reasons. But he doesn’t have to act as a ‘gatekeeper’ in the makeup world. As everyone deserves a shot. If fans want to buy his products, they will buy it anyway.
