James Charles is currently facing serious allegations of sexual misconduct as he admitted to s*xting with minors and having other inappropriate text exchanges with them. He addressed the allegations and said that he wasn’t aware that the people he was talking to were underage and when he found out, he stopped talking to them. James said that he’s taking time to reflect and take a social media break.
However, people weren’t happy that James isn’t facing more drastic punishment for his actions and were calling out Morphe for not breaking business ties with him. It seems like they finally came to a decision.
Morphe ends business with the beauty influencer amid the accusations
The cosmetic company Morphe made the official statement today via Twitter:
In light of the recent allegations against James Charles, Morphe and James have agreed to end our business relationship and wind down sales of the Morphe x James Charles product offering.
It is and has always been Morphe’s goal to create a positive, safe, and empowering space where all beauty lovers can freely share their artistry and passion for cosmetics, and Morphe is committed to furthering that goal.”
James Charle’s statement regarding Morphe situation
Moreover, James Charles also made a similar announcement on his Twitter, talking about the Morphe situation. He talked about how his business partners had gained a lot of negative comments and backlash for associating with him after his recent allegations. He added that he enjoyed working with Morphe,
“I’ve loved every moment working together, and am beyond grateful for what we’ve created together,”
And then continued saying that it was a mutual decision to part ways with each other. The project they were working on together was the James Charles X Morphe collaboration. The collaboration included makeup palettes and brush sets by the YouTuber.
James Charles talked about Morphe and ‘false allegations’ surrounding him
James Charles further reiterated what he said in his apology video about taking accountability for his actions and learning to grow from his mistakes. And he said that after the video was posted, several people have come out with false and misleading allegations against him that he says aren’t true.
Recently, James Charles is facing allegations that he messaged minors and flirted with them inappropriately. There was also an exchange of explicit pictures between him and the underage fans he messaged. However, Charles maintains that he didn’t know about their age when this incident occurred. Some of the allegations have turned out to be false. But one of the accusers, a 16-year-old boy told news publication Insider that he did tell James about his real age and he still flirted with him.
There’s more to the story
However, James said that he was told the age was 18. The victim still maintains that James Charles tried to groom him. Grooming involves forming a bond with a minor so that they can ultimately abuse them or exploit them for their own gain.
Many critics of Charles such as Ethan Klein and Trisha Paytas have called him out and said that admitting to s*xting with minors and getting n*de pictures from them is a criminal offense. Even Keemstar has called James Charles out and many critics want Charles to go to jail. Though, only authorities can make that decision.
Let’s see what happens next.
