The famous TikToker, Bella Poarch, blew her fans’ minds when she released the music video of her single “Build a B*tch”. The video is filled with famous celebrities and influencers like Larray, Mia Khalifa, and Bretman Rock. However, a fellow TikToker, Zilber Steve, shared a clip that showed that James Charles was also hanging out on the set of the music video. A Twitter page named DefNoodles initially reported that James’ cameo did make it to the final cut. Fans were quick to find out that Charles, in fact, did make a brief appearance in the song. He seems to be walking away from a burning building with Larray. But the whole scene is filled with smoke so you can’t actually see him properly.
Why did Bella Poarch cut James Charles from her music video?
Bella Poarch and James Charles have worked together previously but Bella cut Charles from her recent music video. It seems like Bella did not want James in her video because of the said allegations against the MUA and YouTuber. A few weeks ago James’ was accused of se*ting and sending inappropriate messages to underage fans. Charles went on a social media hiatus after the allegations but came back very soon. Before going on a hiatus, he posted a video which he titled “Holding myself accountable”. According to James, he self-reflected and realized that he had fuc*ed up. James also explained that he did not know that he was talking to minors as they had lied about their age. But fans think that is another made-up story by Charles and he in fact did know.
What I was not getting before is that the excitement comes that comes with talking to a celebrity is literally enough to make somebody do or say something that they normally would not do. Even if that celebrity is not weaponizing their fame, money, or power. And that is the concept I just was not getting but now I do.
He recently posted a picture of him and his dog on his Instagram where he faced backlash. Many people told him to go away because of the said allegations.
We honestly think that Bella Poarch did the right thing by cutting James from her video because no harasser should be given a platform. What are your thoughts on it?
