Recently, a woman claimed that James Charles is posing as a woman on Bumble. In the screenshots shared on Twitter, she shared the profile of the YouTuber. According to the profile, Charles listed himself as a woman and shared other details about himself. This is not the first time he has claimed to be a woman on dating apps. According to his fans, he did the same on Tinder as well. Meanwhile, many accuse him of manipulating straight men into hooking up with him. Sadly, this is not good news for the makeup artist as he is already facing grooming allegations.
In the past, James Charles claimed to be a woman on Tinder
As we all know, he has been in the news for all the wrong reasons. From SA allegations to allegations of grooming underage boys, James Charles is in hot waters. At the same time, his fans claimed that he is listed as a woman on Tinder, a dating app. Many heterosexual men claimed that they came across his profile while looking for women. When his friendship fell apart with the fellow YouTuber, Tati Westbrook, she accused James Charles of preying on straight men. She said:
“You are using your fame, your power, your money, to play with people’s emotions. You’re threatening to ruin them. You’re threatening to embarrass them, and you’re doing that to have them behave sexually in your favor, even if they’re straight.”
In response to this, the YouTuber slammed the accusers and denied the allegations.
After he was accused of listing as a female, James Charles hit back at his haters. Not only did he deny the accusations, he dragged his accusers as well. In a tweet, he said:
“I’m so sick of people talking about this. 1. My identity on dating apps was listed as “androgynous” – someone who expresses themselves in both feminine & masculine ways. NOT a female to “trick” anyone. 2. Everytime someone said they were straight, I unmatched right away.”
Recently, the Youtuber was once again accused of listing as a woman on Bumble.
According to a woman, James Charles is again claiming to be a woman on dating apps. This time, his verified profile is on Bumble. However, this time the allegations are not without proof. In a tweet, the woman posted screenshots of the profile belonging to James Charles. At the same time, Bumble has strict rules which means that the profile is actually YouTuber’s. On Bumble, one must submit their selfies in several poses which are screened to check if the person is catfishing or not. Therefore, it is difficult for people to pose as someone else. The news comes when James Charles is already under fire for allegations of grooming underage boys and harassing straight men.
