It seems that COVID-19 is getting active again and making people sick. Recently, James Charles announced that he has tested positive for Coronavirus. According to him, he was vaccinated and got booster shots as well. However, it could not keep him safe from the virus. Similarly, Shane Dawson and Ryland Adams have also tested positive for the virus. So far, it’s unclear if they were taking precautions or not.
James Charles attended a party at the pandemic’s peak and faced backlash.
In July 2020, James Charles attended a party with Nikita Dragun, Charli, Dixie D’Amelio, Emma Chamberlain, and many others. It was the birthday party of Hype House’s Larray. After the news went viral, people criticized the influencers. Which prompted James Charles to issue an apology. He posted a video on his YouTube channel in which he explained:
“Even though I have been wearing a mask in public and have tested negative multiple times, going to a party during a pandemic was a selfish and stupid decision. People’s safety and keeping COVID-19 contained is FAR more important than celebrating a friend’s birthday and unsafe partying is not something I want to promote to my audience. I encourage you guys to be smarter than I was. Wear your masks and continue to social distance.”
Meanwhile, Shane Dawson and Jeffree Star claimed that they had COVID-19 simultaneously.
After James Charles apologized, Jeffree Star and Shane Dawson revealed that they both had coronavirus together. While shooting a video, Star said:
“I don’t think I’ve ever said this out loud, I don’t know why I never talk about it, but way back in February, me, Shane, Madison and a bunch of my employees had COVID. So I had it so long ago. I’ve gotten tested a lot. We’ve done a lot of photo shoots. And I get tested all the time and I’ve never retested [positive].”
However, Dawson claimed that he had given Star the virus, along with his partner, Ryland Adams.
James Charles and Shane Dawson recently revealed that they have tested positive again.
In an Instagram story, James Charles informed that he has tested positive for coronavirus again. He wrote:
Double vaxxed and boosted and just tested positive for covid woooo.
In a podcast, Ryland Adams revealed that he and Shane Dawson are not living together at the moment as they both have tested positive for Omicron. According to him, he and Shane are the only ones who have tested positive, and the other people in their proximity have tested negative. At the same time, he claimed that Shane had more severe symptoms.
We hope that all of them get well soon and stay safe in the future.
