It looks like James Charles and Logan Paul are in the midst of a major feud. Yep, the beauty guru just declared war on the controversial social media star after he edited James out of a picture on Instagram!
For those who missed it, James recently launched his own reality show on YouTube, called Instant Influencer. But when “Impaulsive” co-host and Maverick member Mike Majlak dropped his very own book, called “The Fifth Vital,” and took a picture of the billboard for it, he noticed something interesting.
Get this — the advertisement (which was located on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles, CA) was actually placed right in front of a billboard for James’ new show! Mike posted a snap of the two billboard’s to his Instagram Stories, which he captioned, “Best billboard placement ever.”
That’s when Logan got involved. He posted his own photo of the two advertisements while congratulation his friend on the new book, but this time, he edited out James’ billboard completely.

i can’t read, but I’m sure @heybigmike’s new book is great. he shoved 10 years of heroin addiction, violence, tragedy, trauma, AND most importantly: his road to recovery… into 250 pages of brilliance. so we surprised him with a big ol’ billboard on the walk of fame. do yourself a favor and go get “The Fifth Vital” now on @Amazon (Link in Bio)
The makeup mogul was not happy about it, and he quickly took to the comment section, writing, “YOU DID NOT BLUR OUT MY BILLBOARD BEHIND HIM OMFG.”
“Excuse me @LoganPaul, I don’t f**king think so! This means war,” he also wrote on Twitter.
Luckily, Logan was not trying to fight with the 20-year-old, and he quickly photoshopped the logo of James’ new show back on.
“I fixed it,” he replied.
“That’s what I thought, b**ch,” James added in one final message.
But not to worry, people, because it turns out, their online feud was all in good fun! James quickly shut rumors down that there was any real beef between them, explaining that the interaction was actually just a joke.
“We’re friends and soon-to-be neighbors,” he told a fan. “I’m just kidding… Kinda.”
we're friends and soon to be neighbors haha i'm just kidding… kinda

Logan also explained the situation on his Instagram Stories, writing, “Full transparency: two influencer billboards on one street is two many and I didn’t think @JamesCharles that we erased his billboard via photoshop but he did and now I feel bad.”
Phew, we’re so glad these two aren’t actually fighting!
