Goodbye James Charles! The social media star has become one of the most-subscribed people on YouTube, but the internet went into a frenzy on Tuesday, November 5 when his account suddenly disappeared! That’s right, the influencer’s YouTube page got deleted, and he was definitely not happy about it.

When the words “This video is no longer available because the YouTube account associated with this video has been terminated” started to appear on James’ videos, fans quickly took to Twitter to find out what was going on.

“@jamescharles please explain what happened to your channel!” one fan wrote, with another adding, “JAMES CHARLES’ YOUTUBE CHANNEL HAS BEEN CLOSED? ACCORDING TO MY YOUTUBE ANYWAY! Whats going on?”

But it turns out, even James had no clue what was going on!

“I have no idea,” the 20-year-old replied to a fan, who asked where his account went.

“My YouTube channel really said, ‘Bye sister,'” the beauty guru added.


It turns out, he wasn’t the only YouTuber affected by the glitch. Members of FaZe Clan also saw their channels suspended for seemingly no reason.

“My YouTube channel got deleted,” YouTuber FaZe Kay wrote.

What the h**l. My YouTube channel got terminated,” FaZe Rug also tweeted. Thankfully, it was only a glitch and all of their accounts came back a few hours later! Phew.

Back in September, James lashed out at YouTube when it changed its verification system, resulting in a bunch of stars losing their coveted gray checkmarks. The social media platform’s previous system allowed anyone with more than 100,000 subscribers to be verified. But now, YouTube is only verifying channels that have a “clear need for proof of authenticity.”

“I’m really sorry to the creators who are being unverified on @YouTube today. This decision is really pointless and it’s yet another change not a single person asked for,” the makeup mogul wrote at the time. “PLEASE know that you are still valid as a creator and I hope that a stupid checkmark doesn’t discourage you!”
