Ever since Tati Westbrook exposed beauty guru James Charles for manipulating straight men and being a bad friend, James’ follower count continued to decrease at an alarming rate. Fans were shook to discover that some celebrities — including some of his former YouTube BFFs — swiftly clicked the unfollow button when the scandal reached its peak. Among the celebs rumored to have unfollowed the makeup artist was none other than Kylie Jenner, but on May 21, James and the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star officially reunited.
Yup! On Tuesday, May 21, the YouTube star hopped back on social media to share some video footage from the reality star’s Kylie Skin launch party. In the clips he posted, he was seen roller skating, hanging out with some of his other beauty guru friends and enjoying the all-pink bash. (Seriously, even the sushi was pink!)
Most importantly, though, the Kylie Cosmetics founder snapped a pic with the 20-year-old YouTuber, which he then posted on Instagram. NGL, it’s kind of adorable. And of course, James squeezed his signature catchphrase in there, captioning the photo with “Sisters” and a double heart emoji. So cute!
Even though their photo together is absolutely iconic, it did raise a ton of eyebrows since Kylie was on the list of people who allegedly unfollowed James in the wake of the scandal. According to James, however, the makeup mogul never actually followed him on the photo app to begin with, and therefore didn’t unfollow him at all.
“but she unfollowed you lol,” one person commented.
“she never followed in the first place,” James replied. “… stop believing everything you read on the internet.”
And that’s the tea, you guys. But although the 21-year-old didn’t unfollow James while his reputation was being torn to shreds online, there are several other celebs who actually did. From Ethan and Grayson Dolan to Demi Lovato, a lot of famous people felt it was best to disassociate from the makeup artist once the allegations against him came to the surface. Now that James uploaded a video with receipts, though, we can’t help but wonder if any of those people have any regrets.
