first of all I posted this in the youtube drama channel so if you don't care you can block is straight away
i made a summary of the James Charles drama in a comment the other day and it did fairly well so i thought there might be more people interested how it continues without having to watch another 40 minute video, so I'm making this summary of the newest addition to this drama as content since i have nothing better to do anyway.
James just posted a video defending himself from all allegations. he admits some of the things he did was wrong, but he brings up manipulation from multiple people, including some of the boys that came forth with sexual harassment allegations, displaying proof that they tricked him into saying stuff and then taking it out of context. he shows unedited screenshots of every text him and the others involved in this drama sent to each other, and adds his own bit to it. he mostly goes after Jeffree Star for purposefully shifting the truth and has a few things to say about Tati as well, although his intent does not seem malicious and he also thanks them for trying to calm everyone down regarding this drama. currently both Jeffree Star and Tati are rapidly losing subscribers.
Personally i thought this video was very well made. I think people mistake defending yourself with making excuses often times, but in this case the second side of the story was much needed in my opinion, since James never adressed it other than in his terrible apology and the allegations were fairly serious. the only bit i didnt like is that he managed to sneak in a little self-pity here and there, but i cant really blame him for that since i would probably do the same. innocent until proven guilty after all.
if you want to read the comment where i summed up everything prior to now, then i will link it here, hope at least someone found this mildly interesting
