James Charles is the most famous person on YouTube. He talked about the allegations of inappropriately messaging teenage boys in a recent video.
The 21-year-old uploaded a new video on the platform on Thursday and is responsible for flirting or texting (sexual texting) with minors.
He said: “I am very reckless.” He confirmed that he had interacted with the minor at least twice. “These conversations should never happen.”
He explained how to add two minors on Snapchat, and “asked them how old they were, was told they were 18, trusted them, had a rash conversation, and later found out that they were 16.”

Charles said he was “embarrassed”, and when it turned out their age, he “blocked two people.”
Internet sources said: “I need to be responsible for my actions, and more importantly, apologize to the people affected by it.”
In March, multiple minors came forward on social media and shared screenshots of their conversation with Charles. Someone claimed that he asked them to provide nude photos and/or sent them explicit photos and messages.
The beauty guru with more than 25 million YouTube users admitted that he believes these people are older.

Charles said: “I believe in the information provided to me, not the information I should have.” “As I do more research and self-reflection on this topic, I realize the specific details of receipts and screenshots and interactions. It doesn’t matter, because I’m already established and I need to act responsibly for my actions and apologize to the people affected by it.”
The makeup artist added how he now understands the dynamic imbalance between celebrities and fans.

He believes: “Even if it’s not intentional, there will be power imbalances.” “What I didn’t get before was that the excitement of talking with celebrities was literally enough to make someone do something or say they usually Things that would not be done. Even if the celebrity did not even deliberately provide weapons for their fame, money or property. Power. I just didn’t get the concept, but now I know.”
