As a gay man, I enjoy the simple things in life. For starters: avoiding cargo shorts, listening to Carly Rae Jepsen, and causing hurricanes.
But if there is one thing I can’t live without, it’s some capital-D DRAMA. And sweeties, have I got a kettle full of tea for you. 2017’s *HOTTEST* (and most random) celebrity feud is between the kid actors from It and James Charles, the popular makeup artist/YouTuber.
All the drama started a few weeks ago when It was first in movie theaters. You may remember James Charles first getting in trouble then. If not, I’ll do a SparkNotes version for you.
Basically, he started tweeting DURING the movie that he wasn’t enjoying it (it as in It.)
He deleted the original tweets, but then felt obliged to explain WHY he hated the movie so much. Roger Ebert was shook.
Which is fine! Taste is subjective! But then Finn Wolfhard —
one of the actors from It — decided to call James out on something ELSE entirely…the fact he was texting and tweeting DURING the movie, which is a big no-no.
James tried to play it cool at first…
…and sort of walked back his comments on what he thought about the movie…
…and even recorded this INSANE video from the backseat of an Uber trying to settle it (the drama, not It the movie) once and for all.
BUT PEOPLE WERE STILL COMING FOR HIM FOR USING HIS PHONE IN THE THEATER.
So James clapped back…
…and tried to move on.
Which brings us to this week. Just in time for Halloween, James posted a makeup tutorial to his YouTube channel where he explains how to get Pennywise the Clown’s signature look.
FWIW, based on this Snapchat (I couldn’t determine when it was uploaded, just sometime in-between the initial drama and him posting the tutorial) James knows he’s about to stir some shit up.
A day after James’ video was uploaded, actor Wyatt Oleff — who plays Stanley in the movie — seemed to subtweet the YouTuber.
He also tweeted this right after.
Fans started to pile on, but it wasn’t until fellow YouTuber Shane Dawson replied to Wyatt’s tweet with James’ handle, jokingly asking that the makeup artist not make another apology video.
IT. WAS. ON. LIKE. DONKEY. KONG.
Wyatt then seemed to temper his initial comments…
…but James was having NONE OF IT, claiming that not only did he already apologize, but that Wyatt knew by tweeting it would result in fans dragging him AGAIN.
For which Wyatt tried to apologize.
And then sent out THIS tweet, trying to get his own fans to stand down.
And just when it seemed like all was well, we piled up at the finish line. James replied “thank you sister”…
…and Wyatt corrected him to “brother.”
James replied back with this It-themed joke…
…to which ANOTHER actor from It, Nicholas Hamilton (who plays Henry Bowers in the movie) replied with the “I’m-so-over-it-can-we-just-end-this-already” statement:
And that’s where we end things. Meanwhile, I’m over here waiting for more drama like…
