James Charles strips naked while sunbathing, disturbed fans tell him to put his buttocks away
YouTube sensation and make-up guru James Charles seems to be not too bothered by the inconvenience caused by the ongoing pandemic as he has found rather interesting ways to keep himself occupied.
The 20-year-old Charles took to Twitter a few moments ago to share a picture of himself which has managed to spark a range of reactions from fans.
In the latest post, Charles is seen lying flat on his stomach naked, while getting his bare buttocks in the frame. Sporting minimal makeup and accessories, the make-up artist ensured his well-manicured nails were also on display.
While his idea of "A beautiful day", as his caption read, involves soaking some sun while lying naked during the lockdown, fans were of a different opinion.
The racy picture soon went viral clocking over 43,000 likes and more than 4000 retweets. However, an unimpressed fan wrote, "put your buttocks away sir", while another added, "NOT A GOOD DAY ANYMORE", trolling him for his caption.
A few more comments directed at his not so appreciated post stated, "Bro just throw the whole account away" and "I am gonna pretend I didn't see it." Another Twitter user noted, "Well, that's one way to promote your new YouTube show LOL."
However, not letting the negative comments get to his head, Charles himself responded to a couple of comments with rather hilarious responses.
When one fan asked, "Did u get hacked again haha", taking a did at his latest post, he replied, "not this time." Charles' picture also grabbed the attention of fellow YouTuber Colby Brock, who wrote, "competition", to which Charles offered an on-point response saying, "there’s no competition baby I already won."
Charles, who is openly gay, first launched his YouTube channel in 2015 primarily focusing on make-up. The channel currently boasts over 18.6 million subscribers, making him the #1 most subscribed beauty guru with over 2 billion views.
At the age of 17 in 2016, he became the first male spokesmodel for the cosmetics brand CoverGirl and worked alongside Katy Perry.
Thanks to his rising popularity across social media, he won an award in 2017 for the best channel in the beauty category at the 8th Streamy Awards. He also did Iggy Azalea's makeup for her music video 'Sally Walker' and even made a cameo in it.
On April 24, 2020, he launched his new series on YouTube titled 'Instant Influencer'.
