Did James Charles go completely bald or is it another scam? Photos reveal shaved head, Internet calls it 'fake'
Charles posted two images of himself on Twitter. Dressed in an all-black outfit complete with a black mask and contrasting silver chain, what stood out was that the social media star was bald!
James Charles is always taking the internet by storm with every post. The internet personality star is often in the news for his makeup tutorials but more so often for his close friendships with many stalwarts of the industry. However, the latest pictures that he uploaded on Twitter, the social media personality has left viewers shocked and confused. Yet many also called out what could be one of his scams.
Charles posted two images of him on Twitter earlier on Thursday, February 11. Dressed in an all black outfit complete with a black mask and contrasting silver chain, the social media star was looking just like his usual self except for one thing that stood out — he was bald. In one image, he was wearing a mask and getting out of a car and in the other, he was seated at a table in a restaurant. So what is James Charles doing going around bald?
He posted the two photos with a baby emoji and immediately took Twitter by storm. "hot," one user simply said. "why is james charles bald," another asked. "James just joined the bald headed brigade," another user said.

Many users soon started sending in compliments and shocked reactions. However, it didn't take long for them to infer that it is fake. "oh sis... you tried.. but we know," one said. "this is fake but why he look like krillin," another user said noting the eerie similarities between Charles and a bald fictional character from the 'Dragon Ball' franchise, Krillin.

To a very confused user who asked, "i really can’t tell if this is fake or not," another responded with an image of Charles' head from behind showing creases.
Chances are this is very much fake. Notice how Charles did not share these images on his Instagram. His last post is related to makeup. On his stories, however, he posted a teaser of what he has planned for his hair before he uploaded the bald images on Twitter. "Wait until you guys see what i did with my hair," followed by the two images and a video of him winking.
Charles was recently in the news for pulling a TikTok scam on Kim Kardashian. He is famous for his "I'm busy" videos, where he FaceTimes a number of his popular friends and acquaintances and says something along the lines of "I'm busy, can I call you back later?" before abruptly hanging up.
When he called Kim K in the video posted on February 4, he was immediately caught redhanded as he asked, "What TikTok scam are you doing right now?" she blatantly asked him. He had also called Kardashian momager Kris Jenner, Lil Nax X, Bebe Rexha, JoJo Siwa and Iggy Azalea and played the same pranks on them as well.
