On February 26, 2021, YouTuber James Charles was accused of "grooming" a 16-year-old boy he met on Snapchat. The acclaimed makeup artist has now responded to the said allegations. The person who goes by the name Isaiyah (Twitter: @Isaiyah13) has uploaded his conversation with Charles on Twitter where he alleged that the 21-year-old YouTuber and make-up artist was reportedly pleasuring himself and wanted nude pictures of his body.

Soon after Isaiyah posted a video where he accused Charles, the famous YouTuber took to Twitter to share his side of the story. He revealed that last week he met a person on Instagram whom he later added on Snapchat. Charles further wrote, “The next morning, I woke up to several snaps from this person being excited I added him back, saying he loved me, and also lewd photos of himself in the shower.” When Charles asked the person to confirm his age he told him “he was 18”, and it was then when Charles flirted back. However, when Isaiyah admitted that “he was 16”, Charles immediately told him he was uncomfortable and even apologized for flirting but the fan “insisted on continuing talking, saying it could be our little secret.”

Who is Isaiyah?

The 16-year-old Isaiyah is a fashion model who took to TikTok and Twitter to share the ordeal he faced while talking to James Charles. Isaiyah, who goes by the name REDZAI on TikTok, shared the two-part videos with his 200K plus followers on TikTok. He also shared those videos on Twitter for a better reach. In the videos, he recalls the time when James Charles added him on Snapchat. After learning that Charles has added him, he got pretty excited as he was his “biggest influence -- influencer wise and I have always looked up to him.” Isaiyah then shared proof of the notification where Charles had added him on Snapchat.



“I went into the bathroom and I guess he saw the bathroom light so he started to make the conversation very sexual and made me really uncomfortable,” Isaiyah said. He then showed a screenshot of a video where there is a superimposed text that reads, “Send me a vid where u like put your phone down in the shower and record hands free u flexing and showing off ur muscles and hair hehe”. The subsequent video text reads, “I bet you can make me finish by just flexing and showing off your hair (body hair) haha without even taking your d!ck out.”

Isaiyah revealed that the acclaimed YouTuber started to send him explicit pictures of his body which made him very uncomfortable. He later told Charles that he is only a 16-year-old but Charles allegedly kept on asking for the pictures and videos of his body.

Is James Charles lying?

After Charles revealed what actually happened, Isaiyah posted a screen recording of his conversation with Charles and wrote, “he was asking for me to send him pictures of my body right after me telling him I’m 16. Hope this clears things up”. Isaiyah has added more proof that his TikTok profile shows his real age. He wrote, "11 weeks ago, I never changed it."




As of now, there is no written proof that suggests if or when Isaiyah told the YouTuber his real age. However, several on Twitter have started to slam Charles for being a liar. One user wrote, "Ok and James could easily lie to save his image it’s only his word of mouth 0 evidence on his part so far. And sending a face pic whilst in the bathroom (not shower) isn’t an issue until a 21 sexualises a 16 year old". While another wrote, "The evidence is him sending nudes to the kid, lied to or not is still fucked up and not sure if the lie would be of any value if this went to a court room." Another user resonated similar thoughts, "james he has his tik tok account posted to his Instagram highlights and it clearly says he’s 16". Another tweeted, "I'm so OVER It. This isnt the first time this has happened. . He needs to just stop engaging/ Flirting with people on snapchat. Not everyone has the best intentions and he out of all people should know that..I would've been tired of it already". Another wrote, "James charles is a pathological liar and manipulator."
