James Charles is speaking up about online bullying. Particularly the hate TikTok star Charli D’Amelio has faced.

While on the “Unfiltered” podcast, Charles said he and D’Amelio speak “almost every single day.”

Most of the time, their conversations are giving advice on dealing with online harassment.

“She’s an amazing friend on a personal level; but on like a career level I’ve been really trying hard to be there for her, help wherever I can, give her and her family advice, just really be there,” he said. “She’s one of those people I wanna make sure she’s okay, taken care of and not gonna go crazy from the amount of pressure she’s under — ’cause its insane.”

The makeup expert continued, “There’s been so many times where she’ll call me so upset, or crying over comments or something that’s happened, she’ll be like, ‘What do I do?'”

But Charles does have advice for the teen star.

“You can’t care. You have to get over this. You are literally the most famous person on the planet, you can not let one person who said something stupid on TikTok get to your head,” he said he tells her.

“You are so successful, you are killing it, you have so many people that love you – you have to get over it.”

Charles followed up on Twitter to say the situation is “NOT sitting right with me…” He continued, by mentioning “30+ year old dragging someone half their age? feels familiar.”

Apparently, 32-year-old Trish Paytas felt he was referring to her, and fired back in a pair of tweets, calling for Charles to be cancelled. “He is a forever victim with a superiority conflict, has never said sorry his whole life/hangs out with an underage girl regularly,” she wrote.


D’Amelio fired back on Instagram Live.

“Some people are getting involved just to get involved. And I’m just going to say it. Trisha Paytas, this is not — sorry, you have been completely rude to me multiple times, saying, ‘she doesn’t have a personality, she can’t dance and she is basic.’ Like, you have your own problems. Please, stop worrying about mine,” she said. “And that’s all I have to say on that. Just please stop talking about me. You’re not a very nice person. Sorry.”


Charles has had his fair share of online trolls attacking him, but the YouTuber says TikTok is the worst since negative comments show up first.

The two recently collaborated on a number of videos for Halloween, all of which took the top six spots on YouTube’s trending list.
