YouTuber Tati Westbrook is inching closer to James Charles’ subscriber count as she’s passed the 10 million mark.
It’s getting close.
The 37-year-old, who caused one of the biggest stirs in internet history when she uploaded her exposé video Bye Sister, has been experiencing a huge boost in subscribers, gaining millions in just days.
Over the weekend alone, the star gained a whopping 2.4 million, according to Social Blade, now sitting comfortably at more than 10.6 million.
Meanwhile, her former friend James has lost close to three million since the video was uploaded – dropping to less than 13.5 million after the 16 million he previously boasted.
Tati shocked viewers when she uploaded a video in which she claimed that James had ‘manipulated people’s sexuality.’
She said: ‘I have finally had enough.
‘The last phone conversation me and James Charles had, is that he said something about a situation that happened at my birthday in Seattle.’
She paused for a moment before adding: ‘Oh my God, you tried to trick a straight man into thinking he’s gay, yet again – and somehow you’re the victim?
‘You know it’s really disgusting to manipulate someone’s sexuality, especially when they are still emerging into adulthood and don’t have everything figured out.’
In response, James shared his own eight-minute video and apologised for his behaviour.
‘I owe everybody an explanation and I owe two people an apology. I’m sorry for everything that is going on everything and I’ve put you through over the past three weeks,’ he said.
‘I hate knowing that I disappointed not only [my fans], but two people that have been role models for me doing this.
‘What sucks the most is that I know there’s nothing I can say or do to ever earn that friendship or trust back but I don’t blame them for it,’ he added, referring to Tati and her husband James.
Since, Tati has urged her fans to reign in the hatred for James in a new video, saying: ‘I do really want the hate to stop I want the picking sides and the abusive memes and the language and all of that I really hope on both sides it can stop. That’s not why I made the video.
‘This was really a wake up call and me trying to reach someone I found completely unreachable.’
She added: ‘I don’t hate James Charles. I don’t want you guys hating on him.
‘I cant even go online right now, it’s painful to watch someone that you have cared about be dragged and to know that this all started because of me. And I don’t think anyone deserves that.’
