James Charles Denied Saying The N-Word In A Video Posted On His Instagram Story

It all started with a New Year’s Eve Instagram story video of James singing along to Saweetie’s “My Type“, which includes several uses of the n-word.

People immediately jumped on the video, with many saying they thought James himself said the n-word while singing along to the song.

But others defended him, saying the video showed him skipping over the word and pointing out that James wouldn’t have posted the video — and kept it up — if he actually did say it.

And James himself hopped onto Twitter before the whole thing could take off, replying to a fan who straight up asked him whether he had said the n-word.

“Turn up the volume & listen, I skip over it,” he wrote. “How stupid would I have to be to confidently record a video of me singing the n-word and still have it up the next morning?”

@ellej0hnson no? turn up the volume & listen, I skip over it. how stupid would I have to be to confidently record a video of me singing the n word and still have it up the next morning

So, James has had his say. And, mostly, people were wondering how many times we’ll have to live through a #JamesCharlesIsOverParty.
