      Philip DeFranco As a gay man, it really upsets me how these people are calling James a sexual predator ‘cause none of what he did was sexual predation. What also bothers me is that I’m half way through your video and you haven’t mentioned anything about Tati BLATANTLY lying about the waiter...Tati said that James sought out that waiter and was being a predator and that it was disgusting...but the waiter himself said that HE sought out James, and the waiter even said that James ASKED him if he could kiss him! That’s not a sexual predator. Then there’s Jeffree Starr...why didn’t you bring up all of his past tweets about his predation of straight guys? Especially the one when Justin Bieber was underage and Jeffree tweeted that he wanted to know how hung Bieber is?!? And for the record, I used to be a legal assistant and people making these videos about James’ alleged behaviour...that’s just heresay. If his actions were sexual harassment, FILE A POLICE REPORT against him ‘cause if James did something illegal, he should be arrested. But odds are, what he did wasn’t sexual harassment and they know that it won’t stand up in court, and therefore aren’t calling the police. I’m with that Pewdipie guy, there’s something wrong with a 37-year old business woman making that childish video...she sounded like a scorned high school girl whose best friend didn’t vote for her for prom queen.

      Can you maybe do a video on the Tarte scandal?
      They named a pair of lashes in their latest collaboration “Kosovo” which symbolizes confrontation between two countries,terror and pain of the people of Kosovo.😨😨
      Really unprofessional,I’m totally disappointed. Check the comments on their latest ig posts for the collab.

    Why, yes, Alyssa Milano, witholding casual, free-wheeling sex is a very appropriate way to take control of your body and ward off unwanted pregnancy and the need for abortion!
    It's also the way to ward off unwanted advances and the need for a restraining order, every water within 150 feet of James Charles!

    "We'll stop having sex with men"
    In a monogomous country like America, this is only going to hurt the husband, who being a husband, is going to support you. This is a call to attack allies, how utterly daft.

  • JustPassingThrough

    Honestly, when I initially heard of the sex strike, I was all for it. But, as per usual, Phil managed to open up my perspective enough to understand the limited effectiveness of such a maneuver, and the potential collateral damage that might occur. I personally think Milano's motivations were well meaning, but not well thought out. Additionally, her reaction to being called out was certainly poor, but I can understand where she's coming from. Having said that, I fantasize on a daily basis about having five uninterrupted minutes in a room alone with the people responsible for these recent bans on abortions. I'd come out a criminal, but a happy one nonetheless...

  • JustPassingThrough
    JustPassingThrough 2 months ago

    I'm not currently super savvy on all the details regarding the James Charles situation. However, from what I've gleaned thus far, to me it does seem that Tati GROSSLY overreacted to the vitamin situation. It seems that her initial attack was intended NOT to have a discussion with James, but rather to deface his reputation. What followed after however, primarily regarding his alleged interactions with other non homosexual men, does seem damning, thereby validating the negative reception he has garnered. I however, am with Pewds on this one, in that I very much doubt Tati's motivations. If anyone has any additional perspectives or facts they think would help expand and solidify my position on this matter, I'd greatly appreciate it.

    Honestly, I think that if the beauty community just chilled and continued to make makeup videos, it wouldn’t have blown up like this and JC would’ve had more of a chance to talk it out with Tati.
    With that said, though, the tea videos are endlessly amusing in how petty some of the drama can be.

    I love you Phil and I only wanna see everything you do succeed... *ominous pause* BUT I feel like the beauty community is playing you. The channel shines such an unnecessary and undeserved spotlight on appalling, deceitful and overdramatic behaviour that it starts to legitimise it. I just feel with characters like these, we're edging closer and closer to realising a people of The Hunger Games' fictional District 1: The Capitol. A people so disconnected from reality because the rest of us stood back and let them legitimise themselves. Don't you feel a little responsible in contributing to that? I've watched you since I got a TVclip account in 2007 and I'm proud of who you've become and to say you've had an impact on my life would be an understatement, but sometimes I feel there *are* times to throw in your opinion and stress to a younger audience that this way of dealing with serious and professional circumstances is ill-advised.

    They are both Catty. I don’t think anyone is innocent here. How come no one is making a big deal out of how he is promoting something and saying that it is helping him and he is using it when he clearly didn’t use it. And for her she is calling all this out now only because he promote someone else product. If he think he is such a predator and is rude why enable it? Both fake both lie;

    all of this is about money. none of these people are victims or moral heroes. all the parties involved are morally bankrupt. stop pushing make up on children and adolescents. it's unethical and they do not need it. all are manipulative and pernicious. the only thing they feel bad about is losing revenues and not having the deviousness to be as ruthless as the other person. this is a vile class of role models to be presenting to impressionable children, or anyone for the matter, on a daily basis. relearn what ethics, priorities and humanity is. inexorable characters caught in the web of their of their own disgraceful values.

    Late to yrs on this, came bc I heard you support Tati, which now that I have watched like a million videos on that drama, I do as well. JC leaks decption like crazy in his videos, I think he would score fairly high on the soicopathy scale. As to Meliss A and the sex strike, it has worked in the past to stop wars. Is there a war on women in the US? Lol, hardly think so if you look at honor killings in fundamental Muslim countries. But there is a war against the unborn in the US now, with NY state saying that if a mother who Gives Birth suddenly says at that moment Oh I dont want the baby and has not arranged for an adoption, then hey the state can now just kill the baby! I mean there is no argument about whether this is a human being scientifcally on that one, the state of NY and I think also VA can kill yr baby after it is born and say that is an abortion, not murder. Yet in hospitals in both these states premature babies are being placed in incubators and given every possible medical treatment to keep them alive bc the parents want them. Let that sink in. The war on journalism is real, just look at the Assange case. Free him, and Carmody. Thx Philip!

    I 100% believe that people are born gay, but it really seems like gay people don't believe people are born straight. If you can't be "fixed" and become straight, then why are you trying to "fix" straight people in the same ways to become gay?

    First video of yours I've seen (came for a Tati James explanation). Great context, refreshing perspective, including on the sex strike (which i also think seems a bit pointless but did its job of stirring conversation. I wonder if Georgia will attract any praise for what I see as a strange and thoughtful compromise between pro life- protect the baby- and pro choice- if a woman discovers she is pregnant and doesn't want to be, she has a couple of weeks there to do so.) Good job.

    Sex Strike? BAD IDEA! What's that gonna change? Especially when you have those who agree with the bill also advocating it? Industry Strike? GOOD IDEA? Every state in the union runs on money. Whether it be from local businesses, tourism, gambling, and yes... movie and television shows filmed in the area. Hit 'em in the pockets, and maybe that will send a message and get the point across. They get desperate enough, they'll have to concede defeat OR try to compromise.

    He sounds like a sexual predator. He’s not exempt from being identified that way just because he’s gay and only 19. He’s a legal adult and straight or gay, male or female, a predator is still a predator.

    I don't know much about this stuff because I don't care about the beauty industry and only vaguely know who these people are through social media. But I watched James Charles latest video out of curiosity and I pretty much have this Tati person figured out. Every older gay guy knew someone like her. She surrounds herself with gay men. She calls them "her gays". But the reality is she is pretty homophobic. If you try to discuss anything personal about relationships or sex with her she makes a face and is all "Gay guys are gross". The fact that she tried to make some flirting or joking into some sort of "Predatory" "Metoo" moment is disgusting.

    I feel the strike is counter productive. It's only really effective at making your significant other agitated. It would be effective if there were swaths of men married to women that believed what they are striking against but most everyone striking is ineffective. If politicians wives, it more powerful individuals started doing this it really would change things. As it stands it's not very effective

    While I've always disliked James Charles and his brand stuff was shit (and he deserves the sub drop), I think it's worrying how little attention people are paying to every side of things on the predatory versus not debate. If both guys he reportedly preyed on said they were bicurious and leaned into the flirting/relationships, that's definitely not predatory behavior at all, that's just regular flirting. Maybe they discovered they weren't bi after all after the fact, but that would be like if I slept with a girl and later on she realised she was lesbian and then decided to press rape charges even though at the time she had been fine with it.
    I think James Charles is a slimy motherfucker, but I don't know if I'm quite ready to believe the big mainstream TVclip channels promoting the idea of him being predatory when there have been solid counterarguments against it.
    If it does get confirmed that he was definitely predatory, I'll be fuming, though, that's for sure. No TVclipr should ever get to exercise their fame to try and force others into liking them, regardless of orientation or gender.
    footnote, no I'm not gonna take Pewds or H3 as evidence; I don't find either to be proper sources and I think they're both pretty biased based on their past opinions. I'm operating evidence only here and so far I'm somewhere in the middle.
    James is still a little shithead, though.
    So is everyone else in the beauty community, frankly.
