Tati Westbrook has tweeted an official statement in regards to the recent drama she started with James Charles. She’s calling for an end to the feud and says she’s been in contact with JC through an intermediary and believes it’s time to put all of this to rest... For the sake of everyone and their own mental health. Read her full statement below.
[Text]I have been in contact with James Charles through an intermediary over the last week, and we believe that it is the best interest of our community, our viewers and our own mental health to put this matter to a rest.
For that reason, I will not be making any further public comments and I hope and pray that no one else will make anymore hurtful statements on my behalf. In my original video, I felt the need to publicly breakup with James with a warning call loud enough for him to hear. I was attempting to explain my upset and concerns so that everyone would understand my position and end the speculation that it was all over vitamins. Over the last eight years, I built my career based on honesty, integrity and trying my best to do what I thought was right. The toxicity and chaos that ensued over the last 10 days was absolutely not my goal, as it was a fight I was almost certain to lose.
Although I do not regret raising my concerns, I completely regret the way I went about saying them, I could have and should have found a better way. Even in this moment, I still have so many things I'd like to clear up, however the continued call for ‘receipts’ is nothing more than a call for never-ending bloodshed. As such, I'm setting aside my overwhelming need to be understood and will continue my conversations with everyone in private.
I hope that our community is somehow strengthened from all of this madness and that we will strive to hold ourselves and each other to a higher standard.
To my audience, I need you to know that I'm blessed to have your support and love making videos for you guys. I'm truly sorry for all of the hate it brought to our doorstep. I love you and look forward to returning to my regular content soon.
Note: Tati’s video that started it all titled “BYE SISTER” has not been deleted, it was simply “unlisted.” If you click here you’ll see the video is still available.
Thank you @jeffreestar & @glamlifeguru for your sentiments. I am on board to move on, will not speak about this further, but do hope to speak in the future when we’re all ready. This week was awful for all of us and I ask that the community focuses on positivity moving forward ❤️— James Charles (@jamescharles) May 20, 2019
