Ten days ago, CoverGirl brand ambassador James Charles sent out an insensitive and racist tweet about Africa that had the internet on his but ass. After Twitter blew up, Charles sent out a flaky apology, while half of his “loyal” fans were declaring that would not be using Covergirl products anymore. Before his flight took off for the COUNTRY South Africa, he tweeted one more time explaining his statement was ignorant and he’s still learning.
Charles landed back in the US last night and immediately posted an acknowledgement of his mistake to his Instagram.
We’ll have to wait and see if Charles’s atonement is legit, only time can tell….
