YouTube Temporarily Demonetises Beauty Influencer James Charles

YouTube has suspended a popular influencer’s ability to make money from his videos after allegations emerged he had sent messages to boys under 18.

James Charles, who addressed the allegations in a video viewed 8.5 million times and titled ‘holding myself accountable, said he spoke with a few individuals who told him they were over 18.

In a statement by some press outlets, YouTube said it has temporarily removed Charles from its Partner Program – which is what YouTubers sign up to for the chance to make money.

At the same time, Charles posted a statement on Twitter saying he is taking time to “learn, grow, and listen” and confirmed he mutually agreed with Morphe to wind down the collaboration.
