Popular internet personality and professional make-up artist James Charles is currently facing the heat online, after old tweets of his recently resurfaced.

Of late, the 21-year old celebrity has been feuding with fellow internet personality Trisha Paytas, whom he recently called out for using the N-word.

However, his accusations have now come back to bite him as another TikToker recently called him out for his old tweets, which seemed to have a pronounced racist tone.

In his defense, he stated that he was 13 and 17 years of age when he made those comments and has taken accountability numerous times since then.

However, the TikToker didn't seem to buy into his reason and received support from Trisha Paytas, as the duo went on to admonish him for trying to use age as an excuse to make racist comments.

Adding further fuel to fire is the backlash from his recent comment on a TikToker's video, where he requested her "not to have children."

His comment was in response to her recent post, where she justifies her decision to not allow her son to wear a dress in her house until he is of age.
