James Charles-Tati Drama was a YouTube campaign between James Charles and Tati for the most losing subscribed channel on YouTube and first to 3 million subs.

On May 18, 2019, Charles made a second, 41-minute, video addressing the comments made by Westbrook, entitled “No More Lies”.[1][2] It presented evidence appearing to refute many of Westbrook's accusations and led to renewed support for Charles and criticism towards Westbrook. Soon after its posting, Charles regained a million subscribers and Westbrook lost two hundred thousand.[3][4] Westbrook later removed the “Bye Sister” video from her YouTube channel.[5] The saga sparked analysis relating to internet cancel culture, the alleged toxicity of YouTube's beauty community, stereotypes of gay men being predatory and profits made from online 'drama'.[6][7][8]
