Looks like James Charles is not ready to come out of the swamp of controversies he is currently surrounded by, yet. The beauty guru just celebrated his birthday and took to Instagram to post a photo of himself and his golden retriever thanking his fans for the love, support, and wishes. But not many were happy by this move of his. Most of the comments were negative, some even asking him to "go away" and "never come back". Amid grooming allegations and a lawsuit from his former producer, the beauty guru went on a social media break to "hold *himself* accountable", but it didn't last long. This wrong move has now made him seem ignorant and a publicity hound.
It's not like Charles hasn't accepted his mistakes. He even vanished from the internet after posting an apology video on YouTube in April. He went ahead to say that "he would take some time off to reflect" and returned briefly to discuss his ongoing lawsuit on May 11th. He posted a seven-minute video to his Twitter account, as they claimed his hiatus was short-lived.

As if that wasn't enough, the beauty guru posted a photo to his Instagram and it wasn't even related to his lawsuit. Just 13 days later, i.e., on May 24th, after his birthday, he took to Instagram to post a photo of himself and his dog wearing a party hat. He captioned the photo: "Just wanted to say hello and thank you so so much for the birthday wishes and love, it means a lot."

Amidst some of the birthday greetings, the comment section was filled with angry messages. One angry user even directly told him to "GO AWAY." Another user said: "Hold yourself accountable, please." "Don't ever come back. Never come back", said another infuriated follower. We do not know what his next move is going to be, but it looks like he must keep his words and lay low.
