Recently, James Charles got a new puppy named "Theo" and while he is totally obsessed, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) were not very happy by Charles' decision. They called him out for buying a dog from a breeder and while it makes a valid point James Charles' fans are in no mood to take it. They gave it back to PETA and Twitter is flooded with reactions. James already had a cute dog called ‘Finn’ while he also bought Theo. James introduced Theo via a video on his YouTube channel that he captioned 'SURPRISE! We Got A New Puppy'. However, James happened to get Theo from a pet breeder and PETA called him out on Twitter for buying a dog from a breeder instead of adopting one.
However, what seemed like would cancel James Charles on Twitter had the opposite effect and his fans came out to support him instead. PETA wrote on the tweet: “Using a puppy for clout is anything but cute. Buying a dog when there are over 70 million homeless animals is just plain reckless.”

PETA also had attached a video without any trigger warning that many netizens made a note of. The video showed how dog breeders mutilate the puppies at an early and how they are tortured in the process. That so many celebrities buy animals and misuse them for the sake of clout. However, fans of James Charles were quick to support him while calling out PETA for isolating James Charles while so many other celebs do it too. Check tweet by one of the fans:
James Charles CANCELLED BY PETA. PETA claims James bought pet from breeder to “exploit for clout.” PETA claims James should have used privilege to adopt pet from shelter.
