James, despite all of his controversies, maintains a loyal fan base who he calls “Sisters” through various social media channels. James has acquired over 25 million subscribers on his youtube channel, and has also created his own clothing brand called “Sisters Apparel” and makeup line collaboration with Morphe makeup.


I’ve compiled a list of all the controversial situations that James has been a part of (or started) since 2017, beginning with the most recent one.



Fake pregnancy photoshoot

James posted a picture on Instagram, where he has almost 27 million followers, of a fake maternity shoot where he posed with a very realistic pregnancy belly. The photoshoot was to promote his new YouTube that was being released titled “24 Hours Being PREGNANT!!.”
