James Charles loses millions of followers.
This is the second time the beauty vlogger has reached this milestone.
After hitting the 16 million figure earlier this year, Charles lost more than two million subscribers in the wake of the Westbrook feud.
In her since-deleted video, “BYE SISTER…”, Westbrook accused Charles of trying to manipulate straight men into sexual acts.
She also called him out for promoting Sugar Bear Hair Care, a competitor to her own brand, Halo Beauty.
In response, Charles uploaded a video called “No More Lies,” in which he shared his side of the story.
The pair drew a line under their feud after Westbrook publicly apologised to Charles.
Since uploading the video, Charles’ subscriber count has been steadily increasing.
He is now on track to surpass his initial peak subscriber base.

The YouTuber reached 16 million subscribers after uploading a video of himself dying his hair platinum blonde.
The video has racked up more than seven million views in just two days.
Charles teased the video with a tweet saying he had done something “crazy impulsive”.
The ambiguous tweet led many fans to speculate that the video would be an unexpected follow-up to the Tati Westbrook drama.
But Charles accidentally spoilt the surprise when he posted a video to his Stories by mistake.
