Like a bad trainwreck, YouTube drama is something we admittedly can't keep our eyes off of, no matter how bad it is. This week's drama involving gay influencer James Charles is no exception.

In an epic, 43-minute video posted to YouTube, longtime makeup guru Tati Westbrook called out her fellow YouTube star for way too many things to keep track of, the likes of which including how uncomfortable she always felt over James' over-sexualized and well-documented thirst for straight men.

"It’s really disgusting to manipulate someone’s sexuality, especially when they are still emerging into adulthood, and don’t quite have everything figured out," she says around the 24-minute mark, specifically citing an instance that allegedly happened in Seattle on her birthday. "You are using your fame, your power, your money to play with people's emotions. You’re threatening to ruin them, you’re threatening to embarrass them and you’re doing that to have them behave sexually in your favor, even if they’re straight. And you know what? That’s not okay. That behavior is not okay."

Since James happens to be one of those YouTube personalities everyone loves to hate, the internet took particular joy in watching Tati spill all the tea:
