Zara Larsson Responds to James Charles After He Calls Out the 'Very Hypocritical' Way She Met Her Boyfriend

Zara Larsson is reacting to James Charles.

After Zara called out James for sending a flirty DM to her boyfriend Brian Whittaker amid accusations of predatory behavior from the 19-year-old vlogger, James responded with a video calling out Zara for the “very hypocritical” way she met her boyfriend.

If you didn’t know, Zara posted photos of Brian on Twitter in November 2015 and said, “Who are you where do you live how old are you why are you so fine how do you like your eggs cooked in the morning?” They eventually met up and started dating.

Zara has since responded to James in a statement on her social media on Sunday (May 19).

“When I wrote my tweet saying you hit up my boyfriend, I never in a million years expected it to blow up the way it did. I feel extra bad considering the fact that I later on corrected myself and took down my tweet after my boyfriend talked to me and showed me the DM. It really wasn’t that bad. But obviously, since everybody loves some drama, no one really cared about me trying to explain how it really went down,” she wrote.

“Of course you’re allowed to flirt with people online, like I did, and to call someone beautiful in the comments is only nice! No harm done. I do think it’s disrespectful though to try it with someone who is taken and I must admit I have a hard time believing you didn’t know that we were in a relationship since he posts about me.”

“What seems to be the thing here is that my boyfriend wasn’t the only one and that’s why I don’t condone that behavior. You have for example previously tweeted saying that straight men will be the death of you etc which is concerning considering the fact that they will never give consent since they don’t play for team D,” she added.

“I don’t know you personally but the only thing I know is that Brian and I have absolutely nothing against you. And whole heartily believe that one of the reasons this got way out of proportion is homophobia and the fact that this effected [sic] straight men.”

    This is too much now. He is entirely entitled to hit on whomever he wants whether they are straight or gay. He doesn’t need their “consent” to flirt with them. Adult males are not children and they can just say they’re not interested. And it doesn’t mean one of these straight guys wouldn’t go for it neither. You can’t assume you know anything about anyone’s sexuality just because they have a girlfriend.

    It doesn’t change the fact that flirting with a taken man is pretty trashy.

    Trashy for sure. But in her original post she didn’t say “you know this guy is taken” but “you know this guy is straight” as if a gay guy dm’ing a straight dude is some kind of sexual harassment.
