Covergirl’s newest addition to the family, their male ambassador James Charles, has recently been under fire due to the offensive nature of tweets he had posted.

The tweet which read, “‘I can’t believe we’re going to Africa today omg what if we get Ebola?’ ‘James we’re fine we could’ve gotten it at Chipotle last year'” has since been deleted. Following the posting of his tweet, the 17-year-old received a large number of responses from his followers, condemning him for making such a comment when Ebola has not been an issue in Africa for over a year, in which Charles responded by blocking a number of the responders. In addition to the replies, outcries for a boycott of Covergirl began to form as well.

Since the tweeting incident, Covergirl took to Twitter to make a statement on the situation.

Charles has also tweeted a number of responses as well.

Do you think Charles should be able to keep his deal with Covergirl? Do you think Covergirl will be greatly impacted by his remarks?
