Controversies

James Charles and Slazo

In June 2019, James Charles was accused of being predatory to straight men by Tati Westbrook. At the time of James' video, "Tati" still being available, there was not enough information about the situation, but due to the allegations, ImAllexx and many other YouTubers decided to side with Tati, not realizing they didn't have his side of the story. In his video, "My Experiences With James Charles," he claimed that there was a lot of "evidence" that proved that he was guilty of it. A week later, he made a video defending James Charles called "Defending James Charles" after James' video, "No More Lies" came out of him debunking the allegations. However, this was never brought to light until June 19.

On June 19, 2019, Slazo's ex-girlfriend, Chey, came out to Tumblr and made a post, explaining that she had a relationship with Slazo, but the relationship was toxic including her claiming that Slazo was a rapist. Due to this allegation, YouTubers like ImAllexx, Kingani, and Weest came out for their support of Chey. However, when Slazo debunked these allegations and showed evidence that Chey's allegations were a lie, ImAllexx and many of his friends still sided with Chey and made various tweets, defending Chey and claiming Slazo was "manipulative"[1]. Many of the people later noticed he jumped into conclusions when he talked about James Charles, only fueling the fire ImAllexx had started.

This resulted in ImAllexx and his friends (including Chey) to get extreme backlash, with YouTubers such as LtCobra making a Twitter video calling out ImAllexx, stating for him to "take a big fat Fortnite L". The last tweet that he made about the situation was him defending himself from Keemstar, claiming "I have not called Slazo a rapist Keem and you full well know that I have not once referred to him as a rapist. Saying I have is simply untrue", ignoring the fact that he implied in his tweets that he thought Slazo was one.[2]

The drama surrounding him because more evident when the podcast series, Baited (featuring Keemstar, Colossal is Crazy and the return of Tommy C's SFTP) uploaded a podcast where all three hosts criticize ImAllexx for his manipulative behavior on YouTube, which lead Keemstar into becoming angry and venting his dislike for Alex on the podcast[3]. This also caused YouTuber Kavos to make a video calling out ImAllexx again, knowing that both had drama once before[4]. As of July 2019, ImAllexx has not made a video about the situation and has ignored the backlash surrounding him.
