Look everyone! It’s another privileged person getting a slap on the wrist for not only being ignorant, but racist too.

In October, when Cover Girl signed James Charles, the makeup brand’s first-ever male spokesperson, we were all here for it.

But now, those feelings have changed.

On Thursday, Charles made a stereotypical and ignorant comment on Twitter about Africa and Ebola.

And when we say ignorant, we mean the dude should have done his research before tweeting this:

Yeah, ouch.

What makes matters worse is our privileged teen must not have gotten the news that Ebola has been cleared from Africa ever since January of 2016.

But wait folks! It gets SO much better.

Mr. Charles suddenly had a change in heart and apologized for what he said saying that he takes full responsibility for his actions and that he recognizes his privilege.

He even corrected himself and said that Africa is a continent in another tweet!

Way to go(ogle) James!

Eventually, CoverGirl stepped in and tweeted to its followers that they don’t agree with James’ statement (shocker) and that they “…appreciate that he has issued an apology.”

Unfortunately for James, an apology isn’t going to make this all go away.

But hey, the kid still has his CG contract.

Talk about “recognizing your privilege,” huh Mr. Charles.

Check out what Twitter users have been saying about the CoverGirl spokesperson’s tweets below:

(When) Should CoverGirl terminate James’ contract? Let us know in the comments below!

Finally! Taraji P. Henson Confirms Relationship With NFL Baller Kelvin Hayden

Published

on

Taraji is finally letting the world know what it already knew – she’s in a relationship with NFL cornerback Kelvin Hayden. Henson dished the (cold) tea while on Essence’s Yes, Girl! podcast saying that the reason she kept it a secret was because she’s a private person.

“I’m not the type to blast my personal business. But, you know, I think that’s important for people to know. I’m happy. I’m very very happy. I just am,” the “Empire” actress shared.

Rumors first circulated in December 2015 about Henson and 34-year-old Hayden, who played for the Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts, after photos surfaced of the pair holding hands in Miami. Though Hayden has appeared on her Instagram feed, the Golden Globe winner never confirmed the intimate details until now.

“You know, we’ve been together for two years. No one would really know that because I don’t really blast my info like that. But I’m very happy,” she said.

Taraji girl we could tell. The Hidden Figures actress even broke out singing, “Finally! It has happened to me,”—quoting the CeCe Peniston‘s song “Finally.”

Henson also revealed the couple will be celebrating the holidays together with the new puppy Hayden gifted her with as an early Christmas present.

“Big #KBall with Lil squirt #KBall watching daddy brush his teeth! 😩😂😂😂,” she wrote, teasing a photo of her boo and new pup.

And speaking of Christmas, in case you missed it Taraji hosted her “White Hot Holidays” special on Fox Wednesday night. Peep the clips of Henson having some fun with her celebrity guests including Method Man, DJ Khaled, Neicy Nash, Salt-N-Pepa and The Ying Yang Twins.
