James Charles shares his whereabouts as TikTok stars are criticised for travelling

James Charles is clarifying where he's spending New Year's Eve amid backlash against TikTok stars who have been travelling over the holidays. The beauty influencer took to his Instagram Story on Dec. 31 to show that he is currently located at his home in Los Angeles. This follows criticism on social media that some prominent TikTok personalities have been vacationing in the Bahamas as the coronavirus pandemic continues. "Waking up this morning in Los Angeles," James posted. "Just thought I'd let y'all know since some people seem to think I'm elsewhere lmfao." Similarly, YouTuber Thomas Petrou took to his channel to post footage from the Hype House in Los Angeles and cleared up any uncertainty about him and pals Mia Hayward, Alex Warren and Kouvr Annon. In the video, he used bags of sand to create a faux-tropical locale in their yard. According to photos and videos shared to social media, influencers who visited the Bahamas include Charli and Dixie D'Amelio, Noah Beck, Chase Hudson, Avani Gregg and Madi Monroe.
