Harry Jowsey has angered many of his LGBTQ+ fans after calling James Charles a homophobic slur. The reality TV star initially posted the clip from his podcast online, where he was shown called Charles the slur. However, he deleted it only minutes later.
The “Too Hot to Handle” star is already apologizing. The new episode of his ‘Tap In’ podcast recently dropped where after 8 minutes in, he talks about James Charles. He talks to someone who is present in the room about the advances that he claims Charles is making towards him.
James Charles is trying to f*** me … the makeup artist. You don’t know who he is? Just some f*****.
Harry revealed to TMZ that he has already had a personal conversation with the make-up savant. He added that he will be using this experience to learn about how certain terms carry a sensitive connotation. He also added that he supports the LGBTQ+ community.
I’m deeply embarrassed that I used such an offensive term so casually in conversation. I spoke with James already privately and I look forward to using this as a learning experience and not forgetting the weight that my words carry. I also want to sincerely apologize to the entire LGBTQ+ community who I wholeheartedly support.
The audio mistakenly made its way online. While the initial podcast episode was 40 minutes long, the reupload is only 27 minutes long. The comment is surprising from Harry given that he has declared himself an ally to the community, and even hooked up with Nikita Dragun.
