YouTuber James Charles is facing backlash after he used a prosthetic baby bump to do a pregnancy photo shoot and feign carrying a baby for a day.
James Charles Faces Backlash For Pregnancy Photo Shoot With Prosthetic Bump. Global lockdowns and stay-at-home orders have prompted many of us to do things that are out of the ordinary, but while the rest of us have been playing games with toilet roll and trying to reach our step count in the living room, Charles has apparently been playing pregnant.
As it turned out, the image was a
promotion for his new video titled ’24 hours being pregnant’, in which he underwent a series of challenges and tasks to see if he was ‘strong enough to experience what it’s actually like being pregnant for 24 hours straight’.
As well as sparking a lot of confusion, Charles’ posts received backlash for his decision to feign pregnancy and for seemingly failing to appreciate that many people struggle throughout their lives to get pregnant.
To pretend to be pregnant when there is women who cannot. 😒😒

Twitter users expressed their disapproval of the video, with one person responding, ‘I’m sorry but James Charles and his team really filmed that sh*t, made those comments, and didn’t see anything wrong with it? How thirsty for clout can you be?! So gross, disrespectful, and insensitive. Also, I’m sure he’s at an age where he knows that pregnancy jokes aren’t ok.’ James Charles Faces Backlash For Pregnancy Photo Shoot With Prosthetic Bump
