CoverGirl’s first male spokesperson is under fire on Twitter for an offensive tweet about his school trip to Africa, mentioning the possibility of getting Ebola.


Last October, CoverGirl appointed the 17-year-old Instagram beauty guru James Charles last October as its first male spokesperson. He received a large amount of support from social media users, happy about the gender inclusivity in the beauty community. Charles is now at risk for losing that community of supporters after his tweet lead to Twitter users’ outrage.
