Many people are using the hashtag to make fun of this being the “277382828th time” that James Charles has been canceled and how he’s “officially the 1st person to be cancelled in 2 different decades and 2 consecutive years.”

Others are using the hashtag to post stan memes.

While this is the first false n-word related controversy for an online creator in 2020, it’s unlikely to be the last if 2019 was anything to go by.

On Twitch, several creators drew controversies after being accused of saying the n-word. League of Legends streamer TF Blade was wrongly accused of saying the n-word and suspended when he actually said “idiots.” Viperous was also wrongly suspended and then later reinstated after Twitch staff thought she said the n-word when she actually said “nerd.”
