Zara Larsson has apologised to James Charles after calling him out for messaging her boyfriend.
The singer this week waded into the James Charles drama online by tweeting that he had sent her other half Brian Whittaker flirty DMs.
In a new statement, Zara said she didn’t expect what she said to “blow up” the way it did.
“I feel extra bad considering the fact that I later on corrected myself and took down my tweet after my boyfriend talked to me and showed me the DM,” she wrote on her Instagram story.
“It really wasn’t that bad. But obviously, since everybody loves some drama, no one really cared about me trying to explain how it really went down.”
She said she did think it was disrespectful that James had contacted Brian when he had a girlfriend and said she didn’t condone James’ behaviour towards straight men.
Zara also said that the hate towards James had been amplified because of homophobia.
“I don’t know you personally but the only thing I know is that Brian and I have absolutely nothing against you,” she continued.
“And whole heartily believe that one of the reasons this got way out of proportion is homophobia and the fact that this effected [sic] straight men.”
It came after James posted a new video in which he admitted the drama of the past two weeks had taken a toll on this mental health.
The 19-year-old was accused of “manipulating” men sexually and targeting straight men after falling out with fellow Youtube star Tati Westbrook.
In the video, called ‘No More Lies’, James branded Zara “hypocritical” as she had first met Brian by posting about him online.
The two eventually met up in real life and began dating.
