YouTube star James Charles has said he shared a nude photo with his millions of followers after hackers broke into his accounts.

The 20-year-old posted the bathroom selfie after he had his Twitter account hacked over the weekend.

The beauty Youtuber’s account was reportedly flooded with offensive tweets containing racist and homophobic slurs on Saturday.

One post allegedly threatened to leak nude photos from James’ personal iCloud account.

But after he took back control of the account, James responded by posting the photo so he couldn’t be threatened.

“Hi I got my account back. Just case I ever get hacked again, here’s the ONLY nude I’ve ever taken!” he tweeted.

“Can’t threaten me with it now. Get a life.”

When one of his followers said “no one asked” for his nude photo, James responded, “Yeah well i didn’t ask to have my security and privacy threatened either.

“So this is me taking back ownership of the situation, move on with your day.”

Replying to criticism about sharing the photo with his young fans, James also clapped back, “It’s a butt, get over it.”
