YouTube's Biggest Scandals

Just one day prior, the viral star shared that he was undergoing his first surgery and asked his fans to wish him luck beforehand. After receiving inquiries about his first surgery from his fanbase, Charles joked that he was getting an "ass reduction," but then found himself at the center of plastic surgery rumors. 

Addressing the rumors, he tweeted, "it has come to my attention that people actually believed that my surgery yesterday was an ass reduction.... baby... i would never get rid of this thicker than a snicker juicy caboose."  

Giving fans a little more context on his recent procedures, Charles shared, "I got two this week, neither had to do with my ass lmaoo but they're both life changing and things I've needed to do for a long time." 

Earlier this month, the Instant Influencer star revealed that he had been suffering from some discomfort in his ears from his sinuses, teasing that a tonsillectomy procedure might be imminent.

"I went to the doctor today to get my ear looked at since it's been plugged for a week now.." he said. "he had me open my mouth to look at my sinuses and the first thing he said was ‘holy shit why do you still have your tonsils? they're huge' tonsillectomy here we come."

In another tweet, he added, "I've been wanting [his tonsils] removed too!!!! I've went to several doctors in the past that refused to do it just because it's such an awful recovery but I'm really excited."
