Shawn Mendes says he loves being thirsted after by gay YouTuber

Shawn Mendes has personally messaged out YouTuber James Charles, assuring him that not only is Mendes not bothered by Charles’ thirsty comments, he “loves them!”

The interaction came after a social media miscommunication — Twitter must have been in retrograde.

Initially, it looked like Mendes had shut down an Instagram live session after Charles posted: “can u juggle me like that”.

Mendes also reportedly spoke about Charles to someone backstage at a show, saying, ” that dude is ALWAYS commenting weird sh*t on my posts.”

But it turns out he… likes it?

After the “story” broke, Charles posted an apology (it’s not his first apology, btw):

“My comments on friend’s & boy’s content have always been light hearted & in a joking manner,” he wrote, adding, “I’ve been supporting @shawnmendes since vine & am a fan like anyone else, & would never want to make anyone uncomfortable. Im upset, embarrassed, and sorry if he felt sexually harassed.”

Mendes caught wind of the apology and set the record straight:

“Hey James! Sorry about all this, ive never said i dont like you or that you make me uncomfortable. Your comments actually make me laugh and i love them!” he wrote in a DM that was then tweeted by Charles.

So we guess the lesson here is to keep thirsting after Shawn Mendes? Does that sound right? Asking for a friend.
