In the post James says,
I wasn’t going to say anything or address this issue but um, I feel like I have to now because people are thinking that James R. put his hand on a female. I would never place my hand on a female. You know at the end of the day she may think she’s a dude or act like a dude or think she’s a dude but the reality is that she’s a female and when we were shooting this she was mouthing off already and she was already salty about the situation. I don’t know what it was or why she was feeling some type of way but I called her out of her name and that was because she was already getting disrespectful with her mouth and that’s where it ended at. She of course got mad and came from behind security guards and she pushed off my sleeves. I didn’t touch the girl. I wouldn’t touch the girl. Even if she acts like she wants to be tough or all that extra s–t, I’m not that type of dude. But one thing for sure, don’t touch me and that’s why I said don’t touch my jacket and that’s really what happened.
He ends the video with a wink and accompanied it with a caption explaining he would never do such a thing because he has witnessed domestic violence in his upbringing. He wrote,
