Charles’ video was his take on the “I’m Busy” challenge, for which TikTokers FaceTime their friends and then tell them they’re too busy to talk. Naturally, this sequence of events left many of Charles’ contacts confused, and one person was even downright annoyed.
The first person Charles calls for the “I’m Busy” challenge is momager Kris Jenner.
“Hey mama, I’m actually busy right now, can I call you back a little bit later?” he asks her.
Jenner just stares at him confused, and ostensibly irked.
“What? … You’re busy?”
“Yeah. I’m busy being famous,” Charles says jokingly in response. “I’ll have to call you back. Bye.”
The beauty guru then rings Lil Nas X, Madison Beer, Bebe Rexha, JoJo Siwa and Iggy Azalea, and they’re all good sports about the whole thing. When Charles finally calls another KarJenner, though — Kim Kardashian-West — she doesn’t even give him a chance to say hi, because she’s used to his games.
“What TikTok scam are you doing right now?” Kardashian-West asks him.
“You’re so annoying!” Charles responds in a fit of laughter.
In the comments, most people commented on Jenner’s response, noting that she was “pissed off” and that Charles had guts for pulling a prank on her.
“I hope Kris Jenner blocked you after this,” one person said.
“I PANICKED WHEN I SAW KRIS,” another added.
“Imagine telling Kris Jenner ‘I’m busy being famous,'” a third wrote.
Hopefully Jenner — and everyone else — knows that it’s all in good fun — especially since the KarJenner family has been known to prank their friends every once in a while.
