The first male CoverGirl cover model is getting some heat for an Ebola tweet. 

James Charles of Bethlehem remarked in a Tweet Thursday that he can't believe he's going to Africa, “what if we get Ebola?” 

He's apologized several times, saying he's aware the tweet was offensive and degrading, but some are calling for him to be fired. 

CoverGirl tweeted that the seventeen year old's comments weren't appropriate but his apology was appreciated.
