He said on Twitter it was extremely disrespectful for fans to show up at his house and said it made him feel really unsafe in his own home.
It left him shaken; he later tweeted he was finding it hard to concentrate.
YouTube stars often see their homes being bombarded with teenage fans. Both Logan and Jake Paul have spoken about their house being surrounded by fans before.
James Charles also claimed he had to wait a long time for the police to arrive.
Newsbeat has contacted the LA police department and is waiting for a response.
Some on Twitter pointed out that being a well-known celebrity would always invite attention from fans.
Your frustration is completely understandable but don’t forget who got you to where you are. It’s those same people who will keep you going or ruin you. You have them to thank for where you’re living and what you’re driving. It comes with the territory kid.
