Hi Everyone! We've opened up an official discord. In order to join, you need to have posted at least 20 comments on PULL! This is to make sure we don't let in any flakes with ulterior motives. After joining, you will receive a DM with instructions on how to get verified! Also, your registration date needs to be earlier than December 2018 so that we don't get a ton of people signing up only to join the Discord but without actually contributing to PULL. Drop by and chat here: https://discord.gg/KDF2kt5 Also, we need to upgrade our server in the very near future. PULL grows bigger by the day (yay!) but to handle the load, we need upgrades. For less than the cost of what you spend on Netflix, we can continue to host your content. Whether it's $1 or $5 a month, all gifts are appreciated. Please consider giving here: https://www.patreon.com/PULL We've also added a gofundme link: https://www.gofundme.com/PULLnet Thank you for your continued love and support!
I can't say I'm surprised. She's been treating this entire thing like a game from the beginning and didn't take any safety precautions, like a prepaid phone number for her Patreon rewards. Add proudly pandering to a group of people notorious for doxing their objects of hate and/or desire and this is what happens. She knew it'd come to this, she tried to establish herself as a chan girl and must know that almost all of them have been identified and harassed into disappearing. She was just too lazy to work on making things more secure. This sounds like victim blaming, but it's hard to feel much pity when everyone has predicted this from the start and she's so savvy when it comes to her target audience. I feel sorry for her parents because this is most likely her family home in the pictures and I hope she takes this as a wakeup call and locks down her shit, changes her phone number(s), stops bringing her partners' legal names into it, and reads up on internet security.
In my opinion it doesn't matter at all whether or not Katerina is a flake or not. I'm only looking at what was exposed, because this is a Belle thread, and what she did was fucked up. The circumstances under which it was revealed don't change anything to me. She did what she did.
LMAO Playing the victim when caught doing something bad isn't a 300 IQ play, it's literally what little kids do. Feigning ignorance. I agree that it's not that deep, and that Katerina isn't the one who should be speaking out about this, but I'm honestly surprised by the whiteknighting. She was full-on intentionally scamming people and peddling nudes as a minor. That's not some small lie she got caught in, it could mean dire legal consequences for her and literal jail time for her customers and y'all are falling for her excuses while she's completely admitting that she did it out of greed. That guy had no leverage over her. Her inability to say "no" when presented with a get rich quick scheme does not equal manipulation. Being pushy does not equal manipulation. It was just a random stranger with no power over her whatsoever.
Do you mean the bathtub photo with her labia visible after upping the exposure? Again, she set herself up for that. It's not a leak if she posted it on her own snapchat. I can't feel bad for her for that. If I'm still not thinking of the right image then please clarify.
None of her nudes are leaked though. She doesn't pose nude. What's "leaked" is poorly photoshopped images of her snapchat lewds with other people's tits and ass pasted on, and it's not even convincing. It's just fap fodder and quite frankly she set herself up for that.
I don't think it's that black and white. Belle wasn't blackmailed into anything here, let's be real. She was offered a scam and went for it because she's naive and greedy, but she knew she was doing something both illegal (in more ways than one) and immoral. 17 year olds are naive but they're not downright incapable of rational thought. How would she have felt if someone were to sell her pictures? The fact that she's trying so damn hard to defend herself while still making up lies about Minty being okay with it tells enough. Since when are snowflakes being excused when it comes to copyright infringement, impersonation, scamming, lying, and producing fake child porn? (Buying nudes from a 17yo is illegal even if she pretends to be of age.) Isn't that the definition of a flake? She was 17, not 12. It doesn't matter whether or not Katerina posted it for the sake of drama, even if that was true, there would be nothing to post if Belle hadn't done all this nasty bullshit. I posted the screenshots of the buyer calling her fake photos out earlier in this thread and they were disregarded as made up, so I'm actually happy to see proof. Is that man gross? Yes. But Belle went for it enthusiastically because she smelled money. She wasn't tricked or blackmailed. She tried to leverage more money out of him ("make it 170") and even came up with ideas to trick her mother into allowing her to use her account all by herself ("I can tell her you're my friend irl")! Again, 17 is not 12, and now at 19 she still defends her actions strongly, playing the victim and acting like a baby who was unable to make decisions when she was already savvy enough to be taking sponsorships, having a large following, and almost a legal adult. Both can be at fault.

Wow, I really like watching Rachel and Jun casually while eating and never delved into their thread because all I knew was their Mira drama and they seemed low-key otherwise. I thought her nosejob was an improvement, but those lips definitely look like a downgrade. I hope they'll settle better when the swelling goes down, right now it looks pretty bad. I never thought she was model-pretty but still considered her really attractive. I wanted to take a screenshot where she doesn't look too awkward because I hate it when people use cherrypicked screenshots in the middle of speaking to prove how bad someone looks, but it's hard to even find a moment where she doesn't make a weird face. She looks (and sounds) uncomfortable and like she's either downtrodden or in pain.
She used her personal life to sell her art. Without her backstory, her art was generic. What drew people in was her openness, and she even wrote an autobiography that sold out. Also, nobody forced her to lie, manipulate and deceive her fans through countless fake accounts. She embraced PULL and had several accounts here, both official accounts as well as secret accounts used to trash other flakes and praise herself. Sometimes the artist cannot be separated from the art, and this is a prime example.
Thank you for sharing your perspective and your complicated feelings towards her.
