We've heard you loud and clear - negative reputation is back. Remember that it's still against the rules to complain about being downvoted - if you think someone's mass-downvoting posts or otherwise abusing the reputation system, DM a mod and we will take care of it.
Personally, I have a MUCH easier time with reading what people say, then coming up with a good response, as opposed to hearing. 99% of the time, I’m able to understand what I’m being told if it’s through writing, and also express *myself* better through writing! My struggles with auditory processing have nothing to do with with my reading ability lol. That’s just me, though!
Ok, so I normally don’t watch her stuff any more and just kind of casually follow this forum nowadays, but at the behest of a friend of mine, I watched the video, and the following is the opinion of someone that both made the video calling out Kenna back in January and happens to be on the Autism spectrum themselves (and am officially diagnosed by a professional, not self-diagnosed): I will say, I did doubt that she was autistic when people would bring it up to me, mostly because people would take her statement about “having no empathy” and attribute that to autism, and autistic people don’t *lack* empathy, they just show it differently, so it really just annoyed me that people linked those two together. Of course, I couldn’t ever say, “Nah, she’s not autistic,” because no one knows what’s going inside her head, so who am I to diagnose her with something like that, y’know? After watching the video, I do appreciate that she went to a medical professional to get an official diagnosis as opposed to just labeling herself, which many tend to do without fully understanding what autism is. I completely relate to the struggle of feeling like something’s wrong with you, or that you’re “broken” in some way, and wanting to find out why. I could also relate to certain things she said she struggled with specifically, like the sensitivity, stimming, obsession with certain topics, etc. Also, now that she has revealed that she is officially diagnosed, I *personally* don’t see her using it as some sort of aesthetic, which a lot of people in her comments are claiming that she is trying to do. As of yet, she hasn’t used it as some sort of excuse to be a jerk to someone (which, believe me, I’ve seen people do) or just as what I would consider an “excuse” in general (except for the references to the art scandals, maybe?). Of course, if she were to do that in the future, that would be a whole other issue, but as of right now, she hasn’t given me a reason to think she would do so. At the end of the day, I’m still not personally a fan of her content, her attitude toward certain things, or how she’s treated her fanbase on several occasions (basically, many things she’s chosen to put on the internet, not necessarily her inner personality), however I do respect the fact that she talked about it, which, as I know from experience, is extremely difficult to do. I hope that this diagnosis helps her and others to better understand some of her past actions, and lead to her making some more well-informed decisions in the future.
I think the issue is that, even though she says she doesn’t practice witchcraft, it’s very easy for someone that’s not so familiar with her to assume that she is. Looking at the comments of her picture, there’s so many people that are talking about how they’re green witches/wiccan/whatever and they practice witchcraft and seem to think that she does as well. Whether or not she intended it to be, it’s misleading for more than just a couple people.
I’m sure she’s had a few new followers, but the amount of people unfollowing overpowers that it seems. Also, correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t it look like she bought followers at one point? Instagram could be deleting them, as well as getting rid of inactive followers. Like I said, though, I could be wrong!
I’ve never even heard of these people before this thread, but TBH as a Christian AND a LGBT+ ally/believer in equality/someone that wants to only treat people in my daily life with respect and kindness (Jesus Himself was not one to only hang out with “certain” people that believed only in what he taught, as he also associated with prostitutes, lepers, etc. so why should I act any differently?) these people absolutely disgust me. Some things to point out that they can’t seem to grasp: 1) Sin is equal in God’s eyes. You’re not somehow worse than a murderer or whatever when you’re gay. That’s absolutely ridiculous. 2) BEING GAY IN ITSELF IS NOT A SIN. IT SERIOUSLY PISSES ME OFF WHEN OTHER CHRISTIANS SAY IT IS BC IT’S NOT! There are debates on whether or not the act of homosexuality/being gay is sinful or not, because that’s what’s actually talked about in the Bible (although not only are most of the passages based on this from Paul, who had...well, a lot of opinions, but Jesus himself, as far as I can recall, never even brought up the subject himself). Ugh it just seriously irritates me when people try to act like one sin is this horrible thing and if you do it you’re EVIL but another is totally fine. We’ve all sinned. No one is better than anyone else!! We should “love thy neighbor”...last I checked there isn’t a verse anywhere in the Bible that says, “Be a terrible person to anyone that doesn’t believe what you believe...because THAT’LL convert ‘em! Fear mongering! Yay!”
lol did this girl expect nothing but praise for her drama channel? with both that type of channel AND the “against-the-majority” opinions she had she shouldn’t have been surprised to get any negativity at all lol. well, i guess it’s as the saying goes: if u can’t handle the heat, get out of the kitchen.
her video is so hypocritical it’s almost hilarious lol. “bellexelle promoted her video on PULL just for views” uh well yeah bc it was made by multiple ppl in PULL, also u’ve promoted ur own videos here?? “common nobody made a video abt kenna” ok? “ugh i hate people using someone’s name for the clout” bro ur...doing the same thing. her own video probably didn’t do as well as some of the other ones against kenna and now she thinks that having the opposite opinion will make her video suddenly popular bc it’s “going against clout” but who knows tbh.
Lol so i watched that girl’s video and I wasn’t gonna give my 2 cents but then she brought up my own video (saying I made it just for clout) so now I feel obligated to say something For me personally, obviously u guys know I didn’t make the video for “easy views”...I made it for us since it had been a while since a good video talking about ALL of kenna’s issues, including more recent stuff post-apology, hadn’t been posted, and being a pretty active member of this forum I figured, y’know, it would be hella fun to make it. I honestly legitimately didn’t expect the video to blow up the way it did (I don’t even think it’s my best video tbh) and I’m seriously thankful but getting it to blow up wasn’t the point...the point was getting creative and making something all of us could enjoy and look back on, kinda like some past kenna videos. I even worked with several of y’all from this forum to make it so it probably wouldn’t have even been that good of a video without you guys 😄 tl;dr I didn’t expect/plan on the video to blow up and, no, I didn’t do it for the “clout” (and I get why people would think it but that wasn’t the intention) As for this girl, like many of u have said she’s really not acknowledging the arguments made in these kenna videos at all...like, yes, things from the past have been brought up...because she continues to pull the same crap. There’s a reason why certain YouTubers get talked about all the time and it’s not necessarily because of clout...they keep doing what ppl are calling them out for. Kenna, as we’ve seen in the last week alone, CONTINUES to be rude to her fans, lie/mess w the truth, even referred to buddhism again in a hypocritical/incorrect way (claiming buddhism taught her about being unmaterialistic after her camera broke (the camera story was odd too...) then immediately buying a new one the next day like lol what why even bring it up)... Also, I think this person’s a bit of a hypocrite, since obviously they know kenna’s trending rn...and they’re making a video defending her...interesting that she’s calling people out for making the videos for clout but she’s doing the same thing...but, I digress. Overall i think the maker of this video wanted her own attention and seems to have a biased view of PULL which is shaping her views on the whole situation. Very hypocritical tbh
lmao it amazes me when her fans try to defend her saying that she’s not rude to her fans, like geez louise. for real though...u would think that with all of these veeeery popular videos about her (more popular than her own content as of late) kenna would, idk, maybe sense a trend? that there’s a reason for it? maybe reevaluate how she talks to ppl online? i mean, ppl don’t “spill tea” for no reason...obviously she’s doing SOMETHING to piss off a lot of people. it’s honestly a shame that she’s so stuck in her delusions of being a *perfect kawaii queen* that she genuinely thinks her behavior is actually okay. i mean geez, this girl’s comment wasn’t even rude! there’s nothing wrong with someone pointing out an editing mistake! maybe, as many of yall have pointed out, kenna’s so used to how she looks in snow that she genuinely thinks that’s her unedited self...wild. (sorry for rambling i’m just...annoyed with how she responded to this girl. like...man, if i had as many followers as she did i’d be SO grateful, and to see her treating them like this...sad)
sorry to double post but WHY IS THIS GIRL APOLOGIZING SHE SHOULDNT HAVE TO APOLOGIZE WTF. THIS MAKES ME SO SAD BRO LIKE ITS NOT UR FAULT THAT KENNA GOT TRIGGERED OVER SOMETHING THAT SHE VERY OBVIOUSLY DOES UGH IM SO UPSET
Hey all. I wasn’t sure whether or not to post this in the main thread so i’m gonna post here for now and go from there... Basically, I’ve noticed that a lot, a LOT of people in the comments of the tea videos about Kenna have been debating whether or not she is on the autism spectrum or just flat out saying that she must be, due to her various, y’know, personality traits (lack of empathy/general uncaring attitude, obsession w Japan, etc.). Now, personally, this has been very frustrating and even saddening for me, as someone that is on the autism spectrum, mostly because I feel like people are just assuming that anyone with these negative traits must be autistic (even though 1. thats pretty inaccurate since, for example, autistic people dont LACK empathy, we just struggle with expressing it, 2. these traits apply to countless other issues (or might not, they can just be personality traits) and 3. not every autistic person is a bad/rude person). However, I’m obviously pretty biased with this whole thing, so I’m curious about what you all think. Do you think these claims are baseless or have some truth in them?
