    • Be a moderator! & Reports Announcement   03/07/19

      We're aware that PULL needs more moderation and attention, so we're actively looking to expand our mod crew! If you're a regular user and intend to stay this way, then rest assured that we're working on improving PULL for you. In order to do this, we rely on user reports, so I'd like to take this opportunity to ask everyone to report posts you think break a rule, disrupt discussion or shouldn't be allowed.  There is absolutely no concern over getting too many reports - we get a handful of reports per week. More reports would be great because it helps us figure out how our users want the forum to be - leaving criticism in threads doesn't make it easy for mods to find your opinions. Furthermore, don't worry about being a "snitch" or too harsh - a report doesn't mean action will be taken, that's up to the mods. A report really only tells us to look at the comment and to gauge the community atmosphere. Often times, peer pressure or established community atmosphere will dictate the direction a thread takes, and criticizing certain posts can be uncomfortable or downright futile when the majority disagrees with your view. This leads to groupthink and degradation of thread quality because the loudest/most active users get their way. So reporting is a way to quickly and anonymously (to other users) give feedback to the moderators. If we don't get this feedback, we think everyone's happy and there's no need for change. So use this feature as much as you'd like to help shape PULL into a more constructive community again. If you'd like to be a moderator: Click here for the application form.

    Plus I think a lot of the people who followed her for specific things from her past (journaling, art, crafts, lifestyle tips, boho style, cruelty free, etc.) are finally realizing that that Kenna is never coming back. With every video those people's hopes are dashed and they have to eventually realize Kenna isn't--actually never was--the person they originally followed. When she realized she can't get away with just stealing other people's ideas, her channel became as bland and uninspired as white bread. (Even though all she would have to do is CREDIT the places she got ideas from and she never would have had to quit her crafty stuff...) 
    Now if she would play up the ~zomg JAPAN~ thing she would start increasing because she'd be able to appeal to another different fanbase. But instead she's sticking somewhere in the middle where there's nothing interesting to talk about and no videos worth watching.

    His comment section is quickly going south. Nearly all the top comments are negative at this point:
     

    If he thought it would just go away quickly if he ignored it and moved on with his life, it seems he was wrong.

    It gets sickening how so many of these influencers are desperate for attention so they constantly put themselves out there but the second they get attention they don't want (aka criticism) they lash out and act like everyone is infatuated with them and constantly up in their business. 
    Pick one: are you an online presence or a private person? You can't have both.

    Eh, didn't she recently also admit she doesn't give a single thought to ideas like shopping local etc. so it doesn't surprise me that she doesn't care about shopping ethically either (even though she of all people can afford to do so...). She's always supported and maintained her 'styles' through fast fashion, so I don't understand why her followers are suddenly expecting anything different. I mean, if it's not YesStyle it's Forever21 which is also atrocious.
    She's just a spoiled twat who has never cared where the things she consumes come from (not in terns of nation, culture, OR labor) as long as she gets them. It's already been pretty much established at this point the whole ~cruelty free~ thing was an act to go with her Buddhist persona. She just doesn't care about anything except herself and how others view her.

    The funny thing is, she's constantly asking for ideas for videos but even on PULL (den of the ~antis~) we're constantly burying her under suggestions on the millions of videos she could make that would improve her channel exponentially. And that's not even counting the many suggestions and requests from her own fans. But evidently she'd rather stubbornly watch her own channel slowly die than create content worth consuming.
    I have two tinfoil hat theories about why she keeps doing this:
    1) She doesn't actually want to create content, but wants to foster the image of creating content o keep her audience waiting. I'd put good money to bet she asks for 'opinions' on what to film and post much more often than she posts actual videos. If her fans think she has their interests in mind and that she's going to give them what they want eventually, they'll be less willing to abandon her as she continues to disappoint. She'll get to the good stuff eventually, right?? She's just busy right now!
    2) We've all seen how weirdly possessive Kenna is of the things she likes. I really wouldn't put it past her to be bizarrely possessive of her existence and experiences in Japan, and thus less willing to share them. By making posts like "where are the good, secluded hanami spots guyz??" (protip: they don't exist) even though 99.99% of her following is not in Japan, it functions as a reminder that she is in Japan guys. You aren't. Be jealous. This is even more obvious by how she seems to love when her WKs point out we're all just jealous antis because she's in Japan and 'we're not.' This is absurd, because all it takes to get to Japan is money. But I wouldn't put it past Kenna to think she somehow has a leg up just because she's in the land of the weebs, and she doesn't want to share.
    Other theories ofc are that she's just lazy. Or legitimately thinks a lot of Japanese people follow her. Or maybe she thinks someone will reach out and she'll be able to make a friend. Who knows. But these are just the vibes I get from her behavior in the three months she's been in Japan so far, and either way she's shooting herself in the foot.

    Pretty unfortunate that her fans continually have to walk on egg shells when they make even the smallest requests or recommendations. All of her fans are so thirsty for her to show them restaurants/stores that you can't just easily find in the U.S. but evidently Kenna is adamant that she will not step outside her comfort zone and share some new places.

     I can’t believe even her houseware isn’t from Japan lmao wtf go to the dollar store you damn flop.
    I wonder if this will be the video that finally kicks her below 900K followers. Almost every video she’s posted in Japan has caused her to bleed followers—around a thousand over a period of a few days, and that’s all she has left to loose before her “I have over 900,000 followers which means you HAVE to let me film in your store” business cards will be obsolete. I don’t think she’s been in the green on YouTube OR Instagram for the last couple months. Yikes, girl—maybe you should listen to what your followers want instead of mocking valid critiques in your comments section.

    I feel like Kenna has this obsession with looking like a ~local~ which, to her, seems to translate into acting almost completely uninterested in her surroundings and experiences. This is super dumb for two reasons:
    1. Being a J-vlogger is built around the idea of being excited about how fun and interesting Japan is. Why does she think people like Sharla, Taylor, Mimei, etc. were always so popular? They shared their experiences and acted like everything was always super new and interesting and fun (and in Sharla's case, sooooOOooOoo GOOD!!!). You aren't going to succeed as a ~foreigner abroad~ influencer if you don't actually make the country you're living in look exciting. 
    2. Even ~locals~ make a fun show of trying new things and going interesting places throughout Japan, even in the confines of Tokyo. You won't magically blend into the crowd more if you treat every experience as run-of-the-mill everyday things that just happen; there's such a thing as being a tourist in your own city by trying new things and stepping outside the box. You went to the world's biggest Starbucks. That should be an interesting experience, but she just turns it into an aesthetic. That is all this girl is good at.
    I feel like she originally saw Mikan and was like "this looks easy I'll just do the same thing she's doing a VOILA my channel will start growing again" but then she came to Japan and realized that this shit still requires work and effort (and as much as I don't like Mikan, you can see she works hard with her content) so now she's thinking of becoming a model like that will just be as easy as having her picture taken and being paid to be complimented and adored. But being a model is also intensely hard--getting your name out there, vying for recognition, getting jobs that pay worth a damn, also actually learning how to style and dress yourself and have good PR, etc. etc. Kenna needs to grow up and open her eyes and realize nothing in life is free or easy unless you're willing to work for it--especially once your trust fund runs out.

    Granted, right now is the break between school years in Japan so it's not surprising she's just partying every day. School should start up again in early April so we'll see if she changes her party schedule at all when that rolls around. 
    I'm honestly really interested to know what kind of grades she gets. I remember during her finals in early February she was constantly putting up Insta stories about how she didn't study for xyz test and she's fucked. Japanese schools can be pretty lax, but just how lax are they that you can never attend class, not study for your exam, not participate for any discussions, but still slip by with a passing grade? Not to mention, the person on Reddit iirc who said Bri was failed previously because of plagiarizing assignments. She seems like a pretty terrible student all around--it's sad to see her wasting not only her education but also her full-ride scholarship when much more deserving young people could be in her shoes and making the most of it.
    If she doesn't fail out of school, I could see her failing too many classes and having to take a fifth year in order to get her degree, at which point the school would definitely pull her scholarship. If they don't do so even before that happens.

    damn that's so #deep
    eta sudden realization that these are 'random metro thoughts' but she thought they were so good and deep that she hung onto the idea all day and then brought the idea all the way home with her to take this pic good lord that's pretentious.

    Awkward as hell that she’s still purposely trying to @ Mei. You’d think she’d have gotten the hint after her last stint in Japan that Mei wants nothing to do with her.

    idk if anyone watched her live the morning after with this new dude (Yuta) but here's a general overview so no one else feels compelled to waste 20 minutes of their life:
    He said something kind of unintelligible at the beginning that a lot of her viewers took as "we fucked" but she nor he never said explicitly. He seemed to be joking. Her friend also stayed the night. It was hard to tell if she and Yuta were lying in bed together or just on a couch. I don't know the point of the live because Bri was just sitting there looking uncomfortable while making a spectacle out of the shit Yuta said/did.Her chat kept asking if this guy was her "new guy" and she said he isn't. At one point someone in the chat said "damn how many boyfriends do you have?" and another person told them it's none of their business.Also someone asked Bri what time it was in JP and someone told them off because Bri "doesn't like when you ask the time."Bri's Japanese is pretty unfortunate. He asked her something at the beginning and she was like "SHIRAN" which he was taken aback by so she asked him how to say "I don't know" without it being rude. Which was just weird, because that's an incredibly elementary phrase. Someone called Yuta an "ikemen" in the chat and Bri read it to him and he was legitimately surprised that she could read it (it's in fucking katakana jfc) and said she told him the night before that she didn't know Japanese. So I guess it's safe to say she's successfully built an English bubble around herself in all regards and avoids speaking Japanese whenever possible.At another point he was trying to speak Spanish and Italian to Bri and she made fun of his pronunciation, saying she couldn't tell if he was speaking Japanese or something else at the time.Literally told him that someone from the chat was asking if he's gay, which he thankfully replied very politely that he's not. "Sorry."Someone in chat called him an "ikemen ojisan" (lmaooo) which he said hurt his feelings. He's 19. He asked early in the live if she's a youtuber, to which she said "yes" but refused to tell him her channel name. Near the end of the live he was able to track it down. She was super embarrassed when he started watching her videos, said "this is a hate crime" (could you not, Bri?) and that if he's going to watch her videos to do it later. He didn't even know her name. He asked if he should call her "Morena" or "Milky" and when she asked if he remembered her name he accidentally called her "burrito" while trying to get to something along the lines of "Britany."At one point her friend who had also stayed over said there was some questionable fluid all tracked into the carpeting. God only knows what that's in reference to.Anyway that's all I remember but it's still on her Instagram (for now) if anyone else has anything to add.

    I wonder if this means that one guy never texted her back. How many minutes has it been since you sent the text, Bri??
    good lord she has terrible taste

    Either her hand has six fingers, or is very poorly drawn and that finger at the end is supposed to be a thumb. Either way, yikes.
    Everything about it is intensely cringe. All of the people she's met around her basking in her glow, looking happy and at-peace due to her existence, while she sits in the middle like some supreme goddess. I know she likes to pull the ~dios~ thing out of her ass with the insinuation that all people are gods in their own right, but you can tell from this cover that she thinks she's the ultimate and supreme being, making other people's lives better with her mere presence. The rhetoric of this cover screams obnoxiously self-important yet awkwardly unskilled, though I guess that sums up her book perfectly so. 🤷🏻‍♀️
