The whole thing is so petty and unnecessary from both sides. I feel like Leo is okay with taking heat for Karen because he’s more removed and doesn’t make his living off of his face/his brand doesn’t matter as much.
She shouldn't act like it's all okay and that she's above it all when she's still willing to get down and dirty, talking shit about someone she was only friends with because she felt sorry for her (didn't want her to be a loner, didn't think anything would ever happen w the girl and her bf because she's unattractive, etc.) It's funny how condescending she comes across in this video, and how telling it is that she gives her friend so much shit when it doesn't seem like there was any reason for them to be friends with each other in the first place. And when she was saying that if her ex-friend looked like Lee Hyori, it would have made a difference? Get a goddamn grip, Joan. You don't look like Hyori either, and even if she was the hottest girl in the world, you wouldn't be like, "oh, it totally makes sense for my boyfriend to cheat on me with her." No way in hell lol
lol whatt... because no one has ever made their mind up about anything without either speeding up a video or not waiting for someone to finally make their point at the last minute. Joan and other influencers open themselves up to scrutiny. It comes with the territory. Her problem is that she says a lot without saying anything at all, which would be fine if she wasn’t so pedantic. But sure, hyperfocusing on the people who dislike you and your content instead of WHY they might not like it is reallyyyyy productive.
Are Eddie and Abe responding to that one comment only?? It isn’t even that bad, nor does it call Joan a hypocrite. Can you infer that? Sure, probably, but for such a mild comment to cause such a fuss among her defenders is very weird to me.
I don’t think she understands, and furthermore, I don’t think she WANTS to understand. She and some of her other friends seem to operate under the belief that ignorance is bliss, and as long as they don’t fully understand the problems that people ask them about, they’ll never have to actually confront them head on. Ignoring the question would have looked bad for her, but the way she answered isn’t it, either. The fact that comments like this could potentially seem in her eyes as a negative hater comment is pretty sad. Instead of talking to people of darker skin tone and different racial backgrounds how colorism and racism within the world of beauty and fashion negatively affect them through the normalization of a beauty standard that only recognizes fair skin as beautiful, she says some inane shit and hopes that people will forget about the issue and move on.
I could see her thinking that, but she already looks stupid to her followers because she never answers pertinent questions about products she's paid to promote. It doesn't make sense. She doesn't have to state anything that isn't in the product description (and if she's promoting it i'd assume they have some sort of script the company wants her to follow to an extent) and it's not like she'd be culpable to anything that happens if people don't read the description of the product. Yes, people can google the ingredients and descriptions themselves, but isn't her whole schtick dependent on her so-called knowledge of the effectiveness of the product she is promoting. I feel like I'm talking in circles here, but if she can't even answer a simple question, why did she even reply?
I feel like Jenn has no idea what clothes look like if they’re not skin tight and body con or ridiculously oversized. It’s kind of funny to me because her new clothes look almost like you thrifted them and they’re like the wrong size but it’s kind of cute bc you didn’t pay that much for whatever you’re wearing. But bad because they weren’t thrifted and actually clothes you bought like that. Idk what she’s trying to do. It’s just weird that she doesn’t seem to know what fitted and flattering clothes can look like.
Edward is such a moron in his new video with Joan. He keeps making comments about how people don’t like that he’s so real all the time and not afraid to sugarcoat things. And also goes in on “internet kids” for caring about brands having 50 shades of foundation (when they were talking about Korean brands having different shades of foundation available in SE Asian countries.) Both Joan and Eddy said that companies are “scared” of making certain shades available to buy because they would have to manufacture or order a large amount. Given that most of these brands are owned by huge companies I don’t actually think that the quantity would matter that much, and anyone who has been to SK knows how many of these stores exist just along one street in any major neighborhood, not to mention in surrounding countries and areas. Why pretend like everyone in SK can choose between two or three shades of foundation? Give me a break. Also, these gigantic companies don’t need idiots on the internet defending the integrity they don’t have, but naturally people like Edward are doing it for free (products.)
I watched the video and it was annoying, but I think she was trying to be shady—like making a face/disapproving sound because she thought the eyeshadows swatched badly. But her overuse of that sort of vocalization and also saying “yes” randomly is so confusing and irritating. she could have just said that the shadows weren’t pigmented in her swatches or patchy or not applying well with fingers instead of trying so hard to fit into a sassy or shady persona. It’s not like she’s normally eloquent or informative in her reviews for her just to give a look at the camera (a la the office) and her viewers will know exactly what she means. Also it’s not as if most Korean eyeshadow brands have super pigmented shadows either—it’s just not really a thing in Asian makeup. Rme
New video. Lots of brands, but not sure if she's sponsored by W Concept or if she's just flexing as usual lol. I thought her eyebrows looked weird but then I realized it's because I don't think I've ever really seen her without bangs.
Nudes are common everywhere esp since it’s easier than ever to take and send them. No need to be obtuse about it—just because you couldn’t fathom recording you and your partner or taking nudes doesn’t mean that Jenn is particularly stupid for being filmed by an ex. The fact that it’s revenge porn aside, I don’t see how her having a sex life is surprising or something worth disliking her for. I mean, she’s had boyfriends and is married now, what do people expect, for her and her partner to be braiding each other’s hair all day or what? I don’t get it.
TBH I hate that my brain works like this and I’ve somehow retained this piece of information from her videos, but IIRC she won some prize money when she was in college and used either all of it or almost all of it buying the Balenciaga city bag, because it was “an investment.” Lol
