Who is simply_kenna?
Simply_kenna is a 22-year-old ”aesthetic”/beauty Youtuber and Instagrammer who is also a buddhist. She lives in southern California.
Why does she deserve to be in the ”Little Snowflakes” section?
The answer is that there are many reasons!
A while ago she did make two videos where she apologized for her shitty behavior. The first one was a desperate damage control attempt (which she has deleted from her channel now, but since then someone else reuploaded it):
Then she made a second one, one which was surprisingly sincere and she actually tried to apologize properly for all of the bad things she had done. Wow, progress!… Or so we thought. However, it only took a few weeks before she was back it again, hence the reason she's still such a popular topic to discuss here on PULL.Asexuality/Aromance
Kenna claims she is ”aro ace” or asexual and aromantic, meaning that she never feels sexually nor romantically attracted to anyone. She never misses a chance to flaunt it (note how she seems to have no idea what the ”let them eat cake” quote means – see the ”Poetry” section for more information):
...Or is she? A lot of the time she acts like she isn’t.
She ships herself with (exclusively) male characters (like Jack Frost) in a way that screams anything but ”aromantic”:Once she stated she was ”not going to stay single her whole life” despite already having come out as asexual (someone please correct me if i’m wrong but it’s still worth noting):Once she reblogged this (why would an aro ace person want to have sex?):She is a fujoshi and has even gone as far as shipping real people (See the ”Fetishizing gays/Fujoshi” section for more information)Somebody who claims they skate at the same place as her says she tried to flirt with their boyfriend (unconfirmed but still worth taking into consideration):As of the time I’m writing this summary (October 29th 2017) she has been crushing on a Disney employee for over two weeks straight:
Attacking other Youtubers/Instagrammers
Kenna has often accused other Youtubers and Instagrammers of ”copying” her aesthetic (Which is quite ironic. Why? Go to the ”Plagiarism” section to find out more) and sent her army of minions to harass them. Afterwards, she’s tried to defend herself by saying ”I can’t control my own fanbase”, despite the fact that she claims she wants to spread positivity. What a hypocrite!
Here are some notable examples:
Xoemiliap (Emilia Panesar):Lunestelle:
This is another thing that contradicts her claim about wanting to spread ”positivity”. She has a history of being passive aggressive and immature, even towards fans who aren’t even trying to be rude:
Kenna claims she’s a buddhist, however, a lot of things point to her only using the religion for her aesthetic:
– She used to own a decapitated Buddha head despite the fact that they’re considered HUGELY disrespectful in Buddhism. When somebody pointed that out to her she told them to ”get over it”:
She has used Sephora products despite the fact that they aren’t cruelty free (which, once again, should go against Buddhist teachings):Not exactly Buddhism related, but she didn’t know Indian people are Asian:Disney
Kenna LOVES Disney, to the point where she visits Disneyland practically every week (or at least on a regular basis).
Disney has a strict policy about visitors cosplaying and ”cosbonding” characters from their park. Yet she has broken that policy multiple times – despite the fact that she has worked there and thus should know the rules:Acts like a spoiled child and interacts with the workers for way too long, thus potentially causing other visitors to get frustrated – she seems to think her mere presence is a grace to Disneyland and the people working there (keep in mind that this is a 22 year old woman we’re talking about):
As mentioned earlier, Kenna is a fujoshi or a fan of yaoi (another reason why PULL doubts she actually is aro ace).
All of her same sex ships are male – she doesn’t seem to care about lesbian ships, despite the fact that she as an ace aro person shouldn’t have any gender oriented preferences (also, look at the hashtags in the first picture – does that look like something an asexual and aromantic person would write?):That being said, most people are okay with a non homosexual person being into gay ships as long as said ships stay fictional and you don’t start thinking fantasy equals reality (this is coming from a bisexual woman who is into both yaoi and yuri by the way). However, she doesn’t (or didn’t) limit her ships to the fictional realm – it didn’t take long before she crossed the line and started fetishizing real life gay couples by shipping two members from the k-pop band BTS together (the original video was deleted due to the backlash she received but it was re uploaded on Youtube): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZwTVe8o2sQ&feature=youtu.be&t=1m29sAfterwards she tried to defend herself and said there was nothing wrong with shipping real life gay ships and fetishizing gays:She has claimed (or rather agreed with someone who said that) ”M x M relationships feel more genuine”:(Yes, she says she has tons of straight and f x f ships as well, but that’s bullshit)
She’s been under fire for promoting a store called the gypsy fawn. ”Gypsy" is a racial slur for Romani people, so needless to say, a lot of people weren’t too happy about, and when they called her out for it, she tried to defend herself:
”I’m half Turkish!”
Kenna is half Turkish, and she likes to flaunt it and use it as a defense if people call her out for something, like cultural appropriation:
(I personally don’t believe in the concept of cultural appropriation, but it’s a lackluster defense nevertheless, especially considering that Kenna herself believes in it):
However, she seems to have very little contact with Turkey and is definitely not culturally Turkish, meaning that she probably just uses her ethnicity as an accessory:
A few months ago, Kenna got into k-pop, and it didn’t take long before she started acting like she had known about them since forever – despite the fact that she only was into one band (BTS) and only had known about them for a few days:
Here she acts like she's an expert and says the member Rap monster is underrated (despite the fact that he apparently is one of the most popular members):She even made a ”k-pop” Q & A (it’s the video where she said she shipped two BTS members and that was featured in the ”Fujoshi/Fetishizing gays” section):
Remember how I mentioned earlier that Kenna often had accused other Youtubers/Instagrammers of ”copying her”?
Guess what, before she was caught red handed, she used to plagiarize and steal art all the time!Another time she used an artist’s music without asking them for permission and then sent them a PM asking if they could whitelist her because she had 800K subs:Once she also plagiarized a poem:She tried to deny it for a long time (in fact, she still doesn't want to admit that she stole that song):Poetry
Despite having a literary knowledge limited to mainstream series like Harry Potter and manga, Kenna thinks her writing skills are so amazing that she needs to write poetry. And, to put it bluntly, her poems are pretentious dogshit:
She claims she’s working on a poetry book but she has yet to finish it (note that this picture was posted in March this year):She also likes to post pictured of quotes she likes but she doesn't actually understand the context (because, again, her literary knowledge is not particularly broad):Weeaboo
Last but not least, Kenna is a weeaboo, and almost seems to be proud of it:
She began ice skating because she wanted to be like Yuri Plisetsky from Yuri!! On Ice and not because she has a genuine interest in ice skating. All of her ice skating knowledge seems to come from the anime:She has compared not liking anime to racism:Sometimes she uses Japanese words in the middle of a sentence:Once she wanted to befriend a random girl who called her cute just because the girl was from Japan:She has even said Japanese people are much prettier than American people:TL;DR
Kenna is a snowflake because she claims to be aro ace despite often not acting like one, claims she wants to spread positivity but then responds aggressively and immaturely to criticism, claims she is buddhist but barely knows anything about the religion and mostly seems to use it for the aesthetic, likes to claim she’s an expert on something when she’s only known about it for a few days, only cares about her heritage whenever it fits her, is a weaboo and writes pretentious poetry. Before she made her apology video, she also used to attack other Youtubers/Instagrammers for copying her while simultaneously plagiarizing and stealing art from others, fetishize real life gay people, own decapitated Buddha heads despite being a Buddhist and use racial slurs.
