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.
We're talking about people going up to her booth in real life, pushing their opinions about her and her art in her face in a petty, passive aggressive manner, and trying to discourage people from buying her products. This whole thing in a situation she can't really escape. PULL has a rule not to contact the flakes, specifically for reasons like trying to provoke a reaction from them. The flakes here are not pressured to look at their thread and read anything that's written about them.
Noone is immune to criticism, extreme hate or bullying. Sure, some people can tolerate more, and keep their chill at least in front of their audience, but no public figure is unaffected by these things. I wouldn't even consider her opinions about BTS negative or controversial outside of rabid stan twitter, but even if they were, nothing justifies petty bullying. She chose to be a commentary youtuber, she's allowed to be one, she shouldn't have to worry about "playing it safe". It should be common decency to keep some boundaries and let these people live their personal lives, even if you disagree with their opinions or dislike them as a person. I'm actually glad that she's honest about these things, and shows how harmful this behaviour can be instead of just putting on a brave face and acting like it's a non-issue. Imagine all the young people watching her videos, thinking about making their own youtube channel or public instagram, isn't it beneficial to tell them about this aspect of being an influencer, and assure them that they're not alone and their feelings are valid?
To be fair many of these things are actually cheaper for her because she's an influencer, however small her following is. She gets the majority of her clothes from sponsorships (+ potential revenue from affiliate links and discount codes), Nalu does her hair for free as long as she gives them shoutouts etc. Also isn't eating out in Japan rather cheap? Would she actually save a considerable amount of money by cooking for herself? Maybe she could switch to conbini food and sell her clothes, but the latter would feel rather scammy considering that 1. just the shipping cost itself would already cover their actual value 2. she got them for free herself, so then people would complain about that, and rightfully so.
ETA: a loan sounds like the most obvious solution in her situation, but I wonder if it's even an option for her as a foreigner on a student visa (which already requires the applicant to prove they're able to cover their expenses during their stay - being in debt goes against this notion kinda heavily). And I don't know about Japan, but student loans are generally not really a thing when it comes to fashion schools. When she began her first year, there was this whole issue with her mom lending her money/using her mom's bank account to prove that she's eligible for a visa. And I believe she said very clearly in her video back then that she has no idea how to pay for her second year. Regarding Youtube, she already has a platform there, and it is more flexible than basically any other job a student her age and with her qualifications could do, so I can understand why she's so adamant about it. If Bunka is really that hard for her that she can't miss her lectures/workshops/whatever homework she has, then it's essentially a full-time job. She'd have to work on the weekends and way into the night whether she's self-employed or not. There's really no good answer here other than giving up Bunka for something easier or finding a sugar daddy.
Not to be an asshole, but this question has already been answered here several times. Instead of writing detailed explanations with screenshots (which is very nice of you guys, don't get me wrong), you could save yourself some time and just scroll up a tiny bit Sorry, but it's just a pet peeve of mine when people don't check if something has already been posted, especially when they necro a thread to comment redundant information
ok, but if she's there on a spouse visa doesn't that make her marriage look kinda sus in the eyes of an inspector? afaik Japan is pretty strict and conservative regarding these things (as in "why would a married woman work in adult entertainment") wouldn't they look into her marriage then, and possibly revoke her visa?
That makeup is all over my pinterest feed, but it's fine But the hair is a big hard nope I guess experimentation comes with inevitable misses, but she looks like she's having a midlife crisis. Hope she continues to branch out, and eventually develops a style that's more unique to her and well, palatable.
I don't care about Felix enough to read his thread, so could anyone briefly summarise the white supremacist thing? ETA: wasn't there something about her dad also saying white supremacist stuff? It could be the norm for her
