Hi all, I paid the server bill for the month so the site can be archived, sorry for the mess, didn't realize there'd be such an uproar. The site's in read-only mode. Happy archiving. Here's a link to a user-made PULL discord server: https://discord.gg/vZFEm75
Suddenly those knee high boots at the beach makes more sense. Kenna's top one priority wasn't to have fun at the beach with her family, nor was it too look fashionable or wear clothes she finds comfortable... it was just to make sure she didn't get tan like her ~black emoji family~. And even then, with Kenk looking the most pale in her family photos, she still finds her skin too "dark" and "unaesthetic" to be posted online in its natural state.
(Nitpick; her outfit reminded me of a beekeeper costume)
God she's just so trashy now. Even people who still support her are saying they're unfollowing because they're embarrassed about her pictures showing up on their feeds - wouldn't have been a problem if Vidiot had just made a SePArAte aCcouNt like everyone has told her from day 1 of this fiasco. She is literally losing the people who s t i l l support her. How can Vimbecill not see that as a sign that she's doing something wrong??
Still doing obejctively bad looks for her greasy pedo fans. "Styling" is so bad and random, what's with the ugly grandma glasses and and long sleeved black polo shirt? Is it supposed to be "smexy old librarian granny who just shaved their private parts for the first time" or something? But more importantly "my health is getting better" lmao sure, and that's why you're claiming you're gonna be locked up in a mental hospital for a month.
Really? Again?? "give me ideas please" Hasn't she already asked this and received hundreds of suggestions about this in the past year? And how does she expect to create consistent YouTube videos when she's too uninspired to even think of things to make herself??
I see her posing is still objectively terrible. She hasn't said anything about "going to the mental hospital" on Instagram yet, wonder if that's because she doesn't want to admit to the greater public that she is indeed not yaaas-queeningly the happiest she's ever been...
Ok but for real how is she always bragging about both being lazy and spoiled, and that her (proven to be a 2 timing cheater) boyfriend just jumps at the opportunity to go out without her?? It's not a good look for either of them.
Same, I literally used to think "oh I guess I can't be targeted by pedophiles anymore since I basically have a grown up adult body now" when I was 14. Like I knew I was a kid and not an adult, but teens are so sexualized I still thought it would be "normal" if a grown up man thought 14 year olds were sexy and "adult". Not until I was older and could see other 14 year olds from an older perspective did I realize how absolutely tiny they really were. Heck, even at like 16 you think 14 year olds look like babies! And then at 18 a 16 year old looks like a baby too... It's all so sick.
Just our totally not asian fetishist aroace kween who doesn't understand romance at all and doesn't even get crushes on people thirsting over a half Japanese guy, nothing to see here (Probably a bit nitpick but still)
I feel like my friend is low-key suicide baiting me into spending time with/on him because he's lonely and desperately wants a gf and I happen to be female. And I can't call him out when he's in the middle of being really depressed and suicidal because I know it would make him feel even worse... and he's constantly depressed. I'm a hardcore introvert, spending time with people is at best very draining for me. Spending time with someone who is in deep emotional need when I'm in no way equipped to handle it is extremely exhausting. But if I don't interact with him for my own mental health he might literally kill himself. Ain't that just great.
I have yet to see silver/grey hair that doesn't massively age the person. Like don't get me wrong, sometimes it's a good look - but the person always looks older. I've seen influencers do it "perfectly" but even in the very best cases when I compare it to their previous hair colours they just look like they aged 10 years in a day. And that's with all the filters, posing, lights and photoshopping.
If she's going to a mental hospital then that's probably for the best, but...
This proves that when she said "I'm the happiest I've ever been" she either lied, or was on one of her (alleged) "bipolar highs". Lying and promoting the idea that sex work was her "one fix solution" to all of her mental problems - to her audience of mostly young girls and kids - is just so nasty.
I feel like this is more aimed at Shane Dawson kind of big creators who really were seen as a god who could do no wrong, yet it turns out they're kinda shitty and all that. And "don't see them as role models" is technically good advice to the followers, but as a public figure you just inherently become a role model and that can't be helped, and I feel like saying they're NOT role models is just excusing their shitty behaviour and letting them get away with it. And that's how it comes across when a creator themselves like Vina posts this... "pls guys don't hold me responsible for my actions and words" Even though she has the ability to not tell us things, to hide as much as she wants about her life... but chooses to post all that she does on her own. We can literally only judge her from what she shares to us herself. (and to be honest, I've not seen any die hard Mikan fans who put her on a "goddess" level so it comes off even more as Mikan trying to avoid criticism) And the thing is regular people are held responsible for their own actions too. Regular people can't be dicks at work or they might get fired and lose their livelihood. People working in retail have to deal with shitty customers all the time, yet they can not yell back or treat the customer badly because of it. And regular people sharing something bad on social media to their small group of friends? Will still probably get called out by said friends. Not that hard of a concept to get really.
I totally forgot she said that! Yeah you're right, that seems to directly contradict what she says now.
To be fair I can see her mean it as "I can see what this particular filter looks like in the app so I know what it looks like and I want it for my video" for this particular instance. But then she says it's a recurring thing because of her "detrimental level of perfectionism", how it has made her "hate" making youtube videos, and that she can "never" create the image she has in mind - so she's clearly not talking about just this one video filter problem. She is implying she always has a strong specific image that she wants to create, and not being able to make it exactly how she imagines it is the problem. That's... just clearly not aphantasia??
I swear any time Kenna reads about a new "quirky trait" she goes "omg thats literally me!!!" and convinces herself she actually has it.
I agree, and it might be a bit nitpicky but given that poetry is her "thing" you'd expect her to do better. The way she writes is so... pretentious. She uses "big" words to feel smart, but it fails to actually communicate efficiently and it just proves she really isn't that great with words after all, you know?
I do see some of your points and there are definitely people who are overly-critical at times, but a lot of the criticism is also warranted.
People aren't complaining because she "moved in with a guy", it's more that the guy in question has been proven to be a liar, a cheater and a gaslighter. And when the guys ex warned her, Vina publically shamed her and called her a liar, despite there even being proof. And the two moved in after less than 2 months of dating, at a time when Vina might get kicked out of the country soon for not having a visa. Not only that, she has no education or job, her entire life now depends on this proven gaslighting cheater boyfriend. Some people are "complaining" because they're legit worried about her safety.
She also definitely did set herself up to be a role-model. She even does these "older sister talk" videos, and that is her making herself a form of "role-model" for younger girls. She was also obviously very proud over studying at Bunka and not being like the other weebs who go to Japan without a plan. She also sees youtube/being an influencer as her job - that makes her even more of a role-model. It's literally an influencers job to influence people (be it to buy X products, or to live a certain lifestyle).
