  1. popsicle added a post in a topic Sharla in Japan   

    I saw the video she did with Chris and was curious what Sharla has been up to lately. The videos in Victoria/Vancouver were kind of nice again, but now this video for the crane game app...
    Normally,when Youtubers promote something/do sponsored segments or videos I don’t care too much and if they annoy me I just skip them. I prefer it if they choose products/companies that make sense for their channel (like the sponsored travel videos Sharla has done in Japan), but I get that Youtubers have to pay their bills, too. 
    But then she has things like this in between. A full video basically promoting gambling? I know there’s worse stuff happening on YouTube, but I still wish that Sharla would be more picky when it comes to whom or what she promotes.

    Honestly, that part got me really curious. I believe you are right and she just has a very different idea of what ‚support‘ means or wanted to play it up for the video. But after all the recent drama on YouTube my first thought was along the lines of ‚how many of those I’m not getting paid by company XY to do these videos were sponsored in some other form after all‘.

    Are you the same girl she had that fight on Twitter with? The writing style is so similar (including things like ‘sponcer’ etc.)
     
    Anyway, somehow that girl popped up in my recommendations with her new videos, I don’t think I had ever seen her before. And looking at her other content I know exactly why. I don’t even mind Archie that much, but her videos are already all over the place (imo) and he certainly doesn’t help. Especially, since she really reacts to everything he does and just leaves it in (I forgot who pointed that out here, but I really agree it’s rather her reactions than the bird that get annoying). 
    In regards to the new videos... They seem a bit rushed and I don’t see why she would compare them to Shane’s videos when they seem to lack any production value. I understand that posting them later would have given her a lot less attention and it makes sense to do them now, but that comparison didn’t do her any favour. It’s also not like Shane invented the whole thing. I still think she raises some good points, even if she might be exaggerating  when it comes to her extensive work experience. (I don’t believe you’d need a lot of experience to make some of those observations, though.)

    I don’t get what else you expect to find on a gossip site. Sure there’s some positive comments every now and then (and I find Terry’s thread really isn’t all that harsh), but that’s not why people are discussing anyone here. I don’t go to 4chan on the search for wholesome and family friendly content either. I’m sure if you want to see why people like his content there’s plenty to read in his comment section on YouTube. 
     
    Since it was brought up here I had a look at his stalker series and honestly I find it cringy af, too. Since he’s deviating from what actually happened why not make it a better story? As it is now it’s just generic and full of cliches, like poorly written fan fiction. That there’s enough people watching it really doesn’t mean a whole lot in terms of quality.
    Of course overall Terry seems pretty harmless and not all that offensive. Doesn’t mean people who say that they don’t enjoy his new content are wrong or don’t know what they’re talking about just because they didn’t watch every video since the creation of his channel.

    I won’t even pretend I completely understand it, as I am not vegan, but I assume the issue is that for many people veganism is more than just eating habits. I don’t really feel sorry for her when people seem to have a very close look at her eating habits.  She the one who chose that label (maybe for views who knows) and she must have known that people have very strong beliefs when it comes to this topic.

    I’m always surprised Kennie (and others like her) act like it’s the most horrible thing in the world to be a Koreaboo when this describes most of their fanbase. You’d think people would feel insulted but I guess they’re all the one fan that’s different and not ‘one of those kboos’.

    Hopefully. The “a little slower than usual” part made me laugh though. Made it sound like she’s been pumping out content recently.

    Couldn’t agree more. Is it an ego thing? From what I’ve seen so far no one seemed bothered by her trying to crowdfund the project at all, it was just the hashtag. Just admit it was the wrong choice to use it in your case - despite all the issues with your company - and move on. 
    At least they just seem to find fault with the part where she calls herself a starving artist and they’re not saying she shouldn’t call herself an artist at all lol. 
    Also Edward explaining the world of entertainment to the masses again was hilarious.

    Have to agree with you on that. Just that I don’t feel sorry for him either. It’s part of his “business” to know what can and what can’t be done in that time. And sometimes that means saying no to something. Even if you’re on friendly terms with that person or whatever. 
    I think you’re right about that. But I also felt that idea of some creators not getting a featured creator badge at vidcon (hence fans not being able to meet them) played into that statement as well. Wasn’t she banned from vidcon when she went without one of those badges last year, actually attracting a big crowd and ending up being a huge security risk?

    Even if it truly had been an accident and it wasn’t planned (who knows), why would she mention it if not for some desperate advertisement for her Patreon...
    I feel like instead of baiting kboos with the chance of seeing her husband in various states of undress (lol) she should give a regular upload schedule and interesting content that’s not a 10 minute advertisement a chance. But what do I know.

    Loved this explanation. ‘I think I look best when you can’t really see me’. 
    I’m not sure if it would bother me so much if it wasn’t for Joan trying to come across like this styling/fashion expert. Same for a lot of what she does actually. Her half-assed fitness routine that’s seemingly based on no knowledge of the topic at all, her skincare tips, etc.

    Now before all the drama I honestly didn’t even know these guys, but this is really like watching high school bullies with YouTube accounts.  (Just as an aside: how are they not embarrassed by having all this happening online? Even if they for some reason never see that they’re in the wrong, why do they also seem to have no sense of shame at all?)
    And while I kind wish someone ‘influential’ on YouTube would step in and sort of put them in their place, I don’t really see Phil doing that. It’s a YouTube story and fairly messy, with a few notable exceptions that doesn’t seem to be his thing atm.

    I’d honestly be more surprised if she wasn’t nice when meeting a fan. Not that hoodie wearing Sharla is super professional all the time, but it’s still her job. I’d guess most Youtubers you’d have to catch on a really bad day (or invade their privacy in some form) to actually get a bad reaction - no matter how selfish/rude/unfriendly they are in private.

    Have to agree with everyone saying he’s looking quite rough (even considering he might have jetlag and all that).

    Did she? I wouldn’t be surprised if it was both though. (Slight health issues and cosmetic reasons.)
    What I personally truly dislike about these videos -for all k-vloggers not just Sharla- is that they seem to pick their clinic based on who offers them a freebie rather than research. It’s a f-ing surgery. They seem to do more research on skincare and camera equipment than for this. No wonder some of them end up with ‘questionable’ results. Now even if they went and get some questionable things done to themselves I suppose you could argue it’s no one’s business really, but obviously to get them for free they have to turn the whole ordeal into some sort of an advertisement and that’s where I really see the problem.
