I was surprised that Whitney didn't know "itadakimasu", especially since she's been to Japan before, but do you think every American or Brit (or foreigner who lives in the US or England!) knows the phrase "buen provecho"? I highly doubt it, even if they eat Spanish or Latin food regularly. They probably only know that phrase if they're actively interested in Latin culture or studying Spanish. I certainly don't think that every American, Brit or EFL student who doesn't know the phrase "buen provecho" is "so dumb it hurts" or whatever your phrase was. For that matter, do English people know how to say polite phrases in Welsh, Cornish or Irish? Does it mean they're dumb if they don't? I also wouldn't think a student of Russian is stupid if they don't know phrases in Kazakh or even Ukrainian, or a student of Arabic is stupid if they don't know phrases in Berber or Farsi, even though all those languages and cultures have significant influence on each other.
I didn't know about "iibe" until now, but yeah, please don't anyone post KJD there. She's annoying, mean-spirited, untalented and dumb, but it sounds like those guys are actual, evil Nazis basically. Nazis and evil ppl in general are, of course, also annoying, mean-spirited, untalented and dumb, among other things, but unless Kennie one day does something unbelievably horrible like ridiculing comfort women or suicide attempts, she doesn't belong there. Innocent until proven guilty and all that. I certainly believe in humanity enough to think she's just petty, confused and neurotic, not evil.
I don't know anything about makeup, but, you really think LaLa's makeup is worse than Kennie's? Because I always think LaLa looks very sexy and Kennie always looks . . . uh . . . unfortunate . . . As for Whitney, well, she's into the minimal-makeup look, and Megan's makeup seems okay, there's just a disturbing plastic surgery situation going on there. But as I said I really don't know much about makeup stuff. Also wanted to add to this thread that Disour's reply to Kennie's nonsense is hilarious and I hope someone copies it into her comments if her video ever does drop
Seeing Megan's old photos reminds me how it always makes me sad how much photoshop she puts on her pics. It was true of her old pics and it still is now, even after all the surgeries. Megan, you don't need to do that. It can enter the uncanny valley sometimes. Cher is cool though lol, if you want to look like her, more power to you. Chad Michaels better look out, you're coming for his gig!
JK is a textbook sociopath and extremely dangerous. He's sent rape threats to people now and he's probably sending death threats to other vloggers in the middle of this. But I have no idea why Peter Monn is dragging other vloggers into this and making everything worse. It is NOT their fault that this is happening and it is NOT their responsibility to get involved. JK is dangerous, I would stay away from him too if my face and info was on the internet!
How can someone who called her former friend a "pumba-looking bitch" and doxxed people think they have the right to tell us about mental health? How do you think that affected your former friends' mental health, Kennie? You're so compassionate, aren't you?
Not quite, she moved to Korea for the corporate job. I think the company might have been Samsung, but I'm not sure. She worked for a while at that company as some sort of engineer or programmer and then left and became a full-time YouTuber.
I know YouTubers make up stories all the time, but honestly I never doubt them when I say they have stalkers. There are so many messed-up people around, and I think YouTubers are extra-vulnerable to stalking. YouTubers are public figures somewhat, so it's really easy for a messed-up person to project fantasies on to them and become obsessed with them, but at the same time YouTubers aren't really celebrities. They seem more approachable and accessible, and they usually don't have money to pay for lots of bodyguards and cars with tinted windows and whatever else real celebrities have. And YouTubers usually give out a lot more personal information about where they live, what they do, their daily habits and etc. than, say, Mariah Carey or Aretha Franklin or someone like that ever would, and they interact with their audience way more, which can make you feel like you know them. All that is a perfect recipe for getting an obsessed stalker, unfortunately. So I always believe those stories.
That's so scary about the salons sneaking relaxer into their conditioners! Who would do such a thing? Putting chemicals in someone's hair without telling them? It's also strange because usually hairdressers don't give away treatments for free. And now they are giving them for free to people who don't want them? It's hard to wrap my head around it.
