why does J* even have to make a video about this? this isnt even about him? he didnt even have to be involved in any of this but he dragged himself into it WILLINGLY. honestly if he makes a video, i doubt anyone will care much. most people fucking hate him for being racist and downright malicious. those texts he sent to james were scary and i'd honestly be worried for my safety after someone like that was going after my friends and family after nothing was even remotely said about J*....
also James showed receipts and proof in his video of the conversations that went down and Tati didn't. Tati didnt show anything, she didn't prove anything, she didn't give us anything backed by evidence. She made that video clearly out of an emotional place and while I don't think she meant for it to turn into a shitstorm, people are quick to take her side over James just cause they have a personal vendetta against him. Tati showed NO proof of any of the things she claimed but James spent 40 mins going over most of the claims and accusations made about it.
I'm done following this drama. They all need to move on. J* needs to go back to his dark lair and be evil somewhere else and Tati and James need to just split as friends and handle the rest privately. Tati can cry all she wants and claim she didnt want this to turn into bullying but shes still friends with THE biggest bullies in the beauty community.
i wont lie, that video was a breath of fresh air compared to her normal videos. the camera quality literally adds so much warmth and color to her bland ass lol. her foundation is still too light as always tho.
good on her for admitting her hair is damaged (tho i dont really know why she was so adamant about denying that for literally years lol) and also i thought the hairstyles looked nice? every hair style video for short hair is pretty much the same shit so i think she did some unique stuff for once.
i can see her gaining subs if she continues to post content similar to this and consistently going forward. guess we shall see.
im literally shocked at people saying hes a "danger to society" (jstar's words lol) and that hes a sexual predator. what he did was stupid and definitely not ok but he didnt abuse anyone or rape anyone. i'd say it was sexual harassment. he had a type and he got hurt and acted irrationally when those boys rejected him. he was hot-headed (he always has been and its always landed him in trouble) but that in no-way justifies the sexual predator accusations...
it was wrong but mislabeling something so seriously will make people not take actual real sexual predators seriously. hes stupid and needs a reality check and to grow up but being labeled a "danger to society" by a known racist is literally... something else.
just because she tried to educate him doesnt mean her putting him on blast to her 6mil followers was justified. no "mother figure" does this. if she truly cared about him, she should have just unfriended and disassociated from him without a video just like other beauty gurus and other famous adults have been able to do. she wanted the attention and she wanted to damage his career and i dont believe she didnt know this would blow up lol. there really is absolutely no need for her to publicly shame him (especially when she knew james just had a huge moment at the met gala and she also isnt perfect and is friends with plenty of other people who are equally horrible *cough cough jeffree*). this seems like a PR stunt. she promoted her vitamins in the video and didnt say anything publicly until it harmed her brand. theyre both trash but this isnt what a "mother" would do lol. ive seen friendships in high school dissolve and be less messy and dramatic than this lol.
Edit: just to say im not siding with either. i think they both need to reflect and grow. these friendships are so insanely shallow.
im so fucking sick of her hauls and lookbooks of cheap, poorly-made, UGLY, chemical-smelly clothes from yesstyle. theyre the most uninteresting, boring videos i've ever seen. she has more than enough money to support brands and influence others to support brands that are globally sustainable. hell, she fucking lives in tokyo, home of MANY MANY MANY recycled/upcycled/thrift shops. she has the money, she has the resources, she has access to literally everything to be a better person for the environment and she literally doesnt give two shits. she makes up excuse after excuse ("its too hard", "i didn't know," etc) and expects everyone to educate her ass but refuses to lift a finger and do a quick google search herself. when people offer advice, she snaps and bites back like what the fuck does this child want? she wants to live in her own little fantasy world where she thinks saying "good vibes" and putting a rainbow emoji at the end of shitty clapback is making the world a better place. shes such a preachy asshole for someone who literally doesnt do jack shit.
how can she ask people to guide her and influence her and inspire her to be better for the earth when she has the power to do the same for others but literally chooses to NEVER use it for good? i dont give a shit about her shenanigans usually but this is just such "holier than thou" preachy bullshit lol.
couldnt even finish this one. also couldnt finish her backpack video. honestly all her videos with her assistants where shes just laughing manically like a middle school girl at a slumber party are hard to watch and relate to. theyre telling inside jokes and laughing about things that the audience literally has no idea whats going on. or to be honest, theyre laughing about things that literally arent funny? like wearing a big backpack is really not that hilarious. she talked seriously about her grandpa then it cut straight to her cackling with her bought gal pals. clicked off because i just felt annoyed by the loudness and lack of structure to the vlog.
not to whiteknight but she just started learning japanese and shes on the slow-paced course. this is only her third month (almost her fourth) being here so expecting her to walk in and land a part-time job is ridiculous. its not "beneath her" its just not plausible lol.
Also her japanese is beginner, that doesnt mean its "crap." if you've lived here for multiple years and claim to study hard and then speak and its incomprehensible, then yeah, i could justify the harsh comment but we've barely heard her say any words and she literally just started lol.
also saying you want to figure out where she lives is creepy. no one deserves to have some random internet person trying to figure out where they live.
she could get away with long sleeves and sweaters in california because its very dry there but it will be fun to see if she tries to pull that off during the extremely wet and HUMID summers in japan lol.
its not really about being mature, she has bpd and she's definitely having a manic episode. at this point, it honestly sounds like clinging onto this hikikomori trend going on thats been displayed cutely in anime but in reality it will just make her suffer more. she needs proper medical help and medication. shes become a danger to herself and honestly should probably be checked-in to get help because at this rate it just seems like shes shutting off any interaction with anyone
her youtube channel has been hovering at the same amount of subs basically since her first thread. her channel, persona, and AUDIENCE were built around bohemian fast fashion, "buddhism" and good vibes, poetry, vegetarianism, minimalism, painting/diys, and cafes/coffee.
while other youtubers are churning out videos and growing exponentially in subs, kenna has morphed into a materialistic weeb living in japan who has plucked all her eyebrows out, was caught as a plagiarizer, a bully, and now shes literally not pursuing or promoting any of her old/new passions other than learning hiragana for 4 months while eating pancakes every day. theres nothing even remotely left of kenna's old channel (aka the stuff people used to like and watch) or old kenna (aka a person people actually were interested in)
she used to have a "unique" image but now shes just a drop in the ocean of weeb vloggers...
