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.
I disagree that she can do this in seconds — Kenna, despite her personality, has a good eye for aesthetic. She probably spends a good bit of time setting up a good composition for a flat lay, and probably a good bit of time editing (no more than half an hour, though.) I feel like she could’ve done magazine or product photography if she wasn’t so lazy and unkind. Even if you think she’s talentless & uncreative, you cannot deny she has an appeal. She has a large following, that would’ve been a lot larger if she wasn’t such a shit person. She knows how to produce a marketable photo. If she was doing this on top of a full time job, I’d say it’s a good bit of work for a hobby, or if she was posting every day...but, she does probably, what? One photo a WEEK? That’s max, what, 1-2 hours? It’s really sad. She has absolutely no work ethic.
I meant her IG. She doesn’t post enough on YT for anyone to even remember to unsub, I think. Her numbers will probably always remain stable there. Most dead YTers keep their subscribers, but not their views, it seems.
Prediction: Kenna’s insta will be under 400k by the time the lipsticks launch in the “autumn”/probably August. My guess will be 395k or so. She’s currently losing about 1k followers a week, but I think that’ll slow down as it narrows to her more loyal fans, people who don’t care, old accounts, etc. When she does gain followers, it’s almost always in the fall, when people are more likely to follow aesthetic autumn accounts like hers, since that’s the style she seems most naturally good at producing. This will be a make or break moment for her. Either the lipstick launch goes well, she gets some beauty guru hype, and her account launches back above 400k and her reputation is improved, or it fails miserably, she loses more followers, she’s considered a peddler of low-quality products or scams, & her normal biggest growth times end up dumping her in the lower 300s by the end of 2020. And that’s the big fall from any prominence, and that’s not easy to recover from as an influencer. Of course, it could just be nothing really interesting, like her earring launch. But, I expect an autumn-themed makeup launch to be more exciting — after all, beauty gurus tend to be viscous types.
is the product released in the fall stock that’s been sitting around for a year, or is she using test batches? Because if so...I don’t know much about makeup production, but 16+ month old lipstick doesn’t sound that appealing to me lol
This reminds me: Has she ever talked about discrimination against autistic folks that isn’t centered around HER? Because, there are so, so many issues around the treatment of autistic children, how therapy affects “high-functioning” autistic people, etc. Everyone who I follow who is forward with their dx posts at least something against Autism Speaks. Kenna only talks about how hard it is for HER, but not even in a systematic oppression type way...more in a “my life is so hard, pity me because I want someone to take care of me! I don’t like my hair on my neck!” — no one ever bullied you, no one ever called you a r*tard, no lost job opportunities, struggles in the classroom, etc.?
She wants to have her cake and eat it, too. She wants to seem oppressed and vulnerable, but she doesn’t want to actually suffer. She’s LGBTQ+, but everyone is massively supportive of her and she doesn’t seemed to have ever faced any issue that an allosexual person wouldn’t have. She’s not white, but she’s white-passing and hides all her ethnic features. She’s not neurotypical, but her “meltdowns” and social problems are easily soothed, overlooked, and masked — she can travel solo to Japan without issue or fear, for God’s sake.
If she really wants to grow, she needs to quit social media, imo. It’s too much of an echo chamber and she has too much of a reputation that will follow her. It’s hard to change when everyone views you in the lens of how you used to act. It would be a lot easier offline, where you don’t have expectations weighed on you...also, it would probably be best for her career/future if she went silent and everyone forgot about her.
Unrelated: chiropractors are just uncertified PTs, and anyone who claims to do anything more than what a PT can do is a quack. I wish they weren’t accepted as actual medicine in the USA. There’s basically no evidence that it does more than what a good massage can, as in, if people claim it can cure your asthma, depression, etc...that’s a quack! Placebo affect.
this is honestly really sad. how can Kenna stand for any semblance of kindness when her fans keep doing shit like this, and she just ignores it...this is a teenager who made a critical comment. Kenna could’ve just deleted it and shot her a DM if it really upset her...

It’s not that hard to not be mean. ”I have never read this poem before, and the similarity is just by accident. Have a nice day :)” That’s all it takes. It’s not that hard. Kenna, if you read here...it doesn’t take that much effort to be more nice. Not fake nice, “that’s 100% okay!!!” when you’re transparently calling someone stupid, ignorant, and mean. Just be nice.
