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 was thinking this recently because Joanna Ceddia (spelling may be off?) bleached her hair and then got fixed, and suddenly out of nowhere another YouTuber (I don't remember her name but she is pretty popular I think?) improperly bleaches her hair almost right after..? And he reacted to it too...
True Sadly even when patrons report stuff, if the person is popular Patreon doesn't usually take accounts down and even reinstates them anyway: like people used to report Momokun, I don't remember the exact issue though, and Jenna Lynn Meowri (I may have spelled it wrong) both still have Patreons in spite of reports. Patreon seems a bit like how Instagram is (or used to be?) when it comes to taking action on popular accounts. (Hopefully if this continues they do take action against her though.)
**TINFOIL THEORY** Just a thought I had: What if she's getting plastic surgery so she can look like her edits and makes her comeback on Instagram + YouTube (since she'll be able to film videos with her "new face", and will look the same as on her Instagram?) hence the break? This is only a tinfoil though, and I'm not sure of it at all because: 1. Why would she even do that instead of just continuing to edit? You could argue that she did it so she can go to meet and greets but she's still (if I remember right) quite taller than she portrays/makes it seem so how would that part work? 2. She seems like she just gave up, even before her Instagram got deleted 3. She could still post old pictures in the meantime, and I think she would if she even wanted to continue down this path. She wouldn't need to wait until she has healed to make a new Instagram (which, thank goodness she hasn't, I'm glad I don't have to see "Belle Delphine" every 10 seconds) 4. She's only been gone like a week. Depending on when/if she returns (hopefully she doesn't) it's probably not enough time to heal especially considering she'd need to get quite a bit done to look even remotely like her edits irl. Again, just a thought. I know it doesn't hold much weight but I had to get it out of my mind.
It's possible she does Even if not due to her diagnosis she still might not be able to tell how extreme her editing is, a lot of people when they edit their faces for too long for a long time, sometimes they think they actually look like that.
Sort of off topic but I find it sort of... ironic, I guess? That one of the things she mentioned is not understanding things when she's constantly going after her followers for not understanding what she said. But maybe it was a way to hide it? Idk. I'm not saying that I'm denying her diagnoses though I just thought that bit was a bit ironic (for lack of a better term) Didn't she used to work there though, so she'd go alone more often? (I think she said she was a mascot but I'm not sure.)
I know people have said this before but in NO way do her depression or anxiety excuse her from being called out/excuse any of her actions. She should not put herself into drama if she can't handle being called out (rightfully) especially considering she used to be a member of a gossip forum where she did basically the exact same thing, but to others. If her depression or anxiety are so bad that someone holding a mirror to her is triggering it then WHY is she on the internet behaving the way she does? She needs to stay out of drama, or ACTUALLY get off of the internet and not just for 15 minutes, for a good month or maybe even permanently. (Or both.)
I'm really happy for her and her recovery.:) I am a bit worried though based on Jaclynn's video, if she doesn't have contact with her anymore, part of me is worried about if she relapses, because then who will convince her to get help if the people who did initially are no longer there? But hopefully if that happens she'll be in a place where she can make the decision to get help on her own. (**There is no shame in relapsing and getting help again.**) Also I agree that the thread name should change to just Eugenia Cooney. EDIT: She uploaded a new video
