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 agree, but let's not forget that Kenna herself has regularly stated that the YouTube is her job and she monetized her apology video because "paycheck to paycheck" and gotta to survive yadda yadda. The problem is more that she's not honest about basically anything. Tbh I couldn't care less if she just admitted that she doesn't post much cause it's just a hobby and she doesn't wanna take it too seriously, but she doesn't. She pays lip service to YouTube being an important part of her life and "gonna set an upload schedule", etc etc and then turns around and does none of that while also saying she wants to budget and needs money etc.
so it's just like... How are we supposed to believe her words when her actions speak way louder? And why does she act all superior on stuff and call us antis when we point this shit out when it's her own actions that's the root of it?
sorry I have a feeling this makes no sense but like... ???
she has yet to learn that saying you're doing something isn't the same as actually doing something. everything about Kenna's like is just geared to her IG, even down to her makeup which looks ridiculous in any form other than through a filter. all the "work" she does is the same, she puts all of the effort into the appearance of doing things and none into the actual doing of the thing. also am I wrong or do I remember her saying on at least one occasion that she was "working hard on editing" or "spent all night editing" or something and then it turned out her sister had edited the video in question for her? i mean what did she do, sit there and watch anime/block people on insta while sis edited her clips for her?
currently planning a wedding, can confirm every conversation is "hey what do you like for the decor?" "idk whatever you want". Basically the only thing my fiance cares about is the food, so I don't think there is anything to read into with that at all.
I totally loved in the first wedding dress video he was like "this is what I had in my head", I thought that was really sweet and that's the kind of reaction I would want too.
yeah if I was one of her friends who regularly put up with her crap (who knows how much moaning about "antis" she does in person if it's like this on IG stories) and saw that I'd be like "aight fine" and cut her out...
yeah they don't look anything like her original natural curls, well some of the further back ones maybe but she definitely had to put effort into the ones framing her face. I really hope for her that her curl pattern does come back I really thought the platinum blonde style she had before Japan last year was one of the worst cause you could see how damaged the hair was and it was so limp and looked awful on her. but also I don't think using heat to try to fake-it-til-you-make-it is really going to help with that, girl needs to leave her hair alone except maybe for some good treatments/oils, AFAIK it's the only way, and even that can only do so much before you just have to accept it and cut out the damage when it's gone too far.
At first I was like "I don't know if I believe this, it seems like she is acting and speaking differently almost as if to "sell" this" but tbh I have basically no understanding of asperger's/ASD, my partner was also diagnosed this at some point but it basically barely affects him now, like he used to have a very difficult time as a teenager but now he holds down a job and you would never guess if you didn't know so
not gonna touch any of this with a ten-foot pole tbh. I hope maybe if this is the case then Kenna will get the support and understanding of herself that she needs to be more functional. What she DOESN'T need to do is decide that suddenly she is an expert about it and condescend to everyone about it like she did with buddhism etc...
She just wants people to think she is doing cool stuff in Japan when really she is just eating junk food and watching anime as always. It's not worth the effort to her to actually go somewhere and do the stuff, unless it's incredibly easy to get to and she can take pics of herself (or have someone take pics of her) there.
Crawled out of my hole to ask when the fuck Kenna is going to grow up and realise that making passive-aggressive instastories about shit people say in her comments / on this forum makes her look immature and insecure AF?
ooooh, Kennaaaa: "Kettle? This is pot. Black, over." I mean she has some good points somewhere, deep down, if you look hard enough (beyond the layers of hypocrisy and weird priorities) but she always lacks nuance? She's the kind of person that should not be making sweeping statements online because it always just sounds like she said the first thing that came to mind and didn't think about nuance, consequences, interpretation... yeah...
Is it just me or is this kinda dumb? Like she went through and hid all this stuff, probably thinking that it would be better for her "rebranding" but then I guess she realised that she was still getting comments about it and people calling her out for it so now what? I guess she brought this stuff back cause she'd rather be getting views on it or something? And now she wants to go back to boho Kenna I guess having more videos up from when she was in that phase before is better? Idk I don't understand any of her "business" decisions but I guess it proves that the "cozykitsune" rebranding was pointless, maybe she will go back to simply_kenna or just using her name instead?
yeah I agree here honestly. I realise this isn't totally relevant to Kenna's situation (because she doesn't seem to be aspiring as an actual photographer or anything, she just took an ~aesthetic~ snap) and I'm not excusing her for being shitty about stuff in general but come on, you don't shame a photographer for taking a picture of something even if it's a photo of something terrible... interesting photos and photography can be good even if the subject isn't "acceptable". In general, trying to be super woke by criticising people for taking pictures of stuff is dumb. I get that she's a big influencer and if she posts something like that it might make people see it and think it looks cool and start tying shit to trees themselves but she did the PSA saying "hey I took a pic cause it looked cool but I didn't actually put it there and like maybe don't actually do this". I think that was fine... people bitching about it more than necessary and provoking her into saying dumb shit about "locals" or whatever is just dragging it out for the sake of it and making a big deal out of Kenna just taking a dumb snapshot.
