    I also got that exact feeling. Considering her hate-boner for the Overwatch community, I wouldn't be surprised that she is trying to imply that. Predators exist in every community and that's just a sad truth, but I'm honestly not surprised if Aria was planning on using other people's trauma for her own benefit.

    It's so funny to see Aria trying to convince herself and her followers that "Overwatch is stale and dead". We all know that you are only saying that because you can't deal with the fact that you've been kicked out of the whole community, everyone knows what a toxic bitch you really are now. Overwatch is till very much alive, Aria mad cause she bad

    OT cuz it's not about Poki, but god I hate destiny. He is one of the most hypocritical people on twitch and he is talking about racism when he literally called a black person "uncle tom" and blocked people for calling him out on using the N-word. I'm surprised that no one has made a thread on this guy cuz he is borderline defending pedophilia too.

    I don't think it should matter as to WHY Michelle was making the video, Kiki is still abusing the copyright system. I honestly can't believe that family is STILL trying to hide their fucking online footprint like that.

    Aria Rose / Saccharine Beats
    Aria Rose / DulcetRefrain
    Youtube (Main channel) //  Gaming channel // Instagram // Twitch // Soundcloud // Twitter // Website // CuriousCat

    Okay so this is the first time I'm making a thread, but I felt like this person deserves a thread on here. I am not the best at explaining things so hopefully the small "summary" is good enough.
    Background:
    Aria Rose is a Youtuber who mainly makes videos on Overwatch and has made music-related content in the past. Lately, she has started making videos calling out e-girls like Pokimane and Belle Delphine.
    The #ReworkMercy Movement Drama
    Was basically a response to the #DeleteBrig movement, which happened a few months priorAccording to her, she started it because she was not satisfied with Mercy's current abilities in the game and wanted them changed to make the character more enjoyable to play.Aria also discussed in a video that she thought that the #DeleteBrig movement was toxic, and thus wanted to create a non-toxic movement to change Mercy (which obviously ended up being just as toxic as #DeleteBrig)High-ranked Mercy mains and pro players reactions to the proposed rework ranged from ambivalent to negative, prompting her to create response videos that brought her more negative publicityWhen Niandra, a GM-Ranked/Top 500 Mercy player made a video discussing her opinions on the movement, Aria tweeted this response to it and blocked her:Ends up commanding her army of followers to brigade the official Overwatch Forums, flooding it with #ReworkMercy spamHer boyfriend apparently posted on the Overwatch Circle Jerk to try to White Knight her Informative video on the raid/brigade: Since the raid, she has deleted her social media and all videos pertaining to the #ReworkMercy movement on her channel.Other Problematic Stuff That Has Happened
    Has drama with the e-girl community, due to her making videos on Pokimane and Belle Delphine (This is what apparently led to her deleting her Twitter)Hypocritical-- preaches about how people should not be toxic and calls people like xQc, a pro Overwatch streamer out for being toxic, yet has been toxic about games on stream while playing OverwatchAlways tries to make herself look like the victim in situationsUses problematic language (not completely sure of the context, but regardless you shouldn't be using this kind of language because it's gross)Thinks it's okay to be "trans-racial," which could also mean that she doesn't think it's bad to yellow-face/black-face. People in her discord have also said (no context) that they think that ending racism would essentially be ending freedom of thought (???)Has her own PULL account, which also goes by the name DulcetRefrain (make what you want of this, we're all here too lol)Has publicly brought up her PULL thread, calling attention to it and still continues to use the site:Many thanks to this reddit post for some of the info & sourcesAnother reddit post on all of the dramaI really didn't think about this very much until she made a video (which seems to be deleted now) encouraging her fans to spam the official Overwatch forums about how Mercy needs a rework. This is what gave me a bad taste in my mouth, she did mention that people should bring proper criticism and not just spewing stuff. But it still feels bad that she is encouraging her movement to spam a forum just because of her opinions on a character.
    She is also very hypocritical, you can find more about that in the link below.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ZArqN3nEFE This video explains the #ReworkMercy movement and her hypocrisy pretty well.

    Can you show some receipts for some of this? I know you are just explaining stuff that most of us are already aware of, but some of the things you mentioned are things I've never seen PDP do, like the bodyshaming part. And the thing with his fans insulting his mother is also something I've never heard of, so if you do have screenshots or can link to somewhere that does then I would love to see it cuz thats fucked up.

    Lmao my reaction once I saw this.
    For those who have never played Overwatch, they have introduced a "workshop" feature so that you can basically mod the game (I think, I'm not good with explaining these things). Anyway, seems like with this feature you might be able to bring back Mercy's old ult, which is most likely why Aria suddenly decided to come back and make Overwatch videos.

  10. FlakeReview added a post in a topic Unpopular opinions   

    I don't think this is a really unpopular opinion, mostly a suggestion. But I really think we should make a separate category for community-threads (such as blackfishing, slavaboo etc). I feel like the threads talking about these communities rarely focus on few specific online personalities, and tbh it just doesn't fit in with a category of threads that are supposed to focus on individual online personalities. I know KF has a similar system and I just think it would be better to keep the community focused - threads in a separate category from the others.

  13. FlakeReview added a post in a topic Brittany Venti   

    heard about her from the pokimane video she made, all I know is that she is a titty streamer who has been banned from twitch multiple times (no clue why). Lots of people say she is just trolling. To be honest I can never tell when she is being serious or not, if it's all an act then she is good at acting ngl.
    She got arrested at some event. But I don't know the whole context behind everything. There's another video that is 1 hour long that might explain it but I don't have time to look through that rn so I leave you with this.

    What does this have to do with the topic? Did you even read Mikans response?

  15. FlakeReview added a post in a topic mikan.mandarin   

    Huge respects to Mikan for coming here and clearing things up. Once again, no one here is shaming you for it.
    Reading your response makes me realise that we are very similar, and I can understand that in a young age and stuck in a toxic enviroment can affect your mental health badly. I’m not good at coming up with good things to say, just know that you’re not alone.
    I know PULL may not have the best reputation, so I understand if it feels scary to come on here. But I think you ’re very brave, people here are very respectful once you get to know them.

  16. FlakeReview added a post in a topic mikan.mandarin   

    there's really nothing wrong with sex work and I can partly understand why Mikan didn't want to reveal it. Mikan seems like the type of person who wants to be seen as "wholesome" and "kawaii", and if her fans find out she used to do sex work, that image would be ruined.
    At the same time, it's disappointing to see that she wasn't being fully honest about how she saved up. She really built up this "hardworking girl" image. We don't know how much money she actually made tho.
    I also don't think we shouldn't remove the things you guys found. If Mikan is going to lie about all of this, then we're going to need those screenshots. PULL is an evidence based website after all. I say we should put it under a spoiler.

    @SEAL
    I see where you are coming from, PDP has a controversial history which has most likely attracted the wrong people. I already said before that I hope Felix will tone down on some of his edgy humour after this, and seeing that post is disappointing because I want to believe that his community is better than that. From what I've seen they are very respectful despite the edgy humour, and seeing that post is disappointing.

    The argument is getting way out of hand here. I think we can all agree on that PDP is not responsible nor has he encouraged this shit.
    You can have whatever opinions you want on his humour and his fanbase, but I can say as someone who’s been to his subreddit many times that the community is far from being any alt-right. You guys keep mentioning Shapiro as some form of evidence, when everyone knows that guy is a joke and no one takes him seriously.
    The shooter was motivated by 4chan and 8chan. That’s where he linked his stream and everything. He is using memes on purpose to make the media angry. Hate to say this but it’s disappointing to see you guys are falling for exactly what the shooter wanted.

  19. FlakeReview added a post in a topic Pewdiepie   

    I'm back after doing some thinking. I feel like I probably sounded like some huge WK earlier and that's embarassing. Anyway, after the last two incidents with the meme, I definetly agree on that felix needs to tone down. After this, we will definetly not be hearing the "sub to pewds" sentence any longer, because it is now related to big tragedy. I hope Felix understands this and can finally shut down the meme and possibly ban it in his subreddit. Felix himself may not care much about T-series passing him, but his fanbase has cared about it way too much, to the point where it's just ridiculous. He has taken this incident very seriously, and I hope he continues that way by ending the meme for good. I still don't think he is responsible for this, but he has almost 90 million people following him now and I hope this makes him realise how big of an influence he has on people.
    OT: Was KF mentioned by the shooter too? Their website is going crazy and they have a message stating they're not responsible and stuff like that.

    Felix doesn't actually care if he's not number one on youtube any longer. It only ended up becoming a meme and his fanbase is pushing it really hard. He has already said multiple times that he doesn't actually care that much. Because of the latest incidents I don't think he even wants to continue the meme because of how far it has gotten.
    Sadly enough, one guy can't control his fanbase. Just stating in a video "unfollow me if you're this and this" is not gonna do anything. Any big influencer can attract shitty people. I don't see the reason in bringing up the old drama of him because he has already learned his lesson from those.
    I'm gonna leave before it gets too heated in this thread. You can have whatever opinions you want on him and I know I can't change that. But my own opinion stands on what I've already said. I pray to the victims of this shooting, rest in peace.

    I pray for the victims of this shooting, the murderer was just an evil guy with some stupid idea of "starting a war". I'd prefer to focus on the victims and not just pewdiepie in this situation. 
    However, if you actually watch his videos you would know that Felix has said multiple times that you shouldn't do anything illegal in this meme. I don't understand how you think he has somehow encouraged it? I'm sorry but blaming him or saying he is somehow responsible is stupid. He hasn't encouraged anyone to do this type of shit. Once he found out that someone had written on a memorial for the meme, he was disgusted by that too and has helped them out in fixing it. This probably sounds really rant-ish, but I honestly don't see how he is to be blamed or to think he has somehow encouraged it because he really hasn't.

    Is no one gonna question if the person making that claim is legit??? I thought PULL was evidence-based in a way.

    Do you have anything to show that can prove this? Sorry if it’s harsh but I’m not going to blindly believe a random statement like that, people can say whatever they want on the internet nowadays. If it’s true then I’m sorry that happened to you. But it’s a rule on PULL that we don’t state things about the snowflakes without showing evidence of it, and it’s hard for me to believe you if there is nothing to prove your statement.
