    She does that every so often. Apparently she also uses they/them pronouns.

    omg the clip of him getting hit by a car was featured on Desus and Mero's old show and it was HILARIOUS. I had no idea who that kid was when I watched it at the time.

    Every Wednesday
    Every Wednesday
    Youtube | Instagram (Jay) | Instagram (Curtis)

    Background
    Every Wednesday is a YouTube channel created by model and DJ Jay Kennedy and centers around his baby pet monkey, Curtis. They are nearing 1 million subscribers on YouTube and Jay has nearly 350K followers on Instagram. He's posted videos with his pet monkey for the past five months but his channel blew up when his baby monkey bath time routine video went viral (it remains the most watched video on his channel) and led him to being featured on Inside Edition.
    It seems the visual of a bulky tatted man gently caring for a small exotic creature really struck a chord with the internet and Jay has capitalized on this, churning out several vlog videos with his pet monkey and posting more seemingly wholesome content on Curtis' IG page, which is nearing 100K followers.
    Controversy
    However, the main concern with Jay's channel is his ownership of a monkey in the first place. Owning a pet monkey is illegal is several states--though I'm not sure where Jay and Curtis live. There used to be comments on said bath time video pointing out that domestic ownership of animals like monkeys is inappropriate and will eventually have a really negative impact on Curtis' well-being. To my knowledge, Jay has not really gone into detail about where he got Curtis, which some commenters had found concerning, wondering if Curtis was forcibly removed from his home and family to be sold. Honestly, this is all speculation and I don't even have screenshots of those comments. I originally saw them a few months ago and I think Jay must have deleted them since then. Personally, I'm not trying to insinuate that Jay is in any way neglectful of his pets, but that trying to domesticate a monkey isn't in the best interest of the monkey, no matter how attentive you are to him.
    Regardless of the ethics of monkey ownership, it does seem like Jay is trying to profit off of Curtis with this YT channel and glorify owning an exotic pet. Titles of his YT videos mimic clickbaity videos from other big YT stars and I wouldn't be surprised if he were to start selling baby monkey-related merch. Before owning Curtis, Jay looked like he was trying to make it as a IG model and rapper/DJ (he still regularly posts thirst traps on his IG). This could just be another source of income from him. 
    Sidenote/fun fact
    Sadly, I don't have any proof of it, but Jay used to post videos professing his love for Tess Holiday and other plus-sized women. I think he even had a video listing reasons why he was specifically attracted to plus-sized women. They're no longer up--I guess they don't fit into his channel's current image. Someone mentioned it in this Lipstick Alley thread, pointing out that it was a good way to draw views from a female fan base by capitalizing on body image insecurities.

    Yes!! Unfortunately, I think Bri and her followers would respond that Japan's cultural standards are oppressive/misogynistic and she's being unapologetic about her body. I think it's been said before in this thread, but it's worth reiterating that Bri does not help feminism in Japan at all by selfishly doing what she wants. I'm not sure how best to put it, but like, if you want to encourage sex positivity and feminism in Japan, do it by supporting actual Japanese feminists and following their lead. Research and learn about what the issues most important to them are and support their voices. Bri just barged into Japan to do whatever she wants and called it feminism. She's the equivalent of what's "white feminism" in the U.S. 
    It's wild, she wants to advocate for intersectionality as a qpoc but does a horrible job at it in practice.

    I think when he said "His glory" he was referring to God, not Kanye (tho I wouldn't be surprised if he was talking about Ye). Apparently he's religious.

    In that "porno" there was a guy who was shirtless with a lot of tattoos. Apparently, he was saying (in Korean) that he and the other guy there should rape Katie and Mashiro as they weren't giving up anything on camera.

    Yeah I'm not sure how it is for BPD, but as far as I know if you're on some sort of psychotropic medication, you shouldn't just stop taking it because you think you don't need it. It's a mistake a lot of drs caution against. I've done that with my antidepressants once and it was not a good time. She should really be consulting her prescriber if she wants to start transitioning off. Key word being transition.

    Right? They're just as repetitive but they're less work, which I guess is what she cares about.
    I get she wants to make a living off YouTube but clearly she's just trying to figure out how to make the most amount of money with the least amount of work. It shows and it's sad.

    At 6:23 Sonny was asked about sexual harassment in Japan and boy was his answer underwhelming. Basically said it was always done by old creepy guys and Brianna noted that people his age were also capable of sexual harassment. Like did he not see her viral video? 
    They were also asked about toxicity in their relationship. (10:54). Sonny said he does think about it when they fight but he's trying not to repeat his mistakes (??) NO commentary about Brianna's toxic behavior tho

    She's so annoying. She does not look Ethiopian at all. There are a lot of other features specific to East Africans besides "silky hair." Not to mention many Ethiopians, myself included, have 4c hair and many non-East Africans have looser curls. Ethiopians are pretty friendly though so I'm sure many of them are saying that just to be nice or butter her up to get a good tip from a tourist.
    Also how are you going to make a vlog about traveling through Ethiopia yet spend 3/4ths of it rambling into a camera while in an Israeli airport?
