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'm no climate specialist but as I was listening to some series on the fires in Aus on a French radio the other day, it underlined the number of people victims of the fires even - who don't believe that our main terrible habits of unethical consumption have any part to play in the rise of the natural disasters. tl;dr: Kim - as many other who may have a front-row seat to the consequences of our ways - don't think they're part of the problem and won't change for shit.
See, that's the problem when 'em wk (or the flakes themselves) don't read the thread: they accuse members of saying shit they haven't said (or only isolated commenters and not the majority.) People here keep saying they'd be 10x cuter if they weren't shopping themselves like Walmart-versions of Gangnam unnie and pretending to be naturally as pale as Casper the ghost. The twins are cute in a "mixed-girl IG baddie" kinda way and people - myself included - would have had nothing to say about them if they didn't base their entire online persona on fake Ao3 accounts of supposed stories. I really want Black girls to keep winning but I'm not supporting every dumb adult out there who lies about smashing K-idols (like the twins or that delulu Kmusic woman.)
But why - as a non-Chinese and certainly non-Asian - does she appear to be the only one dressed like that? As usual, that WHITE AUSSIE is pushing the chinaboo-ness to the max as if she grew up in Guangzhou or something...
I'm glad that none of my friends are "influencers" and that the people I know who are, at least respect my and everyone else's wish not to appear anywhere near their feed when we hang out. Seems exhausting/draining to be around someone like Mikan (who cares more about her own comfort than anyone she interacts with.)
Same thing here! I don't get mukbang nor do I like asmr so this all thing is like a nightmare in video form to me. I lasted like 30 seconds and sped up to see her there but I couldn't really watch it, even without the sound on. Anyway, yeah we've established the twins are cute and would be more popular and liked if they weren't insane snowflakes in the making, trying to pass themselves off as some sort of mixed-Asians. Too bad their legacy will forever be tied to their wattpad essays on how "LiT" every KPop concert they've gone to were and how Got7 like 'em "mIxEd BiTcHeS" and almost kinda sorta for sure slept with them (or was it BTS?) (or was it both?)
And when you compare it to the moment when Tyler's father says "sh-mash" in his Best Man's speech, you can see where it differs between shading an ex-coworker (by the buzzfeed crowd) and making a good-hearted joke for your son and his (new) wife. Anyway, as much as I've been a bit disinterested in Saf's videos lately, the wedding was quite cute and really up to her likes and image. Glad that they're happy and I teared up a bit when they did (as I teared up at the proposal video back then). But man did that bit about Tyler's shoes stress me out! They were probably more stressed than any of us about that but how did nobody think about him having any shoes for his own wedding? Isn't it part of his whole outfit? Like making sure he has a dress shirt, a tux/suit and SHOES?! (I'll admit I'm not a groom-to-be so it probably doesn't rank as high on the list of priorities but it still gave me second-hand anxiety!)
Dude same! At some point I was cleaning my YouTube feed and thought "Wait, what's the point in staying on a followers list for a channel that uploads like three times a year and isn't that enjoyable anymore?" (Also OT but thanks for the rec about Tina's Life - I knew about nigiricco and Rhea - who are both really great - but not about Tina so thanks! At least, these boards are good at letting me update my subscriber's list lol)
Weirdly enough, I can't bear to look at their cats videos (I don't remember clicking on any of their video in ages tbh) but I've watched all the videos centered around the stray cats that 2Hearts1Seoul put out... I feel like it's how you frame the videos: R&J feels like a quick cash grab / lazy update when Sarah&Kyuho's looks more genuine (and their vlogs don't revolve around cats only.) If R&J would release videos of regular updates (even boring whatever) and then a lil' update about the cats, fine I'd watch (or maybe not) but the other way around is just plain damn annoying.
To add to what I said earlier after re-reading her story, yes she raises some important point but... She mostly has herself to blame when it comes to some commenters/followers not respecting the boundaries she hasn't even clearly implemented? I'm of the opinion that followers/fans aren't entitled to know every single thing about the influencer/celebrity they like but she's the one who invited her viewers into some intimate parts of her life. Mikan is the one who has talked about her bf and made videos and other posts with him, then got mad that people would start to ask questions about their relationship post-breakup. She made a whole ass video about her BFF who came to live in Japan because of her and then gets frosty when people are questioning why they don't do anything together anymore. She also talked at lengths about the process she followed to get into a Japanese university and then get short-tempered when some ask her how she can juggle such a work load and making videos... She constantly and repeatedly invited the viewers into her life and then gets mad "her Brit humour on!" when they have follow-up questions. You either don't ever talk about anything personal or you do but then, you gotta play the game when people get nosy (and they always do that's "human nature" too Mikan.)
Then... Stop being an influencer? It's as easy as that. Oh wait, but then you wouldn't have followers, nor have free shit sent to you because of those followers and so on... You can't have your cake, eat it all and have a date with the baker on top of it. Also the whole spiel about "your invasive question might be rude and the influencer reacts like that blah blah"... Mikan, as it has been pointed many times here, you're the rude one even to nice commenters and followers. I used to think people were being harsh on her on this thread but man she's really an entitled brat.
