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.
Here's a hot take about her dead memes: Kenna just wants to remind everyone that she's aro/ace. That's why she ignored all of the other comments on PULL criticizing her (i.e. her autism video.) Like who in their right mind would focus on that after reading a couple of pages on here recently? Literally the topic is something that is briefly mentioned typically since it has been talked about a lot throughout all of her threads and it only warrants discussion when she does shit like this. I don't think that there was more than two comments about it at the time she checked on PULL (because I doubt it was from her followers... They literally say sorry in fear of being blocked if their comment has any chance of upsetting Kenna.) In my opinion, I believe she's trying to get across that she's aro/ace for either a video, aesthetic, or both. She keeps mentioning it in her stories and I bet that something is coming up that involves it.
But- people have been skeptical... For about 15 pages we've been over the autism video. 15 pages where someone had to mention it. It's boring, it's tired, and it's annoying. It's not like we're talking about her awful makeup skills. It's about doubting Kenna's diagnosis. It's a topic that needs to be handled carefully because of the fact that people aren't very aware of mental health and will say shit like: "My depression medication is going outside :)" I am not saying that anyone doubting her is a terrible person since she has lied many many many times, but I am saying that it really shouldn't change the thread from Kenna's bullshit to doubting Kenna's mental health constantly. It's a topic we should stay away from for a while to see if our speculations bear any fruit/make the discussion more interesting when we return to the topic. What's the point of gossip if it isn't interesting and it makes people uncomfortable?
Well, it makes sense. She's actually uploading fairly consistently and acting more transparent. You guys can criticize her all you want, but Kenna has been producing better content recently (I would know since I watch a good chunk of em.) She was more entertaining with her friend in the Q&A and showed a very personal side of her in the autism video even if it is dubious. She is following what people have been saying countless times on all of her threads. She even went back to boho. I don't think that the connection is necessarily because of the autism video, but more so all of these factors combined. There's a reason why some of us are defending her because she has improved somewhat and that there hasn't been enough time to see if she is in fact using the autism diagnosis as an aesthetic.
Is anyone else uncomfy with the topic? I know Kenna isn't a saint but we really should wait before making judgement about her lying. Even shitty people need the benefit of the doubt sometimes. Doubting someone on a mental illness/developmental disorder needs some serious evidence to be justified in my opinion.
This journal video was way more tired than the last one. It felt reused/hashed and the only improvement from the prior one was that she used the right year. The coolest part about the video is the test that she talked about which isn't hers. I'm pretty salty since this could have been really cool, but she hardly put any effort into it. Wouldn't a Potioneer journal entry have more green/black hues? Why are there the same mushrooms she used last time when there could have been potion bottles, cauldrons, and a spooky nighttime backdrop? At least she introduced me to the original creator of the O.W.L.S since I am definitely checking out the reading challenge.
I consider the seasons to be an annoying quirk that can get repetitive fast. Many of us are bored with her fall aesthetic because she does it for most of the year so her claiming to do a seasonal aesthetic is a lie. People here just want to see something different and the seasons thing is linked because Kenna never follows through with truly changing it for that long. It's not that much of an issue, but seeing bright colors would seriously make her feed more lively imo. (As in actually taking photos without a bunch of weird filters over it so it doesn't look washed out/bland.)
The discussion is truly dead over there. I can now empathize with how upset everyone was a few months back because now I can't even bring myself to read pages about there being potentially cultural appropriation with boho style of all things
I'm going to be controversially honest here. Why are you guys being so negative about her recent activity? I actually really enjoyed her newest video. Most of Kenna's vids that I watch are awfully boring, but having the friend there seriously loosened Kenna up. Even the obvious attempt at being cutesy with the sleeping comment didn't bother me since I'll randomly say stuff to be more likable/entertaining even if it is cringey. I'm happy for her that she actually is putting in effort in her YouTube channel lately (I liked parts of her journal video a lot too) since it proves to me that Japan really did give her a reality check. She doesn't want to stay there much longer, she is putting more effort into videos, and she is even branching out with insta since she is definitely trying to respond to genuine fans of hers on her newer posts. Even her latest post isn't that bad. I agree with her sentiment (even though we all know that probably wasn't the reason why she posted it) and her clothes look flattering on her.
I feel like if she actually does turn over a new leaf relatively quickly we wouldn't see it for a long time on here. Especially since a lot of people on here are like me with being hypercritical of her. She could donate thousands of dollars to help the environment right now and a part of me would think that she was covering her ass about the Yesstyle thing or not making the most wisest financial decision with her lack of employment. Kenna's past is always going to follow her so it's the reason why I believe it would be pretty difficult to change how many of us see her. It would take effort and awareness which is something I haven't seen a lot of from Kenna.
THIS THIS THIS THIS!!!!! That last sentence sums up Kenna perfectly. It's the reason why I believe she can never be original. How can she if she isn't sure if others will like whatever she's creating? Her interests are always focused on what others are talking about so she can look cool/relevant. It makes me think that she's secretly a granny (she sure does look like one sometimes) who's trying to be hip with the kids even though she's 23.
