I feel like I've mentioned this before but I'll say it again. Miranda shit all over patreon users for essentially getting paid for doing "nothing" and put herself up on a pedestal because she puts out content for free! What a good person Kanadajin is! Then she voluntarily quits her job without savings, without a backup, without any kind of plan and turns around to beg for money. And all that sweet YouTube revenue all goes towards LV bags and not.... her rent? Food? Nope. She can buy a bunch of expensive shit and brag about it, put on a sob story, and get easy money just like that!! She begs for money while simultaneously bragging about all the fancy stuff she drops her money on, she's so classy, my hero. Just like the way she shits on foreigners and tweets they need to get out of Japan, but records herself drunk and making a scene.
Just going out on a limb, there were complaints the old drama was boring and people were getting tired of hearing it over and over again, and then this happened. Of course, I don't support harassment of Mira offsite or every interacting with her in any way on social media or in real life. I don't think anyone here really does. It's hard though to feel like this is anything but a call for attention. She made the angry rant in her uniform, she's talked about where she works, it was crumbs they were going to be pieced together eventually. A waitressing job is a pretty visible job. Despite this I'm going to give her the benefit of the doubt because it seems like the Japanese sites hate her a lot more than we do and want to hurt her rather than sticking to picking apart her shitty concert attire
The problem has never been whether or not language attrition actually exists or not, it's that claiming it after a couple months is probably not the problem. If you're loosing your grasp on your native language that quickly you probably never had a good grasp on languge to begin with. Sharla, Rachel and Victor can speak very clear and discernibly good English after years abroad. They live and work with both Japanese and English speakers, as well as provide content on social media in both languages. I would have to read more but I'm assuming practicing English with other English speakers would help you hang onto the your language better than being completely immersed 24/7. I highly doubt Mira has that kind of immersion in Japanese at all times. TBH it probably has more to do with her youth spent partying and drinking instead of going to school
Good to know. I guess there's a lot of sources in this thread on how to watch her videos through other sites so she won't get the views/revenue. Anyways, i can't say the last time I've actually watched a video of hers and not just came here to see if there's anything new. Mostly I lurk around twitter instead
She literally told everyone by interacting with her videos it looks positive to YouTube no matter if its negative. Thank you for the heads up Miranda, now I can use adblocker and I've stopped disliking the shittiest of your videos. You get absolutely 0 from me, and from everyone else who caught on because you decided to brag about the pennies you make off them. She's a liar, a hypocrite, and all together not that intelligent. I wouldn't want to be in her place even if she was making hundreds of thousands of dollars off her channel and was one of the most successful youtubers imaginable. She can't buy back the respect of all the people she treated like shit, she can't undo the reputation she made for herself. No matter how hard she tries to scrub her misdeeds the Internet will never, ever forget. Ive mentioned in the past that I made mistakes. I destroyed my reputation and hurt people who had treated me far better than I deserved. Once I realized that all along it was my mistakes catching up with me, no one else's, I was able to fix things, regain friendships, and be infinitely more happy with where I am in life. Miranda has not, and will never learn at this point. Every time she kicks and screams that she's innocent despite alll the evidence to the contrary she just makes herself look like a spoiled toddler (which she is). So what if you're making money off old drama you still look like shit.
It's funny because that was my first thought, some of my vegan friends have mentioned it before. So no matter what price milk you buy you're potentially imbibing something that could promote cancer. It hasn't scared me off the milk train yet though. I'm assuming this is what she meant also, i.e. the cheaper food is made cheaply and the more expensive food is better for you (organic or whatnot). Not that she made that point well in her broken ass English. My question for Miranda is would u rather milk cancer or let cancer milk u
I'm sure the mods are tired of hearing us over here screaming about Miranda among us, like "oh they're at it again in the Kanadajin thread." Not to say it isn't, but it's impossible to be sure. Sockpuppets are Miranda's MO after all
I don't think it's right, but an outsider coming in to any culture and trying to commentate on it isn't usually well received. Miranda trying to educate Japanese people on their history, as racist and brutal as it has been, isn't going well and yet she continues to antagonize. I can say from the outside looking in Japan needs to change, but I can't be the one that can speak to them from their cultural heritage and with the same history of bias. Miranda, no matter what she says or does, is from North America. The history also includes its fair share of imperialism and genocide which has been more openly acknowledged and is becoming more and more well known. It's not the same in Japan. It's going to take movements of people born and raised in Japan to take their awareness and make the change. What Miranda is doing isn't bad, per se, but she also lacks the understanding to do it appropriately. I don't believe in bringing any kind of harm to her, or interacting with her beyond what I say in the forum, but she knows full well there are people that will. She has been perpetually an asshole, arguing with actual Japanese people about language and culture despite the fact she has been there a faction of her life as opposed to born and raised. Her nasty attitude is the only thing that has brought her the multitude of haters. Of course there are always going to be people that hate you regardless of your focus, but Mirandas personality has done her no favors in the long run. She's lied and bullied her way to where she is today and, as shitty as the people on 2ch are, she really does being this stuff on herself. I don't think getting her deported is right, or stalking or harassing. Most people on PULL would be thrilled if she became a nicer, less antagonistic person. I'm pretty sure everyone would agree if she changed for the better, there would be a lot more positivity on this forum.
Miranda talking about Japanese history like she actually understands it is really detrimental to what she's trying to achieve. It might be interesting to foreigners, but it's not buying her brownie points with people who are native to Japan. Especially when talking about controversial topics like the Ainu, coming in from an entirely different culture and trying to talk down to another on their own history isn't going to work well. I agree there should be an awareness of things that have long been denied by the Japanese government, but I am also an outsider, and I can't speak on how that should come about. Even if I moved to Japan today and spent my life studying the Ainu, a lot of people would still see me as an outsider trying to commentate on something I can't fully understand from the perspective of an actual native born and raised Japanese person. She dug her own hole and just kept digging. Whatever happens to her is her own fault.
