I wouldn’t be too worried about Keem interviewing Onion Boy. We been knew that Keem is a clout hungry, morally corrupt asshat (what else would we expect from a grown ass man who makes his career off reporting internet drama). And it sucks he’d want to do this, especially considering how gross it is towards Onion’s victims. We know exactly who he is. But interviewing Onion Boy in a positive light that “gives him a chance to tell his side” isn’t going to help his career or image, especially considering most of the internet is on Chris Hansen’s side. Also Onion Boy has only made his case worse with everything that he’s said about the situation since it started. It’s not going to be any different if he were to hop onto someone else’s platform, especially someone like Keem. If it happens, it’s gonna be a dumpster fire and Onion will continue to make himself look worse, just as he always has. Honestly, let him do it. Give Chris and the FBI more fuel for their investigation. Also very gross how someone who has children would want to lend their platform to someone who has groomed children and had sexual contact with them in the past.

I have to disagree here. At least with the first part. If Margo were the brains behind Venus’ channel, why is her own channel so awful and mediocre? She can’t really edit to save her life, and shes never made any content on her own that was genuinely successful. It’s not just about being able to pull off kawaii looks, and that’s evident in Venus’ content now which is crashing and burning. Someone who is able to make good content will have at least a moderate amount of success because the stuff they’re releasing is actually good. Venus had some great content after she ran away to Japan, where she was no longer confined to her house making bad makeup tutorials/dancing videos. The way her videos were edited drastically changed for the better as well. I feel Venus’ content during the beginning of her channel was somewhat “wannabe kawaii”, so to speak. And it took a lot of growing as a YouTube personality to get to the point her videos got to in Japan. Which to me, actually fit the aesthetic she always wanted them to be. Margo may have been a momager, but Venus’ content really became something worth watching after she ran away and was doing it on her own. I also feel that Venus’ content during the beginning of her channel gained so many views because people saw her as a spectacle, not a person. People either thought she was cringey, weird, or cute. When she started making content in Japan, at times she actually showed her sense of humor and laid down real human emotions and vulnerabilities (telling about running away/abusive Margo, reading hate comments, Q&A’s, ect.)
I mean yeah? No offense but you’re sort of stating the obvious. All I’m saying is, in her current state, it’s possible that someone would try to take advantage of her. Not fact. And no one is gonna change my mind on that one. It’s just what abusers do. Making this bold tho so I make sure my point comes across that I’m not saying she WAS abused or this guy is an abuser.
People aren’t afraid to say shit when they’re drunk. That’s part of why it can dangerous. You’re inhibitions fly right out the window, and people do shit like text exes, start fights, divulge secrets, and... well, say weird shit like she just said. If we go with the theory that the abuse towards the child is true, she’s definitely drunk and that’s the only reason she said any of this. It also looks like the breakup is currently going down considering she showed us her packed bags. She probably gtfo with her stuff and started drinking. I don’t judge TOO much with the way people phrase things, especially when speaking on sensitive topics. I can be really hard. But this is ALL assuming anything she said is true. And with her, who knows. Im just currently trying to think of reasons why she’d lie about the abuse of a child. We don’t even know who this Ken guy is, we’ve never seen his face, and we don’t even know anything about what he does or any of the “work” they did together. We didn’t even know about his ex/assistant till today. God this is all so fucking weird.
Idk man divulging details of a child’s abuse like that is.... just crazy. Assuming it’s all true. I could understand if she told us she was leaving her current boyfriend and later explained there was abuse going on towards the child (without giving away gory details).. but nah that’s not what she did. Like someone else said, considering her ex and his assistant likely know her Instagram, it wasn’t a great idea to say all this publicly (concerning the child). Perhaps she has them all blocked, but even then people can create new accounts, use their friends accounts, ect.. This is just wild. It would have been so much smarter to share that they’re breaking up and then say more about it later on, or make a video. When it comes to Venus saying she’s been abused twice now (Mana and Ken), I don’t really believe Mana was abusive. But look at her! She’s incredibly vulnerable, she’s an alcoholic, mentally ill and generally a mess. Not too far fetched that someone would see this and take advantage of her under the guise that they’re her manager or they’re going to work together. I’m not saying she WAS for sure abused. But I’m saying that abusers look for people who are vulnerable like she is so they can take advantage of them. It could be possible this happened. But the world may never know....
I mean yeah, he was caring after he was initially super pissed and was potentially going to end the marriage. Until he spoke to his Mother about everything. Don’t get me wrong I’m not disagreeing with you, just discussing. I suppose it’s probably a new guy, but I was thinking maybe some of her stuff was still at Mana’s apartment? Plus I know divorces can take time cuz the court systems move slowly. Anyway sorry I’m rambling, it was probably a new guy she’s referring to.
Like... is she talking about Mana, or whatever man she’s likely been slumming it with since divorcing Mana?? The start of her first story “bye u ken” makes no sense to me, could there be a typo in there? Serious tea tho wow EDIT: dunno how recent this is, but Venus no longer follows Manaki’s page @/manarosenrot on Instagram. Plus the page seems to be gone altogether because it no longer comes up when you search for it.
Venus edits her photos to hell quite often, but that photo is clearly just a snow filter so I have no issue with it. Almost everyone posts pics/stories with filters these days. As for the stuff being said about her using a “love“ filter while posing with a child, and the choice of the emoji’s in the caption, I feel it’s all overreaction. The eyes emoji isn’t inherently sexual and neither is a filter that says “love”. Gonna get some people thinking I’m trying to defend her or something, but no. I really just don’t see any significance with any of the things being mentioned. The real head-scratcher is who is that kid??
yeah, it’s fucking baffling. I’ve agreed with some things they said but overall there seems to be strong intention to police other’s opinions/feelings and a hatred for Venus, even though she clearly isn’t mentally well. Derailing for the sake of argument isn’t cool either. Venus definitely needs to be held accountable for her actions but the amount of venom I’ve seen being spewed from this user doesn’t sit well with me either. also @IdylleDoll your previous post is insightful and amazing. As much as I’ve been “angry” with Venus in the past, I don’t think my frustrations truly lied with her. But more so what she’s become as a result of her upbringing. Took me a little while to realize that.
I don’t think moving to another country is in Venus’ wheelhouse right now... I mean she’s not making any money. She would have to get a real 9-5 job and start saving, saving, saving. I assume it would be really expensive to up and move to another country? She has to pay someone to move her stuff for her, and she’s in an island country so it would have to be transported overseas. Plus then the cost of getting herself out of the country, after she figures out where to go. And finding/paying for a place to live. I don’t think just crashing with the grandparents is a great idea, considering the grandfather was once saying things to excuse Margo’s awful behavior as a mother. So yeah, no. If this is really something she’s gonna do, she needs to do it herself and not be reliant on anyone else’s home or finances.
