Welp, I can’t say I’m surprised but I am a little disappointed. Chris Hansen is pulling out of the interview with Greg “for now”. Honestly, this is a smart move. Greg obviously has something planned, and that’s why he’s been so pushy to have everyone drop everything and do the interview live ASAP. He doesn’t care about “revealing the truth”. He has something planned and he wants to execute it. He’s as transparent as water. Honestly though, I feel like Chris could have gone through with the interview, without it being live, and if Greg tried to pull something it could have been edited out. Let’s say it was a prerecorded interview and Greg went off spouting vulgar shit or flashes his baby carrot. Obviously, it could be edited out. But I digress. Greg isn’t going to turn down another chance to interview with Chris, so we just have to be patient.
So here’s a video I found breaking down the entirety of Onion Boy trying to get Chris onto his own channel, before saying he’ll agree to go on Chris’ show if Chris demonetizes it. It’s got screenshots of pretty much everything. I agree with some points made so I’m gonna mention them: https://youtu.be/-c98RrZloso So last night Chris actually DID agree to demonetize the video if Onion will come on. Which is smart on his part because the only way he will get an interview with Onion is if they both somehow compromise. Onion’s compromise is doing it on Chris’ channel instead of his own (we all know he’s desperate for attention on his platform), and Chris’ compromise is demonetization (which sucks for Chris because making money off his investigating is how it remains sustainable for him to do). Also if Chris wants to prerecord the interview, I think that’s a smart idea. I do not trust Onion to not do something while live that could potentially get Chris’ channel a strike. He’s completely unhinged and out of touch with reality. Also his response to Chris saying he agrees to demonize it is super strange. He expects Chris to just drop everything and do the interview immediately. It’s also strange that he can’t seem to comprehend why Chris won’t contact him directly. It’s Chris fucking Hansen. Of course he has people to do that for him. Like, hello??
Looks like she deleted that post... And a bunch of others as well. Darn I was hoping to see it for myself. I’ve been paying close attention to Amanda since she came back online, and the most worrying thing I’ve seen is the face tattoo. Those aren’t inherently bad, especially in certain lines of work. But the choice of where on her face + the size + how crappy it actually looks is what’s worrying. Especially since we know she hasn’t been well mentally in a long time. I wonder why she decided to do that... About her BF, I personally don’t want to be quick to judge someone who I’ve never heard say a single word. There’s really no reason at this point to believe he could be a bad guy. I respect people’s opinions but idk why people are saying he’s sketchy? Why, cuz he’s an ex addict or something? Cuz I mean so is Amanda. If she found someone who’s in the same boat as her, cares for her and will encourage her to stay clean idk what the issue is. We know nothing about him so I don’t think it’s fair to label him as sketchy.
I find it lame how Chris has to mention literally every single stream that the FBI case will take time. We live in a generation of instant gratification so it makes sense that a lot of people would be like ‘oh so I guess nothing is going to happen cuz it’s been so long’. But even after being told numerous times by a man who’s worked with the FBI before that IT WILL TAKE TIME, people still whine about how long it’s been and apparently “give up hope” on the investigation... those people need to grow up.
What rubbed me wrong about the new video was how she downplayed her alcoholism. She said she did it for live-streams to loosen herself up and become talkative. Yet during an Instagram live she said flat out she’s an alcoholic and said she was drinking cooking wine during that live because she relies heavily on alcohol. Theres a difference between having a drink or 2 during a stream cuz you’re trying to have a good time, and being a flat out alcoholic who depends on the substance as a coping mechanism. I get it’s not an easy thing for anyone to admit, but she’s admitted it before and I think it would be beneficial for her to just be real with herself and others.
tbh that sounds like it came from someone from here or lolcow. Here and lolcow are the only 2 places where I see people speculating that she’s sugaring, and I doubt a random troll would come to that conclusion and leave the comment without having their speculation validated by other people also suggesting the same theory. i could be wrong for sure, but for now that’s what I think.
I just had this thought, and I’m not sure if anyone else has mentioned something like this. The US legal system can be pretty messed up. A lot of times, women offenders (of any crime) will get off easier than male offenders of the same crime. Now yes, I DO understand that Kai is transitioning. But I doubt the court will give a singular fuck about that, and will possibly still see them as a woman (also this is a separate note, but Shiloh pointed out that after a certain point of being with Greg, he stripped away all her girly-ness and made her be more masculine. So a huge part of me questions Kai’s transition cuz of this.... Perhaps what happened to Shiloh is happening to Kai. Plz don’t come for me, it’s just a thought and my intention is not to offend anyone). So idk maybe I’m rambling but there’s a part of me that worries maybe the court would go easier on Kai than on Greg, because this is something that’s happened time and time again. Look it up if you need to. It happens aaaall the time. Male teachers sleeping with female students get their asses ripped off and handed to them on a silver platter. But so many times, female teachers sleeping with male students get a slap on the wrist and sent to the timeout corner for 5 minutes. It’s sick and it worries me in this situation.
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.
