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.
Oh, I should have clarified that further: The whining took already place in all her weird and cryptic insta posts and I think it will continue this way. Her circle of whatever. It has been like that forever now. In benefit of a doubt I shouldn't call her out on that before she starts again, that's right.
About Venus and "Health Shaming": She does have a point. If she wants to, she can wreck her own body. I don't approve, but it's her personal choice and this is also freedom. Her body, her rules. Everyone has the right to destroy oneself.
Buuuut (of course there is a huge but. Two, to be exact): - Leave other people out of that. It's your choice if you harm yourself if you think you need to, but don't harm others. - And stop whining about it. You inflict this pain on yourself, stop crying about it to everyone, for God's sake. That's your business alone. See, you don't want to be health shamed, but you still want the pity.
Edit: I don't cheer on her doing that. Imo people should always have the freedom of choice and this includes also not to choose the own well-being. Like people who drink a lot of alcohol or who smoke, it's their freedom to do that, even if it kills them. I would always try to talk people in my reach out of dangerous behavior and just want everyone to be happy, but if someone decides for themselves to inflict pain and harm on the own body and I can't stop them, then I let it be. If help is wanted I try to provide. If not, it won't do any good to persuade. I think Venus knows that her behavior will cause her body severe trouble. I also think she needs professional help, but it won't help if she refuses it. It is sad to watch, and it's very hard to feel sympathy towards her at this point. just my opinion , you don't have to agree with me, of course!
You know this pic/ screenshot is heavily edited, yes? In most of her pics she uses a lot of blurring and possibly some anti-wrinkle app. In the pics are some evidence she edited her double chin and wrinkles away: - Take a look at her jawline. Do you see it? No? Me neither, cause she edited her jawline almost completely away.
- Look at the shadow surrounding her chin. This is the outline of her double chin she has hidden in this picture.
- No nasolabial lines either, even though those are supposed to be visible if you open your mouth as she does in the picture. Just try it at home, open your mouth wide and these lines will appear from the edge of your mouth to your nose. And when people get older these lines tend to stay, but with that expression, even young people will notice these folds. I tried to draw some lines beside the place where those folds are almost visible. She does indeed have a double chin and sagging cheeks.
- her eyes are suspiciously wrinkle-free, even though they are half-closed and, as you can see clearly in the other pic of her, do have some wrinkles, which is quite normal if you are older than 30.
For a better comparison, I took a picture from her insta. This one is edited as well, but not as heavy and you can clearly see her lines and her double chin is not completely hidden. I also added an older picture which was taken from a magazine and -as far as I know- has not been edited by her. Quite a difference, I'd say.
At least she does some very serious accusations without any proof, is contradicting herself as stated in the whole above discussion and well, some of the things she says are actually exposed as lies. And I don't even start with her basically emotional blackmailing her Instagram community, threatening with suicide every now and then, posting weird sexual stuff and then claims everything will be better again, only it will not. Don't get me wrong, I would be happy if she got help (best offline, with a good break from social media). But mentally ill or not, her behavior is harmful to other people. Lots of her fans are quite young and will get it wrong if she jokes about sex and suicide. And her friends live in constant danger of her "exposing" them and releasing a shitstorm over them at any moment, cause everything seems to be either black or white. Her fans will lash out at Manaki now for sure, even though nobody knows what the actual truth is behind it and this kind of problem should better be solved in private or, if everything goes wrong, with a lawyer. Not with the whole effing internet to attack you. Today Manaki is Margo 2.0, but maybe the next day every accusation was "a joke" and he is her loving husbando again. Like the time she claimed he was a sex offender, and a day later it turned out to be a sick joke (Prove on the previous page). This reputation sticks, no matter if it's true or not. Who will be the next one she will feed to the crowd? Mikan? Ella Freya? Taylor? Whoever she will shitpost about next, you can be sure there will be the crowd of fangelics at her service to attack this person.
And this is not a teenager making a one-time mistake, it's a grown woman acting like a toddler. She is randomly destroying other people. And she doesn't seem to care. And well, this makes her a bad person to be around. Acting cruelly will trigger harsh responses. And seeing this is not the first time she pulls those kinds of stunts, people are fed up with her shitty behavior.
You are right, it's not okay to call him a stalker. I edited it a little. But I stick to my point of view: It does look fishy if a fan follows you uninvited and you end up with a very hushed marriage. It's not right to call him her savior either. But I wouldn't go as far as call him her savior if he might turn out as a margo 2.0. We don't know what is true.
Maybe some time alone would do Venus some good. Without the internet as well. She lived first with her mother, then with her husband and maybe never had the time to figure out who she was as a person. Her character and personality were always crafted to please someone else if what she says is true. Either way, just lashing out at him while she still lives with him (?) or is at least married to him won't do her any good, it will release a shitstorm on him, even though nobody knows if the accusations are true. And it can endanger her if he gets attacked and she is not out of his reach.
So basically she asked her audience to leave Manaki alone and now she feeds him to the crowd.
You don't need to be a genius to see that their relationship looked unhealthy from the start, she was basically married off to her stalker. If her mom's role in the whole affair was true, and see what kind of evil human Margo is, I figure it might be. I feel sorry for her, but I think as long as her husband is near her and they live together (?) she shouldn't expose him to the whole internet. But I guess she likes the danger and the drama. Venus really needs to see a therapist.
Edit: Of course I don't know if Manaki is a stalker or not, nor do I know how forced the marriage was or not. I am being polemic in this post to make a point. From an outside point of view, it looks like a bad choice from someone who didn't know any better. And whatever Manaki did or didn't do, by this video Venus calls for a witch hunt.
I am sorry to say that, but she looks really bad in those pics. Like really intoxicated, wasted or on drugs. IMO it's not pretty at all. She just looks like the kind of girl you find at 4 a.m. outside of a club.
"I am not being an ass, it's my Asperger." That's my first thought on that. But who knows, maybe she will try to get help and learn not to be rude to everyone and how to not start a fight about everything. But I doubt it.
At least she should stop updating on her mental health every now and then and how she is now finally getting better and doing videos and whatever. So people won't nail her down on her own words if it's not getting better and she is not doing any more videos. Maybe if she managed to live through at least one or two years without being breaking down again, then she can announce that she is being better and stable. So she knows it has lasted a while and isn't just another manic phase.
It's okay to have a hard time, to be mentally ill and not knowing what to do with your life. But it's easier to cope when you don't announce very publicy every little step you might take and every single idea you have. Like this Malice crap. Or her "progress" before the next breakdown. She could just finish a project before posting about it and fucking stick to her "privat is privat" words and stop posting her very privat breakdowns to the whole fucking internet.
I think she spends so much time with journaling and the Harry Potter challenge to keep herself occupied. She doesn't have too many friends over there and this project keeps her busy enough to not think about Japan, about her not fitting in, her being alone and so on. It's not like she has time to spend in classes the whole day.
She already triggered debates about this in the past after shipping herself with some male anime characters, I think? Might be in the summary. My theory is you are completely right: Her choice of words is a bait, just like her posing in panties and simultaneously challenge people to be triggered about that in the description. It practically screams "Come at me! Start a debate! Let me prove I am right and you are wrong!"
Maybe she craves attention. A debate with her "antis" might be just the right snack for attention-hunger, right?
