when she was asked about her scripted videos and how people corrected her on her Korean....chiiild the explanation was so dumb. "You can pronounce the same word differently" what? WHEN? Everytime I learned a new language we always followed the same pronunciation, and i always heard it being spoken the SAME way. Stop being so stupid and admit YOUR.KOREAN.SUCKS.

I honestly don’t understand why she had to justify her bad pronunciation amongst other things? Like honestly if you’re so used to speaking a certain language, you will more likely than not pronounce a new one wrong, I’m relatively used to non-koreans pronouncing words wrong but are still understandable on shows, or foreigners on chinese programmes literally being hyped for how good their mandarin is who are still slightly off in pronunciation? Imo, it’s not something that needs justification but it’s either the kboo crackdown or her taking it as a call out that she’s “not korean enough” (and will never be??) or both

really gurl? have you not heard of accents or dialects?? obviously if you learn a new languagae following the ”perfect” pronounciation model it’s the way you’re gonna say it and think it’s right. the same as non-english native speakers have different accents due to the way they pronounce letters in their native language. i of course get it that native korean speakers will hear mistakes if there are some, but korea has many dialects too, and nobody who has just started to learn a new language will sound like a native speaker. for example if a person tries to say something in my native language i might say they sound perfect cuz i umderstand what they’re saying perfectly. so if her ex bf told her her pronounciation is good cuz he understood what she said, it’s how she’d most likely continue using it. but i do think she should’ve handled the critique better, but many of them were really rude too. especially those who were non-korean speakers shouldn’t have attacked her for her pronounciation cuz learning a new language IS hard and they most likely wouldn’t have done any better.

well I would understand if people from different regions pronounce words differently according to their own dialect, but usually, when u teach a foreigner your language, you use the most correct way (that's how it's in Chinese and I don't think it's much different to any other language)

But in chinese at least, even with the dialects, the basic mandarin intonations and whatnot is still the same, there’s no other way to pronounce “à” for example, whether you ask a teochew or a hakka because it’s just how it is in the main language itself. I can only see the dialect affecting the accents but not how it’s pronounced. Then again I don’t know how Korean work and how the satoori affects anything so.

Because she’s completely convinced that she knows who I am. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Almost everyone on this thread agreed with the notion that she was escorting or doing shady shit, not just me.0F4E590D-88B6-4861-9951-76FC75D39841.thu

Ok so I just re-watched the video and I'm pissed. The girl who made this interview made it so one sided. She made Kathleen out to be this huge victim that "dindu nuffin" when in reality, a lot of her problems where caused by herself. Katie bullied, doxxed and harassed people as well. She's not this innocent girl who got harassed for no reason. Ofc there where those who did harass Katie for no reason but alot of it was retaliation/backlash for what she did. She provoked people until they snapped. Then, she'd play victim. It was a cycle. And its not like she was doing this years ago, no. Shes done this recently (mocking someone's broken tooth etc). That's why i dont really fw her apology. It just sounded like damage control to me. Like the interviewer said, not everything is one sided. But to make PULL out to be this haven for "mEaN CyBeRbUlliEs >:(" wasn't the right move either. When it comes to Katie's situation, there is no "good vs evil" narrative. Everyone had a shitty role to play in this. So stop painting Katie out as this fragile victim cuz she's not. She's far from it.

 

I agree the video was total bs, wouldn't be surprised if they were friends before lmao

Katie had to get her validation somehow. She didn’t get it from Reddit so she settled for Youtube. :alpacaheadshake:

Okay I just learned about the existence of this girl and made an account just to comment lol

 

i skimmed through this thread so I really don’t know jack shit about her, but from what I’ve seen:

 

1) she looks nothing like her pictures, that interview she did lol jesus, she could’ve tried a little harder to not look like THAT. No hair color really suits her and for some reason blonde hair really makes her look like a prostitute 

2) her korean is absolute shit, i say this as another foreigner living in Korea for 5 years and topik lvl 6. I don’t care when someone isn’t good at Korean but trying to justify it by saying ‘well it can be pronounced differently’ is just absolute bs. I’m so glad I skipped the first three levels of language school here, cause those are the ones that are FULL of bitches like her who think they’re the cutest white girls with the best Korean around

3) she definitely isn’t as pretty as she thinks she is, as I said she looks like a washed out prostitute.

4) anyone who is involved in so much drama online can’t be normal.

Hey, 

So I made this account just to respond to some of these comments. At the moment you may think I was biased towards Katie, but some people on YouTube have also said I was mean to Katie, so there is no right way to approach this. I know I can never satisfy anyone, but I'm honestly really scared that some of you will start coming after me next, so I just wanted to clarify some things:

- Katie and I were not friends prior to this interview - I'm not sure what basis you had for this allegation

- I never called PULL users " mEaN CyBeRbUlliEs >:(", which was why I made an effort to only ever called you "critics" and even made sure to label your comments as "backlash" or "criticism" rather than "hate comments" (you can look through my video again if you don't believe me).  I also called PULL a "gossip" rather than a "hate" forum (I do think that PULL is objectively a gossip forum - I mean, a PULL user did just speculate that I was Katie's friend for example,... so I do think that constitutes gossiping). Feel free to look through my video again, and you will notice that whenever I referred to PULL or their users as a whole, I purposely avoided these terms. The only time I used the word "hate comments" was at the 26:50 mark, but even that wasn't directed exclusively towards PULL users... Furthermore, when Katie mentioned that people on PULL were shaming her for the live stream, I even made sure to also include sympathetic comments. Lastly, I put multiple disclaimers at the 6:35 and the 25:39, as well as the disclaimer, stating that everything Katie said in the interview is just alleged, and I even encouraged people to do their own research (including looking at the PULL forum for themselves!!!) before forming an opinion. So taking all of that into account, I don't think I went out of my way to portray PULL in a negative light.

- If you watched till the part where I gave my take on the issue, I did point out that Katie should've accepted the constructive criticism, and I did not agree with the way she engages in arguments online. I agree there is no right or wrong in this situation (several of Katie's main critics actually messaged me on Instagram and this was exactly what I told them), which was why at no point in my video did I say or even imply Katie was completely right/ PULL users were completely wrong. That being said, I do stand by my point that regardless of what Katie did, I don't think PULL users can say they took the moral high ground, because honestly slut-shaming a potential victim of sexual assault is just... idk... nothing justifies that in my opinion....

- The last quoted comment said "Did katie just say "oh that?they're lying about all that" and she was just like "ok! Sure!" And went with it??". At no point in the video did that happen, I even called her out on both the Qipao and Korean incident when I felt that she denied/ minimized it (you can look through it again if you don't believe me). Even in the pinned comment of my video I said that "Overall Katie did admit to being impulsive and defensive at the time and apologized for her actions, though she also did state that some of the accusations were a misunderstanding/ inaccurate (this is what she said, I cannot verify/ dispute this as I wasn't directly involved)" <- This was directly copied and pasted from my pinned comment

 

All in all, please appreciate that this wasn't meant to be a video to call out any PULL users, if not I would've left all your usernames visible in my video and kept the parts of the interview where your names and personal info were mentioned. I was hoping that after this interview, both Katie and her critics could realize that both sides have made mistakes, so there is no resolution (at least in my opinion), and the best thing to do is to just accept what has happened and look forward. Please also note that I did not and will not condone any posts (whether its on YouTube or Instagram) revealing personal information about any PULL users, but ultimately I cannot control what Katie or anyone else posts. That's all I have to say for now. Despite any animosity you might have towards me, I do sincerely wish everyone the best!
