McKenna is a 20 year old youtuber, who calls herself buddhist.

I feel like her replies to some comments can be so unnecessary and defensive, especially since the comment isn't rude at all. I remember her reply to a comment on this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kmr8R4vOK7c but I can't find it, she probably deleted it. 

This is my first time making a topic here so I don't know, but I just wanted to know what you guys think about her. 

Photos I got from guru gossip

My husband grew up Buddhist and even though he isn't now, his family are still heavy Buddhists. She clearly doesn't know anything about the belief and is copying everything from Kiki.

Have you ever been judged for being a Buddhist?
"I've been told that I'm a tumblr hipster wannabe and I'm only practicing Buddhism because it's trendy"
"I have been judged for being Buddhist because I am not Asian or Indian"

She is so ignorant about Buddhism and also thinks Indian isn't the same thing as Asian. 

I feel like she only became Buddhist because it goes with her bohemian hippie vegan aesthetic or something.

I could already tell this video is problematic (headpiece...thing? it's odd) but I decided to click on it anyways to realize the comments are disabled. Having my family being theravada buddhists, and though I, myself, don't really practice it to the full extent, the video offended me greatly?

I can't exactly put it into words but this is such a basic, white understanding, and the fact that she's using buddha's head, which I've been taught is the most sacred and should not be touched, is a fucking pot upsets me a lot.

Again with white people using headpieces and saying it's "boho" is very yeah... I'm rolling my eyes really hard (the attachments won't go away sorry)

 According to her, she's half white and the other half is Turkish. Even though Turkish is still white....???

And a comment on one of her videos LOL

She also has an ohm tattoo, which is offensive. And there she goes using her being half Turkish as an advantage. She's STILL white.

It's hypocritical of her to preach about how buddhists can't get attach with inanimate objects, when they are actually are attached to their traditions, culture and morals/religion, but she is the one who is attached to an inanimate object. Why is this Buddha head so important when it obv is disrespectful and you can easily hurt no one by just not having it?? 

 

 

she got it at Target for $5... I mean...

Also, she always has to let people know she's middle eastern

"I'm not FULL WHITE, OBVIOUSLY.. I'm half Turkish, I have SOME culture in me, like I can only be HALF racist and disrespectful, I'm not fully responsible for my racist actions because I'm only HALF WHITE. I'm half Turkish BY THE WAY." 

She should have gotten this tattooed on her wrist instead of the ohm sign.. like girl we get it, you're racist either way 9_9

*edit* I saw this under the "Bohemian Hairstyles" video and the fact that people are letting her get away with this crap is astounding
