scandal 26/06/2020

One of YouTubes original vloggers has announced they're stepping away from the site.

Jenna Marbles a.k.a Jenna Mourey announced earlier today that she's quitting YouTube while apologising for past content that offended viewers.

“I think I’m just going to move on from this channel, for now,” she said. “I don’t know if that’s forever. I don’t know how long that’s going to be…. I want to make sure that the things that I’ve put into the world aren’t hurting anyone.”

Marbles said she's made private "almost all of my old content" including videos where she appeared in blackface impersonated Nicki Minaj and a rap video which included racist lyrics.

“I think there was a time when having all of my old content exist on the internet showed how much I have grown up as a person, which I’m very proud of,” Marbles said. However, “I think now it’s hard for that content to exist at all."
