Jenna Marbles Announces Decision to "Move On" From YouTube

Fellow YouTubers React to Jenna Marbles Quitting YouTube

After a decade on YouTube, Jenna (real name Jenna Mourey) took to her channel to address, apologise and hold herself accountable for certain videos that she had posted in the past.

Jenna Marbles, aka Jenna Mourey, shot to popularity in her 20s thanks to videos that tackled seemingly everyday things like putting on makeup while drunk, overindulging in junk food, or avoiding people you don't want to talk to. "And I try to make fun content, inclusive content, things that don't offend people or upset people, and that's kind of where I am", said Mourey, 33. Mourey also apologized to her fans: "I'm just a person, trying to navigate the world, just like you are". But Marbles said in her video this also makes her uncomfortable, because she knows she isn't ideal.

Applauding Jenna for her selection, one more fan extra, "I want to remind people that Jenna Marbles is a prime example of a human being that has taken accountability for their actions, grown as a person, and applied the lesson they learned from that moment on". "I don't know if that's forever, I don't know how long it's going to be", she admitted. Her videos quickly garnered more than 3 billion views.

Long-time YouTuber Jenna Marbles announced in a video this week that she would be "leaving" her channel and that she had made several old videos, some of which were seen as "negative" or racist, private. "I've definitely done things in the past that weren't great", she confessed. And I hope you know that's just not my intention. "I'll probably take this video down because it's embarrassing and just let whatever, just live and just be. That's not what I ever set out to do, to hurt anyone's feelings or to make anyone feel bad".

In 2011, she was accused of doing blackface by using dark spray tan while impersonating Nicki Minaj for a skit.

ESPN , however, reported that a meeting had taken place with Guendouzi in which Arsenal reiterated their faith in him and apparently said they didn't want to sell him.

Controversial YouTuber PewDiePie has spoken out in support of Jenna Marbles after the OG content creator announced her departure from the platform earlier this week. I don't know how else to say this, but it doesn't matter. "I want to hold myself answerable, and it's achingly to do it".

As she addresses a couple of her old videos, Jenna Marbles says she finds her own behavior inexcusable. "I imagine I'm just going to transfer on from this channel for now", Mourey explained, visibly emotional.

"I wish @Jenna_Marbles all the best", Twitter user @Georgia_spry wrote.

Marbles then says she's only on her channel to have a good time, but states she no longer is and feels that some viewers aren't either, so she will be stepping away from her channel. "It's very bad. It doesn't need to exist".

But others praised Mourey's reaction as taking responsibility for past mistakes. "My tears are reserved for all the Black people who will never even attempt to have a YouTube career because they don't want to be subjected to racism all day every day as a living", popular YouTuber Akilah Hughes tweeted.
