    The left cancels YouTube content pioneer Jenna Marbles over videos from 8-9 years ago

    Jenna Marbles, real name Jenna Mourey, was one of the earliest successful regular content providers on YouTube. It all got started 10 years ago, when she released this video, which seems downright amateurish by today's standards, but went viral:



    Jenna, who was 29 at the time, attempted to parlay her viral video into a large regular following, and it worked. She released regular videos (at the time, mostly humor-laced tutorials aimed at young women), and she quickly built a very large and dedicated subscriber base.

    While YouTube has been around since 2005, for the first five years of its existence, it was mostly a disjointed experience of random videos. There were some regular content providers at the time, but they were relatively small-time, and none made very much money.

    Jenna changed all of that. She and a few other 2010 content providers struck lucrative partnership agreements with YouTube, which were the forerunner of the monetization program seen there today (which nearly everyone qualifies for). It was the first concept of its kind on the internet -- where the users who bring the hits get paid big money to continue posting content.

    Okay, it was the second time that occurred. The first time was in 2007 when Jewdonk got paid $400 by Pokernews to post on NWP.

    Anyway, she was always seen as a venerable and respected figure in the YouTube content world. She blazed the trail for many other content providers to come after her.

    However, it was only a matter of time before the left-wing cancel culture was going to come for her. Apparently she did blackface to imitate Nikki Minaj in 2011, and did some song making fun of Asian names in 2012.

    That was enough for the left to come after her, and she has now been pressured into quitting YouTube forever.

    It was not my intention to do blackface. I do want to tell you how unbelievably sorry I am if I ever offended you by posting this video or by doing this impression, and that that was never my intention. It's not okay. It's shameful. It's awful. I wish it wasn't part of my past.
    .
    .
    .
    For now, I just can't exist on this channel ... I think I'm just going to move on from this channel for now. I don't know how long it's going to be. I just want to make sure the things I'm putting in the world aren't hurting anyone ... so I need to be done with this channel, for now or for forever.



    I never cared much for her videos, but I understood why other people liked them. I wasn't her demographic. She was aiming them at young women, and apparently was very successful in attracting that group to her channel. I respect what she's accomplished.

    And now she's gone.

    Great job, cancel-culture leftists, as always.

    RIP Humor

    Also here is Jenna from her go-go dancing days in the 2000s, before she found YouTube.

    RIP humor?

    You republicans are literally the most miserable people on earth. The type of people who stand with their hands in their pockets at a peral jam concert bitching about the smell of weed.


    You people always think someone is trying to get one over on you. Glum bastards.



    Sure let the old people die for the sake of money, who cares if they fought 1 or more wars to ensure the freedom of the very people who are now putting their finances ahead of the lives of the war vets.



    Fuck you assholes and your USA USA USA bullshit.


    Bunch of hypocrites

    I have heard of this chick, but have never watched a moment or knew anything about her content. My entire knowledge was YouTube star. You write she started out a decade ago at 29. That struck me as almost old to appeal to young women. Made me think sheís aging out of the following anyway pushing 40, but her wiki bio puts her at 33 now.

    I have no comment on the rest. It appears she stepped down and is calling it quits, or more likely a hiatus. It appears her boyfriend has a super popular channel also from what I read. Maybe she thought itís best not to take them both down if she can feel it coming. If sheís had a following that long, my guess is she can take a few month mea culpa hiatus and start back up again after penance. It isnít a tv show where once cancelled, youíre fucked as everyone else gets new jobs and itís some big financial commitment.

    Iím not seeing she is forced out. Doing black face in 2010 was idiotic. Blackface was a career killer 25-30 years ago. Iím sure she didnít think sheíd become some big hit, but she is educated, so if she was wasting the time to make a channel, she should have been smarter than that. Comedy, like all art, is subjective. Iíve never found anything amusing about black face, ever. Not because I give a fuck about the racist element, itís just not funny to me. Itís always corny af.

    I dislike the censorship of comedy, assuming she even qualifies as that, but my guess is sheíll step away, and if she has any real talent at all, be fine after a hiatus.

    It was all over Fox News a few weeks ago when they were complaining about the lockdown.

    Kind of ironic as the average a Fox News viewer is about 135 years old.

    So every comedian that ever did a voice of a different race or dressed up like one is done?

    What happen to the times where joking about the different races was funny as long as it wasn't done in a malicious, hateful way?

    Dave Chappelle is fucked.

    How about this:

    Republicans are more likely to be business owners and are more eager to get things going rather than let a lifetime of work go down the drain over something that isn't polio, etc?

    Democrats are more likely to work for others, for the government, or be stay at home gritters like big bird and don't care about ^^^ as there will always be a check in the mail for them?

    Food for thought.

    lol no, he's black, he can do whatever he wants.

    Dont get me wrong, I think Dave is the best comedian of my generation. But when Fallon and Kimmel are catching shit for doing specific impressions of a real person (but with blackface on), yet Chappelle goes unscathed for wearing whiteface while portraying a generic, stereotypical white guy.....kinda tells you all you need to know.

    My politics are issue to issue. I donít feel the need to be in one tribe or the other. I feel as if someone needs to refer to a certain partyís platform to decide where to fall on a certain issue itís a bit silly to me. I do understand that we basically have a binary choice and many feel the need to swallow what they donít like about the side they are on and just have to deal with it.

    That being said, it is clear that it is mostly a certain segment (Small but loud & motivated) of people on the left that really live for going into successful peopleís past and tearing them down. It is probably the same people that are constantly calling for boycotts of programs they disagree with. Of course, there are those on the right that engage in this as well. The voices on the left do seem to drown out those engaging in the same behavior on the right.

    I understand to the extent I can why it is the history of the use of blackface where white actors would make terrible, stereotypical & downright racist jokes about African-Americans while wearing blackface. White actors wearing blackface were given work that should of went to a person of color.

    I donít believe that any of these well known people were aware of the real history of blackface when they wore it. Nevertheless, it seems like this entire list has been given a pass. Note, you will not see anyone known to be a proponent of issues on the right except maybe for Robert Downey Jr. He has alluded to harboring some views that differ from most of Hollywood but has been careful to elaborate. I canít blame him when he has been cashing checks upwards of $50 Million Dollars the last 7 to 10 years.

    Justin Trudeau (2001) -Aladdin Brownface - Still Prime Minister mostly unscathed.

    Jimmy Kimmel (Late 90ís) - ďThe Man ShowĒ Various Black Athletes & Oprah Winfrey - Announced he will be taking the summer off and returning in September.

    Tom Hanks (2004) released in 2012 - School fundraiser where he dressed in blackface and African clothing. He apologized and that was about it.

    Ted Danson (1993) - Friars Club Roast of Whoopi Goldberg where he did a monologue in blackface which has been reported to include multiple uses of the N-Word. Came out mostly unscathed even with Mayor Dinkins denouncing the performance. (This wouldnít fly today or even 10 years ago but he seemed to do this right before it would of really hurt his career).

    Jimmy Fallon (2000) - Appeared in a skit on SNL impersonating Chris Rock in blackface. Apologized recently and seems to be unscathed.

    Robert Downey Jr. (2008) - Wore blackface to play a comedic role in the movie ďTropic ThunderĒ. There has been some debate and criticism but between many of his Hollywood friends defending the movie as a satire and then the beginning of his highly successful time playing Iron Man he has come out completely unscathed. In fact, he was praised for this role more than criticized in my opinion.

    Are there no business' in Europe?

    How is that they have about a 100m more people yet they are pretty close to being back to normal.


    It isn't hard stupid. Back in feb-march Trump shuts down the ENTIRE FUCKING COUNTRY. Then after 8-10 weeks you open back up safely like Europe and the ROW did.

    You got dumfucks like that stupid asshole in Georgia who i'm sure you voted for Kemp just shooting from the hip and re-opening business' without following CDC guidlines for re-opening.


    You retards think god is gonna save us.
