When speaking with Kristi, she opened up to us in an exclusive interview about the critics surrounding the channel, as haters are usually the biggest downside to fame.

“I’d say that the biggest stereotype is that I hate everyone I talk about and everyone hates me. I think that in this space there’s an understanding that comes along with it from influencers and celebs in a way because they do harness the press at times when they need it if they’re promoting something like a new song, an album, a new movie. Not everything is negative but sometimes it’s seen that way,” she explained to us.

In fact, the YouTube reporter says that she has never experienced negative feedback from the subjects of the videos themselves.

She explained, “I’ve certainly had people reach out after covering them before, someone has thanked me before for the way I reported on their breakup. I’ve also had people try and defend themselves against accusations that have come out about them. But nothing has ever gotten “nasty.”
