YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg is urging his fans to send support to YouTuber Eugenia Cooney, after her video cosplaying Kingdom Hearts character ‘Kairi’ garnered mass concern from viewers.

While Cooney has been a subject of controversy for years due to her skeletal appearance, her cosplay video shows a dramatic change in her weight, with the bones in her arms and legs clearly visible.

PewDiePie took note of the backlash surrounding the video and urged his viewers to send support her way, as stated during an episode of ‘Pew News’ on February 3.

“I just really want people to send her as much support and love as possible, and I really mean that,” Pewds said of the issue. “I think that’s the only thing she needs right now. I hope that she will listen to people and try and understand where they’re coming from.”

Since then, members of the “nine-year-old army” have flooded Cooney’s comments section with positive messages, urging her to seek help for what appears to be a severe eating disorder that has plagued the YouTuber for years.

While Cooney has yet to respond to the messages, she has previously denied any claims of suffering from eating disorders or body dysmorphia, and encouraged commenters accusing her of promoting anorexia or bulimia to her fanbase to “mind their business.”

Despite Cooney’s previous claims, internet users are coming out in droves with concern for the YouTuber, begging those in her life to take action.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
