“Hi, guys! I appreciate the concern,” Cooney wrote. “I’m taking a break from social media and voluntarily working on this with my doctor privately. Please respect that.”

Cooney’s Tweet was met with felicitations from her fans and critics alike, with even Drama Alert’s Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem wishing the YouTuber well.

Cooney’s Tweet follows an outpouring of concern spurred by her Kingdom Hearts cosplay video in late January, which showed a dramatic change in her already skeletal appearance – leading to rumors and speculation that the YouTuber was dear death.

Some viewers even blamed major platforms like Instagram and YouTube for being complicit in what appeared to be self-harm from a severe eating disorder, while others feared that Cooney’s videos could convince young fans to follow her example.

Following the release of Cooney’s cosplay video, YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg urged his fans to send their support to her, prompting a flood of positive comments underneath the video in question.

IRL Twitch streamer Jinny was left shocked after two men tried to sell her drugs while she toured the city of Hamburg in Germany.

Jinny has grown quite a following thanks in part to her IRL traveling antics where the Korean streamer routinely has odd adventures. Her trips have resulted in her befriending waitresses at a Texas Hooters, being attacked by wild deer in Denmark, and even setting her backyard on fire.

Now, in her most recent trip in Germany, the streamer found herself in quite an awkward position as she was offered drugs during an October 7 broadcast.

While talking to viewers, a random man suddenly began talking to her in broken English.

“You’re lucky to be in Deutschland. My ganja is the best,” he said. “You get three for five.”

It’s unclear exactly what units of measurement the man was selling three of for five Euros, but ganja translates to marijuana or weed. The incident really shocked the IRL streamer who had no idea what he was talking about.

“I don’t speak German,” she stated as he and another man conversed in the language.

Jinny’s chat warned her the man was selling drugs.

“Do you need ganja?” the man asked in English.

“What is ganja?” Jinny wondered. “Iguana?”

Eventually, Jinny looked at her chat and saw that her viewers were spamming translations and explaining how he was trying to sell her drugs – something she wanted no part of.

“I don’t need ganja. It’s okay,” she laughed and went on her way. “That was very random. Do I look like I smoke weed? Uh, maybe.”

Amusingly, the streamer went on to explain that she was very confused and seriously thought the man was trying to sell her an iguana.

“I thought he said ‘do you want to buy an iguana,’” she chuckled. “Why would I want to buy an iguana all of a sudden?”

Luckily, Jinny wasn’t forced into buying any drugs or reptiles during her encounter, but it just goes to show that even when a camera is rolling, weird stuff happens on a regular basis.
