YouTuber and internet personality Eugenia Cooney has been a subject of controversy for some time, due to her near-skeletal appearance that many concerned fans have pinned on an eating disorder – but a recent photo from Cooney has made a considerable change in public opinion.

A photo of Cooney was posted to her hairstylist’s Instagram account on May 31, showing a drastic change in the YouTuber’s appearance.

While the picture is merely a headshot of Cooney, she appears to be in markedly better condition, prompting fans across the internet to sound off in congratulations for what seems to be a major recovery from body dysmorphia.

“Eugenia Cooney is doing really good right now,” Drama Alert’s Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem wrote of the matter.

“Those new pics of Eugenia Cooney made my heart happy, wow,” a fan Tweeted.

These photos follow a dramatic tipping point for the YouTuber in early February, after her Kingdom Hearts cosplay video attracted intense scrutiny due to the emaciated state of her body.

Fans were quick to reach out in concern for Cooney, who assured fans that “everything is fine,” despite her appearance.

Her story garnered even more attention a few days later, thanks to YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg, who encouraged his fans to send her positive comments in an episode of ‘Pew News.’

“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.”

Members of Kjellberg’s “nine-year-old army” flooded to Cooney’s cosplay video in response, leaving a slew of encouraging messages for the YouTuber in light of her apparent struggle.

Cooney later posted a Tweet on the subject, claiming that she was privately working with a doctor on her health and taking a break from social media.

While Cooney has yet to make an official return to the internet, fans are hopeful that the recent photos denote a successful recovery for the YouTuber, who has denied having an eating disorder throughout her career on the platform.

Dixie D’Amelio tears up over painful nose surgery aftermath in BTS vlog

Dixie D’Amelio has finally released the behind the scenes vlog of her nose surgery from back in September, with the uncomfortable after-effects leaving the much loved TikTok star emotional.

Charli and Dixie D’Amelio have taken the TikTok world by storm, very much as a family unit. The sisters, along with their parents, have spread their content wings past TikTok, and into YouTube, the podcast world, and have even dabbled in beauty.

The youngest sister Charli grossed fans out in August when she released a rather gruesome video of her own nose surgery to help fix her breathing, showing a very detailed look of the doctor scraping out pieces of cartilage and septum.

About a month following Dixie received the same procedure in order to fix breathing problems that had accumulated thanks to similar injuries that Charli received. Dixie even had to call out fans who claimed she was ‘copying’ Charli for getting surgery, despite the fact that the procedure was not cosmetic.

Dixie postponed her nose surgery because she wanted to continue playing sports.

After waiting for over a month, Dixie has now finally unveiled the behind the scenes vlog of the lead up to her surgery on her YouTube channel, and it’s safe to say it wasn’t a particularly fun experience.

She included videos of the consultations between her and her surgeon, with him demonstrating that that main point of the surgery was to correct a twist in the septum that was caused by sporting incidents that led to a whopping 14 concussions.

The immediate after-effects were clearly uncomfortable, Dixie saying “I cried right after surgery because I wanted to go home so bad. And I just wanna snort, I wanna breathe in so deep but there’s cotton on my nose. And my forehead’s itchy but it’s also numb.”

In a slightly delirious video taken in the mirror, Dixie said “I keep crying and I don’t know why,” but even after an uncomfortable looking cough, continues to sing “keep your head up, it’s bedtime.”

While the star seemed in relatively light spirits initially, all things considered, things quickly took a turn for the worst the next day, when she said that “I had such a rough night trying to sleep.”

“My nose doesn’t hurt at all, but I have an awful migraine, and I get really bad migraines, so that’s just where all my pain is right now.” The TikTok star also admitted that she “couldn’t stop crying last night over my thoughts.”

However, now that time has passed since the surgery, Dixie looks to be in better spirits than ever, much to her fans’ relief. In the description of her vlog, she also thanked her surgeon Dr. Raj Kanodia for “doing such an amazing job and making me feel so comfortable from beginning to end!”

Dixie D’Amelio is a TikTok influencer with over 42 million followers on the app. She and her younger sister Charli D’Amelio have garnered a combined follower count of a whopping 137 million followers.
