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.

Dr Disrespect responds to backlash after roasting mobile gaming

Legendary streamer Dr Disrespect responded to all the backlash he received after comparing his monstrous gaming setup to that of a mobile gamer’s.

On November 26, the Two-Time made waves on Twitter after he described his $200,000 multi-PC setup and sarcastically asked how people can take mobile gaming seriously.

Now, the back-to-back Blockbuster video game champion responded to everyone who was upset with him claiming mobile gaming wasn’t a serious thing.

In a comedic skit, Doc pretended to play a game on an old flip phone and was clearly struggling.

“Come on, peak. Oh, I would have killed you if I had a better connection. That’s bullsh*t,” he acted before realizing the camera was rolling, causing him to slowly flip his phone shut. “How long have we been live?”

While this opening segment was played for jokes, the theme carried on with Doc talking to ZLaner about the backlash he was receiving.

“I’m getting a lot of heat these days on Twitter. I just explained what my setup was in comparison to a mobile gaming setup,” he said. “I shouldn’t even say anything anymore.”

To this, ZLaner inquired about what exactly Doc had said and if he was implying that mobile gaming was a “laughing joke.”

“Again, I just explained what my setup was,” he doubled down. “And then with all that said, do I take someone playing on a phone seriously? I mean, it was just a question.”

Furthermore, when 100 Thieves star Rachell ‘Valkyrae’ Hofstetter tried to get Doc to participate in a big Among Us stream, he declined, saying it “looks worse than a mobile game.”

While the YouTube streamer may be downplaying his remarks a touch, phrasing them as “just a question,” it didn’t stop some prominent voices from speaking up.

As Dexerto reported, things reached a boiling point when CoD Mobile player Luke ‘iFerg’ Fergie challenged Doc to a $100,000 1v1.

Dr Disrespect has been seeing success on YouTube.

This wasn’t the only challenge issued either with Elijah ‘Hawksnest’ Jackson offering a $10,000 wager against the Two-Time.

Dr Disrespect didn’t respond to either of the two challenges issued. Either way, it seems like this feud with the mobile gaming community is far from over.
