However, according to critics, her physical appearance leaves no doubt that something might be happening. The request made on change.org signals that the main concern is related to the audience who follows the channel. Most of the viewers are young girls between 12 and 21 years old. The petition states that Cooney is giving a “very bad example” to the audience which forms part of a group age prone to suffer from eating disorders.

There’s so many people in the comments super angry with me lately because of certain videos being made 🙁 I just want you guys to know that I’m never trying to hurt anyone or ever do anything wrong and I would never do that. I don’t ever encourage people to try to look like me or to look like anyone. I just try to tell people to be themselves and to be happy. I love you guys and I appreciate the people that support me so much you guys mean the world to me ????????
What do you think about her weight?
