Her exit comes after some fans asked her to address several skits from the past, including one in which she appeared to be in blackface as part of a Nicki Minaj impression in 2011.

She explained that there were “things in her past she’s not proud of,” and that she is “moving on from [her] channel.”

“I don’t know if that’s forever, I don’t know how long it’s going to be. I want to make sure the things that I put into the world are not hurting anyone.”

“I’ve tried my best to grow up and to be a better person,” striving to “make fun content, inclusive content, things that don’t offend people or upset people.”

“I’m sorry if any of [my old content] holds any nostalgia for you, but I’m literally not trying to put out negative things into the world. I think there was a time when having all of my old content exist on the internet showed how much I have grown up as a person, which I’m very proud of. I think now it’s hard for that content to exist at all because I think people watch it and don’t bother to look at when it was posted or care about what path I took to get to where I am. It offends them now, and, if that’s the case, where people will watch something and be offended now, I don’t want it to exist…I just don’t want anyone to feel upset about anything. I don’t want to contribute to that…I don’t want someone to watch something and feel hurt or offended now for any reason at all.”

She also went into detail about particularly offensive videos from her past.

This YouTube star also said she was moving on from her channel earlier in the year.
