Popular Youtube star Eugenia Cooney addressed rumors of her death from anorexia in a February tweet. Fans of her account at Venice expressed relief that she is getting help.

Cooney, who has 1.5 million subscribers on Youtube, came to fame when she posted the video, “My Mom Turns Me PREPPY,” in February 2016, which currently has 22.3 million views. Cooney, 24, is best known for her fashion and beauty-related content and caught audience’s attention with her emo looks and extremely skinny figure.

Her last video, which she posted about a month ago in which Cooney cosplayed characters from Kingdom Hearts, the popular video game, had fans noticing that she looked significantly skinnier than she did in most of her videos. Many worried about her health and well-being

Most recently, Cooney tweeted out to fans that she was taking a break from social media and Youtube as she is privately visiting a doctor.

In her Feb. 10 tweet, Cooney stated, “hi guys! I appreciate the concern. I’m taking a break from social media and voluntarily working on this with my doctor privately. Please respect that.”

“It’s good that she finally got help but I feel like it was way later than it should’ve been,” says junior Shelby Coleman.

Cooney has been attacked with anorexia rumors since she started her channel back in 2011 and has denied them multiple times. However, it seems like she has finally decided to start getting medical help for her suspected eating disorder.

“I’m proud that she’s finally receiving help, it’s sad though that it took this long and after so much struggle,” says junior Evan Rocha.

Hopefully in the near future, Cooney will be able to get the help she needs and get back to making content her fans adore.

    I just Googled “Eugenia Cooney” and looked under News to see this posted 1 minute ago. I would love to see any updates on her, anything at all, even to just be reassured that she’s even still alive. I have a sad feeling in the pit of my chest, but I am sincerely hoping she is getting the help she has needed for some time now.

    I Google her every now and then to make sure that she hasn’t died yet.

    She was never attacked with rumors. It was concern of the people who were watching her vanishing. Dear Eugenia, wahtever you are doing, I hope that you have help at your side. You are strong, you can make it out of the lethal eating disorder.
    Stay strong, !!!

    Tired of people saying she was attacked. Expressing concern for having to watch someone starve themselves on camera for years is not an attack, it’s a plea to help the person. Her family should have stepped in years ago to stop this instead of enabling her. The constant denials by Eugenia did not help. The doctors TV series even covered her anorexia and she refused DR Phils offer for help. I hope she is getting help and I hope it’s not too late for her damaged organs.

    I’m pretty sure it was the twerking video is what made her famous 😂

    Hope she’s doing alright
