American YouTuber and Internet personality Eugenia Sullivan Cooney was given the name Colleen Cooney on July 27, 1994. She was born in Massachusetts and currently has residences in Los Angeles, California, and Greenwich, Connecticut.
She started out livestreaming on the streaming platform YouNow, and then in 2011, she launched a YouTube channel with more than 2 million members. Cooney’s material primarily consists of clothing hauls, beauty tutorials, cosplay, and daily life vlogs.
Life and career
On July 27, 1994, in Boston, Massachusetts, Colleen Cooney gave birth to Cooney. Several months after her birth, her initial name was changed to Eugenia.
Cooney didn’t have many friends growing up and experienced bullying frequently at school; as a result, she changed schools several times and started going to an online school after her freshman year of high school.
For a brief period in New York, Eugenia Cooney pursued modeling. Cooney chose to concentrate on her internet career instead of removing her online presence after being urged to do so and feeling overly restricted.
In order to establish her online profile, Cooney started live-streaming on the broadcasting platform YouNow in 2011. The following year, she launched her YouTube page.
It quickly gained popularity when she published her “How to Ratchetly Twerk” video on WorldStarHipHop in 2013. The combined views of her first three videos exceeded 7.5 million.
The majority of Cooney’s YouTube work consists of shopping hauls for apparel, vlogs about her daily activities, cosplay outfits, and cosmetics instructions.
As of August 2022, she had amassed over 400,000 followers on Twitch, where she started live streaming in 2018. She is renowned for her emo appearance, which is exemplified by her “extraordinarily long, dark hair, gothic lace dresses, and bold, multi-colored makeup looks.”
Is Eugenia Cooney still alive?
Yes, Eugenia Cooney frequently exhibits a highly apparent skeleton in her photos and videos posted on social media sites like Instagram and TikTok, which has sparked criticism and raised questions about her health.
Eugenia’s recent Instagram images, which appear to indicate that she is thinner than ever, have caused yet another wave of anxiety. Many were understandably interested in learning more about her overall health, given how thin she already was and her history of treatment for an eating issue.
Many admirers assume that Eugenia’s eating condition has resurfaced based on her Instagram and TikTok profiles.
Although many have previously advised her to get assistance due to how frighteningly thin she is, the most recent wave of comments on her photos has instead been centered on urging Instagram and other apps to remove her due to how these photographs may affect young girls who view them.
It is likely that Cooney has anorexia nervosa as an eating disorder. Critics contend that her writing promotes eating problems among viewers, which raises questions about her impact on her youthful followers.
Cooney is a well-known character in online “pro-ana” circles where her videos and pictures are cited as “thinspiration.”
Since viewers started voicing concern about her weight loss in 2015, numerous speculations regarding her health, mental state, and personal life have slowly arisen.
A Change.org petition to “Temporarily Ban Eugenia Cooney off of YouTube” gained 18,000 signatures and became popular in 2016, although it was eventually taken down for “violating community guidelines.”
Cooney responded to the petition by denying having a problem and asserting that she had no intention of having a negative influence.
