All round wonderful human being Louise Pentland got in some hot water on Twitter last night after fans attacked her for leaving a meet and greet earlier than planned. However, this is 100% completely incorrect and the trolls ended up getting incredibly rude towards the YouTuber who tried to defend herself – one fan actually directly called her a ‘glitter cow’.
Louise alerted her Twitter following to the dispute after she quote retweeted a message that blasted her for leaving a singing in HMV before she had seen all of her paying fans. Whilst the original tweet has been deleted, the main argument can be gauged from further conversations Louise had with the unhappy fans – “Useless YouTuber @louisepentland meet and greet but didn’t get to meet or greet she did one after less than an hour”.
Louise responded by pointing out that “we stay until the line is completely finished. The signing began at 5.30. I’m sorry you were so late”. A few more responses later and it looks as though the angry fan was blaming Louise for the traffic they got stuck in, meaning that they arrived to the meet and greet long after it was finished… to find that Louise had also left. This riled other Sprinklerino’s who flooded to defend their favourite YouTuber.
Louise points out that the late fans could have called HMV before to warn them that they would be late because she’d “have waited” for them until they arrived. The conversation then descends into the angry fans asking Louise how much money she made and ran off with from all the wristbands sold (which BTW, Louise points out that she ‘doesn’t get paid for signings”) in addition to calling her a ‘glitter cow”‘.
