YouTuber Eugenia Cooney has announced that she will be taking a break from social media to 'work with her doctor', after an extended period of concern from her fans.
Fans had raised concerns after the creator appeared to be losing weight in a way that some felt was unhealthy, or even dangerous. Eugenia's latest Instagram post, in particular, attracted a large number of concerned comments from fans, who worried about Eugenia's low weight.
Similar comments were posted on her latest video, with fans and fellow creators alike urging Eugenia to seek professional help, for what they perceived to be an eating issue.
A previous hiatus from social media had even made some fans worry that she had died, but these rumours were unfounded.
Now, she's announced she will be taking a break from social media
Eugenia has never spoken publicly about her weight or anything related to it, but she posted a tweet on February 10th, saying:
"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."
