How A Girl Named Amberlynn Reid Shows The Harsh Side Of Internet Culture

At the beginning of 2019 I was going through an extremely tough first trimester of pregnancy. I was throwing up multiple times a day, nauseous 24/7 and the only thing I ate for 4 months was white rice and fruit popsicles.

I had once heard about something called a “mukbang.” A mukbang is a video or live webcast in which someone consumes large amounts of food for an audience in front of a camera; they became popular in South Korea around 2010 before going mainstream later on.

Unfortunately mukbangs have contributed to the obesity epidemic, and show how unhealthy our relationship can be with food. Many people at an extremely unhealthy weight eat massive amounts of junk food in front of the camera, and many of the owners of these popular channels make a majority of their income from this.

Kim-Hae Jin, a Ph.D. candidate from Chosun University argued in “A Study Of Food Porn As a Sub-Culture-Centering On Internet Meokbang,” that people can vicariously satisfy their desire for food through watching a mukbang.

And, this is what I found myself doing after getting re-acquainted with my toilet bowl for the fourth time one day. I came across a girl named Amberlynn Reid who was eating a Subway sandwich in a video titled, “Subway Mukbang – It Gets Messy.”

What struck me as odd was that she started the video by choosing her sandwich online, and counting the calories because she was documenting her weight loss journey. “Well, good for her,” I thought to myself. I went back to the very first video she posted 5 years ago, and was stunned by the fact that she was hundreds of pounds lighter, meaning she had actually gained a huge amount of weight during this time.

And so, I found myself spiraling into the tornado of not only Amberlynn Reid’s Youtube channel, but apparently an entire community of people who, over the years, became fascinated with her while simultaneously hating her. I googled her name and found an entire Reddit thread discussing her, a petition to get her channel demonetized, and entire Youtube accounts dedicated to “reacting” to her videos. People like Zachary Michael, MichaelBePetty, and Charlie Gold do simple reactions to Amberlynn Reid videos, while channels like Katie W make edits of her videos to make fun of her.

Her life has been online for so long now, that watchers of her channel have seen her with three different girlfriends in three different states, referring to each one as an “era.” There was the “Krystal-era,” when she first started her vlogs, the “Destiny-era,” and the current “Becky-era.”

Unfortunately, in the five years since Amberlynn Reid started her channel, her weight has gone up to over 570 pounds and she struggles to walk more than 3 minutes at a time. Her failures have become fodder for hundreds of comments and conversations online, and at some points in her videos it seems as if she does things on purpose to garner more negative attention, thereby increasing her income.

Amberlynn Reid has become such a phenomenon that it’s hard to look away, and why is that? Is it simply the age-old idea of not being able to look away from a car crash? Watching someone slowly kill themselves by engaging in unhealthy eating habits on camera? Other similar channels include, Hungry Fatchick and Foodie Beauty.

Reading through comments on Amberlynn Reid’s channel or Reddit thread will reveal not only an unsavory side of humanity but a curious one as well. Throughout all of this, I felt a huge sense of sadness for this girl who has become somewhat of a target. Hundreds of thousands of people converse and debate about her as if she has her own reality show.

But, my question in reading everything about her and watching all the videos is this. Why?

I have a few theories:

1. Schadenfreude: The pleasure derived by someone from another person’s misfortune

Basically, when someone fails, it makes us feel better about ourselves, if you’re already insecure, even if the person failing is a friend.

2. Voyeurism: the practice of taking pleasure in observing something private, sordid, or scandalous

For the same reasons we watch reality t.v., we have the desire to see the private life of other people.

Dr. Jana Scrivani, licensed clinical psychologist, told Hello Giggles, “Every genre of television, but reality television in particular, gives us a false sense that we really know the people we see on the screen each week.”

3. It just plain makes you feel better about yourself

Scrolling through the comments section on Amberlynn Reid’s channel or the other various discussion groups about her, I saw multiple comments in which people claimed watching her made them feel better about their own lives. For some, it even motivated them to lose weight or accomplish another life goal.

In falling down another Youtube rabbit hole, I realized something about our internet culture that we often forget. It’s easy to look at people on a computer screen and feel like they aren’t real. But, there is a real person who could be suffering greatly behind the camera and those harsh comments are being read by them.

      I’ve been following her for a couple of years now and absolutely don’t disagree with the fact that she has many, many, many faults.

      What I wanted to express in the article was that there are a lot people who say very harsh things and it doesn’t show the best side of human beings. It gets to a point where it makes her critics as bad as she is, and the community surrounding the issue is becoming very toxic.

        I agree that some people have been overly harsh, and I’m absolutely against the small number of people wishing harm and even death upon her.

        HOWEVER, you didn’t do your research, and completely ignored the glaringly obvious reasons people despise Amberlynn. She lied about being raped and abused by her ex (who she has been exceptionally transphobic towards) and was revealed to be the abusive one, and she’s also abusive with her pets – have you seen how disgustingly obese her “precious” Twinkie is, and how she and Becky can’t be bothered to walk her properly or cut her nails?

        I commend you for bringing awareness to how cruel people can be online, it’s an appalling phenomenon, but Amberlynn isn’t a perfect victim/martyr for this cause.

        Unsure of how that makes the viewers as bad as she is. Maybe you should take another look at her, have you forgotten she lied about being raped? Purposely dead naming and misgendering her ex? The GoFundMe scam? Or the most recent, her lying about cancer. So how exactly are the viewers “just as bad”, again? Please explain.

        I think you’re right, in that no matter how much someone might seem to deserve harsh criticism, the people delivering that criticism need to be sure to remember it’s a real person on the other end. I enjoyed your article. Xx0

    Amber has done some awful things though. And most of the comments are anger and frustration at the lies she tells and the untrue facts she spouts as though there’s no doubt.

    This was a well written article I just hope to god amber doesn’t find it. I don’t comment on her videos and I really want her to turn it all around but she grasps on to anything that helps her feel like a victim as it’s an excuse not to try. I’ve been there, but not with food so I sort of understand and I don’t want that because she will continue to gain more weight.

    There are terrible things like the abuse of animals, the constant lying, falsely accusing an ex of rape, those things are pretty much unforgivable. But beyond that, I still watch her because as much I don’t like her because of her actions, I REALLY want her to succeed, like, really.

    There are some awful, nasty, offensive comments she receives, but I’ve read through them and MOST of them are just people calling out her lies, frustration at her repeating the same cycle and telling her what to do to lose weight.

    I don’t excuse the nasty comments, but, anyone who uploads to a platform like YouTube is aware you’re putting yourself out there and people get to comment on it. If you don’t like that, want that or can’t handle that, then just… Don’t do it? She has a choice in all of this too and has this whole time. The blame isn’t on the commenters. It’s amber’s doing and it’s only amber it really affects. I’m still hoping everyday she will wake up having had some sort of epiphany and we just get to watcher her get happier and healthier everyday.

      I actually watched the entire Charlie Gold reaction live (when Amber was supposed to post her August 31 announcement) and Charlie made some really great points.

All they do is hate on anyone at all who has a problem with ALR, Chantal, or the rest of them. Negz is basically the ringleader who profits off these other channels with his superchats and donations. The irony to all this is that they themselves go out of their way to either fawn all over them (the way GainingGround lavishes over Chantal) or screech and attack the people that criticize- I will repeat that- criticize the big girls for not doing the right thing for themselves.

Her having done terrible things is not a fucking excuse and her being a YouTuber doesn’t mean she wants to get called a fat ugly bitch all the time.

    Amber Reid is a malignant narcissist who has falsely accused others of rape. She manipulates and lies like you and I breathe air. Nobody dislikes her because she is fat–when she actually does try to lose weight, she’s lauded. People hate her because she is a loathsome person. Amber’s situation isn’t the dark side of the internet, it’s normal people reacting to a horrible person in the only way they can–the comments.

      If that were true, the comments she receives would be centered solely on her actions or behavior. In reality, the vast majority of comments I see being lobbed at her are ones mocking her for her weight. Nicknames like “Hamberlynn” aren’t born of some frustration at her false rape accusations, that comes later when the people need some convenient excuse for why they’re gawking at a fat girl eating food on camera. After people start digging up dirt on her.

      I’m not defending her actions, clearly she’s done reprehensible things, but none of her actions are related to her weight, they’re related to a repulsive personality. You’d recognize that if you were honest with yourselves.

    excellent piece! I’d also like to mention #4

    4. Ironic motivation / Reverse inspiration

    AL’s videos are VERY popular among people suffering from; obesity, concurrent food addictions, and eating disorders (both overeating and restrictive Disorders)

    On one hand— people struggling with obesity, food addiction, b.e.d, emotional/compulsive overeating etc use her transformation for shock value. In the sense of being “scared straight” or utilizing as some type of invivo exposure therapy because AL’s downward spiral is their greatest fear. It seems watching her videos has made them confront their own excuses for their constant weight gain, made them confront the horrible traumas they’ve been through, and all together has caused them to seek out professional dietary help and psychological care to get their weight and lives under control. Like many trauma victims who suffer from obesity they have had failed attempts before but apparently watching AL has helped them stay on track.

    On the other hand, people with restrictive EDNOS/ufed and anorexia also like AL’s videos. 1 is for the reason of vicariously living through all the food she eats and the second is their fears of weight gain/fatness is triggered in a highly specific way by her transformation over the years. This gives them increased motivation to reject foods and thus they don’t have to deal with the feelings of “after eating anxiety” once they finish eating.

    No one deserves to be bullied but I believe majority of her commenters are sincerely frustrated with the lies and excuses she makes. It doesn’t help that she has been gaining weight and rarely follows through with advice and help. As much as I want to see her succeed in her weight-loss journey, it is clear to me that she isn’t going to get better without serious intervention. At this point her viewers are literally paying her to self-harm until she dies from her failing health. It isn’t like no one sees her as a person. Her actions and her inconsistencies painted her a manipulative, compulsive liar. It is hard to be sympathetic to someone who ignore every chance to get help. We are mad because she isn’t improving. We are upset because she lies to make herself feel better. Most of us don’t want to sugar-coat it anymore. She is dying and we are one of the few trying to slap some reality. Enough of “woe is me” and start doing something about it.

She will be the one who dies from it in the end, and it’s really sad…I get why people are frustrated, and I’ve had my fair share of frustration with her… but I just can’t bring myself to hate her.

      At the end of the day, no one should be giving Amberlynn any attention whatsoever. She does nothing good for herself, and she especially does nothing good for her viewers. I wish people would stop supporting her by watching her videos or commenting in her comment section. She has admitted in the past that she thrives off of drama. And she doesn’t need to say it, it shows. She is an awful person. She creates a very toxic energy on her channel and I got sucked into that and it was when I stopped watching her channel that I felt a major weight lifted off my channel and a truckload I’d hate removed from my heart. I will never go back to her channel. She wants people to feel as miserable as her and it’s sad. I just hope that she will be removed from YouTube soon.

    Let’s get one thing straight- No one hates her because she is fat. They hate her because like many said before me, she lies, plays the victim, abuses people and animals, has severe mental issues, and will not listen to anyone regarding health and help. She has been given so many opportunities in the past to seek help and refuses it all. She spends her money on Walmart and Torrid hauls, rather than get herself some insurance and check herself into inpatient treatment, which she desperately needs. She is irresponsible with her money, that’s 100% true. She gets paid and it’s gone, all to crap that she never wears again. She is seriously SICK, even SHE’S not denying that, but she doesn’t get help, doesn’t want it, claims she can do this all by herself, but she cannot and she will DIE. This is all a joke to her. She gets money for eating and shopping, people who watch her are paying her to kill herself. She knows how the system works, she knows exactly what she’s doing, and that’s milking the system, sucking us in, and making us pay to keep her fat. She is forever using bait titles for her videos to keep the cycle going. And yet her subs keep going up, her views keep going up, and the people watching are the people claiming to hate her the most. They are just as sick as she is. Why are people STILL WATCHING HER??? STOP!

    I feel like in cycling through feeling bad for her situation and then watching her do something awful and manipulative and going “nevermind” time and time again. I want her to get better, but I don’t feel too bad that she doesn’t. And I think it’s that disappointment that grips people. I think deep down we all want her to prove us wrong but we know she won’t.

And so what that her reaction channels make money off her. She makes money by exploiting herself, her health, her audience, and everyone in her life.
      Her comments aren’t bullying, they are commensurate to her behavior.
      She could also leave youtube, and simply focus on getting herself healthy. She chooses not to do that because she is unwilling to let go of the easy money of eating on camera.

Amberlynn has sowed the seeds of hate in her youtube channel by her actions and words alone. People started watching her to help and support her, but she has deceived her loyal supporters to a point that has turned bitter in her own community. People do not watch her for the 3 reasons you write about, and you should have dug deeper for the truth.

      Or maybe all the nasty comments she gets are just some good old fashioned karma for all the terrible things she’s said and done to others. A lot of the terrible things she’s done are quite serious….the false rape/physical abuse allegation when in reality it was her doling out the physical abuse, the neglectful treatment of her animals, the numerous racist and transphobic statements she’s made over the years, the list just goes on and on and on. You can’t treat people the way she does and not expect it to come back around on you. She wants the hate because it means people are giving her the only thing other than food that she desperately craves and that’s attention. Good or bad, she couldn’t care less and long as people are focusing on her. Everytime that attention dies down, she constructs a new drama to bring it right back. I’m sure the money she receives from it is a huge incentive as well. So yeah, I have a really hard time mustering anything pity for someone like that. Some of the comments probably do take things too far and cross the line but she makes herself a very easy target…she’s just not a good person. Seeing terrible people fuck with each other just doesn’t bother me as much as it probably should.

    I started watching Amberlynn after a 3 year period in which I was repeatedly forced into the hospital (due to anorexia), and I found it maddening that someone like her was able to eat on camera and face no consequences. As time went on, and I got mentally healthier, I realized how sad it was that nobody in her entire life ever cared about her. While she is a completely vile person now, I wonder how much that could have been averted if she had had at least ONE person who forced her to do something about her slow suicide (like my psychiatrist did).
    It is a shame we will never know. Apparently, eating yourself to death is applauded.

      She used to talk about how she lost 89 pounds, that was when she was living with Krystal and her parents. The parents forced her to exercise and locked the fridge so she had no way to overeat. So there was one time in her life when people wouldn’t allow her to just eat herself to death and do puzzles all day.

    I used to be an OG supporter now haydur from the “krystal era” 🤣

    I initially started to dislike her when I realized she has a superior complex… went all downhill from there. The reason why people hate her now is because she’s done some pretty vile things & never explained or apologized.

    The worst for me was accusing her ex of Rape, she names & shames her ex in a video ignoring gender pronouns, playing victim etc. Her ex later came out with a response video that seemed more detailed & evident than her alleged claim. She then went on to write a poem – quote ” R A P E, rain and petals eavesdrop, I used the wrong word”.

    Here is a list of reasons people dislike her:
    – accusing ex of rape
    – gofundme cancer scam
    – joking about suicide
    – racist
    – abuses her animals
    – using mental illness at her convenience
    The list goes on…

    Take from that what you will 🤷🏽‍♀️

    girl… don’t feel sorry for her. she treats her current girlfriend horribly, constantly compares her to her exes and is just not a good partner. she also knows that when she does her trolling videos and mukbangs, it brings her more views (money) than when she does anything related to weight loss. why? because she initiated this whole thing. she has a good addition which she acknowledges, and she noticed that when she filmed her binges and breakdowns, she got more attention and views. she KNOWS what she’s doing!! she uses people, like her current and ex girlfriends, for caretakers and a place to stay. you can see the tension and how awkward it is in her roommate eric’s vlogs. so. i believe all of us need to sign that petition, because at this point, anyone who watches her videos is just enabling her. she IS going to die. all this “oh she’s being bullied, body positivity” blah blah kumbaya bullshit is contributing to her demise. if you REALLY feel sorry for her, sign that petition and share it, delete this article, and never watch another video.

    The article seems really under-researched. I haven’t been watching ALR for long, but a lot longer than the couple of months of research that was put in by the author, and it’s become incredibly clear that people don’t like her because of who she is as a person and it isn’t about her weight. She could be 125lbs and still be getting this backlash because of how she abusive and manipulative she is (both in her personal life with the people around her, as evidenced in several videos) and also to her viewers.

    No one likes amberlynn reid because of her disgusting personality. She accused someone of raping her and even misjudged their gender. She said the N word. She scammed alot of people with the Gofundme.

    People who live through childhood trauma, such as Amberlynn has shared with her “audience” are often plagued with IR (insulin resistance) due to high cortisol levels and adrenal burn out. She is most likely an undiagnosed T2 diabetic, hence the darkened knuckles on her hands. Type 2 diabetes can effect a person mentally, emotionally, and in a physiological manner. Few if any of the video responders who spew vitriolic, hateful, judgmental opinions have any knowledge concerning the actual science behind weight issues. Please people, take the precious time your spending being mean and evil towards a person who obviously needs a medical intervention and educate yourself on the topics of IR, T2 Diabetes. The trauma from Amberlynn’s childhood facilitated a breeding ground for her health issues as an adult.

      Literally everything you said is untrue. Insuline resistance is caused by fat. Being dibetic doesn’t make you mean and she is responsible for everything she does.

      And to other commentors defending this awful person: I think Amber just shows that being fat doesn’t automatically make you a good person everyone should just praise for effort and feel sorry for. I think Amber just showed people how many many many bad decisions a person has to make to become super mobidly obese and it doesn’t happen overnight. It basically shows that obese people should take responsibility for their lives and stop blaiming everyone and everything else for their ADDICTION. I think everyone from fat acceptance movement should watch Amber, seriously.

        And I get that she had a bad childhood but she constantly refuses to acknowledge her problems and just continues her toxic behaviour. She is so mean to Becky that no bad childhood justifies that. Take fucking reaponsibility. There are many people with horrible childhood stories who go to therapy but that means effort, something she just hates.

        No, you’re just ignorant. Do some research on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), and their impact on mental and physical health outcomes in adulthood. People who experience one or more major traumatic events in early childhood have an increased likelihood of developing insulin resistance and T2D, mood disorders, addiction, obesity, hypertension, and a variety of other physical health problems that lead to early death. These are facts, not opinions. Dr. Nadine Burke Harris (Surgeon General of California) has done excellent research on this topic, and she wrote THE book on this subject.
        Educate yourself before being so bold to tell someone else that they’re wrong…As if you’d even know.

    I think people really enjoy hate 🙁 If you are part of a stigmatized group you are more likely to be a part of that hate, and right now it is still socially acceptable to stigmatize fat people. You can pretend to care about human rights and prejudice and still despise fat people.

    Most of us hold this prejudice to some extent, you even said “good for her” when she said she was counting calories, even though counting calories is more likely to give you an eating disorder than it is to improve your health.

    I don’t know if she is a horrible person or a wonderful person, but I don’t think people would get off on despising her if she wasn’t a fat woman. I think they would very quickly have forgotten her and moved on.

    If you really wanted to address and discuss the nasty side of human nature, you should’ve discussed cancel culture instead of Amberlynn Reid. It’s actually more relevant to today’s society than a 600lbs troll.

    I’ve read the comments and everything people say she’s done just makes her sound like the average stan twitter user. And yet, I have to dig to actually find out what she actually DID that was so horrible because there are miles and miles of comments and groups that don’t talk about anything besides how fat she is. Imagine that.
    Also, bragging about being from Kiwifarms isn’t doing you guys any favors.
    I don’t like ANYONE in this scenario. I don’t like Reid but I also loathe all of you little drama-chasers who have a million excuses to justify gaping at this very public, very internet-famous fat girl and laughing at her in the comments. Some of you sound just as manipulative as she is, or you’re well on your way. Bless your fucking hearts.

    So bullying her is justified since she has flaws and does not meet everyone’s expectations. Every remark I read is harsh and disparaging, with the intention of bringing her down. People have devoted channels to mocking and condemning every action she makes. And they profit from these platforms, ultimately profiting from her bullying. It’s repulsive human behavior.

    The comments are better than the article about the overweight girl who abuses her girlfriends.
