Zoella Finally Responds To Advent Calendar Backlash: "I'm Just As Let Down"

Postado Novembro 15, 2017

Tweets from 2010, 2011 and 2012 have been uncovered from the YouTuber's official Twitter account, in which she used offensive language.

One, posted in 2010, said: "I find it amusing when gay men spit...it's like they're trying to be a bit macho but never works..."

"Another post - also deleted - read: "'Why are these clothes so expensive?' because they're designer you tramp, that there in your hand is a dress worth over £2000. She should have "kept her legs shut" excuse my choice of words haha #vulgar'.

However, it is still unconfirmed if the 27-year-old sent them herself.

The Lifestyle Advent Calendar listening states that it contains bauble, confetti, purse, candle 130g, cookie cutter x 2, jotter pad, key ring, pen, room spray 30ml, stickers and votive.

Parents have slammed the calendar created by the beauty vlogger as "tat" and "massively overpriced".

"Don't get me wrong, I adore Zoella's videos but it breaks my heart a little seeing that she's charging £50 for an advent calendar".

The calendar is being sold at Boots and has so far received an overall rating of one and a half stars.

In case you missed it, beauty YouTuber Zoella - full name Zoe Sugg - has caused anger amongst her young fans and their parents this week after her Christmas advent calendar with only twelve days retailed at £50.00.

Another said: "All the drama over the Zoella advent calendar is rather ridiculous to be honest. However, the pricing and in store promotional strategy of the collection, including the calendar, is at the control of third parties and is not set by Zoe".

In response to the outrage, Boots released a statement saying they're "sorry to hear that the price of the Zoella 12 Days of Christmas Advent Calendar has disappointed a number of customers" and that they "always listen to feedback".

But the damage was already done for many reviewers on the Boots website.

The lifestyle themed advent calendar features 12 windows filled with exclusive treats, including scented candles, accessories, stationery and baking tools.

While Boots have also addressed the pricing issue, explaining that from November 16 the calendar will be on offer for half the price at £25.
