About Eugenia Cooney

Social media can allow creators to foster and develop supportive communities, but it can also be a harsh place filled with bullies and trolls. Eugenia Cooney experienced both sides of the internet over the course of her YouTube career, initially breaking into the scene for her gaming videos before discussions around her body, weight and health eventually led her to take a hiatus early in 2019. After a 5 month break, Eugenia came back in a big way, in collabs with Shane Dawson, opening up about why she left and why she’s ready to come back. Her video with Shane, "What I missed while I was in Rehab," received over 4.5M views and caused nearly 1M new subscribers to join her channel.
