19-year-old YouTuber Marina Joyce has amassed a pretty respectable following because fans can't get enough of her optimistic, sunshine-y demeanor, and of course her love of glitter. But recently, a stark contrast in her personality has Joyce's fans worried that something serious is going on that she can't talk about on YouTube.
People started becoming concerned after Marina's bizarre behavior in the following video. Throughout, Marina seems to be looking off camera at someone else, is rambling, and seems generally very disconnected.
At one point, as Marina is modeling the back of a dress, she pauses extra long and reveals a large bruise on the back of her arm.
Another recent video has been concerning for fans as well. Marina is usually fairly grounded, but now seems to be rambling and at times gets a bit incoherent. Of course, that could also be because she is a 19-year-old who is really excited to talk about eyeshadow and stuff.
Fans have been running rampant with possible explanations and theories as to why Marina is acting differently. Some theorize that she is on drugs. Others suggest a mental breakdown, while the most creative say she's being held hostage. Of course, most people are just name calling and saying that she is faking it all for attention because, you know, internet.
Many fans have even gone so far to prove their conspiracy theories with videos and screen grabs.
Throughout, Marina has maintained that she is perfectly fine and that fans have nothing to worry about.
She ended up livestreaming a video to assure fans that she was okay, even though there was some weird behavior in that as well that hurt her story more than it helped it.
She also uploaded this picture to Instagram, but made the caption #savemarinajoyce, which is a weird thing for a person who says they don't need to be saved to do.
To make things even more bizarre, on Tuesday Joyce tweeted her location to her followers and told them to come to meet up with her (YouTubers hold meet ups occasionally, so even though this is probably not smart, it is not uncommon).
However, other YouTube stars urged people to stay home.
She ended up calling the whole thing off.
Eventually, police got involved and confirmed that Marina doesn't seem to be in any danger.
Marina continues to tell fans that she is totally okay, even though some choose not to believe it. Whether or not there is anything to this story or if fans are just letting their imaginations get the better of them, this is going to make a great episode of Law & Order someday.
