Jenna Marbles, a longtime YouTube star, has announced that she is leaving the social media platform.

The announcement came in the form of an 11-minute video Thursday in which Marbles – whose real name is Mourey – apologized for various videos she had made in the past.

“I did my best to grow up and be a better person. And first and foremost, I want everyone to know that I have always been a two-way street, and that every time you criticize me and tell me that you would like me to do better or do something different thing, that I always try to do that. “Said Mourey, 33.

In the video, Mourey went through a handful of videos she created and published in the past to apologize for them.

Among the videos she discussed, there was one showing an impression of Nicki Minaj, with a black face.

Mourey insisted that it was not his “intention to blackface”.

“I want to tell you how incredibly sorry I am if I offended you by posting this video or making this impression,” she said. “It was never my intention. It’s not OK. It is shameful. It’s horrible. I wish this was not part of my past. ”

Next, Mourey played a clip from a video called “Bounce That D-k,” in which she donned a straw hat and fake mustache in the style of the fictional character Fu Manchu.

“Hey, Ching Chong Wing Wong, shake your King Kong Ding Dong,” said Mourey wearing the costume in the 2011 video. “Sorry, it was racist, I’m bad at rap songs. ”

She called the video “horrible” and “inexcusable” and said she “didn’t need to exist”.

Again, Mourey apologized for the offending viewers “so, now, every time.” ”

Then she tackled a video that she said “fell on an incredibly slutty shame”, in which she declaimed the women who “slept”.

“Right now, I just can’t exist on this channel,” said Mourey. “I hope I have removed everything that could upset someone and I hope you know that this is just not my intention.

She continued, “I think I’m just going to switch from this channel for now. I don’t know if it’s forever, I don’t know how long it’s going to last, I just want to make sure that the things I give birth don’t hurt anyone. ”
