GABBIE Hanna was trending on Twitter for her feud with Rachel Oates.
The bad blood between the two has been ongoing but Gabbie had enough and turned to Twitter to put Rachel on blast.
What happened between Gabbie Hanna and Rachel Oates?
In 2017, Gabbie published her poetry book Adultolescence which became a New York Times Bestseller.
But, the book also received criticism from both social media users and reviewers, particularly from Rachel Oates, a book critic YouTuber.
Through the years Rachel has created various videos reviewing and often critiquing, Gabbie’s poetry going so far as to create a parody of Gabbie’s book.
Finally fed up Gabbie took to Twitter to address the hate stating, “Because I frankly don’t give a f**k anymore — I think it’s really lame that a bunch of non-creative, insecure, neurotypical people dragged my poetry for months for views on YouTube and TikTok instead of creating their own art.”
She elaborated, “I still can’t believe I wrote a funny, engaging, thematic poetry book about sexual assault, mortality, childhood abuse, mental illness and suicidal ideation as my first release—and all people cared to share was ‘link in bio’ and ‘family is relatives’.”
Gabbie eventually called Rachel out saying, “I also just wanna say that Rachel Oatmeal took the time to write a book from the perspective of a dog (since I write mine from the perspective of an abused child) to mock me, yet she’s still too much of coward to release under her own name. What a *loser* lmao.”
After posting the tweets to Instagram as well, Gabbie posted a video where she spoke directly to the camera labeling Rachel as “manipulative” and “narcissistic.”
How did Rachel Oates respond to Gabbie Hanna’s comments?
Rachel responded to the posts by resharing them to her account commenting, “Oh look, she’s creating drama again by tagging me in posts telling ME of all people, I ‘don’t understand neurodivergent brains’. It’s been a month since I reviewed any of her work, just accept the constructive criticism and write better.”
She continued on by sharing a DM she sent to Gabbie, which read, “Leave me out of your attention seeking games and go get some help please. Clearly you’re having some sort of breakdown again and I understand, I’ve been there too, but this won’t help. Please, just go speak to your friends of family and calm down.”
Rachel then posted a statement on her Instagram story defending herself saying, “I critiqued and analysed poetry. I never mocked the subject matter. I critiqued the quality of the writing. I parodied poor and lazy technique but never the subject matter.”
She ended her statement saying, “But I won’t comment on her behaviour anymore. I’ve said my piece. I stand by my work. She is completely misrepresenting me and now I’ve let people know, I won’t be commenting again.”
“I critique work, not people. Actions, not people. Poetry, not people.”
Who else joined into the drama?
Angelika Oles, a YouTuber popular for her commentary on other social media stars, joined into the drama when she posted on Twitter commenting, “I just think this is unnecessary.”
“Say your part about criticism/hate/whatever you want to call it, but multiple tweets calling someone abusive and a bully…while being obsessive and a bully back is an interesting way to go about things.”
Gabbie responded, “So standing up to a bully is bullying them? I’m the only person who’s supposed to sit back and allow people to exploit and harass me bc I defend myself I’m a bully. What are you? Shut the f**k up Angelika, get back to law school.”
The two went back and forth with Gabbie calling out Angelika saying, “This is that b***h in high school who draws on your yearbook photo to be an a**hole and laugh with her friends. Don’t delude yourself into thinking you’re anything more than a high school f***ing bully. Why are you involving yourself, attention seeker?”
Angelika came back at her retorting, “And you’re the ‘b***h in high school’ who made up rumours about people to gain social relevance then? How many of your story times were JUST about you and how many involved other people? How many also involved other people in the industry?”
