Is Gabbie Hanna okay?

Gabbie posted a series of chaotic videos on her TikTok account in August 2022. A large majority of her videos were about religion and that seemed quite out of the character for the content creator.

One TikTok user wrote, “The problem with manic episodes is you feel great. Better than you’ve ever felt. She needs a family member, friend, to see her right now,” Another one commented, “Hey gabbie, I think it would be good to reach out to a loved one!! Spend some time with someone you love!!”

Has Gabbie Hanna been involved in any other controversies?

The answer to the above question is a big yes. The social media celebrity is no stranger to controversies and scandals. One of her very first controversies came in the year 2017 when she made a video about a former classmate who passed away due to drug overdose without consulting the girl’s family first.

Later on, Gabbie apologized to the family members of the girl in a follow-up video. When we talk about 2018, she promoted a “free” set of makeup brushes that required customers to pay $10 for shipping. Many people stated that the brushes were of poor quality and had begun to shed after the first use.

Rather than, putting forward an apology, Gabbie blamed the audience in her response video. In the clip, she said, “Are they these amazing, high-quality, can’t-even-believe-it, great brushes?” She further added, “No. I also never said they were. … I’m not sure what quality people were expecting when they paid $10 for 10 brushes.”

In the past, Gabbie got involved in another scandal when a content creator named Jessi Smiles alleged her ex-boyfriend Curtis Lepore raped her in 2013. Then, Smiles also went on to say that Hanna stayed friends and continued to collaborate with Curtis which resulted in many labeling her as a rape apologist.
