Jenna Marbles Apologizes After People Criticize Her for Mistreating Fish

By  | 

If there’s one thing we know for sure, it’s that Jenna Marbles is one of the BIGGEST animal lovers on the planet. The YouTube star is basically obsessed with her pets — three dogs and a hamster — and simply wanted to expand her family by adding some fish to the mix. Unfortunately, after she posted a video that showed her and boyfriend Julien Solomita buying the new pets, she realized that she wasn’t fully informed about the proper way to care for exotic animals.

Basically, the pet store employee gave her the wrong information about the tank, water, filtration system, etc., that the fish needed, so she purchased the wrong things. Almost immediately, the 31-year-old went into crisis mode. She began reading everyone’s comments and started looking into ways she could rectify her errors, but ultimately decided to remove the video and find new homes for the little creatures.

While Jenna is known for putting out new videos “every Wednesday slash Thursday,” she decided to post one today that explained everything in further detail and included the SINCEREST of apologies. The apology vid also included the OG upload that got her into trouble in the first place as a way to show other people what NOT to do when thinking about getting fish.

She explained, “I’d like to make this into something where people can have a better idea of what to do in the future, because I made a mistake and it was my fault and I feel terrible for it.”

“I didn’t sleep Wednesday through Thursday because it was completely destroying…I was just sobbing all day Thursday,” she said.

Jenna acknowledged that some people may think this whole thing is “ridiculous,” but she genuinely feels terrible that she blindly went in to get fish without doing proper research. You can watch the full video below. It’s almost 50 minutes long, so you can be sure she explains everything.
