Zoella Addresses Controversy Surrounding Her Advent Calendar

Source JaackMaate

The first deleted post from 2010 reads: 'I find it amusing when gay men spit... it's like they're trying to be a bit macho but never works...'

Another, also dated from 2010 says: "Why are these clothes so expensive" because they're designer you tramp, that there in your hand is a dress worth over £2000.

The tweet from 2011 says: "Why did that fat chav go and stand next to him?"

The tweets were published in the Metro, and it remains unclear whether the they were written by the vlogger herself.

An unidentified woman in another post was told she should "keep her legs shut".

Zoella - YouTube sensation and beauty blogger - has launched a Christmas advent calendar called the Zoella 12 Days of Christmas Advent Calendar.

We take a look at the hottest babes to take part in the famous X Factor.

Dead In Shooting Near Northern California School
Enloe Hospital has received four patients: three students and one adult, all in unknown conditions, a hospital official said. He said the gunman was a neighbor and had "been shooting a lot of bullets lately, hundreds of rounds, large magazines".

In her latest video, Zoella addressed the controversy, saying that she "loves" the calendar but had no input in setting the retail price.

"There has been some upset, disappointed people with the Zoella Lifestyle calendar, and more specifically the price of the calendar", she began.

One Twitter user added up what the 12 items would cost at individually at Primark and Amazon and alleged that it would only cost around £22 - less than half what Zoella is charging for her calendar.

Parents have slammed the calendar created by the beauty vlogger as "tat" and "massively overpriced".

The lifestyle themed advent calendar features 12 windows filled with exclusive treats, including scented candles, accessories, stationery and baking tools.

The 27-year-old who has amassed over 11.6 million followers is reportedly making millions from her YouTube career and is listed as one of Forbes' Top Influencers.

Daily Star Online has contacted a rep for Zoella for comment.
