And her announcement has well and truly divided the internet. But before we get into the story, let's start from the beginning...

Jenna Nicole Mourey is a thirty-three-year-old woman from New York...

But she's best known as Jenna Marbles as a very popular YouTuber.

She started her career back in 2010 writing for Barstool Sports...

But after only holding this job for a year, she started to build her personality on YouTube.

One of her first videos was titled, "How To Trick People Into Thinking You're Good Looking"...

And it was hugely popular after receiving more than 5.3 million views in its first week.

Her channel began attracting a lot of attention.

Her video, "How To Avoid Talking To People You Don't Want To Talk To", was featured in The New York Times and ABC News in August 2011.

After receiving more than 36.2 million views, the video was widely discussed.

Jenna said in the vide0, "I'm sick and tired of guys thinking that just because I showed up at a club or a dance or a bar, that I want to have their genitalia touching my backside" - something that a lot of women can relate to.

Jenna's YouTube channel now has an impressive 20.2 million subscribers...

And her content ranges from lifestyle, fashion, makeup, and more recently, the "silly and absurd."

Many of her videos involve her dogs...

And she has released her very own brand of dog toys called Kermie Worm & Mr. Marbles - which are based upon her dogs.

Jenna is all about happiness and positivity...

But in more recent times, her tone has soured.

Yesterday, Jenna took to her channel to announce that she's quitting.

It turns out that fans have been putting a lot of heat on the YouTuber over the last few weeks in regards to racism that has emerged on her part.

"I want to make sure the things that I put into the world are not hurting anyone."

She explained that fans have been requesting that she address problematic videos from her past, which include her in blackface, and she "feels like we’re at a time where we are purging ourselves of anything and everything toxic."

Jenna tried to explain how she didn't realize what she was doing was offensive at the time...

"I’ve tried my best to grow up and to be a better person. And first and foremost, I want everyone to know that I’ve always been a two-way street, and that anytime that you criticize me and tell me that you would like me to do better or to do something differently, that I always try to do that. And I try to make fun content, inclusive content, things that don’t offend people or upset people, and that’s kind of where I am."

Offensive past videos include when she dressed in blackface imitating Nicki Minaj...

She also shamed women "who slept around," and she made a racist joke about Asian men in her "Bounce That D***" music video.

She then desperately tried to apologize to her fans...

"It's awful, it doesn't need to exist, it's inexcusable, it's not OK," she said about the racist videos. "I'm incredibly sorry if this offended then, now, whenever, it doesn't need to exist. It shouldn't have existed. I shouldn't have said that ever. It's not cool, it's not cute, it's not OK, and I'm embarrassed that I ever made that, period."

Not only is Jenna giving up her platform of 20 million subscribers on YouTube...

But she’s also making the offensive videos on her channel private. "I’m sorry if any of [my old content] holds any nostalgia for you, but I’m literally not trying to put out negative things into the world. I think there was a time when having all of my old content exists on the internet showed how much I have grown up as a person, which I’m very proud of."

After Jenna's video was uploaded, there was a clear divide in opinion.

Many fans and fellow YouTubers praised the star for admitting to her mistakes and apologizing.

People have expressed how they don't want her to quit YouTube...

And by her apologizing shows true strength in character.

Many fans from the black community have accepted her apology...

And they feel it was sincere and heartfelt.

But many fans just aren't buying her apology.

As this Twitter user pointed out, she may only be apologizing because the BLM movement is trending at the moment. If it wasn't, would she have made the same move?

And see what you think of it for yourselves... will she be able to come back from this?
