After a long time of facing criticism and mockery over her poetry book, singer-songwriter Gabbie Hanna took to Twitter to express her thoughts about the same. She particularly clapped back at YouTuber Rachel Oates, who had consistently mocked her and even published a book 'Doggolescence' which is a parody of Hanna's book 'Adultolescence'. 

"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," Gabbie Hanna wrote on Twitter on April 19, 2021. She added, "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."

What exactly happened between Gabbie Hanna and Rachel Oates?

The basis of the controversy started way back in 2017 when Gabbie Hanna's poetry book 'Adultolescence' became a New York Times bestseller, despite receiving criticism from book reviewers and social media users. 

YouTuber Rachel Oates, a prominent book reviewer and critique had mocked Hanna's poetry about a month ago, even going to the extent of writing and publishing a parody book, according to HITC. Meanwhile, 'Adultolescence' grew in popularity for all the wrong reasons, as excerpts from the book were regularly shared across social media in the form of memes and jokes. Writer Gabbie Hanna herself became the subject of utmost ridicule at times. 

Hanna ultimately lashed out at Rachel Oates, as well as other creators and trolls, through a series of tweets and posts on April 19. She directly attacked Oates by tagging her and 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.” Later, in a video, Hanna dubbed her as 'manipulative' and a 'narcissistic abuser' while alleging that a mutual friend had told Oates to stop talking about Hanna.



 

Responding to Hanna's posts on Instagram, Rachel Oates accused her of creating drama and urged her to accept the 'constructive criticism' and 'write better'. 

"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," Oates posted.

She also sent a message to Hanna saying, "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.”

Additionally, Oates released an elaborate statement on Instagram about the entire controversial episode. However, her account appeared deleted later.

Amid all the drama, YouTuber Angelika Oles joined in to share her thoughts about the entire controversy. She took a dig at Gabbie Hanna on Twitter saying, "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.”

 



 

Hanna responded to her through tweets that said, "Awh is it unnecessary to call someone a bully Angelika? Is that mean? Toxic? A gross generalization made on someone I’ve never met? These narcissistic, confused, goof ass bitch I stg they don’t even TRY not to be hypocritical."

“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?”

 



 

Hanna's Twitter feud with Angelika Oles continued further as Oles accused Hanna of triggering the feud to help promote her upcoming song.
