In this article, I will discuss what appears to be the strikingly obvious dark truth behind Colleen Ballinger who has made headlines lately for her “Cringe” apology video in response to accusations of child grooming.

Creation of Miranda Sings

Ballinger created the character Miranda Sings in 2008 as a parody of the bad singers who upload videos of themselves on YouTube. The character, known for her off-key singing, excessive lipstick, and constant references to her pedophilic uncle, became a quick success as a comedian.

Transition to Television

Ballinger’s success on YouTube led to her own Netflix original series, “Haters Back Off,” which ran for two seasons from 2016 to 2017. The show delved into the fictional backstory of Miranda Sings.

Authoring a Book

In 2015, Ballinger co-authored a book titled “Selp-Helf” under the character of Miranda Sings. The comedic self-help guide became a New York Times Best Seller.

Success on YouTube

As of 2023, Ballinger’s YouTube channels, “Miranda Sings” and “Colleen Ballinger,” have a combined subscriber count of over 25 million, making her one of the most successful YouTubers.

The Dark Truth

It’s boundless, it’s all right there out in the open.

The Dog Killer

Colleen discusses the time she got her dog to bite her and then had it euthanized.

The Skits

Miranda Sings pretends to be her Uncle, saying how excited she is for her birth because “He loves little girls”
Miranda does a skit using “Gum” instead of “Cum”
OK that’s enough

The Video Confession

Colleen tears up during a conspiracy video that states Miranda Sings is a split personality created from the trauma of being molested by her uncle. In the end, she reveals a black screen. Was it her own story?

The Book

Colleen Ballinger’s Book Was The First Red Flag Everyone Ignored. Keep in mind this book became #3 on Amazon while in the pre-release phase.

Let’s start with the fact that her video announcing the release of the book was literally called “Revealing Miranda’s Uncle”

The Horrors Inside

She shows crime scene style photos, described as “Pictures My Uncle Took To Show How I Sleep”
Highly SUS
Uh, this is starting to seem way too real…
So who is her Uncle!?

How could this all stay out in the open for so long?! Well, a great book by Malcolm Gladwell comes to mind. “Talking to Strangers” discusses many cases of criminals hiding in plain sight, as well as the psychology behind why it’s so easy to do so.
