Introduction for those Angles that don’t know, get to know!
Elle has been a Youtuber and Influencer since 2015 when she started off by documenting her year long journey to become a body builder. She was born in the UK, but spent a few years of her childhood living in the USA (her Dad served time in prison there) before returning to England. She then moved into more beauty, gym and clothes haul style lead content and has gained a substantial following along the way. She gained more widespread notoriety in 2018 when she was called out by the owner of the White Moose Café requesting a free stay in return for publicity for the Hotel. The owner’s response went viral and she became more widely known. Along the last few years, she has amassed quite a large following due to her YouTube Vlogs, Loungewear clothing company, Follower Giveaways and presenting her relationship with Connor as “Couple Goals” to her loyal fans (The Angels) She also has an uncanny knack to self-promote and profit from any situation she can monetize from and has often been very liberal with her use of photoshop to the point of being unrecognisable in certain posts. A staged engagement, a pregnancy announcement and the birth of their Son have given her lots of opportunities to build on milking content, gaining followers, making money and being one of the most well known Influencers within her bracket. Controversy has also followed alongside the White Moose debacle, in the case of breaking Lockdown rules, rumours of cheating and the biggest of all – the reveal of long lost Tweets from her and Connor’s old Twitter accounts from when they were teenagers that emerged in December 2021 which cause Elle and Connor to take time away to
go on multiple holidays and hope it all calms down soon
How to watch Elle’s Videos without her making money
Don’t line her pockets if you don’t need to. As of May 2022, she’s yet to release any new content since the Christmas Vlogs ended in Mid-December 2021. If you want to watch any of her old content (though quite a large number of her videos mysteriously disappeared after the Twitter scandal broke and footage of her talking about “Smelly, Bald Foreigners at the gym” did the rounds all over the Internet) then use the below link and follow the instructions.
If you wish to watch any of Elle’s YouTube videos without her profiting from them, then you can do so by following this link https://api.invidious.io/
and clicking on what website you want (YouTube) and then searching her name, where any videos she hasn’t deleted since the New Year will be available to watch.

The Twitter Scandal
You may wonder why her most recent controversy is at the top of Page One. Quite simply because it HAS to be. These weren’t just one or two dodgy Tweets; these were continuous posts from two people that should’ve known better than to publicly Tweet the things they were saying at the time. Homophobic, Racist, Fatphobic, Ableist, Sexist and also joking about animal abuse constantly aren’t just silly mistakes. A lot has been said and will continue to be said on the subject of the Tweets, Elle and Connor’s response to the scandal and how they will come through this the other side with any kind of career on social media or with a shred of respectability or authenticity intact. The fear is they will bounce back like nothing ever happened, because even though they have lost 100k’s of followers between them, they also have a large pool of fans who for various reasons continue to support them. This is the biggest section of the Wiki with a Timeline of Events, The Tweets, the response from other social media users and links to articles that appeared at the time alongside a list of companies they worked with and those that have publically stated they won't work with them anymore.
The Twitter Scandal Timeline = For the whole timeline of events up to present day, and any updates following the return to social media in May 2022 and beyond please see Page Three.
Before we get into the Tweets, if you haven't read these before then please be prepared to know these themes range from racist, homophobic, fatphobic and ableist comments. To also joking about domestic violence and animal abuse. These Tweets have to be documented as evidence of what they thought was acceptable to say on a public platform. These Tweets have hurt, shocked and surprised many people, but at the end of the day only goes to highlight that these problems still exist. If you have been effected by any of the words in the Tweets below, here are some charities that can give you help, advice, support and information.
