December 2023 Painted Pants In the Gym Controversy

On December 26th, 2023, Reynolds became the subject of controversy after streaming herself going to the gym with pants painted over her bare legs. During the stream, she was confronted by a gym-goer who told her it was inappropriate to wear no pants to the gym. Reynolds called him a "male Karen." The clip was posted to the @DramaAlert X[4] account that day, garnering over 23,000 likes in five months (shown below).

The clip was reported on by numerous online media outlets over the following months, including Bored Panda[5] and LADBible,[6] many highlighting online controversy and debates sparked by the video. On December 29th, 2023, YouTuber[7] MorePegasus made a video about the incident titled "Gym Girl Thinks She's The Main Character," garnering over 400,000 views in five months (shown below).

On December 30th, Reynolds posted an apology for the incident on X,[8] writing, "I’ve made a severe and continuous lapse in my judgment and I don’t expect to be forgive. I am simply here to apologize," garnering over 3,800 likes in five months.

May 2024 Drowning Controversy

On May 29th, 2024, a clip from Reynolds' Kick stream where she purportedly dares a "vulnerable" woman to jump in a lake for $20 went viral, including in a post to /r/PublicFreakout[10] that day that garnered over 14,000 upvotes in two days. The woman jumps in and Reynolds denies that she told her to jump. She then starts leaving the scene and the woman yells for help, saying that she "can't swim." Reynolds does not do anything to help the woman, even as she claims to be drowning. Instead, Reynolds leaves the scene with her friends, who keep reiterating to her how bad the situation is. Later in the stream, as she and her friends drive off, a firetruck is seen passing by them, assumedly heading to help the woman in the lake. The post gained over 21,000 likes in a day (shown below).

This post was purportedly made in relation to the incident. Some have claimed that the woman who jumped into the lake was homeless, although this is unconfirmed.
