Partnering with Yarn, a quirky app that sends you fictional stories told via text exchanges, the 14-year-old reads aloud a tale of a petulant daughter who ignores her mom’s advice and insists on cuddling with her pet python. (“Snake is trying to finesse you,” Bregoli warns. “A snake can fucking wrap around your neck and fucking kill you.”) You can probably guess how this possibly allegorical fable ends.
“See how white people talk to they parents?” Bregoli, who is white, asks her more than 1 million channel subscribers.
Along the way, Bregoli jokes about rap group Migos, reveals that she hates snakes, and ultimately sides with the mom in this horror tale about the warning signs we ignore on the way to disaster.
“You go mom,” she says. “You don’t need to be on Dr. Phil.”
It’s already been a hot summer for Bregoli, who pleaded guilty to grand theft auto and marijuana possession last week. Her Live Nation-sponsored summer tour has been met with delays, and yet her YouTube and social media presence is blossoming. Her sponsored YouTube snake story has more than 750,000 views as of this writing: Love it or hate it, she’s emerged from meme stardom to become a bonafide star.
