Amberlynn Reid is a YouTube vlogger. Her videos are typically about her life and chronic dieting. Due to her mannerisms and tendency to lie, especially about weight loss, she has attracted a large amount of negative attention from the people who follow her. As Amberlynn cannot stop herself from responding to these criticisms, much of her time is spent dealing with "haters".

Early Life

Amberlynn claims that she born in Key West, Florida and grew up in a trailer park with both parents addicted to drugs. Her father attempted suicide multiple times in front of her, and she claims to have been molested. She entered the foster care system at 8 years old, staying in it for the duration of her childhood and living in 5 different states in the process. She also claims to have lived in group homes and shelters. She has 3 younger brothers, but two were adopted into closed adoptions which prevents her from keeping in touch. She grew obese at an early age, and claims the lowest weight she can remember being in 290lb/132kg at the age of 11. As an adult, she discovered that she had been born addicted to drugs.

She openly discusses these things in her vlogs.[2]
