Gabbie Hanna Reveals Police Visited Her Home for Wellness Check Amid Backlash

Gabbie Hanna revealed on Twitter on Sunday that police officers had visited her home for a wellness check.

The social media star announced on Tuesday that she was planning to go "offline entirely," after facing a backlash for her YouTube series on The Gabbie Show, in which she discussed her feuds with a host of other YouTubers.

But Hanna returned on Sunday to share a selfie, which showed her giving the thumbs up, as she explained that she had been visited by law enforcement officers.

She wrote: "The police just came for a wellness check and i answered the door stoned, covered in paint and wearing only my underwear and a 'make sure your friends are okay' t shirt. i can't believe they didn't take me away."

While Hanna didn't specify what prompted the visit, fans commented under her tweet that she had earlier raised concerns with a post shared on her Patreon subscription site.

Newsweek has contacted a representative for Gabbie Hanna for comment.

Hanna's post came days after she shared a new YouTube music video that showed her singing in the bathtub, adding at the end of a lengthy accompanying caption: "From here on out, I'm offline entirely."

In her video, she put on an a capella performance of "Sorry... I'm Late"—an expletive-riddled track that sees her singing about having done "so much s*** that's embarrassing."

Hanna explained in the caption at the time why she had taken a previous two-week break from her platform as she also discussed the challenges of living with ADHD.

"I felt my mental health being compromised so I took a step back to be a person, touch some grass, pet my cats, see my friends, write some music... paint, mostly," she wrote. "I knew coming into this that it would be difficult, but I wasn't able to handle it the way I thought I was."

Addressing the backlash that had arisen from her YouTube series, Hanna went on: "This series is and always has been about healing, so if it gets to a place where it's no longer serving that purpose, I'm not going to push myself in a direction that's hurting more than it's helping.

"This series is *NOT* about drama, it's about my life & processing trauma. Unfortunately, a lot of that does involve people who consistently wrap me up in drama online. Trust me... I hate it, too.

"This series is simply a documentation of a life not many people experience or see. It was also meant to be a commentary on the constant, targeted harassment and exploitation of women in media. It's meant to serve as a tool in shedding light on the very trivialized and misunderstood mental disability, ADHD."

"In starting this series, I was also just starting treatment," she continued. "As I was editing, I was able to look back at the situations I was describing and recognize how my lack of understanding (and treatment) exacerbated otherwise trivial situations. I began medicating shortly after I finished filming and it changed my life.

"I spent so much of my life feeling like an alien on earth, not understanding why I thought so differently than other people, wondering why things that felt earth-shattering to me felt insignificant to the rest of the world."

"From here on out, I'm offline entirely," she concluded. "I really hope you enjoy the rest of the series, I put a lot of time and energy into it. It helped me find myself as a person and an artist and pushed me to places I was too scared to go creatively. I'm very excited to share that with you."

In her YouTube series, Hanna addressed feuds with a number of popular social media figures, including Trisha Paytas and Jessi Smiles.

Hanna and Smiles had a very bitter falling out back in 2019, when Smiles claimed that Hanna had sided with her ex-boyfriend Curtis Lepore, who she had accused of raping her in 2013.

Smiles filed charges in 2014, dropping them weeks later when Lepore pleaded guilty to felony assault. The issue rose to the fore again in 2019, when it was claimed that Hanna had been friendly with Lepore after the accusations.

In June, former Vine star Smiles publicly shared a series of recordings from her phone conversations with Hanna—which both parties consented to being recorded—during which they went over the history of their feud.
