Is Marina Joyce Dead, Was She Really Kidnapped?

In 2016, internet users expressed their concern when the British vlogger appeared to have shown a sudden change in the way she talks during her video sessions. As a result, she became a trending topic on social media with fans suggesting she may have fallen victim to kidnapping or may even be under the influence of drugs. Social media detectives swung into action, leading to the hashtag #SaveMarinaJoyce hogging the trending lists in the bid to solicit for help for the supposed troubled star. A particular episode on Twitter saw users scrutinise Marina’s video on Date Outfit Ideas where they claimed she appeared to be filming the video under duress, in other words, a kidnapper was somewhere behind the camera and that explains her uneasy movement during the video and some bruises that she had on her hand.

Notwithstanding the speculations making the rounds, Marina later intervened to clear the air. She reassured all the people who were concerned about her safety, saying she’s absolutely fine. According to her, the bruises were a result of a fall in the forest. Apparently, she didn’t encounter any kidnapping and wasn’t struggling with drug overdose or anything relating to them. It was later confirmed by the police that Marina Joyce is alive and well.
