I have no idea what I just stumbled on. I only know I am frightened. Very very frightened. WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE AND WHAT DO THEY WANT?
Ashli Gay appears to be a crazy redneck from Mt. Vernon, Illinois who at some point became involved in an internet spat with someone named Ellie King. What started the spat? Evidently King accused Gay of being a phony. Gay responded by creating a video. In said video she confirms her realness by ticking off bits of her family history. Indeed parts of her story check out. A woman named Millie Staley did indeed die at St. Mary's Good Samaritan Hospital in Mt. Vernon on January 18, 2007 at 3 PM. Just like Ashli says in the video. But here's the problem. WHY IS SHE SO FUCKING SPECIFIC ABOUT NAMING THE TIME OF DEATH? Also, why does Ashli Gay have multiple Facebook pages? And what about the other videos? The insane insane videos posted in an account called AshliGayisaTroll.
I feel like I've fallen into some bizarre internet rabbit hole. I don't know what's real anymore and what is not. Are these people mere insane rednecks or are they in fact agents of chaos let loose on the earth to drive the rest of us insane? It's a riddle I must solve. If you never hear from me again...it's been real.

This is apparently Ellie King's YouTube channel. It includes this mocking video. WE LIVE IN THE SAME WORLD AS THESE PEOPLE. (Ellie King appears to love Justin Bieber and she has lost a lot of weight in the last year. Unless there are two Ellie Kings.)
