Well guys, we’ve had a great run, but I regret to tell you that life as we know it is over. It’s canceled, it’s done, it’s off the table until further notice. Why, you say? Because I just learned of something so horrifying that I truly no longer wish to live on this planet. Of course, I am talking about the Gamer Girl Bathwater situation, in which Instagram model/cosplayer Belle Delphine sold her used bathwater for real, actual money ($30 a jar, to be precise). Oh yeah, and it sold out. Buckle up (or just click away now, I won’t blame you), because it’s an absolutely crazy and disgusting ride.
Who Is Belle Delphine?
Belle Delphine has 4.1 million Instagram followers (and already had over 3.9 million before the bathwater incident). Her profile is filled with mostly nude pictures of herself in different wigs (pink seems to be her favorite) and schoolgirl costumes or lingerie. It’s a classic anime look, in that she both looks 12 years old and insanely horny, which I guess is a big hit with men these days. (Upon checking her page, I see that two different people I used to hook up with follow her account. Nice!) According to Insider, Delphine (who is 19 years old) “has become famous for her NSFW content, where she wears very little clothing and makes ahegao facial expressions, sometimes used in Japanese anime and manga pornography.” I’m too sad already to research ahegao, so I will take their word for it.
Delphine also briefly landed in the news back in June when she promised followers she’d create a PornHub account if she cracked 1 million likes on a photo. She succeeded, then posted a PornHub account full of videos of her playing with stuffed animals and eating a photograph of PewDiePie. (PewDiePie is a Swedish YouTuber, for those as uninformed as me.) Some might draw from this story that Delphine is an unpredictable prankster with an eye for social commentary; others might suggest Delphine is out of her motherf*cking mind. To those who are in the former camp, allow me to direct you to this YouTube compilation of Delphine’s raw egg content. What does she do to the eggs, you might ask? IDK! My eyes are still bleeding.
Why Is She Selling Her Bathwater?
Put simply, because she can. She advertised the goods on Instagram with the following caption:
“i am now selling my BATH WATER for all you THIRSTY gamer boys ? check out my new shop where im selling stuff for you!! www.belledelphinestore.com.”
While Delphine isn’t always a gamer girl (she’s a chameleon, if you will), she’s pictured here in a “GAME OVER” shirt with a video game controller and a branded “gamer girl bathwater” jar. Did she pick this particular look because she knew gamer guys were the most likely to spend money on stupid sh*t catered to their unique gamer guy horniness? Given the thousands of dollars they spend on actual video games in which women’s breasts are five times the size of their head, it’s a safe bet.
Oh, and FYI the bathwater had the following description on her website: “Bottled while I’m playing in the bath. This really is bath water. Disclaimer: This water is not for drinking and should only be used for sentimental purposes.” This will become relevant later.
How Did Gamer Girl Bathwater Go Viral?
First of all, this level of depravity is always going to attract attention. But then there’s the fact that it was so successful—the bathwater sold out in three days, Delphine reported on Twitter, and she’s still working on getting the bathwater into containers and sent off now. Delphine’s entrepreneurial spirit alone was making headlines—and then a tweet went viral that claimed 30 people had gotten herpes from drinking the bathwater.
Delphine quickly confirmed that she had only sent out one or two jars, and the account itself has confirmed that the rumor was a hoax. But many are eager to see this story get even more ridiculous than it already has, preferably in a way that punishes people who actually spent $30 on a jar of used bathwater. Two YouTubers who have received their shipments of bathwater have posted videos—this one, in which he takes a sip of said bathwater, has over 2 million views:
Basically, it’s a sh*t show start to finish—and yes, Belle Delphine will be a millionaire before the year is out. With less than six months left in 2019, this is how the world ends: not with a bang, but with a highly evolved strain of drug-resistant virus contracted by drinking a 19-year-old cosplayer’s bathwater. We don’t know if that will actually happen yet, but the fact that bathwater as merchandise exists is bad enough.

Gemini is represented by twins, and those that fall under this sign are known for their dual nature (which is just a nice way of saying multiple personalities). You can be chatty and social or dreamy and calm. So, naturally, we have two strains to fit either of your moods. With an earthy, lemony flavor, Trainwreck provides a heavy-hitting head high to uplift you and enhance your outgoing side.
