Cara Cunningham (formerly Chris Crocker; born December 7, 1987), is an American Internet celebrity, blogger, songwriter, recording artist, former pornographic film actor and YouTuber. Cunningham gained fame in September 2007 from her viral video "Leave Britney Alone!", in which she tearfully defended pop singer Britney Spears' comeback performance at the MTV Video Music Awards; the video received over four million views in two days. The video gained international media attention, hundreds of parodies, and criticism for Cunningham.Producing and acting in her own videos, Cunningham is a self-described edutainer. In almost all of Cunningham's adolescent works, she presents herself as an openly gender non-conforming person and effeminate Southerner in a "small-minded town" in the Bible Belt. Using "Crocker" as a stage name, she kept her exact location private due to safety concerns and death threats in response to her YouTube and Myspace video blogs and profile until she was no longer a teenager.Cunningham’s work consists mainly of short-form, self-directed monologues shot in her grandparents' home. As of October 2010, Cunningham’s videos had received a combined 50 million plays on MySpace, and her vlog channel on YouTube was the 100th-most viewed of all time in all categories, with over 205 million video views, before Cunningham closed her YouTube account in September 2015. Cunningham’s detractors and critics have accused her of narcissism, melodramatics, histrionics, and using Spears' personal shortcomings to bolster her own fame. Others have accused Cunningham of acting in the "Leave Britney Alone!" video, although Cunningham insisted it was genuine on a September 2007 appearance on Maury Povich's Maury show. In 2014, Queerty stated that with Cunningham’s thousands of Facebook and Twitter followers, Cunningham is "one of those self-invented social media icons".
