Ratcliffe is no stranger to criticism, even from within the vegan vlogging community (yes, there is a vegan vlogging community) and her latest video posts are providing even more fodder for her critics.
Ratcliffe, 36, posted a confessional video on Christmas Day on her popular YouTube channel Freelee the Banana Girl confessing to having undergone breast surgery when she was 21. “I’ve been wanting to talk about the girls for a long time but I’ve had a lot of conflicting thoughts.” She said her surgery was “honestly the best thing I did at the time”, adding, “It was really really helpful to my self-esteem.”

Ratcliffe explained that her sternum comes out to a point on her chest and was more obvious when she was flat-chested. She decided to go up to a C cup. “I think it’s a good size, it’s in a good proportion to my body.”
The vegan blogger stressed that her video wasn’t a promotion for breast surgery, more an explainer of her experience and she ended by saying, ““Really think about it – it is a big deal, you are being opened up on the operating table so don’t take it lightly.”
Ratcliffe also chose to come clean about a porn addiction, leaving her followers wondering what she’ll confess to next.
