Joyce made headlines back in 2016 after a widespread conspiracy theory claimed that she had been kidnapped by terrorist group ISIS. Rumors started swirling after she posted a YouTube video in which she acted strangely, and viewers noticed bruising on her arms.
Fans also claimed that she could be seen whispering “help me please” and making rapid eye movements to signal that she was in distress. Police later confirmed the YouTuber to be ‘safe and well’ and in no danger.
