It is being reported that Netflix has cancelled Haters Back Off after its second season. The comedy premiered last year and was notable because it was the first scripted TV series ever created by a YouTube star.

Colleen Ballinger, who made it big on the online video platform playing the quirky Miranda Sings, developed the series for Netflix based on the popular character. The half-hour show follows the self-absorbed oddball Miranda, who lacks any real talent. Though not short on confidence, she firmly believes that she was born to be famous... it's just that nobody knows it yet.

While the show has been cancelled, Miranda Sings will live on on YouTube, where she has been making videos since 2008. The popular channel, which hosts hundreds of videos, currently sits at over 8 million subscribers. Ballinger has not yet commented on the cancellation, but did post a telling Tweet minutes after the news broke.
