Outside of fursuiting, Majira is bespectacled and is also famous with his signature hipster-style glasses like his non-furry Youtube channel. However, his second fursuit (the first one entirely by Mischief Makers) came with yellow shades with blue lenses (similar in shape to his regular glasses) as an accessory that he would occasionally wear.
Kyle first joined the furry fandom in 2010. Before becoming known as Majira in the fandom, his fursona was a wolf named Wolfrik. Around 2013, however, Kyle retired using Wolfrik as his fursona in favor of his current and more recognizable fursona Majira Strawberry which he continues to use today.
Description and history of Majira
Majira's fursona is a red fox with purple and green tiger stripes on his thighs. His tail is colored red, purple, green, and black. His facial features contain purple (right) and green (left) heterochromia eyes, a lime green nose, and a purple tongue.
Majira was originally fully coyote before confusion about his species led him to become a coyote-fox hybrid. Majira strives for a look that is cute yet trendy. In the spring of 2018, he redesigned his fursona, giving him black paws with white toes and fingertips and now with both of his irises green, and his ears fully purple on the front but red on the back.
His favorite foods are strawberries hence his fursona's last name and least favorite foods are cherries.
Majira's first fursuit was built by two makers. The body was built by Hindpaws, and the head by Lolo the Fox. Majira later sold it in January of 2015 to buy an upgraded version by Mischief Makers and a new camera. Although it is rarely ever mentioned by Majira anymore, some videos showing his first fursuit can still be accessible to view.
On June 25, 2015, Majira did an unboxing video on Majira 2.0. It is considered to be one of the most iconic of Majira's fursuits according to fans. After unboxing and revealing his third fursuit, Majira noted in his video titled "Yes, I Have A New Fursuit. No, You Can't Have My Old One" that he would likely lend Majira 2.0 to friends of his at conventions, mentioning that if you see his old suit that it would likely be one of his friends including Kiwi Fox for example. He renamed his second fursuit to Twizzler, a reference to the brand of licorice candies.
Due to redesigning his fursona in 2018, Majira bought a third fursuit, also made by Mischief Makers, but in digitigrade form as opposed to plantigrade like his second one. It also has interchangeable facial features to reflect his emotions during his videos. As mentioned earlier, Majira decided to keep Majira 2.0 aka "Twizzler" despite buying a third one. Majira unboxed Majira 3.0 on July 14, 2018. This is Majira's current fursuit design as of January 2019. He also has a kigurumi counterpart to it but wears it as a bodysuit whilst wearing his fursuit head.
Kyle first joined YouTube on September 22, 2012, as a vlogging and skit channel unrelated to the furry fandom. Referred to as Kyle Summers, he uploads similar content on it as his furry channel. In addition to this channel, he also maintains a secondary non-furry channel called Kyle Winters, where he uploaded his completed school projects before he graduated. Despite his massive rise in popularity as a furry youtuber, Kyle does wish to revive Kyle Summers as a way to diversify his content.
As a furry YouTuber
On June 4, 2014, Kyle started his furry channel but didn't pay much attention to it until January 9, 2015, when he uploaded his first video on the channel titled "Majira's Fox Transformation". He currently has over 100 videos on it as of January 2019. His content consists of skits, parodies, instructional videos, and collaborations related to the furry fandom. As with his non-furry work, Majira maintains a secondary channel called Majira Peppermint, where he uploads various other content that relates to him as a furry, but is otherwise used in a "behind the scenes" format.
Majira has reached several milestones on both subscriber and view counts on his main furry channel. On January 3, 2017, he reached 50,000 subscribers. On October 28, 2017, he reached 100,000 subscribers and on December 28, 2018, he reached 200,000 subscribers. He currently has over 203,000 YouTube subscribers (as of January 2019) and 18,188,571 total views
Tide Pods video
A video which featured Majira and Arrin the Wolf supposedly eating Tide Pods making "Forbidden Fruit Pizza",[clarify] which was originally uploaded on December 30, 2017 caused an outcry and raised safety concerns by the public and the media on whether or not the video was encouraging people in real life to eat detergent pods that look like candy. This was a part of a much bigger controversy revolving around a meme where people were challenged to eat Tide Pods and ended up dying from it.
The article was included in a Flayrah article seven days after the video was uploaded. On January 12, 2018, the video was removed for violating YouTube's policy for harmful or dangerous content. After the controversial video was deleted, all Majira's videos were completely de-monetized.[clarify] As of 2019, Majira got his ads back on the main channel and a YouTube safe version of the Tide Pods video can still be viewed on Majira Peppermint. 
h3h3 podcast drama, harassment and cancellation
On January 7, 2019, Majira was asked by h3h3Productions (also known as h3h3 or h3) to do a podcast about the furry fandom. He agreed and was scheduled for March 1, 2019. Despite fans and friends[who?] of Majira saying that he should do the podcast, there was a massive backlash where many in the fandom[who?] demanded Majira cancel his appearance due to h3h3's controversy regarding transgender people,[clarify] as well as concerns over the fandom going mainstream.[clarify]
Some even went as far as to say that Majira himself was transphobic. On February 21, 2019, Majira announced that after listening to the concerns of the community, he decided to back out of the podcast and apologized for any grief he caused.
