Stenzel has been criticised by local and national artists for her conservative positions and most notably for her outspoken support of a closing hour in Vienna's 1'st district ("Innere Stadt"). This culminated in a satirical video which covered the Duck Sauce hit "Barbra Streisand". This video became known as Ursula Stressned (Ursula don't stress) and gained wide popularity within days and became a YouTube fad.
