YouTube star Nikkie ‘NikkieTutorials’ de Jager has reassured fans that she’s okay following an armed robbery that took place at her home in The Netherlands, leaving one person injured.

The August 8 report was first published by RTL Boulevard, a Dutch publication, after local police tweeted out that there had been an armed robbery at a property. “At least” three people are suspected to be involved.

“The perpetrators threatened the residents with possibly a firearm and took an unknown loot from them. There are at least three perpetrators who fled in a beige car towards the A50,” they tweeted, as translated by Google Translate.

A few hours after the incident, Nikkie released a statement on social media, and reassured worried fans that she is safe and okay.

“Earlier today, one of my biggest nightmares became reality when we got robbed under gunpoint at our own home. Dylan and myself got attacked but physically we’re okay. Mentally it’s a whole other story,” it read.

She ended the note by thanking her fans for the support, and said that she was understandably going to be taking some time away from the internet: “Thank you for understanding as I take the next couple of days to myself.”

Supporters sent love to the YouTuber in waves. “sending all my love to @NikkieTutorials i hope she is safe!” one user tweeted. “Hey Nikkie I hope you are your fiancé are ok! Just know we are all here for you,” said another. These messages are just two among hundreds of well wishes from worried users.

Many are worried for the 26-year-old following an armed robbery at her Dutch home.

NikkieTutorials is one of the top beauty influencers on YouTube, boasting a following of over 13 million subscribers who routinely tune in to watch her makeup videos. She’s also collaborated with high-profile celebrities such as Lady Gaga and Meghan Trainor.

She first rose to fame back in 2015 with the Power of Makeup tag in which she covered half of her face with makeup and half without in order to show just how empowering it can really be.

TSM Hamlinz finally breaks Twitter silence after four-months away

Hamlinz has been missing in action for quite some time, but the beloved Fortnite streamer has finally broken his silence on Twitter on Oct. 25, and let the world know he is back and feeling good.

Darryle ‘Hamlinz’ Hamlin was once a pillar in the streaming world. He shot to fame while streaming Fortnite during its peak, and his popularity rose even more after he joined Team Solo Mid.

However, the beloved streamer has been on the down-low for several months now; in fact, he has been silent on social media for most of the year. 

Hamlinz tweeted every now and then between January and March, and even streamed a couple of times. But he was far less active than he used to be, and hadn’t posted at all since July.

Many speculated he might have been on another hiatus. The first one happened when he needed some time off to deal with a nasty cyst. The second one happened not long after when he needed some time to deal with personal issues.

Hamlinz was once one of the most popular streamers alongside Shroud and Ninja.

Hamlinz is back and feeling like his old self again

Thankfully, he bounced back on both those occasions, and it seems like he’s bounced back once again. The full extent of what happened this time around remains unclear. However, the most important thing is that Hamlinz has finally broken his silence on social media.

“Feeling like my old self again,” he wrote. It’s a little more than one hour old, but the tweet has already amassed 50,000 likes, 6,5000 retweets, and 6,000 comments.

The hype is real, and for a good reason. Hamlinz is one of the most entertaining, likable, and talented streamers in the world. Plus, it’s always nice to see people recover from whatever issues they’re facing and get back on their own two feet.

The comments are filled with people happy to see him back. “Finally something good in 2020,” wrote one fan. “Hamlinz is BACK BABY,” wrote another.

Sadly, Hamlinz has remained tight-lipped on whether he will stream again anytime soon. However, considering he is feeling like his old self again, it could mean that a stream might not be too far away.

Either way, there’s no doubt that it will be a momentous occasion. If the excitement in the comments is anything to go by, the floodgates will open and his fans, followers, and viewers will come pouring in.

Hamlinz has more than five million followers across Twitch, Twitter, and Youtube. It seems all the time off hasn’t dampened his popularity in the slightest.
