Jaclyn Hill is one of YouTube’s top beauty gurus — but her lipstick scandal in 2019 sparked a huge amount backlash against the star, who lashed out at critics for switching up on her in a recent tweet.

Jaclyn Hill is, plain and simple, a massively popular social media influencer. The makeup mogul has successfully begun her own empire, collaborating with brands like Morphe to create one of the biggest palettes among beauty enthusiasts.

Boasting over 5.8 million subscribers, Hill has become a household name in YouTube’s makeup community — but not always for the best reasons.

In 2019, the influencer suffered a major blow to her reputation after buyers discovered the lipsticks they’d purchased from her line contained foreign objects like fuzz and were even misshapen.

The controversy caused a slew of criticism toward Hill, who eventually disappeared from social media and self-medicated her growing depression and anxiety with alcohol — but after making a huge comeback, the star has is now hitting back at those who blew up her lipstick scandal.

“D***, people really dragged me to filth when I had a scandal with my lipsticks,” she wrote in a tweet on September 3. “But are no where to be found when I’m ‘unproblematic’ and doing well. I hope they enjoyed that paycheck they got from the views, though!”

Unfortunately for Hill, her tweet was *also* met with contention among fans — not a surprising development, unfortunately, considering that just about every move the mogul makes these days is placed under the microscope.

Many critics accused the star of attention seeking after her post went viral, while others felt she “earned” the “dragging” brought about by the lipstick drama last year.

It seems the division spun out of control, as Hill apologized for the Tweet on September 4, claiming that some had spread rumors she was referencing specific faces in the beauty community.

“Last night I made a tweet that I shouldn’t have,” she wrote. “I was very emotional and should have put my phone down instead of reacting childish. I was not referring to fans, I was not referring to drama channels and I was not referring to certain influencers that have now been brought into this.”

Hill went on to claim that she should have handled the matter privately instead of venting on social media. While critics are still quick to judge, we’ve certainly all been there — just not continuously faced with the ire of millions of haters.

While they have many adoring fans, they haven’t been exempt from drama, such as earlier in July when they were forced to address a homophobic slur used when explaining the bullying they received in high school. In the same month, Ethan released a video detailing how comments online about his acne had severely affected his well-being in the past year.

Last week Ethan revealed his girlfriend to the world on YouTube with his brother Grayson. After spending months apart Kristine was finally able to catch a flight out to Los Angeles from Australia where she lives.

On Monday, Ethan stunned his fans by posting a series of close, romantic pictures to his Instagram alongside an emotional message, which read: “To say the least, this has been a chaotic, stressful, weird, confusing, uneasy year. But because it was spent with the smartest – most caring -best sense of humor having – so pretty I get stunned every time I look at – perfect woman in the world, it has been the best year of my life.”

He explained that last December was “one of the most emotionally exhausting months of my life” and attributed his success and ability to get through to her support.

Part 1/3. To say the least, this has been a chaotic, stressful, weird, confusing, uneasy year. But because it was spent with the smartest – most caring -best sense of humor having – so pretty I get stunned every time I look at – perfect woman in the world, it has been the best year of my life. Our trip to Hawaii on this day last year, will be a memory I cherish for the rest of my life. I will be forever grateful for how caring you were during one of the most emotionally exhausting months of my life while living in Australia together last December. I wouldn’t have been able to create my most proud project last January without your constant support. When we were forced to quarantine together and be attached at the hip for an additional 5 months longer than we planned… I wasn’t even mad😌 When you had to go back to Australia without knowing when we’d be able to see each other again it was NOT CHILL. Although we unintentionally spent 4 months on opposite sides of the globe with a 17 hour time difference… I still felt closer than ever to you. The hours on FaceTime everyday and random gift care packages were fun. You completely took over my camera roll because I couldn’t help but to screenshot your face every couple seconds. Getting a little part of you tattooed on my arm also contributed to you feeling closer to me I guess 😝 Thank you for making me happy everyday. Thank you for giving me something to always look forward to. Thank you for making me a better version of myself. I love you Photos by: @jordenkeith

It seems as though Ethan will have more to say in the next few days after he labeled the caption only part 1 of 3. For now, the YouTuber has confirmed to the world that not only is he in a far better place than he was last year, but that he is well and truly taken.
