Jaclyn Hill apologizes for “childish” tweet over lipstick controversy

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.

Korean streamer HAchubby was shocked after she got a huge surprise on her birthday from her dedicated fans.

HAchubby shares her content to a multinational fanbase of over 200,000 on Twitch. She is most often found streaming IRL, collaborating with other streamers, as well as sometimes showcasing her piano skills.

She has several super loyal fans who make frequent appearances online whenever she streams. Just last month she met a Twitch fan in one of her IRL streams, only for him to reveal himself as her “number one VIP” and a known member of her community.

In another stream, a fan ‘stream sniped’ her. He approached her to give her a pizza box as a gift, and to HAchubby’s surprise the box contained a printed out image of the iconic Twitch “Jebaited” emote.

While she is used to interactions from her dedicated fans IRL, the last thing the streamer expected was for them all to come together to thank her for her content on her birthday.

On Sunday, November 29 HAchubby’s stream was hijacked by her viewers who sent her a video, with a pink background perfectly matching her hair color, wishing her a “Happy Birthday from all of chat.” The voiceover in the video said, “on this momentous occasion we bring you the event of a lifetime for the worldwide Twitch sensation HAchubby. Get your PepeDs ready!”

The rest of the video featured an emotional montage of some of HAchubby’s best moments and featured a clip of her introducing herself. The video also showed an adorable animation showcasing the impact that the streamer has had on a global scale.

HAchubby was confused at first, only managing to say an emotional “what?” in response, but as the video continued she looked tearful while viewers spammed the chat with birthday wishes.

As the streamer continues to make her multinational fanbase smile on a daily basis, it’s heartwarming to know that they can make her smile too.
