YouTube star and makeup mogul Jaclyn Hill is once again facing the wrath of critics online, after seeming to disappear from her regular upload schedule following the launch of her second Morphe eyeshadow palette.

Fans are voicing their displeasure with Hill, who announced the second edition of her Morphe palette in early February.

While drama quickly ensued surrounding the product’s launch (including complaints that the star’s signature formula had been changed to a non-vegan mixture without notice), the eyeshadows themselves are taking a back seat in their latest complaints.

With Hill promising a makeup tutorial featuring her new brush line, fans were ready to watch the star get glam with her latest products — but instead, were left hanging, prompting a slew of comments accusing the star of only making videos to sell her creations.

However, Hill has since spoken out amidst the backlash, posting a series of Tweets on March 10 explaining why she’s taken a sudden step back from YouTube in what many critics have claimed is a trend.

“…I know a lot of people are wondering why I’m so absent on socials recently,” she explained. “I’ve decided to make my health my #1 priority. I briefly opened up about it in my video, but it’s very deep and I need help.”

The beauty guru continued her explanation by stating that she is taking time to focus on her physical and mental health, and is working with an “amazing team” of doctors and therapists to “detox” her body and return to a healthier state.

“…in this time of my life, I have to put myself first,” she continued. “Before anything else. I hope you understand and I can’t wait to get on the other side of this and share my journey with you!”

Despite her claims, critics still aren’t pleased with her lack of videos, with many accusing the star of “emotional manipulation” and only using her platform to sell her makeup products.

Hill’s statement comes after the star opened up about recovering from the backlash of her lipstick launch in 2019, with the mogul claiming that she “self-medicated” her debilitating anxiety over the matter with alcohol, leading to a swollen face and weight gain.

Although Hill has now stated twice that she is seeking therapy to address these health concerns, it doesn’t seem that fans are interested in hearing her side of the story as they are left hanging with no new content

This week has been nothing less than a rollercoaster for some of the net’s top personalities. From the Sway House’s Bryce Hall getting involved in a street fight to David Dobrik being stalked by a “scary” viewer, it seems that social media stars are taking heat on all sides, and we’ve got all the tea you need to stay updated on the drama.

So… what’s brewing?

Bryce Hall was slammed for uploading a video of himself and the Sway Boys fighting on Twitter.

Who’s involved? Bryce Hall is both a YouTube star and a top-tier TikToker who hails from the Sway House, a content collective and rival of the Hype House.

What’s the tea? On October 5, Hall uploaded a video of himself and other Sway House members tousling with an unidentified bystander. Seeming to hint that the stranger deserved the pummeling, fans were quick to criticize the influencer for what many deemed to be “bad behavior” — but there’s more to the story than the video shows.

Sway House member Nick Bean later took to Instagram to clarify the situation, claiming that he’d been drunk that night and had thrown a traffic cone over the bystander’s car. Outraged, the stranger exited a nearby restaurant and allegedly punched Bean in the face several times, leading to the brawl that had been caught on film.

Why did he even share the video, anyway? Hall later corroborated Bean’s version of events, and stated that he’d chosen to upload the video — originally filmed on September 23 — so that media wouldn’t misinterpret the situation.

Luckily, both parties made up in the end and even hugged it out. No harm, no foul, right?

Who’s involved? David Dobrik is one of YouTube’s most popular vloggers, best known for his high-energy shenanigans with the “Vlog Squad” and his generous giveaways.

What’s the tea? While Dobrik has had his fair share of fans showing up to his home uninvited, the story he shared on this week’s ‘VIEWS’ podcast was nothing short of disturbing.

According to Dobrik, a woman had been sitting outside of his home for two days before banging on his door, screaming his name. She quickly ran away after being confronted, but later returned to key the side of his assistant’s car, carving David’s name in the blue Ford Bronco.

After approaching the stranger, she admitted that she’d been directed by a “voice” inside her head to come to his house in the hopes of getting “answers.”

Luckily, this story has a happy ending, as David was able to help the woman get to a hospital to receive mental health counseling. We could all learn a little something from David’s compassion in a situation where many folks would be freaking out.

Dixie D’Amelio and Noah Beck finally confirmed their relationship status after weeks of claiming they were just “besties.”

Who’s involved? Noah Beck and Dixie D’Amelio are among the TikTok elite, and they’ve been a popular item among fans ever since Dixie and Griffin Johnson parted ways.

What’s the tea? From sharing a smooch in Dixie’s new music video to being constantly spotted together by paparazzi, it truly seemed like these two were dating on the down-low, no matter how many times they claimed they were just “besties.”

Beck finally spilled the beans on October 6, as seen in a clip from a then-unreleased YouTube video. In the clip, Beck revealed that he and Dixie were officially dating, confirming what fans and eagle-eyed internet detectives knew all along. (It’s okay Noah — we’ve already been through this with the ‘Braddison’ situation.)

Fans are speculating that TikTok star Bella Poarch might be joining 100 Thieves in the near future.

Who’s involved? Bella Poarch is an up-and-coming TikTok sensation, breaking the site’s record for receiving the most likes on a single video for her viral lipsync of Millie B’s “M to the B.”

What’s the tea? While it’s been speculated that Poarch could be set to overtake Charli D’Amelio — earning over twice the amount of views as the current TikTok queen — the future of the influencer is still up in the air, and many viewers are finding it odd that she’s suddenly catapulted to internet stardom.

YouTube star Logan Paul has taken to trading Pokémon cards, leading to some serious developments in the card game’s economy.

Who’s involved? Logan Paul is known for his wild YouTube shenanigans (“suicide forest” scandal aside) — but most people, admittedly, don’t think of Pokémon cards when he comes to mind.

gotta catch em all 😉

A post shared by Logan Paul (@loganpaul) on

TCG analyst ‘ZandGEmporium’ revealed the insane impact Paul has had on the prices of Pokémon cards since starting up his collection, claiming that the YouTuber had dropped a “bomb” onto the community’s already steep pricing.

“What’s that going to mean for the prices of everything? Well, you’ve already seen it. You know how many messages I’ve got in the past two weeks since he’s released that video about base sets. It’s like, ‘Do you have basic packs? Do you have base set packs? Base set box?’”

“There are people that love or hate Logan Paul,” he added. “That’s fine, it is what it is. You can say what you want, but if he’s legitimately buying and selling them, it is what it is.”
