YouTuber and makeup mogul Jaclyn Hill is back on social media with a pointed message for rude commenters who have negative things to say about her body.

Jaclyn Hill returned to YouTube after a brief hiatus in early February, explaining that she’d withdrawn and gained weight due to debilitating anxiety and depression over the drama surrounding her lipstick launch in 2019.

Claiming that she’d “self-medicated” with alcohol and is now seeking medical treatment and therapy, Hill has since become more active on her social media accounts, and is relatively open about her struggles with the dark side of online stardom.

Her struggle is still ongoing, it seems, as she once again opened up about hateful comments she receives in an Instagram post on April 11 — with a humorous jab at at her haters, in the process.

Hill’s post shows the star posing for the camera in a luxurious button-down shirt as she takes a bite out of a cheeseburger, perfectly shaped eyebrows and all.

“I miss the days when I chose to leave events early and isolate myself,” she captioned the photos. “Also, for all the people making comments about my weight and me eating a burger... go find yourself a life.”

Hill’s post has been met with acclaim from fans and fellow content creators, with many celebrating the YouTuber’s confidence and tasteful clapback to negative commenters.

The beauty guru’s soul-bearing February video also addressed her weight gain, where she admitted that, although she was happy with her body, negative comments about the matter took a serious toll on her mental health.

“I’m fine with gaining weight,” she revealed. “I’m fine with gaining weight in my body, I’m fine with it. I don’t care. But what the weight represents is what makes me so upset. So when people tell me, ‘You’re fat, you need to stop getting fillers,’ it triggers me, in a way.”

It seems that, mere months later, Hill is back on top — and she’s not afraid to give haters a taste of their own medicine.
