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Jaclyn Hill returned to YouTube after a brief hiatus in early February, explaining that she’d withdrawn and gained weight due to debilitating anxiety and depression over the drama surrounding her lipstick launch in 2019.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

YouTube star Jaclyn Hill notably came under fire in 2019, after the launch of her lipstick line caused outrage due to defective products.

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.

Dr Disrespect goes bald in bizarre Agent 47 cosplay for Hitman 3 stream

Streaming legend Dr Disrespect got into character for his playthrough of Hitman 3 by getting rid of his iconic mullet and going bald to cosplay as Agent 47.

Dr Disrespect is known to go the extra mile when trying out big new blockbuster video game releases. Notably, the two-time revamped his entire intro for the launch of Cyberpunk 2077 with some insane production quality.

While most of his character-specific streams have been limited to graphics such as reimagining himself as a Valorant skin prior to the game’s release, he decided to up the ante with a simple cosplay for Hitman.

During his January 20 stream of Hitman 3, the Two-Time Champion opted to cover his head in an attempt to appear bald, just like the game’s protagonist.

Unfortunately, Doc didn’t also opt for Agent 47’s signature suit with the red tie and kept his more traditional attire, sunglasses and all.

Amusingly, one could say that Doc and Agent 47 are polar opposites. While Dr Disrespect is a bombastic, larger-than-life personality, 47 is quite emotionless and calculating. You won’t see him flipping open an old phone after “getting a call” from shroud, TimTheTatMan, Ninja or another streamer.

As such, it makes for an interesting contrast with Doc cosplaying as a character whose only common theme is the desire to kill – in video games at least.

Speaking of the games, since the franchise was rebooted in 2016 as part of the World of Assassination trilogy, it has received critical acclaim. Enough so to make Doc even try his luck in the world of stealth.

That said, according to streaming Star, this was his first time ever playing a Hitman game despite seeing footage and gameplay of the other titles. Bravely, he decided to play on the game’s hardest difficulty, aiming for a zero death experience.

While the game may not exactly allow the Dr Disrespect to bring his signature violence, speed and momentum given its emphasis on stealth and infiltration, he seems to be enjoying it enough to see it through to its completion.
