Jaclyn Hill hits out at “verbal abuse” from YouTuber insulting her weight

YouTube star and makeup mogul Jaclyn Hill opened up to fans in an emotional video in early February, explaining the physical toll her failed lipstick launch had taken on her body — but some fellow creators weren’t sympathetic.

Jaclyn Hill’s 2019 makeup launch was met with backlash from unsatisfied customers across the net, who uploaded multiple photos of lipsticks covered in fuzz, bumps, and even completely crushed in half.

The YouTuber explained the fallout from being “canceled” over her lipsticks in early 2020, admitting that she’d turned to alcohol as a way to “self-medicate” her debilitating anxiety over the outrage.

With her alcohol consumption came significant weight gain, which the YouTuber claimed had swollen her face — but despite fans’ overwhelming support, another beauty tuber took the opportunity to make a seemingly snide remark.

Fellow beauty guru “Eden The Doll” replied to an Instagram post covering Hill’s vulnerable video with “Bloated boots,” referencing Jaclyn’s weight gain.

A screenshotted Instagram comment from fellow beauty guru “Eden the Doll” is riling up some fans of Jaclyn Hill.

This comment didn’t go unnoticed by Hill, who responded in a Tweet on February 4 where she appeared to label Eden’s comments as “verbal abuse” and gave a call to action for her subscribers.

“These types of comments make ANYONE feel like they can’t post a picture if they are not ‘perfect,’” she wrote. “I’m so over it and won’t tolerate it anymore. There is a difference between freedom of speech and verbal abuse. Me and my subscribers will make a change in 2020!”

Eden the Doll followed up her comment with a post via Instagram stories, where she clarified that she harbored no ill will toward Hill and claimed she was merely repeating her caption because she could “relate” to her weight gain.

“I would NEVER have commented if I thought people (or Jaclyn) would have taken it seriously,” she explained. “I apologize to her and anyone who took it the wrong way.”

Hill has yet to respond to Eden’s statement at the time of writing, but it’s safe to say that fans are sticking with Jaclyn in wake of a video that shines light on the dark side of internet fame.

Fortnite players know all too well what it’s like to land in a hot spot and struggle to find a weapon, including TimTheTatMan, who hilariously rage quit after he found nothing but fishing rods.

Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar has jumped back on the Fortnite bandwagon in Season 5. The latest update has brought a lot of old stars back, and for the most part, the reception has been positive.

In Tim’s case though, it hasn’t been all sunshine and roses. He wanted to enjoy everything the new season has to offer. Instead, all he got was fishing rods and lots of them.

TimTheTatman is a talented gamer in his own right, but he’s also hilarious to watch.

TimTheTatman descended onto Salty Towers with his squad, looking for an ideal place to land. Unfortunately, the two vacant rooftops he saw both had fishing rods. “Oh good, a fishing pole, oh good, another fishing pole, okay,”  he said.

He decided to land on a house instead. “If I come in here and there’s a fishing pole, I’m leaving,” he said while breaking into the attic with his pickaxe. “I’m literally not kidding. I’m backing out if there’s a fishing pole in here.”

Fortunately, there wasn’t one in the attic, but there was nothing else either, so he dove a little deeper. He dropped down the staircase, turned left it into the kitchen, and hilariously found another fishing rod staring into his soul.

It’s not ideal to find a fishing rod as your first weapon in Fortnite.

Without saying a word, TimTheTatman opened up the menu, quit the game, and placed his hands on his head in disbelief. “I’m not doing it,” he said, as he struggled to find the words to sum up his rage.

“The two guns I was going to land on [were] fishing poles,” he added. “I open up a door and go left, fishing pole. I’ll try again. When you guys are done, I’ll be ready to go again. I’m not going to play that game. I’m not going to do it.”

There’s nothing worse than landing in a spot surrounded by enemies and finding nothing useful.

Still, TimTheTatman’s fans were rolling on the floor laughing after seeing him get so riled up about it. Plus, the fact it happened to be a fishing rod made it even funnier.
