YouTube star and makeup mogul Jaclyn Hill has once again come under scrutiny from fans — this time, after uploading a series of concerning photos to her Instagram story in regards to her health.

Hill opened up about her mental and physical wellbeing during an emotional video in February, where she admitted to “self-medicating” her debilitating anxiety with alcohol after her 2019 lipstick launch was met with severe vitriol.


This wouldn’t be the last time she spoke on the issue, either, later explaining that her subsequent YouTube hiatus was due to focusing on improving her physical health.

Although Hill had explained that she was working with an “amazing team” of doctors and therapists to “detox” her body following her stressful 2019, fans were still concerned after she uploaded a few pics of the process to her Instagram story.


The photos showed Hill sitting on the toilet, while a friend held up her IV bag, while another showed the star holding the bag above her head with a caption that read: “I have no shame in my mental & physical health journey. Five hours a day every day, baby!”

Jaclyn Hill’s Instagram stories, showing the star holding up an IV bag, prompted some concern from fans.

Apparently, Hill’s photos caused some concern and confusion among fans, prompting her to explain the pics in a lengthy notes post later on.

“I opened up about a month ago about how I turned to alcohol to cope with anxiety and depression and developed a dependency on it,” she clarified. “I’ve recently come to terms with where I’m at and decided to seek all the professional help I can get.”


The beauty guru went on to say that she’s comfortable sharing her journey with her fanbase, claiming that she is “feeling strong right now” and is “excited for the future.”

A 72-year-old Twitch streamer that went by the name of OldBuzzardt has sadly passed away, with family members leaving the announcement on his Twitch channel to let fans know.

OldBuzzardt, known to friends and fans as Buzz, who previously worked in law enforcement, including stints in the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Army Active Reserve, would often share his Fortnite gameplay to his loyal fans, with an infectiously happy spirit about him.


Buzz had over 80,000 followers on the platform, and even had his own Creator Code on Epic Games’ hit battle royale title, clearly loving what he was doing and going live almost every day for his viewers to catch up with him.

Unfortunately, on October 17, ahead of a scheduled Fortnite stream, Buzz passed away and his family took it upon themselves to launch his stream with a message to fans letting them know what has happened, and even offering a place for his fans to find support.

Buzz loved playing Fortnite, sharing his gameplay on Twitch and YouTube.

The livestream simply contained a still image of Buzz, looking as happy as ever, with a few words.

“It is with a heavy heart we have to inform you that Buzz passed away at home on 10/17/2020,” it read. “We have left the stream and chat open for you all to gather and pay your respects. We hope you know how much you all meant to Buzz.”

It went on to say that his stream was and will continue to be a very special place, before explaining that the moderators will be in the chat offering support, with fans able to leave a nice word or talk about their favorite memories of Buzz with others.


Buzz was a great reminder to his viewers and the wider community that age is really just a number in gaming: while Fortnite was typically looked at as a kid’s game, he jumped on the game everyday and had a great time, fostering a positive and lighthearted community.

We extend our deepest sympathies and condolences to Buzz’s family, friends and viewers at this sad time.
