YouTube star and beauty guru “Nikkie Tutorials” has finally released a video following the her viral “coming out” upload on January 13, admitting that she has learned the name of her blackmailer.

In Nikkie’s “coming out” video, she revealed that she’d been forced to announce her identity as a transgender woman, after an alleged blackmailer had purportedly threatened to release the information as a means to hurt her image.

Instead, Nikkie’s viral video became a beacon of hope and support for the LGBTQ+ community, with fellow makeup moguls like Jeffree Star and James Charles congratulating her bravery in the midst of such a stressful situation.

After speaking out on the aftermath via Twitter and Instagram stories, the YouTuber has finally released a full-length video discussing the topic at length, where she revealed that she has finally learned the identities of her blackmailers with police support.

According to Nikkie, she was being blackmailed not by a group of people but rather just one person who isn’t known by the YouTube community and someone she wasn’t even with familiar at the time.

YouTube star “Nikkie Tutorials” has learned the identity of her blackmailer, as revealed in her January 13 “Coming Out” video.

“Let me tell you, when I found out exactly who was behind all this, I was shocked,” she admitted. “This is not a person that any of you know. It is someone who I don’t even personally know. Finding out exactly who did this was frightening but freeing at the same time.”

However, rather than using her huge platform to expose the blackmailer, she claimed that she would keep the information to herself, knowing that she could “destroy” their lives and the lives of their family.

“If I out this person, am I gonna be doing the same thing as this person did to me?” she asked. “Do I want that? …do I want to put a human being in that same situation that I was in?”

That’s not all: the beauty guru even asked her fanbase to bring a halt to their “witch hunt” of the blackmailer, noting the many accusations that have transpired in wake of her announcement.

“We need to stop the witch hunt that I’ve seen going around,” she instructed. “…to be honest, I don’t think that is your story to tell. …You are destroying people’s lives who aren’t even involved in this.”

Although she wasn’t able to deliver the news on her own time, the YouTube star is largely being met with support on all sides in wake of a traumatizing event – and she’s putting a halt to the cycle of hatred, in spite of the horrific blackmail.

Joe Rogan was left shocked after hearing the crazy lengths that hugely popular American actor Matthew McConaughey’s went to to lose 50 pounds for his role in Dallas Buyers Club.

Joe Rogan has seen his fair share of top billed guests make his way into his podcast studios, both new and old. Some of his most well known guests include Elon Musk, Post Malone, and other famous faces across YouTube, business, Hollywood, and just about every conceivable entertainment sector.

He even recently set up a long anticipated episode with Kanye West, but their meeting was promptly cancelled along with several other episodes after one of the staff members revealed he needed to self-isolate.

However, fans of the podcast were treated to a huge celebrity from an entirely different industry in a prerecorded episode – actor Matthew McConaughey.

Matthew has starred in films such as the Wolf of Wall Street, Contact, and of course 2013 film Dallas Buyers Club. He enacted AIDS patient Ron Woodroof’s heartbreaking story, and underwent an enormous physical transformation for the role.

As he shares with Joe Rogan, the actor lost over 50 pounds in the process of preparing for the challenging acting experience, dedicating himself to accurately portraying the story as true to life as possible.

“I weighed 135. And you know this, I was not torturing myself,” Matthew explained. “I was militant. The hardest part was making the damn choice. It was my responsibility.”

With regard to the process of losing the weight, the actor said that he gave himself five months of a diet consisting of “tapioca pudding or whatever, three egg whites in the morning. Five ounces of fish couple vegetables for lunch, five ounces of fish couple vegetables for dinner.”

He said this is the diet that caused him to lose an insane 2.5 pounds a week, without any exercise. However, Joe was shocked to hear that Matthew was able to drink “as much wine as he wanted to drink,” joking “what kind of diet is this?”

“What I learned from it is that the body is more resilient than we give it credit for. The power I lost from the neck down equally or more sublimated to the neck up. My mental gain was so acute and so on point, that I was clinically smart.”

The incredible story was an insight into just how dedicated the beloved actor is to his roles, and certainly stunned Joe and the podcast viewers.
