Beauty vlogger Jaclyn Hill has no time for the haters! On Monday, April 13, the 29-year-old YouTube star took to Instagram and clapped back at body-shaming trolls who left negative comments about her sitting in bed and eating a burger.
“I miss the days when I chose to leave events early and isolate myself,” Jaclyn initially captioned the photo. She later edited the caption and added, “Also, for all the people making comments about my weight and me eating a burger… go find yourself a life.”
The makeup mogul also addressed the caption change in the comments section and explained that she was receiving tons of criticism about the snap.
“When I posted this photo, the first 30 minutes were TONS of comments about my weight. That’s why I edited by caption. Now the love is overflowing the negative. Plus, I blocked and deleted a lot of people because it’s not needed,” Jaclyn responded to a fan.
Previously, the social media star opened up about her mental health struggles and admitted that making “poor decisions” led to her 20-pound weight gain. Back in February 2020, the makeup mogul got candid in a lengthy video and explained how she has struggled since her lipstick scandal in June 2019. After being slammed by YouTube’s beauty community, she admitted that she turned to alcohol in order to cope with her worsening anxiety.
“At the end of the day, to cope with my anxiety and my depression, I turned to alcohol and started drinking to fix what I was feeling mentally. I had been using alcohol to self-medicate,” she said. “On days where I would be so filled with anxiety and I would drink more than other days, I would wake up in the morning and my face would be so swollen and my eyes would be so puffy and I would just cry. So, when people tell me, ‘You’re fat. Your face is swollen. You need to stop getting fillers.’ It triggers me in a way, like, oh my God. I wouldn’t look like this if I didn’t make such poor decisions. I wouldn’t look like this if I didn’t hurt myself by self-medicating with alcohol.”
