Jaclyn Hill has taken to Twitter to open up about her experience of being kidnapped. She claims two men allegedly kidnapped her on the night of July 11th. The YouTuber stated that two men tried to physically force her into a car while she was alone outside.
However, the influencer was accused of lying about the incident and creating stories to get clout. After receiving immense backlash, the makeup guru took to her Instagram stories to respond to people who are accusing her of lying.
The influencer has created her own makeup brand, Jaclyn Cosmetics in 2019. She has since, launched various new collections and is famous for her highlighters and the infamous lipstick scandal where fuzzy white hair was stuck on the lipsticks.
After being called out for allegedly lying, the content creator said that seeing people say that she is doing this for attention has got her speechless. The influencer said, “Seeing people say that I’m doing this for attention has got me so livid I can’t even put it into words. I am so angry over this, people who are accusing me of lying about a guy grabbing me.”
Jaclyn stopped recording but continued later on as she explained that she had to stop because she was getting angry. She shared that she does not get emotional often but she is pissed at the moment. The influencer added the thought of what could have happened is worrying her and people are claiming that she is lying about the incident.
“….because of people like you, women don’t come forward when bad things happened.”
She said, “Just over the thought of what could have happened, and then there are people out here saying that I would lie about this. It just says so much more about your character than it does about mine. Like, how do you lie about something like this? I just don’t understand; it’s got me so angry because of people like you who are accusing me of lying; because of people like you; women don’t come forward when bad things happened.”
However, the makeup guru ended the video by saying it is because of people like these; that women do not have the courage to stand up and say what happened to them. She added it is because we accuse women of lying and that is unacceptable. Later on, fans sympathized with the YouTuber and supported her on Twitter.
Jaclyn Hill will be releasing her Summer Collection at 2 PM EST on Jacylncosmetics.com.
