Trans

Trans YouTuber NikkieTutorials has a new gig – taking the transphobic trash out of her mentions.

The make-up guru, 25, has been vocal about her struggles to tamper the transphobia she is facing after a blackmail plot forced her to come out as trans in January.

Showing a defiant front, the social media icon, real name Nikkie de Jager, posted a shining selfie where she basically invented the 100-megawatt smile and captioned it: “She’s a happy girl.”

Yet, some users attempted to drag de Jager down by deliberately misgendering her and hurling transphobic abuse. Which, unlike de Jager’s eyeshadow, is not a cute look for them.

De Jager decimated her transphobic haters, as to be expected, in a follow-up tweet Tuesday.

She wrote: “Hahahahaaa… some of you think y’all really clever calling me ‘he’ and ‘boy’ on my latest post.

“You’re so funny, haha…

“Ya, get the f**k outta here.”

Countless Twitter users rushed to both praise and defend de Jaeger. 

NikkieTutorials: ‘It’s going to take time to get back into YouTube.’

In a Valentine’s Day video, the Dutch vlogger spoke about her struggle to get back behind the camera.

She said: “So much has been going on in my life that, right now, all I need is to just sit down in my studio and play with make-up, so that is exactly what we’re doing.”

“Ever since doing my coming out in this studio, I don’t want to keep talking about it, but every time I’m in this studio, it brings me back to what I felt in that moment.

“It’s going to take a little bit of time for me to sit here and not think about that, all of that. But I’ll manage. I just wanted to let you know that sometimes I get really nervous in here.”
