On January 13, fellow YouTubers Jeffree Star, Gabbie Hanna, Shane Dawson and James Charles tweeted out their thoughts on NikkieTutorials' "I'm Coming Out" video.

Let's rewind.


For those who don't know, Nikkie de Jager, better known by her YouTube Channel name "NikkieTutorials", uploaded a video where she came out as transgender. She revealed that she'd originally wanted to tell her story under her own conditions, but because she had been "blackmailed by people that wanted to leak [her] story to the press", she was forced to make the video to take power back into her own hands.

"At the end of the day, my story is beautiful. I'm proud of my story. No more holding back. No more secrets. From today on, you get me. And since I'm sharing this with you today, I feel like my relationship with all of you is going to be a whole lot more open than it ever has been int he past. I think I'm ready for that."

"Today is the day I am free. I get to be me finally."



Not long after, fellow YouTubers took to Twitter to express their support:


"YOU are such an inspiration and so f***ing brave! Love you and I’m so proud to call you a friend 💯" - Jeffree Star

"Whoever blackmailed nikkie made the fatal error of underestimating the power of a fearless, proud, unapologetic female. can’t prey on shame if it doesn’t exist. we got your back ma 👊🏼" - Gabbie Hanna

"LOVE U SO MUCH NIKKIE 😭❤️👏🏻👏🏻" - Shane Dawson

"I’m so happy for nikkie I cant stop smiling today :’)" - James Charles


Even Grindr, a dating app focusing on the LGBTQ+ community, tweeted out:


"we love you queen 💘" - Grindr



After less than two hours on YouTube, the video trended at #2, and not long after, trended at #1.
