Nikkie De Jager, aka NikkieTutorials has opened up about why she doesn’t want to identify her blackmailer.
The Youtuber came out as Transgender this month, after revealing that someone tried to blackmail her into coming out.
Nikkie reveals she transitioned when she was a young teen, with the full support of her mother.
She received lots of praise from fans all over the world, but others are trying to find the person who blackmailed her.
The 25-year-old uploaded a follow-up video thanking fans for their support.
“Now it’s time to talk about something that a lot of you guys are waiting on,” she said.
“Let’s talk about the blackmailing. First of all, we need to stop the witch hunt that I’ve been seeing going around. I’ve been seeing so many ‘Truth’ videos going around… ‘Oh my god, this is Nikkie’s blackmailer. We found the guy. Oh my god, we found the girl. This and this person are Nikkie’s blackmailers.'”
She explained that it’s up to her to reveal the person if she wanted to.
“To be honest, I don’t think that is your story to tell. If anyone is going to have the right to tell on these blackmailers, it’s gonna be me,” she continued. “How I deal with this situation, what information I would like to share, at the end of the day, it’s my story. You are destroying people’s lives that aren’t even involved in this. I ask that you stop this.”
Nikkie went on to say that she worked with the police on the matter.
“Let me tell you, when I found out exactly who was behind this all, I was shocked,” she shared. “This is not a person that any of you know. It is someone that I don’t even personally know.”
She went on to say that she doesn’t want to stoop to the level of the person who blackmailed her, which is why she’s not revealing their name.
“With this platform that we have right here, I have the power to destroy a life. I have the ability to not only destroy the life of my blackmailer, but also the life of his family, his kids, his friends…,” she explained. “Ever since finding out the true name of my blackmailer, that has been going on in my mind. If I out this person, am I gonna be doing the same as this person did to me?”
She added, “I don’t want to lower myself to his level. No, I am creating my own level… I am better than that.”
We love Nikkie for her strength and maturity in this difficult matter! Let’s all be a little more Nikkie in 2020!
