Nikkie de Jager also called out people posting incorrect videos 'exposing' who blackmailed her into coming out as trans.

NikkieTutorials has put out her first YouTube video since coming out and she revealed that police have identified her blackmailer.

Earlier this month (13 Jan), YouTuber Nikkie de Jager came out as trans in a video titled: 'I'm Coming Out'. She said: "I can't believe I'm saying this today to all of you for the entire world to see but damn it feels good to finally do it. I am transgender." She added: "Today is the day I am free. I get to be me finally." The video has since been viewed over 33 million times.

In a new video named, 'Responding to My Coming Out', Nikkie said: "Let's talk about the blackmailing. First of all, I think we need to stop the witch hunt that I've been seeing going around. I've been seeing so many truth videos out there saying: 'Oh my God! This is Nikkie's blackmailer. We've found the guy...,' and to be honest, I don't think that is your story to tell."

Nikkie then added: "If anyone's going to have the right to tell more about these blackmailers, it's going to be me. No other person or media outlet should be talking about my blackmailer when they only know half of the truth. You are destroying people's lives that aren't even involved in this and I ask you to stop this."

Nikkie went on to explain: "With the help of police, we have found out who exactly was blackmailing me. I have their names, their phone numbers, their email addresses, I even know where they live. Let me tell you, when I found out exactly who was behind this all, I was shocked because this is not a person that any of you know. It is someone that I don't even know."

She continued: "Finding out exactly who did this was frightening but freeing at the same time. It's frightening because you know that someone is out there so evil to be able to do this. You are sick in your head for doing that...but it's also freeing because now I know who exactly did this. I can keep an eye out and it gives me perspective."

Nikkie then opened up about how she was conflicted as to whether or not she should reveal her blackmailer's name. She said: "If I out this person, am I gonna be doing the same as this person did to me? Do I want to put a human being in that same situation that I was in."

Nikkie ended the video saying that she's decided not to reveal who blackmailed to her. She stated: "I don't want to lower myself to that level. I am creating my own level. I am better than that."
