YouTuber Ricky Dillon has come out as gay.

The 27-year-old uploaded a new video, with the simple title, “I’m Gay,” where he opens up about his journey to getting to this point.

“I’ve barely said this out loud, so I’m saying it several times to normalize it for myself,” Ricky says in the beginning of the video. “And I’m finally okay with it.”

“I started to slowly realize that I’m gay a couple of years ago, I would say 2017, and ever since I’ve slowly realized it more,” he went on. “Fast forward to this day, I am 1,000% percent sure that I’m gay.”

“i’ve been sobbing uncontrollably for the past hour. i’m overwhelmed with relief and emotion. i’ve never felt like this before ever. i can’t believe it,” Ricky tweeted after uploading the video.

Ricky has previously come out as asexual in 2016, before opening up later, saying, “I no longer 100% relate to that video. I don’t have a label for myself for the time being, I am figuring myself out, and I don’t label myself as asexual.”

Ricky Dillon Reveals Why He Left YouTube: 'It's Been the Best Decision'

Ricky Dillon is getting candid about his decision to take a step back from posting on YouTube

The 27-year-old social media star says that because of financial struggles, he wanted to find other ways to make money.

“The hardest thing I overcame this year was financial struggles. I don’t want to get too deep into it but I had a lot of tax issues and wasn’t doing too well financially. And in July, I made the decision to become a freelance editor,” Ricky explained in a new video.

He continued, “I now edit for a lot of YouTubers that you may know and love and I really love it. In fact, it’s actually kind of nice to edit for somebody else because you don’t have to stare at your own face for eight hours!”

“It’s been the best decision I’ve made for myself in a long time. I’m the most stable and content I’ve been in years. This year, I came to the point where I was like, ‘I can’t just do YouTube.’ It’s too risky, it’s stressful, it’s anxiety-inducing. So this summer I hit a really low point with my finances and was like, ‘I need to do something else.’ I love YouTube…but I needed more than just this to earn money,” Ricky concluded.

iJustine, Dolan Twins, Anna Akana & More React To Logan Paul's Japan Suicide Forest Video

Digital creators and social stars are not happy with Logan Paul after his controversial video he posted over the weekend about his trip to Japan.

In the video, Logan paid a visit to Aokigahara, a forest at the base of Mt. Fuji known as the “Japanese Suicide Forest” and upon coming upon a dead man’s body, he included the footage in the video.

iJustine, Ricky Dillon, Eva Gutowski, Anna Akana and more social stars are disappointed in Logan and have shared their thoughts about what he did on social media.

“I’m hoping that video is “just a prank bro” – which would be EVEN WORSE. There is just no possible way anyone who witnessed that in person could laugh, or make jokes, let alone FILM IT,” iJustine wrote. “I’m beyond disturbed and I’m an adult. No child should be subjected to that, real or not.”

Justine even called out YouTube about the video, urging them to have repercussions for this kind of content.

“@YouTube you CANNOT ignore this. You have so many incredibly talented content creators who strive to make this platform a better place. Stop promoting the trash that makes us all look bad.”

While Logan apologized and deleted the video, the damage has been done.

Ricky Dillon Addresses Body Shaming On Purposeful Weight Gain

Ricky Dillon Addresses Body Shaming On Purposeful Weight Gain

Ricky Dillon has gained 50 pounds recently and now he is opening up about the gain.

The 25-year-old YouTube star posted a new video on Tuesday (December 26) to talk about his weight gain and address the issue of body shaming.

“I don’t usually do videos on serious topics but I think it’s important to every once in a while,” he says in the beginning. “Yes, my title is pretty dramatic and it’s not click bait. I have gained 50 pounds this year, most of it towards the end of the year, recently. And first of all, it’s been on purpose.”

“I am really into health and fitness, and I have kind of looked and been the same for like 10 years,” he continued. “I just wanted to switch things up and I work with a really great personal trainer. He has pushed me crazy hard. But basically I have purposefully been gaining weight to build muscle, to build mass. It’s called bulking.”

“[Some comments] have been really nice… But there’s a lot they are kind of rude and unneccessary,” Ricky said. “There are some that are like, ‘Wow, Ricky is getting really fat.’ ‘Ricky has gained so much weight, he looks horrible now.’ ‘Ricky suddenly looks 10 years older.’”

Since releasing the video, Ricky has received a ton of positive feedback for standing up and raising awareness on body shaming. Watch his video below…
