In an Instagram photoset of herself and her boyfriend, Jaclyn said that she had noticed that people were making comments about her body,

"I have never been this insecure about my physical appearance in my life," Jaclyn wrote on Instagram. In the post, Jaclyn told fans that she has "gained 20 pounds in the last 7 weeks".

Addressing what she says are physical changes to her appearance, Jaclyn told fans that they would notice her looking different and would "have to deal with it".

I have gained 20 pounds in the last 7 weeks. Im being transparent with you guys, because I have been getting lots of comments about my weight. I have never been this insecure about my physical appearance in my life. Sweatpants are literally the only thing that fits me right now & ive had to go up 2 sizes in my jeans. But this guy @farnumgrindtime still tells me how beautiful I am every single day & still picks me up and makes me feel like the most special girl in the world. He speaks to my heart everyday & I genuinely believe God himself blessed me with him. He’s a special one💕 Side note: you’re going to notice in my future videos.... my face is bigger, my arms are bigger, my entire body is bigger. But you’ll just have to deal with it, cause this is me❤️

Lipstick controversy aside, commenting on people's appearance in this way is never nice or necessary. Good on Jaclyn for opening up to her fans.
