Following the YouTube video, Jackie received an onslaught of hate and backlash, many claiming she used Brandon and was obligated to give back every gift he had ever given her. She took to Twitter to respond to the hate and said, “I gave my heart out to something for about 5 years. I know this isn’t the clarification that most of you wanted, but this is my life & not just 20 minutes of it.”
She tried to explain that a 20 minute YouTube video does not show every angle of her decision to distance herself from Brandon. “I make decisions that are best for me no matter what & I could only hope you all understand that. All I’ve ever give [sic] was love & will continue to do so,” she continued.
