Addison rae is one of the most popular creators in TikTok, with an impressive fan base of over 44 million followers on the app, as well as millions on Instagram Y Twitter. However, after the star tried to use that platform to publicize some of the problems and protests ongoing in the US, he was met with backlash for his approach.
Addison rae has more than 18 million followers on Instagram. The star of TikTok uploaded a series of selfies to Instagram on June 5, but some fans objected to the fact that she had used a quote from Martin Luther King like his legend.
American singer Gus Dapperton was one of those who hit the influencer, calling her “superficial” for uploading selfies along with her message of support for the BLM movement.
“Just because you caption your selfies with an MLK quote doesn’t mean this isn’t shallow as shit,” he commented, after re-sharing the post on his Instagram story.
Addison removed the description from the post and apologized to his fans shortly after, claiming that while he believes the quote, it might not have been the best way to get his message across.
“My intentions are pure and this quote is something I believe so deeply,” he explained, apologizing to his fans, “I am so sorry and I will dismiss it.”
