It’s no secret that TikTok is home to some harmful trends, but one of these fads took a seriously wrong turn after stars Addison Rae and Chase Hudson got caught up in a scheme that spread harmful rumors about them.

As TikTok continues to grow in popularity, so too do its plethora of viral trends, which include everything from harmless dances to downright physically dangerous stunts like putting nutmeg in water and drinking it for hallucinogenic effects.

While it’s generally quite easy to sort the good from the bad, sometimes, the bad wins out — and when combined with TikTok’s dark side of bullies and harassers, leads to a cocktail of online toxicity.

Addison Rae and Chase Hudson became a victim of such toxicity in late September, after a trend from online trolls asked users to start spreading rumors that the two have been secretly dating this entire time, seeming to hint that this even took place during Chase’s relationship with Charli D’Amelio.

That’s not all; this fad even asked viewers to claim that none other than Kim Kardashian was aware of the fake scandal and had leaked a video of the two stars after the cancellation of “Keeping up with the Kardashians,” alleging that Addison was responsible for the show’s demise.

Although it may have been clear this was just a prank, it seems the rumors caught on, and soon after, comments came pouring into the two stars’ TikTok videos asking them about their relationship status.

Luckily, Addison was quickly made aware of the scheme and spoke out against the harmful rumors, writing in a comment, “I don’t like this :(“

Other high-profile TikTokers came to Addison’s defense, with the likes of Larray writing, “What’s this girl’s TikTok? I just wanna talk.”

This is far from the first time Rae has been the target of egregious online trolling; in fact, it seems to be a popular fad for commenters to send hate toward the social media star, with some critics even claiming to have leaked information concerning her voter registration.

Rae has since debunked this rumor, but this latest incident just goes to show that haters have no bounds — especially when they can hide behind a phone screen.

Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins continues to make waves that transcend the gaming industry as the popular content creator has just signed to the biggest talent agency in Hollywood.

Despite being a turbulent year with the shutdown of Mixer, Ninja has continued to take big steps forward. His return to Twitch was a landmark event, his very own Fortnite tournaments have been a huge draw, and now, he’s rounding out 2020 with an unprecedented move.

Ninja has signed with the Creative Artists Agency “for representation in all areas,” according to The Hollywood Reporter. From Tom Cruise to Chris Evans and plenty of others, CAA represents many of the most recognizable celebrities around the globe.

The agency covers a wide range of figures from sporting stars to musicians, actors, and obviously, the gaming industry too. In fact, a familiar face in Guy ‘Dr Disrespect’ Beahm, was among the first to join CAA.

This puts Ninja in rarified air alongside many of the world’s most popular A-list celebrities. One of the biggest names in the industry, he currently boasts over 24 million subscribers on YouTube and holds the record for the most-followed Twitch account.

“Super excited for this next chapter in my career,” he tweeted on October 12. “Officially signed with CAA.”

It’s too early to tell what kind of opportunities they might help bring Ninja’s way, though taking Dr Disrespect as an example, it’s clear the agency will be able to create some exciting moments. From a mysterious storyline with WWE’s Undertaker, to a more recent Madden session with Snoop Dogg, CAA appears to have been helping the Doc in big ways.

Logan Paul, Amanda Cerny, and SungWon ‘ProZD’ Cho are just some of the more general internat personalities represented by the agency. Perhaps more and more collaborations with big-name creators could be on the way for Ninja.
