TikTok star Addison Rae has hit out at how lies spread on social media, after fans appeared to leak her voter registration ahead of the US presidential election.

Being one of the most followed creators on the platform, Rae (real name Addison Easterling) attracts a lot of attention from TikTok users worldwide — both good and bad.

Now, she seems to have had enough, calling out the spread of misinformation about her across social media and popular pages online. In a series of posts across Twitter, Instagram and TikTok, Rae has addressed the issue head on.

In one comment on a popular Instagram page, following a post regarding a TikTok that appeared to leak Rae’s voter registration, she said: “Everything I’ve been on here for lately is based off of rumors or assumptions. It’s so sad and I’m honestly so anxious about everything because it’s crazy how warped people’s perceptions become of you off the internet.”

This comes after she explained that the voter registration ‘leak’ wasn’t real or accurate, mainly because she is from Louisiana (not California, as the video suggests) and has never registered to vote.

After a flurry of negative comments from fans who obviously hadn’t seen her responses or understood the full picture, Addison took to Twitter to vent her feelings.

“Stop spending time bringing others down with untruthful information,” she implored of her followers in one tweet, clearly denying the legitimacy of the ‘leak.’

She posted again shortly after, saying: “Growing up our parents always said ‘don’t believe anything you see on the internet’ yet everyone somehow trusts everything they read on here…”

Addison wasn’t happy with the spreading of misinformation about her.

Obviously, regardless of Addison’s political leanings, she deserves the same privacy as everyone else when it comes to information such as her voter registration.

While that might not be so easy to do when you’re in the public eye, those spreading this information need to be extra careful about what they’re saying, especially if there’s a chance it’s not even true.

$375,000 Pokemon Trading Card Game box opening ends in absolute tragedy

A Pokemon Trading Card Game livestream ended in disaster after it was quickly discovered that the booster packs were fake. The YouTube channel spent over $375k on the 1st Edition base set box, only for it to be resealed. 

Despite making its debut in 1999, the Pokemon TCG has exploded in popularity over the past two years. The hobby hit an all-time high in October when influencer Logan Paul opened a base set booster box he paid $216k for while livestreaming.

However, things didn’t work out as well for another YouTube channel who paid $375k for the same item. The livestream unboxing of the rare collectible quickly turned tragic when it was discovered that the TCG item was actually fake.

Rare Pokemon TCG box opening ends in complete disaster

The event was hosted by YouTube channel ‘Dumb Money Live’ and included popular Pokemon content creators such as Lee ‘Leonhart’ Seinfeld. The rare 1st Edition base set booster box was bought for a record-breaking $375 through Logan Paul’s collectible trader ‘Collectables Guru.’

“The owner of the box supposedly bought three boxes when he was a child. They sat in the gun safe the entire time,” the Pokemon dealer explained. However, they quickly realized something was amiss after breaking the seal. Several booster packs were different colors, and some weren’t even 1st Edition.

“Oh no. That is a major f**king deal!” Guru exclaimed. The personality opening the box then revealed the problem: “It’s not even base set cards, these are Jungles! Wow. This is a resealed box. It’s random!”

(Topic starts at 35:41)

Upset, Collectable Guru called up the seller and explained that the box was resealed. “We opened the box literally live and they’re resealed packs. There is like base set 2 mixed in, half of them are 1st Edition. But they are all resealed, this is absolutely unacceptable. How is this going to be taken care of immediately?”

Stunned by the whole thing, Leonhart stood by and said, “Oh my gosh, I was not expecting that.” Guru came back and updated the group and explained that the seller had two other boxes that they were going to open first before bringing them back to the YouTubers.

The YouTubers were floored after the rare Pokemon box was fake.

To add salt to the wound, the box opening was done on stream for charity. Dumb Money Live gave an update and addressed the situation a day later stating: “I don’t know a single person in my network that hasn’t been defrauded as an investor. You have to give sellers a benefit to make this right.”

At the time of writing, the situation has not been entirely rectified. The channel will open a booster pack on October 30 live to verify that the second box is actually real. However, it appears that if this one is fake as well, the seller claims they will refund the content creators their $375k.
