TikTok star Addison Rae might be one of the biggest faces on the platform, but that doesn’t stop the influencer from receiving a fair amount of criticism — and it seems the hate is taking a major toll on her.

Addison Rae is one of TikTok’s top content creators, reportedly earning the most money out of any other influencer on the platform and even being one of the app’s most-followed personalities.

In spite of her bubbly attitude and cheerful selfies, Rae seems to be a favorite target for internet critics, most notably coming under fire over a video she’d reposted years ago that called the Black Lives Matter movement a “cult.”

Considering the brutal nature of TikTok commentary, it comes as little surprise that users also hit back at the star for dancing to a song about eating disorders for a sponsored post and later accused her of using a racial slur — and things are continuing to build up after her recent split with ex-boyfriend Bryce Hall.

Addison Rae and Bryce Hall parted ways in September, leading to mass speculation among fans regarding her love life.

Following their public breakup in early September, Rae claimed she was “losing friends” due to the criticism and speculation surrounding her love life, after fans piled on a certain Instagram photo by Troy Zarba that appeared to be taken at her home.

Rae has since uploaded two separate videos to her spam account, which both featured concerning captions that are sparking some debate among TikTok users.

“I feel like lately I’ve been trying my best at everything, and it’s just not enough,” Rae wrote in one video. “When your head and your heart are telling you two different things, which one do you choose, and did it end up being a good choice?”

“I always try not to let myself cry because I feel too vulnerable or weak, but I literally need to cry right now because I’ve held it in for so long,” she captioned another video.

Since these videos have come to light, fans are voicing their concern for the TikToker, with many noting the egregious hate Rae has received over the past few months.

Rae’s videos follow similar instances from names like Twitch star Alinity, who finally broke down during a July broadcast, admitting that the constant hate she receives had made her consider harmful actions.

No matter the situation, it’s always good to remember that influencers are still people — even if you only see them from behind a screen.

KSI calls out Jake Paul after YouTuber KO’s Nate Robinson in boxing bout

It’s been no time at all, but Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji has already called out Jake Paul ahead of their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, saying that after his performance against Nate Robinson, Paul stands no chance.

It was the fight everyone had their eyes on November 28. On the undercard of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr, YouTuber Jake Paul was set to bout with NBA star Nate Robinson.

What we got instead was a bloodbath. Robinson was trounced by Paul, getting knocked down multiple times before Paul laid the final blow in the second round. Robinson barely laid a glove on Paul despite coming out all guns blazing.

While millions watched, there was one spectator on the sidelines with more on the line than most ⁠— Jake Paul’s next prospective opponent, KSI.

The YouTuber has already faced off against Paul’s older brother Logan, beating the American not once but twice. Jake fancies his chances a little bit better, but KSI wasn’t impressed by the younger brother’s skills against Robinson.

As soon as the fight ended, KSI already started the war back up with the Pauls. “I saw nothing special from Jake lol. Soon come,” he said on Twitter.

The thinly-veiled threat at Jake Paul is alluding to their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, pending the current global situation.

Paul has been pretty vocal about making sure the fight goes ahead, saying he has a point to prove against the British YouTuber. “KSI vs Jake Paul is 100% gonna happen. If I die without that happening, I would be so upset. It has to happen, for the culture,” he said in September.

While Paul didn’t direct address KSI post-fight ⁠— instead calling out Conor McGregor for a bout ⁠— the rivalry between the two YouTubers is fierce.

One can only hope they do actually make good on their promise and get in the ring.
