After Addison Rae’s mom jokingly threatened to post the draft of Addison dancing to Cardi B’s WAP if she wasn’t nice to her, she has decided to get in there first and post it of her own accord.

When Cardi B’s new song WAP featuring Megan Thee Stallion dropped in earlier August, it became almost instantly viral on TikTok. Choreographer Brian Esperon uploaded a dance video to the song, and TikTok users have been doing their level best to replicate it.

However, the dance has come with some drawbacks, as given the song’s lyrics, some younger users are finding it tricky to rehearse, record and upload the dance under the watchful eye of their parents.

16-year-old TikTok sensation Charli D’Amelio was no exception, as she tweeted on August 18 “my mom won’t let me post the wap dance, but it’s in my drafts.” In an interview with the Hollywood Fix, Charli said that it’s because the dance is “inappropriate.”

But Addison Rae’s mom took a different approach to her 19-year-old daughter’s WAP draft, saying in a TikTok that “dear Addison Rae… please remember to be nice to your mama… she’s just one small click away from posting her WAP draft.

Addison shared the video alongside the caption “omg I love you mom ur the best person ever!!!! Brb going to buy you flowers.”

Clearly the looming threat of her draft emerging gave Addison the push to finally upload it in a post that at the time of writing has over 6.8 million likes and 33 million views. She captioned it “I had to do it before my mom did… goodnight dc.”

While the WAP dance has caused the moms of TikTok to raise their collective brow, it’s certainly pulling in a huge amount of views thanks to Brian Esperon’s captivating choreography.

Twitch powerhouse Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel has taken a swipe at some of the more impassioned Taylor Swift fans who rally around her and “attack” anyone she is beefing with on social media.

xQc isn’t one to hold back his opinions. In the last couple of months alone, he’s opened up the drama between him and Jaryd ‘Summit1G’ Lazar, debated with Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and his wife over charity streams, and accused Twitch streamer Katerino of cheating on CallMeCarson.

Now, he’s got pop sensation Taylor Swift in his sights. Well, her fans, at least.

xQc throws Taylor Swift fans some shade

xQc claims he has nothing but respect and admiration for Taylor Swift herself. However, he has thrown some shade at her fans. More specifically, he believes the portion of her fans who draw comparisons between her and others and attack them on social media are a nuisance.

xQc stated that he believes Taylor Swift “kinda had to go with the industry and whatnot” once she became a superstar, and that he understands and respects it. “But the problem is… her fans and her fan base,” he added.

He goes on to describe a hypothetical situation in which Kanye West says, “I just sold… 600 million dollars worth of products… just to let you guys know.”

xQc then re-enacts Taylor Swift fans spamming Kanye with “Taylor ended your career” comments. To reiterate his point, he acts out another situation in which the fans say “Taylor Swift ended your career overnight.”

Taylor Swift has over 140 million followers on Instagram, so xQc is definitely punching up by taking on her fanbase.

xQc is referring to a feud between Kim, Kanye, and Taylor Swift

A word for word summary doesn’t do it justice. xQc’s impressions are hilarious and questionable, to say the least. But it’s something that has happened on social media before, and he felt strongly enough about it to make a comment.

Taylor Swift feuded with both Kim Kardashian and Kanye West earlier this year, and although it seems like the trio has more or less made amends, some of her fans weren’t ready to forgive and forget.

Either way, it doesn’t matter too much whether you agree with xQc or not. After all, it’s nothing more than his opinion on something trivial. But the main thing is his awful impersonations are well worth the watch and provide good entertainment value.
