TikTok star Addison Rae has returned from her unexpected social media hiatus — but she’s still being bombarded with rumors about her disappearance, which she shut down with a concerning comment.

Addison Rae took a break from posting online last week, following multiple accusations of racist behavior toward the star due to a video she’d shared four years ago.

Rae returned to the internet with an apology for the video and has since been posting to her accounts on her usual schedule, but it seems that her return hasn’t halted the many rumors surrounding the star’s disappearance.

In fact, some fans even speculated that Rae was pregnant — a claim that the Sway House’s Bryce Hall shut down in a paparazzi interview, but subsequent footage of the TikToker covering her stomach fueled the fan theories even further.

TikTok star Addison Rae is being met with rumors on all sides regarding her surprising social media hiatus last week.

Some fans felt Rae was touching her stomach throughout the paparazzi interview because she was pregnant, which the star addressed in a comment underneath a TikTok that reuploaded the footage.

“Is Addison Rae…?” the video’s caption read.

“No, just insecure,” Rae replied.

This wouldn’t be the first time that Rae has spoken out about her “insecurities,” by far; in fact, she came forward with multiple statements on the critical nature of TikTok comments in past months, admitting that they had a negative effect on her self-esteem.

“I’ve seen 5-10 Tweets and TikToks today talking negatively about my body and weight,” Rae wrote in an April Tweet. “It makes me feel insecure, but luckily I’m looking at it in a different light. I’ve been very motivated to start eating better and working out everyday to become the healthiest version of myself!”

Rae went on to call such comments “hurtful” and encouraged those suffering from online harassment to “love yourself” — and it seems this sentiment is spreading online in wake of her latest comment on the subject, with many fans speaking out in support of body positivity.

For now, it looks like Rae is back in action as a top TikToker in spite of the recent backlash against her — and she’s definitely not carrying a bun in the oven!

FaZe Clan reveal FaZe 5’s Top 100 finalists & next recruitment steps

FaZe Clan’s FaZe 5 recruitment is nearing its finale, as 95 of the final top 100 candidates have officially been revealed. Next, the community will be able to select the five remaining content creators before FaZe announces the top 100’s challenge on Monday, October 26.

Back in August, FaZe Clan set the gaming world ablaze with a #FaZe5 challenge that gives everyone a chance to sign up and compete to become one of five new recruits to the organization in 2020. 

After months of deliberations and countless submissions, FaZe have tried to trim the finalists down to a top 100 before moving on to the next round of the challenge. But, as it turns out, the deciders are struggling to finish off their list and want to enlist the public for some help.

In a brand-new, highly anticipated hype video, FaZe announced 95 finalists with submission videos and highlights overlaid on some heavy, uptempo electronic music. Then, FaZe CBass explains what’s next.

Unsurprisingly, the majority of the content creators who made the final cut seem to be avid gamers focused on Call of Duty, Fortnite, Valorant, and Apex Legends. But there is some diversity, as fans might notice some highlights of Fall Guys, but then also visual art, music, and even clothing design.

Some of Call of Duty: Warzone’s more successful streamers and competitors also made the cut, as Nio, SuperEvan, and WarsZ all made the top 95. It’s not all high-level FPS streamers though, as the FaZe boys appear to have cast a wide net for the newest batch of recruits.

Among the more interesting content creators who are reaching the next round, the six-year-old Rowdy Rogan and MontoyaTwinz (Mya and Myka Montoya) are easy standouts. (It remains unclear if the Montoyas would take up one or two spots if they get into the final five.)

After flying through 95 impressive candidates, CBass cuts in to let people know that the list is too hard to cap off. 

“Everything we’ve looked through, we’ve been impressed by. We’ve sat through and watched absolutely everything we can and the honest truth is that there are way more than 100 people who are deserving of moving on to the next round of this challenge.”

Since the boys in red, black, and white can’t choose the final five, they’re allowing the community to do so. If fans have a creator who didn’t make the top 100, but deserves to, then they just need to hashtag “FaZe5” on Twitter and tag said creator. Then, on Monday, October 26, the official top 100 and next steps will be announced.
