Addison Rae responds after Dixie calls her out for shading Charli D’Amelio

TikTok stars are no stranger to drama, and Addison Rae had to clear the air after being called out by Dixie D’Amelio and others for shading her sister Charli earlier in her career.

The timeline is simple. Back in November, before Rae had met and forged friendships with either of the D’Amelio sisters, the popular TikTok star had liked certain comments that questioned Charli’s popularity against Rae’s.

With these liked comments recently coming to light, the star’s older sister, Dixie, came to her defense and called out haters for their “jealousy.”

Like Charli’s quarantine cooking show with Marshmello, there’s more than one cook in the metaphorical kitchen, as some fans believed that Dixie’s ire was actually directed toward Darianka Sanchez, who has recently come under fire for being one of the app’s most hateful stars.

But this beef was confirmed to be about Rae, as she used her Instagram platform to clarify the drama, apologize for her actions, and express how much she loves and supports Charli. 


Per Rae’s explanation, she was in a very toxic phase of her life following the ending of “an extremely toxic and mentally abusive relationship that tore my heart to shreds,” and this led to her desperately seeking validation at the expense of more successful stars—of which the app has only really had one: Charli.

Rae was clear that she regrets her actions, and doesn’t think the context should excuse them, but most importantly that it’s the 16-year-old’s choice if she’d like to forgive her.

On the D’Amelio side, Dixie appears to have accepted Rae’s apology and Charli has suggested she is unbothered by the beef. The former has since liked fan made content of her and Rae, as well as Rae’s “live, learn, love” Tweet while the latter has simply posted about being unfazed. 


It’s hard for anyone to know exactly what went down behind the scenes, but TikTok fans will be sure to continue monitoring the D’Amelio and Rae social accounts to see if the presumed friends continue supporting each other. 

And if these friendships end over liked comments before they even met, that will only fuel speculation that there’s deeper beef at play here.


Dave Chappelle finally tells Joe Rogan when he’ll do a full podcast

The Joe Rogan Experience podcast enjoyed a relatively brief appearance by Dave Chappelle on an episode with Donnell Rawlings. And, to the joy of Rogan and Chappelle’s fans, the two set a tentative date for a full show together.

Rogan’s audience is gigantic and, as such, the names on his guest list frequently are as well. But, despite murmings of interest, Chappelle has long eluded one of the podcaster’s extensive interviews. That may soon change, as the iconic comedian confirmed that this new JRE setup in Austin suits his fancies and merits a full appearance.

A little over two hours into Rogan’s episode, No. 1,567, with Rawlings, headsets plopped off, seats got shifted, and both host and guest stood up to make way for a surprise appearance by Chappelle. Rawlings was glad to reunite with his friend from the Chappelle Show and Rogan seemed excited to finally get the comedian on the mic.

All it took was a new bunker studio in Austin, a lit joint, and a cup of coffee before the three were back to talking topics and, without much prying, Chappelle offered to come back on the show for a full episode. The tentative date for that episode? Soon after the presidential inauguration.

For mobile users, the segment begins at 2:30:20.

While spending about an hour chatting would sound like a full podcast to most people, that’s far from what Rogan’s fans have come to expect from his show. So, while Chappelle’s stint on the episode was substantial, he was acutely aware that a more thorough appearance was deserved.

After dapping up Rogan and Rawlings, Chappelle took his seat, got situated with some grass and caffeine, and eventually began discussing how much he enjoys Austin, Texas, along with the new studio.

From the ring to the studio, Rogan’s repertoire of interesting interviewees is boundless.

“I like this setup a lot, man. It feels homey. You actually just tricked me into doing a podcast. I’m going to come and do it for real, for real. As a matter of fact, I should come after the inauguration.” 

Rogan, who has mentioned wanting Chappelle on the show numerous times, including in December 2019, was fully on board with the scheduling opportunity: “Let’s do it. That sounds great.”
