Addison Rae responded to a diss track about her from Fortnite pro Nate Hill, publicly denouncing the FaZe Clan member’s video as “hurtful” and “fueling negativity.”

While the video was made to address the “people infesting [his] timeline with bad Addison Rae tweet replies,” the content of the clip was largely focused on the 19-year-old’s physical appearance and nature of her content.

The video instantly gained traction around the internet among fans, streamers and influencers alike. Hill, as well as a portion of his friends and fans, enjoyed the track. Others, including Rae, did not.

“This makes me really sad,” Rae said of the track. “I can’t change how people interact with me or my tweets… but I’m thankful they do… I struggle with body image and insecurities in general and this can be so hurtful.”

Rae said that the content of the track “can tear someone’s self-esteem up if they’re already having negative thoughts in their own head.”

Hill’s “researched” track included lyrics such as “there’s better girls than Addison Rae” and “I see hotter girls every day.”

Many hit out at Hill for the since-deleted video’s content since it was out of character for the streamer.

“This dude has ‘positivity’ in his title every stream yet went out of his way to make an entire ass song tearing down someone who he’s never met or done anything wrong,” Twitter user ‘THump’ said. “Imagine being that weird.”

Also replying to the tweet was fellow FaZe member ‘Ewok,’ saying that the video was “Unnecessary. But it’s obviously impression farming.”

Rae has amassed a large following on TikTok.

The term refers to an online strategy that’s sole purpose is to be consumed by as many people as possible.

Hill later took down the video, saying the video was just a joke and that he wasn’t trying to hurt anybody.

Rae decried the clip: “I say these things because [Hill] has a large platform and is choosing to use it to spread and fuel negativity.”

It should be said that these kind of diss tracks are frequent and menial in the streaming space, but the content of the song didn’t conjure the reaction Hill was hoping for.

Wendy Williams explains why she “doesn’t feel sorry” for Charli D’Amelio

Popular U.S. TV host Wendy Williams has hit out at TikTok star Charli D’Amelio, after the 16-year-old went on Instagram Live in tears over backlash she had received in her race to 100 million followers.

After an offhand joke about reaching 100 million followers on TikTok, fans deemed Charli “ungrateful” for her success so far and started unfollowing her in droves, losing over 500,000 before her numbers started looking up again and she finally reached the monumental number.

While there was a lot of discussion online about the death threats Charli had received and her treatment by fans and critics alike, the resounding message was that she was being treated unfairly.

Making her opinion on the matter known, however, was American TV host Wendy Williams of The Wendy Williams Show.

Charli has reached 100 million followers on TikTok, but not without some controversy in the run-up to the big moment.

Discussing the hottest topics of the weekend just gone, Wendy was shown several of Charli’s videos, with the situation broken down and explained to her — and she wasn’t impressed.

After finding out what had gone down, and watching the video of a tearful Charli asking for people to stop with the abuse, Wendy made her stance very clear.

“I don’t see any tears,” Williams exclaimed. “Because the drama, these TikTokers, these children these days, they live for the drama.”

The host added she “doesn’t feel sorry” for D’Amelio, especially since she’s probably already gotten the followers back she lost “and then some.”

Topic starts at 25:45.

Wendy did offer a little more advice though when it was suggested that Charli should be a little more grateful.

“No!” she said, before advising Charli to “stay ungrateful and collect those checks!”

So, while Wendy doesn’t seem to be buying the drama, she clearly has some level of respect for Charli’s hustle and ability to “collect those checks” — but suggests the backlash comes hand-in-hand with the success.

The recent controversy surrounding her has clearly hit the younger D’Amelio sister hard, but maybe her being “ungrateful” is, as Williams suggested, just what the internet wanted all along.
