Addison Rae might be one of TikTok’s most popular content creators, but internet fame isn’t always sunshine and roses, as the social media celeb revealed in a series of soul-baring Tweets.

Addison Rae is one of the internet’s fastest-rising stars, boasting over 35 million followers on TikTok due to her viral dance videos and sunny disposition.

Although she’s hailed as one of the platform’s most positive and upbeat personalities, Rae revealed that all is not well in the land of the TikTok famous, admitting that she’s received a slew of negative comments about her body across social media as of late.

TikTok star Addison Rae revealed the “hurtful” body shaming comments she’s received online – but she’s not letting the hate get her down.

In a series of Tweets, Rae opened up about these comments, explaining that although they make her feel “insecure,” she’s dedicated to improving her health for herself.

“I’ve seen 5-10 Tweets & TikToks today talking negatively about my body and weight,” she wrote. “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!”

Despite her positive outlook on the matter, she revealed that the TikTok trolls certainly take a toll on her self-esteem — but she’s using the issue as a means to speak out on body shaming and encouraged her viewers to practice self-love in spite of mean comments.

“It definitely hurts to see people on my fyp calling me ‘a whale’ and saying ‘she’s fat now,’ and I just want to encourage everyone who hears these things about themselves to love yourself!” she continued. “If you are healthy and happy, do NOT listen to these hurtful comments. You are perfect.”

Rae isn’t the only top TikTokker who has dealt with such comments, either; Dixie D’Amelio likewise spoke out on the issue just a month prior, explaining the importance of self-love in the face of mass criticism from online randoms, no matter one’s follower count.

Thus far, Rae’s comments have been met with widespread positivity from fans, who resonate with her message about self-acceptance in an environment where everyone is open to extreme criticism from anyone.

Popular content creator Hasan ‘HasanAbi’ Piker hilariously trolled fellow Twitch star Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek’s new look – comparing it to one of Sacha Baron Cohen’s styles in the new Borat sequel.

Big-name Twitch streamers are always sparking fun feuds between each other for fans to get invested in, as has been seen with the likes of Dr Disrespect, shroud, and more in the past.

Since shroud made his return to Twitch, it has not taken long for some of his fellow streamers to troll him after he debuted a new goatee on stream, instead of his regular clean-shaven look.

HasanAbi was the latest to poke fun at shroud’s choice of facial hair during his October 23 broadcast, comparing it to the new Borat movie.

Borat switches up his usual style for some scenes in the second movie.

Hasan, who’s risen to popularity on Twitch as both a gamer and political commentator was hosting a Twitch watch party for ‘Borat Subsequent Moviefilm’ on Amazon Prime. When a particular scene came up, he was quick to point out similarities between shroud and the main character.

While Borat is usually seen with a long mustache, there is a scene in the movie that sees him rocking a goatee and a pair of glasses, causing Hasan to pull up an image of shroud alongside.

“I have to show- oh my god guys, look at this,” he said, before trolling with a side-by-side image of Borat next to shroud.

Hasan could not help bursting into laughter – the match between the former CSGO pro and Cohen’s latest character is uncanny.

Dr Disrespect previously laid into shroud for his new facial hair, and the jokes are not letting up.

Shroud hasn’t clapped back yet, instead just letting his fellow streamers have their fun – while he rides high on his successful move back to Twitch, following the collapse of Mixer.
