TIkTok star Addison Rae has come under fire for lipsyncing a “lesbian anthem” in one of her latest posts, with numerous fans calling her out for appropriating LGBT culture.

Addison Rae has been put under the microscope over the last few weeks. First, she vanish off social media entirely, which left fans concerned for her safety.

The star, who has 50 million followers on TikTok alone, returned after a few days break. She apologized for promoting ‘All Lives Matter’ four years ago, as well as sharing a video that called the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement a “cult.”

However, she hasn’t been able to escape scrutiny for long since returning. Among a slew of rumors about a possible pregnancy, as well as speculation on her new project, she’s come under fire for using a specific song on TikTok.

In a July 14 video posted on her second account, ‘just_addison_xd’, Rae lipsynced to an unreleased song by American rapper ‘PPCOCAINE’, reportedly titled “For That Cash.”

The song has been widely used on TikTok since popping up a week ago. However, some people have questioned her using the song, saying she’s ‘appropriating’ LGBT culture by doing so.

“We can’t have one thing,” one user commented on the video. Others questioned whether Addison knew the meaning of the song, which talks about lesbian relationships.

Some fans even treated this as a “coming out” party for Rae, potentially suggesting that Rae using the song was a sign of her coming to terms with her sexuality.

It’s not the only upload Rae has been criticized for in recent times. Late in June, she was called out for a “racist” Instagram live stream where Rae reportedly whispered to Kio Cyr, asking him to “say the n-word.”

The clip has reached 6.6 million views at the time of publishing. Rae is yet to comment on the backlash.

While they have many adoring fans, they haven’t been exempt from drama, such as earlier in July when they were forced to address a homophobic slur used when explaining the bullying they received in high school. In the same month, Ethan released a video detailing how comments online about his acne had severely affected his well-being in the past year.

Last week Ethan revealed his girlfriend to the world on YouTube with his brother Grayson. After spending months apart Kristine was finally able to catch a flight out to Los Angeles from Australia where she lives.

On Monday, Ethan stunned his fans by posting a series of close, romantic pictures to his Instagram alongside an emotional message, which read: “To say the least, this has been a chaotic, stressful, weird, confusing, uneasy year. But because it was spent with the smartest – most caring -best sense of humor having – so pretty I get stunned every time I look at – perfect woman in the world, it has been the best year of my life.”

He explained that last December was “one of the most emotionally exhausting months of my life” and attributed his success and ability to get through to her support.

Part 1/3. To say the least, this has been a chaotic, stressful, weird, confusing, uneasy year. But because it was spent with the smartest – most caring -best sense of humor having – so pretty I get stunned every time I look at – perfect woman in the world, it has been the best year of my life. Our trip to Hawaii on this day last year, will be a memory I cherish for the rest of my life. I will be forever grateful for how caring you were during one of the most emotionally exhausting months of my life while living in Australia together last December. I wouldn’t have been able to create my most proud project last January without your constant support. When we were forced to quarantine together and be attached at the hip for an additional 5 months longer than we planned… I wasn’t even mad😌 When you had to go back to Australia without knowing when we’d be able to see each other again it was NOT CHILL. Although we unintentionally spent 4 months on opposite sides of the globe with a 17 hour time difference… I still felt closer than ever to you. The hours on FaceTime everyday and random gift care packages were fun. You completely took over my camera roll because I couldn’t help but to screenshot your face every couple seconds. Getting a little part of you tattooed on my arm also contributed to you feeling closer to me I guess 😝 Thank you for making me happy everyday. Thank you for giving me something to always look forward to. Thank you for making me a better version of myself. I love you Photos by: @jordenkeith

It seems as though Ethan will have more to say in the next few days after he labeled the caption only part 1 of 3. For now, the YouTuber has confirmed to the world that not only is he in a far better place than he was last year, but that he is well and truly taken.
