After jokingly threatening to release her daughter’s WAP video if she wasn’t nice to her, Addison Rae’s mom has now taken on the challenge of recreating the provocative dance herself and the internet is loving it. Even Cardi B herself reacted.

Ever since choreographer Brian Esperon created the captivating WAP dance, TikTok users across the globe have been trying their very best to learn it. Brian even released a tutorial video on YouTube that now has over a million views.

TikTok sensation Charli D’Amelio was told she wasn’t allowed to upload her WAP draft by her mom because it was “too inappropriate.” But 19-year-old Addison Rae bypassed her own mom’s threats of releasing the draft by just posting it of her own accord.

But Sheri wasn’t quite finished with the WAP trend, as on August 22 she uploaded her own version of the dance to her personal account, captioned “I warned you Addison, hope this teaches you to be nice to your mama.”

The video now has almost 6 million likes, and plenty of people have had something to say in the 200,000 comments.

Of course, Addison herself acknowledged her mom’s attempt, in a comment that’s been liked over 700,000 times. “Not the leopard print” she said in response to Sherri’s interesting choice of fashion.

Influencer Zoe Laverne caught onto the ongoing joke feud between Addison and her mom, saying “Addison what did you do?” and Kouvr Annon saying “YESSSSSSSSS” “WITH THE HEELS TOO!!”

It seems like there wasn’t a TikTokker who didn’t have something to say, with viral Willy Wonka impersonator (@willywonkatiktok) joining in on the conversation to say “first Addison took my number one spot on the sound, and now Sheri is gonna come snatch number two?! Well played.”

Cardi B herself was impressed, reacting to a repost of the video on Twitter with the caption “Why Addison re mom eat her up”, with “Period.”

Despite Addison’s mixed reaction to her mother’s viral dancing, the rest of the app, and social media at large, can’t get enough, so who knows what trend she’ll decide to partake in next.


TSM Hamlinz finally breaks Twitter silence after four-months away

Hamlinz has been missing in action for quite some time, but the beloved Fortnite streamer has finally broken his silence on Twitter on Oct. 25, and let the world know he is back and feeling good.

Darryle ‘Hamlinz’ Hamlin was once a pillar in the streaming world. He shot to fame while streaming Fortnite during its peak, and his popularity rose even more after he joined Team Solo Mid.

However, the beloved streamer has been on the down-low for several months now; in fact, he has been silent on social media for most of the year. 

Hamlinz tweeted every now and then between January and March, and even streamed a couple of times. But he was far less active than he used to be, and hadn’t posted at all since July.

Many speculated he might have been on another hiatus. The first one happened when he needed some time off to deal with a nasty cyst. The second one happened not long after when he needed some time to deal with personal issues.

Hamlinz was once one of the most popular streamers alongside Shroud and Ninja.

Thankfully, he bounced back on both those occasions, and it seems like he’s bounced back once again. The full extent of what happened this time around remains unclear. However, the most important thing is that Hamlinz has finally broken his silence on social media.

“Feeling like my old self again,” he wrote. It’s a little more than one hour old, but the tweet has already amassed 50,000 likes, 6,5000 retweets, and 6,000 comments.

The hype is real, and for a good reason. Hamlinz is one of the most entertaining, likable, and talented streamers in the world. Plus, it’s always nice to see people recover from whatever issues they’re facing and get back on their own two feet.

The comments are filled with people happy to see him back. “Finally something good in 2020,” wrote one fan. “Hamlinz is BACK BABY,” wrote another.

Sadly, Hamlinz has remained tight-lipped on whether he will stream again anytime soon. However, considering he is feeling like his old self again, it could mean that a stream might not be too far away.

Either way, there’s no doubt that it will be a momentous occasion. If the excitement in the comments is anything to go by, the floodgates will open and his fans, followers, and viewers will come pouring in.

Hamlinz has more than five million followers across Twitch, Twitter, and Youtube. It seems all the time off hasn’t dampened his popularity in the slightest.
