TikTok star and model Charly Jordan has come under fire after eagle-eyed critics claimed she lip-synced song lyrics that included a racial slur during a recent video — but Jordan is adamant that she did not mouth the offensive word.

Charly Jordan is a hugely popular influencer across multiple platforms, boasting over 4.8 million followers on TikTok, 4 million on Instagram and a whopping 238,000 subscribers on her YouTube channel.

Despite her relatively positive content — which normally focuses on her day-to-day lifestyle, fitness routines and photoshoots — it seems that Jordan has landed herself in hot water after uploading a TikTok that went viral for all the wrong reasons.

The video, which was uploaded on January 13, featured Jordan and fellow influencer ‘sjbleau’ dancing to the newly released song “Best Friend” by Saweetie and Doja Cat. (Side note — it’s a bop.)

It’s not their dance moves that critics are taking issue with, though; instead, many viewers are accusing Jordan of lip-syncing a racial slur that pops up during the song.

“She said the n word,” one commenter claimed. “She mouthed it.”

“Looked like she said it to me…” another chimed in.

Charly, however, has vehemently denied mouthing the word, as told by her replies in the comments of her TikTok.

“For everyone commenting, I was very aware of the lyrics ahead of time and and didn’t say it, but the way I’m lip-syncing, it looks like it in the video,” she wrote.

“I’m sorry to anyone who is confused, but just to clarify, before making this dance I was aware of it and would never say it,” she added.

Charly Jordan denies mouthing a racial slur during a TikTok video.

Despite her explanation, critics still aren’t convinced that she didn’t say the offensive term in question, with many accusing her of simply backtracking after being caught red-handed.

“So you knew the lyrics, lip-synced it, rewatched it, and decided to post this vid,” one user replied.

“Girl, this isn’t your word to say,” another commented.

It doesn’t look like Charly is taking the video down in spite of the criticism, which continues to mount in wake of its publication a day ago.

TikTok’s hottest couple, Addison Rae and Bryce Hall, have sparked rumors that they might be getting engaged after Addison flexed a flashy ring on Instagram.

Bryce and Addison — affectionately referred to as ‘Braddison’ by shippers — are two of TikTok’s most popular content creators, who were long rumored to be secretly dating despite their repeated denial to the contrary.

However, on November 30, the two finally confirmed that they are officially dating, and have been together for nearly two months (although they did break up earlier this year after just three days together).

Since their surprise announcement, they haven’t held back with their lovey-dovey social media posts about each other, complete with cuddly, PDA-filled TikToks. And of course, while both creators are still so young, fans of the couple are eager for more content – especially if they decide to tie the knot in the future.

On Thursday, January 14, Addison was spotted by paparazzi leaving XIV Karats LTD jewelry store in Beverly Hills – and  later on, posted a picture of a new sparkly ring on her ring finger to her Instagram story, leaving fans in a frenzy over what it might mean.

Typically, an engagement ring is worn on the ring finger of the left hand, and with the way the picture was taken, it does look like it’s on her left hand.

However, while it has prompted speculation that the pair are or could potentially be getting engaged, discussion on drama Instagram account TikTokroom heavily suggests that the pair are getting each other promise rings, instead.

This is something that several famous TikTok couples have done to show their commitment to each other, including Cynthia Parker and Quinton Griggs, as well as Alex Warren and Kouvr Annon, so it wouldn’t be so surprising if this is the case.

Either way, Bryce and Addison are clearly about as lovey-dovey as they could possibly be at this point, and engagement ring or not, the pair look like they’re in it for the long-haul.
