Daniella Perkins, famous actress and YouTube star, has called on TikTok sensation Addison Rae to speak out over some old clips that have resurfaced on social media. 

There has been heightened tension in recent months around social injustice, and big stars across social media have been using their platform to speak out, including Addison Rae. But, some of world’s most popular TikTok stars have also been accused of racism, leading to heightened scrutiny of influencers.

While Addison Rae has been vocal about the BLM movement, Daniella Perkins recently encouraged the TikTok star to speak out and distance herself from some past behavior, which she believes to be problematic.

Perkins discussed the issue in a July 3 YouTube video.

In a YouTube video based around “becoming” Addison Rae, Perkins explains that she admired Rae’s support for the Black Lives Matter protests. However, recent clips that have surfaced have made Perkins question her support for the TikTok star.

“Long story short, things have been resurfacing from Addison’s past,” Perkins said. She showed a clip from an old Addison Rae video, in which Rae allegedly encouraged another TikTokker to say a racial slur.

“I’m kind of hurt by all this stuff,” Perkins said. “Just listen, okay. I just feel like you’re not 14, you can’t be like ‘I didn’t know the n word was bad’… because you were 19, you know right from wrong. There were so many comments for you to read, I just don’t understand why she chose to read the one comment that mentioned the n word.”

Perkins also cites a tweet from roughly a year ago, in which Addison Rae linked an ‘all lives matter’ video.

“Maybe she’s changed the way she sees things,” Perkins continued, “but like, we don’t know because Addison hasn’t said anything… the worst part about it is that she hasn’t said anything.”

She said that Rae’s recent behavior clashes with the things from her past, so she wants Rae to speak up to clarify the matters. Perkins stated that Rae “staying silent” on these matters may “confuse” her fans.

Perkins finished: “Addison, please, just say something about everything that’s going on… At the end of the day, your supporters need to know that you support them. It hurt me, I can only imagine how much it can hurt your fans. Just say something, own up to your mistakes.”

As of the publication of this article, Rae has not commented publicly on the clips and tweets that have resurfaced.


Mr Beast struggles through ridiculous 24-hour ice house challenge

Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson is no stranger to over the top challenges but his latest video was one of the most difficult he’s ever filmed, as he struggled to endure 24 hours in a house made completely of ice.

While Mr Beast loves to giveaway crazy prizes to competitors, friends, and even just strangers on the street, he also loves a good challenge. From 24 hours in a prison to surviving on a deserted island, the popular YouTuber has done just about everything.

Looking to push the boundaries even further, his latest task was to endure the freezing cold for a full day. It wasn’t just a cold room with the air conditioning cranked, it was an entire house made of ice. Brick by brick the structure fully was completely encased in ice to keep Mr Beast as cold as possible.

Everything from the chairs to the toilet was also frozen solid. Mere hours into the attempt it had quickly become “one of the harder challenges [he’s] ever done.”

A few hours into the challenge and Mr Beast had to start getting regular checks to ensure he wasn’t in proper danger.

So what was the motive to remain in the ice house? If Mr Beast survived all 24 hours, his closest friends would have to cover themselves “in syrup and feathers” in public. On the other hand, if he left early, the same punishment would be applied.

After a few hours of pacing back and forth to keep his body active, he bargained for a pair of gloves. A nearby crew member handed them over and agreed to a $10,000 deal to be Mr Beast’s “spy” throughout the challenge.

This was certainly one of the more unique challenges on the channel as the gimmick never let up. Mr Beast was even forced to eat a stack of pancakes with a fork made entirely of ice. At the 12 hour mark, he conceded that “it was brutal.”

“Literally the coldest I’ve ever been in my entire life,” he said after the fact. “I was miserable.” Despite the odds being stacked against him and his friends trying to make the challenge even harder, he pushed through to the very end.

Days after revealing his most expensive video ever, it turns out this rather simple challenge was quite costly as well. 

“This video cost me around $300,000 to make. For the price that it cost me to build an ice house, I could have bought a real house.”
