Popular TikTok creator Josh Richards went live on Instagram with fellow internet star Griffin Johnson on April 27 when the former suddenly pulled down his pants, flashing his entire audience in real time.

The eighteen-year-old TikTokker appeared to follow the format of a popular video trend, where a user will drop their phone and fly into view to sit on the camera — usually with their derriere exposed.

However, Richard ultimately ended up showing much more than his backside, which caused such a stir that his name began trending on Twitter.

Richards spoke out regarding the incident in a series of Tweets shortly thereafter, writing, “Stop, it’s over,” and, “Yo, kinda legendary tho.”

Considering the relatively young age of his online audience, the TikTok star received ample backlash for showing his richard to the world, with many criticizing him over the matter via social media.

His joking tone soon changed in wake of the criticism, with the star publishing a lengthy apology via Twitter the next morning.

“I want to apologize about what happened yesterday during the live,” he wrote. “I have a responsibility because of followers I’ve been blessed with. Last night, I took advantage of that. I’m going to try to think harder before I act.”

The star went on to clarify that it was “never his intention” to “leak what got shown,” and claimed that he “made a promise” to “change who I am,” going on to explain that he will “think about what I’ve done and learn from it.”

Thus far, it seems that Richard’s apology has been met with mixed reactions, with some critics still upset that he’d shown such sensitive material to an underage audience.

“I love you alright, but dude wtf?” one user replied. “You have a young audience, some of us know how to deal with what we saw but those young people DON’T.”

“How tf do u pull your pants down on accident?” another challenged.

In spite of the criticism, some fans are expressing sympathy for Richards in wake of a controversial clip that has since gone viral across the net in a way he did not intend.

The TikTokker has not been suspended by Instagram at the time of writing.

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.
