Where is Addison Rae? Fans concerned over TikToker’s hiatus

Addison Rae is one of TikTok’s biggest stars, boasting over 49 million followers on the viral video app — but the influencer has sparked concern throughout her fanbase after disappearing from social media.

Addison Rae may be a popular online entertainer due to her catchy dances and lipsyncing videos, but the TikToker is no stranger to controversy, having come under fire in past weeks over purported racist behavior.

The star caught flak on the net after an older Instagram live stream went viral, which showed the star seeming to whisper to fellow TikToker Kio Cyr to “say the n word” — although Cyr himself argued that she’d asked him if he’d said the word in a reply to the scandal.

That’s not all; fans also took issue with Rae dancing to a song that discussed eating disorders for a sponsored post, as well as allegedly linking to a video that called the Black Lives Matter movement a “cult.”

TikToker Kio Cyr argued that Rae had merely asked him if he’d said a racial slur, rather than asking him to say it, as many first suspected.

All this follows the outrage that occurred in early June, after older comments surfaced that appeared to throw shade at Charli D’Amelio, which Rae had liked before they’d become friends.

In wake of the near-constant drama surrounding her from the past few weeks, it seems that Rae has taken an unannounced hiatus from social media — and her silence is drawing concern from her fans.

“I really miss Addison on social media,” one fan Tweeted. “Where is she? What happened?”

While some are worried for her safety, still others are accusing her of avoiding the situation altogether, and are asking her to address the allegations against her.

“Where is miss Addison Rae?” a critic challenged. “Girl, we ain’t forget.”

“Sooo is Addison Rae just like not gonna address her past Tweet where she linked to a video of a woman saying BLM was a cult and all of that?” another questioned.

Despite these criticisms, worry continues to spread across the TikTok fanbase after Rae’s mother, Sherry Nicole, tweeted out a broken heart emoji, causing some to fear that the negative online attention has driven Rae away from content creation.

With Addison having yet to address the matter via social media, all fans can do is watch and wait for her eventual return.

David Dobrik spooked after drone leaves “creepy” note at his home

Yet again, something bizarre has been dropped off at YouTuber David Dobrik’s house, this time a bag of Chipotle along with a slightly unnerving note flown into his backyard via drone.

David Dobrik has accumulated an enormous fan base on YouTube both as part of the Vlog Squad and as an independent creator. With 18.5 million subscribers, and 23.5 million followers on TikTok, he’s certainly not short of people who love his content and personality.

However, being an online personality of such a large scale comes with its lack of privacy, and that exposure to the world in turn has some bizarre side effects, as David has experienced before.

Earlier in October, the content creator was stunned to find that someone had left an actual kitten on his doorstep in a duffel bag. CCTV footage captured a mysterious stranger placing the bag at his door, but their identity could not be determined.

Clearly that incident has inspired others to try their luck at delivering something to his house without direct consent.

Mysterious drone arrives for David Dobrik

In a video uploaded to his TikTok account, David showed a small drone placing a paper bag of Chipotle in his backyard. “Bro, this is so scary. Someone f**king flew Chipotle on a drone into my backyard, I’m not f**king kidding. What if it’s a f**king bomb, what do I do?”

Also attached to the machine was a little green bag, which when opened revealed some other items along with a small orange handwritten note.

The note stated “you probably do not know who we are. But soon, the name Project better will be much more familiar. Thank you for being awesome, see you soon.”

The letter was definitely a little bit strange.

The mysterious group went on to say that “if you want to film it we’ll be at the nearest Chipotle on riverside with one picture on it. PS: the sauce is half-full because it was too heavy. Enjoy.”

While the incident appears to be relatively well-intentioned, it clearly freaked David and his friends out. The mysterious note referring to a group that will soon be “familiar” to him is certainly eerie, as is the ease at which it was able to access his yard.

It’s not yet clear whether David will really end up meeting the senders of the drone, or even if he ate the food it brought, but people certainly found it interesting as the video now has over 600,000 likes and 2.6 million views.
