Where did Addison Rae go to college?

Before moving to Los Angeles to pursue her TikTok career, the dancer briefly attended Louisiana State University (LSU) where she studied sports broadcasting in the fall but then dropped out when her followers started blowing up on TikTok. wikipedia.orgAddison Rae

In a YouTube video posted to the NELK boys’ channel, Rae can be seen talking to the former President saying “hi” and that it’s “so nice to meet [him].”

Addison Rae was attending the UFC fight between McGregor and Poirier, and was seated alongside the NELK Boys in some of the best seats in the house.

As they were seated in such a desirable spot, there were countless big names and recognizable faces around them. NELK Boys uploaded the clip with the title “Donald Trump Is Smashing Addison Rae!”

After Rae talks with Trump, several of the NELK boys make crude comments about Rae’s reason for approaching him.

Addison Rae has previously gotten into hot water on the subject of Trump.

In September 2020, a viral TikTok appeared to show Rae had registered as a Republican three times in 2014, 2016 and 2018.

The video, which racked up more than a million views, prompted a response from Rae.

In a TikTok comment at the time, Rae said: “This isn’t real hahahaha. First I’m from Louisiana, second I’m not even registered to vote and never have been I’m actually doing it for the first time with someone important and I’m excited to do so. This is fake.”

Twitter users also believed they saw a Trump 2020 flag in a photo Rae posted. However, Rae was quick to disprove this pointing it was an Old Navy souvenir.

This also wasn’t Rae’s only controversy at the UFC. The TikTok star came under fire for reporting at the event despite only studying broadcast journalism for three months. Rae later responded to the criticism.

Similar to when rumors first circulated that Rae might support Trump, some people were disappointed that Rae was so friendly to the former President.

Others saw the irony that Rae was so happy to greet Trump when he had tried to ban TikTok in the US while President.

Rae was at one point the highest-paid TikToker.

Does Addison not remember that at one point he tried to abolish tiktok? Smh😩

Other fans were surprised too that Rae could just approach Trump at the event and tap him on the shoulder.

As a former President, he has Secret Service protection.

That’s what I said! The man doesn’t have secret service or what???

Addison Rae has not yet commented on the situation on her social media channels.

growing up our parents always said “don’t believe anything you see on the internet” yet everyone somehow trusts everything they read on here...

Video Shows Addison Rae Greeting Donald Trump at UFC 246 and People Are Sounding Off

Complex 14 July, 2021 - 01:36am

In a video posted by popular YouTube vloggers the Nelk boys, Trump can be seen entering the arena and taking a seat directly in front of the internet personalities. To their left is Rae, who toward the end of their video, erroneously entitled “Donald Trump Is Smashing Addison Rae,” can be seen getting out of her seat and tapping the former president on the shoulder. 

“Hi,” she says. “I’m Addison. Nice to meet you, I have to say ‘hi.’”

While it’s unclear what Trump says in response, or how anyone could approach a former president and tap them on the shoulder without much hassle from the Secret Service, Trump seemed unbothered by the internet celebrity. The Nelk boys—who met Trump themselves and seemingly got emotional right after—also made inappropriate comments about the nature of Addison’s encounter with Trump. 

After the encounter was posted on Tuesday morning, people questioned why Rae would approach a president who she previously went out of her way to deny supporting. The video comes months after Rae was called out on TikTok for allegedly being a registered republican—which she denied—and after she clarified that a suspected Trump flag in her bedroom was actually something entirely different.

Either way, Rae caught the expected backlash for her chumminess with the former president. Check out some notable reactions below.

Addison Rae receives backlash for excitedly greeting Donald Trump at UFC event

PopBuzz 14 July, 2021 - 01:36am

Internet

Is Addison Rae a Donald Trump supporter? Here's what happened at the UFC event…

Addison Rae is being accused of supporting former US President Donald Trump after a YouTube video showed the TikTok star excitedly greeting him at a recent UFC event.

Addison attended the UFC 264: Dustin Poirier vs. Conor McGregor event this weekend after allegedly landing a gig as a UFC correspondent. She then reportedly got fired after she was heavily criticised for stealing a job from a professional journalist (although, reports suggest she wasn't an official correspondent anyway).

Now there's a video of Addison walking up to Donald Trump and tapping him on the shoulder. When he turns around, Addison introduces herself to him. "I am Addison. I have to say hi. Hello. So nice to meet you," she says. Her friends behind her then make comments about the interaction like, "Addison Rae exposed", "She knows what she's doing" and "Trump's gonna fuck her, easy." The video – titled 'Donald Trump Is Smashing Addison Rae!' – was shared on the NELK YouTube channel.

As you can imagine, Addison's fans were disappointed to see her fan-girling over the disgraced former President, who is known for his offensive views. "Oopsies Addison… your Republican is showing," one user tweeted. Another added: "She ain't even have to go up to him too. Everybody else was seated but she had to fangirl. Went up to him grinning from ear to ear talkin bout it’s nice to meet you!"

Oopsies Addison… your Republican is showing https://t.co/ctXsL7fKr8

no one should be surprised at this because she literally said blm was a cult back in 2018 https://t.co/YYViEhsII9

She aint even have to go up to him too. Everybody else was seated but she had to fangirl. Went up to him grinning from ear to ear talkin bout “it’s nice to meet you!” 😭 https://t.co/9ypdYD35mc

Yeah Addison Rae is getting cancelled 😭😭 why the Nelk boys gotta expose her for meeting Trump 😭😭

you actually *don’t* have to say hi https://t.co/NomVObFtCQ

So Addison Rae just “HAD” to say hi to trump? But she’s not a supporter ok…

Addison hasn't addressed the video in question just yet but fans have long suspected Addison is a Republican after a viral TikTok from September 2020 claimed she had consistently voted for the Republican Party in 2014, 2016 and 2018. Addison debunked the rumours, though, insisting that she had never registered to vote. She also would have been too young to vote in 2014 and 2016. The TikToker who posted the video later apologised.

Last year, Addison also denied rumours that she had a Trump 2020 flag in her room, after she shared an image of her messy bedroom on social media and users thought they saw a Trump flag on the floor. Addison then said that it was actually an Old Navy beach towel, sharing a photo of it as proof.

Wait, Is TikTok Star Addison Rae A Donald Trump Fangirl?!

PerezHilton.com 14 July, 2021 - 01:36am

Say it ain’t so, Addison Rae!

One of TikTok‘s most popular — and sometimes most controversial — young stars is at it again, just days after being fired from her UFC sideline reporter gig after backlash that she was “stealing jobs” from seasoned reporters on the scene.

This time around, the Louisiana native’s actions are centered on one man: Donald Trump.

The scandal kicked off over the weekend, when both Rae and Trump attended the Conor McGregor fight against Dustin Poirier. In a video posted by NELK on both their Twitter account and their YouTube channel, the 20-year-old starlet can be seen walking over to Trump where he’s seated near the octagon and introducing herself.

Saying “hi,” and, “it’s so nice to meet you,” Addison clearly gets Trump’s attention ringside, as you can see in the video (below):

ABSOLUTELY UNEXPECTED: Addison Rae gets out of her seat in the middle of the UFC to say hi former president Donald Trump. Addison says to Trump, “I have to say hi.” Addison previously denied being a Trump supporter and registered Republican, though her voter registration leaked. pic.twitter.com/ZuTzJjqaX9

— Def Noodles (@defnoodles) July 13, 2021

Now, this is super controversial because Addison has previously been accused of supporting Trump before. Last September, a TikTok post went viral which appeared to show Rae had been registered as a Republican three times before: in 2014, in 2016, and in 2018.

Considering the legal voting age in America is 18, though, and Addison is from Louisiana — all three registrations were supposedly in California, and two well before her 18th birthday — it became pretty clear pretty early on that Trump’s beloved “fake news” might have come into play with that one.

Nevertheless, a month before that (last August) she also publicly denied that she’d had a Trump flag hanging in her bedroom. The subject just keeps coming up!!

Regardless of their veracity, those claims went viral then, and now this new video has done it again. And people have a LOT to say! Here are just a few of the reactions to Addison’s advance towards The Donald during the UFC match:

“How you gonna deny this now lol”

“its worse that she’s giddy asf like girl why are you so excited”

“If she saw hitler she’d have the same reaction”

“let’s see what her fans gotta say now…”

“sweetie no u don’t have to say hi sit ur ass down”

“Ew who tf wants to meet that guy”

“If she supports trump she should just outright say it. Yeah it’s kinda cringe but it’s even worse her pretending not to like him when she obviously does lmao”

Some people didn’t care for all the criticism coming her way, though:

“I’m not a fan of the guy but at the end of the day it would still be cool to meet him because he is a former president”

“I’m not saying she is or isn’t a Trump supporter. But I find it funny how saying hello to a former president makes people assume you voted for them.”

“Someone please help me understand what’s wrong with her saying hi?”

“What’s wrong with her saying hi? What’s even wrong with her supporting him? What happened to democracy ? I thought everyone can do whatever they want? I think people would cancel anyone who doesn’t agree with them nowadays.”

What do U make of this controversy, Perezcious readers? Do U think Addison is a Trump fan — or did she simply not want to pass up an opportunity to say hello to a former President??

How Addison Rae's career went from casual TikTok dances to appearances on 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians'

Yahoo News 13 July, 2021 - 02:24pm

She began posting on TikTok in 2019 and was an early member of the Hype House.

Since then, she's transformed her influencer status into conventional celebrity.

Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.

Over the last year, Addison Rae burst from the TikTok scene into mainstream Hollywood fame.

Addison Rae, the 20-year-old influencer turned budding mainstream celebrity, is one of TikTok's biggest stars. The third-most-followed person on the app (behind Charli D'Amelio and Khaby Lame, who unseated Rae from the penultimate spot just last week), Rae has parlayed her TikTok fame into that of a conventional celebrity better than most online influencers ever have.

That pivot has led to Rae, whose full name is Addison Rae Easterling, releasing her own music, appearing on "Keeping Up With The Kardashians," and starring in a Netflix remake of "She's All That."

Over the course of her career, however, she's also become a face of conventional TikTok stardom: a creator who rose to prominence by performing dances and lip-sync trends, eventually moving out to Los Angeles and joining an influencer collective (in Rae's case, the Hype House) before turning online clout into brand deals and entertainment contracts.

This is how Rae, who currently has 81.9 million followers, went from posting videos for fun in the summer of 2019, as she previously told Insider, to becoming one of the app's best-known stars.

Rae began posting on TikTok in 2019.

Everyone’s reposting their most popular tik tok sooooo 🤪🤪 ##foryoupage ##foryou ##fyp

While Rae broke through into mainstream stardom in 2020, her TikTok presence dates back to mid-2019, less than a year after TikTok merged with the popular lip-sync app Musical.ly in August 2018. At that time, she posted a mix of dance videos, lip-syncs, trends, and comedy skits, with many of her videos featuring appearances from her mother — a TikTok star in her own right with over 14 million followers — and other family members.

I tried 🤦🏽‍♀️ ##foryoupage ##foryou

Her videos began to take off and she hit the 1 million follower milestone in October 2019, as Insider previously reported.

By late November of that year, she decided to leave Louisiana State University, where she studied broadcast journalism, to pursue content creation full-time.

"I remember that's when it changed for me," Rae told Insider in April 2020. "I knew I wanted to take it more seriously and expand it to other platforms. I uploaded a video to YouTube and got really active on Instagram."

In December 2019, Rae moved to California and joined the Hype House.

Rae told Insider last year that she moved to California in December 2019, with her family eventually buying a house there and splitting their time between the sunshine state and Louisiana.

She was also a member of the Hype House collective, a group of influencers that includes creators like Thomas Petrou, Chase Hudson, and Avani Gregg. Charli and Dixie D'Amelio, some of TikTok's biggest stars still today, were also associated with the group.

By May 2020, Seventeen reported that Rae appeared to be distancing herself from the Hype House when Bryce Hall — Rae's on and off boyfriend — said that she "doesn't really associate" with the collective in what appears to be a since-deleted Instagram video.

Rae signed with talent agency WME in January 2020.

By the time that Rae had moved out to Los Angeles and began associating with the Hype House, she was also attracting attention from brands and eventually talent agency WME, which has also signed TikTok stars like Chase Hudson.

WME agents told Insider in March 2020 that the focus with influencers they had signed was more on brand partnerships and sponsored content than placement in acting roles.

Over the course of 2020, Rae greatly expanded her scope beyond social media: as Insider's Amanda Perelli reported, she launched apparel and merchandise collections with iamkoko.la and Fanjoy. Rae also launched a Spotify-exclusive podcast co-hosted by her mother, Sherri Nicole, that was recently renewed for a second season under the name "That Was Fun?" and originally launched in July 2020.

Last August, Forbes reported that Rae was TikTok's highest-earning star.

And now, Rae's getting an acting gig as well — she's starring in "He's All That," a remake of the 1999 film "She's All That," which premieres on Netflix this August.

And of course, she's also launched her own music career with the release of her single "Obsessed" in March.

She appeared on "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after becoming close friends with Kourtney Kardashian.

Addison Rae formed a relationship with Kourtney Kardashian, 41, after starting to collaborate with Kardashian's son Mason Disick on social media in March 2020. Soon after, Rae and Kardashian began appearing in YouTube videos together, referring to each other as "besties" in a June 2020 TikTok video.

Throughout 2020, Kardashian and Rae continued to publicly post about their friendship on social media, Insider previously reported.

In April, Rae appeared on an episode of E!'s Kardashian-focused reality show "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" so that the rest of the family could question her about her relationship with Kourtney.

Rae was at the center of a dance credit controversy sparked by a segment she performed on "The Tonight Show."

In March, Rae appeared on "The Tonight Show" with Jimmy Fallon to promote her single "Obsessed." While on the show, she also did a segment with Fallon in which she performed a series of dances that are popular on TikTok but had not been choreographed by Rae herself.

The segment generated backlash online, notably because none of the creators who choreographed the dances, many of whom are Black, received on-screen credit during the show itself (they were later credited in the description of the YouTube upload of the clip).

The segment played into an existing issue on TikTok in which Black creators aren't credited, and ultimately don't profit, from the trends — dance or otherwise — that they start. That recurring phenomenon eventually led to what's been dubbed the "Black TikTok strike," in which many Black TikTok creators are deliberately not choreographing dance challenges to Megan Thee Stallion's "Thot S---" as a means of highlighting how TikTok, and white creators, profit off of their cultural contributions.

Amid the backlash, Rae told TMZ that she supports all of the original choreographers of the dances she performed and said that she hopes one day they can collaborate. "The Tonight Show" also later highlighted some of the creators in an April segment.

Rae has been followed by other minor controversies during her career.

In July, Rae posted a tweet in which she appeared to joke about being a UFC correspondent when she attended the preliminary event for UFC 264: Dustin Poirier vs. Conor McGregor.

"I studied broadcast journalism in college for 3 whole months to prepare for this moment," she tweeted along with two photos of her holding a microphone.

Rae jokingly addressed the controversy in a tweet a day later, saying "nvm y'all got me fired."

She was also accused of being a Republican in September 2020 when a viral TikTok video purported to show her voter registration. In a comment on the video, Rae said the claims were false, and that she was not yet registered to vote.

In tweets on July 13, footage surfaced that purportedly showed Rae greeting President Donald Trump during the UFC 264 match on July 10. Uploaded to the NELK YouTube channel in a video titled "Addison Rae Says Hi To Donald Trump," Rae appeared to approach the former president.

"Hi, I'm Addison. Nice to meet you," Rae said to a person that appeared to be President Trump. "I have to say hi. Hello, so nice to meet you."

The footage, which circulated on Twitter on Tuesday, led many on Twitter to hypothesize that Rae was a Trump supporter, BuzzFeed reported.

Rae did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment regarding the footage.

Mel Gibson & Addison Rae Boldly Embrace Trump At UFC 246

HotNewHipHop 13 July, 2021 - 02:05pm

As you'd expect, not everyone was particularly enthusiastic about his presence but there were a few people who were. Mel Gibson was seemingly among those who offered a warm welcome to Trump. Video emerged that appears to show Mel Gibson giving Trump a military-style salute as he walked down the aisle. Interestingly enough, Gibson had previously expressed disapproval for Trump's politics.

Another unexpected figure who approached Trump directly during the event was TikTok star, Addison Rae. She had already faced backlash for serving as a reporter for the event (and bragging about landing the gig after a short tenure in J-School). During the event, she's seen going out of her way to introduce herself to Donald Trump. In a video titled, "Donald Trump Is Smashing Addison Rae" published by YouTube bloggers the Nelk boys, she's seen tapping Trump on the shoulder before a quick exchange. "Hi,” she said. “I’m Addison. Nice to meet you, I have to say ‘hi.'"

Unfortunately, it's unclear how Donald Trump responded to Rae but it should be noted that she previously denied supporting Trump. She found herself at the center of controversy on TikTok after she was accused of being a registered Republican. She also had to clarify that she didn't own a MAGA flag in her room after fans suspected that she did.

The Addison Rae UFC Controversy Is a Big, Dumb Misunderstanding

VICE 13 July, 2021 - 12:56pm

That set off yet another wave of rage tweeting, virtue signaling, and click chasing—and all of it, it turns out, was based on a big, dumb misunderstanding. 

Rae was never hired by the UFC, a source connected to the UFC told VICE. (A separate source with knowledge of the situation also confirmed that she wasn’t on the payroll.) Instead, she attended UFC 264 as a VIP guest, the source close to the UFC said. 

“She was not there in any official capacity, nor did she have a role as a reporter or broadcaster for the weekend,” the source said. “She wasn’t paid.”

Rae’s dad is a big fan of the UFC, according to the source. When the UFC’s social team found that out, they invited her to the event and gave her a pair of free tickets. From there, they enlisted Rae in a series of “social activations,” the source said. Rae worked out at the UFC’s training center with Miesha Tate, an MMA fighter. She did a fake walkout in an empty T-Mobile Arena. She briefly interviewed Poirier for a TikTok uploaded to ESPN’s account, because both of them are from Lafayette, Louisiana. She had a brief on-camera conversation with Laura Sanko, an actual paid UFC correspondent. She watched a few fights in the VIP section, seated next to Travis Barker, Kourtney Kardashian, Justin Bieber, and a handful of other celebrities. Then she went home. The UFC never “fired” Rae, nor have they cut ties with her.

“That was a joke,” the source connected to the UFC said. “They're still going to be churning out the social content that they produced with her in the coming days.”

The UFC is constantly looking for opportunities to get “more eyeballs” on their events, the source said. Partnering with Rae, who has about 82 million followers on TikTok, presented such an opportunity. The UFC gained exposure to Rae’s fans, some of whom might not have followed the UFC before, and in exchange, Rae got exposure to UFC fans, some of whom might not have followed her before. It was guaranteed to be a big win for everyone involved, no matter how it played out. The Twitter kerfuffle over Rae’s nonexistent “job” with the UFC only made it bigger, triggering a flood of articles calling attention to Rae and the UFC—like this one!—that otherwise wouldn’t have been written.

Addison Rae’s resurfaced college video receives backlash as TikToker leverages fans to enter bar

HITC - Football, Gaming, Movies, TV, Music 13 July, 2021 - 12:20am

However, what is also being discussed is the fact that the video is being taken down from the internet. It is no longer available on YouTube, after being deleted in less than 12 hours since it was uploaded, and many have pointed if her team is behind it, ensuring her reputation isn’t hurt. 

TODAY IN CRINGE: Resurfaced video of Addison Rae trying to leverage the 500,000 followers she had at the time to get no-cover card at bar near Louisiana State University during Freshmen year of college. The 7-minute video is currently being scrubbed from the internet by her team. pic.twitter.com/ITXcrXJxVa

Twitter user Def Noodles claimed in a post that the 7-minute video is “being scrubbed from the internet by her team”. However, the part of the video that’s being extensively circulated on TikTok shows Addison trying to convince the security at the bar to let her in after he learns that she’s still a freshman. 

The TikToker then goes on to talk about her huge fan following, saying “literally, I am telling you,when I was in here when it was fully packed they were coming to me with their phones on flash taking pictures of me.”

If the claims are to be believed, Addison tried leveraging the “500,000 followers she had at the time to get no-cover card” at the bar.”

She currently has over 80 million followers on TikTok. 

Born in Lafayette, Addison spent the major part of her life in Louisiana. Before rising to fame through her dance videos on TikTok, she went to college at Louisiana State University. She reportedly studied sports broadcasting in the fall, but eventually dropped out of college to pursue her TikTok career. 

The leaked video also claims the incident occured at a bar near Louisiana State University during her Freshman year of college. 

While the video of Addison’s is from years ago, fans aren’t thrilled to see what she had to say about her followers, especially to benefit in the given situation. Soon after the video started circulating on Twitter, more and more fans expressed their opinion about the newly ensued drama. 

One tweeted, “Sure, drinking in college is, but not using your followers as leverage.”

Sure, drinking in college is, but not using your followers as leverage.

Another added, “he’s so entitled lol why do people still follower her”

she’s so entitled lol why do people still follower her

One Twitter user wrote, “her team’s gonna come for you next, be careful”
