“It’s time to get a job,” says Addison Rae after being banned from TikTok
We’ve reached the end of an era, are we? In a recent interview, Addison Rae said that she had been banned from TikTok, the app that had propelled her to fame.
After being permanently banned from using TikTok for several violations of the app’s Community Guidelines, she tweeted on Thursday, October 14, “Well, time to get a job!” with a screenshot of the pop-up notice.
A Twitter follower joked that she could look for work at TikTok, to which the young influencer playfully replied, “Thanks I’ll try it out!!”
However, when I woke up the next morning, her profile looked to be restored.
With over 85 million followers, Rae is one of the most well-known creators on the video platform. According to Forbes, she was one of the highest-paid celebs in 2020, bringing in $5 million.
According to the former Louisiana State University student, she’s learned a lot since becoming a social media sensation in July 2020, and she says it’s not always easy being in the public eye. I’ve realized that I’m more sensitive than I thought I was, but I’m also stronger than I imagined, too.
When it comes to remarks about her body, dealing with the skepticism of certain viewers “is lot harder” than Rae ever imagined. In an interview with Us Weekly, she said, “It can be incredibly challenging when people point out things about you that you already have anxieties about.”
Despite her initial popularity on TikTok, Rae has already branched out beyond the confines of the internet. In March, she released her breakthrough track, “Obsessed,” which has now amassed over 24 million views on YouTube. He’s All Same, Netflix’s gender-flipped remake of the 1999 hit, premiered in August and she made her big-screen debut that month.
I was so happy when I was cast that I was crying all the way home,” she told Variety of her reaction to getting the job. “I was so pleased to show the world more of my love for acting and to pursue the ambitions that have been in my head since I was a small child.” “It’s going to be difficult to demonstrate to others how committed and enthusiastic I am about acting. Even though there’s a lot of pressure, I’m ready to take it on to prove to others that this is who I am and what I love to do.”
Her love life is just as successful as her job. For several months, Rae has been seeing Omer Fedi, and according to a source, the two are “very into each other.”
“She’s smitten with him, to put it mildly. According to a source in August, “she thinks he’s so amazing and likes his music,” and that they’re “becoming pretty serious,” the two are “extremely smitten.”
