Probably one of the most unlikely targets for cancel culture, TikTok superstar Addison Rae is getting cancelled for apparently being racist when she was younger. This is perhaps the most bizarre case of cancel culture in action that I’ve seen. So is Addison “racist” no, not really.
Addison has 2 things going against her. Number 1, she is a TikTok star. She has the highest number of followers on the platform with over 46 million. The problem being that TikTok is an insufferable platform that should be shutdown forever. I am not the only one who shares that sentiment, TikTok which is run by a Chinese company will most likely be banned in the United States due to issues with privacy. The second thing is that she is an attractive white female. White females seem to be the easiest targets of cancel culture just see JK Rowling and Lana Del Rey.
Addison has supposedly said 2 “racist” things one being a tweet that was a video supporting the statement the All Lives Matter. The other being a video which leaked in which she tries to get her friend to say the n-word. The one video she tweeted is crazy because she posted this video 4 years ago when she was 15. The other video was pretty bad, not gonna lie but from the sounds of it she was probably joking. So we are now at a point where we are punishing kids for mistakes they made as a kid. I guess everyone that has been shaming her on Twitter is perfect and have never done anything wrong in their life. I don’t think Addison Rae is racist, she was young and she did something stupid there is no denying that. There should just be some sort of statue of limitations on cancelling someone. I don’t think Addison is racist, she is still only 19 and she made some mistakes. But if people can forgive Desean Jackson than I’m sure we can forgive Addison.
