TikTok star turned singer Addison Rae recently featured on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and the internet is not amused. The 20 year old star made an appearance on the show to promote her new single "Obsessed." She also taught Jimmy Fallon a few TikTok dance moves and talked about social media fame.
While Addison Rae may have hoped for a better reception, the entire internet was out calling her bit on the show "cringy." Some are even calling out Addison Rae for "stolen moves" from black creators who originally made viral TikTok dances.
Addison Rae and Jimmy Fallon's TikTok dances get panned as "cringeworthy"
The 2 minute clip features Addison Rae teaching Jimmy Fallon a bunch of TikTok dances that the two perform as a duo at the end of the section. Rolling their collective eyes, the internet didn't appreciate the effort, with many Twitter users spamming the posts with comments of cringe while others began calling her out for apparently stealing content from black creators.
Addison Rae released her new single "Obsessed," after her breakup with on-again, off-again TikTok star Bryce Hall. In an interview, Addison revealed the inspiration behind the song:
"I was driving right before the studio. I had dropped off my ex-boyfriend, my boyfriend at the time. I dropped him off at his house. He looked at me and was like, 'I'm obsessed with you.' And I was like, 'Me too.'"
While the song's numbers are doing well on streaming platforms, people on Twitter have been very vocal about their distaste for the song.
