Addison Rae was recently shaded by comedians on "The Daily Show" after her appearance on "The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon" stirred up controversy.

Many grew upset with Addison Rae and others as well, as they are became famous at the expense of black creators.

Addison Rae slammed for not giving credit to black creators

On Sunday afternoon, comedians Roy Wood Jr. and Dulce Sloan of The Daily Show claimed that the internet star was "stealing black culture." This was after she appeared on Jimmy Fallon's show to "teach" him TikTok dances.

Addison Rae had been under fire two months prior as well, right after the episode aired. However, many black creators have grown furious with popular TikTokers like Addison Rae and Charli D'Amelio for never crediting their dance moves.

Roy Wood Jr. brought up the situation, also stating that the backlash caused the show to bring on black creators a week later.

"I don't remember which late night show it was but the white girl went on the late night show doing all the black dances, and the black dances never got credited."

"They had to bring the black dancers on a week later, like 'Oh sorry about that, these were the ones that actually the thing.'"

Dulce Sloan then proceeded to mention the close friendship between Addison Rae and Kourtney Kardashian, which many see as more of a "mentorship".

The comedian subtly dragged the two for "stealing black culture," implying that Addison "wanted a master class" from Kourtney.

"That was that Addison Rae girl who's been hanging out with Kourtney Kardashian and it is interesting that there's a girl stealing black culture, hanging out with a girl stealing black culture. I guess she wanted a master class on how to steal from black culture."

Addison Rae has yet to issue an apology over the credit controversy.
