Addison Rae, a popular TikTok star and breakout singer, is now making a foray into acting. In a Netflix film trailer for the rehash of 1999's She's All That, Addison Rae plays popular girl Padgett Sawyer, daughter of Rachael Leigh Cook's character from the original film.

He's All That, set to be released on August 27th, follows Padgett Sawyer taking on a bet to make high school outcast, Cobra Kai's Tanner Buchanan, the prom king.

However, the online community has not taken well to the trailer for Rae's debut film. The backlash over Addison Rae's involvement in the film follows after Rae allegedly introduced herself to former president Donald Trump at a recent UFC fight on July 10th.

Users began commenting negatively on the trailer, with one user stating they "can already see the ratings now." Another user commented:

"What has this world come to..."
