After a week-long break, Addison Rae has finally returned to social media. The TikTok star broke her silence and issued a public apology for her past behavior.
“I owe all of you an apology,” she wrote in a lengthy Twitter message. “Four years ago, I reposted a video which included a woman sharing her thoughts on Black Lives Matter and All Lives Matter that I should not have. Because of my privilege, I didn’t understand and wasn’t educated enough on the social injustices facing the Black community. All lives cannot matter until Black lives do. The Black community was, and continues to be oppressed and damaged by systematic racism.”

“I see my mistakes and am committed to learning from them. I will never stop growing, learning and fighting for those whose voices rightfully need to be amplified, and will forever believe that Black lives matter,” the influencer continued. “If you haven’t done so already, please join me in supporting and learning more about the global Black Lives Matter movement. I am truly sorry and I am committed to using the platform you all have given me to work on becoming a better ally. I love you all endlessly.”
For those who missed it, fans became pretty worried about the social media star after they noticed that she hadn’t posted on any of her social media accounts in over a week. She normally shares new pics videos all the time, so the fact that she was so quiet on the app was sparking major concern from her followers.
Some people even speculated that Addison’s sudden absence was because she was pregnant or sick in the hospital. But her ex-boyfriend Bryce Hall quickly shut these rumors down.
“She’s fine. Let me just clear it up, she’s not pregnant. I don’t know why that’s a thing,” he told photographers on Tuesday, July 7. “She’s not pregnant. I saw [an outlet] say that I confirmed she’s pregnant, that never happened.”
He also spoke out about it again during an Instagram Live, adding, “Addison is OK and she’s not in the hospital. I don’t know where that even… Half the stuff that’s pulled up on social media just wow. How does that even happen.”
