Social media can be a dark and vicious place at times. While content creators with massive followings can garner millions on views, the power of fan bases is also a force to be reckoned with, for better or worse. This time, it seems like TikTok star Addison Rae is on the receiving end of a cruel joke by K-pop stans. In an odd turn of events, the hashtag #RIPAddisonRae started trending, with many claiming that she's no more. 

The bizarre trend started with a few K-pop stan accounts alleging that the star had 'died' and almost made it seem real, complete with tribute tweets and even alleged that news sources had confirmed the same. Shortly after, some accounts tweeted about how she didn't get a chance to collaborate with Loona, a K-pop girl group, and even referred to her latest Jimmy Fallon appearance, where she performed famous TikTok dances.

Some took to Twitter to call out those jumping on the trend, seeing that it was not only misinformation, but also extremely insensitive. "#RIPAddisonRae is trending but @whoisaddison is okay. No matter how you feel about her joking about her supposedly dying isn't at all funny. I know she's not everyones cup of tea but it's not funny to people who care for her. Trending this isn't cool. Act like adults. Honestly." Tweeted a user.
