Dancer and TikTok star Addison Rae took to Instagram on Monday, July 12 and shared a video that looked decidedly scary. The short video showed Rae sporting a black eye. And her nose was bleeding as well. 

Wearing a pink patterned, low-cut dress, Rae looked unfazed in the video. She captioned it, “Vegas- 1 Addison- 0”. It appeared to be an augmented reality filter on Instagram. Fans of Rae, however, were immediately concerned.

TikTok stars Addison Rae and Bryce Hall no longer 'just friends', fans thrilled after Braddison is 'now a thing'



 

 

“Broooo what happened,” asked one fan. “Are u ok?” asked another. Yet another fan commented, “Get well soon,” in all caps. But soon people figured it out. One fan wrote, “thought that was real.” And another person even wrote, “nosebleeds are hot”. 

Earlier, Rae was at the receiving end of some outrage. The 20-year-old TikTok star had shared photos of herself at a preliminary event for the UFC 264: Dustin Poirier vs Conor McGregor match in Las Vegas on July 9. In the photos, she stood in a lime-green dress, holding a UFC-branded microphone. She captioned the post, "I studied broadcast journalism in college for 3 whole months to prepare for this moment." The caption as per reports was in reference to her brief stint studying sports journalism at Louisiana State University, before she quit to pursue her social media career.



 

But her tweet sparked outrage. One person said on Twitter, “People are mad because she literally did nothing to get said job and was just handed it while other people pour years into this and get nothing, its classist and for some reason you don’t see that, but what can I expect at this point.” Another person tweeted, “This is disrespectful to all the people who go to college and work their asses off for jobs like this and sometimes don’t even get them but because Addison has clout she gets them over QUALIFIED sports journalists.” 

One person tweeted, “I went to Journalism school for two years and interned (unpaid) for another 1.5 years after that.  Never got hired on and had to switch careers.  Thank you for this info.” Another Twitter user said, “so you are taking away the opportunity for people who actually need this job while you have all this ''fame'' if you can even call it that way cuz it comes from fucking 15 second videos. very nice.”

One Twitter user said, “It was an obnoxious and tone-deaf slap in the face to the people who actually studied for and are trying to make it in that profession. If she showed some humility and humbleness when she announced it, the response may have been different.”



 



 



 



 



 

Rae later quoted her own tweet and wrote, “nvm y’all got me fired.”



 

A source with knowledge of the situation told E! News, however, that "she did one social activation for UFC where she interviewed Dustin because they're from the same town, Lafayette. She's not, nor was she ever, a correspondent. She'll be at the fight tonight but just as a spectator. There were never any plans for her to have any further official responsibilities."
