Why did TikTok ban Addison Rae permanently? 'Well time to get a job' jokes the star
One of the highest-paid TikTok stars Addison Rae was sent a message that her account has been permanently banned. The networking site sent her a message about the ban, stating she had violated multiple community regulations over a period of time. Rae might now be known for being Kourtney Kardashian's bestie and as the star of that forgettable Netflix movie but TikTok is what catapulted her to stardom. She continues to generate content on the platform and it does pay off handsomely but what happens now?
Of celebrities banned from TikTok, Perez Hilton was slapped with a permanent one in December 2020 after violating rules and guidelines. His videos raked in more than 10 million views per week after he joined the platform sometime in 2019. “I’ve been very depressed this year, and TikTok gave me something to really look forward to every day. It created joy for me and an escape and allowed me to share that with people," Hilton said in an interview this June. He was removed after Charli D'Amelio fans petitioned for his ban following a comment he made. D'Amelio posted a video of herself dancing to Brockhampton's 'Sugar' in a bikini in March 2020 and Hilton had questioned if it was appropriate, leading to the backlash.

Why did TikTok ban Addison Rae permanently?
"Well time to get a job," Addison Rae joked on Twitter, sharing a screenshot of the "your account was permanently banned" message she received from TikTok. There is some good news for Rae fans that her account is still up on the platform, however, it's not clear if she's allowed to post new content. The last post on her account is an advertisement she posted on October 14 which is still available to watch. There was no word from Rae herself as to what led to the ban, however, on October 15, the ban on her page was revoked and a representative for TikTok said it only lasted an hour.
“Addison’s account is up and running as normal,” a rep for TikTok told Page Six. “Her account was briefly down last night then restored within the hour. TikTok faced backlash for allowing her back on the platform and favoring her even after breaking guidelines. Rae has 85 million followers on TikTok and is said to be the third most-followed person on TikTok only behind Charli D'Amelio who has 126 million followers and Khaby Lane with 116 million followers and counting.
