Addison Rae is one of TikTok’s biggest stars, and that unfortunately means that she’s no stranger to trolling and mean comments.

Like any other human on the planet, these things to get to her.

Speaking to Glamour Magazine, she said: “I’ve dealt a lot with online hate and social media drama, with people that are very opinionated and don’t want people to be happy.”

She went on to say that she has learned to not let most of it bother her.

“When I look at negative comments I can’t let it get to me that much and I think, ‘That doesn’t define me, and they don’t really truly know me in my heart.’ There’s going to be people that don’t like you and that want to tear you down, but you have to love yourself for who you are.”

However, comments she does find triggering usually have a common theme.

“A lot of it has to do with body image,” she admits.

“It’s a really hard thing to deal with when you’re a girl, especially going through your teens. I am 20 and my body is constantly changing, but people have this high standard around body image and say, ‘Oh, you have to look like this to look great or to look hot or to be cool or to be pretty.’”

“For me, a lot of people have said, ‘Oh I love how comfortable she is and she doesn’t look like the beauty standard.’ It’s a backhanded compliment sometimes because people will be like, ‘I’m so glad she’s confident that she doesn’t look perfect.’ It hurts sometimes when people say that, because I think everyone’s perfect, so why is there some standard of ‘this body is the ideal body’? I have thought a lot in the past year that it doesn’t really define me and I am learning to love my body and who I am, for what I am.”

Addison went on to say taking time offline, exercise, skincare and most importantly seeing a therapist have been huge factors in helping her build her self-worth.

Addison’s boyfriend Bryce Hall recently gifted the star with an incredible necklace for Valentine’s Day worth a whopping $70,000. The necklace was custom made to say “bad bleep”, a phrase which became famous after Addison said it during an interview last year.
