However, her Twitch debut didn’t go down well with fans.
Addison Rae gets backlash following Twitch stream
Since Addison Rae joined the Among Us Twitch stream she’s been getting a lot of backlash on Twitter – but why?
Well, there’s not really a reason at all. A number of people who dislike Addison are simply hating on her because she joined a Twitch stream with all their favorite streamers.
False claims began spreading on Twitter that Addison is ‘racist’ and ‘homophobic’, which is allegedly why a lot of people didn’t want her in the Among us stream.
Over the past year, Addison has gained huge fame from her TikTok account, making her subject to a lot of trolling.
Fans defend Addison on Twitter
Despite the hate, many fans also took to Twitter to defend Addison, calling out people who were sending her hate for no reason at all.
One person said: “If u dislike Addison Rae, that’s valid, but do NOT hate on her just for interacting with ur favs that’s weirdchamp.”
“Yeah Addison Rae is in the lobby but who cares i’m excited for Karl, Quackity, Dream, George and Corpse together man,” said another.
Another person tweeted: “Idc if you don’t like Addison Rae just be respectful and don’t send her unnecessary hate for playing with her friends. stop gatekeeping your favorite creators it’s not cute.”
