A video of TikToker Addison Rae walking up to Donald Trump and greeting him in the middle of a UFC event has created quite a storm on the Internet. While some are busy reacting to the rare sighting of the two personalities, the others are questioning her political views.
The social media influencer was dragged for her alleged voter registration last year, after a TikToker claimed that she had voted for the Republican in 2014, 2016 and 2018. However, she did brush it off as a rumor and clarified to her fans that she had never registered herself to vote.
She even received an apology from the TikToker who had posted the original video.
TikToker seems thrilled to have met the former President
The viral video shows Addison walking upto Trump and tapping him on the shoulder, all of which has been recorded on camera.
When the former POTUS turns, she extends her hand and goes on to introduce herself saying, “I am Addison. I have to say hi. Hello. So nice to meet you.” While she’s busy meeting Trump, her friends seated in the back row are heard saying on the camera, “Addison Rae’s exposed”.
Even though meeting Trump came across as a big deal to Addison, she herself hasn’t commented about meeting the former president. Perhaps, social media users need to wait for her to address it before drawing conclusions.
Addison voted for the first time in 2020
When Addison was accused of supporting Republicans, she clapped back at the haters for spreading rumors and even revealed that she was going to cast her vote for the first time in 2019.
The 20-year-old said, “This isn’t real hahahaha. First I’m from Louisiana, second I’m not even registered to vote and never have been I’m actually doing it for the first time with someone important and I’m excited to do so. This is fake.”
Meanwhile, addressing the hate she had gathered following the voting rumors she further tweeted, “Growing up our parents always said ‘don’t believe anything you see on the internet’ yet everyone somehow trusts everything they read on here… Remember, you only know the surface of most people stop spending time bringing others down with untruthful information.”
Social media users are debating over TikToker meeting Donald Trump
Taking into consideration the huge fan following Addison has, it was given that her fans would come to her defense. While the ones supporting her have noted that she shouldn’t be branded as a Republican for simply greeting the former President. And others are simply baffled by witnessing her excitement in the presence of Trump.
One tweeted, “addison rae introducing herself to donald trump at ufc 264 was not on anyone’s bingo card”
Another added, “So Addison Rae just “HAD” to say hi to trump? But she’s not a supporter ok…”
One shared, “Addison Rae introducing herself to Trump is something that never crossed my mind, but damn, I love it. They both seem so nice.”
And another tweeted, “Addison Rae really went up to trump IN THE MIDDLE OF A FIGHT, that’s like talking during a movie”
