Addison Rae & Jimmy Fallon Get Backlash for Doing Uncredited TikTok Dances

Addison Rae & Jimmy Fallon Get Backlash for Doing Uncredited TikTok Dances

Not everyone is loving Addison Rae‘s dance moves.

The 20-year-old TikTok star made an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Friday (March 26), where she demonstrated several TikTok dances alongside Jimmy Fallon.

However, following the segment, Addison and Jimmy were called out in viral tweets for not crediting the Black creators who made many of those dances.

“I’m literally screaming,” one person wrote, with a side-by-side of the originator of the “Up” dance alongside Addison’s performance.

“This is why I bang on EVERYBODY about the economics and race of social media. ‘Tik tok dances.’ the names of the artists not there. The actual choreographers not there. She’s on national television but where are the Black kids who actually made these,” another person wrote.

“This is a miss @jimmyfallon. Let’s give credit to the black creators……,” wrote The View‘s Sunny Hostin.

“Setting aside the questions of ownership, just look at this video. It’s so miserable. Broken, exhausted culture,” added another.

“It’s kind of hard to credit during the show, but they all know I love them so much, and I support all of them so much. And hopefully one day we can meet up and dance together,” Addison said in an interview after the controversy.
