Addison Rae faces “a lot of body shaming” from trolls online.
The TikTok star made a name for herself on the video app, but has said the attention has come with a lot of negativity, as people will often comment on her looks as well as telling her she “doesn’t deserve” her success.
She told Rollercoaster magazine: “I do experience a lot of body shaming, and also some say I don’t deserve my success.

“So I have to regularly remind myself to be myself, no matter what, and that I’m unique and healthiest by being me.
“Also I remind myself to be graceful towards people and understand everyone’s having their own battles.”
Meanwhile, Addison recently said she finds life in the spotlight difficult, especially when it comes to dating.
The 20-year-old beauty has learned from her relationship with former boyfriend Bryce Hall about her personal life being open for scrutiny and doing her best to protect it.
She explained: “I never really made it a point to share, you know, details about anything.
“And I think it’s kind of, part of it is like just me and, you know, Bryce for example, so many people’s eyes were on us out of nowhere. It was hard to adjust to the thought of people being interested in that, or like seeing it and reacting to it more than usual, people being concerned about your relationship stuff.
“I think the lesson I learned from it is just keep your circle small, and keep your fights private, keep you know, intimate things private, and respect each other.”
And Addison also said negative comments she receives online don’t “define” her.
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.
“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.”
