TikTok star Addison Rae has apologized for All Lives Matter post in social media. She has issued a statement on Wednesday. In that statement, she expressed her support for the Black Lives Matter movement.
After a week-long break, the TikTok star returned to social media and apologize publicly for sharing a video that expressed support for All Lives Matter. In that previous video, she shared a slogan associated with criticism of the Black Lives Matter movement. Addison Rae wants to inform her millions of followers to know that she stands in solidarity in the fight against racism.
The 19-year-old Addison stated, “I owe all of you an apology…Four years ago, I reposted a video that included a woman sharing her thoughts on Black Lives Matter and All Lives Matter that I should not have.”
She continued, “Because of my privilege, I didn’t understand and wasn’t educated enough on the social injustices facing the Black community. All lives CANNOT matter until Black lives do. The Black community continues to be oppressed and damaged by systemic racism.”
Addison acknowledged her “mistakes” and said she is “committed to learning from them.”
