TikTok superstar Addison Rae sparked outrage this past week with a ‘controversial’ tweet about the UFC.

In the lead-up to Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier facing off on Saturday night, the UFC has been doing everything in its power to promote the big event.

One PR method they’ve really invested heavily in?

Getting celebs who aren’t normally associated with the promotion to hype it up.

That’s where Rae comes in.

On Friday, she sent out this tweet:

Naturally, the internet didn’t react kindly to it.

Obviously this particular sports-TikTok scandal isn’t as exciting as when a boxer literally got busted cheating on his pregnant partner with a TikTok star, but it’s still pretty funny.

Will the UFC ultimately be put off by the reaction Rae is getting? Unlikely. Mind you, this is a promotion where one champion blatantly sexually harassed his opponent in a fight, another got kicked out of a gym for taking her pants off, and one of the guys headlining this week’s festivities walks around with a watch of two people having sex.

Clearly, the UFC isn’t easily offended. As such, it’s unlikely that the backlash towards Rae will sway them one way or the other.
