Addison Rae TikTok Account Disabled
In a bizarre sequence of events, TikTok star Addison Rae on Friday said her account had been hacked — and then was temporarily disabled — before being restored a few hours later.
An unknown hacker (or hackers) took over Rae’s TikTok handle, which has 55.5 million followers, changing the account name to “joeandzak1” and updating her bio with the cryptic message “plugwalkjoe zak n crippin.” TikTok temporarily banned Rae’s account for community-guideline violations, according to The Tiktok Shaderoom account on Instagram.
Rae, whose full name is Addison Rae Easterling, tweeted about the incident at 8:37 p.m. ET on Aug. 14, saying, “my tiktok is hacked :(” She’s the No. 2 most-followed creator on TikTok, after Charli D’Amelio (79.5 million followers).
