Addison Rae, a TikTok influencer, was on Today’s show last month he taught Jimmy Fallon to dance.
The segment, however, found itself slightly controversial when it was found that many of the dances played by Rae were created by younger influencers, many of whom are black.
Fallon touched on the situation on the show tonight, which you can see below. He said, “We recognize that the creators of these dances deserve to have their own spotlight.”
The creators Fallon spoke to on the show include Mya Johnson and Chris Cotter, whose video based on Cardi B’s Up went viral.
Rae herself has previously acknowledged that she didn’t create the dances – which is common in the world of TikTok, but said that she credits the creators on her social media pages. This wasn’t necessarily possible on the NBC late night show.
Rae, who has nearly 80 million followers on the social media website, will make her acting debut in She’s All That. Reboot He’s All That recently recorded by Netflix.
