TikTok star Addison Rae took to her official Twitter handle late Thursday night, 14 October 2021, to reveal that she has been permanently banned from TikTok.
When she made the announcement, she didn’t confirm the reasons for the suspension. However, she joked that it was “time to get a job.”
The TikTok star came into the spotlight for starring in the Netflix film He’s All That, a reboot of the 1999 teen comedy She’s All That, and securing a multi-picture film deal with the streaming service.
Before her suspension of the social media platform, Rae was one of the most followed content creators on the platform, with over 85 million TikTok followers. Her following grew by performing popular dances that were trending on the platform.
She shared screenshots of her ban notice from TikTok by taking to her Twitter handle late Thursday night. The message from the company read, “Your account was permanently banned due to multiple violations of our Community Guidelines.”
However, within an hour of making it public, her TikTok account was reinstated.

Perez Hilton was a TikTok star who was permanently banned from the social media platform for going against its community rules in December 2020. He is a well-known American blogger, columnist, and media personality.
Perez joined TikTok in August 2019, and shortly after, he had become a ground-breaking figure on the app, stockpiling more than 1.6 million lovers and procuring a typical 10 million views consistently.
On TikTok, Mr. Hilton reached a new generation of media consumers who are more likely to get breaking news from social media than from push notifications. The app also helped him stay busy and upbeat in a difficult year.
After his ban, he spoke about it in a video uploaded on YouTube and Twitter, where he said, “I think the clarification I have been forever precluded with no notification is because I’ve been talking about a lot of creators on TikTok. However, I haven’t done any aggravating or irritating, and TikTok is declaring that I am.”
According to The New York Times, Mr. Hilton believed that it was pressure from TikTok’s biggest stars that led to his ban, though the company disputed the fact in an email by their spokesperson.
The email statement reads: “We are deeply committed to maintaining a welcoming and supportive community environment. Our Community Guidelines apply to everyone and everything shared on TikTok, and we remove accounts that repeatedly violate our policies.”
Buddy Haynes was a famous TikTok star from Tennessee before he was banned. His TikTok name was TheBuddy
The TikTok star was banned because of his creepy post towards young girls. The Federal Trade Commission also got involved, stating that by allowing underage people to use the platform, TikTok had violated the children’s online privacy protection act.
Due to this, the platform had to make a $5.7 million settlement to the government. It also had to ban TheBuddy permanently or they were going to lose more money, or worse still, face ruin.
TheBudday, after he was banned, spoke with BuzzFeed where he revealed that he had an express discussion with a 14-year-old.
He admitted to BuzzFeed that the discussion occurred (after he guaranteed he’d been hacked), yet that he didn’t realize they were 14.
