Jimmy Fallon responds to backlash over Addison Rae TikTok dance segment
The program got criticism for not offering credit to the primarily Black developers of the dances Rae and Fallon carried out together in an episode on March 26.
“On our last show before break, we did a bit with Addison Rae where she taught me eight viral TikTok dances,” Fallon stated. “Now, we recognize that the creators of those dances deserve to have their own spotlight. So right now, some of the creators will join me to talk about how their dance went viral and then perform the dance themselves.”
Fallon spoke with dancers Mya Nicole Johnson and Chris Cotter, who developed “Up,” Dorien Scott of “Corvette Corvette” popularity, Fur-Quan Powell and Camyra Franklin of “Laffy Taffy,” Adam Snyder, Nate Nale and Greg Dahl from “Blinding Lights,” and Keara Wilson, who choreographed transfer to “Savage.”
Rae shared the sector on Instagram.
“So happy these creators were able to be highlighted,” she composed. “I hope we can all dance soon. Show them love!”
