A representative for Addison Rae has denied that the TikTok star ever ‘liked’ a tweet that supported former President Donald Trump

It was rumored earlier this week that Rae ‘liked’ a Twitter post appearing to suggest she supported Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election.

However, a rep for Rae, 20, tells DailyMail.com: ‘The discrepancy has been resolved.’ 

Some Twitter users suggested that the young influence endorsed the tweet from MMA fighter Derek Brunson that read: ‘Who y’all voting for. ‘RT’ for Hillary Clinton. ‘Like’ for Donald Trump.’

The rep added to JustJared that ‘a screenshot from Addison’s phone which reflects that she has not liked the tweet. She has no memory of ever liking this tweet. We are in conversations with Twitter to figure out this discretion.’

‘The glitch has been resolved,’ the rep also said. 

The ‘glitch’ comes after Rae caught backlash for apparently introducing herself to Trump during at the Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier‘s UFC 264. 

‘I’m Addison. Nice to meet you. I have to say hi, hello. So nice to meet you,’ she told the man, who appeared to be Trump, in the viral clip.

After shaking hands with the former president of the United States, the social media star told him that she just ‘had to say hi’ and that it was ‘so nice to meet you.’

The clip of Addison’s run-in with Trump, once uploaded to NELK’s YouTube channel, went viral across multiple social media platforms.

It drew mixed reactions from the TikTok superstar’s devout fanbase, with a few fans speculating about her political affiliation – a topic that was first brought up and shutdown by the star early in her career.

Back in 2019, Addison clarified in the comment section of one of her TikTok videos that she was ‘not registered and never have been registered before’ to vote in her home state of Louisiana, after a TikTok went viral claiming she ‘had allegedly voted Republican in 2014, 2016 and 2018 in Tarzana, California,’ as per PopBuzz. 

‘This isn’t real hahahaha. First I’m from Louisiana, second I’m not even registered to vote and never have been I’m actually doing it for the first time with someone important and I’m excited to do so. This is fake,’ she wrote at the time.

‘why would she want to say hi?? It ain’t adding up,’ read one critical tweet, who suggested that Addison’s support of the Black Lives Matter movement and other social justice movements contradicts her apparent desire to meet Trump during Saturday’s fight.

Another shocked fan condemned ‘all these people trying to defend [Addison] when that man [Trump] is an evil person that she does not need to be associated with ??

‘like why the f**k would she want to introduce herself if she didn’t like who he is,’ the tweet concluded.

Excuse me: 'Hi! I'm Addison. Nice to meet you,' said Addison politely, after appearing to tap on Trump's shoulder to get his attention
