What happened between TikTok stars Mya Johnson and Addison Rae?
“I was shocked and I was really happy ’cause it’s like my challenge made it all the way to TV, which is like—that’s crazy. But then as I started to think, I was like dang, I wish that could’ve been me and Chris [Cotter] performing our own challenge at his show.”

Fans were mad at Addison Rae for not crediting Mya for the dance. But Johnson did not blame Addison for not crediting her. She said that it should have been her and Chris Cotter’s time as they were the ones who created the dance in February. Talking about Black creators not getting proper credit Mya said,
“This isn’t the first time this has happened and I don’t want it to continue. I feel like it is very important for us to get our credit because we are very good creators that are very overlooked in what we do.”
What does Addison Rae say about the backlash?
After facing backlash for not crediting Mya Johnson on her Up dance choreography which she performed on Tonight Show, Addison Rae has released her statements. She said that the creators were credited in the original YouTube video. Rae said that it’s difficult for her to credit the choreographers during the show. Rae said,
“But they all know that I love them so much and I support all of them so much. Hopefully one day we can all meet up and dance together. I had so much fun. I’m very grateful and thankful. It was a great time.”
