Addison Rae is under fire after posing in a Christianity-themed bikini on Instagram.
The picture is part of an Adidas collaboration with fashion company Praying which sells simple clothes, bags, and swimwear with slogans written on them.
The TikTok star has been blasted for the post, which she shared on August 2nd, and has since deleted the photo from her feed.
However, at the time of writing this, she hasn’t addressed the backlash or apologized, and fans are still really upset by the picture.
ADDISON RAE POSES IN A RELIGIOUS BIKINI
On Tuesday, Addison Rae took to Instagram, where she has over 40 million followers, to share a photo of herself wearing Praying’s Holy Trinity bikini.
The white swimsuit retails for $100 and says the words ‘Father’, ‘Son’, and ‘Holy Spirit on each cup and the string bikini bottoms.
This is the Holy Trinity, which is a Christian doctrine that defines one God existing in three divine persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
In the raunchy shot, which only captures Addison’s exposed top half, the influencer posed in the bikini and the Adidas and Praying logos are written on top.
Created by Alex Haddad and Skylar Newman in 2020, Praying is a popular up-and-coming brand that uses basic typography, slogans, and images of pop-culture icons.
However, the Adidas and Addison Rae collaboration hasn’t gone down well with fans who have blasted its religious connotations.
@whoisaddison why do you gotta disrespect Christianity like that? You don’t disrespect any other religion, just Christianity? And why do you have to create it, @adidas? Not that I was ever a fan of adidas (or Addison Rae for that matter) but I’ll never buy anything from adidas. pic.twitter.com/S4g2mkfRZL— Danny Bee 🇺🇸 (@DannyBee8801) August 4, 2022
INTERNET STAR BLASTED ON SOCIAL MEDIA
Addison Rae has had a lot of backlash for flaunting the religious bikini in such a scandalous way.
One person wrote on Twitter: “Why do you gotta disrespect Christianity like that? You don’t disrespect any other religion, just Christianity? And why do you have to create it, @adidas? Not that I was ever a fan of adidas (or Addison Rae for that matter) but I’ll never buy anything from adidas.”
“Your new bikini is highly offensive… yet if it was any other religion you wouldn’t have done it,” said another.
A third person added: “When things like the Addison Rae situation happens… it makes me question humanity. Is Christianity not a serious religion to anyone I’m so confused it’s so disrespectful and disgusting to watch and see happen on a day to day basis. #adidas #addisonrae.”
“What the heck is this??? So flipping disrespectful. I guarantee that u wouldn’t do that to any other religion. The things people do for money is disgusting,” tweeted another.
ADDISON HAS DELETED THE PHOTO
Following the backlash, Addison has now deleted the photo from her Instagram feed, but she hasn’t addressed the post or made an apology.
She returned to Instagram the following day to advertise her new doll and range of plushies which are available at Walmart and online.
However, many are urging her to apologize in the comments of her TikTok videos, with one person writing: “Not you acting like nothing happened.”
Another said “we need an apology” whilst a third person added: “Is no one gonna talk about how she’s disrespecting Christianity”.
“Blasphemy,” one person also commented before another wrote: “We saw that Instagram post.”
HITC has reached out to Addison Rae for comment.
