Jimmy Fallon addressed the social media controversy over the last episode of his talk show The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where he had fledgling pop star and TikTok personality Addison Rae perform eight different dances that are popular on the platform, a number of which came from Black creators. 


The clip made its way to Twitter and Instagram, where it faced significant criticism, not just for Rae's inability to perform the dances but also for the complete erasure of the Black teens who created almost all of them. 

Fans were incensed that Fallon did not bring on any of the creators and instead chose a white woman to perform them all, without even mentioning who created them.
