After criticism from some online who called the bathing suit disrespectful to the Christian faith, TikTok influencer Addison Rae removed from her Instagram account with a photo of herself wearing a bikini set with religious connotations.
Rae could be seen wearing a white bikini with the words Father and Son written across the top, according to a photo posted on Aug. 2. The photo had been removed from the picture on Wednesday afternoon. It is not known when it will be taken down.
According to its website, the $100 bikini set, which includes a bottom with the words Holy Trinity, is a collaboration between Adidas and a clothing company, Praying.
Representatives for Praying, Adidas and Rae did not respond immediately to a request for comment.
In 2019, Rae gained a lot of fame after TikTok videos of herself dancing steadily gained popularity. The 21-year-old TikTok star later expanded her career into music, movies and modeling.
These people are going to learn the hard way not to play with GOD, and I am going to say that. One person tweeted, "Just wait and watch."
What is wrong with Addison Rae? I respect if she is religious or not, but that swimsuit is disrespectful, according to another Twitter user.
I felt sick to my stomach, and the first thought that popped into my head was: '' Why is it always Christians? Christian influencer Brittany Dawn Nelson said in a TikTok video that she reposted on Instagram, in response to Rae's photo.
She continued to leave Jesus alone. Christianity is now acceptable in our society to slander and mock. Some people on Twitter defended Rae's ad, citing other celebrities who have worn different versions of the same bikini set, including singer Christina Aguilera and Italian bassist Victoria De Angelis.
idk i feel like hundreds of people wear the same bikini like christina aguilera wore it last week and nobody batted an eyelid wrote a Twitter user.
On Twitter, a user wrote that addison rae was cancelled because of the brand's inappropriate use of words, and was just finding it funny since celebs have worn their bikinis without getting cancelled.
