Addison Rae has opened about the hurtful comments she's received on social media.

The 20-year-old TikTok star, who has amassed 76 million followers on the platform, said the feedback has been "triggering" for her.

"I am 20 and my body is constantly changing, but people have this high standard around body image and say, 'Oh, you have to look like this to look great or to look hot or to be cool or to be pretty,'" she told Glamour UK.

"For me, a lot of people have said, 'Oh I love how comfortable she is and she doesn't look like the beauty standard.' It's a backhanded compliment sometimes because people will be like, 'I'm so glad she's confident that she doesn't look perfect."'

Rae admitted how much it "hurt" to conform to an unrealistic body standard.

"I think everyone's perfect, so why is there some standard of 'this body is the ideal body'?" she said. "I have thought a lot in the past year that it doesn't really define me and I am learning to love my body and who I am, for what I am."

TikTok superstar Addison Rae has talked about negative comments she's received on her body.

The social media star has learned to resist drawing comparisons with other people and love the skin she's in.

"I used to ask myself, 'Why doesn't my body look like that? Or why isn't my hair that way? Or why is my face this way?' Or even feature-wise, sometimes I would just really look at myself and pick myself apart for no reason," she said. "There is so much going on in the world today, adding self-esteem onto that is really tough. If you can't mentally, emotionally or physically love who you are it becomes really difficult to even be happy."
