‘Favorite part about myself:’ Laurel teen shows TikTok what life without legs is all about

Addison Benson went viral on TikTok just by being herself.

The 15-year-old Laurel girl recently got her driver’s license and won a state softball championship. She’s an avid Gilmore Girls fan and loves clothes shopping, especially from online outlet Shein.

She posts TikTok videos showing off her new outfits and goofing off with friends, and sometimes she posts jokes about her legs. She answers questions she gets about her prosthetics, and she has a collection of videos titled “no feet :).”

With more than two million likes on her TikTok account, videos joking about her limbs have exploded in views, some filled with comments asking how she is so happy and if it’s OK to laugh at her jokes.

Benson is a double below-the-knee amputee, and she thinks it’s funny that some people view “happy” and “amputee” as mutually exclusive. Still, she does her best to reply, sometimes joking back at people in the comments.
