Addison Rae has taken to Twitter to reassure fans that despite her relative quietness on TikTok, she hasn’t quit the social media platform.

Given Rae’s catapult to fame over the last 18 months, it is easy to see why fans might speculate that she was moving away from TikTok and onto bigger things.

Her incredible popularity on the app, which includes 76 million followers and 4.9 billion views, has made her one of its highest earners. At just 20 years old, she has an estimated fortune of $5 million.

However, although the TikTok landscape as we know it appears to be changing, with Griffin Johnson recently confirming that Sway House is “dead”, it looks like Addison is here to stay.

 

Confirming to her fans that she  “didn’t quit TikTok” in a tweet, Twitch streamer Karl Jacobs joked that he was “on the edge of his seat” with her announcement.

While Addison’s suggestion that she and Karl should “debut a TikTok video together soon” was probably a joke, she did say that she has “new content coming soon”, so you never know…

 

Why fans think Addison Rae might quit TikTok?

Although there is no clear evidence Rae will quit TikTok, fans begun to speculate whether she was moving away from the platform after her posting pattern begun to slow down. With the exception of a sponsored post on February 12, the last time Addison posted on TikTok was February 10 – 11 days ago at the time of writing.

This led fans to worry that she might be moving away from the app – with several saying on Twitter that they “miss” her presence.

One fan said to Addison that they were “worrying so bad” that she was quitting, while another remarked, “I miss you posting every day on TikTok.”

Addison Rae started filming for ‘He’s All That’, in which she has a starring role, in January.

She has recently begun filming for her blockbuster film debut as the female lead in a gender-reversed remake of 90’s classic ‘She’s All That’. It has also been rumored that Addison may be gearing up to launch her singing career with some of the biggest names in the industry.

Unconfirmed sources have alleged that she will release a single with poster Nicki Minaj, and that her debut album will be produced by Benny Blanco.

However, no matter how big Rae’s career gets, her tweet should be enough to reassure fans that she is staying with TikTok for the long haul. As she said in an interview with Mane Addicts in December, “I think that as long as [TikTok is] a thing, I’ll be on it.”

Notorious TikTok vegan That Vegan Teacher has created a video response after being banned on the platform for allegedly violating several community guidelines.

That Vegan Teacher, real name Kadie Karen Diekmeyer, has clocked up around 1.5m followers on the app and is known for her very firm vegan beliefs, which she frequently preaches on the app.

She’s also had several run-ins with other top names — including, notably, Minecraft sensation 16-year-old TommyInnit, whose fans bombarded her with hate comments after she suggested someone help him feel more comfortable around girls.

Now, after rumors that she had been arrested in January 2021 (which was proven false), she seems to have been banned from the app altogether.

Why was That Vegan Teacher banned on TikTok?

At the time of writing, there’s no clear explanation as to why That Vegan Teacher has been banned on TikTok, with neither her nor TikTok coming out with an explanation.

While the reason hasn’t been confirmed, a disclaimer on her TikTok profile suggests it’s due to multiple Community Guidelines violations.

This could be any number of things, so it’s impossible to speculate on what exactly the violations could be, and we’ll have to wait for official confirmation before reporting it. According to TikTok’s guidelines though, her misdemeanor could fall under any of these categories:

  • Violent extremism
  • Hateful behavior
  • Illegal activities and regulated goods
  • Violent and graphic content
  • Suicide, self harm and dangerous acts
  • Harassment and bullying
  • Adult nudity and sexual activities
  • Minor safety
  • Integrity and authenticity
  • Platform security

That Vegan Teacher’s TikTok now shows no followers, likes or posts.

That Vegan Teacher has in the past had her videos reacted to by top celebrities such as Gordon Ramsay, who didn’t seem her biggest fan, and Russell Brand for her divisive takes.

A short time later, That Vegan Teacher created a video response to the situation, which she uploaded to YouTube with all comments and likes/dislikes turned off.

In her video, the controversial TikToker accused her critics of being “scared” of telling kids “the truth” about veganism, and alleged that her ban was the work of “veganphobic” users. In her video description, she also alleged that her home had been “attacked” by critics, who left “dead animal parts” on her front door and – even purportedly doxed her personal information.

That’s not all; some TikTokers believe that Vegan Teacher may have started using a new TikTok account, although these rumors have yet to be fully verified at the time of writing.

Previously, she has drawn comparisons between animal cruelty and atrocities such as the Holocaust, which is likely a large contributor to why TikTok users would report her and the platform would ultimately kick her off.
