The traveling YouTuber known as ‘Bald and Bankrupt’ has received an incredible amount of support on his newly-made secondary channel, where he shares his discoveries in India and Eastern Europe.

Bald and Bankrupt is a unique presence on the internet. His travel vlogs take viewers into the former Soviet states, where he shows off the region’s various cultures, jaw-dropping architecture, and even major historical sites.

His main channel has amassed over 2.6 million subscribers and was started in summer 2018, making for an already big success for the traveling vlogger in just a three-year span.

Bald and Bankrupt’s vlogs are more than refreshing travel episodes, though; their general lack of both music and random montages make for a genuinely intriguing and educational experience for a region that isn’t often advertised in YouTube’s log of globe-trotting content creators.

YouTube star Bald and Bankrupt has scored over 200,000 subscribers on his secondary channel in just two weeks.

However, it seems that B&B has been met with even more acclaim in the past two weeks after kickstarting a surprising secondary YouTube channel. While his main channel features videos that are upwards of 20 minutes or more, and are generally uploaded every two weeks, his secondary account has produced a new video every single day.

These daily vlogs are all around five minutes in length, and take viewers on short jaunts through such vistas as snowy tram rides, Armenia’s cheapest hotel, and even an ancient trading post in the Armenian mountains.

In just two weeks after beginning his new channel, “Daily Bald” has amassed over 207k subscribers. That’s nothing to sneeze at!

Social Blade statistics for the channel also show that he’s averaged over 600k views per week, making for a seriously successful side hustle for the formerly bankrupt businessman-turned-YouTuber.

While B&B isn’t promising that there will be uploads every single day in the future, it seems that viewers are definitely interested in what he has to offer — and we can’t deny that being given breathtaking views of Russian mountains or educational field trips from home is a wonderful way to spend a few minutes of your day.

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.

That Vegan Teacher responds to her TikTok ban

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.
