Charli D’Amelio thought a hashtag dedicated to Charli XCX, who lost a friend in tragic circumstances, was about her and wrote an ‘awkward’ message thanking her fans for their support.

Charli XCX’s fans showed her an outpour of support on social media after the tragic death of her friend and collaborator, Sophie. As a result, the hashtag #HereForCharli was trending worldwide.

But in an awkward turn of events, Charli D’Amelio’s fans slipped up and thought the hashtag was dedicated to her instead. They started writing supportive posts devoted to her using the hashtag even though they had no idea what it meant.

Then, the situation got even more awkward: Charli D’Amelio made the same mistake after seeing so many posts written about her. She even wrote an elaborate ‘thank you’ message, which has since been deleted.

Charli D’Amelio mistakenly thought the #HereForCharli hashtag was about her.

“I am looking through the ‘HereForCharli’ hashtag, and oh my goodness, you are all so sweet to me,” the deleted tweet read. “You have no idea how much your kind words warm my heart. I am so lucky to have you all by my side! I love you.”

Some fans pointed out that it was an honest mistake because all she saw was fans posting about her. All she did was respond to them by thanking fans for their support, which isn’t a big deal.

However, others thought it was a bad look and highlighted the egotistical nature of influencers. “Man, that’s so messed up,” wrote one fan. “If you had actually clicked on the hashtag and actually read it, you would have known it was for Charli XCX.”

Fortunately, the embarrassing situation diffused quicker than it started. It’s undoubtedly a moment that Charli D’Amelio and her fans would want to forget.

However, the main thing is that it didn’t take the spotlight away from the hashtag’s real purpose for very long, which was to show support to Charli XCX after the devastating loss of her friend.

Neither Charli D’Amelio or Charli XCX has commented on the mistake.

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.
