The viral YouTube star and music artist known as ‘Corpse Husband’ has seemingly thrown shade toward Spotify for not promoting his music in any of their official Editorial Playlists.

For those out of the loop, Corpse Husband is more than your average influencer. While he’s been creating content on YouTube for some time — mostly narrating horror stories and playing video games — he skyrocketed to popularity in late 2020, becoming a huge presence on the platform for his deep voice and hilarious shenanigans in games with other top creators.

However, Corpse isn’t just a gamer; he also creates original music, which can be heard on his YouTube channel and streamed via Spotify. Due to his burgeoning internet presence, his songs have amassed a huge viewership record.

In fact, his song “E-Girls Ruined My Life” has garnered over 30 million views at the time of writing. That’s nothing to sneeze at!

Despite his musical success and otherwise viral internet stardom, it seems that Spotify hasn’t exactly been promoting his songs, as revealed by the star in a biting tweet on January 31.

In the post, Corpse showed a screenshot of his analytics, which showed that a mere 1% of his Spotify plays had come from the platform’s official Editorial playlists.

Despite this disparity, Corpse made sure to thank his fans for all their support, noting the vast majority of his Spotify plays come from his supporters.

“To clarify, a lot of bigger artists get a good amount of their plays from big Spotify editorial playlists, which is what Spotify’s editorial team pushes to large amounts of people,” he explained. “Labels get their artists on there, etc.”

Corpse’s latest announcement has led to an outpouring of support from his fans, with some listeners noting that his music has reached Spotify’s “United States’ Viral Top 50” list in spite of seemingly being spurned by Editorial playlists.

It seems that, despite Spotify’s decisions, Corpse’s music is a hit with his fanbase — one that has earned him a surprisingly massive online following.

Notorious TikTok vegan That Vegan Teacher has had having multiple accounts 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 almost 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 main 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; TikTokers believe That Vegan Teacher started using multiple new TikTok accounts, although these rumors have yet to be fully verified at the time of writing. One account which came under the username ‘that.holocaust.teacher’ has also now been banned by the platform, however, people believe there are several more accounts that belong to her.

Accounts including ‘thatvegannurse,’ ‘theveganteacher,’ and ‘thatmeatteachermisstofu,’ have all been banned by TikTok so far, but TikTokers report more and more popping up that are yet to be removed.

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.
