Dream slammed YouTuber John Swan for trying to ‘demonize’ him after the pair went back-and-forth about the time the faceless Minecraft personality was being impersonated on Discord.

YouTube drama has embroiled Dream once again. The mysterious content creator has been getting targeted by people making fake accounts then proceeding to send heinous, at times racist, messages under Dream’s name.

This is at the center of what the argument is now, as the two bickered about a time Swan allegedly changed his Discord profile to mimic Dream while messaging people that they’re “friends, [that Dream] hates Zak ‘Skeppy’ Ahmed, and that [Dream was] working on a Minecraft sex mod, and [Dream] saying the n-word,” according to screenshots of their conversation.

While this supposed spat was in the past and the two had talked to clarify the situation, Dream referenced the drama in a recent Reddit comment. Swan took offense to that, saying Dream was trying to “smear” his credibility.

His Discord did change to mimic Dream and some messages were sent out, but Swan claims that it was all at the hands of a kid that got a hold of his account after accidentally leaving himself logged in on another computer.

Swan’s story didn’t do much to convince Dream then, and it certainly didn’t change his mind now. “At the time I had hundreds of reasons to be suspicious… How did you know it was on discord right away when I didn’t mention it and our primary communication was twitter? How had we called on discord just before if you didn’t have access?”

Needless to say, Dream wasn’t impressed with the story and claimed he would’ve been fine talking about this in private, but was frustrated at Swan’s attempt at “demonizing” the faceless YouTuber on Twitter.

The two didn’t manage to come to a public consensus, leaving fandoms in the court of public opinion to chime in.

Both YouTubers are pretty outspoken, but as far as Dream is concerned, he’s over this episode as Swan is looking to clear his name from the bizarre situation.

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.
