Japanese streamer Meowko had an unfortunate accident while dancing during an October 2 Twitch broadcast where she spilled a glass of water all over her Mac laptop. 

While doing a dance for her viewers, the 23-year-old nonchalantly flaunted her arms and caused a glass of water on a kitchen counter to fall over and spill onto her laptop. 

After letting out a shriek, the panicked dancer rushed away to get some paper towels and frantically tried to get the water off her computer 

“Oh my God,” Meowko said repeatedly as she wiped the keys. “It’s my first time I spilled water.”

After trying for awhile, but having no such luck with the laptop appearing to be turned off, the streamer asked her stream what she should do. “It’s dripping wet!” she cried while holding the Apple product above her head. 

With no knowledge on the best course of action, Meowko read her stream’s suggestions which included holding the power button, getting a hairdryer, buying a new laptop or the old rice and microwave trick.

“Put it upside down?” she read. “Like this?” before turning the laptop on its side, trying to find any way to make the machine work again. “Put on rice?” she read, still flabbergasted at the turn of events. 

Eventually the teary-eyed streamer got close to her camera and repeated “what should I do” yet again. 

“This was my buddy for five years,” she humanized the laptop. “First time I spilled drinks on him.” 

Unfortunately for Meowko, the suggestions just got worse with some suggesting she take out the battery, which would void the warranty on a Mac (and something she didn’t know how to do) and even call the police. 

“Should I call the police?” she asked, bizarrely appearing to entertain the idea or just rereading her chat.

Finally, the streamer decided to just let the laptop dry for a couple of hours, but not before asking her viewers if she should “go to the hospital”. It’s unclear why she would need to go or if she was trying to be funny. 

The condition of Meowko’s laptop remains unknown, but at least she was able to calm down after a good few minutes of being extremely upset.

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.
