Night Shift creator and ‘imPaulsive’ co-host Mike Majlak has teased a potentially massive YouTube collaboration in his latest video, where he was joined by none other than FaZe Banks.

As fans of the FaZe co-founder have noticed, Ricky Banks has been absent from content creation for some time, having gone back and forth from break to break over the past year or so.

While he teased a potential comeback via Twitter some time ago, it’s been radio silence on his end ever since — but thanks to a recent upload from Mike Majlak, we know that Banks has a huge project up his sleeve.

In a February 22 episode of the Night Shift video series, Majlak claimed that a “Clout Gang 2.0” is in the works, which was in the works well before Logan Paul announced his surprise move to Puerto Rico from Los Angeles.

“Before I even found out that Logan was moving to Puerto Rico and ruining everything that we’ve created here at the Maverick House, I already started laying the foundation for a new project that I’m working on with Banks and a couple of other people you may know of,” he explained.

“Call it a Clout Gang 2.0,” he continued. “2017 all over again. We’re gonna bring some of the biggest Twitch talent, TikTok talent into the same house.”

The first creator revealed to be part of this new collective is YouTube star and Twitch streamer Adin Ross, who currently boasts over 280,000 YouTube subscribers and 728,000 followers on Twitch.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like the name ‘Clout Gang 2.0’ is sticking, as Banks effectively dubbed it “Cringe” — but the possibility of another massive content group is certainly intriguing, especially in wake of houses like the Hype House and Sway House effectively losing their initial popularity.

For now, fans will have to wait for more members to be revealed as Mike Majlak adjusts to life without Logan Paul and ex-girlfriend Lana… although it seems like he’s doing just fine, considering the hype around his upcoming project.

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.
