Kyle Forgeard of NELK Boys revealed to fans why Jesse ‘mtvjesse’ Sebastiani had been a rare sight on the channel during 2020 and why he might not be returning during a recent broadcast on Twitch.

NELK is one of the most well-known channels on YouTube. Love their pranks or hate them, there’s a good chance you’ve seen or at least heard about the group before.

In recent months, fans had started to notice the absence of Sebastiani from videos, but the other members of the group had remained silent about what was going on, until Kyle cleared things up during a recent stream.

Jesse is still one of the most popular members of the group, despite his recent absence.

While playing some blackjack, Kyle explained that since the channel was founded in 2010 they had done so many pranks that Jesse was just sort of “burnt out.”

“We’ve been doing this a long time, we’ve done a lot of pranks, we’ve pretty much done everything, and I think Jesse’s kind of just burnt out,” Forgeard told viewers. “He still wants to be in the videos and stuff, but you guys have seen the videos from the past year.”

While he still wants to be included in content, Sebastiani seems to be done with producing and coming up with ideas, of course, once he speaks about the situation we’ll know exactly what’s going on.

“I just think Jesse’s kinda done with the videos and s**t, like in a way,” the 26-year-old explained. “And no, we’re not set at all, we bring in a lot of money from our merch drops and stuff, but I don’t think me and Jesse have taken money out of the company in like, five months maybe?”

Jesse apparently packing up shop is a hard pill to swallow for NELK fans, a lot of whom view the duo of him and Kyle as the “heart and soul” of the channel.

“When I think of “Nelk” I think of “Kyle & Jesse”. That would suck if he was done,” one user replied, and while he might be done with NELK, that’s not saying he’s done making content altogether. But, we won’t know exactly what his plans are until he speaks out himself.

Notorious TikTok vegan That Vegan Teacher has been 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, who’s 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 (rumors that were 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 misdemeanour 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.

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.
