TikTok star Nessa Barrett has responded to a bizarre conspiracy theory picking up traction on TikTok, centering around a particular lyric in her new song with fellow influencer Jaden Hossler.

With over 14 million followers, Nessa Barrett is a hugely successful influencer on viral video-sharing app TikTok. But one of the things her fans love her for the most is her stunning singing voice, having released several songs.

Back in December, Nessa teased a new single featuring fellow TikTok star Jaden Hossler, who goes by ‘jxdn.’ The short snippet they released was highly praised by fans, with many anticipating what promised to be a great song.

The single, titled ‘La Di Die,’ was eventually released on February 18, and fans absolutely loved the cool track featuring vocals from both the stars.

But one TikTok user, bxllakate, gained traction on the app after posting a theory about the new song. They suggested that the lyrics, “I’ll be dead at 27, only nine more years to go,” could be a reference to a conspiracy called the ’27 Club.’

The ‘club’ is a list of names of famous people who died at age 27, such as Amy Winehouse, with many members of the list being noted for their ‘high-risk’ lifestyles.

hope it’s not true but i can’t think of another explanation🤷🏻‍♀️ @nessaabarrett #fyp #foryoupage #nessaabarrett #27club #conspiracytok #conspiracy

The TikTok claims that the list identifies people who have “sold their souls for fame,” with some commenters finding the similarity between the theory and Nessa’s lyrics concerning.

However, Nessa was quick to reply to the video, simply saying “I would never sell my soul,” which seemed to quell many fans’ concerns.

It is possible that the TikTok star included the lyrics as an intentional reference to the 27 Club, as several artists have done in the past. Nessa has spoken out about mental health through her music before, recently sharing a snippet of a song about the experience of her first suicide attempt.

Several TikTokers like Charli and Dixie D’Amelio have addressed bizarre conspiracy theories about them in the past, as sometimes they can garner quite a lot of attention on the platform.

But in this instance, it’s clear that there is no crazy conspiracy behind the lyrics, and fans are still loving the new hit either way.

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.

That Vegan Teacher responds to her TikTok ban

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.
