Popular Twitch streamer Byron ‘Reckful’ Bernstein has claimed he is willing to hire people to murder the public, including members of his Twitch chat.

Bernstein made the concerning claims live on Twitch while discussing what would happen if a viewer approached him in public and harassed him.

The American stated: “Y’know, someone’s gonna walk up to me, say whatever… Look, go the fuck away. I don’t care that you exist. I’ll kill your entire family. Get the fuck out of my fucking face. I will hire ten people to kill your entire family.”

Reckful continued his tirade, stating that he had said these things to people in the past, and that he didn’t care about the things he said.

Bernstein then turned his attention to his Twitch chat, claiming that “to hire somebody to kill somebody is fucking cheap,” before warning his chat; “Someone in chat right now, I’ll fucking look up your information, I’ll find everything about you, and I’ll kill your entire family. It’s cheap.”

Towards the end of his rant, friends who were also in the call began to talk over Bernstein, trying to drown out what the former World of Warcraft pro was saying. It’s unclear if Bernstein was joking when he made these comments, and has yet to reference the statements on social media.

Members of the Twitch community on Twitter have stated their frustration that Reckful hasn’t been punished for his outburst on Twitch, but fellow streamer Trihex was banned for accidentally saying a slur on stream during the same week.

“What he said is morally wrong and illegal,” stated one Twitch user. “He should be punished, if not permanently banned from Twitch.”

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

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.
