Fortnite star Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has fired back at popular bodybuilder Greg Doucette, who suggested he’s using performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs) after he shared photos of his workout progress on Instagram.

Tfue has built a massive fan base online since his rise to the top of Fortnite, with over 8.5 million followers on Twitch. However, after he shared an update showcasing his recent physical transformation, some were skeptical of how impressive his results were after just six months.

Among the critics was IFBB bodybuilder and fitness coach Greg Doucette, a respected figure in the fitness industry, who highlighted Tenney in his “Natty or Not” series using his ‘before and after’ pics to analyze his progress.

After explaining how difficult such a transformation is to achieve, while taking some lighthearted jabs at Tfue during the process, Doucette later claimed that it would be almost impossible to gain the muscle mass naturally and said it’s highly likely that he’s on PEDs such as steroids.

”I am saying that I would bet my life or your life, I would bet all lives on this planet against one dollar that he is not natural,” he added.

Doucette reiterated on a number of occasions that the transformation is extremely impressive and stated that Tfue has amazing genetics. However, the bodybuilding veteran stated that such improvements would take most people many years to achieve naturally.

The YouTuber’s criticism prompted a response from Tfue, who reacted to the video during his June 24 broadcast and fired back at Doucette, claiming he only calls people out for a response.

“I feel like he just calls people out, deep down he knows that I didn’t take steroids to get where I am,” Tfue explained, “but I feel he just says it to try to get me pissed and make a video back. I feel like he’s doing this for publicity.”

Tfue also added that Doucette shared few details on why he thought the Fortnite star was using steroids. The Twitch streamer later claimed that there was one simple reason for his rapid muscle growth.

While many gyms have been closed around the world, with different lockdown measures in place during recent months, Tfue says that the key to getting jacked so quickly his own fully-kitted home gym.

“They don’t want to believe that I got this big naturally because the quarantine was going on and nobody had a gym,” he said. “Meanwhile I have a full private gym that I spent like $100,000 on just for me and my friends to workout in.”

Tfue later compared his progress to PewDiePie, whose body transformation was also referenced in the video.

The Twitch streamer and claimed that it was unfair to compare  him to the incredibly popular YouTuber because Swedish star’s gym had much less to work with.

Notorious TikTok vegan That Vegan Teacher has had having multiple accounts 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 almost 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 main 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; TikTokers believe That Vegan Teacher started using multiple new TikTok accounts, although these rumors have yet to be fully verified at the time of writing. One account which came under the username ‘that.holocaust.teacher’ has also now been banned by the platform, however, people believe there are several more accounts that belong to her.

Accounts including ‘thatvegannurse,’ ‘theveganteacher,’ and ‘thatmeatteachermisstofu,’ have all been banned by TikTok so far, but TikTokers report more and more popping up that are yet to be removed.

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.
