Minecraft and YouTube star Dream is giving away thousands of dollars to his subscribers for just wearing his skin in their different servers. 

Many content creators have dipped their toe in with Minecraft over the years, with some managing to have massive success as a result of it. 

In recent months, the DreamSMP crew – a scripted Minecraft server for YouTubers and streamers – have been dominating with their influx of views, followers, and new subscribers. 

Even though he’s been under fire for apparently cheating in speedruns, Dream – who has over 16 million subscribers on YouTube – is giving back to his fans, and all they have to do is wear his iconic skin in Minecraft.

Dream has over 16 million subscribers on YouTube, surging in popularity over the past year.

That’s right, there are no major hurdles to deal with, you just have to be subscribed to Dream on YouTube and be wearing his Minecraft skin while playing on a server.

The YouTuber won’t be found on a special sever, mind. He tweeted that he’ll mostly be found on the Hypixel server. That’s a massive public server that is open to everyone – you just need the server code which is: mc.hypixel.net.

Now, the tricky part might be running into him, however, when you get onto Hypixel given that there will probably be so many people wearing his skin, it might be difficult to tell everyone apart. 

Dream has already given away $1,000 to one lucky player, revealing that he ran into them as a random partner in one of the server’s mini-games. 

So, keep an eye out for his actual in-game name – which is just Dream – when taking part in the mini-games and don’t get fooled by an imposter. 

Other YouTubers have used Minecraft to conduct similar giveaways, seeing as there is so much you can do inside the multiplayer sandbox game. 

Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson gave one fan a house for winning a building competition, and while Dream probably won’t go that far, he might giveaway even more in the future. You just never know.

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.
