The Minecraft community has been in turmoil since popular YouTuber Dream was accused of cheating during his 1.16 speedrun. Moistcr1tikal has now chimed in by calling out Dream over his response to the allegations.

The Minecraft content creation scene has been filled with drama following accusations that Dream – a popular Minecraft YouTuber with nearly 15 million subscribers – cheated during his 1.16 speedrun attempt.

After a video was shared outlining the accusations against Dream, the YouTuber posted a response on December 23. In that video, Dream pushed back against the claims of cheating and said a “statistical expert with a Ph.D.” showed how the accusations were incorrect.

Dream’s response was largely criticized after Reddit user u/mbf- (a particle physicist with a Ph.D. in Physics) pointed out many amateur mistakes in the data analysis. After weeks of videos and posts regarding the allegations, Charlie ‘Moistcr1tikal’ White offered his thoughts on the situation.

In a clip, Moistcr1tikal – a variety content creator on Twitch and YouTube – slammed Dream’s response video. “It’s like someone spit on his honor or something,” he began.

“He could’ve just said ‘Yeah I cheated, what are you gonna do about it p**sy?'” he continued. Someone in his chat mentioned Dream hiring a Harvard professor – the statistical expert mentioned in his response video – and Moistcr1tikal slammed Dream over that point again.

“Oh did he? Can you tell me what professor that was?” he asked, and then continued “I know you can’t because he didn’t say who it was.” This point has been one of the major criticisms of Dream’s response, and Moistcr1tikal did not cut the YouTuber any slack over it.

Dream posted a detailed response to the cheating allegations made against him, but a statistics expert has criticized many of the video’s claims.

Moistcr1tikal pointed out that u/mbf- was willing to provide his real name while debunking Dream’s response. For many, the fact that Dream has not confirmed who the expert in his video was is further proof that he was in fact cheating.

“You can’t make a response like that, that hinges on the qualifications of your Harvard Ph.D. statistical astrophysicist grad and not give info on who did it,” he said, with the clip ending as the streamer shook his head. “That’s not how that works.”

Dream has not commented on the situation via YouTube or Twitter since the response video posted on December 23. The Minecraft community will need to wait and see if any parties provide more evidence to support or debunk the claims of cheating.

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.
