Valorant’s Executive Producer Anna ‘SuperCakes’ Donlon revealed that Sykkuno and friends are her favorite streamers to watch, and gifted them some Twitch subs, but Sykkuno’s response had fans in stitches. 

Riot’s Valorant devs have a lively presence across social media. The team is always listening and interacting with the community, and often respond to questions from players.

After complaints from pros and casual players regarding the Stinger and Frenzy dominated meta, Valorant Game Designer Nicholas Wu Smith even took to Twitch to discuss the future of the two currently infamous weapons.

This time though, Valorant’s Executive Producer SuperCakes took to the streaming platform to reward Sykkuno, her favorite streamer, but it didn’t end quite as expected.

Valorant boss praises Sykkuno’s squad

A tweet from our favorite dev expressed her love for Twitch sensation Sykkuno and his crew, who are made up of iconic streamers such as 100 Thieves’ Valkyrae and YouTube star Jacksepticeye.

Writing that “Skyykuno and teammates are a new favorite crew to watch stream VAL after a stressful day at work,” and calling them “delightful.” All of this culminated in SuperCakes gifting 5 subs to the team.

However, it went wrong in classic Sykkuno style. The streamer shouts out “Riot SugarMuffins” for the subs instead of Riot SuperCakes.

After a moment of silence, Valkyrae corrects him, while Jack is heard exclaiming “they complimented you and you got the name wrong?!”

Riot “SugarMuffins” responds

While fans were chuckling over the slight mix-up, SuperCakes took it in her stride.

Quote tweeting the clip, she responded “it might be time for a name change… though I prefer to bake cakes.”

The entire situation is classic Sykkuno, and it’s great to see fun interaction between Riot’s development team and the people who are contributing to their game’s success.

We can’t wait to see if SuperCakes changes her name to SugarMuffins in honor of her favorite stream team, but until then we’d be content if whipped up some muffins instead!

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.
