On TikTok, Kadie Karen Diekmeye was mostly known as @ThatVeganTeacher. With over a million followers, she was infamous for the cringe-worthy videos she posted with the aim of educating people about veganism. That Vegan Teacher was often criticised for her content as some believed she was forcing people to turn vegan.

Why was That Vegan Teacher banned from TikTok?

It is reported that her account was banned due to “multiple community guidelines violation.” It remains unclear at the moment what these violations were exactly. Before this ban, several people had requested for her account to be banned because of the ‘forceful’ content she posted.

Some TikTok users had even created a petition to make it happen. The petition alleged that the creator “has violated multiple community guidelines in various videos, duets, and sounds.” It further added that some of her statements were problematic.

As of today, the petition has more than 20,000 signatures, and counting! Meanwhile, others addressed her problematic content on Twitter. It is unclear if her TikTok account will be restored. Banned users can make an appeal, however, it is up to the platform if it wants to restore the person’s account.

Who is Kadie Karen Diekmeye?

Before her TikTok profile was banned, Diekmeye would often post content on the platform. Her engagement got her millions of followers. Around the same time, Gordon Ramsay also reacted to one of her videos. Even though the chef was not happy with her content, That Vegan Teacher celebrated the publicity nonetheless.

Apart from TikTok, she also has a YouTube channel where she has nearly 24,900 subscribers. She often posts videos there as well. Diekmeye even has a Spotify channel where she sometimes posts content. As of now, she has not addressed the recent TikTok ban.

Did That Vegan Teacher go to jail?

In January 2021, rumours surfaced on the internet claiming That Vegan Teacher was going to jail. So, was it true? According to a YouTube video, the rumour started after she seemingly poked fun at a commenter who claimed their friend died after going vegan.

In response to the video, one person commented, “Wait a damn minute is That Vegan Teacher actually in jail?”. Another individual tweeted, “So I saw on TikTok that the vegan teacher is ALLEGEDLY going to jail because in Canada it is illegal to call yourself a teacher if [you’re] not [one].”

Another added, “I got great news, that vegan teacher who forced people to be vegan and said that people who eat meat should go to hell said false information like ‘God is vegan’, ‘veganism is a religion’ is gonna be arrested.”

On 21 January, That Vegan Teacher denied that she was arrested or in jail. “Apparently I’ve been arrested. Apparently I’m in jail. Apparently there’s some article about me in the Daily Mail,” she sang in a video posted on TikTok. She also told everyone to “stop freaking out” and remain calm, adding that followers should go check out her free documentary, Dominion.

While we wait to see whether her account will be given back to That Vegan Teacher, we can only hope that more petty drama is to come.
