‘AND THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE’: TikTok bans ‘That Vegan Teacher’ after 20,000 sign petition to remove her

Kadie Karen Diekmeyer: Many of you woke up this morning and found out that my account was banned on TikTok. Somehow, it makes you smile to know that an animal rights activist is being silenced.

HANNA FRISHBERG: Kadie Karen Diekmeyer, better known by her handle “That Vegan Teacher,” amassed more than 1.7 million followers on TikTok — until this week. As of Monday night, when you search her popular account on the video-streaming platform it says “couldn’t find this account.” Her account was reportedly banned for “violating community guidelines” following the publication of a Change.org petition, which accuses her of using incendiary measures to force her views on the public…

The Change.org petition… claims that Diekmeyer used her TikTok to make “blatantly racist, bigoted, discriminatory statements against anyone who doesn’t view veganism her way and her way alone,” and promote “multiple films that are dangerous to children,” calling her use of the platform “morally and ethically repugnant.” Now she is challenging her audience to “rise up” in her defense.

“Many of you woke up this morning and found out that my account was banned on TikTok, and I know many of you are jumping for joy and thinking that this is a great victory,” Diekmeyer said in a video posted Tuesday titled “Censorship: Why Good People Must Rise Up And Speak Out,” that she posted to her YouTube account, which has over 31,000 followers. “Somehow, it makes you smile to know that an animal rights activist is being silenced,” she added…

Diekmeyer goes on to deny a series of accusations in her latest video — claiming she never “stalked anyone,” nor “‘forced’ anyone to be vegan,” and “nobody ever got sick or ‘died’ because of me.” She also proclaims that “Veganphobia is real,” evidenced by the fact that people have allegedly “left dead animal body parts on my front steps. Eggs were thrown over my fence. Death threats were uttered. Groups of people tried to steal my dog, Bella”. SOURCE…
