Rumours are flooding social media that TikTok star That Vegan Teacher was arrested, but she previously confirmed it was all fake news on TikTok.
If you’ve been on TikTok recently, you’ve probably seen a video of Gordon Ramsay calling a woman a ‘vegan donut’ and proceeding to eat a burger on your ‘For You’ page.
Gordon certainly wasn’t impressed by the woman’s song, but did you know that she’s actually TikTok famous?
The woman is known as That Vegan Teacher, and she’s hit headlines this week after social media users began claiming that she’s been arrested. But it’s not true, and it was all just a social media hoax.
Who is That Vegan Teacher?
Kadie Karen Diekmeye, better known on social media as That Vegan Teacher is a TikTok user with 1.6 million followers.
She’s a very passionate vegan who frequently takes to the social media app to share videos about the benefits of being vegan, discussing issues like animal abuse and nutrition.
However, she has often been criticised for ‘forcing’ her vegan values upon people.
Rumours flood social media that she was arrested
Back in January, rumours began spreading around social media that That Vegan Teacher had been arrested, and now the rumours are back again in February.
Social media users are sharing a long list of allegations that were said to explain why she was going to jail, and there were claims that she allegedly violated some Candian laws, but none of it was actually true.
In fact, she was never actually arrested at all, and she took to TikTok to shut down the rumours herself last month.
That Vegan Teacher shuts down arrest rumours on TikTok
As the rumours circled social media in January, That Vegan Teacher took to TikTok to confirm that she had not been arrested.
She made up a song to address the arrest allegations and said:
“Apparently I’ve been arrested, apparently I’m now in jail. Apparently there’s some article about me in The Daily Mail. I have no idea what the hell’s going on, I’m just sitting her at home writing an animal admiration song. Please everyone don’t believe the rumours.”
So, That Vegan Teacher was never arrested, but why were people saying she was?
Kadie is a pretty controversial figure online, and there are always a number of petitions to try and remove her from TikTok. So, people probably made up the arrest hoax because they simply don’t like her.
In the latest news, That Vegan teacher has now been banned from TikTok completely. Read more about that here…
