YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg had an awkward argument with the controversial ‘That Vegan Teacher’, who praised him for going vegan … even though he’s not.
PewDiePie is one of the most popular influencers around. The Swede is the most subscribed independent YouTuber and has gone from playing Amnesia in the dark to battling the T-Series for the top spot on the site over the course of his 11-year career.
PewDiepie now has over 110 million subscribers, so it makes sense for him to get a number of reactions from other influencers … including the divisive “That Vegan Teacher.”
Who is this vegan teacher?
This vegan teacher (real name Kadie Karen Diekmeyer) went viral on TikTok last year for her strong views on the vegan lifestyle, and she’s not shy about calling out to others not to follow in their footsteps.
Diekmeyer was banned from TikTok in February of this year for several alleged violations of the community and has since switched to YouTube, where she uploaded a strange video praising PewDiePie for allegedly going vegan.
It’s unclear exactly why this vegan teacher thinks PewDiePie stopped eating meat. The focus of her video seems to revolve around a photo that he is shown in one of his latest videos of two burgers surrounded by fries.
There’s no way to tell if the food is actually vegan or not, and the editor of PewDiePie even claimed that he just threw the photo in after Googling the word “meat”.
In addition to evaluating his views on animals and his eating habits, Diekmeyer even wrote a song for PewDiePies “Vegan Initiation Day”, which the YouTuber and his co-creator CinnamonToastKen had a lot of fun about in their reaction to the bizarre situation.
“She’s projecting a lot on you right now, and you haven’t said anything about what she’s saying in this video,” remarked Ken. “She is so proud of you.”
“Does she understand that I didn’t make this burger?” Asked Kjellberg. “This is a photo of a burger my editor posted, and I don’t know why!”
Is PewDiePie vegan?
While PewDiePie isn’t a vegan, he and his wife Marzia are pescatarians, which means they eat fish but hold back on other types of meat. PewDiePie has also raised concerns about pork consumption in the past.
Unfortunately for That Vegan Teacher, it looks like their assumptions about PewDiePie are misguided – but that hasn’t stopped him from enjoying himself from the ordeal anyway.
