That Vegan Teacher, aka Kadie Karen Diekmeyer, had amassed 1.7 million followers on TikTok, but now her account has been banned for 'violating community guidelines'.
It comes after a petition signed by more than 20,000 people called for her removal, claiming her content was 'morally and ethically repugnant'.
But Diekmeyer denied the claims levelled against her, opening up about the 'veganphobia' she has experienced.
Writing on YouTube, she said: "Veganphobia is real. It is wrong and it is dangerous.
"My home has been attacked by people who 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. Individuals have doxed my address and phone number.
"People have come pounding on my door in the middle of the night, terrifying my 80-year old mother-in-law who lives with us."
The petition calling for her removal claims Diekmeyer shared content on her TikTok account that constituted hate speech, alleging that she made 'blatantly racist, bigoted, discriminatory statements'.
The petition claims: "Her targets have included minors under 18, the LGBTQ+ Community, person's with disabilities, people of the black community, various religions and more."
But Diekmeyer rejected these claims, stating that she hadn't forced anyone to be vegan, caused anyone to be unwell or discriminated against anyone.
She said: "I have repeatedly stated that the LGBTQ community, and everyone, regardless of skin colour, age, social status or religion should be given equal rights, protected, cherished and loved.
"I also stated that members of all minority groups should tap into their own oppression and use that to help them understand the oppression that the animals live each and every moment in factory farms."
Speaking about her TikTok ban, she said: "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.
"Somehow, it makes you smile to know that an animal rights activist is being silenced on one of the platforms.
"Why is that? Why does that bring you joy? I know why - because you're feeling guilty. You know you shouldn't be eating animals, you know you shouldn't be paying to exploit them, and you cannot look in the mirror and see that in you."
