iDubbbz Controversy

Note: This section contains uncensored references to a racial slur; viewer discretion advised.

On December 10th, 2016, YouTube vlogger Tana Mongeau posted a series of tweets slamming iDubbbz for using the "n-word" and "retard" in his videos. (shown below).

While iDubbbz didn't publicly acknowledge her criticism, he responded by staging an elaborate stunt wherein he traveled to San Francisco to attend a VIP meet-and-greet event with Mongeau, during which he approached the celebrity vlogger for a photograph and blurted out "say nigger!" (shown below, left). iDubbbz was promptly kicked out of the event. The prank was also recorded on camera by his girlfriend and fellow vlogger Raihnbowkidz, which was eventually posted to iDubbbz' secondary channel in early February (shown below, right).

On January 24th, 2017, Mongeau, unaware of the identity of the prankster, recounted her unpleasant encounter with a mysterious intruder at her event in a video titled "The N Word" (shown below). Within 24 hours, the video racked up more than 1.2 million views. Meanwhile, some of her fans began sleuthing online in order to identify the agent provocateur, which ultimately resulted in the exposure of iDubbbz' involvement.

However, the tide of the feud took an unexpected and drastic turn later that same day, when a video clip of Mongeau aggressively yelling the phrase "you fucking nigger" surfaced on YouTube. The video has since been removed. On January 26th, YouTube personality Philip DeFranco uploaded a video to share his thoughts on the controversy (shown below, right). On January 27th, Redditor Filterg submitted a post chronicling several times Mongeau had used the slur in the past to /r/idubbbz.[2]

On February 6th, iDubbbz released a new Content Cop episode criticizing Mongeau's video for exaggerating their encounter in San Francisco, as well as her use of the same racial slur in the past (shown below, left). Within 24 hours, the video gained over 3.5 million views and 158,000 comments. Same day, Redditor AsianWithGlasses submitted the Content Cop video to /r/videos,[3] where it gained over 174,000 votes (66% upvoted) and 7,100 comments within 24 hours.

In response to the revelations about her own past, Mongeau tweeted that she had "made a lot of mistakes" and "an apology will be coming soon" (shown below).

TanaCon was a convention launched by YouTuber Tana Mongeau as an alternative to the YouTube conference VidCon in late June 2018. After an unexpected amount of attendees arrived, the event was abruptly canceled due to safety concerns.

On June 28th, Shane Dawson released a video titled "The Truth About Tanacon," in which he discussed the history of the convention (shown below, left). The following day, a second video about the event was released, titled "The Truth About Tana Mongeau" (shown below, right).

On July 2nd, 2018, Dawson released the final video in the series titled "The Real Truth About Tanacon" (shown below). Over the next week, the videos accumulated upwards of 10.6 million, 9.7 million and 7.1 million views respectively.

In the series, Dawson and Mongeau accuse 21-year-old entrepreneur Michael Weist of failing to organize the convention properly. Additionally, Dawson claims that all the revenues from ticket sales for the event were being held by the ticketing startup Veeps and that Weist is responsible for compensating attendees.
