Rantsona, a portmanteau of "Rant" and "Persona," is a slang term given to online personas used in YouTube reaction videos featuring rants or controversial topics. After a couple of screenshots from reaction videos with furry personas went viral on Twitter in March 2019, the type of videos quickly gained more attention.


It is unknown where specifically the term "rantsona" originated from, although the context of the term has been consistent since the start. The earliest found examples in a Twitter post by @minkyew[1] on September 12th, 2018 and Redditor[2] operativehog on October 30th, 2018.


On March 24th, 2019, Twitter user @SeanRMoorhead[5] posted a screenshot of a furry YouTube channel Esoteric The Free taking a controversial stance on the 2019 Christchurch Shootings (shown below). In the next 5 days, the tweet managed to gather over 1,000 retweets and 5,300 likes. Replies to the tweet also feature screenshots of the channel reacting to the controversy the tweet sparked.
