Popular YouTube stars Erika Costell and Tana Mongeau have come out with apologies after a party video of them saying they “don’t care” at a party was deemed insensitive.

A number of high profile YouTubers, TikTok stars and other online personalities have been called out in recent weeks for ignoring guideline measures as set out due to the ongoing global health situation.

Tana and Erika are the latest to come under fire after a video of them at a party saw them yelling that they “don’t care” — seemingly about the guidelines set out to help save lives and maintain good health as much as possible.

The pair have now come out shortly after to issue apologies for their action — but have denied allegations that it is in relation to the health crisis, instead saying they were referring to some drama that occurred between the two in the past.

Erika was the first to apologize, with a tweet posted late on July 26, saying that she “understands that this came off as offensive during this time.”

She then added that it was “insensitive, careless and stupid for me to even be at a party during this,” apologizing to anyone she let down or upset and taking accountability for her actions.

Just a few hour after, Tana posted an apology to her Instagram story, saying that attending a party during this time was “careless and irresponsible.”

She also said that she wants to “fully apologize and be better than this,” adding that she “needs to be a better example and person.”

Naturally, many were still upset about Tana and Erika’s actions, including YouTuber Mac Kahey who said that they need to “do better” and that “a simple note app apology doesn’t erase the damage.”

It seems as though Costell and Mongeau have both learned their lesson and won’t be looking to make mistakes like this again. That said, it’s not clear how much longer this health crisis will be ongoing — so there may be a few missed parties yet.


Alexandra Botez responds to creepy Twitch viewer asking to see her feet

Twitch streamer and chess guru Alexandra Botez wasn’t going to put up with trolls asking to see her feet during a live stream.

During the broadcast, as Botez was challenging players in chess, a viewer decided to ask the streamer if they could see her feet – something that promoted a hilarious response from Alexandra.

“Sir, you’re not seeing… you know what,” the frustrated streamer began, before pausing with a smirk. “I’m going to show you what’s on my feet, and you’re going to stop asking.”

With that, the 25-year-old lifted up her shoe and showed it off in front of the camera.

“I’m wearing these clogs, okay? This is all you need to know. And if you would ask me that in person, I would turn into Romanian Botez,” she added.

Next, Alexandra pretended to smack the person with her clog while rambling on in Romanian.

“And I would hit you in the head with my shoe,” she warned. “And you wouldn’t see feet because your vision would be blurry.”

Amusingly, after that whole rant, the streamer went right back into challenging whoever she wanted to play next, as if the whole foot fiasco never even happened.

Fans have requested feet before

This isn’t the first time that Alexandra has been asked to show her feet, oddly enough. Earlier in 2020, a viewer donated $3 and asked the streamer to reveal her highly fetishized body part.

Instead of showing them off, however, she simply drew a foot on a piece of paper and held it up for the camera, which confused her two on-stream guests.

“Someone donated to show feet,” she explained, prompting some laughs in the chat.

While Botez has handled the foot remarks quite well thus far, the next time someone dares to ask the chess queen to slip off her shoes to expose her feet, they could be getting a clog to the skull.
