The Streamy Awards wrapped up its annual ceremony on December 13, as online content creators from around the world gathered to celebrate the best of their industry in 2019.

Ethan Klein roasts Tana Mongeau's Streamy Award win

In a now deleted tweet, the host of the 'h3' podcast cracked a joke about the Creator of the Year winner. "Congratulations to Tana Mongeau for winning Creator Of The Year!" he said. "Thank you for being courageously yourself and a positive role model for young people everywhere."

The social media post included an attached photo of her from his video titled 'Instagram vs Reality' that showed the star in a side-by-side comparison to highlight the use of Photoshop editing.

In the video he posted in May, the comedian highlighted how influencers and models use photo editing software to alter their body to look different from real life, and argued it gives their followers unrealistic expectations as to what beauty is.

The YouTuber then deleted the tweet and explained what happened to his followers who had missed the post. "She won streamy for creator of the year for those who are confused, and well deserved!"

He then followed that up with an explanation for why he had removed the joke, stating, "Alright y'all I feel bad I'm removing it god bless!" as it seems he felt it was bit harsh upon further reflection.
