H3H3’s Ethan Klein roasted Tana Mongeau’s ‘Creator of the Year’ award at the Streamy Awards 2019, but later deleted the tweets.

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.

However, YouTube comedian Ethan Klein of H3H3 took shots at Creator of the Year award winner Tana Mongeau, with a callback to a video he made about her earlier in the year.

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.

Despite the comedian’s intention of making a joke, some on the platform took issue with it, although most seemed to praise the podcast host for changing his mind and removing it.

As of the time of this article, Tana Mongeau has not responded to Klein’s tweet, although she celebrated her Streamy Award win on social media.

While Klein ended up removing the post, the comedian is sure to bring it up on the h3 podcast which currently has over 2.1 million subscribers, making it one of the largest shows on YouTube.

Conor McGregor explains why YouTube boxing is “good business” for the sport

Jake Paul and Logan Paul helped popularize ‘YouTube Boxing’ in recent years, although it’s often described as a mockery of the sport. However, Conor McGregor explained why he isn’t against it and thinks it’s good business.

Conor McGregor has been focused on his upcoming UFC 257 bout against Dustin Poirier for a while now. However, that hasn’t stopped Jake Paul from doing his best to rope the former double champion into an exhibition boxing match.

Jake first called him out back in November 2020 after he knocked out Nate Robinson. Then, he taunted him to accept a $50 million fight offer several weeks later and has been flailing about ever since. 

He still hasn’t managed to get his attention. However, his antics did draw out comments from UFC President Dana White and Conor’s coach, John Kavanagh. Now, Conor has finally shared his thoughts on YouTube boxing as a whole, and here’s what he had to say.

Jake Paul has tried and failed to bait a response from Conor McGregor.

“A lot of people are criticizing [YouTube boxing] as maybe making a bit of a mockery of fighting,” asked an interviewer. It’s the predominant view among fans of combat sports. “I want you to weigh in on that for me.” 

“If they are fighting, well, then it can’t make a mockery of fighting, right?” said Conor. “They’re getting in, and they’re competing. I am not so much against it. The YouTube kid and the NBA star competing [was] good business.

“Am I into those competitions myself? It’s not the most high level if any level… [but] as they say if it makes dollars, it makes sense,” he added. “I know Dana and the UFC are not really into it, but… I’m not so against it. I think if people are willing to get in and take the risk of making that walk, I am certainly a viewer.”

Conor’s opinion might come as a surprise to fans who expected him to make scathing comments. However, as a businessman himself, it seems like he’s all for it. Plus, as he said, YouTube boxers are still fighting and giving it their all.

On another note, Conor didn’t seem too incensed about Jake. He barely mentioned him at all. 

Still, it’s only a matter of time before Jake responds, and there’s no doubt he won’t be too thrilled about being referred to as “the YouTube kid.”
