PewDiePie released a new video slamming creator conventions and how our society reacts to internet celebrities, while mocking the most recent Con failure, TanaCon. 

YouTuber Tana Mongeau, known for her controversial videos that occasionally include racial slurs, threw TanaCon after being repeatedly slighted by another creator convention – VidCon. Unfortunately for Tana, TanaCon was a disaster and PewDiePie was ready to meme it.

PewDiePie showed angry Twitter posts from attendees of TanaCon, which included fans chanting “refund” and complaining about the lack of food, water and security at the venue. A number of celebrity creators who were promoted as participating in TanaCon were unable to attend, due to a lack of planning from Tana and scheduling issues with the concurrent VidCon.

TanaCon was plagued with long lines and ended up being very different from what was promised. At one point, PewDiePie mockingly reveals the only positive to come from TanaCon – a TanaCondom that was included in every guest bag.

Despite the relentless shots at TanaCon and its creator Tana Mongeau, PewDiePie understands why she threw the event in the first place. He makes a hard pivot around the 9 minute mark of the video, sympathizing with why Tana felt the need to throw her own version of VidCon.

“[VidCon] is not what YouTube is, it’s what they want it to be… they pick who they want to have as featured creators and probably don’t want controversial creators like Tana Mongeau to attend their event. Which leads to her coming to the event, and then fans swarm around her, which leads to safety issues and she gets kicked out. And apparently, this happened year after year.”

PewDiePie explains how the lack of convention planning experience doomed TanaCon, but he hopes Tana takes what she learned and tries again next year. He then switched his sights to VidCon and how celebrities are treated at creator conventions, by showing a clip of Casey Neistat waving to screaming fans.

“This is the reason why I don’t want to go to VidCon, people screaming at you is just obnoxious. There is no reason, no reason, why anyone should treat me more than anyone else. I don’t want it, I find it annoying… I hate this whole concept of fame and worship. Why? Why is that a thing?”

“This whole idea of worship is being promoted through these VidCon events where people just run around like f***in Neanderthals… It’s so stupid.”

Mike Majlak reveals why he’s broken up with Lana

Mike Majlak and Lana have been the sweethearts of the internet world for quite some time, but their relationship is officially over, with Mike Majlak breaking the news on YouTube.

Mike and Lana have been in a relationship together for ten months. It’s been a widely publicized roller coaster ride filled with ups and downs. However, it was one that many mutual fans loved to see.

It was also the only relationship Majlak has been involved in throughout the past decade. But sadly, not all relationships can stand the test of time, and the two of them have officially parted ways.

Mike Majlak broke the news in a YouTube video. “Never thought id ever put out a breakup video but this one was necessary,” he said. “I wanted the story told my way before others could tarnish what was an incredible relationship and part of my journey.”

In the video, Mike Majlak explains that he felt like the fans deserved an explanation since the breakup happened out of the blue. “There’s no one specific reason [for the breakup],” he said. “It wasn’t a loyalty thing.”

“The best thing about Amara [which is her real name] is that she’s so fiercely loyal,” he added. “I never once had to worry about her cheating [or] talking to any other guys. It was never about other guys.”

His comment immediately shuts down rumors and accusations that she cheated on him. It’s often the first thing people suspect when there’s a sudden breakup.

Instead, he claimed they were simply “two people who wanted vastly different things.”

“Amara was… obsessed with the idea of linear and traditional life and love,” he said. “She wanted to meet a guy, she wanted to settle down, she wanted to have a family and just live this kind of linear life.”

“That’s just not who I am,” he said. He also claimed she was “trying to facilitate the vision that she saw for the relationship, which was getting a house and moving in with her.”

However, while it made “made complete sense to her,” it didn’t to him, and it didn’t feel right to go ahead with it. 

In the end, there were too many signs that they wanted “two vastly different things in life” and “weren’t cut out to be together” and “go the distance.”

The breakup has been hard on them both, so to make things easier, they’ve been trying not to talk and keeping their distance.

It’s a sad end for one of the more beloved internet couples in recent times, but it’s certainly not a bitter one. The two of them have clearly thought long and hard about the decision.

In the end, it seems like calling it quits made the most sense in the long run, but they’ve parted ways on good terms.
