Tana Mongeau claps back at Dillon Danis over Jake Paul diss

Tana Mongeau has become embroiled in a war of words with Dillon Danis and Savannah Montano after the MMA fighter once again took aim at Logan and Jake Paul

During his ascent to the top of YouTube, Jake Paul hasn’t shied away from being involved with drama or having beef with another content creator. He’s called out people, made videos about them, and even stepped into the ring to fight KSI’s brother Deji.

One non-YouTuber that he can’t seem to quit beefing with, though, is MMA fighter Dillon Danis. His arguments with the cage fighter have gone to such a level, however, that even his wife Tana Mongeau has stepped in to lay down the law and defend her partner’s name.

On September 10, the MMA fighter randomly tweeted out “fuck the pauls” but despite fans tagging the Paul brothers, Tana Mongeau, and Team 10 members, it took a while for anyone to respond. 

That first response came from Jake who turned Danis’ word against him, simply quote tweeting the post and replying: “Savannah did.”

Of course, that didn’t go unnoticed by Danis, who replied himself by claiming to have “teabagged” his wife, Tana. 

Despite saying that she didn’t want to step in and was trying to stay out of the fight between the pair, Mongeau stepped up and fired back herself. “You waited in line after five fans and took a pic,” tweeted the YouTube star. “Your girlfriend in my DMs. Leave me outta this.”

She then appeared to take things one stepped further away from Twitter, with Jake Paul tweeting that his wife didn’t even know who Danis was at the time and that he couldn’t get over her “flaming” him.

The YouTuber added: “When I was an angry husband and said ‘why tf did u take a pic with him,’ she said ‘who is that? what are you talking about,” before backing up Tana’s earlier claim about the wait for a photo. 

It’s not the first time that the Paul brother and Danis have gotten into a public spat, especially when it comes to involving significant others, too. Jake himself has claimed that he’ll fight his rival on the undercard of KSI vs Logan Paul 2 – even asking fans if they’d like to see in that match-up

Until now, though, his attempts of getting on the card have seemingly fallen flat, but further beef with Danis could make it a tasty prospect to see them together in the ring.

Twitch removes “Blind Playthrough” stream tag after backlash

Twitch has introduced a new change to the stream tags on channels, which has completely removed the “Blind Playthrough” tag from the site following criticism around the language used.

It can often be difficult to get discovered as a new Twitch streamer, with thousands of other content creators broadcasting on the site at any one time.

Twitch has previously introduced tags to address this issue in 2018, which can be added to a streamer’s channel and can be used by viewers for filtering their searches to find what they’re looking for.

The Blind Playthrough tag no longer shows on Twitch.

While the usual tags often include information such as language and type of content, one tag that was used for those playing a game for the first time was the “Blind Playthrough” tag.

The tag would indicate that the streamer had not seen any spoilers or that they do not know much about the title’s gameplay and features before playing it.

However, in a recent tweet, Twitch’s community director Erin ‘Aureylian’ Wayne highlighted that they have removed the tag from the site, following criticism around the choice of words used, with some suggesting that the language was ableist.

“Happy to see Twitch has listened to everyone who shared feedback and removed the ‘Blind Playthrough’ tag to encourage more inclusive language for our community,” she added.

While the “Blind Playthrough” tag has been removed from the database, the Twitch director urged streamers to make use of the “First Playthrough” and “No Spoilers” tags in its place.

The term “Blind Playthrough” was central to a discussion on ableist language sparked by AbleGamers COO Steven Spohn earlier in the year and now Twitch has acted in response.

While Twitch’s latest change has been met with some positive responses so far, some users have argued the need for the change, highlighting that “Blind” has two official definitions.

However, Twitch has remained firm on their stance, and streamers will simply need to use an alternative tag while streaming spoiler-free gameplay.
