YouTube star Tana Mongeau is hot off the heels of her feature appearance at VidCon London, but a surprising health issue is throwing a wrench in her current success.

Tana Mongeau’s second MTV reality series, “No Filter,” is currently airing on YouTube, with the content creator also teasing an upcoming book and even a new song.


With so much in the works, it comes as little surprise that the star’s immune system has come under fire — this time, in a completely unexpected way.

YouTube star Tana Mongeau updated fans with a surprising health issue in early March.

Mongeau shocked fans by posting a photo of her eye to Twitter on March 5, which was incredibly swollen and puffy, showing symptoms not unlike the classic effects of pink eye.

Tana Mongeau showed off her swollen eye to the internet, and even managed to joke about the sudden condition.

Despite the jarring nature of her condition, Mongeau managed to poke fun at herself, joking about a headline written by Metro Entertainment concerning the health issue.

“‘Tana Mongeau suffers horrendous swollen eye as humour stays intact’ is my favorite headline i’ve ever read about myself to date,” she Tweeted.

That’s not all: in a series of now-deleted Instagram stories, the MTV starlet claimed that the swelling was, indeed, pink eye, and explained that her eyes often swell up when she gets stressed.


“…I have a flight in 30, but my eye looks like this because every time I stress out, my eye swells,” she said. “I was stressed because I had pink eye, but now it’s gone, so now I just have a swollen eye. It’s super awesome.”

Even Tana’s manager was surprised by her seriously swollen left eye.

However, she later clarified that the swelling wasn’t strictly related to pink eye; instead, the issue stemmed from problems with her sinuses, as the star explained in a Tweet a day later.

“I just feel the need to let the world know what’s wrong with my eye is from my sinuses,” she clarified. “Not letting people nut in my eye. Should I have left this in my drafts?”


Tana’s hilarious response to the speculation may have arisen from her broken veneer in January, which came off of her tooth after she bit down on a dollar bill at a nightclub.

Despite her chaotic start to 2020, it doesn’t look like anything is going to hold this YouTube star down — not even a crazy swollen eye.


Twitch streamer Jinny stunned as man tries to sell her drugs on stream

IRL Twitch streamer Jinny was left shocked after two men tried to sell her drugs while she toured the city of Hamburg in Germany.

Jinny has grown quite a following thanks in part to her IRL traveling antics where the Korean streamer routinely has odd adventures. Her trips have resulted in her befriending waitresses at a Texas Hooters, being attacked by wild deer in Denmark, and even setting her backyard on fire.


Now, in her most recent trip in Germany, the streamer found herself in quite an awkward position as she was offered drugs during an October 7 broadcast.

While talking to viewers, a random man suddenly began talking to her in broken English.


“You’re lucky to be in Deutschland. My ganja is the best,” he said. “You get three for five.”

It’s unclear exactly what units of measurement the man was selling three of for five Euros, but ganja translates to marijuana or weed. The incident really shocked the IRL streamer who had no idea what he was talking about.

“I don’t speak German,” she stated as he and another man conversed in the language.

Jinny's Twitch chat
Jinny’s chat warned her the man was selling drugs.

“Do you need ganja?” the man asked in English.

“What is ganja?” Jinny wondered. “Iguana?”

Eventually, Jinny looked at her chat and saw that her viewers were spamming translations and explaining how he was trying to sell her drugs – something she wanted no part of.


“I don’t need ganja. It’s okay,” she laughed and went on her way. “That was very random. Do I look like I smoke weed? Uh, maybe.”

Amusingly, the streamer went on to explain that she was very confused and seriously thought the man was trying to sell her an iguana.


“I thought he said ‘do you want to buy an iguana,’” she chuckled. “Why would I want to buy an iguana all of a sudden?”

Luckily, Jinny wasn’t forced into buying any drugs or reptiles during her encounter, but it just goes to show that even when a camera is rolling, weird stuff happens on a regular basis.
