YouTube starlet Tana Mongeau slammed backlash she’d received from fans after it was revealed she had tickets to the 2020 Super Bowl, but decided not to attend.

The Super Bowl was held on February 2 at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida, and saw The Kansas City Chiefs take the victory over the San Francisco 49ers 31-20. It’s a very patriotic event for Americans, so those who are able to score tickets to the NFL game are very lucky indeed.

YouTuber-turned-MTV personality Tana Mongeau was given the chance to go but didn’t sparking backlash online from fans who claimed she “wasted” the tickets – something she later hit back at.

Tana Mongeau slams Super Bowl criticism

On February 2, the 21-year-old tweeted out a screenshot of a text message she’d sent to a friend that read “I’d rather sleep all day than use our super bowl tickets” after she was seen partying until the early hours on her Instagram Stories.

Hours after the game had finished, she later followed up by saying that she regretted not attending the event. “I HAD SUPER BOWl TICKETS AND DIDNT GO,” she said. “i’m just now realizing the severity of that.”

The internet star wasn’t the only one who was bummed out about not attending though – her fans weren’t too happy about it either, and showed this in her Twitter mentions.

“you wasted so much money on them omg,” one user said. “I love you tana but do you understand how privileged you sound and are, you literally could go to the super bowl but just didn’t, some people pray their entire lives to be able to go,” said another.

One person even criticized her choice to go to a party instead. “you’re too young for me bro! I can’t fathom wasting $4,000 tix to go party which you could do ANY OTHER night of the year,” they said.

This caused Tana to snap back on February 3, quote tweeting a now-deleted reply from someone that was angry at the YouTuber’s choice not to go to the NFL game.

“i gave up my spots to other ppl who wanted to go cause i’m sweet luv…don’t judge a book by its cover…no wasting here…sending light x,” she responded, revealing that she’d actually allowed others to attend in her place rather than “wasting” the tickets.

The clapback got over 9.5k likes, proving that all is forgiven in the Mongeau fanbase now that she’s cleared up the unsavory accusations made against her.

Tana continues to be one of the most influential personalities with millions of followers across her YouTube, Twitter, and Instagram accounts. She even won Content Creator of the Year at the 2019 Streamy Awards.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
