Social media personality Tana Mongeau is in hot water after she uploaded pictures of her at a party, despite an apology for similar actions earlier in July where she claimed that it was a “careless and irresponsible action.”

Influencer parties have been a huge topic of conversation in recent months, with social media stars flocking to large gatherings and breaking regulations, all while uploading it to the internet for the world to see.

One of the more highly criticized parties was Bryce Hall’s 21st birthday, where over a hundred influencers gathered in the Sway House in close proximity. The outrage was so significant that the LA mayor got involved, and shut off the electricity at Bryce Hall’s personal residence as a punishment for his recklessness.

Tana Mongeau was criticized for releasing an apology video and quickly removing it.

Tana had been called out online in late July for similar rule-breaking parties, with influencers such as Tyler Oakley imploring her and other influencers to take responsibility for their actions.

She quickly issued an apology in which she called partying in this current time “careless and irresponsible.” She also said “I fully hold myself accountable for this and will be staying inside. Actions like that don’t deserve a platform and I want to fully apologize and be better than this.”

While some fans may have been hopeful that she’d seen the error of her ways, little over a month later on September 12 she began uploading pictures onto social media that showed she was at a party for influencer Alexa Adams.

One Twitter user said “she doesn’t believe a word out of her own mouth or know how to take actual accountability for her own actions.”

Another said “deplatform Tana. Like she says herself, she doesn’t deserve it so give her what she asks for” commenting on the reversal of her original apology. She has yet to address the backlash.

While the vast majority of people seemed to be frustrated with Tana, there were also some that supported her.

Tana Mongeau is an influencer who has over 5 million subscribers on YouTube. While her outgoing personality and don’t-care attitude has been instrumental to her success, it has also been detrimental to her career, and landed her in several controversies.

UPDATE (October 13, 7PM PT): Mere hours after Elon Musk confirmed that his Overwatch main was Torbjorn, the Overwatch developers released a video showcasing a newly buffed version of the Damage hero, per his request.

Elon Musk asked for a buff to Torb’s turret and that’s exactly what he got. In the same day that his main hero was made public, the Overwatch team fulfilled his requests and gave Torb one of his biggest buffs to date in a hilarious bite-sized clip.

The video shows Torb’s deployable turrets soaring off the ground. Three of them remained floating in the sky all at once, blasting down any foe that dared to step out on the moon.

It’s no secret that tech billionaire Elon Musk plays video games, but on October 13, he shocked the internet when he revealed his Overwatch main and how he would buff the hero.

After making a rather random tweet about the “The Illuminaughty” – a clever play on words, YouTuber twomad asked the 49-year-old if he mains Torbjorn in Overwatch.

Regardless of how the weird topic got started, Elon replied saying “um… yes” confirming he does in fact play Blizzard’s hero-based FPS and mains the Swedish engineer.

The unlikely response earned Musk a whopping 26,000 likes. For much of Overwatch’s lifespan, Torb was considered a bit of a joke or throw pick who offered very little benefit on attack.

However, after a major rework, the DPS has grown increasingly stronger and is actually one of the most viable heroes in the game at all levels right now.

Sadly, Musk didn’t state how long he had been playing Overwatch or Torbjorn for that matter, so it’s possible that he had only played when the hero wasn’t as good or only after the big rework happened.

Even the official Overwatch Twitter account decided to get in on the fun and replied to Musk with a picture of a giant Torbjorn turret on Mars.

“We’ve been thinking about this for a while,” they captioned the humorous picture. “Call us.”

Furthermore, Musk went on to explain how he would buff Torbjorn and the ideas were interesting to say the least. “Please buff Torb’s turret!” he exclaimed. “Or maybe 2 weak turrets to allow more strategic degrees of freedom.”

It was certainly an interesting reply and a sign that we could be looking at one of the most ambitious crossovers in history if Overwatch takes Elon up on his idea.

Though it’s unlikely that we’ll see Musk’s ideas make it to the game, but there’s always the Experimental Mode, so it’s possible Elon could end up getting his wish.

Who knows – maybe next time you’re in a game and a player won’t swap off Torb, it may be Elon Musk of all people.
