Tana Mongeau under fire for excessive photoshop edits

YouTube star Tana Mongeau walked the red carpet at the 2019 Peoples’ Choice Awards on November 10 – but some fans aren’t so sure it’s actually her in certain photos of the event.

More specifically, critics are calling out the MTV starlet for extreme photoshopping, as seen in an Instagram photo she posted on November 12.

While other photos taken at the Awards show the star as she normally looks, this photo shows a dramatically slimmer jawline, pointed chin, and bigger lips and eyes for Mongeau – a fact that fans were quick to point out.

“I love her, but she should be showing how it’s okay to be yourself,” one Instagram commenter wrote.

“Your wax figure looks good here,” another fan jabbed.

Fans weren’t impressed with Mongeau’s seemingly extreme photoshop edits.

“Um wtf, why did you photoshop and facetune this pic?” a fan asked of another photo of the star. “You looked different in the original one.”

While Mongeau has yet to respond to the backlash, this wouldn’t be the first time she’s come under fire for extreme photoshop: in fact, the internet star was at the center of similar controversy in late January, after fans noticed significant differences in a photo she posted on the beach vs a video taken at the same locale.

The YouTuber was even called out by her ex-girlfriend, former Disney star Bella Thorne, who mentioned Mongeau during a rant on the widespread trend of editing one’s photos for likes.

“…with Instagram, they should really snap-down – sorry Tana, on FaceTune – and Photoshop,” Thorne said on an episode of Logan Paul’s “imPaulsive” podcast.

Mongeau took the jab in stride, giving a good-natured laugh from where she sat in the recording studio in spite of Thorne’s pointed comment.

However, it doesn’t look like the backlash surrounding her latest photoshop scandal is dying down anytime soon. With both the Awards and KSI vs Logan Paul 2 in the books, the YouTuber claims that she’s looking forward to rest and respite with her new hubby for the holiday season.


Asmongold defends Forsen after learning the real reason for Twitch ban

Popular Twitch star ‘Asmongold’ went to bat for fellow streamer Sebastian ‘Forsen’ Fors after the Swede was banned from the platform on November 26.

At first, no one knew the real reason for Forsen’s ban, with some thinking it may have been DMCA-related. However, viewers soon discovered that for a brief moment in a recent broadcast he showed a gif of a horse in a very inappropriate scene.

Despite this, Asmongold decided to stick up for Forsen during his own broadcast and call out Twitch for banning him due to an honest mistake.

“How the f**k is that going to be TOS? If…I don’t understand. You’ve got other people and they’re going around showing Animal Planet,” he explained. “Like you see literal animals killing each other, but you see a horse’s d**k?”

To this, Asmongold makes an interesting point. There are streams on Twitch that document animals in the wild and they can get into some rather freaky situations that, while natural, aren’t exactly the kind of thing you’d show your boss.

“Listen, horses don’t wear clothes, you know that?” the streamer sarcastically stated. “So, if you look at a horse, you’re going to see their d**k. Like, that’s all there is to it. It’s weird, man.”

However, right after making this argument, the streamer learned that it wasn’t just the horse that got Forsen banned, but the girl who was in the gif with the animal that changed the whole conversation. Briefly, anyway.

“Okay, that’s a little bit different,” he confessed. “It’s a little bit more than what I thought it was.”

Despite this, Asmongold still defended Forsen for the mistake of showing the gif. “I don’t think it’s really that big of a deal. You show that for like a second, right? Cause it’s an accident.”

According to the popular World of Warcraft player, one second of footage shouldn’t determine a whole Twitch career. “That seems stupid to me,” he added. “But you know, here we are.”

Unfortunately for Forsen, the streamer says this time, his ban is indefinite and it’s unclear when, if ever, he will be unbanned.

Hopefully, with Asmongold speaking out, Twitch can agree to let this incident slide and let Fors back on the platform so he can stream again.
