#HappyBirthdayTanaMongeau trends after YouTuber slammed for past racist comments: 'Have a horrible day'
In the past, Tana has used racist slurs and made inappropriate comments about people of color, two of whom she has worked and been friends with
Television personality Tana Mongeau celebrates her birthday today. But the celebrations may not be of the regular kind. #HappyBirthdayTanaMongeau has been trending online but the posts hardly have anything to do with wishes or greetings. The internet users have been using the hashtag to expose herself as a racist.
In the past, Tana has used racist slurs and made inappropriate comments about people of color, two of whom she has worked and been friends with. She apologized deeply in a series of tweets but the damage has been done. Earlier this month, YouTuber Kahlen Barry released a video, in which he highlighted how harrowing his experience has been with Tana and her insensitive comments. He claimed both Tana and her managed subjected him to microaggressions on a regular basis.
After Barry's video, old tweets of Mongeau also resurfaced where she called Imari Stuart a "cotton picker" and told him to "go back to plantation." The said clip prompted viewers to dig up dirt on Tana. And during the investigation, the fans found out that she indeed has routinely made racist comments in the past. She had even used the N-word. "It's not even just about me," Barry said in his video and added: "As much as an apology would be nice, so many Black people watch her channel and she owes them at least to grow and do better."
Meanwhile, here's what fans have to say about Tana's inappropriate behavior. "#HappyBirthdayTanaMongeau racists aren’t cute have a horrible day," a user commented, while another shared: "This b***h racist and homophobic and micro aggressive. Her apology was “I’m sorry that you feel that way” that’s GASLIGHTING. F**k this bitch. It’s one thing if u genuinely change and grow but she still does this shit NOW #happybirthdaytanamongeau."
"Hey @tanamongeau ALL birthdays matter just gonna ignore your disgusting behavior forever? Your sad career is social media, so speak the f**k up!! @KahlenBarry
& @imari deserve so much better #HappyBirthdayTanaMongeau," a user tweeted, while another wrote: "Don’t forget that not only is she racist, she treats everyone around her like trash, lies about having ptsd, and homophobic."
Despite such a lengthy apology, everyone seems to be enraged by Tana's tendency to make racist comments and justify them. She once used the N-word and said she thought it meant "friend" or "homie."
