YouTuber Tana Mongeau Might Face A Class-Action Lawsuit For The Disaster That Was 'TanaCon'

Filed under: Legal MattersYouTubeFandom Frenzy

YouTube star Tana Mongeau is being accused of conning her fans into attending TanaCon, a convention promised to be a premiere digital influencer gathering that got shut down in less than 24 hours and is now being hailed as the "Fyre Festival of YouTube Conventions."

Fans are now discussing a class-action lawsuit against organizers of the event after ticket holders discovered TanaCon was nothing but one big con job.

It all started when Tana was banned from VidCon, ultimately because she was not dubbed a "major influencer" and was forced to walk the floor with other attendees. At the event, her presence was deemed a security hazard since security couldn't control her fans.

This inspired Tana to start her own con the same weekend as VidCon. She promised her dedicated fans that at TanaCon, they'd rub elbows with all the YouTube personalities "unwanted" from VidCon and would be treated to a swanky swag bag.

But once fans arrived at the Anaheim Marriott Suites, they were confused to find nothing but an open hallway and concert hall absent of any influencers or personalities. The "swag bag" included cheap accessories and a condom.

Even worse, thousands of other attendees left waiting for hours in the hot sun with no food, water, or shade. The event was shut down in less than a day before TanaCon was ultimately canceled — and people are pissed:

Not so special delivery…

A pizza festival in Bushwick, NY is being burnt to a crisp by ticket holders who say the event failed to deliver on its za supply and quality!

Shortly after the New York City Pizza Festival began at 3 p.m. on Saturday for "a day long celebration of the dough, cheese, tasty sauces and delicious toppings," upset attendees warned others the festival was a complete disappointment.

This does not look good for Ja Rule and Billy McFarland — but it may be of note to the FBI and several attorneys

Remember when former Fyre Festival employees came out hands up saying the organizers knew full well all the problems that would turn their paradise into a debacle?

Now there's proof, in the form of gloriously horrible email leaks.

In just one of thousands of emails obtained by Mic, a mid-level employee explains to McFarland and others (in an April 3 email with the subject heading "RED FLAG- BATHROOMS/ SHOWER SHIPPING") the shipping cost for all the upscale communal toilets and showers was higher than they had anticipated — $400K to be exact!

And Fyre fest higher ups were not happy with those numbers.

But one organizer had a solution of sorts. They had also just found out that Starr Catering had dropped out, leading to the joke that it was working itself out:
