Just days after she apologized for partying amid the pandemic, Tana Mongeau is in hot water once again.
Her original apology video, which she uploaded on September 4, immediately faced backlash as fans questioned how sincere she was. She apologized for past “racist actions” and for attending massive parties that violated social distancing guidelines, but clearly adhered to a strict script the whole time.
In the video, Mongeau called her past actions “careless and irresponsible,” and said she fully held herself “accountable for this and will be staying inside.”
“Actions like that don’t deserve a platform and I fully apologize,” she said.
On September 12, though, various social media accounts began sharing photos of Mongeau — some of which she uploaded herself — seemingly attending a party for influencer Alexa Adamas.
Critics slammed Mongeau for her apparently hypocritical actions.
“We been knew. Anyone who still believes her should definitely get a reality check. She apologizes to take the heat off of her, she doesn’t believe a word out of her own mouth or know how to take actual accountability for her own actions,” one user wrote on Twitter.
“Deplatform Tana. Like she says herself, she doesn’t deserve it, so give her what she asks for,” another said.
Influencer partying has become a growing problem amid the pandemic, most notably when hundreds gathered to celebrate Bryce Hall’s 21st birthday in August.
The outrage was so severe that the L.A. mayor got involved and called for the power to be shut off at any home hosting massive parties — including Hall’s personal residence.
