Tana Mongeau did a “storytime vlog” again and Twitter is losing it
Tana Mongeau is back in the storytime saddle and her fans couldn’t be more thrilled. The young internet personality released a new entry in her unofficial series of YouTube “storytime” videos and, in classic Mongeau fashion, prompted all sorts of reactions from her Twitter followers.
The new video, intriguingly titled “I CAUGHT MY BESTFRIEND HOOKING UP WITH MY MAN: a storytime/rant/scandal”, was posted on December 7th and has already amassed over a million views in just a few days – par for the course when it comes to Tana Mongeau’s channel. The vlog detailed a story of betrayal & heartbreak in that very specific Mongeau way: with lots of digressions & aggressive introspection.
With “bestfriends” like these . . .
The lurid new Tana Mongeau tale that set Twitter on fire stars three players: Mindy, Jeff, and Mongeau herself. Mindy & Jeff are pseudonyms, their real names changed by Tana Mongeau in order to protect their reputations (and avoid getting in trouble herself – defamation is a thing, kids!). Mindy was the so-called “bestfriend” and Josh was, you guessed it, Mongeau’s “man”.
As the story goes, Tana Mongeau had a relationship with Josh but noticed Mindy was paying a little too much attention to him. Fast-forward to a fateful evening where Mongeau caught both of them getting down & dirty in her own house (in her own movie room!). The betrayal caused the end of a relationship & friendship but gave birth to a popular video for Twitter to go ga-ga for, so you could say it all worked out.
The thirty-five-minute-long video covered more than just the sordid going-ons between Mindy & Josh. Tana Mongeau also took time to talk about her experience being the kind of woman musicians write songs about after a break-up. Once again, Mongeau avoided dropping real names and instead simply alluded to her breakup with a rapper. A mean, bitter rapper who later released a hateful song about her.
You can always count on Twitter users to provide a wide range of enthusiastic responses, especially if you’re a personality like Tana Mongeau. Behold a small sample of tweets prompted by Mongeau’s most recent storytime post.

For many people, a new Tana Mongeau storytime video was like finding an oasis in the vast desert that is the year 2020. It’s been too long since her last one, clearly.

It’s easy to understand Tana Mongeau’s YouTube’s metrics when you realize she is, indeed, the highlight of many people’s days.
IN UR THEATER BITCH 🤮 I could nevrrr

Bad, bad Mindy. You just don’t do that to people and you most definitely don’t do that to someone as beloved as Tana Mongeau. Also, come on, the movie room? So tacky.
Absolutely fucking HATE that people are like this bc you are so fucking great, I’d literally fucking learn to be a lawyer so you can expose these bitches and be free💕💕✨✨👏🏻👏🏻

Tana Mongeau’s fans are willing to put themselves through years of law school studies just to help her exact revenge on her enemies. That’s dedication.
No me pausing half way to investigate who is who lmfao

Sleuthing – part one
It didn’t take long for Tana Mongeau’s Twitter fans to figure out who the rapper in the story is. Some were so eager to have the full context for the story, they couldn’t even finish the storytime video the first time around.
Modsun is the ex who wrote the song she’s talking about
— Daniel 🌙 (@danieldknapp) December 8, 2020
While Mongeau has neither confirmed nor denied it, everybody’s pretty certain the ex she refers to in the video is rapper Mod Sun and the song written about her is “Karma”.
Lots of deleted responses to your video. pic.twitter.com/pyTiA1DWkT

Sleuthing – part two
Once again, no confirmation from Tana Mongeau, but Twitter quickly Veronica-Mars’d its way through her online interactions and reached some conclusions. Apparently, “Mindy” is TikToker Brooke Schofield while “Jeff” is Hellstar Studios’ Josh Grekin.
instagrams of the ppl hehehe
MINDY = @ brookeschofield
JEFF = @ joshgrekin
EX = @ modsun

Wonder how many followers Mod Sun, Grekin, and Schofield gained thanks to this bit of viral outrage? They can thank Tana Mongeau and her fans.
Worst week of your life how don’t you have like $3 million from onlyfans jeez life is so difficult

Not everybody on Twitter was entirely sympathetic with Tana Mongeau’s “worst week” video. Some people just have a hard time feeling truly sorry for celebrities, whatcha gonna do?
I understand and validate your feelings as important because they are your feelings, so in your mind and heart they are so important. I lose clients from my job as an adult daycare every single day. Today the count was 5. 5 people i have seen every day for over a year. Can't work

2020 is a particularly competitive year when it comes to stories about having a truly terrible time. Tana Mongeau must have known this but that doesn’t mean she shouldn’t share her pain anyway.
anyway…you said you’re taking applications?
— kealiʻi (@kealiilucien) December 8, 2020
Of course, because it’s Twitter, some read between the lines and realized Tana Mongeau is single again. Have some class, guys.
How do I fill out an application?
— kanwarghuman (@kanwarghuman) December 8, 2020
Honestly, if there’s ever an official application, we are sure there’ll be a link on her profile. Tana Mongeau is resourceful like that.
We might be seeing more storytime videos from Tana Mongeau soon, as she claims to be back for good on her YouTube channel. Time, and Twitter, will tell. Are you a fan? Let us know in the comments!
