For the last two years, Mongeau wasn’t made a “featured creator” at VidCon. (Featured creators have access to a backstage area so that fans don’t mob them roaming the halls.)
But Mongeau showed up to VidCon both years, drawing mobs of fans, and causing a safety issue. Both times, security kicked her out, and this year they told her she was banned for life.
In response to the ban, Mongeau decided to organize her own event, TanaCon.
