iDubbbz and Tana meet-up
On December 10, 2016, Mongeau tweeted at iDubbbzTV deriding him for his frequent use of the N-word in his videos. The tweet stated, “@Idubbbz so 3 million ppl subscribe to u and u openly say the n-word and retard???? kill yourself”. Mongeau further derided iDubbbz in her livestreams and other videos. In response, iDubbbz purchased a VIP ticket to Mongeau’s show in San Francisco, and, on January 21, 2017, attended said show. At the VIP meet-and-greet, iDubbbz posed for a picture with Mongeau and while the photo was being taken, iDubbbz said “Say nigg*r!”. This caused outrage from onlookers and Mongeau responded by storming out of the area, prompting security to ask iDubbbz to leave, which he did.
On February 6, 2017, iDubbbz released a video titled “Content Cop - Tana Mongeau ”, a part of his Content Cop series. In it, he defends his use of the N-Word and accuses Mongeau of hypocrisy by showing past clips of her saying the word too. He stated that his use of the word is not meant to offend as it is done in a comedic context, while he deemed Mongeau’s use of the word "mean-spirited". In the video, Carter also shows footage from the incident at Mongeau's show and criticizes her response to it. He also discusses the use of derogatory terms in a broader context, and the weight which society places on specific words in terms of their offensiveness.

Due to her not going to VidCon 2018 for issues that has been going on with the VidCon securities and the big YouTubers going there, Tana wanted to create her own type of VidCon called, TanaCon. TanaCon's opened schedule would be opened the same day VidCon would be opened. However, it was forced to Shut Down by the Fire Martials due to there being an excess of 4,000 people above the maximum site capacity of around 1,000 people.There was a video on Twitter showing the entire line of people going to TanaCon. When people were inside the "TanaCon building", there was a huge chant saying "We want Tana" repeatedly and "Refund" repeatedly.
