Vegan YouTube Drama Update: Durianrider Won't Sit Back and Watch Tana Lie About Her Nose Job

“Look what happened to Michael Jackson. Michael Jackson. End of story,” Harley Johnstone, aka vegan YouTube proselyte Durianrider, instructed his 17-year-old is-she-or-isn’t-she-vegan nemesis Tana Mongeau in a new video.

Tana has just had a nose job for allegedly medical reasons, and Durianrider (whose better half, Freelee the Banana Girl, is also feuding with Tana; both Freelee and Durianrider are Australian and between 34 and 60 years of age) is having none of it. Also, he would like to show us his new Ferrari, and stare at us with a gaunt, unsettling expression.

“You got this bit trimmed right off,” our protagonist claims, pointing the mouse at his underage YouTube enemy’s former nose.


“In my opinion, your nose looked fine beforehand,” he says to his viewers, who may or may not include the person he is speaking to. “In my opinion, the surgeons who did that on a 17-year-old girl who’s got too much money, from YouTube, etcetera, I think that’s unethical. In my opinion. Not hatin’, I definitely don’t hate Tana.”

Tana claims in her video that she had chronic nosebleeds, and that the surgery was not for aesthetic reasons. Durianrider disputes this, alleging that Tana “got a nose job cause you were snorting too much cocaine and you burnt your nose out.” Harley also takes issue with the fact that Tana’s post was sponsored.

“You get kickbacks like a mofo, bro. Even your tripod—” [long pause for the browser to load] “You’ve even got an Amazon link for your tripod!”

Eventually, he rides his Ferrari away in slow motion.
