In the 2019 VMAs, pop-star Taylor Swift was roasted for her performance at the event. There were complaints about various things, from her choice of song to lip-syncing on her own song. Her fans and non-supporters had taken to Twitter to express their bitter opinion on Taylor’s performance at the VMAs.

2019 VMAs also saw Tana Mongeau getting roasted for not knowing in which state the award show was being hosted. The VMAs last year took place in Newark in New Jersey unlike in New York where it was usually held.

Tana's post on Twitter received a lot of hate. With Tana expressing her love for New York more than once previously and also because she was spotted very often there, everyone thought the celeb did not know the venue for 2019 VMAs. Many people roasted the star for her negligence on Twitter.
