Tana first caught flak for her Twitter post. "There's no way, I spoke to him last night,  there's no f--king way," she wrote. "He was so strong and so funny and so f--king talented ... the little things he would do to make me smile ... that voice... will echo in my head forever."

2. The private text message

Tana then took to her Insta account to post a screenshot of a private text conversation she allegedly had with Mac.

Malcolm James I loved you. I got the privilege of loving you for years, and then getting to know you and finding out you were even better than I dreamed. You made me feel something, you were sweet to me every second, you had this love for life and what you do that made me fall for you 10x harder... to feel like I was unraveling every part of your soul but have no idea the half of what you were going through."

7. The internet is tearing her apart

The internet was furious at Tana for insinuating that she and Mac had a relationship and taking to social media to draw attention to herself for it. One angry Twitter user said, "Did Tana really just try to announce her and Mac had some sort of fling...in the midst of his passing...what the f--k?" Another said, "I’m terribly sorry for the loss of Mac, but I’m so sick of influencers doing anything for clout. She should have more respect." Yet another said, “Don’t even think about making a YouTube video about this to get more clout. Stop tweeting for attention. If you really were upset you’d be silent. Grieving in your own time. Not on social media.”

8. Her apology

Tana apologized for her posts about Mac in a series of tweets this morning. The apology is lengthy and can be found here, but it starts out, "I just want to apologize to ANYONE that was upset by my post or took it the wrong way. bottom line. i loved malcolm so much & never would want any one to think my intentions were anything but true. he was truly the only thing bringing me happiness in such a depressed part of life."
