The Huffington Post has decided to cause trouble by inviting several Viners and YouTubers to sit at their table during the 2015 White House Correspondents’ Dinner – including formerly bitter rivals Tyler Oakley and Nash Grier.

Update: See their red carpet arrival photos.

TMZ and fans credit social justice warrior Tyler Oakley as being single-handedly responsible for kick-starting the massive international media witch-hunt of Nash Grier, by drawing attention to Nash’s old “gays have HIV” video.

Although the duo act friendly on social media – it’s hard to be too friendly when you almost ended somebody’s career.

Tyler Oakley Versus Nash Grier: What Happened?

Tyler Oakley was instrumental in bringing awareness to the following potentially career-destroying video, where Nash Grier shouts a homophobic slur during a HIV PSA.

Tyler made sure to tweet the controversial Vine to his followers, multiple times.

Extremely dangerous.

After the accusations caught fire on social media, they were then reported by a horde of media outlets worldwide.

Next level!

Eventually, it all ended in a civil parting-of-ways, when Nash Grier publicly apologized – and Tyler accepted it.

Nash says sorry.

Tyler Oakley has also had prior e-fights with some other popular Viners over LGBT-related topics – including Cameron Dallas and Taylor Caniff.
