Influencers are at it again! Another party, without masks and social distancing happened this weekend. Sway House is a group of famous TikTokers that all live together in Los Angeles. There have been many instances where influencers are not following COVID-19 guidelines and this is another one.
It was TikToker Bryce Hall’s 21st birthday and there was a party with over 100 guests. All not wearing masks and really close to each other. This party was being posted everywhere. Guests were posting on their Snapchat and Instagram videos of them at the party.
Def Noodles is a Youtuber with a big following that uses his Twitter to talk about drama with influencers. He compiled everyone’s social media posts of the party and posted them in a Twitter thread. He started the thread by saying, “Bryce Hall and Sway House throw massive party in Hollywood Hills with over a hundred people. Party was broken by LAPD around 4 am.” And he tagged the Mayor of Los Angeles saying, “What are your thoughts?”
Allegedly, this is Sway House’s third party in four days. Before his birthday party, Bryce Hall posted on Instagram a video with a lot of cases of White Claw saying, “We might need more.”
The videos from the party are hard to watch. No one would know we were in a pandemic by seeing these videos. There is no one wearing masks. LAPD did crash the party at around 4 a.m. because the group was breaking guidelines. At the moment, we don’t know if any arrests were made.
This isn’t the only influencer party that happened recently. Dixie D’Amelio had a birthday party and even posted a vlog about it on her Youtube channel. She had family and friends over for dinner. In the whole vlog, there isn’t one mention of the pandemic and no one is wearing masks. The vlog even features Benjamin Kickz showing up at the D’amelio’s house to gift Dixie shoes – he shows up at their house without a mask after traveling around the US to find the gift and definitely without quarantining first.
A lot of people are responding to these parties and questioning why it isn’t ok for others to look up to people who are partying at this time. One tweet says, “I say everyone unfollows every single “influencer” that attended Bryce Hall’s birthday party. These selfish, ignorant, narcissistic pricks never deserved a platform in the first place. All they influence is that it’s okay to party during a PANDEMIC. Get a grip”
Another tweet says, “Imagine throwing a party in California with hundreds of people and no mask-wearing in the middle of a pandemic when thousands of doctors, nurses, and first responders are risking their lives every day to keep you safe because you’re an influencer and think you’re above everyone else.” What are your thoughts with these parties? And why is everyone posting pictures of them there?
