Bryce Hall and Blake Gray , Tik Tok personalities have been facing criminal charges for hosting parties in the Hollywood Hills despite the city’s ban on large gatherings during the coronavirus pandemic. They held the party on august 14 on the occasion of Hall’s birthday.
These celebrities with millions of followers on Tik Tok also share the home and went on to host two parties less than a week apart, said The Los Angeles city attorney’s office who have filed misdemeanor charges against them.
Mike Feuer, City Attorney said during a news conference, “If you have a combined 19 million followers on TikTok in the middle of a public health crisis, you should be modelling great behaviour, best practices, for all of us, rather than brazenly violating the law and posting videos about it. It isn’t just the party house itself that’s affected. These individuals who attend your parties could leave and spread (the virus) to siblings, to parents, to grandparents, to coworkers, to others in the public.”
The Los Angeles police have reported that parties featured several hundred guests. The two internet stars have been violating the city’s pandemic health order and a party house ordinance. The penalties for violating these rules will include a year in jail and up to $2,000 in fines.
