TikTok stars, Blake Gray and Bryce Hall face charges up to $2,000 and one year in jail for throwing parties in their shared mansion in LA, violating the “Safer LA” emergency order during the pandemic. They were warned repeatedly the first time they threw a party after getting many complaints on noise levels and blocked off driveways due to the parked cars, but they still continued to host more. This was shut down after Bryce Hall’s 21st birthday party, with a few hundred people in the so-called Sway House, were caught partying without wearing masks. The LA Mayor Eric Garcetti decided to shut off their power and water supply to the house for violating the order and receiving many complaints from their neighbors. Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer filed a complaint as well.
“If you have a combined 19 million followers on TikTok during this health crisis, you should be modeling good behavior — not brazenly violating the law and posting videos about it, as we allege,” Feuer said in a statement.
However, it is not known when exactly the consequences will be put into action since the Sway House members, including Hall and Gray, are still posting TikToks in their home regularly and ignoring the hate comments regarding their power and possible jail time.
