YouTube star and TikTok sensation Bryce Hall has become the unintended posterboy for quarantine partying — and while he’s promised to stop his wild ways, for the time being, he isn’t a fan of other influencers hitting out at him for doing the same thing.
Social distancing has been a major theme of 2020, but it seems that quite a few internet celebrities are eschewing health guidelines to live it up despite the potential risk.
Quite a few names have come under fire for both throwing and attending ravers during this time, including names like James Charles, Nikita Dragun, and Bryce Hall, who was even charged with breaking Los Angeles city ordinances for throwing massive house parties.
Faced with potential jail time and a hefty fine, Hall promised his fans that he would cease his partying habits until he gets the all clear from local authorities to do so — but it seems that other social media stars aren’t exactly taking the hint.

Hall hit out at these influencers during an interview with Entertainment Tonight, finding fault with their hoity-toity attitudes toward his situation despite attending parties, themselves.
“I fully regret the parties,” Hall said of the matter. “I didn’t expect that many people to come. The thing that bothers me is these ‘influencers’ that’ll call me out and say like, ‘Why are you partying? Wear a mask! Social distance!’ All this bulls**t, when they don’t even practice it, themselves. Practice what you preach.”
“They’re all liars,” he continued. “All these people are liars, and I hate it.”
Hall likewise reassured his viewers that “the party animal is tamed for a little bit,” further expounding on the promise he’d made to his fans during a vlog in early September.
While Hall appears to be dedicated to following health guidelines, still other internet stars are facing backlash for doing the opposite, including Tana Mongeau and Nikita Dragun, who was heckled by paparazzi asking her how she enjoyed the “illegal parties” she was going to.
Fans, for the most part, seem to be pleased with Hall’s response to the situation — even if it took involvement from the law to wisen up to the issue.
