Bryce Hall hits out at Thomas Petrou’s spending habits in new podcast

Although internet star Bryce Hall is known as the self-described “party animal” of TikTok, he’s no slouch when it comes to his finances — and he thinks that some names in the scene could stand to curb back their egregious spending.

When one thinks of Bryce Hall, a crash-course in finances for young people probably isn’t the first thing to come to mind. However, that’s exactly what the influencer is doing after releasing the first episode of his new podcast series.

Titled “Capital University,” Hall has partnered with investor Anthony “Pomp” Pompliano to bring financial education to his Gen Z viewers in a move that has completely upended critics’ expectations.

In their opening episode, Hall and Pomp discuss the ways in which social media influencers go about actually earning their cash — as well as how much certain names are making, right now.

To illustrate his point, Hall used the Hype House as an example — more specifically, co-founder Thomas Petrou, claiming the star makes around $100k a month from “occasional” brand deals and YouTube adsense, alone.

However, Hall isn’t a fan of Petrou’s spending habits (or the habits of other influencers), finding fault with how the Hype House founder blows his cash on expensive cars to keep up the pretense of looking rich.

“He, along with many other influencers, like to really prove that they’re making a s**t-ton of money,” he commented. “But when you spend it like an idiot — you’re buyin’ McLarens, Porsches, i8s, just cash — I look at these kids and I’m like, ‘Oh my god.’”

“They don’t understand that this social media, this poppin’ time that they’re in, isn’t gonna last forever,” he continued. “Right now, when you’re at the top, this is when you’re gonna be making the most money. You just gotta find a way to sustain it.”

Hall himself began his podcast after learning that harsh reality the hard way, claiming that he’d even gone broke and was hit with major tax expenses. Now, he’s helping other young people and fellow internet stars to avoid the potholes he’s already hit.

It’s a pleasant surprise for fans — and a welcome change in wake of Jake Paul’s own divisive “Financial Freedom” project.


Footage emerges of Bryce Hall in restaurant brawl over a vape

Footage has emerged online of TikTok star Bryce Hall involved in yet another restaurant brawl, just weeks after going viral for a street fight in West Hollywood.

On October 4, Bryce released footage of him in a street fight, and his fans and critics alike came together to call out his actions and explain why it wasn’t acceptable.

Now, barely two weeks later, Bryce finds himself in yet another brawl, but this time the video was leaked before he could share it himself, which he said he did in the first fight because he didn’t want media outlets “misrepresenting” it if they report it first.

Late on October 20, footage came out of Bryce involved in an altercation at a Mexican restaurant in Los Angeles — and the alleged reason behind it is very bizarre.

Bryce has found himself in a spot of bother once again.

As TMZ reports, you can see Bryce involved in the scrap, right in the thick of things, and according to them, it all kicked off because of a vape.

It’s illegal to vape at restaurants in LA, something Bryce and co. apparently didn’t care to hear when asked to stop, with Bryce allegedly blowing smoke in staff’s face when asked to stop. Then, according to TMZ, things came to a head when Bryce’s card was taken to make his payment after being asked to leave.

One source apparently said that Bryce and his friends jumped an employee, with the star himself throwing the first punch, while Bryce refutes those claims and says that a manager grabbed him and tried to drag him away, before kicking him.

In the original report, it’s also stated that one of the staff members involved suffered a broken hand, and named Bryce as his attacker in a police report that followed the ordeal.

Obviously, there are two sides to this story, but Bryce’s track record and reputation is working against him — and if the restaurant staff decide to press charges, we’re likely to find out the truth one way or another.
