TikTok influencer Bryce Hall and the Sway House are under fire for hosting a huge 21st birthday party for Bryce, with the number of guests estimated at around one hundred. There was also controversy over the presence of strippers.

This isn’t the first time that large groups of influencers have been called out for hosting parties. Larri ‘Larray’ Merritt’s 22nd Hype House birthday party in July saw guests such as the likes of James Charles, Charli D’Amelio, and notably Bryce Hall.

Early YouTube star Tyler Oakley called them out publicly on Twitter, tagging many of the guests in his post, calling them “bad influences” and urging them to use their “huge platforms to encourage responsibility.”

The Sway House is believed to be behind the huge party.

The outrage over influencer parties was ramped up when videos began to emerge on August 14 of hoards of people gathered in Hall’s LA mansion to celebrate him turning 21.

One such clip shows Hall standing on a kitchen counter, speaking to the huge crowd. “This is about to get so crazy, I appreciate all of you guys for coming out tonight.”

The videos from the party, collected in an extensive Twitter thread by commentary YouTuber Def Noodles, show that the guests were in very close proximity to each other, both the guests that were outside as well as those on the inside.

This close proximity was heightened once strippers were brought in for Bryce. This has created tension within itself, as he and fellow TikTok star Addison Rae have been rumored to be an item for some time now.

Bryce Hall “forced” by friends?

Although not exclusive, many people have pointed out the moral grey area involved in hiring strippers. Some fans insist that Bryce was “forced to be a part of it” and that he tried to “walk away but his friends pushed him back.”

Others argue that he had “plenty of opportunities to get up and walk away” but chose not to as he was enjoying it too much.

Some fans think that Addison was referring to this situation when she tweeted “isn’t it weird how your heart actually feels things” and said she was “taking a break for the day.”

The party was eventually shut down by the LA police department at around 4am. When confronted by the Hollywood Fix the following day, Bryce dodged questions about the party. To the question “is Addison upset with you?” he simply replied, “stay safe.”

Whether or not there will be legal repercussions for the violation of recent guidelines remains to be seen, as the fallout from the party continues unfolding.


NELK Boys trolled Khabib and got Dana White drunk ahead of UFC 254

The NELK Boys were invited to Fight Island in Abu Dhabi ahead of UFC 254 and it didn’t take long before they had trolled Pay Per View headliner Khabib Nurmagomedov along with UFC President Dana White.

The NELK Boys are known for their antics so Dana White was well aware of what he was getting into by inviting them to Fight Island. Abu Dhabi served as host to a huge slate of UFC events throughout the course of September and October, closing out the latest stint with UFC 254.

The October 24 PPV made waves due to undefeated Nurmagomedov’s shock retirement after his 29th consecutive win. However, the NELK Boys made waves in their own way with a brand-new video.

Up to their usual antics, the crew played pranks on each other while mixing it up with UFC fighters. Outside of their shoey with Aussie heavyweight Tai Tuivasa, the NELK Boys trolled The Eagle and even got Dana White drunk.

In a rare interaction with Khabib prior to what would be his final fight, they pranked him by asking for oddly specific MMA advice. “What is the most important aspect of fighting for any beginner fighter to focus on?” Kyle Forgeard asked.

Before Khabib could even answer, the plot thickened. Forgeard joked that the reason behind his interest in MMA is to fight the BMF Champ Jorge Masvidal after he slept with his girlfriend. “How old are you?” Khabib responded, going along with the joke. 

Realizing that he’s too old to start training, he had another solution in mind. “I think you have to buy [a] dog.” With a dog by his side, that might be Forgeard’s only chance, according to Khabib.

Next on the itinerary was to get the UFC President completely wasted. While they downed a few shots at the very beginning of the day, the real party came later that night. “I’ve got weigh-ins at 11 AM tomorrow,” White joked before taking another shot.

“Our goal is for Dana to not make it to the weigh-ins,” Forgeard said. Ultimately, that didn’t quite come to fruition but it’s clear they got him rather drunk. “We did like eight or 12 [shots] right in a row.”

The weigh-ins went off without a hitch and so too did the PPV event the following day. It was a short-lived trip for the NELK Boys on Fight Island, though it was one that proved all too valuable for some content.

This particular video ended with a teaser of what’s to come for the content creating crew too; it appears as though a call with the United States President is in store, courtesy of Dana White.
