After tweeting footage of a violent scrap he appeared to be involved in, TikTok star Bryce Hall has caused outrage among many fans who claim he is a bad role model, calling his actions “embarrassing.”

While Bryce has a substantial following of over 14 million people on TikTok, his place in the limelight has certainly thrown him into many public controversies throughout his time as an influencer.

In particular he has been criticized by fans and other influencers alike for hosting and attending several regulation breaking parties, even after claiming that he “fully regrets” the incidents.

He has even been dubbed ‘the Jake Paul of TikTok,’ a label he seems to celebrate. The likeness between the two high profile stars’ is uncanny, and Bryce Hall’s polarizing behavior is reminiscent of Jake’s Team 10 days.

Bryce and Jake filmed a video together in which they determined whether he really is TikTok’s Jake Paul.

Bryce shocked his Twitter followers on October 5 when he uploaded a video that appeared to show him and several friends involved in a street fight, though who exactly was involved in each side of the scrap is difficult to ascertain from the video, taken at night.

Alongside the video, he wrote: “We don’t condone violence, but if you punch someone in front of us, we’ll have no choice but to defend ourselves.”

Speculation as to when and where the fight took place and who exactly involved is aplenty, but nothing has been confirmed, and Bryce has not identified which individual in the video he is.

It’s safe to say that the video caused a stir, with many viewers appalled that he would upload the video to share with his young follower base.

“Embarrassing, aren’t you supposed to be a role model?” one user said, another saying “He’s out here wanting to get cancelled again. Seriously when will you learn to not be problematic?”

While no details as to the context of the fight have been confirmed, some viewers were concerned that the video appeared to show several guys ganging up on one person. “OK defend yourself but this seems like about 6 guys on one? Defend yourself one on one.”

There were however several people who defended Bryce, suggesting that he is not under any obligation to refrain from self-defense because he’s an influencer. “Influencer or not he’s human, if you throw a punch at him or his friends, or whoever that isn’t at fault, he’s not gonna stare at you and apologize,” one commenter said.

Another suggested “okay before you all got off about role models etc.. Just remember you weren’t there and don’t know the full story..”

Despite many analyzing the video in an attempt to establish the context of the fight, no further information has been confirmed by Bryce.

Nessa Barrett has slammed TalentX manager Micheal Gruen in the third installment of Josh Richards and Dave Portnoy’s new podcast BFFs in which they talk about all things TikTok drama.

The first episode of the podcast sent fans into a frenzy after the Barstool Sports’ president claimed that Nessa Barrett had found her fame through dating Josh Richards. The host claimed he was “in the middle of a TikTok war” and fuelled drama by tweeting memes and jokes about the situation.

But for their third episode, they actually invited Nessa herself onto the show, and while there appeared to be no beef between Dave and the popular TikToker, it was revealed that the manager of TalentX Michael Gruen and Nessa are feuding.

Fans of Nessa will know that the pair don’t necessarily like each other. After the drama surrounding the first episode, Michael weighed in with his own opinion on an Instagram fan page for the star.

He wrote, “I must’ve missed the memo that Nessa – or anyone for that matter – deserves ‘the world’. The earth is inhabited by ~7B people…last I checked Nessa is just one of them (along with myself and everyone else).” Nessa did not publicly reply but she did unfollow him on Instagram.

It turns out that their beef runs a little deeper. After remaining quite held back with her answers for the first half of the podcast, Nessa suddenly had words to say once Micheal was mentioned by Dave.

(Topic starts at 27:00)

She said, “I do not like him. He’s rude. He hates me. He has it out for me. I think he’s jealous because he’s secretly in love with Josh which is no problem but yeah he has called me ugly to my face and in front of people”

Josh attempted to defend Michael, and said that the word “Ugly” wasn’t used, but instead that “he said my taste in women was not good.”

Nessa continued, “He has said like the beginning of quarantine that he wants to send me on a one-way ticket to Mexico and I’ve been sat there alone and I was 17 like he is just rude…I just don’t waste my energy on him I just don’t like him he’s a terrible person” She also added and emphasized that “he is a certified a**hole.”

Michael is yet to react to Nessa’s brutal takedown, but given his reputation, he is likely to respond very soon.
