Bryce Hall & Sway House roasted in viral TikTok for partying & power cut

Bryce Hall and the Sway House boys have been throwing huge parties in violation of California regulations. Now, Los Angeles Mayor, Eric Garcetti, has disconnected their utilities and TikTok star, Toborowitz, has hilariously roasted the nonchalant partiers. 

Sway House hosted a massive birthday party for Hall’s 21st birthday, the latest in a series of influencer-hosted shindigs that have been exposed on social media for brazenly defying Los Angeleno government mandates. Following this one, L.A.’s Mayor confirmed that he had shut down utilities “at a house in the Hollywood Hills.” 

That utility shutdown was later confirmed to be Sway House and Toborowitz has followed up by verbally shutting down Bryce and Co. in a surprisingly calm roast.

And he, crediting Bob Ross for inspiration, referenced the governmental action to start the video off: “I know your WiFi’s down, so I thought I’d leave you a message: Happy 21st birthday, man. I saw you threw a little party and I just wanted to say I’m a little disappointed.”

Hall is joined by a variety of male influencers in Sway House, including, but not limited to, Anthony ‘luvanthony’ Reeves, Quinton Griggs, Kio Cyr, Josh Richards, Griffin Johnson, and Blake Gray. Or, as Toborowitz calls a few of them, “Skinny Bryce, Music Bryce, Slightly-More-Handsome Bryce.”

The basis of his criticism of these influencers is relatively simple, aside from tossing in digs like referring to the group as “Sway boy Bryce Hall clones,” Toborowitz makes the crux of his issue with the influencer house very clear: “Throwing massive parties every weekend probably isn’t the best idea right now.”

This all comes in the wake of Hall’s birthday festivities, in which social media quickly reacted to videos showing the open flaunting of social distancing mandates and little to no face masks in the midst of an 100-plus person celebration.

In response to all of the controversy, Toborowitz’s video comes across with a more concerned, familial energy to it. Although he most certainly squeezes in some definite roasts despite the chilled out cinematography and tone.

But at the end, he makes his position very clear to influencers like Hall and their fans: “If you’re a fan of these influencers and you see them going to parties, just know that they have a small brain. And you shouldn’t do what they do, because you’re smart, and they’re not. Thank you for your time.”

It looks like cuffing season is well underway for on-off TikTok couple Josh Richards and Nessa Barrett, as the former shared a series of close snaps of the two stars in each other’s arms ahead of a Halloween event.

For the ex-couple, things have been awkward, to say the least, after they broke up under a cloud of speculation and cheating rumors. Not only was there speculation that Richards was using Tinder, but there were also rumors that Barrett had kissed Hype House’s Chase Hudson shortly after his own breakup with TikTok starlet Charli D’Amelio.

However, in recent weeks, it seems like Barrett has made an effort to make amends with Richards, as she admitted earlier this month in an interview that her highly controversial kiss with Hudson was a “terrible mistake”.

Since then, it seems that the two have let bygones be bygones, with Richards sharing a few pretty romantic snaps of the two all dressed up for Halloween. Coyly mentioning that Barrett had done his Halloween makeup, he uploaded a series of pictures of the two arm in arm, with one especially intimate photo showing him hugging her from behind.

Cozy photos on Josh Richards’ Instagram account has caused fans and influencers alike to speculate that they’ve reconciled.

Naturally, this led to excited fans going into overdrive. While several rejoiced at the return of “Jessa”, one Instagram user joked in a comment that got over 8,000 likes: “So are y’all getting back together or what?”

And it wasn’t just fans who had something to say about the snap. TikTok royalty Addison Rae mysteriously commented that she “love[s]” the photo, while Sway House’s Nick Bean said what everyone is thinking: “Y’all confuse me but it’s ok”.

What happened between Josh Richards and Nessa Barrett?

After months of speculation, Josh Richards and Nessa Barrett announced their relationship in October 2019. They met on TikTok (naturally) and posted a lot of adorable content together before calling it quits seven months later in June 2020.

Richards and Barrett announced their breakup in a bittersweet YouTube video in June.

Although rumors around the time of their breakup suggested that Richards had cheated on Barrett, the two put up a united front in a YouTube video entitled ‘We Broke Up’, where they blamed the pressures of being in the public eye combined with their relationship moving too quickly for its eventual breakdown.

“We were in a very serious relationship but we weren’t ready for as serious as it was,” Richards said at the time. “We realized that we needed to mature and we needed to grow as people. I personally have never seen two people love each other and care for each other as much as Josh and me. We just had a lot of growing to do still.”

“I just really want to stress the fact that neither of us mistreated each other in the relationship,” Barrett added.

The ex-couple have seemingly grown closer in recent weeks, with Barrett even featuring in some of Richards’ YouTube videos.

However, it didn’t take long for the breakup to turn sour after Chase Hudson admitted to kissing Nessa Barrett shortly after his own breakup with Charli D’Amelio in July.

Luckily, it seems like the two social media superstars have put all that drama behind them and, if nothing else, are at least close friends again.
