Cops crash TikTok Clubhouse FTB party and shut it down

TikTok collective Clubhouse FTB (For The Boys) have come under fire not just among fans, but with the law, after police came to shut down a party they held on October 9.

Content creation collective Clubhouse FTB – which is an all-male ‘sister’ version of TikTok collective, the Clubhouse, consists of four main people: Isaak Presley, Sebastian Topete, Christopher Romero, and Chase Keith.

Between them, they have 14.2 million followers on TikTok. Recently, new members such as model Welcome TJ (yes, his name is actually Welcome) joined the collective, and it appears he has decided to make his mark in the house by throwing a party for his birthday.

Instagram footage shows that there isn’t a lot of social distancing going on.

An Instagram story by influencer Malik Earnest shows a big crowd singing “Happy Birthday” to Welcome as he and the Clubhouse danced on the table.

The crowd appear to be very close together with no masks being worn.

Another one of Earnest’s Instagram stories then shows the police arriving at the property, dispersing partygoers and encouraging them to go home. He captioned the footage with “party’s over,” tagging Welcome’s Instagram handle.

It is unclear whether the police dispersed the party due to noise complaints, social distancing complaints or another reason.

Did the party break social distancing rules?

Detailing the preparations on his Instagram story, Welcome insisted to fans that this was “not a party” and that it would be a “closed event with close people.”

He also claimed that “temperatures would be checked on the door” and said that the gathering would “adhere to […] guidelines.”

This is despite, as satirical reporter DefNoodles pointed out, guidelines in California stating that no gatherings at all were permitted.

In light of the current global health crisis, fans didn’t react well to the Clubhouse’s partying.

One Twitter user criticized Welcome for claiming the event wasn’t a party: “Dude if it isn’t your immediate family and/or more than 10 people, it’s a party”.

Another user expressed similar sentiments, saying “the only way you can [adhere to guidelines] in California is by NOT HAVING THE PARTY.”

Meanwhile, over on Instagram, one user said in a comment, that got over 5,000 likes, “Are we surprised? No. Are we disappointed? Yes.”

Nobody from the Clubhouse has commented on the situation as of yet.

The joys of spooky season might be limited by a global health crisis, but it doesn’t stop TikTok from creating some incredible and utterly terrifying looks this Halloween.

From disturbingly realistic horror movie icons to genuinely bone-chilling transitions, we’re in awe of the efforts it took to create these amazing costumes. Here are the best looks from this year so far.

Don’t get bitten!

This extremely dedicated father had such a realistic “Walking Dead” style zombie costume that his kids were clearly terrified. The costume came with its own sound effects, and TikTok is invested. The reveal of this amazing costume has had 9 million views.

Jump-scare with a twist

Abby Roberts is well known on TikTok for impeccable makeup skills, and her Halloween looks have been off the charts – especially with her collaborations with Yungblud and Liam Payne. Not only is this zombie Nun look the stuff of nightmares, the transition is pretty slick, too.

Seen any red balloons?

This amazingly realistic version of Pennywise from Stephen King’s ‘IT’ is truly capturing people’s attention, garnering 10 million views on this video already. The teeth in this look alone are on another level.

Spooky skeletons

This person has an amazing full costume of Jack Skellington from Tim Burton’s ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas,’ and for some reason, this video of him dancing is kind of addictive to watch – so much so that it has had 22.7 million views.

Criminal pups

Pets are getting involved, too, and these three cute pups are breaking out of doggy jail in the spirit of Halloween, complete with stripy uniforms that say “I steal kisses” and a number plate that says “cr1me.”
