Dixie D’Amelio, Noah Beck, and Ryland Storms are facing criticism from fans for using what some have called a ‘disrespectful’ audio track in a recent TikTok.

Dixie and Ryland are members of the Hype House based in Los Angeles, while Noah is a part of Sway House, another creator house in Los Angeles whose members are often seen hanging out with members of the Hype House.

In the video, the trio was seen lip-syncing and dancing to the track “What that mouth do?” by BigKlit. Many viewers were offended by the lyrics, with one user commenting “This song is not only offensive to Christians but also offensive to many other religions.”

Although the video has since been deleted, it was reuploaded to Instagram ‘tea’ account TikTokRoom, where followers of the account were split between whether the song was offensive or not. One commenter said: “Y’all make a big deal about everything”, while another wrote, “It’s disrespectful but because it’s y’all faves y’all ain’t gonna say nothing.”

The same audio has already been used more than 23,000 times on TikTok, and by other popular TikTokkers including Thomas Petrou who runs the Hype House. Commenters on his video asked him to delete the video or apologize for the song choice.

Several people in the comments expressed that these TikTokkers should be more responsible as influencers. Dixie and other stars were criticized last week for being irresponsible as influencers by Tyler Oakley after they attended a large house party.

This isn’t the first time a member of the Hype House has been criticized for their choice of audio in a TikTok. More recently, Addison Rae was accused of appropriating LGBTQ culture after she chose to use a “Lesbian Anthem”, an unreleased song by American rapper ‘PPCOCAINE’, reportedly titled “For That Cash.”

Noah, Ryland, and Dixie are yet to address the criticism, though the TikTok has been deleted.

Noah Beck hits out at Instagram for taking down his racy photoshoot

Noah Beck is known for his chiseled abs and muscular physique, but the TikTok sensation has hit out at Instagram after some racy images proved a little too much for the platform.

Noah is a 19-year-old social media star who, after joining popular TikTok collective Sway House along with stars like Bryce Hall, found that his following skyrocketed, making him a very popular member of the community.

Noah Beck was captured by photographer Damon Baker this week, who has previously photographed his girlfriend Dixie D’Amelio, and other celebrities like Cole Sprouse, Ross Lynch, and Rami Malek.

The images of Noah Beck show him oiled up in nothing but a pair of black Calvin Klein boxers, and from some particularly revealing angles that have driven his fans crazy.

However, while the images have some fans asking for a cold shower, Instagram isn’t too happy with it. Baker addressed this in the caption of his post of the set of photos.

He wrote, “Trigger warning @noahbeck (Instagram keeps deleting this post for being offensive because art, as always, is oppressed!) please someone help me understand what is so offensive about a confident male body?! Free Art!”

Noah himself also called out Instagram in his story, adding “y’all soft over at Instagram… stop taking my stuff down. Like yes, I was kind of naked but like..not completely lol, I didn’t violate any guidelines.”

At the time of writing, Instagram’s rules around nudity say the following: “We allow sex-positive content and discussion, but we do not allow content that facilitates or coordinates sexual encounters between adults.”

Meanwhile, the images are being shared without limit over on Twitter, but with some mixed reactions. Some users are begging for the images to be removed from their timeline, some are spamming the search results with “Forget Noah Beck” and adding images of other attractive celebrities. That said, many, many others are clearly very much enjoying the eye candy.
