Multiple members of TikTok’s Hype House are begging their fans to stop lingering outside their new digs in Los Angeles.

Popular TikTok star Nick Austin posted to his Instagram story on Sunday, June 14 asking fans to respect their privacy. He wrote: “Hey everyone, we all love and appreciate all the endless support you all give us, but it would be really amazing if you and your parents could stop coming to our house.

“We moved because this was such a problem at our old house. We even had our property broken into multiple times. Please please please don’t show up to our home uninvited.”

This comes after some girls and their mom broke into the Hype House’s former mansion and filmed TikToks in the most recognizable rooms. The group tried on members’ clothes and stole items that still belonged to them.

Thomas Petrou, one of the founders of the creators’ house, also posted the same statement to his Instagram story and included footage of cars and fans outside of the house with the caption ‘Go home please.’

In a live TikTok, Bryce Hall complained that having fans show up to their house was uncomfortable. He said: “… coming to my house, where I live. It’s kind of excessive, and like every 15 minutes. I can’t go upstairs because I’m afraid of someone seeing me with my pants off.” He also tweeted “RESPECT PEOPLE’S PRIVACY.”

In another video, Tony Lopez lamented that: “I am getting super f***ing frustrated with the amount of f***ing people that wait outside my house at 10 in the morning…I don’t want to be on camera I just woke up.”

Tony also tweeted: “Don’t come around and use mfs for some views. Go home lol” and “To some fans and people who keep showing up to the hype house. Can you please stop and respect the little bit of privacy we have. Thank you.”

Close friend of the Hype House, James Charles, has also experienced fans showing up uninvited. James commented: “Show up again please so I can call the police” on a TikTok where fans drove past his house.

It looks like fans won’t be going away any time soon.


PewDiePie hits out at company over KSI Meme Review copyright claim

Popular YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg was stunned after a company copyright claimed his Meme Review with JJ ‘KSI’ Olatunji. The Swede lost all the revenue for the upload due to their awful performance of “My Heart Will Go On” from Titanic. 

On November 22, PewDiePie teamed up with fellow YouTube star KSI for an epic Meme Review. The duo tackled everything from British culture to Olatunji’s boxing match with Logan Paul.

Kjellberg later revealed on Instagram that the popular video had been copyright claimed by a company. The personality called the move “bulls**t” after the corporation took all the revenue over their Titanic joke.

The YouTubers’ awful performance of My Heart Will Go On got the video claimed for copyright.

PewDiePie & KSI’s Meme Review copyright claimed

PewDiePie’s Meme Review with KSI was a major hit on the platform, pulling in over 7.3 million views in just a few days. Fans of both YouTube creators were treated to a hilarious collaboration. However, the duo’s “attempt” to perform My Heart Will Go On on a flute and alpine horn caused the video to get claimed.

Kjellberg revealed the issue on his Instagram story on November 25. “So I got a claim on my KSI video. At the end, we played My Heart Will Go On,” he said, before playing a clip of their awful performance to demonstrate how absurd the claim was. “It’s too similar!” he joked.

It turns out the YouTuber had appealed the claim, but was denied. “So I appealed it, because its bulls**t why, and they rejected it! This is actually infringing on copyright according to this company!” he exclaimed, before breaking into laughter.

The 31-year-old explained that the company was now going to get 100% of the money made off the popular upload. “So all the revenue now goes to this company for the entire video. Like, what? Yeah, I just thought it was bulls**t, I don’t even know.”

The whole scenario is made all the more ridiculous when you consider that the Titanic joke was only a few seconds in a 26 minute upload. The fact that the company now gets to own the entire video is a good example how YouTube’s content ID system can sometimes be flawed.
