Teenagers are using mandatory mask policies as a way to illegally purchase booze in a new TikTok prank phenomenon.

With the drinking age being 21 in the United States and 19 in Canadian provinces, teenagers looking to acquire booze have found a solution, thanks to face coverings.

By dressing up as elderly grandmothers with the help of Halloween masks, plus the addition of standard medical masks, store employees can have a hard time distinguishing if the outfit is real.

Plus, it’s very unlikely that staff at a store would ask someone who appears to be a grandmother for their ID.

While some videos have since been taken down or privatized, the most popular clip highlighting this trend comes from user ‘claare__18,’ who showcases her friend dressed in a fully granny getup.

“Granny be looking a little different here!” she captioned along with some beer mug emojis.

In the clip, the friend wears stereotypical grandmother attire with a headscarf and sweater alongside the masks. After going to a 7-Eleven in the costume, she’s able to go and acquire alcohol.

It’s not just the elderly masks that are being used, either; even standard face masks are being used in combination with fake IDs to purchase alcohol.

In a “PSA” uploaded by aamandaward, the user explained that teens could use their fake IDS “as much as possible,” because if you wear a mask, people who check IDS can’t see their full face.

Obviously, this trend is quite dangerous – not to mention illegal – so it’s not advised that you try it out for yourself, as it could have some serious consequences.

TikTok stars Thomas Petrou and Bryce Hall have sparked quite the feud after Hall accused Petrou — co-founder of the Hype House — of stealing money from his own content creators.

It’s no secret that the Hype House and the Sway House aren’t on friendly terms, with the two getting into a fierce beef throughout this past year (remember that time the Sway boys drove to the Hype House to confront Chase Hudson?).

While Hall has confirmed that their feud with the Hype House is definitely real, it seems that he’s going “full send” on his distaste for the group by accusing co-founder Thomas Petrou of outright stealing money from the HH’s content creators.

During an interview with Tom Ward on October 8, Hall made some serious claims about Petrou’s business practices, stating that he’d “stolen” money from the TikTokers working underneath the content collective.

“I’ll say it — he steals money,” Hall stated. “He steals money from those kids. These kids are — I love a lot of people in the Hype House, but they are not the smartest people. …maybe not now, because I haven’t talked to them in four or five months, and maybe somebody said something to him, but he, at the beginning, was stealing money for sure.”

Hall’s claims didn’t go unnoticed; Petrou responded to the accusations shortly thereafter, denying having ever stolen money from those in the Hype House in a pointed Instagram reply on a tea page.

“That’s a complete lie,” he wrote. “I’ve never taken a percentage of anyone in the Hype House. Ask everyone who’s a part of it. The whole reason I started this was to help the people around me make sure they weren’t getting taken advantage of by their managers and agents.”

Thomas Petrou denies Bryce Hall's allegations of stealing money from Hype House creators.

This isn’t the first time Hall has struck out at Petrou in recent days, either; the Sway House TikToker also slammed Thomas’s spending habits, claiming that he “spends his money like an idiot” on pricey cars instead of saving up wisely.

For now, it doesn’t look like there’s any love lost between these two social media stars as things continue to escalate between two of TikTok’s biggest creators.
