Nessa Barrett asks obsessive fans for “privacy” when out in public

TikTok star Nessa Barrett has taken to Twitter to request some privacy from prying fans after finding them constantly accosting her during meals out.

With a 12-million strong TikTok following and a growing music career, Nessa Barrett is one of the hottest young stars in LA right now. However, as many such stars can attest to, the price of fame means that privacy is few and far in between.

Only recently, fellow TikToker Jaden Hossler found himself being “followed” by celebrity photographer Kevin Wong in his car, while Barrett herself had to publicly plead for privacy after reporters photographed her crying during a meal earlier this year.

Barret was frustrated after her November 14 meal at Saddle Ranch with on-off boyfriend Josh Richards and fellow influencers Mads Lewis and Jaden Hossler was interrupted by fans coming up to her table.

Fans had a mixed response to Barrett’s request. Some claimed that being approached by followers was an inevitable aspect of Barrett’s career, with one Twitter user saying, “If you have followers, it’s going to happen. They don’t know if they will ever see you again. Respect their needs.”

Similarly, another Twitter fan said, “I’m sorry but can’t you order food or cook at home because since your influencer obviously people are gonna come up to you. If I saw you, I would love to meet you.”

Others were more sympathetic to Barrett’s request: “Well, regardless of influence, basic decency and manners aren’t to be ignored. She deserves the respect anyone else would ask for. She breathes and bleeds to same way we do so, it’s typical that she’d want to eat out for dinner just as any normal person would.”

Barrett said in a Tweet to fans that while she is happy to speak to them when she is leaving the venue, she wanted to be left in peace when she was having her meal.

Over on Instagram, fans were similarly empathetic to Barrett’s situation: “I mean, she is right. At dinner she is trying to eat and spend time with her friends –  just talk to her when she is leaving the place.”

At the end of the day, there is no real right answer; while leaving celebrity figures alone in public is the decent thing to do, it’s also hard to expect everyone to abide by that, especially considering that most of these fan-bases are generally younger.

That said, now that she has cleared things up on Twitter, Nessa Barrett will hopefully be able to have more privacy when out in public in the future.


Bryce Hall puts Quen Blackwell on blast after Griffin Johnson TikTok drama

Following on from Quen Blackwell and Griffin Johnson’s social media clash, Bryce Hall has now jumped into the mix and lashed back at the original post that kickstarted the feud.

If you’re not up to speed on the latest TikTok kerfuffle, don’t stress. Here’s a quick refresher. Two days ago social media celeb Quen Blackwell reacted to a TikTok post featuring Bryce Hall and Addison Rae.

Their relationship has been hot and cold throughout most of the year. Blackwell took the opportunity to joke about the on-again, off-again couple, yelling “no” at the top of lungs in her own post. While Johnson was the first to take issue with her comedic reaction, Hall has now fired back as well.

Rather than calling her out on social media, however, Hall allegedly got in touch and hashed it out directly. It’s clear that things didn’t go down all too well between the pair as he’s since gone on to expose their private conversation.

“So I confronted her and talked about it,” he said. As it turns out, Blackwell was forthcoming with her intentions. “I only do this for likes and being relatable,” she explained, according to Hall.

“I get it, you’re just doing it for numbers. It had like 1.5 million likes, I get it,” Hall assured. As social media personalities, both have their own audiences and both create content to generate engagement. While that TikTok may have struck a nerve at first, it seemed as though they were able to get on the same page in their chat.

That mutual respect didn’t stand for all too long though. Blackwell claimed she wouldn’t do it again, though that wasn’t the case as she touched on the subject 24 hours later before deleting her videos. “It’s so fake,” Hall said in response.

“Now that she’s deleted the videos, we’re friends again. We’re gonna be like the rest of these social media people and just act as though nothing happens behind the scenes.”

Clearly not too pleased with how the drama unfolded, Hall can at least respect that Blackwell deleted her latest videos. At the time of writing, this seems to be the end of the controversy. Though it could all kick off once more if Blackwell goes back on her word yet again.

We’ll be sure to keep you updated if the latest TikTok drama continues to explode across social media.
