Noah Beck wants Bryce Hall to apologize to Dixie D’Amelio for the “disrespectful” stripper prank he played on them and insisted he wasn’t in on it.

Bryce Hall is known for playing pranks from time to time. He loves putting his friends on the spot in bizarre and awkward situations and recording their reactions on his YouTube channel. 

However, Noah Beck didn’t expect he would become the butt of the joke. Bryce blindfolded him and made him listen to loud music. Noah thought it was going to play out like a classic Fear Factor episode. But instead, he found himself swarmed by dancing strippers. 

While it was happening, Bryce video-called Dixie D’Amelio to show her what was happening and filmed her reaction. However, she wasn’t amused and assumed the worst, then hung up. It didn’t sit well with the D’Amelio family. Even her mom slammed him for it.

Bryce realized he took it too far. He contacted her and confirmed it was all his idea. He even explained Noah had no idea what was happening and was as much a victim of the prank as she was. But she didn’t seem convinced, and fans feared the situation created unnecessary tension. 

Paparazzi approached Noah and asked him about it. “Bryce knows he kind of stepped over the line,” he said. “It was a bit disrespectful, and he apologized to me. But he shouldn’t be apologizing to me. He should be apologizing to Dixie. But he knows. There’s really not much more to it.”

“I had no idea what it was,” he added. “I thought it was going to be a cute little animal… or some kind of scary animal. I didn’t think it was going to be strippers. But it is what it is. Some people were like, ‘Oh, he definitely knew.’ But I would not let that happen.”

The relevant part of the video starts at 0:40.

In other words, he doubled down on claims that he had no idea what to expect in the prank. Most fans believe him and feel like he got caught up in a bad situation.

However, some are still convinced he knew what was happening and changed his tone after all the backlash.

The key takeaway, though, is there seems to be no hard feelings between them. Noah and Bryce appear to be on good terms. But it might take Dixie a little longer to forgive and forget.

Sway House member and social media star Josh Richards has partnered up with actor and producer Mark Wahlberg to kick off his very own Gen Z-centric media production company.

Josh Richards is no newbie when it comes to content creation and amassing a large audience; the social media star has garnered over 2.4 million subscribers on YouTube alone, scoring another 24 million followers on his primary platform, TikTok.

However, it seems that the personality behind the smartphone screen is transitioning to broader horizons after partnering with none other than actor Mark Wahlberg’s Unrealistic Ideas production company.

Together, these two giants are forming another media production company with a focus on Gen Z viewers. Dubbed CrossCheck studios, this company aims to “cater to Gen Z content creators across all sectors of entertainment” and is “focused on becoming the premier venue for internet-native creatives.”

Whether or not Richards’ production company will launch full-fledged movies and tv shows remains to be seen, but it has already “put together a full slate of material” and is even “actively scouting new projects.”

“This is a real passion project for me that I’m going to pour my heart and soul into,” Richards said of his new venture. “We’re going to have a lot of fun along the way and build something great together. I would like to thank Mark, Lev and Archie for believing in a 19-year-old from a small town in Ontario. Now, let’s get to work.”

“I am impressed with Josh and all of the things he’s already accomplished,” Wahlberg commented. “We are looking forward to being in business with him and joining forces with CrossCheck Studios.”

With the likes of Charli D’Amelio and her family scoring their very own reality show on Hulu and rumors of Addison Rae potentially creating a song with Nicki Minaj, Richards’ newest partnership marks yet another huge milestone for internet-based content creators moving into the mainstream limelight.

Exactly what kind of content Richards’ company will put out remains to be seen, but it’s certainly exciting to imagine young innovators taking the reigns for a new generation of media.
