Sway House neighbours claim TikTok group is ruining their street

The Sway House is one of the most famous groups on TikTok, with tens of millions of followers between them as they find their feet with their new-found celebrity status.

Content houses have been a thing for as long as online content has been a money-spinner. Now, with a new generation of adolescents and young adults taking over and making millions from TikTok, they’re becoming ever more popular.

The Sway House is a group of young men that have taken residence in a fancy Bel Air mansion, in an area usually preserved for celebrities and the super-rich and, as you can imagine, this has caused somewhat of a stir among residents.

The Sway House has caused some controversy in their quiet Bel Air street.

When member Bryce Hall calls himself and his fellow Sway members “Party Animals,” he clearly means it, as evidenced in recent interviews with some of his neighbors.

Speaking with the New York Times, Sway’s neighbors have explained what kind of people have moved into their street – and the trouble they’re causing.

Their neighbors immediately next door, including U.C.L.A law student Mindy Acevedo, have filed complaints against the group. She said: “In the morning, we hear paintball guns. I don’t think they sleep. Whenever they’re hanging out by the pool, the sound just carries. We can hear them shouting ‘chug, chug, chug.’ I’ve heard someone throwing up at night outside.”

This sounds like a standard student lifestyle, but it seems like this kind of behavior isn’t exactly commonplace in the neighborhood they inhabit.

Neighbors also say that the area has transformed into what “feels like Coachella,” with random girls passing through regularly, including turning up at the wrong houses, causing concern for residents on the street.

Some people mentioned the “zombielike” nature of fans waiting outside the house.

Neighbors say that they have contacted the Los Angeles Police Department more than once to make noise complaints, though Warren Lentz, the group’s talent agency TalentX’s CEO, says that to their knowledge, there have been no formal noise complaints.

They also claim to have contacted Sway members about the noise and issues arising from their residence, with Acevedo claiming that she contacted Bryce Hall to warn him she was going to make another formal complaint. His response, allegedly, was to simply ask her: “Aren’t you the babysitter?”

With concerns about swatting, doxxing and harassment, a number of the Sway neighbors claim that they’re worried about the possible repercussions of trying to sort things out with the Sway house. For now, unfortunately, it seems the neighbors’ issues are simply going to continue.

Call of Duty

xQc stunned by toxic Call of Duty players in Black Ops Cold War

Twitch Star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel is no stranger to trash talk, but what he heard while playing Call of Duty: Cold War was enough to throw even him for a loop.

Call of Duty: Cold War is one of the hottest games on Twitch right now, and xQc certainly seems to have gotten a taste of the series’ legendary chatroom toxicity.

We’re not saying that this is a symptom of the CoD community overall, but the series has built up a reputation for being host to some hilariously venomous lobbies. xQc found this out firsthand while sitting in a lobby, and after getting knocked out.

The face when the CoD lobby gets a little too lit.

Ask anyone who’s played Call of Duty for long enough, and there’s a good chance is they’ll have a hilarious story about a toxic lobby or three that they’ve been a part of over the years. Now, xQc can officially add that to his list of accomplishments as well.

During a late-night/early morning stream on November 17, Felix ran into a rowdy lobby he tried to calm down in vain, before being called out himself.

“Guys, guys, guys, it’s 3 AM on a f***ing Monday, you guys are playing Call of Duty talking shit,” the former Overwatch pro begged, to no avail, and got told to shut his mouth, just not quite with that exact term.

After this, you’d probably figure things couldn’t get more radioactive, right? Well, you would be wrong, because Felix also ran into some incredibly toxic personalities while he was playing.

After getting knocked out, xQc asked, “It was you right?” before being told in graphic detail what his assailant wanted to do to him. We won’t type the quote out here, but the clip below should give you the gist.

The Canadian does come from the wild west that can be Overwatch games, but nothing really compares to being cursed out by an absolute random in CoD.

Whether Felix will return to Black Ops remains to be seen, especially since he seems to have had the full experience during this stream alone.
