Def Noodles Twitter TikToker Bryce Hall ignored social distancing guidelines over the weekend while celebrating his 21st birthday.

TikToker and YouTube personality Bryce Hall is facing backlash after videos of his 21st birthday emerged over the weekend — showing a packed house party in spite of California health orders.

Hall, boasting 12.8 million TikTok followers, was seen celebrating Aug. 14 at the Hollywood Hills TikToker Mansion the Sway House, in which roughly 100 people were filmed without masks and social distancing, Insider reported.

A person who attended the party but wished to remain anonymous told Forbes that at least 75 people attended the 21-year-old’s gathering, including around 20 strippers hired for the event. All guests used hand sanitizer before entering, the source added.

Among the attendees were several notable TikTokers and influencers, including Harry Jowsey from Too Hot to Handle, TMZ added.

The Los Angeles Police Department around 4 a.m. shut down the Sway party for violating the city’s social distancing guidelines, Insider said. Los Angeles County currently has the highest number of confirmed coronavirus cases in California, with a total of roughly 219,000, according to state data.

Heavy has reached out to Hall for comment and is awaiting a response.

In a 25-tweet thread, YouTube personality Def Noodles documented the birthday bash to his more than 21,000 followers.

The influencer’s footage captured scores of guests without masks standing shoulder-to-shoulder inside and outside of the house. Several videos depicted Hall seated in the middle of a crowded room while both male and female strippers danced on him.

In one video, Hall is seen on top of a kitchen counter, expressing, “I can legally buy alcohol now!”

Hall’s celebration was at least the mansion’s third party in the last four days, Def Noodles told Insider.

As Def Noodles’ videos and other clips began to circulate online, many took to social media to criticize Hall’s behavior.

Several users slammed the influencer for setting a poor example to his millions of followers during the ever-growing coronavirus pandemic.

“hi @BryceHall @jadenhossler @BlakeGray @JoshRichards & others who have been partying with large groups – please consider social distancing, mask wearing, & using your huge platforms to encourage responsibility during a worldwide pandemic. the below thread is… disgusting,” YouTuber Tyler Oakley tweeted.

Others predicted that Hall would get the virus.

Despite widespread criticism and local health orders in place, influencer parties akin to Hall’s are becoming increasingly common.

YouTube star Jake Paul has been in the hot seat numerous times over the last few weeks for hosting parties that ignore social distancing guidelines, Insider reported.

The influencer, who has amassed over 3 million followers on Twitter, told the outlet last month that he had no intentions of stopping the partying.

“No one has answers, our leadership is failing us, and everyone kind of just doesn’t know what to do,” Paul expressed. “But I personally am not the type of person who’s gonna sit around and not live my life.”
