Last Friday, LA-based TikTok star Bryce Hall brought in his 21st by hosting a birthday bash with Sway House during a pandemic. If you hadn't heard, Sway House is a group of TikTok influencers (including Bryce) who all live together in a massive mansion. Nice!!! Live your best lyf you guys.
For context, young people are currently driving up COVID-19 case numbers in LA. Even if they do not become seriously sick themselves, they can still transmit the virus to others – like those with pre-existing conditions or the eldery. Those people could end up in hospital. Or they could die. Spending their final moments on earth alone.
ANYWAY, here are some male strippers at Bryce’s party! Lolllll they’re dressed as police officers! That is classic.
A week ago, California surpassed 10,000 deaths due to COVID-19. It also became the first US state to report 600,000 COVID-19 cases last week.
HEY, did we mention that Bryce has 12.8 million followers on TikTok!?! What a guy.
Reports indicate there are even people in their 20s who are struggling to recover from the disease. Patients can end up with permanent damage to the lungs, scarring and a lower respiratory capacity, making it harder to breathe. Permanent brain damage could also be on the cards.
Back to the party!! Some actual non-stripper police officers broke up the gathering at around 4am. My god! What a buzzkill. U had a good run though Bryce!! Here’s some more footage of the crowd!
As only known about COVID-19 for six months or so, experts don’t even know the long-term effects of the virus. The future of COVID-19 survivors is completely uncertain, regardless of how old you are. Because COVID-19 affects so many organs, survivors may encounter many long-term problems, including the possibility of ‘post-COVID lung disease’ and post-viral chronic fatigue syndrome.
To his credit, Bryce DID give a thoughtful response to these concerns on Twitter.
Fantastic. HBD, Bryce! Welcome to the club.
