Last week, YouTuber idiot Jake Paul decided to throw a huge bash at his mansion in Calabasas amid COVID-19 surges in the state which put a halt to reopening. You can shut down a bar, but you can’t shut down Club Paul because that motherfucker threw a party. And he got called out by the Mayor of Calabasas. But hey, just because one rich privileged idiot did something bad doesn’t mean others will too. JK!
On Tuesday night, California was hit with another huge party which was attended by influencers like Nikita Dragun, Tana Mongeau, James Charles, and other people you’ve barely heard of but have millions of social media followers. This is a great time to have a party in California since it just overtook New York as the state with the most coronavirus cases. Prepare for all the fake apology videos that will come out of this.
The reason for the party (besides getting attention) was to celebrate the 22nd birthday of Larri Merritt, who is a member of the TikTok collective Hype House. It was held at the new Hype House in the Hollywood Hills (the old one got Bling Ring’d). Before the party, there was a dinner at BOA Steakhouse–adding yet another vector to their pathway of infection. Then they returned to their massive Hype House mansion. Co-Founder of Hype House, Thomas Petrou told The Hollywood Fix paparazzi there were maybe 67 people in his home and “hundreds” waited outside. That is a lot of effort just to get a disease.
More “celebs” (LOL) at the party included TikTok stars Charli and Dixie D’Amelio, Emma Chamberlain, the Lopez Brothers, Nick Austin, and more.

Not enough people have participated in the Resident Evil franchise, and it shows. Y’all don’t know how viruses spread, do you? And this isn’t even a zombie bite, you just need to get breathed on! Looks like the next TikTok challenge is: Survive Coronavirus.
