The mayor of Los Angeles has cut the power to the home of three TikTok stars over coronavirus fears.
The home to influencers Bryce Hall, Blake Gray and Noah Beck has reportedly violated the city’s “no large parties” rule multiple times.
“Today I authorised the City to disconnect utility service at a house in the Hollywood Hills to stop the large parties held there in flagrant violation of our public health orders,” LA Mayor Eric Garcetti tweeted on Thursday (local time).
“Parties like these can quickly and easily spread the virus and put our communities at risk.”
The mayor’s office said warnings had been issued to the home’s owner following parties on August 8 and August 14.
Blake Gray live-streamed the incident on Instagram and said he could see news helicopters hovering over the house.

Bryce Hall was heard saying he had been forced to take a cold shower because of the blackout.
Recently, Hall hosted a party in a rented home in Encino on August 14 but it was shut down after neighbours complained, according to Vulture.
Veteran YouTuber Tyler Oakley previously called out a series of influencers for attending parties as the state continues to battle the coronavirus pandemic.
