Ever since the coronavirus pandemic started in March, celebrities have used their social media platforms to call out fellow stars and influencers for not social distancing during the ongoing health crisis.
Billie Eilish took to Instagram Stories on Tuesday, September 15, and quickly went viral after slamming those who continue to party amid the global pandemic.
“Funny how I haven’t hugged my best friends in six months, and y’all are out here partying,” the singer, 18, said, according to videos reposted on social media.
Over the past few months, social media influencers have been coming under major fire from fans for hosting and attending parties. TikTok stars Bryce Hall and Blake Gray were even charged by Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer on August 28 for violating the Safer Los Angeles Health Order and the City’s Party House Ordinance twice following “a couple” house parties held at their home in the Hollywood Hills. They face up to one year in jail and up to $2,000 in fines.
Despite the constant backlash, influencers have clapped back and explained why they won’t stop hanging out with friends. During an interview with Insider from July, Jake Paul said he’s “not gonna sit around and not live my life” after throwing a massive party. Charli D’Amelio also assured fans that she was “being safe” after accusations that she wasn’t social distancing hit the web.
Fellow celebrities have continued to urge influencers to take accountability for their actions even after they responded. Scroll through our gallery for all the stars who have called influencers out for partying amid the coronavirus pandemic.
