TikTok squad The Sway House has come under fire from their neighbors. Yep, the people who live next door to them are reportedly not happy with the group of influencers after they “wreaked havoc” on the neighborhood.
For those who missed it, the squad, which consists of Bryce Hall, Quinton Griggs, Anthony Reeves, Kio Cyr and Griffin Johnson, moved into a new house together in Bel Air, CA, back in January. But after they started living there, the neighbors explained to The New York Times that “trash started to accumulate on the sidewalk.” Jaden Hossler and Josh Richards were also part of the social media group, but recently announced their departure.
The neighbors claimed that the guys made “life a nightmare” and described how the quiet street “has been transformed into what one said feels like Coachella.”
“In the morning we hear paintball guns. I don’t think they sleep,” Mindy Acevedo told the outlet. “There’s a pool outside. Whenever they’re hanging out by the pool, the sound just carries. We can hear them shouting, ‘Chug, chug, chug.’ I’ve heard someone throwing up at night outside.”
The neighbors even alleged that the Sway House members have repeatedly ignored social distancing guidelines during the coronavirus pandemic, and have thrown large parties. And one unnamed neighbor said she felt “scared and violated” after women showed up her doorstep in the middle of the night, accidentally mistaking her home for the Sway House.
“With fans and actual people mistakenly showing up to our houses, there’s a virtual and a physical threat,” Amit Runchal added.
According to the magazine, the neighbors have even called the police to file noise complaints. But Warren Lentz, the manager of The Sway House, denied this.
“To our knowledge there have been no formal noise complaints,” he explained. “We have been in frequent communication with both the L.A.P.D. and city counsel to ensure the safety of the neighborhood. In order to follow proper protocol, we hired security for our clients and the house.”
