Bryce Hall is airing his grievances on Twitter after Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti shut off power in his Hollywood Hills home due to excessive partying during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Hall, who has nearly 13 million TikTok followers, said in a Thursday tweet that he "woke up sweating bullets" during the heat wave in LA, which has reached above 100 degrees Fahrenheit this week. The National Weather Service has issued an excessive heat warning for the area.

The tongue-in-cheek song choice — with lyrics that include the line, "all I need is to be struck by your electic love" — appeared to reference the electricity shut-off. Advertisement
Gray, who lives in the home with Hall and fellow creator Noah Beck, has also documented the powerless days. Gray live-streamed on TikTok on Wednesday to show the pitch-black home.

Mayor Garcetti shut down the house's power on Wednesday after Hall hosted a 21st birthday party with 100 guests on Friday. (The house he currently lives in, which Garcetti cut the power from, is not the house in which he hosted the party.) The mayor's office had given several warnings about large parties during the pandemic before shutting off the power."Despite several warnings, this house has turned into a nightclub in the hills, hosting large gatherings in flagrant violation of our public health orders. The City has now disconnected utilities at this home to stop these parties that endanger our community," the mayor said in a statement.
Taylor Lorenz of The New York Times first reported the news of the shutdown and said that the house did not lose running water.Hall did not return Insider's request for comment in light of the power shutoff.Hall has been partying with other members of Sway LA, his TikTok creator collective. Many LA-based influencers, including Tana Mongeau and Jake Paul, have been criticized for their refusals to stop partying during the pandemic, which has seen several spikes in LA. In an interview with Insider, Paul said that he wasn't sure if he would stop having ragers, including one that doubled as a music video shoot. Advertisement
"I don't know what to think of it, to be honest. I don't think anyone really does," Paul told Insider. "No one has answers, our leadership is failing us, and everyone kind of just doesn't know what to do. But I personally am not the type of person who's gonna sit around and not live my life."
