Ariana Grande is tired of LA influencers partying during COVID

Addison Rae and Bryce Hall are among the TikTok stars facing Ari’s wrath

If there’s one thing we’ve learnt from the pandemic, it’s that influencers love to party, and not even a deadly virus or the city of Los Angeles can stop them.

With coronavirus cases soaring in LA, the latest celeb to call out the city’s influencers is Ariana Grande, who blames them for “cancelling” Halloween.

The singer, who released her sixth studio album Positions last week, is a huge spooky stan, usually frequenting Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios multiple times a year. After the night was cancelled due to coronavirus, Grande took to the Zach Sang Show to voice her frustration.

“Couldn’t we have just stayed at home for a few more weeks?” she asked. “All the other countries were fine and are better than we are. Did we all really need to go to fucking Saddle Ranch that badly that like we couldn’t have waited for the deathly pandemic to pass? Like we are really needed to put on our cowgirl boots and ride a mechanical bull that badly? We all needed that Instagram post that badly?”

If the name Saddle Ranch sounds familiar to you, it’s because the western-themed restaurant is a regular haunt for TikTok stars and influencers alike, with Addison Rae, Bryce Hall, and more celebrating Halloween there this last weekend.

Grande’s not the only celebrity pissed at the unhinged social lives of TikTok’s elite. Billie Eilish previously called out influencers for throwing massive parties despite California advising against – and, in some cases outlawing – large gatherings.

Back in July, YouTubers such as Emma Chamberlain, Jake Paul, and James Charles, as well as members of TikTok’s Hype House and the D’Amelio sisters, came under fire for attending crowded parties in LA.

TikTok’s Bryce Hall also faced criminal charges for hosting a string of so-called “pandemic parties” in the Hollywood Hills, while other influencers have been blatantly ignoring COVID restrictions by touring US universities to party.
