Instagram Influencer faces backlash for partying in Bali amid lockdown
Tyrone Hermitt, a British Instagram Influencer based in Manchester, took to Instagram to post what a great time he was having at a party in Bali with crowds of people in the background.
As the world locks down and social distancing regulations have been enforced to combat the spread of COVID-19, Tyrone's fans were not pleased.
The video, which has now been taken off Hermitt’s social media, youngsters at a 21st birthday party in Bali with a DJ, ignoring all the rules set out by the World Health Organization. It contains footage of someone screaming, “Nothing low key about this!” from behind.
Very good social distancing bruh @tyrone_hermitt. Party all night in #Canggu, #Bali literally just last night.— shashaytam (@shashaytam) April 13, 2020
Mohon ditindak lanjuti para WNA di Canggu Bali ini. Tadi malam malah buat pesta di rumah! @jokowi @setkabgoid @KemenkesRI @ditjen_imigrasi @Menlu_RI @Kemlu_RI pic.twitter.com/MxUd1drdzk
Tyrone Hermitt has now reportedly deactivated his Instagram account after receiving backlash from the online community.
He said: 'This was not my party. I apologise for attending. I did not realise there was going to be as much people at the party and it looked more busy than it was. I respect Bali and will be donating to some charities to help locals who are losing jobs and need help.'
