1. Kendall Jenner

The Kardashian family doesn’t seem to care about COVID-19.

2. Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian couldn’t refrain from celebrating her birthday, either. A few days before Jenner’s party, Kardashian flew a few dozen friends to a private island and shared the evidence on social media.

3. Justin Bieber

A role model for young people no longer, Justin Bieber and wife Hailey decided to throw a maskless party at the height of the pandemic in Los Angeles. To be clear, throwing a party where attendees actually do where masks wouldn’t be much better, but this particular party went against government guidelines in more ways than one.

4. Donald Trump Jr.

Donald Trump Jr. attended a party with around 100 attendees in Bridgehampton, NY. According to the East Hampton Star, partygoers “enjoying a catered rooftop event at sunset, most … not wearing masks, and evidently not practicing social distancing. At the time — as now — New York State was in Phase 3 of reopening; gatherings of up to 25 people are permitted, so long as masks are worn when distances of six feet cannot be maintained.”

5. Governor Gavin Newsom

This is a good one. California Governor Newsom apologized after attending a friend’s 50th birthday party, saying that he didn’t realize how many people would be in attendance and that he should have just gone home.

Dishonorable mentions

YouTube personality Jake Paul attended parties during the pandemic after calling it a “hoax”.
