Earlier today, The Chainsmokers started trending on Twitter (with over 65k tweets near its peak) for their charity show in the Hamptons this past weekend. With tickets available up to $25,000, one could say the charity portion of the event was a success. Unfortunately, videos and photos of the show demonstrate “egregious social distancing violations,” say NY Governor Andrew Cuomo, and he is “appalled.”
As a result, the NY Department of Health is launching an investigation into the event.
“We have no tolerance for the illegal & reckless endangerment of public health,” Cuomo said.
At time of publishing, The Chainsmokers have not said anything about the event or its lack of social distancing amid COVID-19.
Videos from a concert held in Southampton on Saturday show egregious social distancing violations. I am appalled.
The Department of Health will conduct an investigation.
