Noah Beck is speaking out about his recent trip to the Bahamas.
The 19-year-old TikToker joined a group of friends, including girlfriend Dixie D’Amelio, Charli D’Amelio, Chase Hudson, Bryant Eslava and Avani Gregg, on a getaway recently, which garnered quite a bit of backlash for traveling during the pandemic.
“It was really fun,” Noah told Pap Galore this week about the trip.
“It is what it is, you know,” he said. “I think, especially the business we’re in, it’s like you need some time to kind of disconnect for a little. That’s what that was meant for. It was just a little trip to get away. Wanted to get away from everything and we took a private jet, so it was just us.”
“We went on a private part of… we had our own little cabana, like no one was near us. Then yeah, there were a few times where we went into like the water park area, but the whole hotel itself, the resort, it was like 20 percent capacity, so there was barely anyone there,” Noah added.
In response to whether he thought people were overreacting, Noah said, “No, I mean, it’s a tricky one because from an outside perspective, you’d be like yeah, these people need to stop. It’s like, at the same time, we took all the… we were very cautious with what we did.”
“Let’s say, it’s just kind of funny because let’s say, that someone who’s commenting on our stuff, like, ‘You guys need to stay home,’ and stuff like that. Let’s say we DM one of them, like, ‘Yo, we want to fly you out to the Bahamas.’ If they say yeah, then you screenshot it and say, ‘this you?’ or something like that. It’s just not even worth it,” he continued.
“No matter what you do in life, people gonna say things and so. I don’t know, I always say just do what makes you happy, and like yes, there’s a lot of stuff going on in the world right now, but at the same time, it’s like, we’ve been so cautious throughout everything,” Noah said.
“We just needed this little time away to get kind of a reset, and especially in this business, when you constantly have these comments and so I think it was just necessary.”
This isn’t the first time recently that Noah has responded to backlash. See what he said mid-December about another situation…
