Frost later deactivated his Instagram, but clips of his videos have circulated widely on Twitter. They appear to show numerous shirtless partygoers dancing together under strobe lights, flouting their city’s strict social distancing restrictions.

“In the middle of a pandemic, @IanFrostok thought it would be a good idea to post 51 Instagram stories (yes, 51) of a house party he went to last night and early this morning in NYC,” journalist Yashar Ali tweeted.

Twitter user Phillip Henry posted more of the videos, dubbing the boys’ party a “rona rave”.

“People are f–king dying left and right and the gays are having full on house parties on a Monday night in NYC. JAIL,” he wrote.

Drag performer Marti Cummings added, “This is a slap in the face to every healthcare worker. Every person who has lost a loved one. Every person struggling with finances because of shut down.”

New York has recorded over 319,000 confirmed coronavirus and a statewide death toll of over 24,000 as of this week.

Governor Andrew Cuomo has put the city under with strict stay-at-home lockdown orders, with gatherings also strictly prohibited.

DJ speaks out after New York house party

New York DJ Alec Brian took to Instagram to confirm he was paid to play a “small house party” on May 4.

“I have been taking all precautions to socially distance, wear a mask and hand washing very seriously to stop the spread,” he wrote on Instagram.

However, Twitter users responded with screenshots they say showed the DJ’s face mask hanging loosely around his neck.

Brian continued, “As many of us are now unemployed, I had an opportunity to avail myself of some needed money to pay my bills.

“If I have insulted anyone or made anyone feel uncomfortable by this event, I sincerely apologise as that was certainly not my intent.”
