His alleged hospitalization comes days after he posted a video of himself dragging his tongue along the seat of a toilet in a public washroom, as part of the "Coronavirus Challenge" on social media.
It comes just two days after the prankster, who goes by the social media handle GayShawnMendes, posted a video himself on Friday running his tongue across a public toilet as part of a weird - and widely criticized - "Coronavirus Challenge" on social media.
The social media influencer gained notoriety after reportedly being involved in viral videos featuring him licking stores' ice cream cartons and more.
A later publish reportedly incorporated a video of the influencer mendacity in a health facility mattress.
This came only two days after he posted photos licking the public toilet seat.
A week ago, we brought you the story of how Instagram models were doing the "Coronavrius Challenge", where they purposely licked toilets on video for Likes and views.
"I tested positive for Coronavirus", the 21-year-old from Beverly Hills tweeted on an account that has since been suspended, the outlet reported.
"Why is this complete moron getting treated? He should be in jail, not taking up a vital hospital bed".
He went on to say, "I don't take any pleasure, I don't wish illness on people, but this has got to stop". These acts of reckless stupidity. "That guy who licked the toilet bowl, did he infect anyone else?"
Larz, 21, who is based in California in the USA and posts under the handle GAYSHAWNMENDES has participated in previous challenges including licking tubs of ice cream in supermarkets.
