Seaside Heights Police In Riot Gear Disperse Crowd of 2,000

The Nelk Boys, with over 3.6 million Instagram and 5.7 million subscribers on YouTube rented out the Jersey Shore house in Seaside Heights today and drew a crowd of roughly 2,000 followers with them.  It wasn’t long before the Seaside Heights Police Department put out the call to surrounding towns to shut it down.  The YouTubers were unveiling a new line of clothing online, promoting their “Full Send” brand.    Instead, they were kicked out by police and crowds were dispersed.   The Nelk Boys, from Canada run a YouTube prank channel and have amassed a large audience, with some videos reaching up to 11,000,000 views.  The group then turned on their fans and told them if they loved them, they would leave.  “You guys have to leave, you’re ruining our biggest day,” they said.
