Here’s why O’ahu residents are mad at this local YouTuber

A local YouTuber is making the rounds on Twitter after a thread accusing her of allegedly violating the quarantine rules of O‘ahu Island, Hawaii went viral.

On Jul. 21, Twitter user @abbigbooty wrote a thread detailing how local vlogger Mika Salamanca allegedly violated her island’s quarantine rules. “Idk if anyone cares but this girl has been violating quarantine rules ever since she arrived here in O’ahu. She never owned up to it and even deletes comments that calls her out for it. She thinks she can get away with it because she’s famous,” she starts the thread with, and pulls up receipts in the subsequent tweets.

On July 5, Salamanca tweeted her temporary goodbye to the Philippines with hints of her trip. And after a few days, netizens have seen her uploading Instagram stories of her hanging out with her friends around O’ahu

According to the Hawaii Tourism Authority, all travellers are required to undergo a 14-day self quarantine in their homes or hotel rooms to monitor their health. They did issue a new order stating that you can be exempt from this quarantine if you tested negative 72 hours prior to landing, but that’s for travellers coming in starting Sept. 1.

Some locals have been replying to Salamanca’s fans on the thread informing them that some tourists have been arrested because they were also violating the mandatory quarantine policy. 

After receiving so much backlash from O‘ahu residents, Salamanca and her friends allegedly deleted their Instagram stories and TikTok videos. We have reached out to both Salamanca and FynestChina to get their side. As of writing, has yet to hear them regarding the issue.
