I just had my model 3 delivered and today is the first time I had three friends seat in the car. The car keep warning me that rear seats belt is not plugged in. There is no law in my state saying that rear seats passengers should buckle up but the car is just keep warning and warning me all the time. Is there a way to disable rear seats seat belt warning?

First: I think this is a stupid idea.

Second: Yes, there are two hinges just beneath the front lip of the rear seats. You swivel them sideways and lift up the rear seat. One on the left side and one on the right.
Be very careful, because there are 2 cable bundles underneath, one which is for heating the seats, and one for "reporting weight" on the back seats.
I don't know which is for what. The the 2021 both clips are on the same side, on earlier builds it's one cable on each side.

You can tell your friend to buckle up. Just because there is no law doesn't mean it is a bad idea.
Also, you can hit the button on the screen to identify that seat as having a carseat, since your friend is a big baby who can't wear a seatbelt...

Ah, much better than my suggestion.
This makes my suggestion as stupid as driving without a seat belt...

1) have them put a seatbelt on
2) if you really want to ignore safety you can simply set their seat to a baby seat by tapping the seat in the gui.

Yes, when the warning comes up just click it and it'll be disabled (goes grey). I have dogs and have to do this often.

Well, I am guessing you know that the Tesla isn't aware of laws in your state :D Even if it isn't a law, wouldn't it be wise to have them use seatbelts anyway.
