Canadian Coffee Chain Tim Horton’s Updated Their Lids And Justin Bieber Is Not Having It, “It’s A D*** Outrage And Needs To Be Changed Back”

Have you ever wondered, ’How does Justin Bieber take his coffee?’ Well, the answer is, seriously, very seriously. The pop super-star took to Instagram just a few days ago, to slam the Canadian coffee chain, Tim Horton’s, because they had the audacity to change their coffee cup lids! Needless to say, The Biebs was not happy about the change. here’s what went down.

Justin Bieber is not impressed with Tim Hortons coffee cup lids.

https://www.instagram.com/p/B2_h6cagTff/ The Canadian fast food chain, Tim Hortons, has received criticism over their leaky lids in the past, so they completely revamped them this year —but Bieber was not having it. The Canadian singer posted a poll on Instagram asking his followers: “Who’s Canadian and misses these lids at Tim Hortons like I do?”

After posting a poll about the lids on his Instagram story, Bieber posted the results.

Bieber posted the poll results on his Instagram page, showing 70 per cent of the people who voted miss the lids and 30 per cent did not. “@timhortons I know they could leak but it was easier to drink out of.. the coffee would come out better.. these new lids are uncomfortable on the mouth, and you get very little liquid each drink,” Bieber captioned the poll results.

Bieber was also upset that the lids were made out of plastic.

“It’s a damn outrage and needs to be changed back. Tbh [to be honest] it shouldn’t be plastic find a way to be recyclable let’s change the world 1 lid at a time,” Bieber added.

Bieber posted a response from Tim Hortons on Instagram.

The ‘Love Yourself’ singer then took to Instagram to post the response he received from the coffee house ‘“We’re making a a change one lid at a time. Thanks @timhortons,” the singer captioned it . The Canadian chain wrote: “Hey @justinbieber thanks for your feedback. Sorry you aren’t loving our new lids, but the good news is that they’re made with 100 per cent recyclable plastic. We’d love to have you join our team that’s working to make them even better! DM us.”

Bieber posted a photo of the old lids on Instagram, writing: “This is where it’s at @timhortons.”

The saga didn’t stop there. On Sunday, Bieber posted another photo of his Tim Hortons coffee with the old lid design. He captioned the post, “This is where it’s at @timhortons.”

But wait! There’s more..

While at a sporting event with his wife, Hailey Bieber, the chain gifted him with an entire bag of the old beverage covers, and of course he had to update us all on the status of the coffee lid debacle. “We lost but I got a bunch of lids so there’s a win out of the night somewhere :(“ he boasted on his Instagram Stories as he showed off his unusual gift.

And there’s even more tea (or should we say coffee?)

Justin responded to a random girl’s comment on the original lid outrage post, and we just thought it was pretty funny. So here you have it, because sharing is caring, here’s the shade thrown by Bieber to a random fan: “What would you do if I was in a hotel room alone?” read the fan’s comment. “Leave you there,” was Bieber’s shady response. 

The Canadian chain redesigned the lies to avoid spillage.

Starting in the summer of 2018, Tim Hortons gradually replaced Justin’s preferred lids in restaurants across Canada. The new lids, which he obviously dislikes, are taller, with a raised dome and tabbed closure, and are embossed with a maple leaf. According to Huffington Post Canada, they’re made of polypropylene — a recyclable plastic.

It’s not the first time the Biebs has taken to social media to complain about a product.

While Justin eventually did get dozens of his beloved old lids at the hockey game on Saturday, the singer has a previous history of making requests for brands to improve their stuff on social media. In May, he tweeted about the “need” for Popsicle’s Double Stick Popsicles to find their way back on to supermarket shelves. Though the brand teased a possible return for the large frozen treat in July, it has yet to make a permanent comeback, he did get his own custom made batch of popsicles.

A 9-Year-Old Was Tragically Shot Four Times While Making TikTok Videos With His Siblings

Javonni Carson, a 9-year-old boy from Atlanta, was making TikTok videos with his siblings when he was shot four times. The incident occurred last week, during a drive-by shooting that injured several other people.

Carson was shot four times in a drive-by shooting while he was making TikTok videos with his siblings.

Carson’s mother Keyona told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that her son was supposed to enter into the fourth grade this year and that he had been filming videos for TikTok with his siblings when the incident occurred.

Medical providers attempted to save his life during surgery for injuries that happened to his leg. According to Keyona, he is expected to recover. “My other two kids were there, too, and they saw everything,” Keyona explained. “Someone just drove by and started shooting… My 11-year-old said he was trying to crawl over to [Javonni], but there were already so many people on the ground.”

Keyona went on to explain that Javonni’s father rushed her son to the hospital and that she “didn’t know anything until I got to the hospital. I just knew he’d been shot.”

Two adults, who remain alive, were involved in the incident and were also shot according to an incident report.

According to the incident report, the shots were fired into a crowd in a parking lot, causing people to run and hide behind cars.

The shooter who was driving in the car has not yet been identified. Family members have set up a GoFundMe page to pay for Javonni’s recovery. According to the page which has  raised $8,749 out of its $20,000 goal, Javonni is an ” honor roll student at Deerwood  Academy also a striving football player and rapper he is loved by many because [of] his character and personality.”

“Thank for all the support for my family from families that don’t even know us and I send my own personal condolences to the other families that also felt this pain that no family should have to face,” the GoFundMe concludes. “Pray and Love on your families because they can be taken away at any moment.”

Over a month has passed since the death of George Floyd and while the aftermath of it seemed to spark a reaction that rattled those of us left behind to our cores, outrage over his death has slowed down. Likely you’re hearing less calls to end police brutality, seeing fewer signs that Black Lives Matter and most of your friends’ Instagram pages have likely returned to their usual blissfully ignorant states. Still, the fight for justice for George Floyd carries on and newly released transcripts of body camera footage show that Floyd had pled for his life and told officers at least 27 times that he couldn’t breathe before his death.

New transcripts from body camera footage of Floyd’s death have been filed in court.

Floyd (a truck driver, security guard, and father of five) told Minneapolis police officers over 27 times that he couldn’t breathe before he died. “I’m scared as fuck, man,” Floyd told the officers while they restrained them. “Tell my kids I love them. I’m dead.”

Transcripts of body camera footage show that Floyd told officers at least 27 times that he couldn’t breathe before passing out and dying.

“I can’t breathe for nothing, man,” Floyd told officers. “This is cold-blooded, man.” Ignoring Floyd’s cry for help, officer Derek Chauvin continued to pin Floyd down with his knee on his neck.

In the transcript, Chauvin can be heard saying to Floyd “Then stop talking. Stop yelling. It takes a heck of a lot of oxygen to talk.”

“I can’t breathe. I can’t breathe,” Floyd continued. “I’ll probably just die this way.”

The transcripts were filed by former Minneapolis police officer Thomas Lane in a move to have charges against him dropped.

Lane is one of four former police officers to be charged in Floyd’s death. Chauvin, Alexander Kueng, and Tou Thao are also being charged. Lane, Kueng, and Thao have been charged with aiding and abetting Chauvin in Floyd’s death. Meanwhile, Chauvin faces second-degree murder charges.

According to BuzzFeed, “In the motion looking to have charges against Lane dropped, attorneys argue he was a new officer on the force and following the cues from Chauvin.” At the time of Floyd’s death, Chauvin was not Lane’s field training officer. He had however been one in Lane’s precinct and had provided the Chauvin with instructions on how to deal with calls. Attorneys have pointed out that in the transcripts Lane called paramedics to the scene and asked if they should roll Floyd on his side while he was holding onto his legs.

In the transcript, Chauvin says “No, he’s staying put where we got him.”

According to transcripts, after Chauvin passed out bystanders pointed out Floyd was unresponsive. Still, Chauvin pinned him to the ground.
