Blake Griffin Would “Slap” Justin Bieber If He Threatened A Starbucks Barista – Rollingstone

Justin bieber Blake Griffin

Back in early February, someone started a rumor about how NBA player Blake Griffin had slapped Justin Bieber after Justin rumored-ly threatened and verbally assaulted a Starbucks barista in Griffin’s presence. It obviously wasn’t a true story!

On Tuesday, Griffin sat down with Rolling Stone mag to discuss the rumor that he’d smacked the “misbehaving Bieber.”

via the Rolling Stone:

Rooling Stone: There was a Twitter rumor last month that you’d slapped Justin Bieber because he threatened a barista at Starbucks. We know it’s not true. But if you got the chance, would you slap Justin Bieber?

Blake Griffin: If he was tormenting a Starbucks barista, yeah, I’d have to. As a citizen, you do your part. Also, it’s a way of giving back to the baristas for never really leaving a tip.

The viral internet rumor originated on February 11, when a satirical sports blog called Empire Sports claimed that Griffin and Justin had inadvertently crossed paths at a Starbucks in Hollywood. The fabricated story claimed that Justin “snapped” after a barista refused to serve him unless he put on a shirt.

The blog claimed that Griffin told Justin to calm down, but Justin refused, prompting the Clippers star to slap him. “He smacked the sh—t out of him,” a witness allegedly said.

Eventually, Gossip Cop spoke to a source close to Justin, who confirmed that the blog was a hoax.

      I agree with Ivan and hitting someone is not “doing your part that’s just being a bully

  • stringbiebs

    Hitting someone is NOT how you “do your part” in society, makes you no better. As if Justin would go to cheap ass starbucks, he’s probably gets his coffee (if he even drinks coffee) shipped in. Lol.

    • Lailani

      You rarely see justin drinking coffee.

  • ivan

    So a guy who is about 6 feet 10 and weighs around 280 lbs threatens to slap a guy half his size? Is that not the definition of a bully?

  • nicki

    I agree with Ivan.

  • Belieber

    Hitting someone is just being a bully.
