Justin Bieber Was Very Amused After Cops Stopped Him Because They Understandably Thought He Stole His Shoes

It looked like Justin Bieber was in trouble with the police earlier this week.

However it was just a misunderstanding, and a quite amusing one at that.


While out and about Wednesday, the pop star was stopped by a police officer. The cop was concerned about the singer's sneakers.

Bieber was wearing limited edition Nike Air Max 90, part of a collaboration with the Off-White brand. The sold out shoe includes a white zip tie looped through the laces, giving the appearance of a security tag.

You can see where this is going.




It was pretty convincing, apparently.

Bieber began the Instagram story where he talked about the encounter with this:

"Virgil, my God, bro. You're freaking — you're killing me, man,"

Virgil Abloh is the founder of Off-White and helped design the shoes.

Bieber continued describing the encounter, saying:

"I had to tell him, 'Bro, it's just fashion."

The cop wasn't so easily convinced.

"I don't know. He's like, 'It sure looks like a security tag.'"

It's a pretty understandable mistake, right?

"I'm like, 'Nah, bro, you can check it out.' It looks like it though… but you're getting me in trouble!"

Honestly, how different is this from leaving the tags on clothes?






The shoes were part of a limited edition run. While they initially retailed for $160, they're found on the second hand market for a few hundred more.

Bieber and his wife, Hailey Baldwin, are both big fans of Off-White and its designer, Abloh.

Though maybe next time they can get something that doesn't give the impression it's stolen.

I mean, you had to have known the kind of reaction this would get.




Bieber has his own clothing brand he should have stuck with wearing.

Drew House launched in January with shirts, sweatshirts and sweatpants, emblazoned with his logo.

The pieces quickly sold-out.

People Divulge The Scariest Thing That's Ever Happened To Them

All of us have fears which some might call irrational.

Up to and including ghosts, witches, monsters.

But more often than not, reality can be far scarier than the supernatural.

And there are very few people indeed who don't have a memory of a moment when they were truly and genuinely scared.

And not by an otherworldly encounter, but by things that could quite literally happen to anyone.

Redditor GodhimselfUwU was curious to hear the scariest experiences people have lived through, leading them to ask:

"What’s the scariest non-supernatural thing that ever happened to you?"

Having to work for a living is hard work.

Some jobs come with difficulty and two extra sides of stress.

So the last thing people need is unwarranted hate.

I'm so glad I work from home. Writing alone.

I have issues with me, but that I can deal with.

I do hate internet issues.

But that is warranted.

Redditor PM_ME_URFOOD wanted to talk about the jobs where a ridiculous amount of vitriol is all part of a days work. They asked:

"What profession gets an unjustified amount of hate?"

People Explain Which Items In Life Should Always Be Free

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.
