People Have Zero Humour And Demanded Biebs To Apologise For His April Fools’ Prank

April Fools’ Day featured a lot of funny shit. Not for a second did we fall for anything. We’re just too smart like that. But if you did, well, the joke’s on you my friend. It’s the internationally recognised day of shit-talking and stunt-pulling – all can be done freely, without backlash, because the calendar says so. That being said, if anything said or done on April Fools’ got you all bitter and cranky… you’ve been severely played.

The thing is though, people were offended. There were Internet trolls raging left, right and centre, keyboard-bashing the comments section of Bieber’s April Fools’ prank. Among all the April Fools’ jokes I’ve seen, it would appear that a pregnancy hoax is one of the most basic, but alas, Bieber did the deed anyway.

On the whole, people were positively dumbfounded by the news. Some expressed their shock and excitement, some were too smart to be fooled and labelled the pic as a total hoax. Just to make sure people weren’t clueing in too early in the piece, Bieber posted a secondary, follow-up pic. Oh gosh, I was in stitches at this point.

The third and final follow-up pic was the dead giveaway. If, at this point, you were still being strung along, I have no words for your absolute foolishness. You are a true April Fool.

Then There Was The Backlash

Bieber was trolled by a herd of extremely angry party-poopers who aggressively slammed the prank for being insensitive. Apparently, April Fools’ jokes now take on extremely important moral implications that we need to be wary of. There is no room for jokes these days, we’re done with it; society has faded into a humourless wasteland.

Oh please, give these trolls some scrunched up Kleenex and let them cry in isolation. I will not tolerate anti-humour rhetoric on International Prank Everyone Day — not when the gag is this harmless. Despite the ridiculousness of these cries, Bieber bowed down to the pressure and said he was Sorry

“I didn’t at all mean to be insensitive to people who can’t have children,” he said.

“A lot of people I know, their first go-to prank on April Fools is telling their parents they are pregnant to get a big reaction. But I will apologise anyway and take responsibility and say sorry to people who were offended.”

Let this be a warning, folks. 2019 is a no joke zone. No laughing, no pranking and for heaven’s sake, quit playing around.
