🚨Starbucks is Running Low on Ingredents 🚨




Some items that are missing in action are iced and cold brew coffee, sweet cream, guava and peach juice, the will to live, even cups and straws. Also apparently Almond Croissants, though I had one last week!

Supply chains are still struggling to deliver goods. As you woke ONTDers well know, Homophobic Supporters Chik-Fil-A has been limiting sauces as well.

People are losing trust and faith in the company. “I know if you go after a certain hour that they’re going to be out of some items,” said a man. “But this was 6:45 in the morning.” Some people have even stopped visiting.

Who is Gabbie Hanna and Why Do People Hate Her?



** 30 year old Gabbie Hanna made a name for herself on Vine, moved to YouTube after Vine shut down. Nominated for Youtuber of the Year in 2018. Channel is now largely dormant.

** controversies include: making a video about the drug overdose of a classmate without consulting the family, endorsing shitty make up brushes (then blamed her fans for expecting quality for $10), tweeting "If I could be any animal, I'd be a beyonce", staying friends with Jessi Smiles' accused rapist Curtis Lepore.

** says Gabbie: “Who didn’t I apologize to. I gave Jessi Smiles an apology. I gave Beyoncé an apology. It feels like I’m always dishing out apologies and I’ve never once received one, and that to me feels a little chaotic.”

** including this excerpt because SHEW! I watched as she put on a strapless black leather dress, a clear raincoat, a lucite bow tie, and treacherously high clear heels for the shoot. Hanna applied a dual-tone lip, red on top and black on the bottom — something she’s trying to make her signature look. She smiled at herself in the mirror and teased her hair. “Everyone made fun of Freddie Mercury too.”

** also gets roasted for her poetry. example: time is relative. beauty is relative. family is relatives.
