Satire news in the world of sports have claimed more and more victims the past few weeks, and most of them involve reports that certain audiences want to be true. The most recent viral "outbreak" involved the Super Bowl.
Now, we have two very popular celebrities from different fields: Blake Griffin, superstar forward of the LA Clippers and Justin Bieber, pop music icon. The venue: Starbucks in LA, where else?
From Empire Sports, the incident was reported:
"'He came in with no shirt on and his pants hanging down and underwear showing and tried to order a caramel apple machiatto.', said Joey Goldsmith, the Starbucks barista, 'I just told him he would have to put a shirt on if he wanted to order.'
According to the police report Bieber started cussing at the barista and threatening to have his bodyguard, 'kick his ass'.
Fortunately for Goldsmith, LA Clippers star Blake Griffin had been enjoying a drink at a table when he witnessed the altercation and stepped in.
Witnesses at the scene reported that Griffin tried to calm Bieber but the Biebs wasn't having any of it. There was more yelling, and some pushing and that's when Griffin smacked Bieber, knocking him to the floor.
'He smacked the shit out of him,' said one witness, 'then I saw Justin stumble out of the door looking like he was crying.'"
The report was debunked by Gossip Cop. Citing that several sports blogs have reported on the "heroic deed," the site proceeded to contact Bieber:
"Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to Bieber, who tells us exclusively that the rumor is "made up," saying, "Justin has not returned to Los Angeles [for weeks]."
That would have been the end of it, but we have an eyewitness to challenge the alibi! That's none other than Chris Kaman of the Los Angeles Lakers and a former teammate of Griffin, who tweeted:
I was sitting in the corner of Starbucks and Blake did not smack Bieber! Well at least not that hard.....

Is Chris Kaman a credible witness? Considering he likes to sleep a lot, even during a game, this might be a scene in one of his dreams.
You can't blame Chris, but it was too good to be true.
