Photo: Hey look, Justin Bieber with the Stanley Cup

Jul 9, 2013, 9:35 PM EDT

Celebrities love shiny things and everyone loves the Stanley Cup. Many people enjoy making fun of said celebrities.

With these undeniable truths in mind, it seems appropriate to note that Chicago Blackhawks marketing guy Peter Hassen Tweeted this photo of Justin Bieber posing alongside the sacred chalice:


Non-Beliebers are probably deeply offended by this blasphemous affront, but it’s far from the only time a polarizing pop culture figure posed with “the greatest trophy in sports.”

Here’s a quick gallery of famous people* (and a few B-list celebrities) with the Cup, because why not:

    Blow me, Beiber! You and your sorry ass fans shouldn’t be let within 100 miles of that cup after what happened in Vancouver!

        I just want to know why he is dressed like a homeless person. And, why does he have sunglasses on?

        He looks like a fool.

      • drone501 - Jul 10, 2013 at 11:06 AM

        they should shove that little bastard inside the cup and weld it shut

    • you4real - Jul 10, 2013 at 12:55 AM

      The hell does beiber have to do with Van?

    • cofran2004 - Jul 13, 2013 at 12:35 PM

      anyone else think he looks a bit like a 13 year old lesbian? no? just me?

  2. cweez2 - Jul 9, 2013 at 9:43 PM

    “Hey Phil, look over there!”


    “Oh look, I think he tripped.”

    Is he going full gangster now?

  5. pensman29 - Jul 9, 2013 at 9:47 PM

    Also mini me is as A LIST AS IT GETS!

    • jimeejohnson - Jul 10, 2013 at 12:33 PM

      He really is.

  6. einjzmolf - Jul 9, 2013 at 9:48 PM

    Sunglasses indoors.

    I can’t say anything about this that wouldn’t get Tyler Seguin in trouble so I won’t say anything.

  8. jaredo10 - Jul 9, 2013 at 9:56 PM

    biebers a clown. thinks he’s ja rule now a days

  9. kantnockdahustle89 - Jul 9, 2013 at 9:57 PM

    Put a f-ing shirt on if you know you are going to some sort of event to honor you.

    • imleftcoast - Jul 9, 2013 at 11:32 PM

      At least a bra, what’s with this Justine chick?

    • raiderufan - Jul 10, 2013 at 7:27 AM

      “Look how awesome I am when I don’t care about anything Bro!”

      Find solace in the fact that all these moron kids that think being famous is a reason to be famous crash….hard….and those who said “whats so special?” get to say “aww, isn’t he special now?”

  10. tru2joelu4eva - Jul 9, 2013 at 10:06 PM

    it’s been tainted. pro tennis talk here i come!

    • drone501 - Jul 10, 2013 at 11:08 AM

      is this really that bad for you.

    • jimeejohnson - Jul 10, 2013 at 12:44 PM

      No such thing as Pro Tennis Talk. Those tennis dudes and chicks are silent types.

      • tru2joelu4eva - Jul 10, 2013 at 2:03 PM

        i’ll do it. how about this … “recently, several players were forced to withdraw from wimbledon, arguably one of the most competitive tournaments in the world that represents the culmination of an entire life’s work and dedication, because the grass was slippery and they did the splits.”

      • cofran2004 - Jul 10, 2013 at 3:00 PM

        except when they’re playing. then things sound…. exciting.

  11. puckyouall - Jul 9, 2013 at 10:22 PM

    Would have been better to drop it off in dung factory. Maybe they can let Aaron Hernandez have a look too?

  12. lroc20 - Jul 9, 2013 at 10:27 PM

    I now hate Obrien as much as Bieber for posting this horse shat. Hopefully they get caught in a sex scandal together with Tebow n heroine

    • imleftcoast - Jul 9, 2013 at 11:33 PM

      He’s going to be starting for the Pats this season. Back off on the Jesus Jones jokes already.

  13. tbutler704 - Jul 9, 2013 at 10:33 PM

    I’ve never heard a single Justin Bieber song.

    Quite proud of that.

  14. watchthethrone92 - Jul 9, 2013 at 10:35 PM

    Jesus Christ, who let him touch it!?! Melt it down!

  15. nyrnashty - Jul 9, 2013 at 10:56 PM

    Hate Beiber for everything that you want to, but the dude is a legit hockey fan that can skate. I can’t name one song of his, so I really don’t care, but I know he can skate. Not saying he could play junior or anything, but he can skate well enough to see that he has a legit interest in hockey. Didn’t he attend a practice session with the Leafs a couple years ago? He obviously was messing around at the end of their practice, but not bad for a celebrity. He did better than most celebs would.

    • imleftcoast - Jul 9, 2013 at 11:34 PM

      So, you’re saying he can skate?

      • nyrnashty - Jul 10, 2013 at 10:10 AM

        Haha no, but not bad for someone that doesn’t play. I’ve seen way worse. I don’t know go to your local rink for examples.

      • wikidpissah - Jul 10, 2013 at 10:56 AM

        He’s better at playing hockey than he is at being black.

  16. nyrnashty - Jul 9, 2013 at 11:00 PM Bieber playing hockey with Leafs!

        i love this websiste lol

  18. eagles512 - Jul 9, 2013 at 11:43 PM

    Did someone purposely put together pics of my least favorite peope?

  19. credible316 - Jul 9, 2013 at 11:44 PM

    It’s always the most talented and influential musicians that die way too early, while garbage like this continue to contribute absolutely nothing to music nor society.

    • jimeejohnson - Jul 10, 2013 at 12:41 PM

      Yet he’s got a zillion fans all over the world. Just shows there will always be more stupid than smart people.

      • Anoesis - Jul 10, 2013 at 7:50 PM

        Having poor taste doesn’t make you stupid, it just means the carpet doesn’t match the drapes.

  20. tru2joelu4eva - Jul 9, 2013 at 11:58 PM

    and where’s drake? isn’t he like, canadian royalty?

  21. atwatercrushesokoye - Jul 10, 2013 at 12:24 AM

    The guy from Def Lepard needs to be told that it’s bad form for someone to raise the cup above their head until they’ve won it….however if the drummer from Def Lepard had done it then I’d be cool with that.

    Reminds me of the age old question: what has 9 arms and sucks? Def Lepard.

    • DED - Jul 10, 2013 at 10:44 AM

      Hey they were pretty good when they had 10. Those first three albums rocked.

  22. billsboy88 - Jul 10, 2013 at 12:38 AM

    In one picture, Beiber gave me at least 3 more reasons to hate him. Impressive d baggery, even for him

  23. blueballzny - Jul 10, 2013 at 1:29 AM

    There is no celebrity that I would love to beat the sh!t out of more than Justin Bieber. All I want is a chance to land one shot. That’s all I’m asking for!

    • jimeejohnson - Jul 10, 2013 at 12:39 PM

      You sound like a bully. You need your ass kicked!

  24. sharkie29 - Jul 10, 2013 at 2:42 AM

    Honestly not even surprised that the kid is wearing his sunglasses in doors again.

  25. comeonnowguys - Jul 10, 2013 at 7:28 AM

    I saw this in Facebook and hoped it was a product of Photoshop.

    Just when we thought Jim !@#$/^& Belushi holding the Cup high on the ice after Chicago won was going to be the undisputed worst thing to ever happen to the Cup… wow.

    • comeonnowguys - Jul 10, 2013 at 8:40 AM

      At least he’s not standing on the team crest while doing it, I guess.

    • comeonnowguys - Jul 10, 2013 at 9:00 AM

      I… spoke too soon.

      Dear Lord.

      • einjzmolf - Jul 10, 2013 at 9:10 AM

        If the hawks don’t win a cup in the next 100 years or so.. here’s your scapegoat just in case

  26. rpiotr01 - Jul 10, 2013 at 7:59 AM

    Oh well, it was a good run but looks like the cup has finally been desecrated beyond repair. Bieber-Sarandon-Obama-Bieber is just too much to bear. Time to go to the sports trophy store and get a new one.

  27. iwillfindyou - Jul 10, 2013 at 9:17 AM

    Pants on the geound. Pants on the ground. Lookin like a fool with his pants on the ground.

    I wonder if any of those Americans actually know what that silver thing they are holding is. Oh but the camera is on them, so they perk up and act like they do, starting with the head commie of the country down to his bootlick Sarandon.

    • wikidpissah - Jul 10, 2013 at 11:01 AM

      Of course Americans know what the Stanley Cup is; it’s belonged to U.S. teams for the past 20 years and counting.

      • jimeejohnson - Jul 10, 2013 at 12:34 PM

        Hey Canada: we got your Cup!

  30. obamareallysucks - Jul 10, 2013 at 12:09 PM

    bieber is still queer

  31. jkay1818 - Jul 10, 2013 at 12:20 PM

    He is a complete tool, but, in his defense, he is a big hockey fan and from the video’s i have seen online, he is actually a decent player. I saw footage of him skating with the leafs.
    What does being American have to do with it, he is from canada.

    • jimeejohnson - Jul 10, 2013 at 12:40 PM

      Glad to hear he skates; he probably wears figure skates!

  32. mclovinhockey - Jul 10, 2013 at 1:00 PM

    At least the kid has played hockey before

  33. blackhawks2010 - Jul 10, 2013 at 6:43 PM

    Get this Canadien douchebag out of the Hawks locker room. Now. Let him play with the Canucks President trophies….
