People Are Outraged Over How Adele Makes Tea

The British singer stirred some controversy.
Comments

Adele swept the Grammy awards on Sunday night, taking home five trophies and blowing away national audience with a show-stopping tribute to the late George Michael. She also received a heap of flack for beating out Beyoncé in multiple categories. But, as NPR first noted, the British singer is no stranger to anti-campaigns.

In fact, the 15-time Grammy winner was first thrust into the crosshairs of a boycott back in October 2015, when she made a simple cup of tea in her video for "Hello."

In the sepia-toned mini film, Adele decides to have a cuppa to soothe her broken heart. Once the kettle boils, she fills a floral-patterned cup with hot water and then drops the tea bag in.

That's when the Internet broke out into a clamor. Outrage, despair, confusion, and criticism ran rampant—especially among her British fans.




Who knew there'd be so much controversy surrounding the order of a proper cup of tea. As far as we knew, the British believe the most sacrilegious misstep would be leaving the tea bag in for too long—or even never taking it out. But apparently, we were wrong. Despite it all, though, Adele's probably pretty unscathed.
