Nothing goes better with a cup of coffee after a hard day’s work than Harry Styles covered with brown sauce in a white roll.

Paul McInnes, 42, spent last Sunday afternoon working out at the gym.

“So I thought I’d treat myself and my better half, Kim, to a bacon sandwich,” Paul, who works at traffic management company Reported Medias Traffic Services, tells Reported

He stopped by his restaurant Lidl in Maidstone, kentto buy a packet of bacon medallions.

But when Paul tossed the eight slices of pink and limp pork onto a piece of aluminum foil, he noticed something.

As it was, one of the slices of bacon matched the tousled hair and square chin perfectly A direction star, 28

“I took it out of the box and put it on the tray and started laughing in the kitchen and my significant other wondered what I was laughing at,” says Paul.

“So I took it to her and said the bacon looks just like Harry Styles – she thought it was hilarious!

“The whole pack looked like Harry Styles. Eight identical Harry Styles.

“Kim googled a picture of Harry Styles for comparison and the first picture she found looked the same. I sent it to all my friends on WhatsApp.

“Later on I read about how someone’s KFC was in the form of England. But I think our Harry Styles is a lot funnier,” adds Paul.

Paul admits he’s not actually a fan of the pop prince’s music. “His music is not quite my taste,” he says.

But Bacon Harry is. “He’s a sexy man and made a yummy bacon bun,” says Paul.

“After hitting the gym, eating Harry Styles’ face was just what I needed.”

Perhaps it’s a sign of the times, given the cost-of-living crisis, the looming threat of World War III, and the constant political unrest at home, but it’s not just bacon that people have seen celebrities wearing.

A mother was convinced that she had witnessed the second coming of the greasy Christ seeing an oil stain on a pizza box that looks like the face of Jesus.

While a Beatles superfan found John Lennon looking straight at him in his pint of beer.

“We said today that next time we go to the supermarket,” adds Paul, “we might end up with a piece of bacon that looks like Dame Judi Dench.”

NYC: Cop rappels down skyscraper to arrest FBI fugitive threatening to jump

New Yorkers watched in horror Wednesday morning as a man threatened to jump in front of a broken window of a Midtown skyscraper.

NYPD officers rushed to the scene around 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, when bystanders reported a man hanging from the 31st-floor window of CitySpire, a 72-story skyscraper on 56th Street.

The man was identified as Ian Mitchell, 35, and was served with an arrest warrant by FBI agents. He was wanted by the agency on white-collar crime charges.

“They responded there and found the man in a crisis,” New York City Police Department Chief Jeffrey Maddrey said. “He was wanted there by another agency and instead of going peacefully with that agency, he considered taking his own life.”

The standoff lasted about eight hours on Wednesday as negotiators tried to lure the man off the ledge.

Just before 5 p.m., the NYPD Emergency Services Unit made the decision to rescue the man. A group of officers entered the apartment while another officer abseiled from the 32nd floor.

The rappelling officer was later identified as Detective James Tobin. After Tobin blocked the window frame, another officer at the Mitchell apartment snapped his way back into the building.

The entire encounter only lasted about a minute. Video footage was later released by NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell.

“You all saw the video and witnessed the tremendous bravery of Detective Tobin, who climbed out of a 32nd floor window in Midtown Manhattan to push this man back in the window for the rest of the team to grab him and bring him to safety Chief Maddrey said at a news conference later that evening. “What they did today was beyond brave. All New Yorkers should applaud their bravery.”

Mitchell was then escorted to an ambulance and taken to Bellevue Hospital, where he will undergo a psychiatric evaluation.

It’s not clear why the FBI investigated Mitchell. However, he was previously indicted in 2019 for allegedly posing as an investment banker to defraud investors out of over $100,000 New York Post.

NFL: Hockey team refuse to wear Pride jerseys due to Russian law




The NFL has at least one team that will not wear Pride pre-match jerseys due to Russian laws – the Chicago Blackhawks (Image: AP)

A professional ice hockey team decided not to wear Pride jerseys because one of their players is Russian.

The Chicago Blackhawks will not wear their Pride Night commemoration pre-match jerseys on Sunday as a Russian law expands restrictions on activities deemed to promote LGBTQ rights.

Russian President Vladimir Putin signed legislation in December significantly tightening restrictions on activities seen as promoting LGBTQ rights in the country. It builds on a 2013 law and bans advertising, media and theatrical productions deemed “propaganda for non-traditional sexual relations”.

There are safety concerns about wearing the Pride jersey in the game against the Vancouver Canucks.

Blackhawks defender Nikita Zaitsev hails from Moscow.

The National Hockey League and Dan Milstein, who represents teams like the Blackhawks, declined to comment.

But Blackhawks coach Luke Richardson said he and the players are disappointed.

“It’s an unfortunate situation, but that’s what we have to deal with,” Richardson said.

“I don’t think we can control world problems, so it takes that out of our hands. We’re just making decisions as best we can as an organization and for everyone.’

The Blackhawks have previously worn Pride pre-match jerseys. The team has other programs planned to honor the pride. LGBTQ DJs will be DJing before the game and the Chicago Gay Men’s Chorus will sing during an intermission.

“We don’t want the shirts to represent the whole night,” said Blackhawks defenseman Seth Jones.

“We still do a lot for the LGBTQ community and we as players respect that. We just thought this was the best thing for our team. We know the organization puts the players first.’

Russian players from other teams have already opted to wear Pride jerseys, including Nikolai Knyzhov and Alexander Barabanov, who play for the San Jose Sharks.

Pride Nights are coming up for the Canucks and Buffalo Sabers. The Canucks have yet to announce their plans and the Sabers are still in talks about it.

LGBTQ+ people in Egypt ‘terrified’ after police ‘use apps for arrests’




A potential “150” LGBTQ+ people have been arrested in recent days, a gay Egyptian man claimed (Image: Grindr/Getty)

Fear and unease shook Egypt’s LGTBQ+ community this week after police arrested dozens of queer men using dating app Grindr.

How this works has long been known Undercover cops use aliases to roam dating apps to catch and arrest gay men In Egypt.

But on Monday, Grindr sent out a nationwide warning that officers are now using real people’s Grindr profiles after arresting them to conduct covert operations.

Reported understands activists on the ground say at least 35 have been arrested by police in the last five days – although that number is likely to be far higher.

The Grindr warning read: “We have been warned that Egyptian police are actively arresting gay, bi and trans people on digital platforms.

“They have even used fake accounts and also taken over accounts from real community members who have already been arrested and had their phones stolen.

The pop-up message flashed on phone screens on Monday (Image: Grindr)

“Please use extra caution both online and offline, even with accounts that may have appeared legitimate in the past.”

Among those who received the alert was Karim (not his real name), 21, a gay man living in northeastern Egypt.

He wasn’t surprised by the pop-up — he even knew it was coming.

“We found out three days before the news that we all received a voice memo from a friend in another city telling us to be careful as 28 gay men were arrested by police via the app and forced to give their calling friends to come the police can collect as many as possible,” Karim claimed.

One of his friends was found dead just two months ago.

“We were all scared but didn’t delete the app out of curiosity,” he added, “until we got the message.

“I wasn’t surprised when I got the message on the app. I was just surprised it was so serious that the app itself warns us we were all scared.”

“When a person is arrested they take 10 others with them because the police take the phones and open them and look in and then see who the person was talking to and where they are meeting,” he added.

He said some of his friends estimate the number of arrests could easily be in the triple digits. “150,” Karim said.

As gay, bisexual, and transgender Grindr users languish in jail cells, Karim fears what will become of him and his friends if this crackdown continues.

The warning signs are already there. His friends have seen people’s Grindr profiles and social media accounts become “ghosts” in recent days – he fears the worst.

The LGBTQ+ community in Egypt is tight-knit, Karim said. Apps like Grindr are invaluable ways to meet other queer people in a country where 95% of people consider gay to be unacceptable, according to a Pew Research Center survey.

“Me and my circle are very careful who we meet,” Karim said. “We have her in touch on all his social networks and we make sure he is known by other friends.”

In countries where the legal rights of queer people are shaky — or non-existent — Grindr introduced new security features in 2019, such as: B. endless messages, temporary photos and using a discreet app icon.

Grindr said in a statement to Reported “The persecution of LGBTQ+ people everywhere is unacceptable.

“Grindr works with local groups in Egypt to ensure our users have up-to-date information on safety, and we urge international organizations and governments to demand justice and safety for Egypt’s LGBTQ community.

“Our hearts are with our church in Egypt.”

Homosexuality is not technically illegal in Egypt, but LGBTQ+ people face entrenched bigotry and are routinely prosecuted under a “debauchery law” dating back to the 1960s.

Some suspected LGBTQ+ people are picked up by police simply because of their appearance or behavior.

Egypt’s National Security Agency then puts detainees in “inhumane conditions” before illegally searching their phones, according to Human Rights Watch.

It’s all part of an ongoing crackdown on human rights by President Abdel Fatah al-Sissi, who came to power in a military takeover nearly a decade ago.

Karim knows that well. “I don’t go out on the street when there are a lot of people there. I don’t sit in public places either,” he said.

When he meets other LGBTQ+ Egyptians, Karim says he meets them at home or in cafes and restaurants so late at night that “no one will be around”.

“I don’t wear anything that isn’t masculine,” he added. “When I’m wearing something feminine for a special private party, I cover myself all over with coats and shirts to hide what I’m actually wearing underneath.”

Karim even has to watch his voice, as he’s wary of anything that might draw the attention of a stealthy cop.

“I’m afraid to speak to anyone directly so they don’t notice my feminine voice, I don’t move my hands in public,” he said.

“I don’t go out in public. We travel around with cars and if there is no car we stay at home.”
