Shawn Mendes is used to being in the headlines, but this time, the news has nothing to do with his talent or pinup looks. Instead, Mendes sent social media into a meme frenzy when he injured himself by falling off a scooter in Nashville.
Calmly showing off the new cuts and bruises on his face, Mendes took to his Instagram story on Tuesday to share with his fans that he “fell off a Bird.”

It didn’t take long for confused fans to worry about the singer and immediately try to figure out what this “Bird” was. It had nothing to do with any feathered creatures: Bird is an electric scooter company that allows people to rent scooters in various cities, Nashville included.
That definitely didn’t stop Twitter from having some fun. Check the funniest reactions below:
