Hornets Miles Bridges Goes Viral After Posting Himself Drinking Lean aka ‘Purple Drank’ And Smoking a Joint

This week is for Miles Bridges and his wife Mychelle Johnson. Miles is trending after posting himself drinking purple drank and smoking a joint on Instagram. He couldn’t stand the heat and had to quickly delete it.

According to TPS;

The 24-year-old Charlotte Hornets player posted on his Instagram Stories featuring a joint and a styrofoam cup with pink/purple-ish colored liquid inside.

He would soon take to Twitter and responded to the uproar. “Pink lemonade,” Bridges wrote, apparently in attempt to dispel speculation that has since bubbled up online that the drink contained codeine. The Hornets player also ended up deleting the tweet.

Away from Miles’s tomfoolery, this is how he performed this past season;

Bridges took a massive leap this past season as he went from averaging 12.7 points in 66 games (19 starts) to 20.2 points in 80 games (80 starts).

Prior to the start of the season, Bridges and his agent, Rich Paul, turned down the Hornets’ offer for a four-year, $60 million contract extension. It’s safe to say that he will be making significantly more money than that unless teams get turned off by his off-the-court activities.

If you are curious what the PURPLE DRANK is.

Lean, also known as purple drank, sizzurp, barre, and Texas tea, among other names, is a concoction of cough syrup, soda, hard candy, and, in some cases, alcohol. Originating in Houston, Texas, it’s typically served in a white Styrofoam cup.

The term “lean” comes from the position it tends to put you in after drinking it.

Here’s a look at what’s going on behind the Styrofoam.

People have been misusing codeine, a main ingredient in lean, for ages, but lean’s prominence in pop culture has made it more popular than ever.

Rappers (and Justin Bieber) have been singing its praises in songs — and dying or having seizures from it — since the late ’90s (though it seems to have first appeared in the ’70s or ’80s).

Here’s a highlight reel of lean’s more specific claims to fame in pop culture:

Reports suggest it’s a major factor in Lil Wayne’s ongoing hospitalizations for seizures.
Bow Wow recently opened up about almost dying as a result of his addiction to lean.
The late Mac Miller also described dealing with an addiction to lean in 2013.
Rapper 2 Chainz was arrested at an airport for possessing promethazine, a key lean ingredient.
Then there are the high-profile athletes whose lean-related suspensions and hospitalizations continue to make the headlines.
