A Woman Was Arrested For Choking Her Boyfriend Because He Wouldn’t Stop Singing “Thrift Shop”

Ugh, white people, am I right?

1. 23-year-old Samantha Malson assaulted her boyfriend, Lars Hansen, because he wouldn’t stop drunkenly singing “Thrift Shop.”

2. From The Smoking Gun article:

After Malson briefly left the residence, she returned and “began to listen to Macklemore’s song ‘Thrift Shop,’ which Hansen was singing while laying on the couch.” Malson, pictured in the above mug shot, told cops that Hansen sang the lyrics “over and over,” and that she asked him to stop “25 times” before the fracas began.

“He just annoyed me,” Malson told police. She also reportedly confessed that, “I grabbed him around the throat” and “I did it for intimidation.”

3. I mean, in her defense, the song is pretty overplayed.
