Some made mention of the high prices of a pint in London.
This man paid London prices for a pint. He was not going to let the #LondonAttacks stop him from enjoying it.

Many people were bothered by the fact that people are joking around so soon after a terror attack occurred. Many others seemed uplifted by finding humor during such a dark time.
People are hating on this bloke but after the scare he's had he'll bloody need that beer!

Nobody is ignoring the spilt blood but humour gives us the strength to fight for those who were hurt and killed. It's just how we do it here

After plowing through pedestrians on the bridge, the jidhadists moved on and went from bar to bar in Borough Market, stabbing people with foot long hunting knives. According to accounts of eye witnesses, people in the bar fought back by throwing chairs and pint glasses at the attackers.
The three attackers were shot and killed by authorities. Over a dozen suspects have been arrested by police. While London is down, this photo proves they are far from out. London is on our thoughts and prayers.
