Anime Right News (ARN) – A Twitter user who goes by the handle @LLW902 has deleted his account after bragging about allegedly slipping estradiol pills in the coffee cups of conservative customers and receiving massive backlash on Twitter for it.
Estradiol is an estrogen steroid hormone and the major female sex hormone. In addition to being a natural hormone produced in women, estradiol is used as a medication for hormone therapy. Estradiol has been linked to development and progression of certain gynecological cancers in women as the hormone interacts two nuclear receptors, estrogen receptors a and b. One of the functions of these receptors is to control gene expression. Once the estradiol has bound itself to the estrogen receptors, it is now free to cause damage to the DNA that increases cell division. Ekaruytioc cells respond to the damage of the DNA by stimulating the G1, G2, or S phases of the cell division cycle, hoping to initiate DNA repair. As a result of this, the cancer cells are able to reproduce prolifically. Excessive concentrations of estradiol can also lead to cholestasis is both men and women, a condition where bile cannot flow from the liver to the duodenum.

Both Starbucks and the Phoenix police force were notified, both of whom have not made any comment on the situation at hand. Lauren has since privated and deleted his Twitter account after receiving backlash over his tweet.
