(Bloomberg) — Here’s what’s buzzing on social media this morning:
Two New York City Police Department officers were shot in Harlem on Friday, one fatally. Officer Jason Rivera, 22, was killed after 10 to 15 shots were fired when he and other officers responded to a 911 call from a woman who said she was in a dispute with her son. The second officer is in critical condition.
Mayor Eric Adams called it an attack on the city of New York.
Saturday marks the anniversary of the Supreme Court’s 1973 ruling of Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion nationally. Soon, a conservative-majority Supreme Court will rule on whether a Mississippi ban on most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy is constitutional.
Pro-choice advocates worry that this could be the last anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision. Anti-abortion supporters called on the Supreme Court to overturn the court decision on Friday at the 49th annual March for Life rally.
Mars Inc. updated M&M mascots with the goal “to reflect the more dynamic, progressive world that we live in,” according to a company press release. The green M&M has lost its “sexy” boots and will sport sneakers. Likewise, the brown M&M will wear lower block heals, ditching high stilettos and the orange M&M “will acknowledge his anxiety.”
Ian Alexander Jr., only child of actress Regina King has died at the age of 26 from a suicide, People reported. “Our family is devastated at the deepest level by the loss of Ian,” King said in a statement to People. “He is such a bright light who cared so deeply about the happiness of others.” Alexander Jr., who was a DJ, turned 26 on Wednesday.

Police investigating threatening social media post captured near Pointe-Claire school – CTV News Montreal
Montreal police were on site at John Rennie High School Thursday after threatening images were posted to social media, which may have featured a firearm.
The post included two images: the first showed what appeared to be the side of the school. The second image depicted a young man holding what appeared to be a firearm in an unknown location.
Police say the post is related to a conflict between two people who have yet to be identified, and that they were likely going to meet at the school. The threats were not directed toward the school itself.
Police got a call reporting the post at around 9:40 a.m.
Students remained in class while officers stationed themselves at the school. The board notified parents of the situation and asked them not to pick up their kids.
School board officials said in an internal note to parents that “at no point were staff or students in danger.”
School officials decided to send students home in the early afternoon as officers continued their investigation. Some were bussed out of school property at around 1 p.m.
Police say their firearm division is trying to learn more about the threats. There have been no arrests.
In a statement released later in the day, the Lester B. Pearson School Board thanked the police for acting quickly.
“Today’s incident was extremely regrettable and troubling,” the board said.
“We are extremely relieved and thankful for the prompt and thorough response of law enforcement and the professional way our staff managed the situation.”
A school spokesperson confirmed classes would resume Friday morning.
