Tim Hortons’ latest attempt to combat COVID-19 fears hasn’t gone down too well with Roll Up The Rim fans. As the company announced that Roll Up The Rim cups were cancelled this year, Canadians have taken to social media to respond to the heartbreaking news. Naturally, the meltdown has been dramatic and hilarious AF.\nIn a statement last week, Tim Hortons announced to Canada that the paper cup aspect of Roll Up The Rim would be cancelled this year, due to health concerns amid the novel coronavirus outbreak.\nThe company explained that there were health issues related to staff handling cups that had recently been touched and sipped by customers. Instead, the app is the only way to participate in the competition, which runs from March 11 to April 7.\nWhile the coffee-and-donut store confirmed it will redistribute all $30 million worth of prizes to in-store giveaways and the digital contest, Canadians are apparently not prepared to let go of the physical "roll".\nAfter banning reusable cups in their restaurants earlier this month, it seems this latest announcement has been a step too far for Timmies lovers in Canada.\nIn the days that followed the announcement, the internet has been awash with hilariously horrified competitors, who appear to be having a full-on Canadian meltdown at the thought of losing Roll Up The Rim cups.\nOh, Canada.\n#COVID19: Muahaha wash your hands!Canada: Common sense.COVID19: DONT TRAVEL!Canada: Honestly had no plans.COVID19: Roll up the rim is CANCELLED.Canada: pic.twitter.com/ITw6ipAE4R— Andy (@_rallycap) March 7, 2020\nIf you’ve ever wondered how much Tim Hortons is deeply ingrained into Canadian culture, this will give you some idea.\nResponding to the news, one devastated Canadian tweeted, “Me Yesterday: A virus that kills 2% can't end civilization."\nThey added, "Me Today Learning They Cancelled Tim Hortons Roll Up The Rim: IT'S THE F*CKING APOCALYPSE, GRAB YOUR HOCKEY STICKS AND GET READY TO FIGHT FOR YOU LIVES!!!"\nAnother joked, “Canada has cancelled roll up the rim. [It's] officially a pandemic."\nA third took a break from a total emotional meltdown to tweet, “Tim Hortons has cancelled roll up the rim because of coronavirus and DEAR GOD THIS TRULY IS THE END OF DAYS PEOPLE."\nMe Yesterday: A virus that kills 2% can't end civilization.Me Today Learning They Cancelled Tim Hortons Roll Up The Rim: IT'S THE FUCKING APOCALYPSE, GRAB YOUR HOCKEY STICKS AND GET READY TO FIGHT FOR YOU LIVES!!!https://t.co/Eop3E25lnC— Ashley: Fujoshi Princess (@AshleyUncia) March 7, 2020\nTim Hortons has cancelled roll up the rim because of coronavirus and DEAR GOD THIS TRULY IS THE END OF DAYS PEOPLE— Lovely Potatoes (@robin_991) March 8, 2020\nAnd Canada has cancelled roll up the rim. officially a pandemic https://t.co/ByfjyiRsxS— mariah cameron (@mariahcameron) March 9, 2020\nPutting the announcement into sensible Canadian perspective, another Roll Up The Rim lover tweeted, “Half the flights for my upcoming trip have been cancelled, yet somehow I'm more upset about this news.”\nAnother simply added, “I’m fully expecting riots.”\nOne Twitter user shared a similar joke, writing, “Canadians are about to literally riot in the streets and set everything on fire.

She’s just too problematic and now she’s threatening Canadians with no free coffee so get it trending. #coronavirusisoverparty”\nTim Horton’s isn’t doing roll up the rim this year because of the coronavirus.

You’ll get through it.
