    >Youth icon apologizes

    Wang Yuan, a popular youth icon, expressed regret and determination to behave himself on his social media account on Tuesday after footage and photos revealing him smoking indoors went viral online.

    Wang, 18, was snapped smoking at a Beijing restaurant on Monday night.

    It is forbidden to smoke indoors according to municipal regulations on tobacco control.

    Wang carries wide influence as a youth icon, and his violation of regulations has triggered heated discussion online.

    Wang issued an apology on his Weibo account, saying he had set a "bad example" and would accept any punishment handed down to him for the incident.

    >Petition for GoT remake

    Game of Thrones is finished for good, and some fans have been voicing their dissatisfaction with how the final season is playing out.

    Some are so unhappy, in fact, it seems they want to convince HBO to remake the entire season 8 by replacing Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss with new writers at the helm.

    A fan named Dylan D started a Change.org petition asking HBO to redo the entire season.

    The petition, titled "Remake Game of Thrones season 8 with competent writers," has reached more than 1,092,000 signatures as of this writing.

    "Benioff and Weiss have proven themselves to be woefully incompetent writers when they have no source material (i.e. the books) to fall back on," Dylan D. posted. "This series deserves a final season that makes sense. Subvert my expectations and make it happen, HBO!"



    >Canyon overrun by fans

    Iceland has been forced to close one of its most idyllic canyons after it became overrun by Justin Bieber fans taking pictures to replicate a music video he filmed there.

    Featured in a Justin Bieber music video in 2015 called "I'll Show You", which has been viewed 444 million times, the canyon has attracted countless fans over the years.

    Over the past eight years the number of tourists visiting Iceland has increased exponentially, from just 600,000 in 2011 to 2.3 million last year.

    Since the "I'll Show You" video, the Environment Agency of Iceland estimates that 1 million people have visited the site. Because the canyon became inundated by fans, a decision was made to close it to visitors for all but five weeks of the year.

    On March 11, China suspended the commercial operations of all Boeing 737 Max jets.
