'Shameless' Season 11 Episode 1: Did Lip get coffee for Tami in someone's used cup amid pandemic? Fans cringe

Spoilers for 'Shameless' Season 11 Episode 1
It's been a while since we've seen the ol' Gallagher ingenuity really come into play, at least as far as Lip (Jeremy Allen White) is concerned. Times being as they are, however, money is getting tighter than ever and Lip's going to have to find creative ways to cut corners to keep his not-quite-wife, Tami (Kate Miner) happy. Lip's latest method of doing so may have just gone a step too far and fans can't believe he did what he did in the middle of a pandemic.
Tami may have her eye on her and Lip's finances but she can't go long without her special, high-priced coffee — at least, she thinks she can't. Lip is convinced that cheap coffee from the convenience store next door is just as good and he uses a discarded coffee cup from the high-priced store to store the cheap stuff in. "I can’t believe Lip really took Tami her coffee in a USED cup in the middle of a pandemic," wrote a fan.
"The audacity of this man we're in the middle of a pandemic Phillip," wrote another. "now Lip wtf are you doing," wrote this viewer. "Ew Lip. did he really just f**king do that? and in the pandemic? I’m cringing so hard," said one tweet.

Even his co-actors couldn't help but pass judgment, as Noel Fisher, who plays Mickey Milkovich on the show, jokingly tweeted, "Lip is all about Covid-19 sanitation." Fans are concerned for Tami's health, especially as she mentioned she has already had Covid-19 in the 6 months between Season 10 and 11.
"So Tami had Covid-19 already and Lip is happy to give her a used coffee cup. Because that makes sense," wrote one exasperated fan. "This show has done some f**ked up sh*t but that's definitely top 5 lol. Poor Tami," wrote another. "Lip could have washed the cup out," noted one viewer.

Some fans, however, couldn't be more proud to see their Lip return to form. "I love Lip hustling this episode. He did as he was asked by Tami but he did it the Gallagher way and for that, I couldn't be prouder of him," wrote one. "I like seeing a little of the Old Lip back," wrote another.

It's moments like this that the fans have been waiting for as the pandemic raged on. The Gallaghers are each dealing with the pandemic too but they're most definitely doing it their way.
The next episode of 'Shameless' airs on December 13 on Showtime.
