This is what happens when you combine a nation of extremist tween fans and a small group of haters that want to mess with them.
Following his recent weed smoking scandal, Justin Bieber—the man-boy with a die-hard following of fans willing to do just about anything for him—is inspiring a new trend: #cutforbieber.
Messages featuring the hashtag like “We hurt alongside you, Justin!” and “You stop using drugs and we'll stop cutting. You make this world meaningless and we've lost hope” have flooded the Twittersphere in response to photos published by TMZ showing the boy wonder smoking what appears to be marijuana.
Sadly, “#cutforbieber” has already trended nationwide.
The source of this shocker of an Internet operation is NOT the most disturbed and deranged of the Belieber army, but instead the lurking trolls that are 4chan users who want nothing more than to cause a ruckus within J.B.’s underdeveloped fanbase.
Last year, a similar hate mission called “#BaldForBieber” was launched in response to a faux report that Justin had been diagnosed with cancer.
Bieber has yet to comment on the Internet shenanigans via his own account.
Meanwhile, rapper The Game has different, more wholesome advice for Justin: smoke MORE weed…
Via ambush TMZ interview, the L.A. native has urged his Canadian sugar pop star counterpart to be safe and get a medical marijuana card.
“Let's keep it real. There's a lot of people in high positions ... who smoke a little weed sometimes,” said Game. “I'm not saying it's okay ... but [Bieber] made a mistake. Forgive him. Let him go through the growing pains of his life.”
Also, Miley Cyrus got in on the conversation, retweeting this message from @OfficcialCANCER:
“#cutforbieber? Cutting is NOT something to joke about. There are people who are actually suffering from self-harm, this is so disrespectful.”
Agreed. Fans—if you really need us to tell you, which hopefully you don’t—#cutforbieber is NOT a good idea.
