(Editors Note: The entire cut4beiber deal began as a hoax. 4Chan, online forum site had a post in which it was suggested that people start up fake Twitter accounts and tweet pics of self mutilation for Beiber to stop smoking weed. 4Chan.org is message board that is well known for hosting disturbing conversations in a 'no holds barred environment'. This 'practical joke' snowballed into an actual event- once again proving that the blind will follow like sheep. Social media is a playground for psychos and sadists, surf with caution -hb)
Fan girls around the world, ages 12-17, are literally cutting their wrists, posting the picture on Twitter, and @replying Justin Bieber with the hash-tag #Cut4Bieber, adding comments like "Please stop doing this Justin, or I won't stop bleeding for you. Till I drop dead." What sparked this horrific movement? The picture of Justin smoking a joint!
I've heard of ridiculous fan girls, but this is insane. If you read TMZ or read any gossip sites, you probably know that recently, eighteen year old pop sensation Justin Beiber was photographed smoking what seemed like a joint or a cigarette (definitely a joint). To the average person, it isn't that big of a deal. I laughed and gave him a thumbs up. The kid is my age; he's young and he's bound to do what young men do at this age, which is party. Unfortunately, it resulted in the disgusting #Cut4Bieber hash tag. It's been trending since this morning.
People on Twitter are pissed. Luckily, most of the tweets with this hash tag are tweets from people who are bewildered and concerned. Stars like Miley Cyrus are already responding to this disrespectful hash tag.
Miley tweets: "
#cut4bieber ? Cutting is NOT something to joke about. There are people who actually suffer from Self-harm, this is so disrespectful."
This situation is completely sad, selfish, and inconsiderate. These kids are not only harming themselves for someone who probably gives three shits about them, they are disrespecting so many girls and boys who actually have problems with self-harm and suicide. This situation angers me deeply, the blatant ignorance that is spreading among these vulnerable little girls and boys is beyond distasteful. As a person who knows people who still suffer from this kind of suicidal mentality, I am so sick to my stomach that this is actually happening. These repugnant fans need mental help.
Now who is to blame? Justin? He should have known being a huge superstar, he needs to be careful about who he is with and what he does around them. Are parents to blame? Letting your child as young as twelve to use social media without monitoring them or setting restrictions?
Still no statements from Justin. Though I don't know what Justin's reps or Justin himself will do or say regarding thousands of his fans physically hurting themselves. I feel like Justin won't and can't really do much. But I mean, he's a singer. I suggest Justin stop smoking, it'll harm his incredible girly vocals.
