Justin Bieber’s ‘Stolen’ Video Hoax Angers Some Fans

Filed in Gather Celeb News Channel by on October 13, 2012 0 Comments

Some Justin Bieber fans were amused by their idol’s latest prank of faking a theft of his so-called personal videos in Tacoma, Washington. Others not so much. In fact some beliebers are mad as hell, and they’re expressing their anger on Twitter. Will this cause the Biebs to lose some of his devoted fans?

Last week, Selena Gomez’s “Boyfriend” concocted and pulled off what may be his greatest prank yet. He caused a Twitter frenzy by ‘pretending his laptop had been stolen during a stop on his “Believe” tour, creating a fake Twitter account to fake extortion threats about releasing personal videos — all to hype the release of his “Beauty And A Beat” music video.’ Now, in the aftermath of those dizzying events, his fans are beginning to weigh in on JB’s latest personal version of Punk’d.

Some beliebers laughed along with their idol at what they obviously agreed was a well-played prank.

“The way Justin Bieber released his Newest Music *Video was so smart and innovative!” one admirer Tweeted.

Alas, others were not so easily amused. They weren’t amused at all.

“What kind of person pretends their things are stolen, ‘leaks’ personal videos, then post their own directed video?” wrote one belieber sarcastically. “Oh, Justin Bieber.”

“Thanks @justinbieber for trying to make Tacoma look ghetto #WhatATool” complained one disgruntled (ex?) belieber who obviously comes from Tacoma, Washington.

Some beliebers admitted openly that they were withdrawing from the JB fan base because they were disgusted with their idol for perpetrating what they considered a “scam.”

“I used to like Justin bieber,” wrote one, “but after watching his new music video I’m just kinda like blahhhh over it”

Ouch.

“justin bieber is the reason i have trust issues” another fan tweeted sadly.

Yet another fan mused sarcastically: “JUSTIN BIEBER MADE UP SOME FAKE TWITTER TO PROMOTE HIS NEW MUSIC VIDEO CLEVER JUSTIN CLEVER”

So, there you have it. What do you think of Justin’s latest real-life episode of Punk’d. Was it clever or totally uncalled for?
