Justin Bieber Fans Targeted On Twitter.

Justin Bieber has gone from teen YouTube singer to Celebrity stardom. And it seems the more famous he gets, the more the trolls come out of the woodwork and try to not only bring him down but make his fans look stupid.

Now as far as I am concerned stupid isn't dangerous. Well, now it is.

There seems to be a dangerous new game out there that some people seem to think is funny. They are urging kids to cut themselves to help stop Bieber from smoking weed.

How sick can you get? The scary thing is not the fact that these trolls are trying to manipulate our youngsters its the fact that they are succeeding. It's frightening.

Keeping Your Eyes Closed Won't Help, Justin!

Twitter You Are A Twit.

Is there something wrong with Twitter? Can't they catch these stupid and sick scams before they hit the public? Surely there must be someone sat somewhere in an office keep an eye on Twitter traffic?

I remember a few months ago I went onto Twitter to have a go at someone who was stealing my articles, and within a few hours I got 'silenced' by the powers that be! And I am an adult!

Getting back to the Justin Bieber saga, the actual Tweet that started it all off went something like this:

Operation Cut For Bieber - started this morning using a hash tag on Twitter that proved so successful it was trending nationwide within hours … "You stop using drugs and we'll stop cutting'' Was the message to young Bieber fans. You make this world meaningless and we've lost hope, was the tweet from @brittanyscrapma, one of several fake accounts.

This was followed by loads of photos showing kids cutting themselves. Hopefully fake photos.




Keeping It Real.

Meet your celeb for real, not online, its safer and you get to see the real Justin Bieber.  en.wikinoticia.com

Why Are People So Evil?

The start of the Internet, especially Twitter YouTube and Facebook have somehow scrapped the bottom out of the gene pool and sucked up the evil and sick scum to the surface and spat them in the direction of our poor kids.

Who, lets be honest, are pretty gullible when it comes to fame and celebrity these days. Justin Bieber says jump, they ask how high?

Lady Gaga calls them Little Monsters, and they dress accordingly. It's a bit like the Pied Piper effect. I will blow the whistle and you will follow me aimlessly and blindly to wherever I ask.

Well, its got to stop. If Twitter can't keep an eye out for these evil sick and very dangerous 'Jokes' then it really needs to close down. Simple as that.

In the meantime, teens have to learn to read between the lines. Sit back and think, would Justin Bieber really ask us to do that? Come on kids, don't be naïve. You have more street sense than that.

Use this philosophy in life and you will never go wrong.

Never Ever Trust Anybody Until They Can Prove It. If They Can't Then Tell Them To Go Jump!

Trust in yourself, if it sounds wrong then its a guarantee that it is wrong. Don't let those Trolls make you look stupid. Because you are not.

And a message to Justin Bieber. Get off your backside and go on the TV and tell your fans. If it wasn't for them, you wouldn't be where you are today. Go figure.

Very powerful and it is a reminder how people fall for almost anything. The whole scene today in the entertainment world leaves a lot to be desired. Girls used to swoon and now they cut themselves. The internet has changed our life forever..but we already know that. Well done. Voting UP. and sharing.

I think that all you can do is hit the report button on Twitter when you see something sick and if you have kids keep talking to them about what's going on out there on the web. How some of these people can sleep at night is beyond me and I don't even want to think about how their minds work. Unfortunately, they probably think its funny and that it makes them look clever!

OMG it's so sick that people are cutting themselves cause he's smoking! Justin needs to do something. If it comes to the choice about him and health of millions of his fans than it's not a choice. weather he has to stop doing drugs or do something that will stop this sick twisted game !

Bieber fans are vulnerable. I mean even when I was an N'Sync fan back in the day, the most we did were engage in heated debates about Justin vs. Nick and so on. I think the internet is something that at times is too powerful and this is definitely an instance of that. I hope parents and other adults can help steer these kids back in the right direction.

Yes, Nell, an d I'm on twitter, and they have supposedly official sites for people like Beiber and Timberlake, and it's only THOUSANDS of people with NO LIFE OF THEIR OWN, that mimmick the real sites. How creepy is that? Ohhh, my hair raises with how bizarre these people are.

Hi Nell, very timely hub. And a very important issue that we all should be aware. Thanks for discussing this because I am one of those not aware of this justin beiber weed vs cutting issue. These are things I really discuss with my son, though I know he is mature enough and told often enough not to just believe things in the internet or follow the trend. Parents should be made more aware and should really take the time to guide their kids. Sometimes, I can no longer believe what is happening , especially with the youth, or how crazy things are going, what with gang rape and killings becoming a common thing. It's scary.

teaches12345 3 years ago

This just makes me sick. Even if it is fake, the act of cutting is very impressionable to teens and excitement is the result. Hopefully, kids will realize it is just show and not a reality. The younger generation is of concern because they are always seeking new "highs" to excite their peers.


Larry Fields profile image

Larry Fields 3 years ago from Northern California

Hi Nell,

There's other scary stuff on the Internet. The closest parallels to the cutting are the websites that promote ill health, by encouraging anorexia.

If this doesn't already exist, some enterprising soul could set up a non-profit that blows the whistle on the scary stuff, and provides common-sense information to counter the self-destructive propaganda.

An online attorney friend has established her own nonprofit on privacy issues in the USA. If anyone is interested, I'll ask for her thoughts on setting up a be-nice-to-yourself nonprofit for teenagers and younger kids.

Voted up.

Hi Nell. OMG this is terrible. I don´t use twitter or facebook or anything similar and reading this I am so glad. Kids today do seem to have access to too many things and too many trends that can get them into serious trouble though and I´m glad I am the age I am. I´m sure kids didn´t self harm for whatever reason when I was a youngster, nor did they do drugs, carry weapons and get pregnant at 15,or if they did it was not to the same extent as these days, what is the world coming to ? You are correct in wondering why twitter and Justin are letting this go unchecked.

Nell, this was spot-on. I almost think social networking - FB, YouTube and Twitter should be an over18 thing or something. Not that that would really matter. 7 year olds have FB accounts and you're supposed to be 13 to join. I loved your line up there about social networking scraping the bottom of the gene pool - some nasty stuff comes out of it for sure.

Nell...Hello there....your hubs are always interesting and enjoyable. This one in particular, is also upsetting. (Somebody help adults with this sort of "crazy" stuff!) I took a deep breath....and have only 2 things to say. I love little Justin.....he's cute and sweet and I actually like his voice/music/songs....he's wholesome and I do believe he and his parents are tight.

The 2nd thing is....I am so very VERY happy and relieved to have "raising kids," in the distant past! Bless the parents of today. UP+++

If you are dumb enough to cut yourself for an internet trend (or for anything) then you deserve it. Also parents raging on about this subject , spend some time with your child and talk to him/her , maybe this way she won't feel the need to get approval online from a fan group by doing lots of insane stuff.

There are some evil malicious scum in the world. Sadly a lot of the trolls are kids themselves.

There is a case for licensing use of a computer, with a proper compulseary course in responsible usage. This may seem like a silly idea, but a computer can be a dangerous weapon.

So what if the trolls are trying to get them to do it ? It's your job to educate your kid to think for himself and not follow everything he sees on the internet like a sheep. I've grew up with the internet , saw many trends and trolls come and go , never had the urge to cut myself or do anything someone over the internet told me to do.

Hi Nell,

Deborah says that she would be happy to talk nonprofit with you. As an attorney, she knows the nonprofit laws in the USA. And as I had guessed, the nonprofit laws in England are somewhat different.

If you're interested in following up, Deborah says that it'd be more convenient for her if you joined free-association.net. This has the distinctions of being the world's smallest social networking site (that was not the original intention), and also the most respectful of privacy. Deborah's legal specialty is privacy, and she's on the Board of Directors.

Deborah and I are the most frequent posters there. Just click on her icon, and 'friend' her.

If you're game for a be-nice-to-yourself nonprofit project, you'd be the perfect person for the job (which does not exist yet). Has anyone (besides me) ever told you that you're a truly awesome writer?


Nell Rose profile image

Nell Rose 3 years ago from England Author

Why are you directing this at me? my son is 33! I taught my son everything to keep him safe, and he is really intelligent. I wrote this piece because i was annoyed at idiots trying to influence little kids of 12 and 13 years old. not all parents and that includes the father too, actually give a damn about what their kids do on the internet, they were the ones I was directing it at. just because you don't hurt yourself does not mean that some other vulnerable kid won't!

Some of our poor kids are confused enough due to hormonal changes. They sure don't need any negative help. They have a lot of pressure in school, especially now, with all the school shootings and psychopaths entering the schools. Heck, for that matter, they probably even go to school with some of these people.

Rayne123 3 years ago

Great hub, funny I see this hub now, I just finished putting my 2 cents in on yahoo about the comments on JB.

First of all it is sad that kids will follow the stars (for myself, I have no use for them, most are phoney and what we see is all an act. They lie for media attention then complain when they get it). IF they want to keep their fans all their lives they must be true themselves not to mention their fans.

Anyway as for kids believing this, it is sick, this world is messed up. Like get a life. These kids are brainwashed as bad as people brainwashed by false prophecies. (which some do worship as God)

You are right, if the person cannot monitor Twitter or any other so called chat community properly,then they need to let it go to someone else. I wish I had these sites, I would make so many changes.

If they are allowing children to do this, they have to remember it may very well mean their own children as well. They tend to forget this, but today no one has compassion they seem to care only for lies and deception it seems. (fame and fortune)

Cut themselves, what a tragedy. Look at that young girl that cried out for help on utube and then killed herself. Once again the world is silenced for 2 minutes and then back it goes.

As for JB, he has been a little more cocky and he better watch himself as karma bites you in the butt when you least expect it. However to come to his defense, he is 19, he is a normal teen, and he is a good performer. He knows how to work the stage and challenge himself.

He is part of the spotlight that the media targets and always will be. So he has to deal with it or ship out. He did admit the press wants him to lie for attention however it is the truth that will keep him going strong in the long run.

Right now his fans are young and he needs to show them support and that he is an inspiration. As for what is said on twitter/fb and such he does need to go in public and speak on this subject. Like you said its not a game and can turn into something more dangerous. Its sad teens still don't learn.

I would not even pay 2 cents for someones autograph or run in line to meet them, however if they were beside me talking then ok, no biggie.

But with JB, he is a teen and why should he act any different than any of our teens, he is not, but because he is a performer, he knows that this lifestyle comes with it.

So with that said, he has to take care of it and speak the truth. There are so many naïve kids out there its sad.

Right now JB is the most talked about, (probably not for long, but then the media will return), star in the world. He is probably one of the biggest pop stars of his age/time.

He will get negative remarks, but all performers do, and to keep his fans true and straight, especially young ones you need to do what is right in the eyes of fans that are taken in by all of this. It comes with the package.

Thanks for the hub

Rayne123 3 years ago

Yes me either I was never devoted to a celeb at all, nor idolized one. As you said we didn't have the technology, but if we did, in all honesty I don't think I would have been either.

WE sat at the supper table and talked with the family.

then we shared a room with no phone or tv. So yes I have to agree with you

The so-called social media culture is so twisted. I think it is good to help kids separate internet from real life in as many ways as possible, especially when they are young. We stressed to my son that he needed to be suspicious of everything he found there- from who he met, to news he read, to what Wikipedia says is the capital of Argentina.
