Justin Bieber fans were shocked to learn that the pop star was arrested early Thursday morning for drag racing and driving under the influence in South Florida. Predictably, the story has gone viral, becoming one of the most tweeted stories of the day, and the top search on Google.
But how are the Beliebers reacting to the news? Not with the apprehension and disappointment that you might think given his transgressions.
Instead, the hashtag, #PrayForJustin, has blown up on Twitter, showing the 19-year-old singer undying support, despite the crimes he committed.
#PrayForJustin everyone makes mistakes. No ones perfect so who are you to judge?— DontTrust2Easily (@TonyaJobb) January 23, 2014
Non-fans however, were not as supportive of the situation, highlighting the issues in supporting Bieber, despite his actions.
