On Monday, pranksters posing as Justin Bieberfans originated a sick online campaign that led #CutForBieber and #CuttingForBieber to trend on Twitter, circulating shocking images of fans with slashed and bloody wrists. The idea is to cut till Justin stops using drugs! The authenticity of the images however, is in question.
The fear that there may be those fans and followers of Bieber who would blindly follow the trend and hurt themselves is real enough. So is joking about something so serious. The issue of self-harm is for millions of young people, this hoax is particularly disgusting.
However, there are those online who do not take this seriously at all, in fact they have given the trend a new twist. Check it out!
