#Cut4Bieber Twitter Hashtag Encourages Kids To Cut Selves In Support Of Justin Bieber

This is got to be the dumbest, craziest and stupidest thing I have ever heard in my entire life! Kids on Twitter actually harming themselves in support of Justin Bieber! Kids are posting horrifying pictures of themselves (which I refused to post on thecount.com) — post mutilation in support of Justin Bieber and all because the singer was accused of smoking drugs…

If you’re on Twitter, there’s a good chance you’ve seen hashtags like #CuttingForBieber, #CutForBieber, and #Cut4Bieber spreading today, along with some disturbing pictures self-inflicted bodily harm.

Complex revealed that the cutting hashtag was sparked by the 4Chan board, where users sought to “get some little girls to cut themselves” by posting pictures of cutters on fake Twitter accounts and claiming that it was being done to get Justin Bieber to stop smoking weed. There’s even a set of instructions for how to spread the news on Twitter, Facebook, and fake news sites.

Sick stuff.

 
To say this is gone little too far is a huge understatement…
