Justin Bieber is an international idol for many females ages 6 and up. He can be considered a child star having started his sudden fame and carreer before he hit puberty at 12 with his song "Baby". The past few months have shown the teen idol getting into a few scraps now and then, and seeing him turned into a typical child star. Yahoo OMG reports on the supposed influence after TMZ released photos of Bieber smoking pot. In most states today, I believe, a small amount is not cause for legal concern, and it is also not a harder drug, very few people die or get addicted to marijuana regardless of what Janelle from Teen Mom 2 says.
The source links Biber's rapping best friend Lil Twist as the cause of his demise. The rapper was also who was pulled over in LA last year, causing the death of a pap trying to get a shot of the teen star (now 20s) getting arrested for bad driving having been driving Bieber's souped up and slick new Ferrari at the time. Supposedly, according to the TMZ report, complete with pictures, Twist was responsible for rolling the blunts. But as seen in the last picture (and having seen them myself living in a legal state), the thing in Bieber's hand does not look like a blunt, but rather a cigarello or normal cigarette. While a bad habit only due to health concerns, it is not illegal to be smoking over the age of 18, as Bieber is.
In my opinion what is more concerning is the resposnse his Belieber's are having and stance they are taken. What they are doing, cutting themselves, is far more deadly and dangerous than smoking a blunt is. This article says that it was a hoax created by 4chan which is not surprising. However, when creating hoaxes it is important to remember that there are gullible people out there and somewhere someone might take it a bit to seriously. And end up dead if they hit important arteries. Some tweets have surface under hashtags such as #cut4bieber and similar things, and most can clearly be seen as joking now. But one particular tweeter has stuck out and some of the responses on her Twitter and photos there appear real, as can be seen by scarring and the shade of red on paper towels and the like. She is not one of the original 4chan Tweeters, I would guess, because her account is still active.
I say its time 4chan spoke up, apologized and offered help to the girls, because that is a serious threat to there health. This needs to stop, and its time we stopped making jokes and offered the Beliebers help starting by tweeting them a number to call, who else is with me? Make a tweet, or an Instagram, or Tumblr-the hashtag has seen all media sites- post using the hashtags #cut4bieber #cuttingforbieber and #cuttingforjustin with the number to the Self-Harm/Self-Injury Safe Hotline: 877-995-5247 . Most of these tweets are jokes, but for those that aren't, they could use a friend right now and thats what we need to be and do. Lets get a better trend started, and start helping.
