Drake Bell has come out swinging against some of Hollywood’s biggest A-listers. An April 2 story by Celebuzz reveals that the star recently gave an interview where he called out Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga for not condemning the actions of their often overly rabid fans. Not surprisingly, this has lead to a backlash against Drake Bell by Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga’s fans.
In the interview, Drake Bell criticized Hollywood celebrities that encourage a mindset that emphasizes the clique among their followers. By inciting an us versus them mentality, this causes unnecessary hate and anger towards those that criticize the star. In his statements, Drake Bell accused Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber of setting “gross” examples for fans.
I don’t understand it. And what’s worse is artists like Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber don’t come out and say, 'I love having you as my fans, but you shouldn’t be acting this way.’ They just eat it all up, and I think it’s repulsive." - Drake Bell
Do you think Drake Bell has a point about Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga? Should they come out and tell their fans to cool it on the angry comments and accusations? Would it do any good if they did?
