While the talented Justin Bieber confirmed on Twitter today that he will be hosting and performing on “Saturday Night Live” this February, News.com.au reported this Wednesday, Jan. 9, that the Biebs has remained silent in the face of a dangerous “Cut4Bieber” Twitter trend in which girls were allegedly cutting themselves to have the “Believe” star stop smoking pot. News.com’s sources confirmed this week that 4Chan started the hoax, and most recently this Tuesday these internet “trolls” were hoping to fake a teen suicide from the alarming hashtag, blaming the death on Justin Bieber himself.
After Justin Bieber hinted earlier this week that he might be hosting “SNL,” his millions of Twitter fans quickly spread the news. This afternoon, the Biebs confirmed that he would not only be hosting February 9’s episode of the hit show, but performing that night as well. Yet News.com noticed this week that the successful pop singer has stayed quiet despite the public outcry against 4Chan’s Twitter trending hoax, “Cut4Bieber.”
Asking young girls to cut themselves to stop Justin Bieber from smoking weed — first reported in early January after photos leaked of the Biebs allegedly smoking a blunt — the “Cut4Bieber” hashtag nonetheless was a trending topic on Twitter earlier in the week.
Now, sources confirm that these internet “trolls” were planning on taking this horrific hoax a step further through a fabricated death. According to News.com.au, the 4Chan forum was planning to take to Twitter and fake a teen suicide of a girl who took part in cutting herself for Bieber.
In light of his recent breakup with Selena Gomez, the alleged pot smoking photos, and this latest “Cutting 4 Bieber” Twitter hoax, Justin Bieber seems to be focusing instead on his music and the release of his new album, “Believe Acoustic.”
