Oh, those hilarious Internet trolls on 4chan. Let me tell you about “Operation Cut For Bieber”, a campaign designed to prank die-hard Bieber fans by encouraging them to self-harm.

When it surfaced that teen panty sensation Justin Bieber was turning to the devil’s lettuce for a bit of a toke here and there, allegedly members of the 4Chan community came up with a brilliant idea to steer die-hard Bieber fans into convincing the singer to stop using drugs… by cutting themselves and posting images of it on Twitter.

To add credibility to the hoax, the 4chan pranksters posted false photos of sliced arms and wrists using fake Twitter accounts under the hashtag: #CuttingforBieber. They claimed they would cut their wrists as an effort to stop Bieber from smoking weed.

One example: “You stop using drugs and we’ll stop cutting. You make this world meaningless and we’ve lost hope #CuttingForBieber”

It appears as if the prank has worked. Some Bieber die-hards actually are supporting the “campaign” and posting their own wrist and arm-cutting pics on Twitter and other social networks in response, all in an effort to get their boygod to stop using weed. Oh the irony.

Normally, this would seem harsh, irresponsible and uncalled for. But remember, these are Justin Bieber fanatics slicing themselves up, after all. They’re already brain-dead and high to begin with. 4chan are doing the world yet another favour.

Then again, I kinda feel like more social progress would be made if everyone else started cutting in protest of Justin Bieber performing another sickening show like this:

You go guys. #CuttingForBieber

    Some cutters are genuinely victims of significant trauma and cut specifically to self-harm. Others do it as a manipulaive, and therefore, aggressive act.

    Beiber is a pretty, almost effeminate, young man. It’s guaranteed to bring out the aggressive bully in some women.

      Bottom line, parents should Not bring their children under the age of 13 to a 19 year old Entertainer’s concert. What will happen when the lyrics become explicit? Justin is growing up unlike his fans that are as young as 6 years old.

    Andrew Beato, I watched the video you posted and do not see anything that would provoke someone to do anything to themselves so I am unclear about your point. If you would be so kind, please explain. I, as a parent, feel that if a person is not intellectually mature and of the proper age then the parent’s are to blame for whatever behavior their children are exhibiting! To place blame on Justin Beiber is a way for the parent’s to deflect their responsibility in perpetuating this situation. What makes people think that Beiber is a “child” entertainer? I suppose it may be the same people that thought Brittney Spears was a “child” entertainer! Kids/children do not understand that Beiber is an Entertainer and when he speaks to the audience he is going to say something that incorporates the Title of the next song on his Play List into the sentence. Adults understand this and get it when he says it but kids that are intellectually immature and underage do Not! Young kids have No business at concerts for this reason and for the incident that was perpetuated by a group which could have and/or will lead to death! Parent’s need to parent!

    Two words. Sex sells. Disney has its ways of gearing the youth towards sex, they flooded the screens with female stars and now they are with male ‘stars’. And cuttin themselves is rather a personal thing, not cos the internet tells you to do it cos a popstar who must have been castrated and who has probably tone a hell of a lot more than smoke some weed will stop smoking weed. Maybe now Mickey wants to literally bathe in blood! Were those american girls in the pics?
