During a discussion regarding the NSA and phone record privacy, MSNBC Host Andrea Mitchell interrupts former Congresswoman Jane Harman to report breaking news regarding let latest news on the Justin Bieber Arrest. News is news, I guess.
The Bieber legal troubles seem to be unending. While still embroiled in a civil suit for egging a neighbors house, the Biebs was pulled over early Thursday morning. Apparently, going 60 MPH in a 30 MPH zone is a crime, and of course the responding officers smelled alcohol and described him as in a "stupor". Sources have yet to confirm if additional drugs were a factor in his arrest. The 19-year-old is currently in holding while they test his blood for illegal substances and set bail.
In the wake of the controversial hashtag #cutforbieber trending on Twitter this week, online women's magazine xoJane spoke with a 15-year-old Justin Bieber fan named Lianne, asking for her thoughts on the hoax. As someone who had struggled with self harm, Lianne wrote that it makes her sick to think an anonymous group of people would want to make young kids hurt themselves over liking a singer. She urged 4chan users to not only pick on someone their own size, but to think of their younger sisters or future daughters when concocting future hoaxes and reminded the posters that making a 15-year-old girl cry will never harm the Biebs himself.
First: Anonymous 4Chan trolls posted a fake screenshot of a tweet by verified "Entertainment Tonight" that "confirmed" Justin Bieber had leukemia. Tweets from Kanye, Nicki Minaj, and Chris Brown seemed to support the news.
Then: Beliebers began posting pics and vids of themselves with their heads shaved in a global show of support hashtagged #BaldForBieber.
Miraculously: The rumors were false and the Biebs is just fine, and now supposedly, a bunch of tweens have no hair.
