Apparently even teeny bop pop stars for 12 year old girls have a death threatening contingent among their fans:
So what would happen if Justin Bieber was deleted from the internet? After all, the young singer consumer product is a perpetual trending topic on Twitter, and his fans have already twice caused him to cancel a public appearance thanks to their, let’s say ‘devotion’. That combination (social network-based viral phenomenon plus mass hysteria) was bound to bubble over at some point. And so it has.
Greg Leuch has been receiving death threats ever since he invented and launched his ‘Shaved Bieber’ web application, that eliminates Bieber’s presence on the web by blocking out his photo and name wherever they appear. Yeah.
According to the Toronto Star, the first angry e-mail Leuch received was from someone in Switzerland. It read: “what you’re doing is going back to World War II all over again. Hitler wanting to erase Jews from society — you want to erase Justin Drew Bieber.”
Admit it, you thought this post wouldn’t have any references to Hitler. Newbie.
