Justin Bieber Fan Reactions to Arrest on Twitter Are Alarmingly Misguided
Unless you've been living in the deepest caverns of the earth, you probably know that Justin Bieber was arrested Thursday morning for DUI, drag racing, resisting arrest, and driving with an expired license. Wow, that's a mouthful. After taking a smug mugshot and getting released on $2,500 bail, Bieber and his father were spotted hitting up the bar, sitting at a VIP table surrounded by bottles. Mind you, Bieber is 19 and was just arrested for a drunk driving. Gold star for parenting to you, Papa Bieber.
While Bieber has been immersed in his latest tomfoolery, following his "Egg-Gate" scandal and arrest of his pal, Lil Za, the ever-faithful Beliebers have taken to Twitter to express their undying love and commitment to the pop singer in the form of a trending hashtag, #WeWillAlwaysSupportYouJustin.
This is alarming for many reasons, most prominently because Justin was just, you know, ARRESTED for breaking many laws. Perhaps they got the definitions for hero and felon mixed up? This latest arrest should be the clearest indication to the tween tweeters that the Biebs is simply no good, but alas, they continue to shower him with affection, calling him their hero, a victim of fame, and paying tribute to him through the grandest of gestures — like a photo of a mob of fans spelling out his name.
Here are some of the most alarming tweets we have seen thus far from the Beliebers. You might want to sit down for these.

Correction: drunk driving harms lives, not saves them.
retweet if you will too. through thick and thin. through rock and stone. @justinbieber #WeWillAlwaysSupportYouJustin http://t.co/Hwk31FbUNZ— (@kingjustinbi) #
Pretty sure rocks and stones are the same things.
Good luck, Justin fans. His actions are probably going to get harder and harder to defend.
