Miley Cyrus & Justin Bieber Are the Unfortunate Targets of "Disco Demolition 2" — VIDEO
I’m not a huge fan of Justin Bieber myself, but some baseball fans decided to take their hatred for the singer to a new level at a Charleston RiverDogs minor league game on Saturday. Fans recreated Disco Demolition Night — a night in 1979 when disco records were blown up on the field between games of a Chicago White Sox and Detroit Tigers doubleheader, you know, because disco sucks — when they blew up Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber memorabilia.
The event, which was deemed “Disco Demolition 2: You Better Belieb It,” allowed fans to purchase tickets to the baseball game for $1 if they brought items associated with either of the two singers. Oddly enough, the amount of CDs, posters, bags, and cups (cups? really?!) that people brought was overwhelming. It kind of makes me question whether they’re really Miley and Bieber haters or if they had to sneak into their children's rooms at night to steal some of these items.
“Like so many, we have taken special exception to Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus’s music along with his numerous run-ins with the law and her controversial performances,” RiverDogs general manager Dave Echols said in a statement. “’Disco Demolition 2’ is dedicated to the eradication of their dread musical disease, like the original Disco Demolition attempted to do. We are going to take Bieber and Cyrus’s merchandise and memorabilia, put it in a giant box, and blow it to smithereens. It is all in good fun, and we guarantee there won’t be a forfeit of a game.”
The last part of his statement refers to the fact that the White Sox were forced to forfeit the second game of their doubleheader folowing the original Disco Demolition due to unsuitable playing conditions after fans had stormed the field and pieces of vinyl had exploded all over the place. No biggie.
With banners like #BLASTBIEBER and “Stop Beliebing” decorating the stadium, fans placed their Bieber and Cyrus items into a fake boombox (that’s a portable cassette and CD player for all you youngins). By the end of the night, the fire was lit and all the merchandise inside the box was destroyed with a nice little firework show to go along with it while screams of joy were heard throughout the venue.
If Disco Demolition 3 ever happens, you can count me in, as long as we keep my girl Miley out of it. The Biebs? No problem.
