Twitter Is Pleased With Justin Bieber Post-Roast — Even The Non-Beliebers Are Getting On Board
The Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber sure had its share of moments: it had many a laugh from comedians like Hannibal Burress, Natasha Leggero, Kevin Hart, Jeffrey Ross, Pete Davidson, and Chris D’Elia; hearty chuckles from unexpected guests like Shaquille O’Neal and Martha Stewart; disgusted groans from jokes that went way too far below the belt; and plenty of held-back tears from Bieber himself. Seriously, this roasting team really went for the jugular with Bieber, and I think we can say that the mission of this roast has been accomplished: Knock Biebs down a peg or thirty. But agreed to the Comedy Central Roast might be Bieber's best move yet, belieb it or not.
The Beliebers were at the ready to defend their idol from the start, and they were only too glad to gloat when Bieber took the stage himself. You see, after every roast, the roastee gets a chance to say a few words and basically cut right back at all the people who made fun of him or her for the past few hours. In this case, Bieber also told everyone he was sorry for being such a jerk for the past five years. After of a night of crying for their love of Justin, fans were happy with Bieber’s “soulful” apology to the world and those Beliebers hit Twitter in high numbers to react to Bieber’s rebuttal speech and sing his sweet, sweet praises. What was more interesting, though, was the non-Beliebers that Biebs may have been able to convert. Did all of these former Justin Bieber haters fall for yet another Scooter Braun production (don't tell me you didn't know that mega manager was behind this clever PR move)? Take a look at the tweets and decide for yourself.
These fans were just so excited that Bieber was about to take the stage
Some Beliebers were happy that Justin could give it back as good as he got
Many had nothing but praise and proud feelings for Biebs
Justin probably gained some new fans, here, too
Luckily, at least one person on Twitter knew that he didn't write that speech
Someone's got to be the reality check in the room, right?
