Several months ago those working for Internet troll nest /b/ set up a campaign convincing fans that their icon, Justin Beiber, had cancer and that they ought to cut their hair to show their support.
Since the operation was somewhat successful, 4chan users decided to see how far they could push Beiber fans and came up with a new operation- Operation Cut For Beiber.
Launching this morning with hashtags like #cutforbeiber and #cuttingforbeiber, many fans are now cutting their wrists in opposition to Beiber’s supposed weed smoking habit.
“You stop using drugs and we’ll stop cutting. You make this world meaningless and we’ve lost hope,” tweeted by @brittanyscrampa- or possibly by a dummy account set up by /b/.
Whether or not all the images posted online are images of Beiber fans actually cutting themselves is unknown.
If true, it is very sad that there are people out there that are dumb enough to mutilate their bodies as soon as some trend pops up online.
