No really…nice move. All Justin Bieber fan[atics] know what the deal is, so I’ll explain to the rest of the world.
This past weekend Bieber used his Twitter-leverage and posted a tweet “everyone call me [number] or text” – that went out to his 4.5 million followers.
As crazy as that sounds, because obviously Justin ain’t THAT crazy…the number wasn’t even his.
Irregardless, the person the number did belong to got his line blown up from Bieber’s fans.
Bieber deleted his tweet shortly after publishing it, but it was widely retweeted, thus leading to continual chaos over the weekend.
Now here’s the back-story for some perspective:
Gawker reports that the victim was Detroit teen Kevin Kristopik, who deleted his Twitter account shortly after tweeting, “Thanks for giving out my # @justinbieber.”
Apparently Kristopik hacked Bieber’s friend Ryan Butler’s phone to uncover Bieber’s phone number, then sent Bieber a text !!!
A couple of weeks ago, Kristopik tweeted, “im the one who hacked ryan and got justins #.”
In a retaliatory move – Bieber then tweeted the teen’s number to get back at him. Damn Justin that’s good !!
Below is a video Kristopik uploaded to YouTube showing his iPhone getting hammered with text messages and phone calls looking to speak to Bieber. He reportedly received 26,000 text messages – Kristopik’s father was quoted by the Free Press saying, “If it costs us $2,000 or $10,000, it’s out of line.”
What do you think folks ? Any harm and foul in his actions ?
