Justin Bieber’s name has been attached to another hoax, this time he did not originate it and his fans became the victims to the hoax. A ton of Biebers fans shaved their heads in solidarity to the pop star only to fin out it wasn’t true. The pranksters who started the rumor even made fake Tweets from Entertainment Tonight, Chris Brown, Kanye West and Bieber himself.
According to Zap2it,
“The tricksters faked a tweet from Entertainment Tonight’s official account, reading “Pop star Justin Bieber was diagnosed with cancer earlier this morning. Bieber fans are shaving their heads to show their support.”
They doctored a few photos of young girls with shaved heads to make it appear that they were holding signs reading “Bald for Bieber.” They then created false images of more tweets — one from Justin, thanking ET for their support, and tweets from Kanye West and Chris Brown offering Justin words of encouragement.
