#CutForBieber Hashtag Started on 4Chan to Get Justin Bieber Fans to Cut Themselves


If you’re on Twitter, there’s a good chance you’ve seen hashtags like #CuttingForBieber, #CutForBieber, and #Cut4Bieber spreading today, along with some disturbing pictures self-inflicted bodily harm.

Complex revealed that the cutting hashtag was sparked by the 4Chan board, where users sought to “get some little girls to cut themselves” by posting pictures of cutters on fake Twitter accounts and claiming that it was being done to get Justin Bieber to stop smoking weed. There’s even a set of instructions for how to spread the news on Twitter, Facebook, and fake news sites.

Sick stuff.

UPDATE: There is now a Cut4Bieber.com.

    I’m sorry but that is pretty funny. If the retarded children of today start hacking them selves to pieces over this I wont shed a tear that’s less morons in the world.

  • Craig

    whats sad is people actually bought into this….

  • Beth C

    It’s not ‘funny’ at all. Self harm is NOT a joke. Seeing this trend and seeing these images all over twitter can be really triggering to some people. Self harming can be very addictive. It is *NOT* something to joke about and it is DEFINITELY not something to wish upon a young girl or boy.

  • OP

    this never happened. and this article should not be here.

    OP is a faggot

  • Jimmy R.

    I agree with Joey. It’s their fault they cut themselves.
    Also, this is probably fake.

  • 9Gagreporter

    as i remember it started at the 9Gag interweb page. Some who call them self “le 9Gag Army” invented it.

  • Jim Rustle

    Thats straight up busta.

  • BruPunk

    Not 4chan’s fault. Some guy named Tom Denman started.

    What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.

  • Lol.

    Lollll, let the retards of the world take themselves out. Shows how great their parents are to raise such a nice child. All this is due to bad parenting of the new generations not the kids faults, they inherited the stupid gene.

  • lolling

    Tom Denman I’d find your post annoying and I’d hate you if you weren’t so retarded, I feel sorry for you or will your spies come and kill me in hundreds of different ways? And you’re probably quoting some dreadful action film hero who you thought was cool and clever,if you’re as stupid as you sound I pity you.

  • Hot Stuff


  • http://9gag Tom Denman

    @lolling I don’t give a fuck who you are or where you live. You can count on me to be there to bring your fucking life to a hellish end. I’ll put you in so much fucking pain that it’ll make Jesus being nailed to a cross in the desert look like a fucking back massage on a tropical island. I don’t give a fuck how many reps you have or how tough you are IRL, how well you can fight, or how many fucking guns you own to protect yourself. I’ll fucking show up at your house when you aren’t home. I’ll turn all the lights on in your house, leave all the water running, open your fridge door and not close it, and turn your gas stove burners on and let them waste gas. You’re going to start stressing the fuck out, your blood pressure will triple, and you’ll have a fucking heart attack. You’ll go to the hospital for a heart operation, and the last thing you’ll see when you’re being put under in the operating room is me hovering above you, dressed like a doctor. When you wake up after being operated on, wondering what ticking time bomb is in your chest waiting to go off. You’ll recover fully from your heart surgery. And when you walk out the front door of the hospital to go home I’ll run you over with my fucking car out of no where and kill you. I just want you to know how easily I could fucking destroy your pathetic excuse of a life, but how I’d rather go to a great fuckng length to make sure your last remaining days are spent in a living, breathing fucking hell. It’s too late to save yourself, but don’t bother committing suicide either… I’ll fucking resuscitate you and kill you again myself you bitch-faced phaggot. Welcome to hell, population: you

    This comments are amazing. Quite a tutorial on how the internet works.

  • Confusion
  • arrowmemering

    i swear on me fukin mums life 9gag should be shut down for this shit
    worst website ever look at the influence they have on kids

  • WOWstupidity

    this is natural selection. if your stupid enough to do it…

  • Patron

    Confusion, what have you started?? lol this comments thread is a war zone

  • gagsnmemes

    What?! 4chan is stealing all of 9gag’s credit and glory like they always do! unoriginal fucks steal all our OC. #9gagarmy #monkeytrouble

  • Steiner Ludwig

    Just a question, why is it the fault of the internet? Or any side? 9gag or 4chan? Bitch please,

    you just try to blame someone else!
    These kids are just to stupid, its PURE STUPIDITY! When they want to cut themself, thats fine, its theyr buisness not ours! Bad influence…stop blaming others.

  • Confusion

    This is what happens when you talk about Internet boards on the Internet.

  • Confusion

    Agree that it’s stupid, but the collective influence of these Internet subcultures that exist on forums or message boards or whatever equates to a lot of power, and to use their influence to try to get little girls to cut themselves over an obsession with a pop star is, to me, just as stupid. There is a lot of terrible shit going on in the world, and the Internet can have a huge impact. Instead, some of the smartest people who understand it the best are using it for really malicious means.

  • lolling

    I think this tom denman has some kinda perverted sexual deviation going on with threatening people with violence across the web. There’s probably forums for people like you Tom, support is out there your just need to look for it.
    How about you ask your doctor or buy a one way ticket to Switzerland if you get my drift.. ;)

  • Jimmie

    guys this wasnt 4chan, someone from 9gag came and put that thread up right after the whole thing started, its le 9gag armys fault

  • Seriously

    Why are we even blaming 4chan for this? Most people already know we did it and it was fun as hell /9gag

  • offbeat

    i fear for the future that’s full of people who think this is a good form of ‘natural selection.’ 12 year old girls are rational and mature… said no one ever.

  • harvey rhustler

    can’t beleive these 9gaggers.. a fucking teenager actually died from this stupid hoax.. : http://9gag.com/gag/6279113/

  • whatthefuckisthisshit?

    What? The? Fuck? You think its funny that people hurt themselves? You think peoples lives are just little toys you can play with? I hope someone kicks your fucking ass. Maybe it will wake you 9gang/4chan up and see that everyone has a life and everyone has a purpose. Making a little joke about someone is all fine and dandy, but when it takes away lives it makes you a very sick person. I pity you, you need mental help. If this is what you call “funny” then I’d hate to see what hilarious is for you. These are little girls doing this. 12 year old little girls are not rational or mature to understand this kind of stuff. They still think death is a cute little myth for the young. It cant happen to them, until it actually does. I hope the one responsible for this gets a serious punishment for this. Its one thing if a 30 year old women to do something like this, that bitch would be dumb as fuck. Yet, a little girl? Seriously? Your going to say she deserved it? What if that was her only roll model? Her parents were never there to teach her right and wrong and she harms herself. Which leads to her killing herself. Stupidity had nothing to do with that. Douchebags did. These disturbibg posts should be taken down. I think i’ve made my point. Rant over!
    Burn in hell assholes!

    Easy way to avoid this kind of tragic shit? Start breaking down and removing the stigma around marijuana. The science is out there. The research has been done. The studies are over the the papers from major medical institutions have been published. Weed doesn’t kill brain cells, doesn’t impact development of the brain in adolescents, has no physically addictive compounds, and when consumed in a responsible way wont damage your lungs. Weed doesn’t make you lazy, lazy people tend to enjoy weed, but plenty of productive motivated individuals smoke.

    Unless you have a preexisting genetic disposition towards schizophrenia (very, very small percentage of the population) then its a safe drug and the stigma around it is a cloud of bullshit.

    And i dont even smoke. Im just curious and literate.

    This whole thing (misconceptions about weed aside, im referring to the cutting) is really, really tragic.

  • Knickers McAssfondle, Lord

    This is fucking hilarious and i hate to admit that 9fag did good this time.
    Hope beaver keeps on getting caught smoking reefer so that his shitty carreer finally comes to an end.

  • Age 20

    yummy copypasta going on here.

  • 9fag

    9fag normally steals from reddit and especially 4chan… but they did something original for once and look… why dont we leave the dark shit to 4chan (the dark part of the internet) where it belongs

  • Chips Hamden

    It was 9Gag, I can confirm this.
    They blamed 4chan for no reason.

  • http://pigeonsandplanes.com @tom denman

  • SK

    I hope there never comes a day that P&P’s comment section becomes this retarded on the regular.

    Props to you Con for being able to have expanded the blog to virtually nothing to something this big, but you’ve gotta admit this expansion in the user base has really lead to some annoying/stupid people in the threads recently.
