Yeah, that's not funny: Twitter trolls trend #CuttingForBieber

 
Yesterday, the renown pranksters at 4chan launched another mission that is anything but funny. In response to the photos of Justin Bieber allegedly smoking marijuana, they trended the topic #cuttingforBieber.

 

The hashtag was originally thought to be a legitimate effort started by true Beliebers who were disappointed by their favorite star’s actions. People started making off-color jokes about others who self harm and, well, let’s just say it got really ugly, really fast. Stars like Miley Cyrus spoke out against it, and eventually, a new trending topic emerged: #SelfHarmIsNotAJoke.

 

And that, babes, is the truth. Self harm is not a joke. It’s not just a way to let off steam when life is driving your crazy. Self harm, whether it comes in the form of scratching, cutting, burning, eating disorders or something totally different, is not a healthy way to deal with your feelings. There is always someone out there who can help you get things under control.

 

If you’re currently committing or considering self harm, or know someone who is, please call the Nine Line at 1-800-999-9999. It’s totally free and confidential, and will not appear on your phone bill. Please reach out—whether you call, talk to GL’s mods or staffers, or to a trusted friend or adult, there is always another path to take and someone who wants to help you down it.

 

With much love,

The Girls at GL
