I am absolutely outraged!
#CutForBieber is trending on Twitter, which I personally think is extremely offensive.
First, being such a huge role model to so many young people, this kid really wants to start watching his behaviour in public. Punching paparazzi and smoking weed really is not the best impression to give.
Seeing as his fans want him to stop this you may think it's good. However, in order to make him stop, they are harming themselves. I have seen all over Twitter, "if you stop doing drugs, we'll stop doing this!" And after looking on Bieber's Twitter account, there were tweets made after this trend started with nothing to do with the trend. Really emphasises how much he cares.
It really does aggravate and offend me that so many young people think that this is okay. Self harming is already an extremely taboo subject in today's society which so many people know very little about, and putting this kind of light on it is just going to make matters even worse for those who do or have suffered with the problem.
These young people aren't taking into account that posting such pictures can be a trigger for others who suffer from the problem. Also, the problems this may cause for them themselves! With the possibility of scarring, severe injury or in worst cases, death, all of this for one pop star seems very superficial.
When people used to make fun of Bieber, I'll admit that I wasn't a fan of his music, but I didn't know the person so what's the point in talking about him. Now, I really couldn't care less.
I don't care if he doesn't read it, but Justin Bieber, sort your act out. Seriously, this is getting too far!
