Hey Bieber Fans! Did You Cut Off All Your Hair? Suckers.

In a perfect example of “don’t believe everything you read on the Internet,” a bunch of Bieber fans (the exact number is unknown) shaved their heads in solidarity over the Bieb’s touch of cancer.  

Well, guess what?  He’s fine.  It was a hoax.  And now lots of little girls look a lot more like Michael Chiklis.

The story goes like this.  Entertainment Weekly allegedly put out a tweet that read as follows:  “Pop Star Justin Bieber was diagnosed with cancer earlier this morning. Bieber fans are shaving their heads to show their support.”

The tweet came with a couple of pictures (via Biebs himself, allegedly) showing a couple of dans who had already cut off their hair in support.

But it was a joke.  There was no tweet from ET.  The people at 4chan were having fun with Photoshop.

 It’s going to be awkward for these girls at school on Monday, innit?

    It might just be a double hoax – there's very little evidence anyone actually shaved their heads, aside from the same two pictures being circulated everywhere (which are from a radio contest to win Bieber tickets from a couple years ago)
