Hackers from 4Chan fake teen suicide, blame Justin Bieber
The Twittersphere is up in arms over the news that a teenage girl fell victim to the self-harm Justin Bieber campaign.
Trolls were convincing young people to deliberately harm themselves in pop star’s name. But be warned, most of this story was faked and there’s a lot of double-crossing.
The plot was the creation of hackers from the forum 4Chan, who last night was also found to be planning to fake the death of a teenage girl and blame it on Bieber. Screenshots from chat program IRC show a secret meeting of members discussing the scheme.
