Miley Cyrus to Justin Bieber fans: Stop cutting yourselves!

Yesterday, the internet pretty much caved in on itself reacting to Justin Bieber‘s marijuana scandal, to the point where you guys damn near broke our servers to learn more about how the precious maple saviour has partaken in Satan’s salad. So I’m going to say this as plainly as possible: IT’S JUST WEED. We may not be Bieber’s biggest fans, but he didn’t do anything wrong by smoking weed. It’s an all-natural substance, and despite its legal status, it’s probably one of the healthier vices out there, so everyone just quit freaking out. It’s just a toke.

Anyway, yesterday some internet trolls managed to trick a bunch of Bieber’s more impressionable fans into cutting themselves for the sake of getting Bieber to quit weed, using the hashtag #Cut4Bieber. What would cutting themselves accomplish? Literally nothing, but kids do stupid things to get attention and this was one of them. So Miley Cyrus took to Twitter to tell Bieber’s fans to stop slicing themselves open for no reason whatsoever. Via TMZ

The hashtag #cut4bieber has become the top U.S. trend on Twitter … after people began posting photos featuring bleeding arms, allegedly the result of “cutting” by disappointed fans looking to pressure the singer into giving up his pot habit. In fact, someone even started a website encouraging Bieber fans to cut themselves and post photos of the carnage …. until Bieber gives up marijuana for good. But moments ago, Miley Cyrus weighed in on the troubling trend — retweeting a messaging saying:

I know how much the internet enjoys earnestness, so I’m going to keep this short: If you’re self-harming, for any reason, seek professional help. Self-mutilation isn’t just some quirky little thing people do for shits and giggles, that’s a real psychological problem. There’s no good reason why anyone should cut themselves recreationally, especially not for some dumb boy.
