(Newser) Twitter—or at least all the teenage girls on Twitter—loves (really, really loves) Justin Bieber. Until he goes and gets himself photographed making out in the back of a car. Then, those same teenage girls turn on him with a vengeance. Gawker notes that, as usual, a Bieber-related topic was trending on Twitter last night. The difference: This time it was #getsomejustin, the first trend started by his fans purely to torment him.

After hundreds of thousands of “Beliebers” tweeted it, Bieber’s manager came to his defense: “as for the rumors and the lies and the ‘i heard’ BS – ENOUGH! He is a kid and it is time we start acting like adults,” Scooter Braun wrote, seeming to momentarily forget who he was talking to.
